General Invitation to praise the Redeemer. FOR a thousand tongues, to sing My great Redeemer's praise; The glories of my God and King, The triumphs of his grace.

2 My gracious Master, and my God,
Assist me to proclaim,—

To spread, through all the earth abroad,
The honours of thy Name.

3 Jesus!-the Name that charms our fears, That bids our sorrows cease; "Tis music in the sinner's ears,

"Tis life, and health, and peace.

4 He breaks the power of cancell❜d sin,
He sets the pris'ner free;

His blood can make the foulest clean;
His blood avail'd for me.

5 He speaks, and, list'ning to his voice, New life the dead receive;

The mournful, broken hearts rejoice;
The humble poor believe.

6 Hear him, ye deaf; his praise, ye dumb, Your loosen'd tongues employ;

Ye blind, behold your Saviour come;
And leap, ye lame, for joy.

S. M.

The song of Moses and the Lamb.

the

Of Moses and the Lamb;
Wake, every heart and every tongue,
To praise the Saviour's Name.
2 Sing of his dying love;
Sing of his rising power;
Sing how he intercedes above

For those whose sins he bore.
3 Ye pilgrims, on the road
To Zion's city, sing;
Rejoice ye in the Lamb of God,-
In Christ, the' eternal King.

4 Soon shall we hear him say,-
Ye blessed children, come;
Soon will he call us hence away,
To our eternal home.

5 There shall each raptured tongue
His endless praise proclaim;
And sweeter voices tune the song
Of Moses and the Lamb.

C. M.

The Heavenly Guest.

COME,

YOME, let us who in Christ believe,
Our common Saviour praise:
To him, with joyful voices, give
The glory of his grace.

2 He now stands knocking at the door Of every sinner's heart:

The worst need keep him out no more,
Or force him to depart.

3 Through grace we hearken to thy voice, Yield to be saved from sin;

In sure and certain hope rejoice,

That thou wilt enter in.

4 Come quickly in, thou heavenly guest, Nor ever hence remove;

But sup with us, and let the feast
Be everlasting love.

C. M. The Lamb worshipped on earth and in heaven. YOME, let us join our cheerful songs the Ten thousand thousand are their tongues, But all their joys are one.

2 Worthy the Lamb that died, they cry, To be exalted thus:

Worthy the Lamb, our hearts reply,
For he was slain for us.

3 Jesus is worthy to receive
Honour and power divine;
And blessings more than we can give,
Be, Lord, forever thine.

4 The whole creation join in one, To bless the sacred name

Of Him that sits upon the throne,
And to adore the Lamb.

L. M.

Jesus reigns.

YOME, let us tune our loftiest song, And raise to Christ our joyful strain; Worship and thanks to Him belong,

COME,

Who reigns, and shall forever reign. 2 His sov'reign power our bodies made; Our souls are his immortal breath; And when his creatures sinn'd, he bled, To save us from eternal death.

3 Burn every breast with Jesus' love;

Bound every heart with rapt'rous joy; And saints on earth, with saints above, Your voices in his praise employ.

4 Extol the Lamb with loftiest song,
Ascend for him our cheerful strain;
Worship and thanks to Him belong,
Who reigns, and shall forever reign.

C. M.

The glories of our King.

COME, ye that love the Saviour's name,
And joy to make it known,

The Sov'reign of your hearts proclaim,
And bow before his throne.

2 Behold your Lord, your Master, crown'd
With glories all divine:

And tell the wond'ring nations round,
How bright those glories shine.

3 When, in his earthly courts, we view
The glories of our King,

We long to love as angels do,
And wish, like them, to sing.

4 And shall we long and wish in vain?
Lord, teach our songs to rise:

Thy love can animate the strain,
And bid it reach the skies.

C. M.

Joining the song of the Church triumphant.

SING

ING we the song of those who stand
Around the' eternal throne,

Of every kindred, clime, and land,-
A multitude unknown.

2 Life's poor distinctions vanish here;
To-day the young, the old,
Our Saviour and his flock, appear,
One shepherd and one fold.
