2 All they around the throne
Cheerfully join in one,

Praising his name ;
We who have felt his blood
Sealing our peace with God,
Spread his dear fame abroad, -

“Worthy the Lamb!"

3 To him our hearts we raise ;
None else shall have our praise ;

Praise ye his name ;
Him, our exalted Lord,
By us below adored,
We praise with one accord,-

6 Worthy the Lamb !"

Praise to Jesus.

1 COME, all ye saints of God!
Publish through earth abroaci,

Jesus's fame;
Tell what his love has done ;
Trust in his name alone ;
Shout to his lofty throne,---

“ Worthy the Lamb !"
2 Hence, gloomy doubts and fears !
Dry up your mournful tears ;

Join our glad theme;
Beauty for ashes bring,
Strike each melodious string,
Join heart and voice to sing, --

“Worthy the Lamb !".
3 Hark! how the choirs above,
Filled with the Saviour's love,

Dwell on his name !
There, too, may we be found,
With light and glory crowned,
While all the heavens resound, -
“Worthy the Lamb!".

James Boden, 1801. 150.

Worthy the Lamb." 1 GLORY to God on high! Let praises fill the sky;

Praise ye his name;
Angels ! his name adore,
Who all our sorrows bore ;
And, saints ! cry evermore, --

6. Worthy the Lamb !"

4 Join, all the human race !
Our Lord and God to bless ;

Praise ye his name ;
In him we will rejoice;
Making a cheerful noise,
And say, with heart and voice,

“Worthy the Lamb !"

( 207.)

5 Though we must change our place,
Our souls shall never cease

Praising his name ;
To him we 'll tribute bring,
Laud him our gracious King,
And, without ceasing, sing,-
“Worthy the Lamb !"

James Allen, 1761.

1 COME, blessed Spirit! Source of light! And sing the wonders of thy grace;

Whose power and grace are unconfined, Thy power conveys our blessings down, Dispel the gloomy shades of night, From God, the Father, and the Son.

The thicker darkness of the mind. 2 Enlightened by thy heavenly ray,

2 To mine illumined eyes, display Our shades and darkness turn to day;

The glorious truths thy word reveals, Thine inward teachings make us know Cause me to run the beavenly way, Our danger, and our refuge too.

Thy book unfold, and loose the seals. 3 Thy power and glory work within, 3 Thine inward teachings make me know And break the chains of reigning sin;

The mysteries of redeeming love, Do our imperious lusts subdue,

The emptiness of things below, And form our wretched hearts anew.

And excellence of things above. 4 The troubled conscience knows tby voice, 4 While through this dubious maze I stray, Thy cheering words awake our joys;

Spread, like the sun, thy beams abroad, Thy words allay the stormy wind,

To show the dangers of the way,
And calm the surges of the mind.

And guide my feeble steps to God.

Prayer for spiritual Enjoyment.

(320.) 1 COME, sacred Spirit! from above,

1 COME, Holy Spirit ! calm my mind, And fill the coldest heart with love;

And fit me to approach my God; Soften to flesh the rugged stone,

Remove each vain, each worldly thought, And let thy godlike power be known.

And lead me to thy blest abode. 2 Speak thou, and, from the haughtiest eyes, 2 Hast thou imparted to my soul Shall floods of pious sorrow rise ;

A living spark of heavenly fire ? While all their glowing souls are borne Oh! kindle now the sacred flame;

To seek that grace, which now they scorn. Teach it to burn with pure desire. 3 Oh! let a holy flock await,

3 A brighter faith and hope impart, Numerous around thy temple-gate!

And let me now the Saviour see ; Each pressing on with zeal to be

Oh! soothe and cheer my burdened heart, A living sacrifice to thee.

Anå bid my spirit rest in thee.

155. Breathing after the Holy Spirit. (321.) 3 Come as the fire ; and purge our hearts, 1 COME, Holy Spirit, heavenly Dove !

Like sacrificial flame; With all thy quickeping powers, –

Let our whole soul an offering be Kindle a flame of sacred love,

To our Redeemer's name. In these cold hearts of ours.

| 4 Come as the dove; and spread thy wings, 2 Look-how we grovel here below,

The wings of peaceful love ; Fond of these triling toys!

And let thy church on earth become Our souls can neither fly nor go,

Blessed as the church above. To reach eternal joys.

5 Come as the wind; with rushing sound, 3 In vain we tune our formal songs,

And pentecostal grace, In vain we strive to rise ;

That all, of woman born, may see Hosannas languish on our tongues,

The glory of thy face. And our devotion dies.

Andrew Reed, 1841. 4 Dear Lord ! and shall we ever live, 157.

The Hope of Salvation. (323.) At this poor dying rate ? Our love so faint, so cold to thee, | 1 ETERNAL Spirit ! God of truth! And thine to us so great ?

Our contrite hearts inspire ;

Kindle the flame of heavenly love, 5 Come, Holy Spirit, heavenly Dove! :)

And feed the pure desire.
With all thy quickening powers ;
Come, shed abroad a Saviour's love,

2 'T is thine to soothe the sorrowing soul, And that shall kindle ours.

With guilt and fear oppressed ;
Isaac Watts, 1707.

'T is thine to bid the dying live,

And give the weary rest. The Descent of the Spirit. (324.) 3 Subdue the power of every sin, 1 SPIRIT Divine ! attend our prayers,

Whate'er that sin may be ;
And make this house thy home;

That we, in singleness of heart,
Descend with all thy gracious powers, May worship only thee.
Oh! come, great Spirit! come.

4 Then with our spirits witness bear, 2 Come as the light; to us reveal

That we 're the sons of God; Our emptiness and woe;

Redeemed from sin, and death, and hell, And lead us in those paths of lifc

Through Christ's atoning blood. Where all the righteous go.

Thomas Cotterill, 1810.

The Spirit of Adoption. (327) 3 The things of Christ the Spirit takes, 1 SPIRIT of holiness! look down,

And to our heart reveals ;
Our fainting hearts to cheer ;

Our bodies he his temple makes,
And, when we tremble at thy frown,

And our redemption seals.
Oh! bring thy comforts near.

4 Come, Holy Spirit! from above, 2 The fear, which thy convictions wrought,

With thy celestial fire;

Come, and with flames of zeal and love,
On! let thy grace remove;
And may the souls, which thou hast taught

Our hearts and tongues inspire.
To weep, now learn to love.

Thomas Cotterill, 1810, a. 3 Now let thy saving mercy heal

The wounds it made before ;

The new-creating Spirit.
The new

(329.) Now on our hearts impress thy seal, 1 SPIRIT of power and might! behold That we may doubt no more.

A world by sin destroyed ; 4 Complete the work thou hast begun,

Creator Spirit ! as of old, And make our darkness light, –

Move on the formless void. That we a glorious race may run,

2 Give thou the word ; that healing sound Till faith be lost in sight.

Shall quell the deadly strife, 5 Then, as the wondering eyes discern

And earth again, like Eden crowned,
The Lord's unclouded face,

Produce the tree of life.
In fitter language, we shall learn

3 If sang the morning stars for joy,
To sing triumphant grace.

When nature rose to view,
William Hiley Bathurst, 1830. What strains will angel-harps employ,

When thou shalt all renew? 159. The Outpouring of the Spirit. (331.) 4 And, if the sons of God rejoice 1 LET songs of praises fill the sky!

To hear a Saviour's name, Christ, our ascended Lord,

How will the ransomed raise their voice, Sends down his Spirit from on high,

To whom the Saviour came? According to his word.

| 5 So every kindred, tongue, and tribe, 2 The Spirit, by his heavenly breath,

Assembling round the throne, New life creates within ;

The new creation shall aseribe He quickens sinners from the death .

To sovereign love alone. Of trespasses and sin..

James Montgomery, 1825.

161. The sanctifying Spirit. (334.) 3 Like mighty rushing wind 1 COME, Holy Spirit ! come;

Upon the waves beneath, Let thy bright beams arise ;

Move with one impulse every mind, Dispel the darkness from our minds,

One soul, one feeling breathe. And open all our eyes.

4 The young, the old inspire 2 Revive our drooping faith,

With wisdom from above ;

And give us hearts and tongues of fire, Our doubts and fears remove, And kindle in our breasts the flame

To pray, and praise, and love. Of never-dying love.

5 Spirit of light! explore, 3 Convince us of our sin;

And chase our gloom away, Then lead to Jesus' blood,

With lustre, shining more and more And to our wondering view reveal

Unto the perfect day. The secret love of God.

James Montgomery, 1819. 4 'Tis thine to cleanse the heart,

163. To sanctify the soul,

The Comforter.

(337.) To pour fresh life on every part,

1 BLEST Comforter Divine! And new-create the wholt.

Whose rays of heavenly love 5 Dwell, therefore, in our hearts ;

Amid our gloom and darkness shine, Our minds from bondage free;

And point our souls above ;-
Then shall we know, and praise, and love, 2 Thou ! who with “still small voice,”
The Father, Son, and Thee.

Dost stop the sinner's way,
Joseph Hart, 1759, 1 And bid the mourning saint rejoice,

Though earthly joys decay ;-
162. The Descent of the Spirit. (335.) 3 Thou! whose inspiring breath
1 LORD God, the Holy Ghost !

Can make the cloud of care, In this accepted hour,

And e'en the gloomy vale of death, As on the day of Pentecost,

A smile of glory wear ;Descend in all thy power.

4 Thou ! who dost fill the heart 2 We meet with one accord

With love to all our race ;In our appointed place,

Blest Comforter! to us impart And wait the promise of our Lord,

The blessings of thy grace. The Spirit of all grace.

Nrs. Lydia H. Sigourney, 1825.
