2 Almighty Son! incarnate word !

Our Prophet, Priest, Redeemer, Lord; Before thy throne we sinners bend,

To us thy saving grace extend. 3 Eternal Spirit! by whose breath

The soul is rais'd from sin and death;
Before thy throne we sinners bend;

To us thy quick’ning power extend. 4 Jehovah, Father, Spirit, Son!

Mysterious Godhead, three in one!
Before thy throne we sinners bend;
Grace, pardon, life, to us extend,

Before this raison, whose ]

Isaiah lxiii, 7. (L. M.)
1 AWAKE, my soul, in joyful lays,

And sing thy great Redeemer's praise ;
He justly claims a song from me;

His loving-kindness, O how free! 2 He saw me ruin'd in the fall,

Yet lov'd me notwithstanding all ;
He sav'd me from my lost estate;

His loving-kindness, O how great! 3 Tho' num'rous hosts of mighty foes,

Tho' earth and hell my way oppose,
He safely leads my soul along;
His loving-kindness, O how strong!

4 When I pass through the gloomy vale, When all my mortal powers must fail, O! may my last expiring breath,

His loving-kindness sing in death! 5 Then let me mount and soar away

To the bright world of endless day ;
And sing, with rapture and surprise,
His loving-kindness in the skies.

Isaiah lii, 7. (s. M.)
1 HOW beauteous are their feet

Who stand on Zion's hill!
Who bring salvation on their tongues,

And words of peace reveal ! 2 How happy are our ears

That hear this joyful sound,
Which kings and prophets waited for,

And sought, but never found ! 3 How blessed are our eyes

That see this heav'nly light !
Prophets and kings desired it long,

But died without the sight.
4 The watchmen join their voice,

And tuneful notes employ :
Jerusalem bursts forth in songs,

And deserts learn the joy!

5 The Lord makes bare his arm,

Through all the earth abroad ;
Let every nation, now behold

Their Saviour and their God.

Philippians iii, 3. (7's.)

1 IN thy presence we appear ;

Lord we love to worship here,
When, within the veil, we meet

Thee upon thy mercy seat. 2 Thou, through Christ, art reconcil'd,

Each in him is own'd thy child :
Abba, Father, give us grace

In thy courts to seek thy face.
3 While to thee our prayers ascend,

Let thine ear in love attend;
Hear us, when thy Spirit pleads;

Hear, for Jesus intercedes.
4 While thy word is heard with awe,

And we tremble at thy law,
Let thy gospel's wondrous love,

Ev'ry doubt and fear remove. 5 While thy ministers proclaim

Peace and pardon through thy name,
In their voices let us own,
Jesus speaking from the throne.

6 From thy house when we return,

Let our hearts within us burn;
That, at evening, we may say,
66 We have walked with God to-day.”

Psalm cxlvi, 11. (P. M.)
1 ZION’S king shall reign victorious,

All the earth shall own his sway;
He will make his kingdom glorious ;

He will reign through endless day.
What though none on earth assist him,

God requires not help from man : What though all the world resist him,

God will realize his plan!

2 Nations now from God estranged,

Then shall see a glorious light; Night to day, shall then be changed,

Heav'n shall triumph in the sight. See the ancient idols falling,

Worshipp'd once, but now abhorr'd; Men on Zion's king are calling,

Zion's king by all ador'd. 3 Then shall Israel, long dispersed,

Mourning seek the Lord their God, Look on him, whom once they pierced,

Own and kiss the chast’ning rod.

Then all Isra'l shall be saved,

War and tumult then shall cease,
While the greater son of David,

Rules a conquer'd world in peace. 4 Mighty King, thine arm revealing,

Now thy glorious cause maintain ;
Bring the nations help and healing,

Make them subject to thy reign.
Angels in their lofty station,

Praise thy name, thou only wise,
O let earth, with emulation,

Join the triumph of the skies.

Isaiah xxxii, 15. (c. m.) 1 POUR down thy Spirit, gracious Lord,

On all assembled here;
May we receive th' engrafted word,

With meekness and with fear. 2 Through faith in thee, the soul receives

New life, though dead before ;
And he, who in thy name believes,

Shall live, to die no more.
3 Preserve the power of faith alive

In those who fear thy name;
For sin and Satan daily strive

To quench the sacred flame.
