LYONS. 10s & 11.


Ps. 29.




Oh, gratefully sing his power and his love! Our Shield and Defender, the Ancient of Days, Pavilioned in splendor, and girded with praise. 2 Oh, tell of his might, oh, sing of his grace, Whose robe is the light, whose canopy, space! His chariots of wrath the deep thunder-clouds form, And dark is his path on the wings of the storm.

3 Thy bountiful care what tongue can recite?
It breathes in the air, it shines in the light,
It streams from the hills, it descends to the plains,
And sweetly distills in the dew and the rains.

4 Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail,
In thee do we trust, nor find thee to fail ;
Thy mercies how tender! how firm to the end!
Our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend.

Rev. 5: 9-14.


E servants of God, your Master proclaim,
And publish abroad his wonderful name:
The name, all victorious, of Jesus extol;
His kingdom is glorious, and rules over all.


2 God ruleth on high, almighty to save;
And still he is nigh, his presence we have:
The great congregation his triumph shall sing,
Ascribing salvation to Jesus, our King.

3 "Salvation to God, who sits on the throne,"
Let all cry aloud, and honor the Son;

Our Saviour's high praises the angels proclaim,—
Fall down on their faces, and worship the Lamb.

2 Bless, O my soul! the God of grace:
His favors claim thy highest praise;
Why should the wonders he hath wrought
Be lost in silence, and forgot?

3 'Tis he, my soul, that sent his Son

To die for crimes which thou hast done;
He owns the ransom, and forgives
The hourly follies of our lives.


4 Let every land his power confess;
Let all the earth adore his grace:
My heart and tongue with rapture join,
In work and worship so divine.

2 Sing of his dying love:
Sing of his rising power:
Sing how he intercedes above
For those whose sins he bore.

WAKE, and sing the song

Wake, every heart, and every tongue,
To praise the Saviour's name!

3 Sing on your heavenly way,

Ye ransomed sinners, sing!
Sing on, rejoicing every day

In Christ, th' exalted King.
4 Soon shall we hear him say,

"Ye blessed children, come!" Soon will he call us hence away To our eternal home.


5 Soon shall our raptured tongue
His endless praise proclaim,
And sweeter voices tune the song
Of Moses and the Lamb.




Ps. 84.


NOME, we who love the Lord,
And let our joys be known;
Join in a song of sweet accord,
And thus surround the throne.

2 Let those refuse to sing

Who never knew our God;
But children of the heavenly King
May speak their joys abroad.

3 The men of grace have found
Glory begun below;
Celestial fruits on earthly ground
From faith and hope may grow.

4 The hill of Zion yields

A thousand sacred sweets,
Before we reach the heavenly fields,
Or walk the golden streets.

5 Then let our songs abound,
And every tear be dry;

We're marching through Immanuel's ground,
To fairer worlds on high.

Psalm 103.

H, bless the Lord, my soul!
Let all within me join,

And aid my tongue to bless his name,
Whose favors are divine.

[ocr errors]

2 Oh, bless the Lord, my soul!
Nor let his mercies lie
Forgotten in unthankfulness,
And without praises die.

3 'Tis he forgives thy sins;
"T is he relieves thy pain;
"T is he that heals thy sicknesses,
And makes thee young again.

4 He crowns thy life with love,

When ransomed from the grave;
He who redeemed my soul from hell,
Hath sovereign power to save.

Psalm 34.


HROUGH all the changing scenes of life,

In trouble and in joy,
The praises of my God shall still
My heart and tongue employ.

2 Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
With me exalt his name!

When in distress to him I called,
He to my rescue came.

3 The hosts of God encamp around
The dwellings of the just;
Deliverance he affords to all
Who on his succor trust.

4 Oh, make but trial of his love:
Experience will decide

How blest are they, and only they,
Who in his truth confide.

Ps. 149 2.

ING, ye redeemèd of the Lord,

Pilgrims for Zion's city bound,
Be joyful in your King.


2 His hand divine shall lead you on
Through all the blissful road,
Till to the sacred mount you rise
And see your smiling God.
