HYMN 28. H. M. Triumph. [*]
The Kingdom of Christ. Phil. iv, 4.
EJOICE the Lord is King:


Your God and King adore;
Mortals give thanks and sing,

And triumph evermore:
Lift up the heart, lift up the voice,
Rejoice aloud, ye saints rejoice.
2 Rejoice-the Saviour reigns!
The God of truth and love;
When he had purg'd our stains,
He took his seat above:

Lift up the heart, lift up the voice, Rejoice aloud, ye saints rejoice. -3 His kingdom cannot fail,

He rules air, earth, and heaven: The keys of death and hell

Are to our Jesus giv'n:

o Lift up the heart, lift up the voice, Rejoice aloud, ye saints rejoice.

-5 He all his foes shall quell, Shall all our sins destroy; And every bosom swell,

With pure seraphic joy;

o Lift up the heart, lift up the voice, Rejoice aloud, ye saints rejoice.

0 6 Rejoice in glorious hope,

Jesus the Judge shall come

And take his servants up
To their eternal home:

g We soon shall hear the archangel's voice:

The trump of God shall sound-rejoice!

HYMN 29. C. M.


C. M. Swanwick. [*]

Glories of God in Redemption. Isai. xliv, 23,
ATHER-how wide thy glory shines!
How high thy wonders rise!


> Known thro' the earth by thousand signs, By thousands thro' the skies.

d 2 But when we view thy strange design, To save rebellious worms;

p Where vengeance and compassion join, In their divinest forms;

g 3 Here the whole Deity is known;
e Nor dares a creature guess-
e Which of the glories brightest shone-
The justice or the grace.


b 4 Now the full glories of the Lamb,
Adorn the heav'nly plains:

Bright seraphs learn Emmanuel's name,
And try their choicest strains.

o 5 O may I bear some humble part,
In that immortal song!

8 Wonder and joy shall tune my heart, And love command my tongue.


HYMN 30. 6 & 4. C. M. Bermondsey [*] Worthy the Lamb. Rov. v, 12.

Praise ye his Name!

His love and grace adore,
Who all our sorrows bore;
And sing for evermore-
Worthy the Lamb.

2 All they around the throne
Cheerfully join in one,
Praising his Name;

We, who have felt his blood,
Sealing our peace with God,
Sound his dear name abroad-
Worthy the Lamb.

3 Join all ye ransom'd race,
Our Lord and God to bless;
Praise ye his name:

In him we will rejoice,

And make a joyful noise,
Shouting with heart and voice-

Worthy the Lamb.

4 What tho' we change our place-
Yet we shall never cease

Praising his name:

To him our songs we bring-
Hail him our gracious King,
And without ceasing sing,
Worthy the Lamb.


HYMN 31. L. M. Munich. Moreton. [*] Christ's Intercession. Heb. vii, 25.


[ocr errors]


E lives-the great Redeemer lives; What joy the blest assurance gives; -And now before his Father God,

Pleads the full merits of his blood.

e 2 Repeated crimes awake our fears,
And justice, arm'd with frowns, appears ;
-But in the Saviour's lovely face,

o Sweet mercy smiles-and all is peace!
-3 Hence, then, ye black, despairing thoughts-
Above our fears, above our faults,,
o His powerful intercessions rise;
And guilt recedes, and terrour dies.
e 4 In ev'ry dark distressful hour,
When sin and Satan join their pow'r,
-Let this dear hope repel the dart-
That Jesus bears us on his heart.
5 Great Advocate, almighty Friend!
On him our humble hopes depend;
o Our cause can never, never fail,
For Jesus pleads, and must prevail.



HYMN 32. 8 & 7. Calvary. [*]


Praise to the Redeemer.

Thou didst free salvation bring;
By thy death thou didst release us,
From the tyrant's deadly sting.

2 Paschal Lamb, by God appointed,
All our sins on thee were laid;
Great High Priest, by God anointed,
Thou hast full atonement made.
3 Contrite sinners are forgiven,
Through the virtue of thy blood:
Open'd is the gate of heaven,

Peace is made for man with God.

4 Jesus, hail! enthron'd in glory:
There for ever to abide ;

All the heav'nly hosts adore thec,
Seated at thy Father's side.

e 5 There for sinners thou art pleading, There thou dost our place prepare; Ever for us interceding,

Till in heaven we appear.

o 6 Glory, honour, pow'r and blessing, Thou art worthy to receive;

• Loudest praises, without ceasing, Meet it is for us to give.

HYMN 33. 7s. Redeeming Love. [*]

Redeeming Love.

NOW begin the heav'nly theme,

Sing aloud in Jesus' name;

-Ye who Jesus' kindness prove,
Triumph in redeeming love.

2 Ye who see the Father's grace,
Beaming in the Saviour's face,
o As to Canaan on ye move,

Praise and bless redeeming love.

e 3 Mourning souls, dry up your tears,
Banish all your guilty fears;
o See your guilt and curse remove,
Cancell'd by redeeming love.

e 4 Ye, alas! who long have been
Willing slaves of death and sin!
-Now from bliss no longer rove,
Stop, and taste redeeming love.
o 5 Welcome, all by sin oppress'd-
Welcome to his sacred rest:
d Nothing brought him from above,
Nothing but redeeming love.

o 6 He subdu'd th' infernal pow'rs;
His tremendous foes and ours,
From their cursed empire drove,
Mighty in redeeming love.

o 7 Hither, then, your music bring,
u Strike aloud each joyful string;
-Mortals, join the hosts above
g Join to praise redeeming love.


HYMN. 34. C. M. Windsor. Plymouth. [*]

e 1

The Necessity of Renewing Grace.
TOW helpless guilty nature lies,

H'Unconscious of its load!

e The heart, unchang'd, can never rise To happiness and God.

p 2 The will perverse, the passions blind, In paths of ruin stray;

Reason, debas'd, can never find

The safe, the narrow way.

e 3 Can ought, beneath a pow'r divine,
The stubborn will subdue?
'Tis thine, almighty Saviour, thine,
To form the heart anew.

4 'Tis thine the passions to recall,
And upward bid them rise;
And make the scales of errour fall,
From reason's darken'd eyes.

5 To chase the shades of death away,
And bid the sinner live ;

A beam of heav'n, a vital ray'Tis thine alone to give.

p 6 O change these wretched hearts of ours,
And give them life divine!

Then shall our passions and our pow'rs,
Amighty Lord, be thine!


HYMN 35. S. M.

Watchman. [*]

Prayer for the Spirit. John xiv, 26.

COME, Holy Spirit, come,

Let thy bright beams arise;
Dispel the sorrow from our minds
The darkness from our eyes.

2 Convince us of our sin;
Then lead to Jesus' blood;
And to our wond'ring view reveal
The secret love of God.

3 Revive our drooping faith;

Our doubts and fears remove; And kindle in our breasts the flame Of never-dying love.
