, adored :

Universal adoration.
HOLY, holy, holy Lord!
The earth and heavens are full of thee,
Thy light, thy power, thy majesty.
? Loud hallelujahs to thy Name,
Angels and seraphim proclaim:
By all the powers and thrones in heaven,
Eternal praise to thee is given.
3 Apostles join the glorious throng,
And swell the loud triumphant song:
Prophets and martyrs hear the sound,
And spread the hallelujah round.
4 Glory to thee, O God most high!
Father, we praise thy majesty:
The Son, the Spirit, we adore;
One Godhead, blest forever more.

The sacrifice of praise.
VITH joy we lift our eyes

To those bright realms above,
That glorious temple in the skies,

Where dwells eternal Love.
2 Before thy throne we bow,

Othou almighty King;
Here we present the solemn vow,

And hymns of praise we sing.
3 While in thy house we kneel,

With trust and holy fear,
Thy mercyland thy truth reveal,

And lend a gracious ear.
4 Lord, teach our hearts to pray,

And tune our lips to sing;
Nor from thy presence cast away

The sacrifice we bring.

The Desire of all nations.
COME thon, Desire of all thy saints,
While, with our praises and complaints,

Low at thy feet we bend,
2 How should our songs, like those above,

With warm devotion rise ;
How should our souls, on wings of love,

Mount upward to the skies.
3 Come, Lord, thy love alone can raise

In us the heavenly flame;
Then shall our lips resound thy praise,

Our hearts adore thy Name.
4 Now, Saviour, let thy glory shine,

And fill thy dwellings here,
Till life, and love, and joy divine,

A heaven on earth appear.
5 Then shall our hearts enraptured say,

Come, great Redeemer, come,
And bring the bright, the glorious day,

That calls thy children home. 49

INFINITE excellence is thine,

Thou glorious Prince of grace!
Thy uncreated beauties shine

With never-facing rays.

Come bending at thy feet;
To thee their pryers and songs ascend,

In thee their wishes meet.
3 Millions of happy spirits live

On thy exhaustlegs store;
From ther they all their bliss receive,

And still thou givest more.

They find their all in thee;
Thy glories will their tongues employ

JESUS, thou all-redeeming Lord,
J Thy blessing we implore;
Open the door to preach thy word,

The great, effectual door.

From sin and Satan's power;
And let them now acceptance have,

And know their gracious hour.
3 Lover of souls! thou know'st t« prize

What thou hast bought so dear :
Come, then, and in thy people's eyes

With all thy wounds appear.
4 Appear, as when of old confess'd,

The suff'ring Son of God;
And let us see thee in thy vest,

But newly dippid in blood.

5 The hardness of our hearts remove,

Thou who for all hast died : Show us the tokens of thy love,

Thy feet, thy hands, thy side.
6 Ready thou art the blood to apply,

And prove the record true :
And all thy wounds to sinners cry,

I suffer'd this for you.

1st P. M. 6 lines 8s. Speak our sins forgiven. FATHER. I everlasting grace,

Be mindful of thy changeless word;
We worship tow'rd that holy place,

In which thou dost thy name record;
Dost make thy gracious nature known;
That living temple of thy Son.
2 Thou dost with gweet complacence see

The temple fill'd with light divine;
And art thou not well pleased with me,

Who, turning to that heavenly shrine,
Through Jesus to thy throne apply,
Through Jesus for acceptance cry!
3 With all who for redemption groan,

Father, in Jesus' name we pray;
And still we cry and wrestle on,

Till mercy take our sins away :
Hear from thy dwelling-place in heaven,
And now pronounce our sins forgiven.

And seek thee in thy Son.

2 Well pleased in him thyself declare;
Thy pard'ning love reveal;
The peaceful answer of our prayer,

On every conscience seul.
3 Meanest of all thy servants, I
Those happier spirits meet,
And mix with theirs my feeble.cry,

And worship at thy feet.
4 On me, on all, some gift bestow,

Some blessing now impart; The seed of life eternal sow, .

In every waiting heart. 6 Thy loving, powerful Spirit shed,

Speak thou our sins forgiven, And hasten through the lump to spread

The sanctifying leaven.
6 Refresh us with a ceaseless shower

Of graces from above,
Till all receive the perfect power

Of everlasting love. 54

C. M. God, the only object of worship. O song

With grateful hearts we raise; To thee, and thee alone, belong

All worship, love, and praise. 2 In trouble's dark and stormy hour,

Thine ear hath heard our prayer; And graciously thine arm of power

Hath saved us from despair.
3 And thou, 0 ever gracious Lord,

Wilt keep thy promise still,
If, meekly heark’ning to thy word,
We seek to do thy will.
