HYMN 45. C. M. Windsor. [*]

The Last Judgment. Rev. xx, 5, 6, 7, 8.
1[CEE where the great incarnate God

N Fills a majestic throne;
While, from the skies, his awful voice

Bears the last judgment down.
2 (“I am the First,-and I the Last —

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!
And hear the Judge pronounce my name,

With blessings on my head.
8 May I with those for ever dwell,

Who here were my delight;
While sinners, banish'd down to hell,

No more offend my sight.]

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
g 3 The mighty God, whose matchless power

Is ever new, and ever young;
And firm endures, while endless years

Their everlasting circles run.
04 From thee, the overflowing spring,

Our souls shall drink a full supply ;
e While such as trust their native strength,
a Shall melt away, and droop, and die.
o 5 Swift as an eagle cuts the air,

We'll mount aloft to thine abode ;
On wings of love our souls shall fly,
Nor tire amidst the heavenly road.

HYMN 49. C. M. Arundel. [*]

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?
Jesus, how sweet thy graces are !

Who would not love the Lamb?]
2 Christ has done more than Moses did,

Our Prophet, and our King:
From bonds of hell he freed our souls,

And taught our lips to sing.
3 In the Red Sea, by Moses' hand,

The Egyptian host was drown'd:
But his own blood hides all our sins,

And guilt no more is found.
4 When through the desert Isracl went,

With manna they were fed :
Our Lord invites us to his flesh,

And calls it living bread.
e 5 Moses beheld the promis'd land,

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

s 6 Then shall our love and joy be full,

And feel a warmer flame;
And sweeter voices tune the song
Of Moses and the Lamb.

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.
3 [John was the prophet of the Lord,

To go before his face ;
The herald, whom our Saviour God

Sent to prepare his ways.
4 He makes the great salvation known,

He speaks of pardoned sins;
While grace divine, and heavenly love,

In its own glory shines.
5 'Behold the Lamb of God,' he cries,

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 ;
And all that's born of man shall see

The glory of the Lord.
08 Behold the morning Star arise,

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.
2 'Tis his almighty love,

His counsel, and his care
Preserves us safe from sin and death,
Prachocolate from dinand death

And ev'ry hurtful snare.
3 He will present our souls,

Unblemish'd and complete,
Before the glory of his face,

With joys divinely great. 04 Then all the chosen seed

Shall meet around the throne;
Shall bless the conduct of his grace,

And make his wonders known. 0 5 To our Redeemer God

Wisdom with power belongs;
Immortal crowns of majesty,

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 !

HYMN 53. L. M. Green's. [*] The Holy Scriptures. Heb.i, 1. 2 Tim. iii, 15, 16. Ps.cxlvii, 19, 20. 1[MOD, who in various methods told

His mind and will to saints of old, Sent his own Son, with truth and grace,

To teach us in these latter days.
0 2 Our nation reads the written word,

That book of life, that sure record;
The bright inheritance of heaven

Is by the sweet conveyance given. e 3 God's kindest thoughts are here exprest,

Able to make us wise and blest;
The doctrines are divinely true,

Fit for reproof and comfort too.

In long epistles from above,

HYMN 54. L. M. Quercy. Leeds. [*]

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.
0 5 With Christ, our Lord, we share a part

In the affections of his heart;
Nor shall our souls be thence remov'd,
Till he forgets his First Belov'd.
