1 COME, let us join our cheerful songs

With angels round the throne;
Ten thousand thousand are their tongues,

But all their joys are one. 2 “ Worthy the Lamb that died,” they cry,

- To be exalted thus ;" “ Worthy the Lamb,” our lips reply,

“ For He was slain for us.” 3 Jesus is worthy to receive

Honour and power divine;
And blessing, more than we can give,

Be, Lord, for ever Thine.

4 Let all that dwell above the sky,

And air, and earth, and seas,
Conspire to lift Thy glories high,

And speak Thine endless praise. 5 The whole creation join in one,

To bless the sacred name
Of Him that sits upon the throne,

And to adore the Lamb.

THE SONG OF FAITH. 1 GUIDE us, O thou great Jehovah,

Pilgrims through this barren land; We are weak, but Thou art mighty, Hold us with Thy powerful hand :

Bread of heaven,
Feed us till we want no more.
2 Open Thou the crystal fountain

Whence the healing streams do flow;
Let the fiery cloudy pillar
Lead us all our journey through;

Strong Deliverer, Be Thou still our strength and shield. 3 When we tread the verge of Jordan,

Bid our anxious fears subside:
Through the dark and swelling waters,
Bear us safe to Canaan's side ;

Songs of praises
We will ever give to Thee.

PRAYER FOR FAITH. 1 FATHER, whate'er of earthly bliss

Thy sovereign will denies, Accepted at Thy throne of grace,

Let this petition rise:

2 Give me a calm, a thankful heart,

From every murmur free;
The blessings of Thy grace impart,

And make me live to Thee. 3 Let the sweet hope that Thou art mine

My life and death attend,
Thy presence through my journey shine,

And crown my journey's end.

THE JUDGMENT DAY. 1 The Lord will come, the earth shall quake,

The hills their fixed seats forsake;
And, withering from the vault of night,

The stars withdraw their feeble light.
2 The Lord will come, but not the same

As once in lowly form He came;
A silent lamb, to slaughter led,

The bruised, the suff'ring, and the dead. 3 The Lord will come, a dreadful form,

With wreath of flame, and robe of storm ; On cherub wings, and wings of wind,

Anointed Judge of human kind.
4 Can this be He who wont to stray

A pilgrim on the world's highway,
Oppress'd by power, and mock'd by pride,
The Nazarene, the crucified ?

5 Go, sinners, to the rocks complain,

Go seek the mountain's cleft in vain,
But Faith, victorious o'er the tomb,
Shall sing for joy, “ The Lord is come !"

1 WHENE'ER I take my walks abroad,

How many poor I see!
What shall I render to my God,

For all His gifts to me?
2 Not more than others I deserve,

Yet God hath given me more;
For I have food, while others starve,

And beg from door to door.
3 While some poor children scarce can tell

Where they may lay their head,
I have a home wherein to dwell,

And rest upon my bed.
4 While others early learn to swear,

And curse, and lie, and steal;
Lord, I am taught Thy name to fear,

And do Thy holy will.
5 Are these Thy favours, day by day,

To me above the rest ?
Then let me love Thee more than they,

And try to serve Thee best.

1 From 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.

1 LORD, a little band and lowly,

We are come to sing to Thee;
Thou art great, and high, and holy,

Oh! how solemn we should be ! 2 Fill our hearts with thoughts of Jesus,

And of heaven where He is gone;
And let nothing ever please us

He would grieve to look upon. 3 For we know the Lord of glory

Always sees what children do,
And is writing now the story

Of our thoughts and actions too. 4 Let our sins be all forgiven ;

Make us fear whate'er is wrong ;
Lead us on our way to heaven,

There to sing a nobler song.
