Give unto the

1 Chron. xvi. 28. 1 LORY to God op high;

[ocr errors]

The Son of God came down to die,

That we might be forgiven. 2 His precious blood was shed,

His body bruis'd for sin; Remember this in eating bread,

And this in drinking wine. 3 Approach his royal board,

In his rich garments clad;
Join every tongue to praise the Lord;

And every heart be glad. 4 The Father gives the Son :

The Son his flesh and blood;
The Spirit applies, and faith puts on

The righteousness of God.

Hymn 179. L. M.
This is the day which the Lord hath made : sce
Hill rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm cxviii. 24.
VHE day of Christ, the day of God,

We humbly hope with joy to see,

Wash'd in the sanctifying blood

Of an expiring Deity.
2 He did for us his life resign!

There is no other God but one;
For all the plenitude divine

Resides in his eterual Son.
3 Spotless, sincere, without offence,

O may we to his day remain!
Who trust the blood of Christ, to cleanse

Our souls from every sinful stain. 4 Lord, we believe the promise sure;

The purchas'd Comforter inpart!
Apply, thy blood to make us pure,

To keep us pure in life and heart! 5 Then let us see that day supreme,

When none thy Godhead shall deny,
Thy sovereign majesty blaspheme,

Or count thee less than the Most Highs · 6 When all who in their God believe,

Wbo hear thy last appearing love, Sball thy consummate joy receive, And see thy glorious face above.

2 The King himself comes near,

And feasts bis saints to-day :
Here we may sit, and see him here,

And love, and praise, and pray. 3 One day in such a place,

Where thou, my God, art seen, Is sweeter than ten thousand days,

That's spent in guilt and sin. 4 My willing soul would stay

In such a frame as this, And sit and sing herself away To everlasting bliss.

begone, Let my religious hours alone; Fain would my eyes my Saviour see;

I wait a visit, Lord, from thee,
2 My heart grows waria with holy fire,

And kindles with a pure desire:
Come, O my Jesus, from above,

And feed my soul with beavenly love. 3 Haste then, but with a smiling face,

And spread the table of thy grace :
Bring down a taste of truth divine,

And cheer my heart with sacred wine. 4 Blest Jesus, what delicious fare !

How sweet thy 'entertainments are !
Never did angels taste above
Redeeming grace and dying love

O! is here! us
Let all within us feel his power,

Apd silent bow before his face!
Who know his power, his grace who provę,

Serve him with awe, with rev'rence love. 2 Lo! God is here! him day and night

Tbe united choirs of angels sing : To him, entbron'd above all height,

Heaven's hosts thcir noblest praises bring ; Disdain not, Lord, our meaner song,

Who praise thee with a stamm'ring tongué. 3 Gladly the toys of earth we leave,

Wealth, pleasure, fame, for thee alone; To thee our will, soul, flesh, we give :

O take! O seal them for thine own!
Thou art the God, thou art the Lord;

Be thou by all thy works ador'd! 4 Being of beings! may our praise

Thy courts with grateful fragrance fill; Still may we stand before thy face,

Still hear avd do thy sov'reigo will; To thee may all our thoughts arise,

A ceaseless, pleasing sacrifice. 5 As flowers their op'ning leuves display,

And glad drink in the solar fire ; So may we catch thy every ray,

So may thy influence us inspire; Thou beam of the eternal beam! Thou purging fire, thou quick’ning fáme.

No mortal care sball seize my breast,
O may my beart in tune be found,

Like David's harp of solemn sound! 3 When grace has purified my beart,

Then shall I share a glorious part;
And fresh supplies of joy are shed,

Like holy oil to cheer my bead.
4 Then shall I see, and hear, and know,

All I desir'd or wish'd below:
And every power find sweet employ,
I'n hat eternal world of joy.
