The work is of grace ;
Tbine, thine be the praise, And mine to adore thee, and tell of thy ways. 256
i wieranno Foundling THE God who once to Israel spoke, From Sinai's top, in fire and smoke, In gentler strains of gospel grace,
1 Invites us now to seek his face. He wears no terrors on his brow, He speaks in love from Zion now, It is the voice of Jesu's blood, Calling poor wand'rers back to God.. The holy Moses quak'd and fear'd, When Sinai's thund'ring law he heard, But reigning grace, with accents mild, Speaks to the sinner as a child, Hark! how from Calvary it sounds, From the Redeemer's dying wounds; “ Pardon and grace I freely give, Poor sinners look to me, and live." Spirit divine, thy pow'r be felt, Now cause the stony heart to melt; By Jesu's love each soul constrain, Nor let the word be preach'd in vain.

And teach his tongue to speak :
Food to the hungry soul impart,
And cordial to the weak.
And make thy glory known;
And soften hearts of stone.
That saints may love thee more;
Who never lov'd before.
To walk in wisdom's ways;
And thou shalt have the praise. 258 wwwwand

Hardcastle. IN thy name, O Lord, assembling,
We, thy people, now draw near.“
Teach us to rejoice with trembling;
Hear with meekness;
May we give them, Lord, to thee; Cheer'd by hope, and daily strengthened, May we run, nor weary be;
"Till thy glory,
All thy people shall adore ;
Glorify the King of kings, Take the peace the gospel brings. 261 woonparano
Talcon Street. HOW beauteous are their feet,
Who stand on Zion's hill!
And words of peace reveal.
How sweet the tidings are l.) “ Zion, behold thy Saviour King,
“ He reigns and triumphs here.” How happy are our ears,
That hear this joyful sound,
And sought, but never found,
That see this heavenly light; Prophets and kings desir'd it long,
But died without the sight! The watchmen join their voice,
And tuneful notes employ ; Jerusalem breaks forth in songs,
And deserts learn the joy. The Lord makes bare his arm,
Through all the earth abroad; Let every nation now behold
Their Saviour and their God.
