Song of Moses and the Lamb.
AWAKE, and sing the song
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
William Hammond, alt.
Praise and thanksgiving.
CAND up, and bless the Lord,
Stand up, and bless the Lord your God,
2 Though high above all praise,
3 O for the living flame
From his own altar brought,
To touch our lips, our souls inspire,
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 Trinity.
COME, thou almighty King,
Help us thy name to sing,
O'er all victorious,
Come, and reign over us,
2 Come, thou incarnate Word,
Come, and thy people bless,
On us descend!
3 Come, holy Comforter,
Thou who almighty art,
Now rule in every heart,
4 To thee, great One and Three,
Thy sovereign majesty
Love and adore!
Met in His name.
ESUS, we look to thee,
Thy promised presence claim;
2 Thy name salvation is,
Which here we come to prove;
3 Not in the name of pride
Or selfishness we meet;
From nature's paths we turn aside,
4 We meet the grace to take,
5 Present we know thou art,
Now, Lord, let every bounding heart
6 O may thy quickening voice
General invitation to praise God.
Let the Redeemer's name be sung,
Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore,
3 Your lofty themes, ye mortals, bring;
EFORE Jehovah's awful throne, Ye nations bow with sacred joy; Know that the Lord is God alone, He can create, and he destroy.
2 His sovereign power, without our aid,
3 We'll crowd thy gates with thankful songs,
Isaac Watts, alt. by J. Wesley.
HOLY, holy, holy Lord!
Thou God of hosts, by all adored;
The earth and heavens are full of thee,
2 Loud hallelujahs to thy name,
By all the powers and thrones in heaven, Eternal praise to thee is given.
3 Apostles join the glorious throng,
4 Glory to thee, O God most high!
Invitation to worship.-Psalm 100. 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 O 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,
Praise to the Saviour.
JESUS, 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.
