JESUS, take all the glory:
25th P. M. 77, 87, 77, 87.
Joining the angelic hosts in praises.
The pardon bought, thy mercy brought
Our only Lord and Saviour,
Through all my fleeting days; And to eternity prolong
Thy vast, thy boundless praise.
2 Nor shall my tongue alone proclaim
3 Nor will I cease thy praise to sing,
4 Then shall my lips, in endless praise,
The theme demands an angel's tongue,
Joining the angelic hosts in praise
To thee be ever given,
25th P. M. 77,8,171-922
16th P. M. 11 12, 11 12. The foretaste of endless bliss.
MY God, I am thine; what a comfort divine,
a know that my is mine!
In the heavenly Lamb, thrice happy I am;
Perpetual praise. TES, I will bless thee, O my God, Through all my fleeting days; And to eternity prolong Thy vast, thy boundless praise 2 Nor shall my tongue alone proclaim The honours of my God; My life, with all its active powers, Shall spread thy praise abroad. 3 Nor will I cease thy praise to sing, When death shall close mine eyes; My thoughts shall then to nobler heights And sweeter raptures rise. 4 Then shall my lips, in endless praise, Their grateful tribute pay The theme demands an angel's tongue, And an eternal day.
2 True pleasures abound in the rapturous sound, And whoever hath found it, hath paradise found; My Redeemer to know, to feel his blood flow, This is life everlasting-'tis heaven below.
3 Yet onward I haste to the heavenly feast;
That indeed is the fulness, but this is the taste And this I shall prove, till with joy I remove To the heaven of heavens in Jesus's love.
2d P. M. 6 lines 8s. Everlasting praises.
I'LL praise my Maker while I've breath,
2 Happy the man whose hopes rely On Israel's God; he made the sky,
And earth, and seas, with all their train; His truth forever stands secure; He saves the' oppress'd, he feeds the poor, And none shall find his promise vain. 3 The Lord pours eyesight on the blind; The Lord supports the fainting mind;
He sends the lab'ring conscience peace; He helps the stranger in distress, The widow and the fatherless,
And grants the pris'ner sweet release.
4 I'll praise him while he lends me breath, And when my voice is lost in death,
Praise shall employ my nobler powers; My days of praise shall ne'er be past, While life, and thought, and being last, Or immortality endures.
God's praises crown eternity.
GOD of my life, through all my days
My grateful powers shall sound thy praise My song shall wake with opening light, And cheer the dark and silent night.
2 When anxious cares would break my rest,
3 When death o'er nature shall prevail,
4 But O, when that last conflict's o'er,
5 Soon shall I learn the' exalted strains
6 The cheerful tribute will I give,
PROSPECT OF HEAVEN.
COME on, my partners in distress,
My comrades through the wilderness, Who still your bodies feel: Awhile forget your griefs and fears, And look beyond this vale of tears, To that celestial hill.
4th P. M. 886, 886.
2 Beyond the bounds of time and space, Look forward to that heavenly place, The saints' secure abode;
On faith's strong eagle pinions rise,
And scale the mount of God.
3 Who suffer with our Master here,
The cross, shall wear the crown.
4 Thrice blessed, bliss-inspiring hope!
5 That great mysterious Deity, We soon with open face shall see; The beatific sight
Shall fill the heavenly courts with praise,
The full assurance of hope.
This earth, he cries, is not my place;
20 what a blessed hope is ours!
We feel the resurrection near,-
3 0 would he more of heaven bestow!
To grasp the God we seek;
Its joys as soon are past:
Continued.-Endless bliss in prospect.
