To millions in the heavenly clime, While heaven and glory they are mine,

C Ho RUs.
O sound his praise, &c.

5 Thro' boundless fields of endless light,
My mind is left to ponder;
I sail through seas of glory bright,
O glorious scenes of wonder!
Angelic notes, in highest strains,
And holy saints his love proclaim,
While loud hosannas to his name
Are ringing through the blissful plain.

CHoRus.

O sound his praise ye heavenly choir,
He sav'd us from the burning fire.

INNERS, take the friendly warning— Soon that awful day shall break, And the trumpet with its dawning, All the slumb’ring millions wake.

2 See assembled ev’ry nation!
Lofty cities, temples, tow'ers,
Wrapt in dreadful conflagration,
Earth and sea the flame devours.

3 Ye, who to the world dissemble,
While you practice deeds of night,
Sinners, now behold and tremble;
All your crimes are brought to light.

4 Lost in case, or carnal pleasure,
Sporting on the burning brink;
Now, you say, you have no leisure,
You can find no time to think.

4 Pause, and hear the voice of reason—
Catch the moments as they fly—
You who lose the present season,
You must all find time to die.

- HYMN 28.—8, 7, & 4.
Farewell to missionaries.
G9, ye heralds of salvation,
Go proclaim, Redeeming blood:

Publish to that barb’rous nation,
Peace and pardon from our God.

Tell the heathen,
None but Christ can do them goed.

2. While the gospel trump you're sounding
May the Spirit seal the word.
And thro’ sov’reign grace abounding,
Heathen bow and own the Lord;
Idols leaving,
God alone shall be ador'd.

3 Distant tho’ our souls are blending,
Still our hearts are warm and true ;
In our pray'rs to heaven ascending,
Brethren — we'll remember you;
Heav'n preserve you,
Safely all your jov.aey through.

4. When your mission here is finish'd,
And your work on earth is done,
May your souls, by grace replenish'd
Find acceptance thro’ the Son ;
Thence admitted, -
Dwell forever near his throne.

5 Loud hosannas now resounding,
Make the heavenly arches o'

Grace to sinful men abounding,
... o.

Ransom'd millions sweetly sing;
While with rapture,
All adore their heav'nly King.

HYMN 29.-C. M.
Coronation of Christ.

A'. hail the power of Jesus’ name!
Let angels prostrate foll;
Bring furth the royal diadem,
And crown him—Lord of all.

2 Crown him, ye morning stars of light,
Who fix’d this floating ball;
Now hail the strength of Israel's might,
And crown him—Lord of all.

3 Crown him, ye martyrs of our God,
Who from his altar call;
Extol the stem of Jesse’s rod,
And crown him—Lord of all.

4 Ye chosen seed of Israel's race,
Ye, ransom'd from the fall,
Hail him who saves you by his grace,
And crown him—Lord of all.

5 sinners, whose love can ne'er forgot
The wormwood and the gall:
Go spread your trophies at his feet,
And crown him—Lord of all.

6 Let every kindred, every tribo,
On this terrestrial ball,
To him all majesty ascribe,
And crown him—Lord of all.

ALL D to a sense of duty,
I would obey the call;
And for the sake of Jesus,
I freely give up al",
My former vain enjoyments,
Of pleasure pride, and gain;
That 1 in Jesus's kingdom,
*A mansion may obtain.

2 How often have I struggled
To hold some foolish sin;
Yet, to the heavenly kingdom
1 meant to enter in;
But now I am persuaded -
That nothing else will do -
