Processional 389 (2) Rise, crowned with light​
Sermon 494 O holy city, seen of John​
Rise, crowned with light, imperial Salem, rise!
Exalt thy towering head and lift thine eyes;
see heaven its sparkling portals wide display
and break upon thee in a flood of day. 

See a long race thy spacious courts adorn;
see future sons and daughters, yet unborn,
in crowding ranks on every side arise
demanding life, impatient for the skies.

See barbarous nations at thy gates attend,
walk in thy light, and in thy temple bend;
see thy bright altars thronged with prostrate kings,
while every land its joyful tribute brings. 

The seas shall waste, the skies in smoke decay,
rocks fall to dust, and mountains melt away;
but fixed this Word, this saving pow'r, remains;
thy realms shall last, thine own Messiah reigns.

Recessional 393 Faith of our fathers


O holy city, seen of John,
where Christ, the Lamb, doth reign,
within whose foursquare walls shall come
no night, nor need, nor pain,
and where the tears are wiped from eyes 
that shall not weep again!

Hark, how from men whose lives are held
more cheap than merchandise;
from women struggling sore for bread,
from little children's cries,
there swells the sobbing human plaint
that bids thy walls arise!

O shame to us who rest content 
while lust and greed for gain 
in street and shop and tenement 
wring gold from human pain,
and bitter lips in blind despair cry,
"Christ hath died in vain!"

Give us, O God, the strength to build
the city that hath stood
too long a dream, whose laws are love,
whose ways are brotherhood,
and where the sun that shineth is
God's grace for human good.

Already in the mind of God
that city riseth fair:
lo, how its splendor challenges
the souls that greatly dare--
yea, bids us seize the whole of life
and build its glory there.

Communion 201 Strengthen for service
Faith of our fathers! living still
in spite of dungeon, fire, and sword:
O how our hearts beat high with joy,
whene'er we hear that glorious word:

Refrain:
Faith of our fathers, holy faith!
We will be true to thee till death.

Our fathers, chained in prisons dark,
Were still in heart and conscience free:
And truly blest would be our fate,
If we, like them, should die for thee. Refrain.

Faith of our fathers! faith and prayer
shall win all nations unto thee;
and through the truth that comes from God,
mankind shall then indeed be free. Refrain

Faith of our fathers! we will love
both friend and foe in all our strife:
and preach thee, too, as love knows how,
by kindly deeds and virtuous life. Refrain

Strengthen for service, Lord, the hands
That holy things have taken;
Let ears that now have heard thy songs
To clamor never waken.

Lord, may the tongues which ‘Holy’ sang
Keep free from all deceiving;
The eyes which saw Thy love be bright
Thy blessèd hope perceiving.

The feet that tread Thy holy courts
From light do Thou not banish;
The bodies by Thy body fed
With Thy new life replenish.
