HYMN 2. C. M.
What endless glory shines !
For these celestial lines.
Exhaustless riches find ;
And lasting as the mind.
And yields a free repast ; Sublimer sweets than nature knows
Invite the longing taste. 4 Here the Redeemer's welcome voice
Spreads heavenly peace around; And life and everlasting joys
Attend the blissful sound.
My ever dear delight;
And still increasing light.
Be thou for ever near ;
HYMN 3. C. M.
New honours be address'd ;
And makes the nations blest.
2 He spake the word to Abr'am first,
His truth fulfils his grace ;
And learn his righteousness.
With all her diff'rent tongues ; And spread the honours of his name, In melody and songs.
HYMN 4. L. M.
First and Second Adam. Rom. v. 14. 1 Cor. xv. 21, 22.
LORD, what was man when made at first,
Adam, the offspring of the dust,
But just below an angel's place!
And inake him Lord of all below;
And lay the fishes at his feet.
To crown the second Adam's state !
Who condescended to be born! 4 See him below his angels made,
See him in dust among the dead,
But He shall reign, with pow'r divine. 5 The world to come, redeem'd from all
The miseries that attend the fall,
HYMN 5. L. M.
Adorn’d with majesty and grace !
And wins the nations to his love.
The queen array'd in purest gold !
Her robe of joy and righteousness.
He calls and seats her near his throne;
The idols of thy native state.
In thee, the fav’rite of his choice ;
For he's thy Maker and thy Lord. 5 O happy hour, when thou shalt rise
To his fair palace in the skies !
Each like a prince in glory reign.
Let every age his praises spread ;
HYMN 6. Eights and Sevens Metre. Consolation of Israel. Isa. xlix. 13. xl. 1.2. Luke ii. 25, 26. COME, thou long expected Jesus,
Born to set thy people free: From our fears and sins release us,
Let us find our rest in Thee.
2 Israel's strength and consolation,
Hope of all the saints thou art ; Dear desire of every nation,
Joy of every longing heart. 3 Born thy people to deliver ;
Born a child, and yet a king : Born to reign in us for ever,
Now thy gracious kingdom bring: 4 By thine own eternal spirit,
Rule in all our hearts alone ; By thine all-sufficient merit, Raise us to thy glorious throne.
HYMN 7. C. M.
Desire of all nations. Hag. ii. 7. Job. xiv. 15. Isa. xxvi. 8.
Thou lovely Prince of Grace;
With never-fading rays.
Come bending at thy feet ;
In Thee their wishes meet.
Delights the church around;
Through all Immanuel's ground. 4 Millions of happy spirits live
On thine exhaustless store ;
And still Thou givest more.
They find their all in Thee :
Through all eternity. RIPPON's Coll.
HYMN 8. L. M.
Universal Praise. Ps. lxvi. 4. Rev. v. 13. FROM all that dwell below the skies
Let the Creator's praise arise : Let the Redeemer's name be sung
Through ev'ry land, by ev'ry tongue. 2 Eternal are thy mercies, Lord;
Eternal truth attends thy word :
HYMN 9. C. M. Fountain opened. Zec. xiii. 1. Psa. xxxvi. 9. Isa, xii. 18. THI NHERE is a fountain fill'd with blood,
Drawn from Immanuel's veins; And sinners plung'd beneath that flood,
Lose all their guilty stains.
That fountain in his day ;
Wash all my sins away!
Shall never lose its power,
Be sav'd, to sin no more.
Thy flowing wounds supply, Redeeining love has been my theme,
And shall be till I die.
Lies silent in the grave,
I'll sing thy pow'r to save.
