All honour and blessing,

With angels above;
And thanks never-ceasing,

And infinite love.

[ocr errors][merged small]




OW can we adore,

Or worthily praise
Thy goodness and pow'r,

Thou God of all grace!
With honour and blessing

Before thee we fall,
Moft gladly confessing,

Thee Father of all.
2 The heav'ns and earth,

And water and air,
To thee owe their birth,

Subfilt by thy care ;
While angels are singing

Thy praises above,
We mortals are bringing

Our tribute of love.
3 Thou, Saviour, art one

With God the supreme,
His eternal Son,

And equal with him :
Invested with glory,

On high dolt thou fit,
While angels-adore thee,

And bow at thy feet.

4 How great was thy love!

How wond'rous thy grace !
Thou cam'ft from above

To save a lost race ;
And man to deliver,

Of woman was born,
That every believer

To God might return.
5 How soon will thy feat

Of judgment appear !
Prepare us to meet,

And welcome thee there!
Thy witnessing Spirit

In us shed abroad
And bid us inherit

The kingdom of GOD!

HYMN 76.



ESU, lover of my soul,

Let me to thy bosom fly, While the nearer waters roll,

While the tempest still is high : Hide me, O my Saviour, hide,

Till the storm of life is past; Safe into the haven guide,

O receive my soul at last !

: 76

. 2 Other refuge have I none;

Hangs my helplefs foul on thee;
Leave, ah! leave me not alone,

Still support and comfort me:
All my trust on thee is stay'd,

All my help from thee I bring;
Cover my defenceless head

With the shadow of thy wing:

3 Thou, O. CHRIST, art all I want;

More than all in thee I find;
Raise the fallen, chear the faint,

Heal the sick, and lead the blind;
Just and holy is thy name;

I am all unrighteousness!
Vile, and full of sin I am,

Thou art full of truth and grace.

4 Plenteous grace with thee is found, Grace to pardon all my

sin : Let the healing streams abound,

Make, and keep me pure within :
Thou of life the fountain árt,

Freely let me take of thee;
Spring thou up within my heart,

Rife to all eternity!



77 CHRIST OUR GREAT MÉLCHISÉDEC. : Thou dear Redeemer, dying Lamb !

We love to hear of thee;
No music like thy charming naine,

Nör half so sweet can be !
O may we ever hear thy voice,

In mercy to us fpeak!
And in our Priest will we rejoice,


2 Our Jesus shall be still our theme,

While in this world we stay;
We'll sing our Jesu's lovely name,

When all things elfe decay :
When we appear in yonder cloud,

With all his favour'd throng ;
Then will we sing more sweet and loud,

And Christ shall be our fong.

HYMN 78.


ESU, thy blood and righteousness,

My beauty are, my glorious dress ; 'Midit Aaming worlds in these array'd, With joy shall I lift up my head.

2 When from the dust of death I rife,

To claim my mansion in the skies ;
E’en then shall this be all iny plea,

Jesus hath Liv'd, hath dy'd for me.” 3 Bold shall I ftand in that great day;

For who ought to my charge frall lay? Fully thro' these abfolv'd I am

From sin and fear, from guilt and shame. 4. Thus ABRAHAM the friend of God,

Thus all the armies bought with blood,
Saviour of finners thee proclaim ;.

Sinpers, of whom the chief I am.
5 This spotless robe the same appears,

When ruin'd nature sinks in years ;
No age can change its glorious hue,

The grace of CHRIST is ever new.
6 O let the dead now hear thy voice,

Now bid thy banish'd ones rejoice, Their beauty this, their glorious dress, JESUS THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS,
