Middle of the Summer Blooms with Shepherd Divine, our wants relieve and Sing to the Lord a joyful song

  Shepherd Divine, our wants relieve
  In this our evil day;
To all thy tempted followers give
  The power to watch and pray.

  Long as our fiery trials last,
  Long as the cross we bear,
O let our souls on thee be cast
  In never-ceasing prayer.

  Till thou thy perfect love impart,
  Till thou thyself bestow,
Be this the cry of every heart,
  “I will not let thee go;
  “I will not let thee go, unless
  Thou tell thy name to me,
With all thy great salvation bless,
  And make me all like thee.

  “Then let me on the mountain-top
  Behold thy open face,
Where faith in sight is swallowed up,
  And prayer in endless praise.”

Charles WesleySing to the Lord a joyful song,
  Lift up your hearts, your voices raise,
To us his gracious gifts belong,
  To him our songs of love and praise.

For life and love, for rest and food,
  For daily help and nightly care,
Sing to the Lord, for he is good,
  And praise his Name, for it is fair.

For strength to those who on him wait,
  His truth to prove, his will to do;
Praise ye our God, for he is great;
  Trust in his Name, for it is true.

For joys untold that from above
  Cheer those who love his sweet employ,
Sing to our God, for he is love;
  Exalt his Name, for it is joy.

For life below, with all its bliss,
  And for that life, more pure and high,
That inner life which over this
  Shall ever shine, and never die.

For he is Lord of heav’n and earth,
Whom angels serve and saints adore,
The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
To whom be praise forever more.

J. S. B. Monsell
