e Oh when shall my spirit exchange
This cell of corruptible clay,
And mix with the triumphant crowd. e Oh when wilt thou bid me ascend,
To join in thy praises above-
Nor sin, nor temptation, nor fear,
Shall ever molest me again,o Perfection of glory reigns there. -This soul and this body shall shine, In robes of salvation and praise ; And banquet on pleasures divine,
Where God his full beauty displays. d 6 Ye palaces, sceptres, and crowns,
Your pride with disdain I survey;
And pass in a moment away :
Yon permanent sun shall outshine ; g My joy everlastingly flowsMy God, my Redeemer, is mine. Francis. HYMN 102. 5 & 6. Newcastle. [*]
Praise for Saldation.
The Lord let us bless,
The Prince of our peace;
By shedding his blood: o All hail, holy Jesus,
Our Lord and our God!
re wover hide
Thy kindness for ever
To men we will tell;
Redeem'd us from hell.
Thy presence, nor hide
Till each of us see,
Completed in thee!
Song of Moses and the Lamb. Rev. xv, 3.
- Of Moses and the Lamb;
To praise the Saviour's name. e 2 Sing of his dying love;
Sing of his rising power ; --Sing how he intercedes above
For those whose sins he bore. -3 Sing, till we feel our heart
Ascending with our tongue; Sing, till the love of sin depart,
And grace inspires our song. 04 Sing on your heavenly way,
Ye ransom'd sinners, sing; u Sing on, rejoicing ev'ry day,
In Christ, th' eternal King. e 5 Soon shall we hear him say, d 'Ye blessed children, come;' -Soon will he call us hence away,
And take his wand'rers home. 06 Soon shall our raptur'd tongue
His endless praise proclaim ; g And sweeter voices tune the song
Of Moses and the Lamb. Hammond.
The Christian's Song.
& Holy, holy, holy Lord,
Be thy glorious Name adar'd! -2 Men on earth, and saints above,
Sing the great Redeemer's love :
Lord, thy mercies never fail; o Hail, Celestial Goodness, hail! e 3 Though unworthy, Lord, thine ear -Can our humble praises hear; o Purer praise we hope to bring,
When with saints we stand and sing. -4 Lead us to that blissful state,
Where thou reign'st supremely great : e Look with pity from thy throne;
Send the Holy Spirit down. -5 While on earth ordain'd to stay, Guide our footsteps in thy way; Till we come to reign with thee, And thy glorious greatness see. 0 6 Then with angels we'll again u Wake a louder, louder strain ; s There in joyful songs of praise,
We'll our grateful voices raise. - There no tongue shall silent be,
All shall jain sweet harmony;
Praise to God may ever sound.
HYMN 105. L. M. Oporto. [*]
Dignity, and Happiness of the Christian. 1 HTONOUR and happiness unite,
I To make the Christian's name a praise: How fair the scene, how clear the light, That fills the remnant of his days ! 2 A kingly character he bears ; No change his priestly office knows; Unfading is the crown he wears; His joys can never reach a close. 3 Adorn'd with glory from on high, Salvation shines upon his face ;
His robe is of th' ethereal dye,
