L. M. First Parr. Blendon. [*] The Glory of Christ and Power of his Gospel. NTOW be my heart inspir'd to sing
I The glories of my Saviour King; e Jesus the Lord, how heav'nly fair
His form! how bright his beauties are ! 2 O’er all the sons of human race
He shines with a superior grace; o Love from his lips divinely flows,
And blessings all his state compose.
With truth and meekness at thy side. e 4 Thine anger, like a pointed dart,
Shall pierce the foes of stubborn heart; e Or words of mercy, kind and sweet,
Shall melt the rebels at thy feet.
Justice and grace are thy delight.
IIis oil of gladness on thy head; 0 And with his sacred Spirit blest
His first-born Son above the rest
Christ and his Church.
1 Adorn’d with majesty and grace! o He comes with blessings from above,
And wins the nations to his love. b 2 At his right hand, our eyes behold
The queen, array'd in purest gold ; -The world admires her heavenly dress, Her robe of joy and righteousness. 3 He forms her beauties like his own,
He calls and seats her near his throne: b Fair stranger, let thy heart forget
The idols of thy native state.
Let him be lov'd, and yet ador'd,
For he's thy Maker, and thy Lord.
To his fair palace in the skies !
Each like a prince in glory reign.
Let ev'ry age his praises spread; While we with cheerful songs approve • The condescensions of his love.
PSALM 46. L.M. FIRST Part. Leeds. Blendon. [*]
Church's Safety amidst Desolations. 1 M OD is the refuge of his saints,
LT When storms of sharp distress invade ;
Down to the deep and buried there;
Our faith shall never yield to fear.
Supplies the city of our God; b Life, love, and joy still gliding through,
And wat'ring our divine abode.
Our grief allays, our fear controls:
And give new strength to fainting souls. g 6 Zion enjoy, her monarch's love,
Secure against a threat’ning hour;
God fights for his Church. 01 T ET Zion in her King rejoice,
U Tho' tyrants rage, and kingdoms rise ;
g He utters his almighty voice,
And Jacob's God is still our aid :
He makes the noise of battle cease ; g When from on high his thunder roars,
He awes the trembling world to peace. 8 4 He breaks the bow, he cuts the spear ;
Chariots he burns with heav'nly flame : p Keep silence, all the earth,-and hear
The sound and glory of his name.
66 I'll be exalted o'er the lands;
“ But still my throne in Zion stands."
Christ ascending and reigning.
To God the sov'reign King!
And hymns of triumph sing.
His heav'nly guards around,
With trumpets joyful sound.
Let mortals learn their strains : Let all the earth his honours sing ;
O'er all the earth he reigns. e 4 Rehearse his praise with awe profound,
Let knowledge lead the song ; Nor mock him with a solemn sound,
Upon a thoughtless tongue. -5 In Isra'l stood his ancient throne,
He lov'd that chosen race;
© But now he calls the world his own,
And heathens taste his grace. 6 The Gentile nations are the Lord's,
There Abraham's God is known; g While pow'rs and princes, shields and swords,
Submit before his throne. PSALM 48. S. M. 1st Part. Dover. Peckham. [*] V.1–8. The Church, the Honour and Safety of a Nation
1 MYREAT is the Lord our God,
CT And let his praise be great, He makes his churches his abode,
His most delightful seat. · b 2 These temples of his grace,
How beautiful they stand! -The honours of our native place,
The bulwarks of our land. - 3 In Zion God is known,
A refuge in distress; e How bright has his salvation shone,
Through all her palaces ! - 4 When kings against her join'd,
And saw the Lord was there ; d In wild confusion of the mind, 0 They fled with hasty fear. e 5 [When navies, tall and proud,
Attempt to spoil our peace, o He sends his tempest roaring loud,
And sinks them in the seas.] - 6 Oft have our fathers told,
Our eyes have often seen,
Where his own sheep have been.
We'll to his house repair;
And seek deliv'rance there.
Ver. 10–14. Gospel Worship and Ordı , 1 DAR as thy name is known,
T The world declares thy praise :
Thy saints, O Lord, before thy throne,
Their songs of honour raise. 0 2 With joy let Judah stand
On Zion's chosen hill, o Proclaim the wonders of thy hand,
And counsels of thy will. e 3 Let strangers walk around
The city where we dweil ; Compass and view the holy ground,
And mark the building well. e 4 The order of thy house,
The worship of thy court, The cheerful songs, the solemn vows, d And make a fair report.
5 How decent and how wise !
How glorious to behold! -Beyond the pomp that charms the eyes ;
And rites adorn'd with gold. 0 6 The God we worship now,
Will guide us till we die ; Will be our God while here below,
And ours above the sky.
PSALM 49. C. M. FIRST Part. Walsal. [b]
Ver. 6—14. The Vanity of Life and Riches.
V To insolence and pride,
With every rising tide ?
Made of the self-same clay,
Of better dust than they?]
His soul a short reprieve ;
On make bis brother live.
The ransom is too high;
That man may never die.
