Who is the King of Glory? who?
HOfannato the Prince of Light,
Death is no more the King of Dread,
He took the Tyrants Sting away,
See how the Conqueror mounts aloft,
And to his Father flies,
And Triumphs in his Eyes.
There our exalted Saviour Reigns,
Our Jesus fills the middle Seat,
Raise your Devotion, Mortal Tongues
Sweet be the Accents of our Songs,
Bright Bright Angels strike their loudest Strings,
Your sweetest Voices raise,
Sound our Emmanuels Praise.
AWAKE my Soul and Sing,
See him once crown'd with Thorns,
And on the Cross expire!
While heav'nly Hosts admire.
Enthron'd at God's right Hand,
An Advocate with God now stands,
He ever Lives, and bears
Their Names upon his Breast,
And heav'nly Mansions he prepares
TJ AIL holy, holy, holy Lord! ** Be endless Praise to thee -,
Supreme, essential one ador'd,
Enthron'd in everlasting State,
All that the Name of Creatures own,
May we as Angels on our Thrones,
Hail holy, holy, holy Lord!
Be endless Praise to thee; Supreme, essential one ador'd,
In co,eternal three!
PRAISE be to the Father given,
Pay we equal adoration,
To the Son,
Glory to the Eternal Spirit,
Us he Seals,
Christ reveals, And applies his Merit. Worship, Worship, Honour, Thanks and Blessing,
One in Three,
Give we thee, Never, never ceasing.
BEfore the Earth or Worlds were made,
All Nature may be out of course,
Or into Nothing fall:
His Love is all in all.
How miserable should we be?
What Comfort could we sind, If God did change as oft as we,
Who waver like the Wind.
If once the Blood of Christ we feel,
Upon our Hearts imprest; The mark of that ccelestial Seal,
Can never be eras'd.
The Lord will scourge us if we stray,
His Mercies never cease,
His covenant of Peace.
The Peace which Jesu's Blood procures,
And fixes in the Heart; To all Eternity endures,
And never mall depart.
At the Death of a Believer.
HOfanna to Jesus on high!
And lodg'd in Emmanuel's Breast:
To heighten the Triumph above, Exalted to Jesus's Throne,
And clasp'd in the Arms of his Love.
How happy the Angels that fall
Transported at Jesus's Name!
To share in the Feast of the Lamb!
Who next from his Dungeon shall fly? Who first shall be summon'd away i
My merciful God Is it I?
O Jesus! if this be thy Will,
That suddenly I should depart, Thy Council of Mercy reveal,
And whisper the Call to my Heart: O give me a Signal to know
If soon thou would'st have me to move, And leave the dull Body below,
And fly to the Regions of Love.
