The God of Gladness.

If a mortal man might sing
Theme above all mortal wing,
If the creatures of the clay
With the name of God might play;
If the moulded breath might tell
All that stirs the soul's deep well;
|: I would sing a song of glee,
Father of all songs, to Thee. :||

[blocks in formation]

If my tongue must lisp its lay,
I will speak what best may;
I will say, Thou art my soul,
Weaving wisely through the whole;
I will say Thou art a power
Working good from hour to hour;
|: I will say, Thou art to me
Light and life, and love and glee. :||

4

Thou art each and Thou art all
In creation's living hall;

Every breathing shape of beauty,
Every solemn voice of duty,
Every high and lowly mood,

All that's great, and all that's good;
||: All is echo sent from Thee
God of gladness, God of glee. :||

Pious Resignation.

I Arise to praise the Lord,
Awake, my slumb'ring soul,
Strike deep the stirring chord,
Thy Maker to extol.
For He preserved thy life

When darkness closed around, 'Midst dangers ever rife,

He was thy refuge found.

2 He is thy rock, thy shield
And will not fail to be;
What off'ring canst thou yield
For so much love to thee?
If but sincere thy gift,
It will His favor find,
Thy heart to Him uplift,
And be to Him resigned.

There lives a God! Each fi- nite creature Proclaims His rule on sea and land;

Throughout all changing forms of na-ture

Is clear-ly shown His mighty hand.

In every place is heard the

call: "The Lord of Hosts has made us all."

I There lives a God! Each finite creature
Proclaims His rule ou sea and land;
Throughout all changing forms of nature
Is clearly shown His mighty hand.
In every place is heard the call:

"The Lord of Hosts has made us all."

2 There lives a God! Though storms are sweeping
Across our pilgrim paths of life;

More bright the morn that ends the weeping
Through nights of elemental strife.
Wherever God does chose my way-

I follow Him without dismay.

3 There lives a God! When life is waning—
His love is near from dread to save;
My years are all of His ordaining,
He only taketh what He gave.
The grave shall not my end all be-
Thou livest, God, I live in Thee.

God is in His Holy Temple.

Earthly thoughts, be silent now,
While with reverence we assemble,
And before His presence bow.

When we call upon His name,
Aiding every good endeavor,
Guiding every upward aim.

SECOND TUNE.

God is in His Holy Temple.

2 God is in His holy temple,

In the pure and holy mind;
In the reverent heart and simple;
In the soul from sense refined:
Banish then each base emotion,
Lift us up, O Lord, to Thee
Let our souls in pure devotion
Temples for Thy worship be.

God is in His Holy Temple.

(PSALM XL, 4.)
