The Lord, the Judge, before his throne 71
The Lord, the Judge, his churches warns 72
The praises of my God and King

215
There is a God, all nature speaks

148
They who in ships, with courage bold

159
Think, mighty God, on feeble man

122
This is the day the Lord hath made 169
This spacious earth is all the Lord's 39, 40
Thou art my portion, O my God

172
Thou God, by whose command I live 207
Thou God of love, thou ever blest

182
Thou, Lord, hast earth's foundation laid 141
Thou, Lord, in heaven hast plac'd thy throne 145
Thou, Lord, through every changing scene 120
Through all the changing scenes of life 53

To thee, great God, will I disclose

209
To thee, most holy and most high

103
To thee, my God, my heart shall bring 201
To thine almighty arm we owe

To your Creator, God

VAST are thy works, Almighty Lord 147

WE bless the Lord, the just, the good 93
Welcome, thou day of sacred rest

128
What seraph of celestial birth

124
What shall I render to my God

167
What sinners value I resign

25
When fancy spreads her boldest wings 10
When God reveal'd his gracious name

189
When Israel, freed from Pharaoh's hand 166
When I survey life's varied scene

127
When, overwhelm'd with pain and grief 82, 105
Where nothing dwelt but beasts prey

160
With all my powers of heart and tongue

202
With songs and honours sounding loud 217
Who shall ascend thy heavenly place

Why do the wealthy wicked boast

57
Why doth the Lord stand off so far

Why doth the man of riches

grow

Why should I vex my soul, and fret

YE boundless realms of joy

224
Ye servants of th' eternal King

196
Ye servants of th' almighty King

Yet saith the Lord, if David's race,

HYMNS.

Hymn I. Long Metre.

or by l'ersecution. I ABSURD and vain attempt ! to bind

With iron chains, the freeborn mind ;
To force conviction, and reclaim

The wandering, by destructive flame ! 2 Bold arrogance, to snatch from heaven

Dominion not to mortals given !
O’er conscience to usurp the throne,

Accountable to God alone !
3 Mad zeal ! that fills the world with wo !

That hurls down kingdoms at a blow!
That wakens vengeance to devour

The foes of antichristian power ! 4 Jesus, thy gentle law of love

Does no such cruelties approve ; - Mild as thyself, thy doctrine wields

No arms, but what persuasion yields. 3 By proofs divine and reason strong,

It draws the willing soul along ;
And conquests to thy church acquires,
By eloquence, which Heaven inspires.
6 O happy, who are thus compellid

To the rich feast, by Jesus held !
May we this blessing know, and prize
The light which liberty supplies.

SCOTT.

Hymn II. Common Meire.

The Resurrection of Christ.
I AGAIN the Lord of life and light

Awakes the kindling ray,
Uoseals the eyelids of the morn,

And pours increasing day.
2 This day be grateful homage paid,

And loud hosannas sung ;
Let gladness dwell on every heart,

And praise on every tongue.
3 Ten thousand offering lips shall join,

To hail this welcome morn,
Which scatters blessings from its wings,

To nations yet unborn.
4 Jesus, the friend of human kind,

With strong compassion movid,
Came from the bosom of his God,

To save the souls he lov'd. 5 The powers of darkness leagu'd in vain,

To bind his soul in death ;
He shook their kingdoms when he fell,

With his expiring breath.
6 Not long the bands of death could keep

The hope of Judah's line ;
Corruption never could take hold

On one so much divine.
7 Exalted high at God's right hand,

And Lord of all below ;
Through him is pardoning love dispens’d,

And endless blessings flow.
18 Now to our Saviour and our King,

Glad homage let us give;
Andobe prepar'd like him to die,
That with him we may live.

Mrs. BARBAULB.

Hymn III. Long Metre. 6

Holy Resolution.
1 AH, wretched souls, who strive in vain !

Slaves to the world, and slaves to sin !
A pobler toil may I sustaio,

A nobler satisfaction win.
2 I would resolve with all my heart,

With all my powers to serve the Lord ;
Nor from his precepts e'er depart,

Whose service is a rich reward. 3 O be his service all my joy!

Around let my example shine ;
Till others love the bless'd employ,

And join in labours so divine.
4 Be this the purpose of my soul,

My solemn, my determin'd choice,
To yield to his supreme control,
And in his kind commands rejoice.
5 O may I never faint nor tire,

Nor wander from thy sacred ways !
Great God, accept my soul's desire,
And give me strength to live thy praise.

Mrs. STEELE.

HYMN IV. Common Merre. b

Watchfulness and Prayer.
1 ALAS, what hourly dangers rise !
What snares beset my way

!
To heaven then let me lift my eyes,

And hourly watch and pray. 2 How oft my mournful thoughts complain,

And melt in flowing tears !
My weak resistance, ah how vain!

How strong my foes and fears!
