7 Ye seraphs, nearest to the throne,

With rapturous amaze
On us, poor ransomed worms, look down,

For heaven's superior praise ;
8 The King, whose glorious face ye see,

For us His crown resigned ;
That fulness of the Deity,
He died for all mankind !

78.

C. WESLEY. 1741.
NLAP your hands, ye people all,
U Praise the God on whom ye call;
Lift your voice, and shout His praise,

Triumph in His sovereign grace! 2 Glorious is the Lord Most High,

Terrible in Majesty ;
He His sovereign sway maintains,

King o'er all the earth He reigns. 3 He shall bless His ransomed ones,

Number us with Israel's sons ;
God our heritage shall prove,

Give us all a lot of love.
4 Jesus is gone up on high,

Takes His seat above the sky;
Shout the angel choirs aloud,

Echoing to the trump of God.
5 Sons of earth, the triumph join,

Praise Him with the host divine;
Emulate the heavenly powers,

Their victorious Lord is ours.
6. Shout the God enthroned above,

Trumpet forth His conquering love;
Praises to our Jesus sing,

Praises to our glorious King! 7 Power is all to Jesus given,

Power o'er hell, and earth, and heaven!
Power He now to us imparts;
Praise Him with believing hearts.

8 Wonderful in saving power,

Him let all our hearts adore ;
Earth and heaven repeat the cry,
“Glory be to God Most High !"

TATHER of me, and all mankind,

T And all the hosts above,
Let every understanding mind

Unite to praise Thy love :
2 To know Thy nature, and Thy name,

One God in Persons Three;
And glorify the great I AM,

Through all eternity.
3 Thy kingdom come, with power and grace,

To every heart of man :
Thy peace, and joy, and righteousness

In all our bosoms reign.
4 The righteousness that never ends,

But makes an end of sin,
The joy that human thought transcends,

Into our souls bring in :
5 The kingdom of established peace,

Which can no more remove;
The perfect power of godliness,

The omnipotence of love.

TATHER of all, whose powerful voice

Callid forth this universal frame !
Whose mercies over all rejoice,

Through endless ages still the same; 2 Thou by Thy word upholdest all ;

Thy bounteous love to all is show'd ;
Thou hear'st Thy every creature's call,

And fillest every mouth with good.

C. WESLEY. 1740.
FOR a thousand tongues to sing

My great Redeemer's praise !
The glories of my God and King,

The triumphs of His grace !
2 My gracious Master, and my God,

Assist me to proclaim,
To spread through all the earth abroad

The honours of Thy Name.
3 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.
6 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 Æthiop 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.

M EET and right it is to sing,

M 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-born 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 !
3 Vying with that happy choir,

Who chant Thy praise above,
We, on eagles' wings aspire,

The wings of faith and love :
