8 And now from Calvary,
We may stand here and spy;
Beyond this lower sky,
Far on high,
Mount Zion’s shining hill,
Where saints and angels dwell,
And hear them sing and tell,
Of our Lord, with accord,
And join in Moses’ song—
Heart and tongue.
 
9 Since hills are honor’d thus,
By our Lord in his course,
Let them not be by us,
Call’d accurs’d:
Forbid it mighty king,
But rather let us sing,
Since hills and mountains ring;
Echo fly through the sky,
And heaven hear the sound—
From the ground.
 
Hymn 28 • The sun that declines in the far western sky
HYMN 28. P. M.
 
The sun that declines in the far western sky,
Has roll’d o’er our heads till the summer’s  gone by;
And hush’d are the notes of the warblers of  spring
That in the green bow’r did exultingly sing.
