The sermon followed. The Primate leaving his seat near to the entrance to the choir, proceeded to the pulpit. He announced his text from Ephesians, 4 c., 25 v., We are members one of another." The hymn written by the Rev. J. S. Stone for the occasion was sung to Dr. Wesley's well-known tune Aurelia, respecting which we will only say that almost any other tune would have been better calculated vi give expression to the sentiment embodied in the hyran. It is also a matter for regret that the old 100th Psalm was at the eleventh hour eliminated from the service. Mr. Stone's hymn was follows :— o Thou, our soul's salvation! Our hope for earthly weal! We who, in tribulation, Did for Thy mercy kneel, Lift up glad hearts before Thee, And eyes no longer dim; t And for Thy grace adore Thee '1 I In Eucharistic hymn. Forth went the nation weeping With precious seed of prayer; J, Hope's awful vigil keeping 'Mid rumours of despair. y'. Then did Thy love deliver, And from Thy gracious hand 'd Joy, like the Southern river, O'erflowed the weary land. Bless Thou our adoration! Our gladness sanctify Make this rejoicing nation To Thee by joy more nigh. •* '• 0 be this great Thanksgiving, t •• Throughout the land we raise, t Wrought into holier living ]. In all our niter days. Eless, Father, him Thou gavest, Back to the loyal land 0, Saviour, him Thou savest Still cover with Thine hand 0, Spirit, the Defender, Be his to guard and guide— Now in life's mid-day splendour, On to the eventide'! Amen. The Bishop of London then pronounced the benediction. The prayers were chanted by the Lord Mayor's chap- lain, the Rev. J. II. Coward, rector of St. Benedict, St. Paul's Wharf. At the conclusion of the service, the Royal procession was reformed with some modification, and returned to the western door. Her Majesty, the Princes and the Princes- ses, after a brief interval, entered the state carriage and amid the ringing cheers and enthusiastic acclamations of thousands of persons, the pealing of bells, and salvoes of artillery, which signalised the close of the service, at the Tower-wharf, and in St. James's Park. The emptying of the Cathedral was a slow process. It was estimated that there was 15,000 persons present, and consequently, there was a great deal of crushing; but, owing to the excellent arrangements, there was no acci- dent.
