HYMN 45. C. M. Windsor. [*]
The Last Judgment. Rev. xx, 5, 6, 7, 8.
N Fills a majestic throne;
Bears the last judgment down.
Through endless years the same; 'I AM-is my memorial still,
'And my eternal name. 3 'Such favours as a God can give,
'My royal grace bestows; 'Ye thirsty souls, come taste the streams,
Where life and pleasure flows.) 4 (The saint who triumphs o'er his sins,
I'll own him for a son ; "The whole creation shall reward
“The conquests he has won. 5 'But bloody hands, and hearts unclean,
And all the lying race,• The faithless and the scoffing crew,
“That spurn at offer'd grace ; 6 "They shall be taken from my sight,
'Bound fast in iron chains, ‘And headlong plung?d into the lake,
Where fire and darkness reigns.) ng Oh may I stand before the Lamb,
When earth and seas are fled!
With blessings on my head.
Who here were my delight;
No more offend my sight.]
The Christian Ruce. Isa. xl, 28–31. 1A WAKE, our souls ! (away our fears,
A Let ev'ry trembling thought be gone ;)
0 Awake, and run the heavenly race,
And put a cheerful courage on. e 2 True, 'tis a strait and thorny road,
And mortal spirits tire and faint; -But they forget the mighty God,
Who feeds the strength of ev'ry saint
Is ever new, and ever young;
Their everlasting circles run.
Our souls shall drink a full supply ;
We'll mount aloft to thine abode ;

Works of Moses, and of the Lamb. Rev. xv, 3. 1[TTOW strong thine arm is, mighty God!
1 Who would not fear thy name?
Who would not love the Lamb?]
Our Prophet, and our King:
And taught our lips to sing.
The Egyptian host was drown'd:
And guilt no more is found.
With manna they were fed :
And calls it living bread.
Yet never reach'd the place: o But Christ shall bring his foll’wers home,
To see his Father's face.
His'n! Whebe the lake

And feel a warmer flame;
HYMN 50. C. M. Bethlehem. [*] Song of Zacharias. Luke i, 68, &c. John i, 20, 32. 1 N OW be the God of Israel bless'd,
" Who makes his truth appear; His mighty hand fulfils his word,
And all the oaths he sware. 2 Now he bedews old David's root,
With blessings from the skies: o He makes the Branch of promise grow,
The promis'd Horn arise.
To go before his face ;
Sent to prepare his ways.
He speaks of pardoned sins;
In its own glory shines.
Who takes our guilt away: 'I saw the Spirit o'er his head,
'On his baptizing day.') 0 6 Be ev'ry vale exalted high ;
Sink, ev'ry mountain, low: e The proud must stoop, and humble souls
Shall his salvation know. o The heathen realms, with Israel's land,
Shall join in sweet accord ;
The glory of the Lord.
Ye that in darkness sit: -He marks the path that leads to peace, And guides our doubtful feet. HYMN 51. S. M. Dover. [*]
Preserving Grace. Jude 24, 25. 1 TO God, the only wise,
1 Our Saviour, and our King,
Let all the saints below the skies
Their humble praises bring.
His counsel, and his care
And ev'ry hurtful snare.
Unblemish'd and complete,
With joys divinely great. 04 Then all the chosen seed
Shall meet around the throne;
And make his wonders known. 0 5 To our Redeemer God
Wisdom with power belongs;
And everlasting songs.

Baptism. Matt. xxviii, 19; Acts ii, 38. 1 ' T WAS the commission of our Lord,
1 Go, teach the nations, and baptize: The nations have receiv'd the word, Since he ascended to the skies. 2 He sits upon th’ eternal hills, With grace and pardon in his hands; And sends his cov’nant, with the seals, To bless the distant christian lands. 3 'Repent, and be baptiz'd,' he saith, 'For the remission of your sins; And thus our sense assists our faith, And shews us what his gospel means. 4 Our souls he washes in his blood, As water makes the body clean; And the good Spirit from our God Descends, like purifying rain. 5 Thus we engage ourselves to thee, And seal our cov'nant with the Lord; O may the great Eternal Three In heaven our solemn vows record !

His mind and will to saints of old, Sent his own Son, with truth and grace,
To teach us in these latter days.
That book of life, that sure record;
Is by the sweet conveyance given. e 3 God's kindest thoughts are here exprest,
Able to make us wise and blest;
Fit for reproof and comfort too.

Saints beloved in Christ. Eph. i, 3, &c. 1 TESUS, we bless thy Father's name;
J Thy God and ours is one, the same; What heavenly blessings, from his throne, Flow down to sinners through his Son! 2 Christ be my first Elect,' he said ; Then chose our souls in Christ our Head; Before he gave the mountains birth, Or laid foundations for the earth. 3 Thus did eternal love begin To raise us up from death and sin; Our characters were then decreed, Blameless in love, a holy seed. 4 Predestinated to be sons, Born by degrees, but chose at once ; A new, regenerated race,
To praise the glory of his grace.
