3 “Teach all the nations my commands,
I'm with you till the world shall end;
I can destroy, and I defend.”
Who stand on Zion's hill,
And words of peace reveal!
How sweet the tidings are! “Zion, behold thy Saviour King;
He reigns and triumphs here." 3 How happy are our ears,
That hear the joyful sound,
And sought, but never found ! 4 How blessed are our eyes,
That see this heavenly light! Prophets and kings desired it long,
But died without the sight. 5 The watchmen join their voice,
And tuneful notes employ; Jerusalem breaks forth in songs,
And deserts learn the joy. 6 The Lord makes bare his arm
Through all the earth abroad; Let every nation now behold
Their Saviour and their God.
In hell, or earth, or sky;
And devils fear and fly. 2 Jesus! the name to sinners dear,
The name to sinners given;
It scatters all their guilty fear;
It turns their hell to heaven. 3 Jesus the prisoner's fetters breaks,
And bruises Satan's head; Power into strengthless souls he speaks,
And life into the dead. 4 0 that the world might taste and see
The riches of his grace !
Would all mankind embrace.
His saving truth proclaim: 'Tis all my business here below, To
cry, “ Behold the Lamb!”
Behold, behold the Lamb!”
And take the alarm they give;
Their solemn charge receive.
The pastor's care demands;
And filled a Saviour's hands. 3 They watch for souls for which the Lord
Did heavenly bliss forego;
In raptures or in woe. 4 May they that Jesus, whom they preach,
Their own Redeemer see;
That they may watch for thee.
And let it swiftly run;
And put salvation on.
Illustrious as the sun; And, bright with borrowed rays divine,
Their glorious circuit run. 3 As giants may they run their race,
Exulting in their might; As burning luminaries, chase
The gloom of hellish night. 4 As the bright Sun of righteousness,
Their healing wings display; And let their luster still increase
Unto the perfect day. 825 Training the soldiers of Christ.
L. M. 61
These heirs of immortality;
Preserve them for thy glorious cause,
The welcome burden of thy cross;
In all their Captain's steps to tread;
Thy gospel through the world to spread; Freely as they receive to give, And preach the death by which we live.
826 Baptismal hymn.
L. M. 61. AM baptized into thy name,
Among thy seed a place I claim,
Among thy consecrated host;
Proclaim me as thy child and heir; Thou, faithful Saviour, bidel'st me now
The fruit of all thy sorrows share; Thou, Holy Ghost, wilt comfort me When darkest clouds around I see. 3 Ilence, Prince of darkness! hence, my
foe! Another Lord hath purchased me; My conscience tells of sin, yet know,
Baptized in Christ, I fear not thee: Away, vain world! sin, leave me now! I turn from you; God hears my vow. 4. And never let me waver more,
O Father, Son, and Holy Ghost;
Still keep me in thy faithful host,
J. J. Rambach. Tr. by Miss C. Winkworth.
With all-engaging charms;
And folds them in his arrus!
2. “Permit them to approach,” he cries,
“ Nor scorn their humble name; For 'twas to bless such souls as these
The Lord of angels came.” 3 We bring them, Lord, in thankful hands,
And yield them up to thee; Joyful that we ourselves are thine,
Thine let our offspring be.
BEJesus on earth displays !
To little children he extends
The riches of his grace. .
To our forefathers given;
And calls them heirs of heaven.
Nor dare the claim resist, Since his own lips to us declare
Of such will heaven consist. 4 With flowing tears, and thankful hearts,
We give them up to thee;
Thine may they ever be.
John Peacock, Augustus M. Toplady.
Of this the outward seal,
To every heart reveal.
Death to each fleshly lust; Newness of life our calling now,
A risen Lord our trust.
