2 His terrors keep the world in awe;

His justice guards his holy law;
His love reveals his fmiling face;

His truth and promise seal the grace, 3

Thro’all his works his wisdom shines,
And bumes Satan's deep designs ;
His pow'r is sov'reign to fulfil

The noblest counsels of his will. 4 And will JEHOVAH condescend

To be my Father and my Friend!
Then let my songs with Angels join;
Heav'n is secure, if God be mine.

H Y M N 80.
O Heavenly King,

Look down from above;
Afrift us to sing

Thy mercy and love:
So sweetly o'erflowing,

So plenteous the store,
Thou still art bestowing,

And giving us more.
2 O God of our life,

We hallow thy name;
Our bus’ness and strife

Is thee to proclaim :
Accept our thanksgiving

For creating grace ;
The living, the living

Shall shew forth-thy praise.

3 Our Father and LORD,

Almighty art thou;
Presery'd by thy Word,

We worship thee now:
The bountiful donor

Of all we enjoy ;
Our tongues to thine honour,

And lives we'll employ.

4. But O; above all

Thy kindness we praise,
From sin and from thrall

Which saves a lost race;
Thy Son thou hast giv'n

A world to redeem,
And bring us to heav'n,

Whose trust is in him.

5 Wherefore of thy love

We fing and rejoice,
With angels above

We lift up our voice ;
Thy love each believer

Shall gladly adore,
For ever and ever,

· When time is no more.

HY MN 81.

DESIRING PERSEVERANCE. · HAIL, Alpha and Omega, hail I

Author of all our faith,
The finisher of all our hopes,

The truth, the life, the path.
2 Hail, first and last, the morning-star,

In whom we live and move;
Increase our little spark of faith,

And purify our love.
Let that belief which Jesus taught,

Be treasur'd in our breast;
The evidence of unseen joys,

The substance of our rest. 4 O let us go from strengih to strength,

From grace to greater grace,
From one degree of faith to more,

Till we behold thy face.






ET us the sheep by Jesus nam'd,

Our Shepheru's mercy bless;
Let us, whom Jesus hath redeein'd,

Shew forth our thankfulness

2 Not unto us, to thee alone,

Be praise and glory givin; Here fhall thy prąises be begun,

But carry'd on in heav'n,
3 The hosts of spirits now with thee,

Eternal anthems ling;
To imitate them here, lo! we

Our hallelujahs bring. 4 Had we our tongues like them inspir'd,

Like theirs, our fongs shou'd rife; Like them we never shou'd bę tir’d,

But love the sacrifice, 5 Till we this veil of flesh lay down,

Accept our weaker lays; And when, OLORD, we reach thy throne,

We'll join in nobler praise.

CH HILDREN of Israel, see what shade

The cross does us afford; It was for weary trav'lers made ;

We thank thee for it, LORD. 2 Here let us sit, and all prepare

To sing his worthy fame ;
Who to redeem us sojourn'd here,

CHRIST Jesus is his name..

3 We sing thy suffrings, wounds and blood,

The virtue of thy pain :
We sing thy griefs, thou dying God,

Thou Lamb for finners Nain.
4 We hail thee, thou by Jews revil'd;

To thee we bow the knee ;
Hail! very God, the promis'd child,

The prophets fang of thee.
5 While others praise an unknown God,

We each will sing of thee ;
Jesus has wash'd me in his blood,

And liv'd, and dy'd for me.


B LESSED are the sons of God,

They are bought with Christ's own

They are ransom’d from the grave,
Life eternal they shall have :
God did love them in his Son,
Long before the world begun;
With them number'd may we be,

Here, and in eternity!
2 They the feal of this receive,

When on Jesus they believe ;
They are juftify'd by grace,
They enjoy a solid

peace :
