C. M. Advent. 1 Joy to the world, the Lord is come!
Let earth receive her King :
And all creation sing.
Let men their songs employ; While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains,
Repeat the sounding joy.
Nor thorns infest the ground;
Far as the curse is found.
And makes the nations prove The glories of his righteousness,
The wonders of his love.
Christ reigning. 1 THE God Jehovah reigns;
Let all the nations fear;
And saints be humble there.
2 Jesus the Saviour reigns;
Let earth adore its Lord ;
Swift to fulfil his word. 3 In Zion is his throne;
His honours are divine; His church shall make his wonders known, .
For there his glories shine. 4 How holy is his name!
How terrible his praise !
In all his works of grace.
L M. Public worship 1 WITH one consent let all the earth
To God their cheerful voices raise ;
And sing before Him songs of praise. 2 Convinc'd that He is God alone,
From whom both we and all proceed ;
The flock that He vouchsafes to feed. 3 ( enter then his temple gate,
Thence to his courts devoutly press,
4 For He's the Lord, supremely good,
His mercy is for ever sure:
To endless ages shall endure.
The God whom earth and heav'n adore,
Is now, and shall be evermore. 100
SECOND VERSION. L. M.
Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice;
Come ye before Him, and rejoice.
Without our aid He did us make;
And for his sheep He doth us take. 3 () enter then his gates with praise ;
Approach with joy his courts unto;
For it is seemly so to do.
His mercy is for ever sure;
L. M. Public worship 1 BEFORE Jehovah's awful throne,
Ye nations bow with sacred joy ;
He can create, and He destroy.
He brought us to his fold again. 3 We'll crowd thy gates with thankful songs;
High as the heav'ns our voices raise;
Shall fill thy courts with sounding praise. 4 Wide as the world is thy command;
Vast as eternity thy love;
L. M. Praise for pardoning mercy. 1 My soul, inspir'd with sacred love, God's holy Name for ever bless ; Of all his favours mindful prove, And still thy grateful thanks express.
2['Tis He that all thy sins forgives,
And after sickness makes thee sound;
By Him with grace and mercy crown'd.] 3 The Lord abounds with tender love,
And unexampled acts of grace;
4 God will not always harshly chide,
But with his anger quickly part;
5 As high as heav'n its arch extends
Above this little spot of clay,
6 As far as 'tis from east to west,
So far has He our sins remov'd,
7[Let ev'ry creature jointly bless
The mighty Lord : and thou, my heart, With grateful joy thy thanks express, And in this concert bear thy part.]
