OF O R a thousand Tongues to Sing,
Our dear Redeemer's Praise,
The Glories of our God and King,
The Triumph of his Grace.
Our'gracious Master and our God,
Assist us to proclaim,
To spread thro' all the Earth abroad,
The Honours of thy Name.
Jesus, the Name that charms our Fears,
That bids our Sorrows cease, 'Tis Music in the Sinners Ears,
'Tis Life and Health and Peace.
He breaks the Pow'r of cancell'd Sin,. . . .
He sets the Prisoner free,
His Blood can make the foulest clean,
May it atone for me.... ,. ......
He speaks, and list'ning to his Voice,
New Life the Dead receive, .
The Mournful broken Hearts rejoice;
Desiring Souls believe.
Look unto him ye Nations ; own
Your God, ye fallen race, .
Look and be lav'd through Faith alone,
Be justisied by Grace.
Romans iv. 8.
TT O W Blest are they whose Sins are hid
JsJL From Condemnation they are freed,
They walk in constant Love and Joy,
And Hymns of Praise their Lips Employ:
May we those happy Persons be,
And have eternal Life in thee,
Obtain Salvation thro' thy Name,
And glory only in the Lamb.
Not only, Lord, our Guilt remove,
But fill our Hearts with holy Love,
The fullness of thy Power display,
And take our bosom Sins away:
Our Hearts, alas! are still unclean,
Lord, may we daily die to Sin,
Let fresh supplies of Grace be giv*n,
'Till we are pure and ripe for Heav'n.
THEE, let us taste in all our Food,
And relish thy free Grace,
Always confess that thou art good,
And always sing thy Praise:
Jesu, thou art the living Bread,
That Bread which came from Heav'n,
For us thy precious Blood was shed,
For us thy Life was giv'n.
Man doth not live by Bread alone,
But by thy Promise, Lord;
Now send an heav'nly Morsel down.
And seed us with thy Word:
Daily afford us fresh supplies
Of Manna, from above, 'Till we to Life Eternal rise,»
And taste thy perfect Love.
Hebrews x. 22.
NO W prepare your Hearts to Sing,
Glory to our God and King;
Now a shout of Triumph raise,
Fill the Heav'ns with Jesu's Praise.
Hallelujah to the Lamb,
All aloud his Love proclaim,
He for Sinners freely Dy'd!
Was for Sinners Crucify'd!
Now may Doubts and Fears be o'er,
We distrust his Grace no more;
Full assurance may we prove,
Settled in the Saviour's Love.
**Tn our Jesu's Arms secure,
To the end may we endure ,
Join with us, ye Angels, join,
Praise his Name in Hymns Divine.
Earth below, and Heav'ns above,
Wonder at his boundless Love;
All admire his Grace and Pow'r,
Bless the Lord for evermore.
Christ appearing to his Church,
Solomon's Song, Chap. ii.
TH E Voice of my beloved Sounds
Over the Rocks and rising Grounds,
O'er Hills of Guilt, and Seas of Grief
He leaps, he flies to our Relief,
Gently he draws my Heart along,
Both with his Beauties and his Tongue,
Rise, saith my Lord, make Ha/le away,
No mortal Joys are worth thyjlay.
The Jewish Wint'ry State is gone,
The Mitts are fled, the Spring comes on;
The sacred Turtle,Dove we hear
Proclaim the new, the jiyful Tear.
O when we hear our Jesus fay
Rife up my Love, make Haste away,
Our Hearts would fain out,fly the fPlnd,
And leave all earthly Love behind.
Salvation by Grace.
LORD, we confess our num'rous Faults,
How great our Guilt has been,
Foolish and vain were all our Thoughts, .
And all our Lives were Sin.
C 2 But,
But, O our Souls, for ever Praise,
For ever love his Name; Who turns our Feet from dang'rous Ways,
Of Folly, Sin, and Shame.
'Tis not by Works of Righteousness,
Which our own Hands have done;
But we are sav'd by sov'reign Grace,
Abounding thro' his Son.
'Tis thro' the purchase of his Death,
Who hung upon the Tree 5
The Spirit is sent down to breathe
On such dry Bones as we.
Rais'd from the Dead we live a-new,
And justify'd by Grace,
We shall appear in Glory too,
And fee our Father's Face,
An unconverted State.
GREAT King of Glory, and of Grace,
We own with humble Shame,
How Vile is our degen'rate Race!
And our sirst Father's Name.
We live enstrang'd afar from God,
And love the distance well,
With haste we run the dang'rous Road
That leads to Death and Hell.
