Christian Privileges and Obligations.
4 Heighten the force of good desire,
5 Strong and more strong our passions rule,
1 COME, trembling souls, forget your fear,
2 Long time he's called your souls in vain,
Once more in love he's come to try;
3 Though long you have his grace abus'd,
Yet even now he will forgive,
4 Or will you crowd him from your door,
5 O sinners, hear, he calls again,
C. M. WATTS.
The Rich Provisions of the Gospel.
Thy grace can melt the stubborn Jew,
2 Wide as the reach of Satan's rage
It's not confin'd to sex or age,
3 While grace is offer'd to the prince,
4 Come, all ye wretched sinners, come,
5 His doctrine is almighty love;
To turn a raven to a dove,
The lion to a lamb.
6 O could we raise a song of praise, Half equal to his love,
The heav'ns would ring while we should Through all the courts above.
C. M. VERMONT COLL.
1 ON Zion his most holy mount,
2 Marrow and fatness are the food
? See to the vilest of the vile,
A free acceptance given;
See rebels, by adopting grace,
4 The pain'd, the sick, the dying now,
5 But O what draughts of bliss unknown,
6 There joys immeasurably high,
And springs of life that never dry,
C. M. VERMONT COLL
1 WHAT heavenly music do we hear?
Ye souls in bondage, lend an ear,
2 How sweetly do the tidings roll,
From land to land, from pole to pole;
3 Good news, good news to Adam's race,
To sing redeeming love and grace;
4 The gospel sounds a sweet release
And bids them welcome home to peace;
5 Jesus is on the mercy-seat,
Before him bend the knee;
Let heav'n and earth his praise repeat,
6 Sinners, be wise, return, and come
The Spirit bids you welcome home,
7 Come, ye redeem'd, your tribute bring,
While on the road to glory sing,
LIFE, DEATH, AND EXALTATION OF CHRIST.
Prepare ye the way of the Lord.
1 A VOICE from the desert comes awful and shrill;
The Lord is advancing! prepare ye the way!
2 Bring down the proud mountain, though towering to heaven,
And be the low valley exalted on high: The rough path and crooked be made smooth and even,
For, Zion! your King, your Redeemer is nigh. 3 The beams of salvation his progress illume; The lone drearywilderness sings of her Lord; The rose and the myrtle there suddenly bloom And the olive of peace spreads its branches abroad.
1 WAKE, O my soul, and hail the morn,
See, how the angels wing their way,
2 Hark! what sweet music-what a song-
3 Come, join the angels in the sky,
C. M. MEALEY.
1 MORTALS, awake, with angels join,
Joy, love, and gratitude, combine
2 In heav'n the rapt'rous song began,
3 Swift through the vast expanse it flew,
The theme, the song, the joy, was new,
4 Hark! the cherubic armies shout,
Good will and peace are heard throughout
5 Hail Prince of Life! for ever hail,
Though earth, and time, and life should fall,
8s & 7s. CAYWOOD.
1 HARK!-what mean those holy voices, Sweetly sounding through the skies? Lo! the angelic host rejoices;
Heavenly hallelujahs rise.
2 Hear them tell the wondrous story, Hear them chant in hymns of joy, "Glory in the highest-glory!
Glory be to God most high!
3 Peace on earth-good-will from heaven,
4 Christ is born, the great Anointed;
