Till in heaven ye sing before him,
1 BEHOLD! the grace appears,
2 "Glory to God on high,
And heavenly peace on earth; Good-will to men-to angels joy, At the Redeemer's birth!"
3 In worship so divine
Let men employ their tongues; With the celestial host we join, And loud repeat their songs
4 "Glory to God on high,
And heavenly peace on earth; Good-will to men-to angels joy, At our Redeemer's birth!"
1 WE come with joyful song,
Glad tidings from an angel's tongue,
2 What transports doth his name
His glorious titles we proclaim-
3 Glory to God on high,
All hail the happy morn:
We join the anthems of the sky-

1 HARK! the glad sound! the Saviour comes, The Saviour proinised long!
Let every heart prepare a throne,
2 He comes the prisoner to release,
The gates of brass before him burst,'
3 He comes-from thickest films of vice
And on the eyes oppressed with night-
4 He comes the broken heart to bind,

1 HARK! what celestial sounds,
Now all is still,
In tuneful notes,
2 Th' angelic hosts descend,
With harmony divine:
See how from heaven they bend
Fear not, say they, Jesus, your king
3 He comes, your souls to save
Your voices raise,
With sons of light,
Your songs unite
Glory to God on high!
Ye mortals, spread the sound,
For peace on earth,
To man is given,
Him have I chosen, and in him
2 On him, in rich effusion poured,
My truths and judgment he shall show
3 Gentle and still shall be his voice;
4 The feeble spark to flames he 'll raise;
Judgment he shall bring forth to truth,
5 The progress of his zeal and power
Till foreign lands and distant isles

The Baptism of Jesus.
1 SEE from on high a light divine
And hear the sacred voice of heaven,
2 "This is my well-beloved Son,"
3 His mission thus confirmed from heaven, The great Messiah came,
And heavenly wisdom taught to man,
4 The path of heavenly peace he showed,
may we then who own him Lord,
his loved name profess,
our words and actions prove
we his mind possess !

Has all his mightiest works outdone. 3 Grace! 'tis a sweet, a charming themeOur thougnts rejoice at Jesus' name! Ye angels, dwell upon the sound; Ye heavens, reflect it to the ground! 4 Oh! may we reach that happy place Where he unveils his lovely face! Where all his beauties to behold, And sing his name with harps of gold!

Glorying in Christ.
1 IS there on earth a nobler name
Who can assert a higher claim,
2 The Son of God, adorned with grace
He bears to our rebellious race

And shall another Lord be sought,
4 Ashamed of Jesus! shall we let
5 Forbid it, Lord! nor let us yield
But each, with holy courage filled,

Character of Christ.
1 WITH warm delight and grateful jɔy Let all our best affections move,
When we on Christ our thoughts employ,On him, whom, though unseen, we love. 2 How bright a pattern, and how pure, Hath he in all things kindly given, To make our path of duty sure,
And guide our wandering steps to heaven! 3 What constancy, what pious zeal, To do his heavenly Father's will, His law and mercy to reveal, And his all-gracious plans fulfil! 4 In all, with gratitude we view The steady purpose of his soul, Our wordly passions to subdue, And all the powers of sin control. 5 Father of all! his God and ours! Accept the humble, joyful praise, Which, with our souls' united powers, For thy rich grace, through him, we raise.
