At the sacred banquet proffered
To the Twelve in company.

Or a thousand, still he giveth
One same food that cannot waste.

One repast, a doom preparing
All unlike—’tis life or death:

All unbroken; present fully
Here abides the Signified.

To the pilgrim who hath striven;

Paschal Lamb its life-blood spilling
Manna to the fathers sent. `

PART 3
12. O true Bread, Good Shepherd,
tend us,
Jesu, of my love befriend us,
Thou refresh us, thou defend su,
Let thy goodness here attend us
Till the land of life we see;
Thou who all things canst and knowest,
who such food on earth bestowest.
Make us, where thy face thou showest.
Mid thy saints, though least and
lowest.
Guests and fellow heirs with thee

 

Hymn A&M 623 JERUSALEM, my happy home

1. JERUSALEM, my happy home,
When shall l come to thee?
When shall my sorrows have an end?
Thy Joys when shall I see?
O happy harbour of the saints!
O sweet and pleasant soil!
in thee no sorrow may be found.
No grief, no care, no toil.

There envy bears no sway;
There is no hunger, heat, nor cold,
But pleasure every way:
Thy walls are made of precious stones,
Thy bulwarks diamonds square;
Thy gates are of right orient pearl.
Exceeding rich and rare.

3. Ah, my sweet home, Jerusalem.
Would God l were in thee!
Would God my woes were at an end,
Thy Joys that I might see!

They see God face to face:
They triumph still, they still rejoice:
Most happy is their case.

4. Thy vineyards and thy orchards are
Most beautiful and fair,
Full furnished with trees and fruits
Most wonderful and rare:
Thy gardens and thy gallant walks
Continually are green:
There glow such sweet and pleasant
flowers
As nowhere else are seen.

5. Quite through the streets with
silver sound
The flood of life doth flow,
Upon whose banks on every side
The wood of life doth grow:
There trees for evermore bear fruit,
And evermore do spring;
There evermore the angels sit,
And evermore do sing.

6. There David stands with harp in hand
As master of the choir
Ten thousand times that man were
blest
That might this music hear:
Our Lady sings Magnificat
With tune surpassing sweet,
And all the virgins bear their parts,
Sitting about her feet.

7. Te Deum doth Saint Ambrose sing,
Saint Austin doth the like:
Old Simeon and Zachary
Have not their songs to seek:
There Magdalene hath left her moan,
And cheerfully doth sing
With blessed saints, whose harmony
in every street doth ring.

8. Jerusalem, my happy home,
Would God I were in thee!
would God my woes were at an end,
Thy joys that I might see!
Jerusalem, Jerusalem,
God grant I once may see
Thy endless Joys, and of the same
Partaker ay to be!

and tunes the joyous strain
of all his myriad children
that follow in thy train:
victorious over sorrow,
the countless band to see,
destroyed through his transgression,
but raised to life through thee.

4. The patriarchs in their triumph
thy praises nobly sing,
of old their promised offspring,
and now their Victor-King:
the prophets harp their gladness
that, whom their strains foretold,
in manifested glory
they evermore behold.

5. And David calls to memory
his own especial grace
in such clear prophet-vision
to see thee face to face:
the apostolic cohort,
thy valiant and thine own,
as royal co-assessors
are nearest to thy throne.

6. Thy martyrs reign in glory
who triumphed as they fell,
and by a thousand tortures
defeated death and hell;
and every patient sufferer,
who sorrow dared contemn,
for each especial anguish
hath one especial gem.

7. The valiant-souled confessors
put on their meet array,
who bare the heat and burden
of many a weary day:
the scorners of life’s pleasures,
their self-denial ceased,
sit down with thee and banquet
at thy eternal feast.

8. The virgins walk in beauty
amidst their lily-bowers,
the coronals assuming
of never-ending flowers;
and innocents sport gaily
through all the courts of light,
to whom thou gav’st the guerdon
before they fought the fight.

9. The soldiers of thine army,
their earthly struggles o’er,
with joy put off the armor
that they shall need no more:
for these, and all that battled
beneath their Monarch’s eyes,
the harder was the conflict
the brighter is the prize.

10. The penitent, attaining
full pardon in thy sight,
leave off the vest of sackcloth
and don the robe of white:
the bondsman and the noble,
the peasant and the king,
all gird one glorious Monarch
in one eternal ring.

 



Hymn A&M 626 Hail, glorious spirits, heirs of
light

1. Hail, glorious spirits, heirs of
light,
the high-born sons of fire,
whose souls burn clear, whose flames
shine bright:
all joy, yet all desire.

2. Hail, all you happy souls above,
who make that glorious ring
about the sparkling throne of
love,
and there forever sing.

 

Hymn A&M 627 LET love arise and praise him

1. LET love arise and praise him
Who came as light from heaven,
And shines as light reflected
in souls of men forgiven:
Through the dimness of our shadows.
Through the mist he came;
For the souls of them that see him
Blessed be his name.

2. He cometh as the morning.
The light of day arisen,
To them that sit in darkness.
The souls of men in prison:
Blessed light that deigns to visit
Man in his distress!
Welcome with thy wings of healing,
Sun of Righteousness!

3. Behold the sky at evening,
When day on earth is ending,
What clouds are seen at sunset
Upon the sun attending:
Where our sun is sinking from us
Into skies unknown,
All the clouds aflame with glory
Where he passes on.

4. So, where our Christ advances.
The Lord of Life undying,
He goes with flashing trumpets
And pomp of banners flying;
Not in unattended glory,
Nor in lonely might:
Multitudes that none can number
Answer back his light.

5. A burning mist around him,
A flock of souls unending,
A cloud of flying spirits,
Ascending and descending,
Swimming on in light below him,
Soaring on above,
Who are these that move in rapture
Round about his love?

6. O these are souls that pitied,
Because they knew his pity,
And found him in their neighbor
And met him in their city;
These are they whose life among us
Won the weak from vice;
These are they who, little knowing,
Shared his sacrifice.

7. Through them be healed our
wounded,
Through them he led our blindness
Redeemed our unbelieving,
Atoned for our unkindness.
Therefore in the light they follow
Where the Lamb doth go:
Therefore shines their dazzling raiment
White as glistening snow.

8. So Christ his temple enters.
The Priest that was so wounded.
And makes a new atonement
As Love by love surrounded:
Love amazing that transfigures
Where its light has shone,
Love that burns upon the altar.
Love that mounts the throne.

 



Hymn A&M 628 Come, let us join our friends above

1. Come, let us join our friends above,
that have obtained the prize,
and on the eagle wings of love
to joy celestial rise.

2. E’en now by faith we join our
hands
with those that went before;
and greet our Captain’s ransomed
bands
on the eternal shore.

 

Hymn A&M 629 Onward, Christian soldiers

1. Onward, Christian soldiers,
marching as to war,
with the cross of Jesus
going on before!
Christ, the royal Master,
leads against the foe;
forward into battle,
see, his banners go.
Onward, Christian soldiers,
marching as to war,
with the cross of Jesus
going on before!

2. At the sign of triumph
Satan’s host doth flee;
on then, Christian soldiers,
on to victory!
Hell’s foundations quiver
at the shout of praise;
Brothers, lift your voices,
loud your anthems raise.
Onward, etc.

3. Like a mighty army
moves the Church of God;
Brothers, we are treading
where the saints have trod;
we are not divided,
all one body we,
one in hope and doctrine,
one in charity.
Onward, etc.

4. Crown and thrones may perish,
kingdoms rise and wane,
but the Church of Jesus
constant will remain;
gates of hell can never
‘gainst that Church prevail;
we have Christ’s own promise,
and that cannot fail.
Onward, etc.

5. Onward, then, ye people,
join our happy throng;
blend with ours your voices
in the triumph song:
glory, laud, and honor,
unto Christ the King;
this through countless ages
men and angels sing.
Onward, etc.

skies

skies
Let the Creator’s praise arise:

Through every land by every tongue.

Ancient of everlasting days,

Jehovah, great I AM,
by earth and heaven confessed:
I bow and bless the sacred Name
for ever blest.

from earth we rise, and seek the joys

our Shield and Tower.

3. Though nature’s strength decay,
And earth and hell withstand.,
To Canaan’s bounds we urge our way
At his command:

with peace and plenty blessed:

and endless rest;

the Lord, our Righteousness,
triumphant o’er the world and sin,
the Prince of Peace;
on Zion’s sacred height
his kingdom he maintains,
and, glorious with his saints in light,
for ever reigns.

6. He keeps his own secure,
He guards them by his side.
Arrays in garments white and pure
His spotless Bride:
With streams of sacred bliss
Beneath serener skies,
With all the fruits of Paradise.
He still supplies.

7. Before the great three-one
They all exulting stand,
And tell the wonders he hath done
Through all their land:
The listening spheres attend,
And swell the growing fame,
And sing in songs which never end
The wondrous name.

8. The God who reigns on high,
the great archangels sing,
and “Holy, holy, holy,” cry,
“Almighty King!”
Who was and is the same,
and evermore shall be:
Jehovah, Father, great I AM,
we worship thee.”

9. Before the Saviour’s face
The ransomed nations bow,
O’erwhelmed at his almighty grace
For ever new;
He shows his prints of love-
They kindle to a flame,
And sound through all the worlds above
The slaughtered Lamb.

10. The whole triumphant host
give thanks to God on high;
“Hail, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost”
they ever cry;
hail, Abraham’s God and mine;
I join the heavenly lays;
all might and majesty are thine,
and endless praise!

Lord was slain,
the sons of Adam their lost home
regain.

and west they raise
in growing unison their songs of praise.

unto thee.

peace.

raise your Deliverer’s Name on high.

Still march in firm array. .
As warriors through the darkness toil
Till dawns the golden day.

2. Yes onward, onward still,
With hymn and chant and song,
Through gate and porch and
Columned aisle
The hallowed pathways throng:
With all the angel choirs,
With all the saints on earth,
pour out the strains of joy and bliss,
True rapture, noblest mirth.

3. Your clear Hosannas raise,
And Alleluias loud:
Whilst answering echoes upward float,
Like wreaths of incense cloud:
With voice as full and strong
As ocean’s surging praise,
Send forth the hymns our fathers loved,
The palms of ancient day.

4. Yes on, through life’s long path,
Still chanting as ye go,
From youth to age, by night and day
in gladness and in woe:
At last the march shall end,
The pilgrims find their Father’s house.
Jerusalem the blest.

5. Then on, ye pure in heart!
Rejoice, give thank, and sing;
Your festal banner wave on high.
The Cross of Christ your King.
Praise him who reigns on high.
The Lord whom we adore.
The Father, Son. and Holy Ghost.
One God for evermore.
