Display thy glorious banner bigh; The summons send from coast to coast,
And call a num'rous army nigh, A solemn jubilee proclaim,
Proclaim the great sabbatic day; Assert the glories of thy name,
Spoil Satan of his wish'd-for prey. Bid, bid thy heralds publish loud
The peaceful blessings of thy reign; And when they speak of sprinkling blood,
Thy myst’ry to the heart explain. Fight for thyself, O Jesus, fight,
The travail of thy soul regain ; Before the blind make darkness light,
And crooked paths do thou make plain. 201. The Excellency of Scripture. FATHER of mercies, in thy word

Such heav'nly wonders tell.
And take a fresh delight,
And meditate by night.
204. God's Covenant unchangeable.
205. Sin and Grace. Our father ate forbidden fruit,
And from his glory fell;
To death, and near to hell.

To take our flesh and blood:
To make our peace with God.
