Constant let our praises rise,
568. 8s. Truro Friend. God is my Salvation.... Jonah ii. 9. 1 ALVATION, how precious the sound,
To sinners who see themselves lost; To Jesus their praises redound,
In Jesus they triumph and boast. 2 Salvation is finish'd and done,
Salvation is sov'reign and free;
My joy and rejoicing shall be. 3 Salvation is only of God,
To him all the praises are due ;
Who finish'd salvation for you.
Forever to sound his dear name;
569. 8. 7. 4. Radford's Col.
Free Saluation....2 Tim. i. 9. 1 (ESUS is our great Salvation,
Worthy of our best esteem !
Join to sing aloud to him:
Christ alone could us redeem. 2 When involv'd in sin and ruin,
And no helper there was found;
Grace did more than sin abound:
With salvation in the sound.
Is a privilege divine :
Saints are kept from final falling,
All the glory, Lord, be thine ;
570. 10s. Pope.
Saviour.... Isaiah xi. 10.
The sick and weak the healing plant shall aid,
From storms a shelter, and from heat a shade. 2 The Saviour comes! by prophecies foretold,
Hear him, ye deaf! and all ye blind behold!
From ev'ry eye he wipes off ev'ry tear.
“ Prepare a way-a God, a God appears : “ A God, a God," the vocal hills reply
The rocks proclaim tho approaching Deity: 4 All crimes shall cease, and ancient fraud shall fail,
Unerring justice lifts aloft her scale :
And white-rob'd innocence from heay'n descends. 5 Rise, crown'd with light, imperial Salem, rise,
Exalt thy tow'ring head, and lift thine eyes:
571. 8. 3. Kelly.
My Saviour..... Sam. xxii. 3.
But nought attractive then could see,
How I had sold myself for nought;
3 When self-accus'd, I trembling stood,
I promis'd fair as any could;
That sinners make, while sin is lov'd,
Thou didst redeem my soul with blood, And thou hast brought me nigh to God,
My Saviour. 6 Thro' storms and waves of conflict past,
Thy potent arm has held me fast;
And I have gain'd the heav'nly shore;
572. C. M. Addisor. Preservation by Sea....Psalm cxxi. 8.
OW are thy servants blest, O Lord!
How sure is their defence;
Their help, Omnipotence.
Supported by thy care,
And breath'd in tainted air.]
High on the broken wave,
Nor impotent to save. 4 The storms were laid, the winds retir'd,
Obedient to thy will i
The sea, that roar'd at thy command,
At thy command was still,
Thy goodness I'll adore ;
And humbly hope for more.
Thy sacrifice shall be ;
573. L. M. H.
! Thy bounty crowns our passing years,
And dissipates our anxious fears.
While sun, and moon, and earth shall last;
'Till time and stars are known no more.
And night and day in order meet;
To prove thy love-supply our need.
We still shall prove thy cov'nant sure ;
574. L. M. Steele. On the four Seasons of the Year....Psalm cxlvii. 1 RAISE ye the Lord-O blissful theme,
To sing the honors of his name!
And praise is lovely in his sight.
On earth the plent'ous blessing pours ;
The mountains smile in lively green,
And fairer blooms the flow'ry scene.
To earth the sov'reign mandate flies;
And bows obedient to her Lord.
O'er earth a fleecy mantle throw ;
Extends its universal chains.]
The shir’ring pow’rs of nature fail ;
Unshelter'd by his guardian hand! 6 He speaks! the ice and snow obey,
And nature's fetters melt away ;
And murm'ring waters gently flow. 7 But nobler works his grace record,
To Israel's sons he sends his word ;
575. C. M. Dobell. Prayer for warmth after nipping Winds and much
Rain.... Job. xxxvi. 32.
And stretch the boundless skies,
When doubts and darkness rise.
Which pour'd their torrents down ;
Which overflow'd the ground:
And hide the sun from sight;
