Hymn 356

To Thee, O God, we bring our adoration,
To Love divine, in whom we live and move;
For Thou hast shown to us our perfect selfhood
In Thy loved Son, whom Jesus came to prove.

We are Thy children, Thou our Father-Mother,
And we would ever follow Thy behest:
Help us to understand Thy holy counsel,
For in obedience lies our active rest.

We, now redeemed through Love, return to Zion,
Singing to Thee our deeply grateful praise;
For we are Christ’s, and Christ is Thine,
O Father: His joy remains in us through endless days.


Hymn 8

Abide with me; fast falls the eventide;
The darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide.
When other helpers fail, and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, O abide with me.

I need Thy presence every passing hour;
What but Thy grace can foil the tempter’s power?
Who like Thyself my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, O abide with me.

I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless;
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness;
Where is death’s sting? where, grave, thy victory?
I triumph still, if Thou abide with me.


Hymn 204

O for a faith that will not shrink,
Though pressed by every foe;
That will not tremble on the brink
Of any earthly woe;

A faith that shines more bright and clear
When tempests rage without;
That when in danger knows no fear,
In darkness feels no doubt;

O, give us such a faith as this,
And then, whate’er may come,
We taste e’en here the hallowed bliss
Of our eternal home.
