HYMN 88. L. M. Castle Street. [*]
M My praise shall climb to his abode; d Thee, SAVIOUR, by that name I call,
The great Supreme, the mighty God,
2 Without beginning, or decline, · Object of faith, and not of sease;. g Eternal ages saw Him shine
He shines eternal ages hence. e 3 As much when in the manger laid,
Almighty ruler of the sky; -As when the six day's work he made o Fill'd all the morning stars with joy. -4 Of all the crowns Jehovah bears Salvation is his dearest claim; That gracious sound well pleas'd he hears,
And owns EMMANUEL for his name. 05 A cheerful confidence I feel,
My well plac'd hopes with joy I see;
To worship him who died for ine. e 6 As man, he pities my complaint; o His pow'r and cruth are all divine; -He will not fail, he cannot faint, g Salvation's Sun, and must be mine. COWPER.
HYMN 89. L. M. Leeds. [*] Assurance in Christ our Righteousness. Iša. xiv, 21.
Jer. xxii, 6. 1 TESUS, thy blood and righteousness
My beauty are, iny glorious dress; 'Midst flaming worlds, in these array'd,
With joy shall I lift up my head. e 2 When from the dust of death I rise,
To claim my mansion in the skies; -E'en then shall this be all iny plead“Jesus hath liv'd--and dy'd for me!" -3 Bold shall I stand in that great day, For who aught to my charge shall lay? Fully, through thee absolv'd I am, From sin's tremendous curse and shame;
4 Thus Abraham the friend of God,
Thus all the armies bought with blood, o Saviour of sinners, thee proclaim e Sinners, 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 robe of Christ is ever new. 0 6 O let the dead now hear thy voice; o Now bid thy banish'd ones rejoice; -Their beauty this, their glorious dress, g “JESUS THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS."
WESLEY, HYMN 90. C. M. Arundel. [*]
Holy Fortitude: or, the Christian Soldier. 1 A MI a soldier of the cross?
A A follower of the Lamb! e And shall I fear to own his cause,
Or blush to speak his name? -2 Must I be carry'd to the skies,
On flow'ry beds of ease? e Whilst others fought to win the prize,
And sail'd through bloody seas? -3 Are there no foes for me to face?
Must I not stem the flood? e Is this vile world a friend to grace,
To help me on to'God?
Supported by thy word.
Shall conquer, though they die; o They view the triumph from afar,
And seize it with their eye. 0 6 When that illustrious day shall rise,
And all thy armies shinen In robes of victory through the skiesg The glory shall be 'thine.
WATTS. HYMN 91. 8, 7 & 4. Tamworth. [*]
God the Pilgrim's Guide. Ps. xlviii, 14.
U Pilgrim thro' this barren land;
I am weak, but thou art mighty;
Bread of heaven,
Whe ice the healing streams do flow!,
Be thou still my strength and shield. e 3 When I tread the verge of Jordan,
Bid my anxious fears subside; o Death of death, and hell's destruction,
Land me safe on Canaan's side:
Songs of praises
The Christian's Shepherd. Ps. xxiii.
1 Avd feed me with a sinepherd's care;
And all my midnight hours defend. e 2 When in the sultry glebe I faint, Or on the thirsty mountains pant,
To fertiie vales and dewy meads, My weary wand'ring steps he leads; Where peaceful rivers, soft and slow,
Amid the verdant landscapes How. e 3 Though in a bare and rugged way,
Through devious, lonely wilds I stray; --His bounty shall my pains beguile; o The barren wilderness shall smile,
With lively greens ard herbage crown'd,
And streams shall murmur all around. o 4 Though in the paths of death I tread,
With gloomy horrours overspread, o My steadfast heart shall fear no ill,
For thou, O Lord, art with me stiil;
HYMN 93. L. M. Oporto. [*]
Ministry of Angels. Ps. xci, 11.
D Glad to foretel a Saviour's birth;
The new born Saviour, and the King.
On Jesus, in his humble state; p The desert and the garden prove
Their glowing zeal, their tender love.
To glorious worlds beyond the sky;
To take his place at God's right hand.
Thro’ life; and when I quit this clay, o Safe to thine arms my soul convey. NEEDHAM.
HYMN 94. C. M. Devizes. [*]
! Servants of Gad always safe.
II How sure is their defence! lo Eternal wisdom is their guide,
Their help, Omnipotence,
Supported by thy care;
And breathe in tainted air.
High on the broken wave,
Nor impotent to save.
Obedient to thy will:
At thy command is still,
e 5 In ʼmidst of dangers, fears, and deaths,
Thy goodness we'll adore;
Thy sacrifice shall be;
Confidence and joy in Ged. Hab. iii, 17, 18. e 1 ALTHO'the vine its fruit deny,
A Altho' the olive yield no oil; The with’ring fig-tree droop and die,
The field delude the tiller's toil; 2 Altho’ the stall no herd afford, . p And perish all the bleating race; o Yet will I triumph in the Lord, S The God of my salvation praise. e 3 Tho' comfortless my soul remain,
And not a gleam of light appear; a Tho' joy be sought, and sought in vain,
And tho' despair itself be near;p 4 Altho' assurance all be lost,
And blooming hopes cut off I see; o Yet will I in my Saviour trust & And glory that he died for me. WESLEY.
HYMN 96. C. M. Zion. [*] ;
Christ the Believer's Song. ė 1 THOU dear Redeemer, dying Lamb,
1 We love to hear of thee; -No musick's like thy charming name,
Nor half so sweet can be. e 2 O may we ever hear thy voice, . In mercy to us speak; 0 And in our Priest will we rejoice,
Thou great Melchisedeck. -3 Our Jesus shall be still our theme,
While in this world we stay; o We'll sing our Jesus' lovely name,
When all things else decay.
