Extol his kingly power,

Kiss the exalted Son,
Who died, and lives to die no more,

High on his Father's throne :
Our advocate with God,

He undertakes our cause,
And spreads through all the earth abroad

The victory of his cross.
That bloody banner see,

And in your Captain's sight,
Fight the good fight of faith with me,

My fellow-soldiers, fight :
In mighty phalanx join'd,

To battle all proceed;
Arm'd with th’unconquerable mind

Which was in CHRIST your Head.

Hymn 21. S. M.
TATHER, our hearts we lift

T Up to thy gracious throne,
And thank thee for the precious gift

Of thine incarnate Son ! 2 The gift unspeakable

We thankfully receive,
And to the world thy goodness tell,

And to thy glory live.
3 Jesus, The Holy Child,

Doth by his birth declare,

That God and man are reconciled,

And one in him we are.
4 Salvation through his name

To all mankind is given,
And loud his infant cries proclaim

A peace 'twixt earth and heaven. 5 A peace on earth he brings

Which never more shall end :
The Lord of hosts, the King of kings,

Declares himself our Friend ; 6 Assumes our flesh and blood,

That we his grace may gain :
The everlasting SON OF GOD,

The mortal Son of Man. 7 His kingdom from above

He doth to us impart,
And pure benevolence and love

O’erflow the faithful heart:
Changed in a moment, we

The sweet attraction find,
With open arms of charity

Embracing all mankind. 9 O might they all receive

The new-born Prince of Peace,
And meekly in his Spirit live!

And in his love increase ! 10 Till he convey us home,

Cry every soul aloud,
