AUSTRIA 8. 7. D.

F. J. Haydn

A-MEN.

351

I Glorious things of thee are spoken, Zion, city of our God:

He whose word cannot be broken Formed thee for his own abode. On the rock of ages founded,

What can shake thy sure repose? With salvation's wall surrounded

Thou may'st smile at all thy foes.

2 See! the streams of living waters,

Springing from eternal love,
Well supply thy sons and daughters,
And all fear of want remove.
Who can faint while such a river

Ever flows their thirst to assuage ?—
Grace, which, like the Lord, the giver,
Never fails from age to age.

Rev. John Newton, 1725

352

I Lord and Father, great and holy!
Fearing nought, we come to thee;
Fearing nought, tho' weak and lowly,
For thy love has made us free.
By the blue sky bending o'er us,

By the green earth's flowery zone,
Teach us, Lord, the angel chorus,

"Thou art love, and love alone!"

2 Tho' the worlds in flame should perish, Suns and stars in ruin fall,

Trust in thee our hearts should cherish,
Thou to us be all in all.

And tho' heavens thy name are praising,
Seraphs hymn no sweeter tone
Than the strain our hearts are raising,
"Thou art love, and love alone!"
Archdeacon Frederick W. Farrar, 1831
