Solemn notes of sweetest sound,
Of covenant mercy I sing,
My person and offerings to bring.
With me can have nothing to do ; My Saviour's obedience and blood
Hide all my transgressions from view. 2 The work which His goodness began,
The arm of His strength will complete : His promise is yea
amen, And never was forfeited yet. Things future, nor things that are near,
Not all things below, or above, Can make Him His purpose forego,
Or sever my soul from His love. 3 My name from the palms of His hands,
Eternity will not erase ; Imprest on His heart it remains,
In marks of indelible grace.
As sure as the earnest is given,
The glorified spirits in heaven.
94. Rev. XIX. 8.
C.M. SAY who are these ! array'd in white,
And whence this shining train ? The conqueror's palm, the robe of light
Their righteousness proclaim. 2 Thou know'st, th' enraptur'd soul replies,
As gazing on the throng, Unnumber'd voices swell the skies
With never-dying song.
Cradled on beds of woe;
A world in arms their foe.
Of garments roll'd in blood,
The bleeding Lamb of God.
Redeem'd his life, and seal'd The record of a deathless name,
That lives in heaven reveal'd. 95.
Loud thanks to our Almighty King; For we our voices high should raise,
When our salvation's Rock we praise. 2 Into His presence let us haste,
To thank Him for His favours past;
3 For God the Lord, enthron'd in state,
Is with unrivall’d glory great ;
Whom gods the heathens falsely call. 4 O let us to His courts repair,
And bow with adoration there ;
In God, our salvation, rejoice;
The ends of the earth are His own. 2 The sea is Jehovah's; He made
The tide its dominion to know :'
The flock whom He guides with His rod. 97.
Where wave resounds to wave:
I know the Lord can save.
2 The hand that now withholds my joys,
Can yet restore my peace;
Can bid the tempest cease.
I'll count His mercies o'er,
And humbly sue for more.)
Nor murmur at His rod;
My health, my life, my God.
O SING aloud, each nation,
A song for ever new!
And praise to Him is due.
In sight of heathen lands,
More countless than the sands ;
Rejoice before the LORD!
Join all in one accord ;
JEHOVAH's power proclaim ;
Adore His holy name!
99. Sabbath Evening Hymn.
10's ERE yet the evening star with silver ray
Sheds its mild lustre on this sacred day; Let us resume with thankful hearts again,
The rites that heav'n and holiness ordain. 2 Still let those precious truths our thoughts
engage, Which shine reveal'd on inspiration's page; Nor those bless'd hours in vanity be pass'd,
Which all, who lavish, will lament at last. 3 O God our Saviour, in our hearts abide; Thy blood redeems us, and Thy precepts
guide: In life our Guardian, and in death our
Friend ; Glory supreme be Thine, till time shall end. 4 And as yon sun descending rolls away,
To rise in glory at return of day;
So rise in glory on the eternal shore. 100.
Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice, Him serve with fear, His praise forth tell ;
Come ye before Him, and rejoice. 2 The Lord, ye know, is God indeed :
Without our aid He did us make ; We are His flock, He doth us feed,
And for His sheep He doth us take.
