SABBATH HYMN.

"I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day."--Rev. 1:10.

"Zeige dich uns ohne Huelle."

Klopstock

transl., Jane Borthwick, 1858

Lord, remove the veil away,

Let us see Thyself to-day!

Thou who camest from on high,

For our sins to bleed and die,

Help us now to cast aside

All that would our hearts divide,

With the Father and the Son

Let Thy living Church be one.

147

Oh! from earthly cares set free,

Let us find our rest in Thee!

May our cares and conflicts cease

In the calm of Sabbath peace,

That Thy people, here below,

Something of the bliss may know,

Something of the rest and love

In the Sabbath-home above.

From beyond the grave's dark night

What mild radiance meets my sight?

Softly stealing on the ear,

What strange music do I hear!

'Tis the gwden crowns on high,

'Tis the chorus of the sky!

Lord, Thy sinful child prepare

For a place and portion there.

Give my soul the spotless dress

Of Thy perfect righteousness;

Then at length, a welcome guest,

I shall enter to the feast,

Take the harp and raise the song,

All Thy ransomed ones among;

Earthly cares and sorrows o'er,

Joys to last for evermore!
