Hymn Selection



O GOD, our hearts are filled with joy,
And praises rich our lips employ,
As we anticipate the hour
When Thou wilt manifest Thy power -
When heav'n and earth shall pass away,
Ended for ever death's dark sway;
And Thou wilt then make all things new,
New heav'n and earth bring into view -
When Thou shalt wipe away all tears,
Banish all sorrow, pain, and fears:
With rapture then each heart will swell,
When Thou Thyself with men shalt dwell.
Thy tabernacle then shall be
The centre blest, and all will see
Thy glory, love without recall,
And Thou, O God, be all in all!

J.W. Parry
