For whose calm I long have prayed;
Trees of life—celestial arbor—
I repose beneath their shade.
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]

Every raptured saint I see;
Now we see Him as He sees us,
Evermore with Him to be. [Refrain] Used With Tune: CASTILLO Text Sources: Songs of Praise Number Two by J. Wilbur Chapman and Owen F. Pugh (Philadelphia: Westminster Press, 1905)
Author: Anon. Meter: 184.108.40.206 D Appears in 16 hymnals Lyrics: 1 Blessed angels, high in heaven,
O'er the penitent rejoice;
Hast thou for thy brother striven
With an importuning voice?
2 Art thou not thy brother's keeper?
Canst thou not his soul obtain?
He that wakes his brother sleeper,
Double light himself shall gain.
3 Then, when ends this life's short fever,
They, who many turn to God,
Like the stars shall shine for ever,
In eternal brotherhood!

Author: Henry M. Wharton Meter: 220.127.116.11 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.
Author: Robinson Meter: 18.104.22.168 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.

Reaches out the crown of love.

To thy dear Redeemer's breast,

To his everlasting rest.

Bear a momentary pain;

Author: McDuff Meter: 188.8.131.52 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

Lowly at thy feet I lie;
Thou for such art interceding
At the Father's throne on high.
Friend of sinners, blessed Saviour,
Let me linger 'neath thy Cross;
Seeking there thy gracious favor,
All things else I count but loss. A-men.
2 Near the mercy-seat abiding
Let my soul thy glory see;
In thy grace alone confiding,
Perfect peace I find in thee.
Tune my heart to sing thy praises
Till I join the heavenly throng
Which through endless ages raises
Sweetest praise with harp and song.
