Hymn 83. PM How pleasant 'tis to see

Isaac Watts
1. How pleasant 'tis to see

Kindred and friend agree;

Each in his proper station move,

And each fulfil his part,

With sympathizing heart,

In all the cares of life and love!
2. 'Tis like the ointment shed

On Aaron's sacred head,

Divinely rich, divinely sweet:

The oil through all the room

Diffused a choice perfume,

Ran through his robes, and blest his feet.
3. Like fruitful showers of rain,

That water all the plain,

Descending from the neighboring hills;

Such streams of pleasure roll

Through every friendly soul,

Where love like heavenly dew distils.
Hymn 84. PM How pleased and blest was I

Isaac Watts
1. How pleased and blest was I,

To hear the people cry,

"Come let us seek our Lord today!"

Yes, with a cheerful zeal,

We'll haste to Zion's hill,

And there our vows and honors pay.
2. Zion, thrice happy place,

Adorn'd with wonderous grace,

And walls of strength embrace thee round!

In thee our tribes appear,

To pray, and praise, and hear

The sacred gospel's joyful sound
3. There David's greater Son

Has fix'd his royal throne;

He sits for grace and judgement there:

He bids the saint be glad,

He makes the sinner sad,

And humble souls rejoice with fear.
4. May peace attend thy gate,

And joy within thee wait,

To bless the soul of every guest:

The man that seeks thy peace,

And wishes thine increase,

A thousand blessings on him rest!
5. My tongue repeats her vows,

"Peace to this sacred house!

For here my friends and kindred dwell:"

And since my glorious God

Makes thee his blest abode,

My soul shall ever love thee well.
Hymn 85. PM Though in the outward church below

John Newton
1. Though in the outward church below,

The wheat and tares together grow;

Jesus ere long will weed the crop,

And pluck the tares in anger up.
For soon the reaping time will come,

And angels shout the harvest home.
2. Will it relieve their horrors there,

To recollect their stations here;

How much they heard, how much they knew,

How much among the wheat they grew?
3. No! this will aggravate their case,

They perish'd under means of grace;

To them the word of life and faith

Became an instrument of death.
4. We seem alike when thus we meet,

Strangers might think we all were wheat;

But to the Lord's all-searching eyes,

Each heart appears without disguise,
5. The tares are spared for various ends,

Some for the sake of praying friends;

Others the Lord, against their will,

Employs his counsels to fulfil.
6. But though they grow so tall and strong,

His plan will not require them long;

In harvest, when he saves his own,

The tares shall into hell be thrown.
7. Oh! awful thought, and is it so?

Must all mankind the harvest know?

Is every man a wheat or tare?

Me, for that harvest, Lord, prepare.
Hymn 86. CM O God! our help in ages past

Isaac Watts
1. O God! our help in ages past,

Our hope for years to come,

Our shelter from the stormy blast,

And our eternal home.
2. Under the shadow of thy throne;

Still may we dwell secure;

Sufficient is thy arm alone,

And our defence is sure.
3. Before the hills in order stood,

Or earth receiv'd her frame,

From everlasting thou art God,

To endless years the same.
4. A thousand ages in thy sight

Are like an evening gone;

Short as the watch that ends the night,

Before the rising sun.
5. The busy tribes of flesh and blood,

With all their cares and fears,

And carried downward by the flood,

And lost in foll'wing years.
6. Time, like an ever-rolling stream,

Bears all its sons away;

They fly, forgotten, as a dream

Dies at the op'ning day.
7. O God! our help in ages past,

Our hope for years to come;

Be thou our guide while life shall last,

And our perpetual home!
Hymn 87. CM Hark! from the tombs a doleful sound

Isaac Watts
1. Hark! from the tombs a doleful sound,

My ears attend the cry;

"Ye living men, come view the ground

Where you must shortly lie.
2. "Princes, this clay must be your bed,

In spite of all your tow'rs;

The tall, the wise, the reverend head,

Shall lie as low as ours."
3. Great God! is this our certain doom!

And are we still secure!

Still walking downward to the tomb,

And yet prepar'd no more!
4. Grant us the pow'r of quick'ning grace,

To fit our souls to fly;

Then, when we drop this dying flesh,

We'll rise above the sky.
Hymn 88. CM Why do we mourn for dying friends

Isaac Watts
1. Why do we mourn for dying friends,

Or shake at death's alarms?

'Tis but the voice that Jesus sends,

To call them to his arms.
2. Are we not tending upward too,

As fast as time can move?

Now should we wish the hours more slow,

To keep us from our love.
3. Why should we tremble to convey,

Their bodies to the tomb?

There once the flesh of Jesus lay,

And left a long perfume.
4. The graves of all his saints he blest,

And soften'd every bed:

Where should the dying members rest,

But with their dying Head?
5. Thence he arose, ascending high,

And show'd our feet the way:

Up to the Lord our flesh shall fly,

At the great rising day.
6. Then let the last loud trumpet sound,

And bid our kindred rise;

Awake, ye nations under ground;

Ye saints, ascend the skies.
Hymn 89. LM Why should we start and fear to die?

Isaac Watts
1. Why should we start and fear to die?

What tim'rous worms we mortals are!

Death is the gate to endless joy,

And yet we dread to enter there.
2. The pains, the groans, they dying strife,

Fright our approaching souls away;

And we shrink back again to life,

Fond of our prison and our clay.
3. O if my Lord would come and meet,

My soul would stretch her wings in


Fly fearless through death's iron gate,

Nor feel the terrors as she past!
4. Jesus can make a dying bed

Feel soft as downy pillows are,

While on his breast I lean my head,

And breathe my life out sweetly there.
Hymn 90. PM The Spirit of God like a fire is burning

William W. Phelps (LDS)
1. The Spirit of God like a fire is burning;

The latter day glory begins to come forth;

The visions and blessings of old are returning;

The angels are coming to visit the earth.
We'll sing & we'll shout with the armies of heaven:

Hosanna, hosanna to God and the Lamb!

Let glory to them in the highest be given,

Henceforth and forever: amen and amen!
2. The Lord is extending the saints' understanding—

Restoring their judges and all as at first;

The knowledge and power of God are expanding;

The vail o'er the earth is beginning to burst,
3. We call in our solemn assemblies, in spirit,

To spread forth the kingdom of heaven abroad.

That we through our faith may begin to inherit

The visions and blessings, and glories of God.
4. We'll wash, and be wash'd, and with oil be anointed

Withal not omitting the washing of feet:

For he that receiveth his PENNY appointed,

Must surely be clean at the harvest of wheat.
5. Old Israel that fled from the world for his freedom,

Must come with the cloud and the pillar, amain:

A'Moses, and Aaron, and Joshua lead him,

And feed him on manna from heaven again.
6. How blessed the day when the lamb and the lion

Shall lie down together without any ire;

And Ephraim be crown'd with his blessing in Zion,

As Jesus descends with his chariots of fire!
Adieu, my dear brethren adieu, 51

Alas! and did my Savior bleed!, 61

An angel came down from the mansions of glory, 15

And did my Savior die, 64

Arise, my soul, arise, 59

Awake! for the morning is come, 40

Awake, my soul, and with the sun, 41

Awake, O ye people! the Savior is coming, 31


Before this earth from chaos sprung, 72

Behold the Savior of mankind, 60


Come all ye saints, who dwell on earth, 68

Come all ye sons of Zion, 64

Come let us sing an evening hymn, 42

Come ye children of the kingdom, 52


Earth with her ten thousand flowers, 12

Ere long the vail will rend in twain, 18


Farewell, our friends and brethren!, 49

From Greenland's icy mountains, 75

From the regions of glory an angel descended, 10


Gently raise the sacred strain, 22

Glorious things of thee are spoken, 6

Glory to thee, my God, this night, 44

God spake the word, and time began, 69

Great God! to thee my evening song, 45

Great is the Lord: 'tis good to praise, 70

Guide us, O thou great Jehovah, 14


Hark! from the tombs a doleful sound, 90

He died! the great Redeemer died!, 11

How firm a foundation, 85

How often in sweet miditation, my mind, 82

How pleasant 'tis to see, 86

How pleased and blest was I, 87


I know that my Redeemer lives, 81

In ancient days men fear'd the Lord, 77


Jesus the name that charms our fears, 67

Jesus, mighty King in Zion, 53

Jordan's tide the prophet stands, 53

Joy to the world! the Lord will come!, 15


Know then that ev'ry soul is free, 3


Let all the saints their hearts prepare, 30

Let ev'ry mortal ear attend, 4

Let thy kingdom, blessed Savior, 83

Let us pray, gladly pray, 31

Let Zion in her beauty rise, 66

Lord in the morning thou shalt hear, 37

Lord thou wilt hear me when I pray, 43


Mortals, awake! with angels join, 79

My God, how endless is thy love, 39

My soul is full of peace and love, 19


Now let us rejoice, 17

Now we'll sing with one accord, 24


O God the eternal Father, 56

O God! our help in ages past, 89

O happy souls who pray, 10

O Jesus! the giver Of all we enjoy, 76

O stop and tell me Red Man, 63

Once more, my soul, the rising day, 38


Praise to God, immortal praise, 13


Redeemer of Israel, 8


Salem's bright King, Jesus by name, 55

See all creation join, 9

See how the morning sun Pursues his shining way, 39


The day is past and gone, 47

The gallant ship is under way, 48

The glorious day is rolling on, 71

The happy day has rolled on, 20

The Lord into his garden comes, 80

The Spirit of God like a fire is burning, 92

The sun that declines in the far western sky, 28

The time is nigh that happy time, 7

The towers of Zion soon shall rise, 29

There is a land the Lord will bless, 33

There's a feast of fat things for the righteous preparing, 35

There's a power in the sun, 36

This earth was once a garden place, 21

Though in the outward church below, 88

Through all the world below, 25

Thy mercy, my God, is the theme of my song, 74

To him that made the world, 16

'Twas on that dark, and solemn night, 58


We're not ashamed to own our Lord, 14

What fair one is this, from the wilderness trav'ling, 4

What wond'rous things we now behold, 32

When earth was dress'd in beauty, 62

When Joseph his brethren beheld, 23

When restless on my bed I lie, 46

Why do we mourn for dying friends, 90

Why should we start and fear to die?, 91


Yes, my native land, I love thee, 50
