Hymn selection ~Wednesday, December 2
(Emily F. Seal)
What is thy birthright, man,
Child of the perfect One;
What is thy Father’s plan
For His beloved son?
Thou art Truth’s honest child,
Of pure and sinless heart;
Thou treadest undefiled
In Christly paths apart.
Vain dreams shall disappear
As Truth dawns on the sight;
The phantoms of thy fear
Shall flee before the light.
Take then the sacred rod;
Thou art not error’s thrall;
Thou hast the gift of God-
Dominion over all.
(Edmund Beale Sargant)
Dear Father-Mother, Thou dost grant
All good and perfect gifts to me;
‘Tis mine to raise this beacon here,
Obedience unto Thee.
He knows not death who Life obeys,
Nor errs at all when Truth he heeds;
While merged in Love, what hold has hate
Upon his thoughts or deeds?
Eternal Life and Truth and Love,
They who obey Thine every call,
Thy freemen are, and freely have
Dominion over all.
(Irving C. Tomlinson)
A voice from heaven we have heard,
The call to rise from earth;
Put armor on, the sword now gird,
And for the fight go forth.
The foe in ambush claims our prize,
Then heed high heaven’s call.
Obey the voice of Truth, arise,
And let not fear enthrall.
The cause requires unswerving might:
With God alone agree.
Then have no other aim than right;
End bondage, O be free.
Depart from sin, awake to love:
Your mission is to heal.
Then all of Truth you must approve,
And only know the real.
