Revelation v, 9. (L. M.) 1 NOW let us join with hearts and tongues,
And emulate the angels' songs:
songs that angels cannot sing, 2 They praise the Lamb, who once was slain,
But we can add a higher strain,
But that, “He suffer'd all for us !"
Sure 'tis the wonder of the skies,
So cold, so unconcern'd should prove! 4 Oh glorious hour! it comes with speed,
When we from sin and darkness freed,
Hebrews iv, 14-16. (L. M.) 1 WHERE high the heav'nly temple stands,
The house of God, not made with hands,
The guardian of mankind appears.
And pour'd on earth, his precious blood,
3 In ev'ry pang that rends the heart,
The Man of Sorrows had a part :
And to the sufferer sends relief. 4 With boldness therefore, at the throne,
Let us make all our sorrows known,
To help us in the evil hour. 99
Genesis xxii, 14. (P. M.)
And dangers affright,
And foes all unite :
“The Lord will provide."
To stop up our path,
We triumph by faith :
Though oft he has tried,
“The Lord will provide.”
Or goodness we claim,
The Saviour's great name ;
In this our strong tower,
For safety we hide,
The Lord will provide.”
100 Hebrews xii, 22–23. (c. m.)
With those to glory gone;
In heav'n and earth are one! 2 One family we dwell in him,
One church above, beneath ;
The narrow stream of death! 3 One army of the living God,
To his command we bow :
And part are crossing now.
Then when the word is giv’n,
And land us safe in heav'n.
Psalm xx, 7. (c. M.) 1 REMEMBER thee! remember Christ!
While mem'ry holds her place,
Who saves us by his grace ?
2 His glory now, no tongue of man,
Or seraph bright can tell;
That souls are sav'd from hell!
For this his life was giv'n,
For this he pleads in heav'n!
Your grateful praise to give; Sing loud hosannas to the Lord,
Who died, that you might live!
Ephesians vi, 18. (L. M.)
1 WHAT various hindrances we meet,
In coming to a mercy-seat;
2 Pray’r makes the darken’d cloud withdraw ;
Pray'r climbs the ladder Jacob saw :
Brings every blessing from above!
Pray'r makes the christian's armour bright:
Psalm v, 3. (c. M.) 1 THROUGH all the dangers of the night,
Preserv’d, O Lord, by thee :
Again we bow the knee.
And guide us by thine arm : For they are safe, and only they,
Whom thou preserv'st from harm. 3 Let all our words, and all our ways,
Declare that we are thine,
shine. 4 Let us ne'er turn away from thee,
But, Saviour, hold us fast Till with immortal eyes we see
Thy glorious face at last.
Psalm lxxxiv. (P. M.)
1 HOW honour'd, how dear,
That sacred abode,
Their Father and God:
My wearied soul faints,
The home of thy saints.
