HYMNS CONCERNING THE WORSHIP OF OOD.

(97) CM. C. Wesley. 1740.

0FOR a thousand tongues to sing
My great Redeemer's praise!
The glories of my God and King,
The triumphs of His grace!

I My gracious Master, and my God,
Assist me to proclaim,
To spread through all the earth abroad
The honours of Thy Name.

i Jesus! the Name that charms our fears,
That bids our sorrows cease;
'Tis music in the sinner's ears,
Tis life, and health, and peace.

4 He breaks the power of cancell'd sin,

He sets the prisoner free;
His blood can make the foulest clean;
His blood availed for me.

5 He speaks,—and listening to His voice,

New life the dead receive;
The mournful, broken hearts rejoice,
The humble poor believe.

G Hear Him, ye deaf; His praise, ye dumb,
Your loosened tongues employ;
Ye blind, behold your Saviour come,
And leap, ye lame, for joy.

7 Look unto Him, ye nations; own

Your God, ye fallen race;
Look, and be saved through faith alone,
Be justified by grace.

8 See all your sins on Jesus laid:

The Lamb of God was slain,
His soul was once an offering made
For every soul of man.

9 Awake from guilty nature's sleep,

And Christ shall give you light,
Cast all your sins into the deep,

And wash the ^Ethiop white.
10 With me, your chief, ye then shall know,

Shall feel your sins forgiven;
Anticipate your heaven below,

And own that love is heaven.

Z (206) 7s & 6s. C. Wesley. 1749.

MEET and right it is to sing,
In every time and place,
Glory to our heavenly King,

The God of truth and grace:
Join we then with sweet accord,
All in one thanksgiving join:
Holy, holy, holy Lord,
Eternal praise be Thine!

2 Thee, the first-bom sons of light,

In choral symphonies,
Praise by day, day without night,

And never, never cease:
Angels and archangels, all
Praise the mystic Three in One;
Sing, and stop, and gaze, and fall

O'erwhelmed before Thy throne t

3 Vying with that happy choir,

Who chant Thy praise above,
We, on eagles' wings aspire,
The wings of faith and love:
