My ever-dear delight!
And still increasing light!
Be Thou for ever near;
And view my Saviour there! 9
D. 7's. Christ's triumphant reign.
Rev. xi, 15; xis, 6. 1 HARK! the song of Jubilee !
Loud as mighty thunders roar; Or the fulness of the sea,
When it breaks upon the shore ! Hallelujah! for the Lord
God omnipotent shall reign: Hallulejah! let the word
Echo round the earth and main. 2 Hallelujah! Hark! the sound,
From the centre to the skies, Wakes, above, beneath, around,
All creation's harmonies: See Jehovah's banners furld ;
Sheath'd his sword : He speaks—’tis done, And the kingdoms of this world
Are the kingdoms of his Son.
. 3 He shall reign from pole to pole
With illimitable sway;
Yonder heavens have pass'd away:
Man's last enemy shall fall: Hallelujah! Christ in God,
God in Christ, is all in all.
Luther's. Sinai, Calvary, and Olivet. Ex. xix, 16-19. Luke xxiii, 33. Zech. siv, 4, 5. 1 The Lord of might, from Sinai's brow, · Gave forth his voice of thunder; And Israel lay on earth below,
Outstretch'd in fear and wonder:
The rocks were rent asunder. 2 The Lord of love, on Calvary,
A meek and suff'ring stranger,
In nature's hour of danger:
And met his Father's anger.
The King of all created,
Jesus in the clouds appears:
Now to dry his people's tears:
Long they felt like men forlorn,
While they sigh'd for his return:
All their sorrows now are past.
They are going to their rest:
With their Lord they shall be blest:
in Advent. 4 Happy people! grace unbounded,
Grace alone, exalts you thus:
Sing for ever:- Not to us,
Glory to the God of heav'n! 12
8.8.6. The Lord's kingdom established.
Isa. ii, 17, 18; xxiv, 23. Rev. xi, 15.
To swell the lofty strain:
He comes on earth to reign.
Jehovah sets his throne:
And serve the Lord alone.
And ev'ry idol fall:
And God be all in all,
8.7.4. The Judgment. Isa. xxv, 9. Matt. xxv, 34. John v, 28, 29. 1 Day of judgment! day of wonders !
Hark! the trumpet's awful sound,
How the summons
Will the sinner's heart confound ! 2 See the Judge, our nature wearing,
Cloth’d in majesty divine !
Own me in that day for thine. 3 At his call the dead awaken,
Rise to life from earth and sea:
What will then become of thee? 4 But to those, who have confessed,
Lov'd, and serv'd the Lord below,
You for ever
