OPENING OF SERVICE
2  Lord, on Thee our souls depend; In compassion, now descend;
Fill our hearts with Thy rich grace, Tune our lips to sing Thy praise.
3  In Thine own appointed way, Now we seek Thee, here we stay: Lord, we know not how to go, Till a blessing Thou bestow.
4  Send some message from Thy word, That may joy and peace afford;
Let Thy Spirit now impart Full salvation to each heart.
Comfort those who weep and mourn, Let the time of joy return; Those that are cast down lift up, Strong in faith, in love, and hope.
Grant that those who seek may find Thee a God sincere and kind; Heal the sick, the captive free, Let us all rejoice in Thee.
William Hammond, 1745
55
2 While Thy glorious praise is sung, Touch my lips, unloose my tongue, That my joyful soul may bless Thee, the Lord my Righteousness.
[3 While the prayers of saints ascend, God of love, to mine attend; Hear me, for Thy Spirit pleads, Hear, for Jesus intercedes.
4 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 walked with God to-day.
James Montgomery, 1S12
