To the Lamb our song shall be
Through a glad eternity.
Farewell earthly mom and even,
Sun and moon, and stars of heaven :
Heavenly portals ope before me ;
Welcome Christ, and all His glory.

THE COVENANTERS' MIDNIGHT

HYMN.

O Thou that dwellest in the heaven so high,
Beyond yon star, within yon sky;
Where the dazzling fields need no other light,
Nor the sun by day, nor the moon by night!
Though countless myriads around Thee stand, —
For the sake of Him on Thy right hand,
O, think on the souls He has died for here,
Who are wandering in darkness, in doubt and fear!

The powers of darkness are all abroad,
They own no Saviour,—they fear no God;
And we are wandering in dumb dismay,
Our night is dreary, and dim our day!
O, turn not Thou Thy face away!
For if Thou turnest Thy face away,
We have none to look to, and none to trust,
We are weak and helpless and sinful dust.

Thine aid, Almighty One, we crave ! Not shorten'd is Thine arm to save. Alas, from Thee we here sojourn,Return to us, O God, return !
