They cannot die whose lives are part

Of that great life which is to be, Whose hearts beat with the world's great

heart,

And throb with its high destiny.

Then mourn not those who, dying, gave
A gift of greater light to man :
Death stands abashed before the brave;
They own a life he may not ban.

LET IN LIGHT.

Let in light-the holy light,
Brothers, fear it never;
Darkness smiles, and wrong grows right;
Let in light forever!

Let in light! When this shall be
Joy at once and duty,
Men in common things shall see
Goodness, truth and beauty.

Let in light-the holy light,
Brothers, fear it never,
Darkness smiles and wrong grows right;
Let in light forever!

I will hope and work and love,
Singing to the hours,

While the stars are bright above,
And below the flowers.

Who in such a world as this
Could not heal his sorrow?
Welcome this sweet hour of bliss;
Sunrise comes to-morrow.

Let in light-the holy light,
Brothers, fear it never,
Darkness smiles and wrong grows right;
Let in light forever!

THE GAIN OF MAN.

Oh sometimes gleams upon my sight
Thro' present wrong th' eternal right;
And step by step since time began,
I see the steady gain of man.

That all of good the past hath had,
Remains to make our own time glad;
Our common daily life divine,
And every land a Palestine.

For still the new transcends the old
In signs and tokens manifold;
Slaves rise up men, the olive waves
With roots deep set in battle graves.

Through the harsh noises of our day,
A low sweet prelude finds its way:
Thro' clouds of doubt and creeds of fear
A light is breaking, calm and clear.

O, COME, LET US SING.

O come let us sing unto the Lord, let us heartily rejoice in the God of our salvation; Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving and show ourselves glad in Him with psalms;

For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all powers.

In His hands are all the ends of the earth and the strength of the hills is His also. The sea is His and He made it, and His hands prepared the dry land.

O come let us worship and bow down before the Lord, our Maker;

For He is the Lord our God and we are the people of His pasture, the sheep of His hand.

O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness, let the whole earth stand in awe of Him; For He cometh to judge the earth and with righteousness to judge the world and the people with His truth.

174.

SING UNTO THE LORD.

O sing unto the Lord a new song; for He hath done marvelous things; His right hand and His holy arm, hath gotten Him the victory.

The Lord hath made known His salvation; His righteousness hath He openly shewed in the sight of the nations.

He hath remembered His mercy and His truth toward the house of Israel; all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.

Make a joyful sound unto the Lord, all the earth; make a loud sound, and rejoice, and sing praise.

Sing unto the Lord with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm.

With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the Lord, the King. Let the sea roar, and the fullness thereof; let sing they that dwell therein.

Let the floods clap their hands: let the hills

be joyful together

Before the Lord; for He cometh to judge the earth with the righteouness shall He judge the world, and the people with equity.

175.

O LORD MOST HOLY.

O Lord most holy, O God most mighty,

O loving Father Thee we would be praising with joyful lips,

For Thou hast revealed to us Thy grace and

mercy.

Teach us to know Thee, teach us to love Thee, To follow after holiness, so in temptation and the hour of sadness

We shall find comfort and help in Thee. Guide us, O Father, O loving Father, Amen, · Amen.

176.

WORSHIP THE LORD, JEHOVAH.

Worship the Lord, Jehovah, before Him bow in meekness;

For He is ever mindful of His needy children on earth.

Call now upon His name, entreat His tender

mercy,

For He doth promise answer unto prayer, the prayer of His children upon the earth. His mercy never endeth, His love endureth

ever,

And they who seek Him find Him a present help in need;

To Him address your pray'r, on Him now call with fear,

And from His throne in heaven will answer come unto your waiting hearts. Amen.

177.

THOU SHALT LOVE THE LORD.

Thou shalt love the Lord, thy God, with all thy heart,

With all thy soul, with all thy might, and Him only shalt thou serve.

178.

HEAR MY PRAYER.

Save me O God by Thy name, and judge me by Thy strength.

Cast me not from Thy presence, and take not Thy holy spirit from me.

Save me O God by Thy name, give ear to the words of my mouth,

Give ear to my prayer, hear my prayer.
