IN THE SEVENTEENTH EDITION.

PUBLIC WORSHIP.

9. 105.-And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it." Gen. ii. 3. 1 AGAIN returns the day of holy rest,

Which when he made the world Jehovah blest; When like his own he bade our labours cease, And all be piety, and all be

peace. 2 Let us devote this consecrated day

To learn his will, and all we learn obey;
In pure religion's hallow'd duties share,

And join in penitence, and join in prayer. 3 So shall the God of mercy pleased receive

That only tribute man has power to give;
So shall he hear, while fervently we raise

Our choral harmony in hymns of praise. 4 Father of heaven, in whom our hopes confide, Whose power defends us, and whose precepts

guide ; In life our guardian, and in death our friend, Glory supreme be thine, till time shall end.

14.

75.The resurrection of Christ.
1 CHRIST is risen, the Lord is come,

Bursting from the sealed tomb;
Death and hell in mute dismay,
Render

up

their mightier prey:
Christ is risen, but not alone ;
Death, thy kingdom is o’erthrown!
We shall rise, as He hath risen,
From the deep sepulchral prison.

B

2 Heirs of Adam, sons of clay,

Long in death's dark thrall we lay ;
And went down, in trembling gloom,
To the unawakening tomb.
Heirs of Christ, and sons of God,
In the path our Captain trod,
Now we hope to soar on high,

To the everlasting sky.
3 Mortals once, immortal now,

Our vile bodies off we throw,
Glorious bodies to put on,
Round the great Redeemer's throne.
Lofty hopes !-and their's indeed,
Who the christian life shall lead ;
Christ's below in faith and love,
Christ's in endless bliss above!

your God,

15. S.M.—“ Stand up and bless the Lord your God for ever and ever;

and blessed be thy glorious name, which is exalted above all blessing

and praise." Neh. ix. 5. 1 STAND up and bless the Lord,

Ye people of his choice;
Stand

up
and bless the Lord

,
With heart, and soul, and voice.
2 Though high above all praise,

Above all blessing high,
Who would not fear his holy name,

And laud and magnify. 3 O for the living flame,

From his own altar brought,
To touch our lips, our minds inspire,

And wing to heaven our thought ! 4 There, with benign regard,

Our hymns he deigns to hear; Though unrevealed to mortal sense,

The spirit feels him near.

5 God is our strength and song,

And his salvation ours;
Then be his love in Christ proclaim'd,

With all our ransomed powers. 6 Stand up and bless the Lord,

The Lord your God adore;
Stand up and bless his glorious name,

Henceforth for evermore.

17.

6 85.— The communion of saints. Heb. xii, 18—26. 1 NOT to the mount that burn'd with fire,

To darkness, tempest, and the sound
Of trumpet waxing higher and higher,

Nor voice of words that rent the ground;
While Israel heard, with trembling awe,

Jehovah thunder forth his law;
2 But to Mount Zion we are come,

The city of the living God,
Jerusalem, our heavenly home,

The courts by angel-legions trod,
Where meet in everlasting love,

The church of the first-born above :
3 To God, the Judge of quick and dead,

The perfect spirits of the just,
Jesus, our great new-covenant Head,

The blood of sprinkling, - from the dust,
That better things than Abel's cries,

And pleads a Saviour's sacrifice. 4 O hearken to the healing voice

That speaks from heaven in tones so mild:
To-day are life and death our choice;

To-day, through mercy reconciled,
Our all, to God, we yet may give;
Now let us hear his voice and live.
