Redemption worthy of a God,

Ye seraphs, catch the pleasing theme,

He groan'd his precious life away,

It is Finished. John xix. 30.
IS finish'd!-so the Saviour cried,
"Tis finish'd-yes, the race is run, The battle fought, the victory won. 2 "Tis finish'd-all that heaven decreed, And all the ancient prophets said, Is now fulfill'd, as was design'd, In me the Saviour of mankind. 3 "Tis finish'd-this my dying groan Shall sins of every kind atone: Millions shall be redeem'd from death, By this my last expiring breath. 4 "Tis finish'd-heaven is reconcil'd, And all the powers of darkness spoil'd: Peace, love, and happiness again Return and dwell with sinful men. 5 "Tis finish'd-let the joyful sound Be heard through all the nations round: "Tis finish'd-let the echo fly
Thro' heaven and hell, thro' earth and sky.
86. C. M. Redemption and Protection from Spiritual Fremios
ARISE my soul, my joyful powers,
And triumph in
Awake, my voice, and loud proclaim
2 He raised me from the deeps cf sin,
3 The arms of everlasting love Beneath my soul he placed; And on the Rock of ages set
My slippery footsteps fast. 4 The city of my blest abode,
Is wall'd around with grace; Salvation for a bulwark stands To shield the sacred place.
5 Satan may vent his sharpest spite, And all his legions roar ;
Almighty mercy guards my life, And bounds his raging power. 6 Arise, my soul, awake my voice, And tunes of pleasure sing; Loud hallelujahs shall address My Saviour and my King.
THE HOLY SPIRIT.

OME, Holy Spirit, heavenly Dove,
In these cold hearts of ours.

4 Dear Lord! and shall we ever live
5 Come, Holy Spirit, heavenly Dove,
89. L. M. Watts.
The Sight of God and Christ in Heaven.
from heaven, immortal Dove
Stoop down, and take us on thy wings, And mount and bear us far above The reach of these inferior things.
2 Beyond, beyond this lower sky,
Up where eternal ages roll,
3 0 for a sight, a pleasing sight,
4 Adoring saints around him stand,
5 When shall the day, dear Lord, appear,
