GRATITUDE. - 91

HYMN 263. HYMN 265. To thee we raise our grateful songs, Eternal God, in whom we live, And praise thy glorious name ; In whom we are and move, . Thy love, O Lord, inspires our tongues, The glory, power, and praise receive Thy mercy to proclaim. Of thy creating love. Great Source of light, indulgent God, Let all the bright angelic throng How rich thy mercies are l Give thanks to God on high, Teach us to spread thy name abroad, While earth repeats the joyful song, And all thy truth declare. - Which echoes through the sky. O glorious Sun of Righteousness, Let each of all thy creatures be, Diffuse thy beams divine; Of all thy ransomed race, May we behold thy lovely face, Devoted heart and mind to thee, And in thy image shine. For thy redeeming grace. May thy pure light on Zion shine, The grace on sinful men bestowed, The clouds of sin dispel; ... . Ye heavenly choirs proclaim, That peace; and life, and joy divine, And cry, salvation to our Godi In every heart may dwell. Salvation to the Lamb | May we be drawn to thee, O Lord, Thou author of redeeming grace, By blessings from above, May all thy saints adore 3United by the three-fold cord Thy saving truth, and ever bless “Of faith and hope and love. Thy heart-renewing power. :So shall we feel the kindling glow Not angel-spirits can conceive, Of thy celestial fire; Thy love's ecstatic height; And while we journey here below, And we alone by faith receive, To thy abode aspire. Its renovating light. iMay that bright day roll swiftly on Eternal and unchanging Lord, When thou shalt reign below ; Let all the hosts above, And all beneath the circling sun, Let all the sons of men record Thy full salvation know. Thy universal love. Tor this, O Lord, may every heart When time and earth are fled away, In constant prayer ascend, Before thy glorious face, Till all shall see thee as thou art, Mankind shall sing, in endless day, And praise thee without end. The glories of thy grace. HYMN 264. HYMN 266. What glorious tidings do I hear Hark! 'tis the prophet of the skies From my Redeemer's tongue ! Proclaims redemption near ! I can no longer silence bear, The night of death and bondage flies, I'll burst into a song. . - The dawning tints appear. The blind receive their sight with joy; O Zion, from thy shades of gloom, The lame are now restored; Awake to glorious day ! The dumb their loosen'd tongues employ; Thy desert wastes with verdure bloom, The deaf can hear the word. Thy shadows flee away! The dead are raised to life anew, The gladdening news, conveyed afar, By renovating grace; Remotest nations hear; The glorious gospel's preached to you, To welcome in the Morning Star, The poor of Adam's race. The ransomed tribes appear. O wondrous type of things divine, The wilderness shall hear his voice, When Christ displays his love, For full salvation flows,

To raise from woe the sinking mind, And Sharon's desert shall rejoice
To reign with him above And blossom as the rose.
