Invitation to Christ. (P.M.)
From Sion's mount I heard the sound; Gay sprang the flow'rets of the mead,
And gladden'd nature smil'd around. The voice of peace salutes mine ear ;
Christ's lovely voice perfumes the air. 2 Peace, troubled soul, whose plaintive moan
Hath taaght these rocks the note of woe;
And let thy tears forget to flow.
Which lulls thy pain, which heals thy wound. 3 Come, freely come, by sin opprest,
Unburthen here the weighty load ;
Safe on the bosom of thy God.
That sheaths th' avenger's glittring sword. 4 As spring the winter, day the night,
Peace sorrow's gloom shall chase away; And smiling joy, a seraph bright,
Shall 'tend thy steps, and near thee stay, Whilst glory weaves th' immortal crown, And waits to claim thee for her own.

Make us to feed upon thy word:
peace, 720. (C.M.) FATHER, before
we hence depart,
3 Thou fountain of eternal love,
Who gav’st thy Son to die,

For thy gospel's joyful sound,
May we ever,

Join every voice, and every heart; One solemn hymn to God we raise,
One final song of grateful praise.

3 Now to God the Three in One,
Be eternal glory done;
Who gave to all things breath ; Glory unto the gracious word,
Who sav'd us by his death ;
By whom all things do move :
And Cbrist, who did his Church redeem, And to the Holy Ghost, In essence One, in persons Three, Immortal praise and glory be, By all the heav'nly host.

And publish abroad, again and again; The Son's glorious merit, the Father's free grad The gifts of the Spirit, to Adam's lost race.

And sing th' eternal Father's praise, And glorify the Son. Give glory to the Holy Ghost, And join with all th' angelic host,
To bless the great Three-One.
