HYMN 10. L. M.
Does bis successive journies run ; .
Till moons shall wax aod wane no more. 2 Behold the islands with their kings,
And Europe ber best tribute brings ;
pay their homage at his feet. 3 There Persia, glorious to behold,
There India shines io eastern gold;
Submit, and bow, and own their Lord. 4 For him shall endless pray'r be made,
And praises throng to crown his head;
With ev'ry morning sacrifice.
Dwell on his love with sweetest song :
Their early blessings op his name.
The pris'ner leaps to loose his chains ;
And all the sons of want are blest.
Death and the curse are known no more ;
More blessings than their father lost. 8 Let ev'ry creature rise and bring
Peculiar honours to their King ;
HYMN 11. L. M.
S show'rs on meadows newly mowo,
Jesus shall sbed bis blessings down;
Earth shall renew her blissful crops.
Have long been desolate and dry,
And sudden greens and herbage wear.
Drenching the pastures o'er and o'er,
Which sanctifies and saves our race. 4 As, in soft silence veroal show'rs
Descend, and cheer the fainting flow'rs ;
Falls the sweet influence from above. 5 That heavenly influence let me find
In holy silence of the mind,
Diffusing wide its rich perfume.
To me, but pour'd on all mankind,
young Eden bless our eyes. RIPPON's Coll.
THE Lord on high proclaims
HYMN 12. S. M. Salvation, Righteousness and Strength. Isa. xlix. 6. lix. 16, 17.
His godhead from his throne ;
By which I will be known. 2 “ Ye dying souls, that sit
lo darkness and distress, Look from the borders of the pit
To my recov'ring grace."
3 Sinders shall bear the sound;
Their thankful tongues sball own
In thee, O Lord, alone. 4 Io thee shall Israel trust,
And see their guilt forgiv'o ;
HYMN 13. C. M.
The Saviour promis'd long !
And ev'ry voice a song.
Exerts its sacred fire;
His holy breast inspire.
In satan's bondage held :
The iron fetters .yield.
To clear the mental ray;
To pour celestial day.
The bleeding soul to cure ;
T enrich the humble poor.
Thy welcome shall proclaim ;
HYMN 14. C. M. The Song of Angels. Luke ii. 10, 11, 13, 14. WHILE shepherds watch'd their flocks by night,
All seated on the ground, The angel of the Lord came down,
And glory shone around. 2 “Fear not,” said he, (sor mighty dread
Had seized their troubled mind ;) “Glad tidings of great joy I bring To
you and all mankind.
Is born of David's line,
And this shall be the sign :
To human view display'd
And in a manger laid.”
Appear'd a shining throng
Address'à their joyful song : 6 “All Glory be to God on high,
And to the earth be peace ;
Begin and never cease." Episcopal Psalm.

With healing in its wings.

Pour'd forth their joysul songs ;
To hymn the happy day,
HYMN 16. C. M.
Praise. Ps. xxix. 2. xxiv. 1. lxvii. 5.
OY to the world! the Lord is come;
Let earth receive her King :
Let men their songs employ ;
Repeat the sounding joy.
Nor thorns infest the ground;
Far as the curse is found.
And makes the nations prove The glories of his righteousness, And wonders of his love.
