P.M. 1067 :
Alleluia : for the Lord God omnipotent
reigneth.–Rev. 19. 6. 1 SING Hallelujah! forth in duteous praise,
An endless Hallelujah!
2 Ye next, who stand before the Eternal Light, In hymning choirs re-echo to the height,
An endless Hallelujah ! 3 The Holy City shall take up your strain, And, with glad songs resounding, wake again,
An endless Hallelujah! 4 Ye who have gained at length your palms in
bliss, Victorious ones, your chant shall still be this,
An endless Hallelujah! 5 There, in one grand acclaim, for ever ring The strains which tell the honour of your King,
An endless Hallelujah! 6 While Thee, by whom were all things made,
we praise For ever, and tell out in sweetest lays,
An endless Hallelujah! 7 Almighty Christ, to Thee our voices sing Glory for evermore; to Thee we bring
An endless Hallelujah!
J. ELLERTON. 1865. THE HOLY SPIRIT:
HIS WORK AND WORSHIP. 1068 The promise of the Holy Ghost.-Aets 2. 33. 1 CREAT YREATOR Spirit, by whose aid
The world's foundations first were laid,
And make Thy temples worthy Thee. 2 0 Source of uncreated heat,
The Father's promised Paraclete !
To sanctify us while we sing.
Rich in Thy sevenfold energy!
And stamp Thine image on our hearts. 4 Create all new; our wills control,
Subdue the rebel in our soul;
peace, the fruit of faith, bestow :
Protect and guide us in the way. 5 Immortal honours, endless fame,
Attend the Almighty Father's name;
The Saviour Son be glorified,
LATIN HYMN. VII. CENT.
TR. BY DRYDEN. 1693.
1069 I will pour out in those days of My Spirit.
Acts 2. 18. 1 WHEN ";
CHEN God of old came down from heaven, Before His feet the clouds were riven,
Half darkness and half flame.
He came in power and love;
Hovered His Holy Dove.
In sudden torrents dread,
On every sainted head.
The voice exceeding loud,
Thrilled from the deep, dark cloud; 5 So, when the Spirit of our God
Came down His flock to find,
A rushing, mighty wind.
The sinful world around;
No place for it is found.
7 Come, Lord! come Wisdom, Love and Power,
Open our ears to hear;
JOHN KEBLE. 1845.
1070 If I depart
, I will send Him unto you.
John 16. 7.
His tender, last farewell,
With us to dwell.
With sheltering wings outspread, The holy balm of peace and love
On each to shed.
To teach, convince, subdue;
As viewless too.
A gracious, willing Guest,
Wherein to rest.
Soft as the breath of even, That checks each fault, that calms each fear,
And speaks of heaven. 6 And every virtue we possess,
And every victory won,
Are His alone.
7 Spirit of purity and grace,
Our weakness pitying see;

1071 The Comforter
whom I will send unto you.—John 15. 26. YOME to our poor nature's night,
Holy Ghost, the Infinite,
Sick and faint--Thy strength afford;
Guide, subdue our wayward will,
Make Thy temple in each breast;
And with voiceless groanings plead
