Of all the Names in Heaven above,
There's none so sweet as thine, my Love.

In Thee, immortal beauties shine,
In Thee, th' united Brethren join,
In Thee, all ransom'd Souls delight,
le Thee, thy Peoples Hearts unite.

Thou art our God ! and thou alone,
May we in Spirit all be one!
One with each other let us be,
And one with Christ eternally.

The World may all in pieces break,
And Heaven and Earth endure a Wreck; t
The Church of Christ for ever stands,
lmmoveable in Jefu's Hands.

RAnsom'd Captives, gladly raise
Ceaseless Hymns of Joy and Praise,
- Wafted on the Wings of Love,
Join the heav'nly Choirs above.

Praise the Lamb, who lately bled,
View him cloath'd in Robes of red:
See how fresh his Wounds appear,.
Now he brings Forgiveness near.

We, in Sin so lately Dead,
Now arise in Christ our Headr
We in heavenly Places sit,
^ AU our Crowns lie at his Feet,

Now

Now we Live, we Live anew,
Fill'd with Peace and Comfort too;
Ever crying in our Prayer,
Lord, how Aow thy Chariots are \

LOVELY, loving Lamb of God,
Thou hast bought us with thy Blood,
By thy Grace in Thee we live,
Close unto each other cleave.

Here we join each Heart and Hand,,
Resolved by thy cause to stand;
In thy Strength let us go on,
Trampling Sin and Satan down.

Strengthen'd by his Love we stand,
None can pluck us from his Hand $..
In his Arms we sleep secure,
To the End we shall endure.

Let us never ! never ! part,
But continue one in Heart,
Bear Reproath, despising shame,. •
Foll'wers of the bleeding Lamb.

May we all united be,
In the Bonds of Unity,
Loving, teachable and mild,.
Humble as a little Child.

Grant us, Lord, one mind, one way!
Keep us, lest we run astray,
Sweetly let us Live and Die,
All together reign on High; .

HYMN XIV.

pOME my Brethen, let us join,
^ In a sacred Song divine,
Jesus shall the subject be.
Who hath liv'd and dy'd for me.

Now prepare your Hearts to sing,
Glory to our God and King,
Now a Shout of Triumph raise,
Fill the Heavens with Jesu's Praise.

Hallelujah to the Lamb,
All aloud his Love proclaim,
He for Sinners freely dy'd
He for us was crucify'c.

When we sing his Love compleat,
All our Sorrows we forget,
On this Theme we gladly dwell,
Boundless Love! that saves from Hell.

Clouds of Unbelief and Fear,
Flee before the Morning Star;
Lord, diffuse a brighter Ray,
Shine unto the perfect Day.

Join with us, ye heavenly Choirs,
Whom the Saviour's Love inspires,
May we never cease our Song,
While we have an Heart or Tongue.

Our Hearts shall ascend;

With Saints and with Angels,

That live round the Throne,

And tell of his Goodness,
To the sons of Men.
