St. Basil

DES

ST. BASIL THE GREAT
ESTROYER of Error, strong champion of Right,
St. Basil, we hail thee and call on thy name;
Through Pontus and Asia shone out thy bright

light,
Cæsarea's great Pontiff, earth knew thy fame!

CHORUS
Hail glorious Apostle, St. Basil the Great,
The student's pure model; companion of youth;
We greet thee and pray that from heaven's high

state
We may share in thy holiness, virtue and truth!

2. Thou wert zealous and powerful of work and of.

word, The Godhead of Christ thou didst teach and

maintain, To His love by thy preaching the multitudes

stirred, Proclaimed, “Christ is God, in our hearts let Him reign.'

CHORUS.

3. Thy patience was wondrous, thy purity bright

As the snow on a mountain-peak lit by the sun,
Thou wert eager for crosses and walked in God's

sight,
And at death heard enraptured thy Savior's "well
done."

CHORUS.

4. May thy perfect example, be ever our guide,

Thy deep zeal for study, thy love for the Faith,
May the Church's success be our care and our

pride,
And our souls be like thine free from sin until
death!

CHORUS.

God
PRAISE TO THE HOLIEST
PRAISE
RAISE to the Holiest in the height,

And in the depth be praise:
In all His works most wonderful;

Most sure in all His ways !

2. O loving wisdom of our God!

When all was sin and shame,
A second Adam to the fight

And to the rescue came. Amen.

3. O wisest love! that flesh and blood,

Which did in Adam fail,
Should strive afresh against their foe,

Should strive and should prevail;

4. And that a higher gift than grace

Should flesh and blood refine,
God's Presence and His Very Self

And Essence all-divine.

5. O generous love! that He Who smote

In man for man the foe,
The double agony in man

For man should undergo;

6. And in the garden secretly,

And on the cross on high,
Should teach his brethren and inspire

To suffer and to die.

7. Praise to the Holiest in the height,

And in the depth be praise:
In all His works most wonderful;

Most sure in all His ways!

8.

To God the Father, God the Son,

And God the Holy Ghost,
Be praise from all who dwell on earth,

And from the heavenly host. Amen.

MY GOD, HOW WONDERFUL THOU ART

MY
My God, how wonderful Thou art!

Thy Majesty how bright!
How beautiful Thy mercy seat,

In depths of burning light !
How dread are Thine eternal years,

O everlasting Lord,
By prostrate spirits day and night,
Unceasingly ador'a.

2. How beautiful, how beautiful,

The sight of Thee must be,
Thine endless wisdom, boundless power,

And awful purity!
O how I fear Thee, Living God!

With deepest tend’rest fears,
And worship Thee with trembling hope

And penitential tears.

3. Yet I may love Thee, too, O Lord !

Almighty as Thou art;
For Thou hast stoop'd to ask of me

The love of my poor heart.
No earthly father loves like Thee;

No mother half so mild,
Bears and forbears, as Thou hast done

With me, Thy sinful child.
