SING to the Great Jehovah's praise!
2 His providence hath brought us through
Another various year:
3 Father, Thy mercies past we own,
Thy still continued care;
4 Our lips and lives shall gladly show
The wonders of Thy love,
5 Our residue of days or hours
Thine, wholly Thine, shall be,
6 Till Jesus, in the clouds, appear
To saints on earth forgiven,
990 L.M. Watts. 1709.
U xl . 31.
AWAKE, our souls! away, our fears!
2 True, 'tis a strait and thorny road,
And mortal spirits tire and faint;
That feeds the strength of every saint.
3 Thee, mighty God! whose matchless power
Is ever new and ever young;
And firm endures, while endless years
Their everlasting circles run—
Our souls shall drink a fresh supply;
Shall melt away, and droop, and die.
We'll mount aloft to Thine abode;
Nor tire, while on the heavenly road.
S.M. Doddridgk. 1755.
"\7~E servants of the Lord,
And watchful at His gate.
Let all your lamps be bright,
And trim the golden flame;
For awful is His name.
And while we speak, He's near:
And ready all appear.
O happy servant he,
In such a posture found!
And be with honour crowned.
Christ shall the banquet spread
With His own royal hand,
Amidst the angelic band.
664,6GG4. J. S. Dwight. (1855.) OD bless our native land, Firm may she ever stand,
Through storm and night;
By Thy great might.
On Him we wait.
God save the State!
(18) L.M. Watts. 1719.
LET Zion in her King rejoice,
2 The Lord of old for Jacob fought;
And Jacob's God is still our aid:
3 From sea to sea, through all the shores,
He makes the noise of battle cease;
4 He breaks the bow, He cuts the spear;
Chariots He burns with heavenly flame:
5 "Be still, and learn that I am God;
111 be exalted o'er the lands:
6 O Lord of Hosts! Almighty King!
While we so near Thy presence dwell,

GOD, Thy righteousness we own:
2 Our mouth as in the dust we lay,
3 We have not, Lord, Thy gifts improved,
4 Yet do not drive us from Thy face,
The iron sinew in our neck;
The softening power of love impart,
And melt the marble of our heart.
995 8s & 7s. C. Wesley. 1756.
Hanging, bursting o'er our head;
Thy selected people spare;
Fill our humbled hearts with prayer. 2 If Tby dreadful controversy
With all flesh is now begun,
In Thy wrath remember mercy;
Mercy first and last be shown:
Shake us till the curse remove,
Conquering all with sovereign love.
Every fresh alarming token
More confirms Thy faithful word:
Must be suddenly restored:
From this ruined earth and skies,
See the new creation rise!
Vanish, then, this world of shadows;
Pass the former things away:
With the dawn of endless day!
Throw this universe aside!
Now descend, and take Thy Bride!
S.M. C. Wesley. 1744.
SINNERS, the call obey,
