GLORY TO THE LAMB.
1 COME, let us join our cheerful songs
With angels round the throne;
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;
Be, Lord, for ever Thine.
4 Let all that dwell above the sky,
And air, and earth, and seas,
And speak Thine endless praise. 5 The whole creation join in one,
To bless the sacred name
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,
Whence the healing streams do flow;
Strong Deliverer, Be Thou still our strength and shield. 3 When we tread the verge of Jordan,
Bid our anxious fears subside:
Songs of praises
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;
And make me live to Thee. 3 Let the sweet hope that Thou art mine
My life and death attend,
And crown my journey's end.
THE JUDGMENT DAY. 1 The Lord will come, the earth shall quake,
The hills their fixed seats forsake;
The stars withdraw their feeble light.
As once in lowly form He came;
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.
A pilgrim on the world's highway,
5 Go, sinners, to the rocks complain,
Go seek the mountain's cleft in vain,
THANKSGIVING FOR MERCIES.
How many poor I see!
For all His gifts to me?
Yet God hath given me more;
And beg from door to door.
Where they may lay their head,
And rest upon my bed.
And curse, and lie, and steal;
And do Thy holy will.
To me above the rest ?
And try to serve Thee best.
PRAISE THE LORD.
Let the Creator's praise arise ;
Through every land, by every tongue. 2 Eternal are Thy mercies, Lord,
Eternal truth attends Thy word;
We are come to sing to Thee;
Oh! how solemn we should be ! 2 Fill our hearts with thoughts of Jesus,
And of heaven where He is gone;
He would grieve to look upon. 3 For we know the Lord of glory
Always sees what children do,
Of our thoughts and actions too. 4 Let our sins be all forgiven ;
Make us fear whate'er is wrong ;
There to sing a nobler song.
