Our conscience in the Holy Ghost,

Can witness better things :
For He whose blood is all our boast,

Hath made us priests and kings. 5 Riches unsearchable

In Jesu's love we know,
And pleasures from the well

Of life our souls o'erflow;
From him the Spirit we recewe

Of wisdom, grace, and power,
And always sorrowful we live,

Rejoicing evermore.
6 Angels our servants are,

And keep in all our ways,
And in their hands they bear

The sacred sons of grace;
Dur guardians to that heavenly bliss,

They all our steps attend;
And God himself our Father is,

And Jesus is our Friend,
7 With him we walk in white,

We in his image shine,
Our robes are robes of light,

Our righteousness divine:
On all the grov’ling kings of earth,

With pity we look down,
And claim, in virtue of our birth,

A never-fading crown.

Mystery.] HYMN 279.7's & 6's.

FT I in my heart have said,


Mount to Christ, my glorious head,

And bring him from the sky;
Borne on contemplation's wing,

Surely I shall find him there

[ocr errors]

Where the angels praise their King,

And gain the morning-star. 2 Oft I in my heart have said,

Who to the deep shall stoop? Sink with Christ among the dead,

From thence to bring him up?
Could I but my heart prepare

By unfeign'd humility,
Christ would quickly enter there,

And ever dwell in me.
3 But the righteousness of faith

Hath taught me better things ; "Inward turn thine eyes,” it saith,

While Christ to me it brings, 66 Christ is ready to impart

Life to all for life who sigh :
In thy mouth, and in thy heart

The word is ever nigh.”
Gospel Trumpet.] HYMN 280. P. M.

ARK! how the Gospel trumpet sounds,

Through all the world the echo bounds! And Jesus, by redeeming blood, Is bringing sinners back to God': And guides them safely by his word

To endless day.
2 Hail! all-victorious, conqu’ring Lord !

Be thou by all thy works ador'd,
Who undertook for sinful man,
And brought salvation through thy name,
That we with thee may ever reign

In endless day.
3 Fight on, ye conqu’ring souls, fight on,

And when the conquest you have won,
Then palms of victory you shall bear,
And in his kingdom have a share,



And crowns of glory ever wear

In endless day.
4 There we shall in full chorus join,

With saints and angels all combine,
To sing of his redeeming love,
When rolling years shall cease to move,
And this shall be our theme above

In endless day.


Millicent.] HYMN 281. 8's & 7's. 1

Hail, thou everlasting King, Thou didst suffer to redeem us!

Thou didst free salvation bring. Hail, thou agonizing Saviour,

Bearer of our sin and shame! By thy merits we find favour:

Life is given through thy name. 2 Paschal Lamb, by God appointed,

All our sins on thee were laid :
By almighty love anointed,

Thou hast full atonement made :
All thy people are forgiven

Through the virtue of thy blood;
Open'd is the gate of heaven;

Peace is made 'twixt man and God. 3 Jesus, hail! enthron’d in glory,

There for ever to abide!
All the heavenly hosts adore thee,

Seated at thy Father's side :
There for sinners thou art pleading,

There thou dost our place prepare :
Ever for us interceding,

Till in glory we appear. 4 Worship, honour, power and blessing,

Thou art worthy to receive;

10 ,

Loudest praises without ceasing,

Meet it is for us to give;
Help, ye bright angelic spirits,

Bring your sweetest, noblest lays ;
Help to sing our Saviour's merits ;

Help to chaunt Immanuel's praise. Harmony.) HYMN 282. 10's & 11's. 1

WHAT shall I do my Saviour to praise,

grace! So strong to deliver, so good to redeem, The weakest believer that hangs upon him. 2 How happy the man whose heart is set free, The people that can be joyful in thee; Their joy is to walk in the light of thy face, And still they are talking of Jesus's grace. 3 Their daily delight shall be in thy name, They shall as their right thy righteousness

claim; Thy righteousness wearing, and cleans’d by

thy blood, Bold shall they appear in the presence of God. 4 For thou art their boast, their glory, and

power, And I also trust to see the glad hour, My soul's new creation, a life from the dead, The day of salvation that lifts up my head. 5 For Jesus my Lord is now my defence ; I trust in his word, none plucks me from thence; Since I have found favour he all things will dw; My King and my Saviour shall make me anew. 6 Yes, Lord, I shall see the bliss of thine own; Thy secret to me shall soon be made known; For sorrow and sadness I joy shall receive, And share in the gladness of all that belieye.

Berlin.) HYMN 283. L. M.
NTO thy gracious hands I fall,



O King of Glory, hear my call !

O raise me, heal me by thy grace ! Now righteous through thy grace I am:

No condemnation now I dread;
I taste salvation in thy name;

Alive in thee, my living Head. 2 Still let thy wisdom be my guide,

Nor take thy flight from me away; Still with me let thy grace abide,

That I from theè may never stray: Let thy word richly in me dwell;

Thy peace and love my portion be: My joy t' endure and do thy will,

Till perfect I am found in thee. 3 Arm me with thy whole armour, Lord !

Support my weakness with thy might; Gird on my thigh thy conqu’ring sword,

And shield me in the threat’ning fight : From faith to faith, from grace to grace,

So thy strength shall I go on; Till heaven and earth flee from thy face,

And glory end what grace begun. Nazareth.] HYMN 284. L. M. THE day of Christ, the day of God,

We humbly hope, with joy to see, Wash'd in the sanctifying blood

Of an expiring Deity. 2 Who did for us his life resign:

There is no other God but One: For all the plenitude divine

Resides in the eternal Son.
