The Lord's Day. 337
While the prayers of saints ascend, God of love ! to mine attend ! Hear me, for Thy Spirit pleads ; Hear, for Jesus intercedes !
While I hearken to Thy law, Fill my soul with humble awe ; Till Thy Gospel bring to me Life and immortality :
While Thy ministers proclaim Peace and pardon in Thy Name, Through their voice, by faith, may I Hear Thee speaking from the sky !
From Thy house when I return, May my heart within me burn ; And at evening let me say, I have walk'd with God to-day !
James Montgomery. 1812.
Ere another Sabbath close, Ere again we seek repose, Lord ! our song ascends to Thee ; At Thy feet we bow the knee.
For the mercies of the day, For this rest upon our way, Thanks to Thee alone be given, Lord of earth, and King of Heaven !
Cold our services have been ; Mingled every prayer with sin ; But Thou canst and wilt forgive; By Thy grace alone we live !
