Sing on your heav'nly way
Ye ransom'd sinners sing, Sing on, rejoicing ev'ry day In Christ th' eternal King.
Soon shall we hear him say,
“ Ye blessed children come;" Soon will be call you hence away, And take his wand'rers home.
8. 7. 4. Praise to the Redeemer.
MIGHTY God! while angels bless
| For the grandeur of thy nature,
Grand beyond a seraph's thought, For created works of power, Works with skill and kindness wrought.
3 For thy Providence, that governs
Through thine empire's wide domain Wings an angel, guides a sparrow: Blessed be thy gentle reign.-
4 But thy rich, thy free redemption,
Dark through brightness all along; Thought is poor, and poor expression: Who dare sing that awful song!
Hal. &c. 5 Brightness of the Father's glory,
Shall thy praise unutter'd lie?
Hal. &c. 6 From the highest throne in glory,
To the cross of deepest woe;
Leave thy footstool, take thy throne
GLORY to God on high,
Let heày'n and earth reply,
his name! His love and grace adore, Who all our sorrows bore, Sing aloud evermore,
Worthy the Lamb.”
Join all ye ransom'd race
Praise ye his name !
“Wortby the Lamb!”
Though we must change our place,
Praising his name!
“Worthy the Lamb !"
99 L. M. Praise for his loving kindness.
A WAKE, my soul, in joyful lays,
And sing thy great redeemer's praise;
He saw me ruin'd in the fall,
3 When trouble, like a gloomy cloud,
Has gather'd thick, and thunder'd loud,
4 Often I feel my sinful heart
Prone from my Jesus to depart;
Soon shall I pass the gloomy vale,
L.M. Praise for Salvation. KELLY WE sing th' praise of him who
died; Of him who died upon the cross; The sinner's hope let men deride, For this we count the world but loss.
Inscrib'd upon the cross we see
The CROSS! it takes our guilt away,
It makes the coward spirit brave,
The balm of life, the cure of woe,
