As some sweet summer some....

We reach that home at last, When life's short week of sorrow

Breaks o'er the earth again,
After a night of pain.
To cheer a thirsting land,
'Mid weary wastes of sand. 2 Lord, we would bring our burden
Of sinful thought and deed, In thy pure presence kneeling
From bondage to be freed; Our heart's most bitter sorrow
For all our work undone, So many talents wasted,
So few true conquests won. 3 Yet still, O Lord long-suffering,
Still grant us in our need Here in thy holy presence
The saving name to plead; And on thy day of blessings,
Within thy temple walls, To foretaste the pure worship
Of Zion's golden halls :
Our hearts exult to see;
Ascend, O God, to thee !
Our thoughts from earth withdraw;
We learn thy holy law. 2 We join to sing thy praises,
Lord of the Sabbath day; Each voice in gladness raises
Its loudest, sweetest lay! Thy richest mercies sharing,
Inspire us with thy love, By grace our souls preparing For nobler praise above.
