HYMN 269. L. M.
In all thy heavenly beauty shine; Thy brightest robes of glory wear,
And for thy God and King prepare.
Behold the King of glory waits ;
The King of Zion comes to day.
The mighty Lord, who conquer'd hell;
'Tis he who puts your foes to flight.
Behold the King of glory waits ; “ Who is the King of glory, say,
That comes in grandeur on the way ?" 5 The Lord of hosts, the mighty God,
Who rules his foes with iron rod. 'Tis he who your salvation brings, Jesus the Lord, the King of kings. PROUD.
HYMN 270. C. M.
Encourageinent to trust and love God. THROUGH all the changing scenes of life,
In trouble and in joy, The praises of my God shall still
My heart and tongue employ. 2 Of his deliv'rance I will boast,
Till all that are distress'd From my example comfort take,
And charm their griefs to rest. 3 O magnify the Lord with me,
With me exalt his name ! When in distress to him I callid, He to my rescue came.
4 Their drooping hearts were soon refresh'd,
Who look'd to God for aid ;
War and Peace.
In him undaunted we'll contide ;
Torn piece-meal by the roaring tide.
The royal seat of God most high";
While his almighty aid is nigh.
Secure and undisturb'd abide ; Thus to my soul of him I'll say, “He is my fortress, and my stay,
My God in whom I will confide.
And from all noisome pestilence;
HYMN 272. C. M.
The Christian Pilgrimage.
All fears and foes before us fly,
And troubles all be gone.
2 The prospect opens, grand and new,
See Salem's walls arise ;
In yonder happy skies.
Before Jehovah's face?
With all the angel' race?
With faithfulness our way;
But love, believe, obey.
In songs of honour sing;
For he alone is King.
HYMN 273. C. M.
Divine Providence in Air, Earth, and Sea,
God of eternal power !
And tempests cease to roar.
Successive comforts bring ;
Thy flowers adorn the spring.
Heaven, earth, and air, are thine; When clouds distil in fruitful show'rs,
The Author is divine. 4 Those wand'ring cisterns in the sky,
Borne by the winds around, With watery treasures well supply
The furrows of the ground.
5 The thirsty ridges drink their fill,
And ranks of corn appear;
Delight in Ordinances.
'Tis heaven to see his smiling face,
Though in his earthly courts.
His saving power displays:
With kind and quick'ning rays.
Descends and fills the place,
And sheds abroad his grace.
The secrets of thy will;
Are brethren that agree!
The path to unity! 2 When streams of love from Christ, the Spring,
Descend to ev'ry soul,
Shades and bedews the whole : 3 'Tis like the oil divinely sweet
On Aaron's reverend head,
And o'er his garments spread.
4 'Tis pleasant as the morning dews
That fall on Zion's hill,
distil. Watts, altered. HYMN 276. Tens and Elevens Metre.
The eternal and Sovereign God. Ps. xciii.
This wide creation'rose at his command,
Built by his word, and 'stablish'd by his hand : Long stood his throne ere he began creation,
And his own godhead is the firm foundation. 2 God is th' eternal King: thy foes in vain
Raise thy rebellion to confound thy reign :
And roar, and toss their waves against the skies, Foaming at heaven they rage with wild commotion,
But heaven's high arches scorn the swelling ocean. 3
Ye tempests, rage no more; ye floods, be still;
Firm are his promises, and strong his hand :
BLESS the Lord, my soul !
Let all within me join,
Whose favours are divine.
Nor let his mercies lie.
And without praises die. 3 'T'is he forgives thy sins, "Tis he relieves thy pain,
