2 Almighty Son! incarnate word !
Our Prophet, Priest, Redeemer, Lord; Before thy throne we sinners bend,
To us thy saving grace extend. 3 Eternal Spirit! by whose breath
The soul is rais'd from sin and death;
To us thy quick’ning power extend. 4 Jehovah, Father, Spirit, Son!
Mysterious Godhead, three in one!
Before this raison, whose ]
Isaiah lxiii, 7. (L. M.)
And sing thy great Redeemer's praise ;
His loving-kindness, O how free! 2 He saw me ruin'd in the fall,
Yet lov'd me notwithstanding all ;
His loving-kindness, O how great! 3 Tho' num'rous hosts of mighty foes,
Tho' earth and hell my way oppose,
4 When I pass through the gloomy vale, When all my mortal powers must fail, O! may my last expiring breath,
His loving-kindness sing in death! 5 Then let me mount and soar away
To the bright world of endless day ;
Isaiah lii, 7. (s. M.)
Who stand on Zion's hill!
And words of peace reveal ! 2 How happy are our ears
That hear this joyful sound,
And sought, but never found ! 3 How blessed are our eyes
That see this heav'nly light !
But died without the sight.
And tuneful notes employ :
And deserts learn the joy!
5 The Lord makes bare his arm,
Through all the earth abroad ;
Their Saviour and their God.
Philippians iii, 3. (7's.)
1 IN thy presence we appear ;
Lord we love to worship here,
Thee upon thy mercy seat. 2 Thou, through Christ, art reconcil'd,
Each in him is own'd thy child :
In thy courts to seek thy face.
Let thine ear in love attend;
Hear, for Jesus intercedes.
And we tremble at thy law,
Ev'ry doubt and fear remove. 5 While thy ministers proclaim
Peace and pardon through thy name,
6 From thy house when we return,
Let our hearts within us burn;
Psalm cxlvi, 11. (P. M.)
All the earth shall own his sway;
He will reign through endless day.
God requires not help from man : What though all the world resist him,
God will realize his plan!
2 Nations now from God estranged,
Then shall see a glorious light; Night to day, shall then be changed,
Heav'n shall triumph in the sight. See the ancient idols falling,
Worshipp'd once, but now abhorr'd; Men on Zion's king are calling,
Zion's king by all ador'd. 3 Then shall Israel, long dispersed,
Mourning seek the Lord their God, Look on him, whom once they pierced,
Own and kiss the chast’ning rod.
Then all Isra'l shall be saved,
War and tumult then shall cease,
Rules a conquer'd world in peace. 4 Mighty King, thine arm revealing,
Now thy glorious cause maintain ;
Make them subject to thy reign.
Praise thy name, thou only wise,
Join the triumph of the skies.
Isaiah xxxii, 15. (c. m.) 1 POUR down thy Spirit, gracious Lord,
On all assembled here;
With meekness and with fear. 2 Through faith in thee, the soul receives
New life, though dead before ;
Shall live, to die no more.
In those who fear thy name;
To quench the sacred flame.
