2 Pascal Lamb by God appointed,

All our fins were on thee laid !
By almighty love anointed,

Thou hast full atonement made ;
Ev'ry sin may be forgiv'n,

Thro' the virtue of thy blood; Open'd is the gate of heav'n,

Peace is made 'twixt man and God. 3 Jesus, hail! enthron'd in glory,

There for ever to abide !
All the heav'nly hosts adore thee,

Seated at my Father's side:
There for finners thou art pleading

Spare them yet another year ; -
Thou for faints art interceding,

Till in glory they appear. 4 Worship, honour, pow'r and blefling

Christ is worthy to receiveLoudest praises without ceasing,

Meet it is for us to give ! Help, ye bright angelic spirits,

Bring your sweetest, noblest lays, Help to sing CHRIST Jesu's merits,

Help to chaunt IMMANUEL's praise.



'COME, let us all unite to praise

The Saviour of mankind,
Our thankful hearts in folemn lays..

Be with our voices join'd.


2 But how shall duft his worth declare,

When angels try in vain;
Their faces veil when they appear

Before the Son of man.

30 LORD, we cannot silent be,

By love we are constráin'd
To offer our best thanks to thee,

Our Saviour, and our friend!

4 Tho' feeble are our best essays,

Thy love will not despise
Our grateful songs of humble praise,

Our well-meant facrifice.
5 Let ev'ry tongue thy goodness show,

And spread abroad thy fame
Let ev'ry heart with praise o'erflow,

And blefs thy sacred name ! 6 Worship and honour, thanks and love,

Be to our Jesus giv'n!
By men below,— by hosts above-

By all in earth and heav'n !

ow begin the heav'nly theme,

Sing aloud in Jesu's name ;
Ye, who Jesu's kindness prove,
Triumph in redeeming love.

2 Ye, who see the Father's

Beaming in the Saviour's face ;
As to Canaan on ye move,
Praise and bless redeeming love.

3 Mourning souls, dry up your tears ;

Banish all your guilty fears ;
See your guilt and curse remove,
Cancell'd by redeeming love.

4 Ye, alas ! who long have been

Willing Naves of death and sin;
Now from bliss no longer rove,
Stop—and taste redeeming love.

5 Welcome, all by sin opprest,

Welcome all to JESUS CHRIST ;
Nothing brought him from above,
Nothing but redeeming love.

6 He subdu'd th' infernal pow'rs,

His tremendous foes and ours,
From their cursed empire drove,

Mighty in redeeming love.
7 Hither then your music bring,

Strike aloud each joyful ftring;
Mortals join the hosts above,
Join to praise redeeming love.

BE with me, Lord, where'er I go;

Learn me what thou wou'd'It have

me do ; Suggest whate'er I think or say ; Direct me in the narrow way.

2 Prevent me, left I harbour pride;

Left I in my own strength confide;
Shew me my weakness, let me fee

I have my pow'r, my all from thee. 3 Enrich me alway with thy love ;

My kind protector ever prove;
Thy signet put upon my breast,

And let thy Spirit on me rest.
4 Afift, and teach me how to pray ;

Incline my nature to obey ;
What thou abhorrst, that let me flee,

And only love what pleases thee.
Ś O may I never do my will,

But thine, and only thine fulfil ;
Let all my time, and all my ways,
Be spent and ended to thy praise.





PSALM xciii,
E servants of God,

Your master proclaim;
And publish abroad

His wonderful name :
The name all-victorious

Of Jesus extol;
His kingdom is glorious,

And rules over all. 2 God ruleth on high,

Almighty to save;
And stilī he is nigh,

His presence we have:
The great congregation

His triumph shall fing,
Ascribing falvation

To Jesus our King. 3 Salvation to GOD,

Who sits on the throne;
Let all cry aloud,

And honour the Son:
Our Jesus's praises

The angels proclaim,
Fall down on their faces,

And worship the Lamb.
Then let us adore,

And give him his right;
All glory and pow'r,

And wisdom and might:
