The Kingdom of Christ. Phil. iv, 4. 1 D EJOICE the Lord is King:
1 Your God and King adore ; Mortals give thanks and sing,
And triumph evermore:
The God of truth and love;
He took his seat above:
He rules air, earth, and heaven:
Are to our Jesus giv'n:
Rejoice aloud, ye saints rejoice. -5 He all his foes shall quell,
Shall all our sins destroy ;
With pure seraphic joy;
Rejoice aloud, ye saints rejoice. 0 6 Rejoice in glorious hope,'
Jesus the Judge shall come-
To their eternal home : g We soon shall hear the archangel's voice : The trump of God shall sound-rejoice! RIPPON.

Glories of God in Redemption. Isai. xliv, 23, 81 LATHER-how wide thy glory shines !
T How high thy wonders rise! o 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;
Adorn the heav'nly plains :
And try their choicest strains.
In that immortal song! 8 Wonder and joy shall tune my heart,
And love command my tongue. Watts's LYR. HYMN 30. 6& 4. C. M. Bermondsey [*]

HYMN 31. L. M. Munich. Moreton. [*]
Christ's Intercession. Heb. vii, 25. 1 TTE lives the great Redeemer lives; 0 I1 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,
On him our humble hopes depend;
Praise to the Redeemer. ITTAIL, thou once despised Jesus!
II 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 laiù ; 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. g 4 Jesus, hail! enthron'd in glory:
There for ever to abide ;
e 5 There for sinners thou art pleading,
There thou dost our place prepare ; Ever for us interceding,
Till in heaven we appear. 0 6 Glory, honour, pow'r and blessing,
Thou art worthy to receive ; o Loudest praises, without ceasing, Meet it is for us to give.
HYMN 33. 7. Redeeming Love. [*]
I Sing aloud in Jesus' name;
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.
His tremendous foes and ours,
Mighty in redeeming love.
Mortals, join the hosts above& Join to praise redeeming love. MADAN'S COL
HYMN. 34. C. M. Windsor. Plymouth. [*]
The Necessity of Renewing Grace. e 1 TTOW helpless guilty nature lies,
1 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? o 'Tis thine, almighty Saviour, thine,
To form the heart anew.
And upward bid them rise ;
From reason's darken'd eyes.
And bid the sinner live ;
'Tis thine alone to give.
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. 1 MOME, Holy Spirit, come,
U 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;
The secret love of God.
Our doubts and fears remove;
Of never-dying love.
