Heaven and earth must pass away :
RAISE the Lord ! ye heavens adore him,
Praise him, Angels in the height; Sun and moon, rejoice before bim :
Praise him, all ye stars and light: Praise the Lord for he hath spoken,
Worlds bis mighty voice obey'd ! Laws, that never shall be broken,
For their guidance he bath made.
Never shall his promise fail ;
Sin and death shall not prevail ;
Hosts on high his power proclaim; Heaven, and earth, and all creation,
Laud and magnify his name.
L. M. TASH us from all our sins, O God,
In thy dear Son's atoning blood ; Hear those who come before thy throne, Pleading his merits, his alone. Though we have griev'd thy spirit, Lord, His gracious presence still afford; And still salvation's joys impart, To heal the broken, contrite heart. A broken heart, O God, our King ! Is all the sacrifice we bring : Thou, God of Grace! wilt not despise A broken heart in sacrifice.
P. M. GREAT God; what do I see and hear!
The end of things created ! The judge of mankind doth appear,
On clouds of glory seated. The trumpet sounds! the graves restore The dead, which they contain'd before !
Prepare, my soul, to meet him,
The dead in Christ shall first arise,
At the last trumpet's sounding, Caught up to meet him in the skies,
With joy their Lord surrounding : No gloomy fears their souls dismay; His presence sheds eternal day
On those prepar'd to meet him.
But sinners, fill'd with guilty fears,
Behold his wrath prevailing; For they shall rise, and find their tears
And sighs are unavailing;
All unprepared to meet him.
The end of things created !
On clouds of glory seated :
And thus prepare to meet him.
Hymn 68. P. M. MAY
AY the grace of Christ our Saviour,
And the Father's boundless love, With the holy Spirit's favor
Rest upon us from above ! Thus may we abide in union
With each other and the Lord; And
possess in sweet communion, Joys which earth cannot afford.
Hymn 69. L. M. TO God your voice in anthems raise ;
Jehovah's awful name he bears ; In him rejoice, extol his praise,
Who rides upon the rolling spheres. For benefits each day bestow'd,
Be daily his great name ador'd, Who is our Saviour and our God,
Of life and death the Sovereigo Lord.
Hymn 70. P. M.
Praise to heaven's Eternal King:
grace, To us thy people ; let thy face Beam on us, that thy church may
shine In this dark world, with light divine.
That light divine, Oh, let it spread,
Let them with joy thy praises sing,
Hymn 72. L. M.'
heav'ns rejoice ! From world to world ihe joy shall ring: The Lord omnipotent is King. The Lord is King! who they shall dare Resist his will, distrust bis care ; Alike pervaded by his eye All parts of his dominion lie. The Lord is King! child of the dust, The judge of all the earth is just; Holy and true are all his ways: Let ev'ry creature speak his praise. He reigns! ye saints exalt your strains : Your God is King, your Father reigns; And he is at the Father's side, The Lord of love, the Crucified. Come, make your wants, your burdens known; He will present them at the throne, Nor can his wisdom e'er mistake, His might decay, his love forsake. One Lord, one empire, all secures : He reigns,—and life and death are yours; Through earth and heav'n his saiuts shall sing, The Lord omnipotent is King.
Hymn 73. P. M.
For thy flesh is meat indeed :
