Honor and power divine;
And blessings, more than we can give,
Be, Lord, forever thine.

4 Let all that dwell above the sky,
And air, and earth, and seas,
Conspire to list thy glories high,
And speak thine endless praise.

To bless the sacred name
Of him that sits upon the throne,
And to adore the Lamb'.

See the man of sorrows now
From the fight returned victorious 5
Every knee to him shall bow:

Till all thine enemies i.

Our holy Lord to bless;
Praise ye his name;
In him we will rejoice,
And make a joyful noise,
Shouting with heart and voice,
Worthy the Lamb'.

Yet we shall never cease
Praising his name;
To him our songs we bring,
Hail him our gracious King,
And without ceasing sing,
Worthy the Lamb'

Various JNames and Offices of Christ.

1 Join all the glorious names
Of wisdom, love, and power, |
That ever mortals knew, -
That angels ever bore —
All are too mean to speak his worth,
Too mean to set my Savior forth.

My tongue would bless thy name:
By thee the joyful news
Of our salvation came —
The joyful news of sins forgiven,
Of death subdued, and peace with heaven.

3 Be thou my Counsellor,
My patron and my guide,
And through this desert land
Still keep me near thy side.
O let my feet ne'er run astray,
Nor rove nor seek the crooked way.

4 I love my Shepherd's voice,
His watchful eyes shall keep
wandering soul among
The thousands of his sheep;
He feeds his flock, he calls their names,
His bosom bears the tender lambs.

5 My Master and my Lord, ,
y Conqueror and my King,
Thy sceptre, and thy sword,
Thy reigning grace, I sing.
Thine is the power; behold, fit
In willing bonds beneath thy feet.

And all the kindred nations bless;

Nor shalf his spreading kingdom cease.

A hiding-place from chilling wind;

Qr, when the raging tempests beat,

A. “o warm, a safe retreat.

3 In burning sands and thirsty ground,
He like a river shall be o
Or lofty rock, beneath whose shade
The weary traveller rests his head.

His glory, grace, and majesty;
All ears shall hearken, and obtain
The words of life from Christ the Lamb.

Christ the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
1 THou art the Way—to thee alone
From sin and death we flee;
And he who would the Father seek,
Must seek him, Lord, by thee.
2 Thou art the Truth—thy word alone
True wisdom can impart;
Thou only canst inform the mind,
And purify the heart.
3 Thou art the Life — the rending tomb
Proclaims thy conquering arm,
And those who put their trust in thee
Nor death nor hell shall harm.
4 Thou art the Way, the Truth, the Life;
Grant us that way to know,
That truth to keep, that life to taste,
Whose joys eternal flow.

Amid this starless waste of woe
To find a pathway to the skies,
A light from heaven's eternal glow-
