4 Those characters shall fair abide,
Our everlasting trust,
Are moulder'd down to dust.
May thy dear name be worn,
To endless ages borne !
65c. M. High Priest, or true Aaron.
S EE Aaron, God's anointed priest,
Within the vail appear;
Presenting Israel's pray'r.
Before the mercy-seat;
Arise with odour sweet.3 Through him the eye of faith discerns,
A greater priest than he,
For you, my fricnds, and me.
4. The blood, which as a priest he bears
For sinner's, is his own;
Perfum's the holy throne.
5 In him my weary soul has rest,
Though I am weak and vile;
And see the Father smile.
LOD with us! O glorious name!
Let it shine in endless fame;
2 God with us ! amazing love,
Brought him from his courts above;
3 God with us ! O, wondrous grace !
Let us see him face to face ;
6. 8. Immanuel Exalted.
WHEN Jesus first at heaven’s com
mand, Descended from his azure throne, Attending Angels join'd his praise, : Who claim'd the kingdoms for his own.
HailImmanuel! Immanuel we'll adore,
And sound his name from shore to shore. 2 Girt with omnipotence and grace, The pow'rs of darkness trembling stood To bear the dire decree, and feel The vengeance of a mighty God.,
Hail, &c. 3 Not with'the sword that warriors wear, But with a sceptre dipt in blood, He bends the nations to obey : Aud rules them by the love of God.
Till all the powr's of hell resiga
'Tis music to my ear;
That earth and beav'n night hear.
2 Yes; thou art precious to my soul,
My transport, and my trust, Jewels to thee are gaudy toys,
And gold is sordid dust.
3 All my capacious pow’rs can wish,
In thee most richly meet; Nor to my eyes is life so dear,
Nor friendship half so sweet.
4 O may thy grace still cheer my heart,
And shed its fragrance there; The noblest balm of all its wounds,
The cordial of its care.
5 I'll speak the honours of thy name,
With my last fainting breath ; When speechless, clasp thee in my arms,
My joy in life and death.
6 Till then I would thy love proclaim,
With ev'ry fleeting breath ;
Refresh my soul in death.
1 HOW sweet the name of Jesus sounds
Iv a believer's ear,
And drives away his fear.
2 It makes the wounded spirit whole,
And calms the troubled breast; 'Tis manna to the hungry soul,
And to the weary, rest.
3 Dear name! the rock on which I build,
My shield and hiding place;
With boundless stores of grace.
4 Jesus! my shepherd, husband, friend,
My prophet, priest, and king,
Accept the praise I bring,
