ETOOL)

Blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed!

E saw Thee not when Thou didst come

mp WE To this poor world of sin and death,

Nor e'er beheld Thy cottage home

In that despised Nazareth;
mf But we believe Thy footsteps trod

Its streets and plains, Thou Son of God.
p 2 We did not see Thee lifted high

Amid that wild and savage crew,
Nor heard Thy meek, imploring cry,

* Forgive, they know not what they do';
mp

Yet we believe the deed was done

Which shook the earth, and veiled the sun.
m 3 We stood not by the empty tomb

Where late Thy sacred body lay,
Nor sat within that upper room,

Nor met Thee in the open way;
mf But we believe that angels said,
Why seek the living with the dead ?'

O Lord, open Thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth Thy praise.'

WEETER sounds than music knows SWEhere in dmthanuel's name;

2 When He came, the angels sung,

Glory be to God on high !' All her hopes my spirit owes

Lord, unloose my stammering tongue: To His birth and cross and shame.

Who should louder sing than I?
m 3 Did the Lord a Man become

That He might the law fulfil,
P

Bleed and suffer in my room,

And canst thou, my tongue, be still ?
mf 4 No! I must my praises bring,

Though they worthless are, and weak;
For, should I refuse to sing,

Sure the very stones would speak.
O my Saviour, Shield, and Sun,

Shepherd, Brother, Husband, Friend-
Every precious name in one-

Thy sun shall no more go down . . for the Lord shall be thine everlasting light.'

IGHT of the world ! for ever, ever shining,

There is no change in Thee;
True Light of life, all joy and health enshrining,

Thou canst not fade nor flee.
2 Thou hast arisen, but Thou descendest never;

To-day shines as the past;
All that Thou wast Thou art, and shalt be ever,

Brightness from first to last.
3 Night visits not Thy sky, nor storm, nor sadness;

Day fills up all its blue,
Unfailing beauty, and unfaltering gladness,

And love for ever new.
f 4 Light of the world! undimming and unsetting,

8. 8
O shine each mist away;
Banish the fear, the falsehood, and the fretting;

8 Be our unchanging Day.

A - men.
