This hymn-book has been prepared solely for the use of my own congregation. It includes therefore no hymns for children, for whose use another book has already been compiled.




HAIL, sacred day of earthly rest,
From toil and trouble free ;
Hail, day of light, that bringest light
And joy to me.

A holy stillness, breathing calm
On all the world around,
Uplifts my soul, O God, to Thee,
Where rest is found.

No sound of jarring strife is heard,
As weekly labours cease;

No voice, but those that sweetly sing
Sweet songs of peace.

I hear the organ loudly peal,
And soaring voices raise
To Thee, their great Creator, hymns
Of deathless praise.

All earthly things appear to fade,
As, rising high and higher,
The yearning voices strive to join
The heavenly choir.
