Hymn 222. S. M.

The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord and of his Christ. Rev. xi. 15.



ESUS, the Conqu'ror reigns,
In glorious strength array'd:
His kingdom over all maintains
And bids the earth be glad.

2 Ye sons of men, rejoice

In Jesu's mighty love:

Lift up your beart, lift up your voice,
To him who rules above.

3 Extol his kingly pow'r;

Kiss the exalted Son,

Who died, and lives to die no more,
High on his Father's throne.

4 Our Advocate with God,

He undertakes our cause,

And spreads through all the earth abroad,
The vict'ry of his cross.

Hymn 223. L. M.

Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. Psa. ii. 8.

ON of thy Sire's eternal love,

Take to thyself thy mighty power:
Let all earth's sons thy mercy prove,
Let all thy bleeding face adore!

2 The triumphs of thy love display:
In every heart reign thou alone,

Till all thy foes confess thy sway,

And glory ends what grace began.
3 Spirit of grace, and health, and power,
Fountain of light and love below,
Abroad thy healing influence shower,
O'er all the nations let it flow.

4 Inflame our hearts with perfect love,
In us the work of faith fulfil:

So not heaven's host shall swifter move,
Than we on earth to do thy will.

Hymn 224. L. M.

For from the rising of the sun eren unto the going down of the same, my name shall be great among the Gentiles. Mal. i. 11.

1 JEDues his successive journeys run;

ESUS shall reign where'er the sun

His kingdom spread from shore to shore,
Till moon shall wax and wane no more.
2 From north to south the princes meet,
To pay their homage at his feet;
While western einpires own their Lord,
And savage tribes attend his word.
3 To him shall endless pray'r be made,
And endless praises crown his head:
His name like sweet perfume shall rise,
With ev'ry morning sacrifice.

4 People and realms of every tongue,
Dwell on his love with sweetest song,
And infant voices shall proclaim
Their early blessings on his name.

Hymn 225. L. M.


I will abundantly bless her provision; I will satisfy her poor with bread. Psa. cxxxii. 15.

[ocr errors][merged small]

The weary find eternal rest,

And all the sons of want are blest.

2 Where he displays his healing power,
Death and the curse are known no more;
In him the tribes of Adam boast
More blessings than their father lost.

3 Let every creature rise and bring
Peculiar honours to our King:
Angels descend with songs again,
And earth repeat the loud amen.

Hymn 226. L. M.

Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the Lord: awake as in ancient days. Isa. li. 9.


ARM of the Lord, awake, awake!

Thine own immortal strength put on! With terror cloth'd, the nations shake, And cast thy foes with fury down.

2 As in the ancient days appear!

The sacred annals speak thy fame; Be now omnipotently near,

To endless ages still the same.

3 By death and hell pursued in vain,

To thee the ramsom'd seed shall come;

Shouting, their heavenly Zion gain, And pass through death triumphant home. 4 The pain of life shall then be o'er,

The anguish and distracting care; Sighing and grief are known no more, And sin shall never enter there.

5 Where pure essential joy is found,

The Lord's redeem'd their heads shall raise, With everlasting gladness crown'd, And fill'd with love, and lost in praise.

Hymn 227. P. M.

Look unto me and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth. Isaiah xlv. 22.

1RISE, ye dearly purchas'd sinners,

Fill'd with faith's assurance rise;

Through the loss of Jesus winners,
Lord of all in earth and skies;

Sing and triumph

In his bleeding sacrifice.

2 To his meritorious passion

All our happiness we owe;
Pardon, holiness, salvation,
Heaven above and heaven below;
Grace and glory,

From that open fountain flow.
3 Blest in our returning Saviour,
When he hath prepar'd our place,
We shall reign with him for ever,
Folded in his love's embrace :
Come, Redeemer,

Show us all thy heavenly face.

4 Now reveal thy full salvation,

[ocr errors]

Let thy brightest lightnings shine!
In the thuud'ring acclamation,
While both saints and angels join;
Sound the trumpet,

Flames unfurl'd, the crimson sign.
5 With thine army of cross-bearers,
Lo! we wait, we long to rise,
In thy royal triumph sharers,
In thy joy beyond the skies:
Come the kingdom,

Saviour, bring th' immortal prize.
6 Answer thy own bride and spirit;
Hasten, Lord, the general doom,
The new heaven and earth t' inherit,
Take thy pining exiles home!
All creation


Travails, groans, and bids thee come!

Hymn 228.

P. M.

Shall a nation be born at once? Isa. lxvi. S.

AMB of God, who bear'st away
All the sins of all mankind;

Bow a nation to thy sway:

While we may acceptance find,
Let us thankfully embrace
The last offers of thy grace.
2 Thou thy messengers hast sent,
Joyful tidings to proclaim;
Willing we should all repent,
Know salvation in thy name;
Feel our sins through grace forgiven,
Find in thee the way to heaven.
