[graphic]

The parts of Divine Service specially appointed to be sung by the Church of England are—the Psalms for the day, including the 'Venite' and Easter Anthem at Morning Prayer,—the Hymns after the first and second lessons,—the three Creeds,—the Anthem after the third Collect,—the Litany, — and the 'Sanctus' and 'Gloria in excelsis' in the Communion Service.

As full liberty seems to be left in the choice of Anthems, some of the most generally received Metrical Hymns have been collected to serve for this purpose;—the words and the music of many of them are very beautiful, and their use seems to be sufficiently sanctioned by the Church.

HYMNS.

HYMN 1.

Lo! He comes in clouds descending,
Once for favoured sinners slain;

Thousand thousand Saints attending
Swell the triumph of His train.
Hallelujah! See the Son of God appear.

Every eye shall now behold Him,
Robed in dreadful majesty;

Those who set at nought and sold Him, Pierced and nailed Him to the tree, Deeply wailing, shall the true Messiah see.

Yea, Amen! let all adore Thee,

High on Thine eternal throne; Savioub, take the power and glory, Claim the kingdom for Thine own. Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Amen.
