HYMN 28. H. M. Triumph. r*]

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:
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 helli

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 bosoia 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! RIPPON.

HYMN 29. C. M. Swanwick. [*]

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;
e Nor dares a creature guess-
e Which of the glories brightest shone-
d 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 humbie part,

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 [*]

Worthy the Lamb. Rov. v, 12. 01 MY LORY to God on high:

UT heaven and earth reply

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. 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,
Let this dear hope repel the dart-
That Jesus bears as 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. STEELE.
HYMN 32. 8 & 7. Calvary. [*1

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 ;
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. 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. [*]

Redeeming Love.
01 ATOW begin the heav'nly theme,

I 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.
0 6 He subdu'd th’infernal pow'rs;

His tremendous foes and ours,
From their cursed empire drove,

Mighty in redeeming love.
o my Hither, then, your music bring,
u Strike aloud each joyful string;

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.
4 'Tis thine the passions to recali,

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. 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;
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.
