5 let us indulge a cheerful frame,

For joy becomes a feast ;
We love the mem'ry of his name

More than the wine we taite.
HYMN XXV. Common Merre.

Divine Glories and Graces. ILIOW are thy glories here display'd,

11 Great God, how bright they shine, While at thy word we break the bread,

And pour the flowing wine !
2 Here thy revenging justice stands,

And pleads its dreadful cause ;
Here saving mercy fpreads her hands,

Like Jesus on the cross.
3 Thy faints attend, with ev'ry grace,

On this great facrifice ;
And love appears with cheerful face,

And faith with fixed eyes.
4. Our hope in waiting posture "fits,

To heav'n directs her fight ; Here ev'ry warmer paffion meets,

And warmer pow'rs unite.
5 Zeal and revenge perform their part,

And rising fin destroy ;
Repentance comes with aching heart,

Yet not forbids the joy. 6 Dear Saviour, change qurb to fighti.

Ler fin fowever die ;
Then shall our souls be all delight,

And ev'ry tear be dry.

Rivers of endless joys above,
