Hymn 1 J. Mackness
WELCOME, happy morning.
This our festal day,
Welcome, thy returning,
Joyful be our lay.
Thee we hail with gladness,
While assembled here,
Welcome, yea thrice welcome,
Day of all the year.

We have journeyed onward
In the march of life,
With its scenes of gladness,
With its toil and strife.
But our loving Father
Leads us with His hand,
He will surely bring us
To that heavenly land.

Oft our feet grow weary
In the toilsome way,
Strength to us is given,
As our need each day.
Let us then take courage,
Boldly march along,
Bravely do our duty,
Till the victory's won.

Glory to the Father.
Glory to the Son,
Glory to the Spirit,
Thee blest Three in One.
Glory, praise, and honour,
Evermore shall be,
Through the countless ages
Of eternity.

Hymn 9 J Mackness

Peace, O my soul !
Thy Father knows thy every care,
Knows all thy wants, knows all thy fears:
Peace, O my soul !

Rest, O my soul !
The path He chooses thee to tread.
With thorns and briers though bespread,
Leads straight to Him.

Trust, O my soul !
His loving hand is always near
To help, to strengthen and to cheer:
Trust, O my soul !

Wait, O my soul:
'Bide thou His time, and thou shall see
Thy heart's desires He'll give to thee:

Wait, O my soul!
Rest, trust, and wait,
Thine earthly toils will soon be o'er,
Thy feet shall tread the heavenly shore,
Peace evermore.
