With a triumphant noise,
Proclaim the angelic joys:
Is by the Father given;
He reigns supreme in heaven: ita
3 Thus saved, may we with joy appear
In beaven before his face;
Sing bis redeeming grace.
1st P. M. 6 lines 88.
Thou, thou the King of glory art,
The legal off'rings all foreshow'd,
And drew their virtue from thy blood :
. The blood of goats and bullocks slain,
Could never for one sin atone; To purge the guilty off'rer's stain,
Thine was the work, and thine alone, 3 These feeble types and shadows old,
Are all in thee, the Truth, fulfill'd: We in thy sacrifice behold
The substance of those rites reveal'd. 4 Thy meritorious sufferings past,
We see by faith to us brought back; And, on thy grand oblation cast,
Its saving benefits partake. 163
joy we meditate the grace His heart is made of tenderness,
His bowels melt with love.
He knows our feeble frame;
For be hath felt the same.
Pour'd out strong cries and tears, And in his measure feels afresh
What every member bears.
But raise it to a flame;
Nor scorns the meanest name.
His mercy and his power; We shall obtain deliv ring grace
In every trying hour.
W OF Vers High Priest above;
