S. M.

Song of Moses and the Lamb.

A

Of Moses and the Lamb;
Wake, every heart and every tongue,

To praise the Saviour's name. 2 Sing of his dying love;

Sing of his rising power; Sing how he intercedes above

For those whose sins he bore. 3 Sing on your heavenly way,

Ye ransomed sinners, sing; Sing on, rejoicing every day

In Christ, the eternal King. 4 Soon shall we hear him say,

“Ye blessed children, come!” Soon will he call us hence away,

To our eternal home, 5 There shall each raptured tongue

His endless praise proclaim; And sweeter voices tune the song

Of Moses and the Lamb.

William Hammond, alt.

S. M. Praise and thanksgiving. TAND up, and bless the Lord,

Ye people of his choice; Stand up, and bless the Lord your God,

With heart, and soul, and voice. 2 Though high above all praise,

Above all blessing high,
Who would not fear his holy name,

And laud, and magnify? 3 () for the living flame

From his own altar brought,
To touch our lips, our souls inspire,

And wing to heaven our thought !

James Montgomery.

4 God is our strength and song,

And his salvation ours; Then be his love in Christ proclaimed

With all our ransomed powers. 5 Stand up, and bless the Lord;

The Lord your God adore;
Stand up, and bless his glorious name,

Henceforth, for evermore.

Invocation to the T'rinity.

6,4.
IOME, thou almighty King,
Help us thy name to sing,

Help us to praise :
Father all-glorious,
O'er all victorious,
Come, and reign over us,

Ancient of days!
2 Come, thou incarnate Word,
Gird' on thy mighty sword,

Our prayer attend; Come, and thy people bless, And give thy word success : Spirit of holiness,

On us descend ! 3 Come, holy Comforter, Thy sacred witness bear

In this glad hour: Thou who almighty art, Now rule in every heart, And ne'er from us depart,

Spirit of power! 4 To thee, great One and Three, Eternal praises be

Hence, evermore: Thy sovereign majesty May we in glory see, And to eternity

Love and adore !

Charles Wesley.

JESUS

Met in His name,

S. M.
ESUS, we look to thee,

Thy promised presence claim;
Thou in the midst of us shalt be,

Assembled in thy name.
2 Thy name salvation is,

Which here we come to prove;
Thy name is life, and health, and peace,

And everlasting love.
3 Not in the name of pride

Or selfishness we meet;
From nature's paths we turn aside,

And worldly thoughts forget.
4 We meet the grace to take,

Which thou hast freely given;
We meet on earth for thy dear sake,

That we may meet in heaven.
5 Present we know thou art,

But O thyself reveal!
Now, Lord, let every bounding heart

The mighty comfort feel.
6 O may thy quickening voice

The death of sin remove;
And bid our inmost souls rejoice,

In hope of perfect love.

Charles Wesley.

L. M.
General invitation to praise God.
ROM all that dwell below the skies,

Let the Creator's praise arise;
Let the Redeemer's name be sung,
Through every land, by every tongue.
2 Eternal are thy mercies, Lord;
Eternal truth attends thy word:
Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore,
Till suns shall rise and set no more.

3 Your lofty themes, ye mortals, bring;
In songs of praise divinely sing;
The great salvation loud proclaim,
And shout for joy the Saviour's name.
4 In every land begin the song;
To every land the strains belong :
In cheerful sounds all voices raise,
And fill the world with loudest praise.

Isaac Watts.

Reverential adoration.
EFORE Jehovah's awful throne,

Ye nations bow with sacred
Know that the Lord is God alone,

He can create, and he destroy. 2 His sovereign power, without our aid,

Made us of clay, and formed us men; And when like wandering sheep we strayed,

He brought us to his fold again. 3 We'll crowd thy gates with thankful songs,

High as the heavens our voices raise; And earth, with her ten thousand tongues,

Shall fill thy courts with sounding praise. 4 Wide as the world is thy command;

Vast as eternity thy love;
Firm as a rock thy truth shall stand,

When rolling years shall cease to move.

Isaac Watts, alt. by J. Wesley.

Universal adoration.

L. M.
HOLY, holy, holy Lord !

Thou God of hosts, by all adored;
The earth and heavens are full of thee,
Thy light, thy power, thy majesty.
2 Loud hallelujahs to thy name,
Angels and seraphim proclaim:
By all the powers and thrones in heaven,
Eternal praise to thee is given.

3 Apostles join the glorious throng,
And swell the loud triumphant song:
Prophets and martyrs hear the sound,
And spread the hallelujah round.
4 Glory to thee, O God most high!
Father, we praise thy majesty!
The Son, the Spirit, we adore !
One Godhead, blest for evermore.

Josiah Conder.

Invitation to worship.-Psalm 100.

L. M.
LL people that on earth do dwell,

Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice: Him serve with fear, his praise forth tell, Come

ye

before him, and rejoice. 2 The Lord, ye know, is God indeed,

Without our aid he did us make; We are his flock, he doth us feed,

And for his sheep he doth us take. 3 ( enter then his gates with praise,

Approach with joy his courts unto: Praise, laud, and bless his name always,

For it is seemly so to do.
4 For why? the Lord our God is good,

His mercy is forever sure;
His truth at all times firmly stood,

And shall from age to age endure.

William Kethe.

Praise to the Saviour.

L. M.
ESUS, thou everlasting King,

Accept the tribute which we bring; Accept thy well-deserved renown, And wear our praises as thy crown. 2 Let every act of worship be Like our espousals, Lord, to thee; Like the blest hour, when from above We first received the pledge of love.
