HYMN 211. L. M. [#]

Universal Triumph of Christ.

1 JESUS shall reign where'er the sun
Does his successive journeys run;
His kingdom stretch from shore to shore,
Till moons shall wax and wane no more.

2 For this shall constant prayer be made, And praises throng to crown his head: His name like sweet perfume shall rise With every morning sacrifice.

3 People and realms of every tongue
Dwell on his love with sweetest song;
And infant voices shall proclaim
Their early blessings on his name.
4 Blessings abound where'er he reigns;
The prisoner leaps to loose his chains;
The weary find eternal rest,

And all the sons of want are blest.

5 Where he displays his healing power
Death and the curse are known no more:
In him the tribes of Adam boast
More blessings than their father lost.

6 Let every creature rise and bring
Peculiar honours to their King,
Angels descend with songs again,
And earth repeat the long Amen.

HYMN 212. 7s. M. [#]
Christ's Triumph.

1 HARK! the song of jubilee,
Loud as mighty thunders roar,
Or the fulness of the sea,
When it breaks upon the shore;-
Hallelujah to the Lord!

God omnipotent shall reign;
Hallelujah! let the word

Echo round the earth and main.

2 Hallelujah!-hark! the sound,

Heard through earth, and through the skies, Wakes above, beneath, around,

All creation's harmonies : See Jehovah's banner furled,

Sheathed his sword; he speaks,—'tis done! And the kingdoms of this world Are the kingdoms of his Son.

3 He shall reign from pole to pole With illimitable sway;

He shall reign when, like a scroll,
Yonder heavens are passed away :
Then the end ;-beneath his rod
Man's last enemy shall fall :
Hallelujah! Christ in God,

God in Christ, is all in all.

Coronation of Christ.

1 ALL hail the power of Jesus' name!
Let angels prostrate fall :

Bring forth the royal diadem,
And own him Lord of all.

2 Ye wandering seed of Israel's race,
A remnant weak and small,

Praise him who saves you by his grace,
And own him Lord of all.

3 Ye Gentile sinners, ne'er forget
The wormwood and the gall;
Go, spread your trophies at his feet,
And own him Lord of all.

4 Babes, men, and sires, who know his love, Who feel your sin and thrall,

Now join with all the hosts above,
And own him Lord of all.

5 And when with yonder sacred throng
We at his feet shall fall,
We'll chant the everlasting song,
And own him Lord of all.

Ascriptions to Christ.

1 Lo, what enraptured songs of praise

Resound through heaven to Christ the Lamb! Adoring angels on him gaze,

And swell the golden trump of fame. 2 Amid his smiles and glories bright Transported millions round him bend, And, robed in life's primeval light,

The honours of his cross extend.

3 Salvation to the Lamb, they cry,

That sits upon the shining throne, Who once for sinful men did die,

That he might seek and bring them home.

4 Hosanna! all have joined the song,

In heaven, in earth, and in the seas; Salvation sounds from every tongue

In swelling notes of ceaseless praise.

HYMN 215. C. M. [#]

Redeemer's Praise.

1 O, FOR a thousand tongues, to sing
My dear Redeemer's praise,
The glories of my Lord and King,
The triumphs of his grace!

2 Jesus, the name that charms our fears,
That bids our sorrows cease,-
"Tis music in the sinner's ears,

'Tis life, and health, and peace.

3 He speaks, and, listening to his voice,
New life the dead receive;
The mournful, broken hearts rejoice,
The humble poor believe.

4 Hear him, ye deaf: his praise, ye dumb,
Your loosened tongues employ :
Ye blind, behold your Saviour come,
And leap, ye lame, for joy.

HYMN 216. P. M. [#]
Jesus our King.

1 YE servants of Christ,
Your Master proclaim,
And publish abroad

His wonderful name:
The name all-victorious
Of Jesus extol ;
His kingdom is glorious,
And rules over all.

[blocks in formation]

3 Then let us adore,

And give him his right,
All glory and power,
And wisdom and might;
