Refrain: Hark! I hear the angels singing, Morning breaks, your night is past, And the crystal bells are ringing Welcome to your home at last. 2 Heav’n at last—the Savior liveth, See Him on His blissful seat; Crowns of life to each He giveth, Crowns they cast before His feet. [Refrain] 3 Heav’n at last—my loved ones gather, Tell me of their joys on high; Tell me how the blessèd Father Wipes the tear from sorrow’s eye. [Refrain] 4 Heav’n at last—and now like Jesus, Every raptured saint I see; Now we see Him as He sees us, Evermore with Him to be.

My Savior

Author: Henry M. Wharton Meter: 8.7.8.7 D Appears in 2 hymnals First Line: Jesus, Thou art ever near me Lyrics: 1 Jesus, Thou art ever near me Blessèd Savior of my soul, And I hope to linger near Thee While the endless ages roll; Plunged in dark despair and sadness, Paths of sin and death I trod; Thou didst turn my grief to gladness, Taught me how to walk with God. 2 I have often grieved Thy Spirit, Put Thee to an open shame, Naught but wrath could hope to merit, Cast reproach upon Thy name; Down the lonely road I wandered, Of my doom was well aware; Every hope and project squandered, Hastening madly to despair. 3 Oh, how precious was the hour When Thy hand was laid on me, And by Thine almighty power, Broke my chains and set me free; Then my life was filled with glory, And my heart rejoiced in Thee; Now I love to tell the story How my blessèd Lord saved me. 4 Now no longer I am roaming In the wilderness of sin; As the days are going, coming, All is joy and peace within; Thou to me my strength hast given, And Thy grace so full and free, I am on my way to Heaven, Walking day by day with Thee Used With Tune: KARNATAKA Text Sources: Windows of Heaven (Baltimore: National Evangelization Society, 1898), alt.

Brightness of the Father's glory

Author: Robinson Meter: 8.7.8.7 D Appears in 37 hymnals Lyrics: 1 Brightness of the Father's glory, Shall thy praise unuttered lie? Break, my tongue, such guilty silence; Sing the Lord, who came to die. 2 Did the angels sing thy coming? Did the shepherds learn their lays? Shame would cover me, ungrateful, Should my tongue refuse to praise. 3 From the highest throne in glory To the cross of deepest woe, All to ransom guilty captives! Flow, my praise, forever flow. 4 Re-ascend, immortal Saviour; Leave thy footstool, take thy throne: Thence return, and reign forever; Be the kingdom all thine own.

From thy habitation holy

Author: McDuff Meter: 8.7.8.7 D Appears in 5 hymnals Lyrics: 1 From thy habitation holy, Spirit of all truth! descend, While we sinners, poor and lowly, At the throne of mercy bend. 2 Come thou, as the dew of Hermon Softly falls on Zion's hill; Let us in thy strength determine Henceforth to obey thy will. 3 Brooding o'er us as on chaos, Cause our darkness to retreat; Shine into our hearts, and lay us Humbled at the Mercy-Seat. 4 When the heart is crushed and broken, When bereavement dims the eye, Let us claim the promise spoken By those lips which can not lie. 5 When we tread the waves of Jordan, Oh, be near us, Sacred Guest! Seal to us our hope or pardon, Guide us to eternal rest. Topics: The Holy Spirit; Spirit of All Truth
