My progress while I live,
On this terrestrial ball.
 
4 Help me O Lord to live,
And thy commandments keep,
Thy Spirit freely give,
Until in thee I sleep.
 
Hymn 65 • Come all ye sons of Zion
HYMN 65. P. M.
 
1 Come all ye sons of Zion,
And let us praise the Lord:
His ransom’d are returning,
According to his word.
In sacred songs, and gladness,
They walk the narrow way,
And thank the Lord who bro’t them
To see the latter day.
 
2 Come, ye dispers’d of Judah,
Join in the theme, and sing
With harmony unceasing,
The praises of your King
Whose arm is now extended
(On which the world may gaze)
To gather up the righteous,
In these, the latter days.
 
3 Rejoice, rejoice, O Israel!
And let your joys abound; [p. 85]
My progress while I live,
On this terrestrial ball.
 
4 Help me O Lord to live,
And thy commandments keep,
Thy Spirit freely give,
Until in thee I sleep.
