2 The Father's love shall run
Through our immortal songs;
We bring to God the Son
Hosannas on our tongues:
Our lips address
The Spirit's name

With equal praise,

And zeal the same.

3 Let ev'ry saint above,
And angels round the throne,
Forever bless and love

The sacred Three in One.
Thus heav'n shall raise

His honours high,

When earth and time
Grow old and die.]

HYMN 40. H. M.

TO God the Father's throne

Perpetual honours raise ;

Glory to God the Son,
To God the Spirit praise;

And while our lips

Their tribute bring,

Our faith adores
The name we sing.


O our eternal God,
The Father, and the Son,


And Spirit all divine,

Salvation, pow'r,

And praise be given,


Three mysteries in one,

By all on earth,

And all in heaven.]


or, Salvation ascribed to CHRIST.

HYMN 42. L. M.

'H Who reigns on a superior throne:

OSANNA to King David's Son,

We bless the Prince of heav'nly birth,
Who brings salvation down to earth.
2 Let ev'ry nation, ev'ry age,
In this delightful work engage;
Old men and babes in Zion sing,
The growing glories of her King.



HYMN 43. C. M.

TOSANNA to the Prince of Grace:
Zion, behold thy King;
Proclaim the Son of David's race,
And teach the babes to sing.
2 Hosanna to th' incarnate Word,
Who from the Father came;
Ascribe salvation to the Lord,
With blessings on his Name.


HYMN 44. S. M.

TOSANNA to the Son

Of David, and of God;

Who brought the news of pardon down
And bought it with his blood.

2 To Christ, th' Anointed King,
Be endless blessings giv'n;
Let the whole earth his glory sing,
Who made our peace with Heav'n.


HYMN 45. H. M.

HOSANNA to the King,

Of David's ancient blood;

Behold he comes to bring
Forgiving grace from God:
Let old and young
Attend his way,

And at his feet
Their honours lay.

2 Glory to God on high;
Salvation to the Lamb;
Let earth, and sea, and sky,
His wondrous love proclaim:

Upon his head

Shall honours rest,

And ev'ry age

Pronounce him bless'd.





HYMN 1. L. M.

Old Hundred. [*]

Being of God. Ps. civ.

HERE is a God-all nature speaks,

11 Through earth, and air, and sea, and skies;

See, from the clouds his glory breaks, When the first beams of morning rise. -2 The rising sun serenely bright, O'er the wide world's extended frame, Inscribes in characters of light, His mighty Maker's glorious name. o 3 The flow'ry tribes all blooming rise, Above the weak attempts of art; e The smallest worms, the meanest flies, Speak sweet conviction to the heart. -4 Ye curious minds, who roam abroad, And trace creation's wonders o'er,

e Confess the footsteps of the God;a Bow down before him-and adore.



HYMN 2. C. M. Tunbridge. [b*]
Goodness of God. Nahum i, 7.
E humble souls, approach your God,
Ywith songs of sacred praise;

For he is good, immensely good,

And kind are all his ways.

2 All nature owns his guardian care, In him we live and move;

• But nobler benefits declare

The wonders of his love.

e 3 He gave his Son, his only Son, To ransom rebel worms;

'Tis here he makes his goodness known, In its divinest forms.

e 4 To this dear refuge, Lord, we come; 'Tis here our hope relies :

• A safe defence, a peaceful home,

When storms of trouble rise.

-5 Thine eye beholds, with kind regard,

The souls who trust in thee;
Their humble hope thou wilt reward,
With bliss divinely free.

o 6 Great God, to thy almighty Love,
What honours shall we raise?

Not all the raptur'd songs above.
Can render equal praise.

HYMN 3. C. M.


Mitcham. Arundel. [*]

God the Creator.

1 ETERNAL Wisdom, thee we praise,

Thee the creation sings;

With thy lov'd name, rocks, hills, and seas,
And heav'n's high palace rings.

g 2 Thy hand,—how wide it spread the sky!
How glorious to behold!

-Ting'd with a blue of heav'nly die,
And starr'd with sparkling gold.

3 Thy glories blaze all nature round,
And strike the gazing sight,

Thro' skies, and seas, and solid ground,
With terrour and delight.

g 4 Infinite strength, and equal skill,
Shine through the worlds abroad;
e Our souls with vast amazement fill,
And speak the builder-God.

-5 But still the wonders of thy grace Our softer passions move;


Pity divine in Jesus' face,
We see, adore, and love.

HYMN 4. C. M. Bedford. [*]
Sovereignty and Dominion of God.
EEP silence-all created things,
And wait your Maker's noȧ;


My soul stands trembling while she sings
The honours of her God.


e 2 Life, death, and hell, and worlds unknown, Hang on his firm decree;

He sits on no precarious throne,

Nor borrows leave-TO BE.

3 Chain'd to his throne a volume lies,

With all the fates of men;

With ev'ry angel's form and size,
Drawn by th' eternal pen.

- His providence unfolds the book,
And makes his counsels shine;
Each opening leaf, and ev'ry stroke,
Fulfils some deep design.

5 (Here he exalts neglected worms,
To sceptres and a crown;

And there, the following page he turns,
And treads the monarch down.

6 Not Gabriel asks the reason why,
Nor God the reason gives;

Nor dares the favourite angel pry,
Between the folded leaves.)

e7 My God, I would not long to see
My fate, with curious eyes;
What gloomy lines are writ for me,
Or what bright scenes may rise.

-8 In thy fair book of life and grace,
O may I find my name,

Recorded in some humble place,
Beneath my Lord-the Lamb.


HYMN 5. L. P. M. St. Hellen's. [*]
GOD's Name proclaimed. Ex. xxxiv, 6—8.

1 ATTEND, my soul, the voice divine

[ocr errors]

And mark what beaming glories shine,

Around thy condescending God! To us-to us, he still proclaims, e His awful, his endearing names;

[ocr errors]

Attend, and sound them all abroad. d 2" Jehovah I, the sovereign Lord,

"The mighty God, by heav'n ador'd, "Down to the earth my footsteps bend: e "My heart the tenderest pity knows, "Goodness, full-streaming wide o'erflows

"And grace and truth shall never end. 3 "My patience long can crimes endure, "My pard'ning love is ever sure,

"When penitential sorrow mourns; "To millions, thro' unnumber'd years, "New hope and new delight it bears;

"Yet wrath against the sinner burns."
