6 Lord, bid the clouds depart,
HYMN 271. C. M.
ERUSALEM, my happy home! Name ever dear to me! When shall my labors have an end, In joy, and peace, and Thee!
2 Thy walls are made of precious stones,
3 0 my sweet home, Jerusalem!
4 Thy gardens, and Thy goodly walks, Continually are green,
Where grow such sweet and pleasant flow
As nowhere else are seen.
5 Right through Thy streets, with pleasing sound,
The living waters flow,
And on the banks on either side,
6 Those trees each month yield ripened fruit;
For evermore they spring,
And all the nations of the earth
7 Oh, mother dear; Jerusalem,
When shall I come to Thee? When shall my sorrows have an end? Thy joys when shall I see?
HYMN 272. C. M.
ON Jordan's stormy banks I stand,
And cast a wishful eye
2 Oh, the transporting, rapturous scene,
3 O'er all those wide, extended plains Shines one eternal day;
There God the Son forever reigns,
4 No chilling winds, nor poisonous breath, Can reach that healthful shore;
Sickness and sorrow, pain and death, Are felt and feared no more.
5 When shall I reach that happy place, And be forever blest?
When shall I see my Father's face,
6 Filled with delight, my raptured soul Can here no longer stay;
Though Jordan's waves around me roll, Fearless I'd launch away.
HYMN 273. P. M.
AY of wrath! that day of mourning! See fulfilled the prophet's warning, Heaven and earth in ashes burning!
2 Oh, what fear man's bosom rendeth, When from heaven the Judge descendeth, On whose sentence all dependeth!
3 Lo! the trumpet's wondrous swelling Peals through each sepulchral dwelling, All before the Throne compelling.
Oh, sweet and blessed country, That eager hearts expect! Jesus, in mercy bring us
To that dear land of rest; Who art, with God the Father, And Spirit, ever blest.
NOR thec, oh dear, dear country,
Thy happy name, they weep.
Is unction to the breast,
2 Oh one, oh only mansion!
