6 Each moment water'd by thy care,
And nourish'd by thy grace,
Of righteousness and peace.
Worthy the Lamb.”
With angels round the throne !
But all their joys are one.
- To be exalted thus;"
“ For he was slain for us.' 3 Jesus is worthy to receive,
Honour and power divine ;
Be, Lord, for ever thine.
And air, and earth, and seas;
And speak thine endless praise. 5 Let all creation join in one,
To bless the sacred name
And to adore the Lamb ! 248.
"He that hath seen me, hath seen the Father.
1 OUR Saviour alone, the Lord let us bless, Who reigns on his throne, the Prince of our
peace; Who evermore saves us by shedding his blood;
All hail, holy Jesus, our Lord and our God !
Thou merciful spring of pity and grace;
3 Preserve us in love while here we abide,
O never remove thy presence, nor hide
With joy, the blest vision completed in thee!
As it hath been, is now, and always shall be.
And publish abroad his wonderful name,
His kingdom is glorious, and rules over all.
And still he is nigh, his presence we have ;
Ascribing salvation to Jesus our King.
Let all cry aloud, and honour the Son;
Fall down on their faces and worship the Lamb! 4 Then let us adore and give him his right,
All glory and power, and wisdom and might;
, And thanks never-ceasing, and infinite love. 250. The Holiness of God manifested in the Sacrifice
of the Cross. 10 THOU eternal victim, slain
A sacrifice for guilty man!
And plead'st thy death for sinners now
Thou stand'st the ever-slaughtered Lamb, Thy Priesthood still remains the same :
Thy years, O God, can never fail,
Thy goodness is unchangeable !
But stand unshaken as thy love,
If David call him Lord, how is he his Son! 1 HOSANNA to the Royal Son
Of David's ancient line !
Mysterious and divine !
And offspring is the same;
In our Immanuel's name!
Whom David Lord did call;
Now own him Lord of all.
With peaceful news from heaven;
To Christ the Lord be given ! 5 Let mortals ne'er refuse to take
Th' hosannas on their tongues,
Their silence into songs. 252.
Kiss the Son lest he be angry.
1 JEHOVAH speaks, let Israel hear,
Let all the earth rejoice and fear,
2 I am the last, and I the first,
The Saviour God, and God the just;
Such justice and salvation too!
Light, life, and heaven, are in my hands.
Nor shall the word in vain return;
Lies all their strength and righteousness ;
I'll clothe them with eternal shame!
Of Israel from their sins be freed;
What wrath is like the wrath of the Lamb ?
Did Christ, the Son of God, appear ;
No flaming sword, nor thunder there!
Of sins, and save our souls from hell!
Trust in his mighty name and live;
His hands a thousand blessings give.
On rebels who refuse the grace,
Praise him in evangelic strains,
And distant islands join their voice.
But grace and truth support his throne;
Justice is their eternal ground.
Shakes the wide earth, and cleaves the tombs!
The mountains melt, the seas retire !
Fly from the sight, and shun the day;
And sing, for your redemption's nigh. 255. The goodness of God in Spiritual mercies. 1 FROM Calvary flows a fountain cool,
Of water and of blood !
Or famed Siloam's flood.
That fountain in his day,
Wash all their guilt away.
Lose its all-cleansing power;
Be saved to sin no more.
To all our souls apply ;
Grant that to sin we die :-
Safe in the realms above;
And sing thy boundless love.
