4 Come quickly in, thou heavenly guest,

Nor ever hence remove;
But sup with us, and let the feast

Be everlasting love. 4

C. M.
The Lamb worshipped on earth and in heaven.
MOME, let us join our cheerful songs

With angels round the throne :
Ten thousand thousand are their tongues,

But all their joys are one. 2 Worthy the Lamb that died, they cry,

To be exalted thus :
Worthy the Lamb, our hearts reply,

For he was slain for us.
3 Jesus is worthy to receive

Honour and power divine;
And blessings more than we can give,

Be, Lord, forever thine.
4 The whole creation join in one,

To bless the sacred name
Of Him that sits upon the throne,

And to adore the Lamb.

L. M.

Jesus reigns.
1OME, let us tune our loftiest song,

And raise to Christ our joyful strain; Worship and thanks to Him belong,

Who reigns, and shall forever reign. . His sov'reign power our bodies made;

Our souls are his immortal breath; And when his creatures sinn'd, he bled,

To save us from eternal death. 3 Burn every breast with Jesus' love;

Bound every heart with rapt'rous joy; And saints on earth, with saints above,

Your voices in his praise employ.

4 Extol the Lamb with loftiest song,

Ascend for him our cheerful strain; Worship and thanks to Him belong,

Who reigns, and shall forever reign.

C. M.
The glories of our King.
C'OME, ye that love the Saviour's name, ,

And joy to make
The Sov'reign of your hearts proclaim,

And bow before his throne.
2 Behold your Lord, your Master, crown'd

With glories all divine:
And tell the wond'ring nations round,

How bright those glories shine.
3 When, in his earthly courts, we view

The glories of our King, We long to love as angels do,

And wish, like them, to sing. 4 And shall we long and wish in vain ?

Lord, teach our songs to rise: Thy love can animate the strain,

And bid it reach the skies.

C. M. Joining the song of the Church triumphant. VING we the song of those who stand

Of every kindred, clime, and land,

A multitude unknown.
2 Life's poor distinctions vanish here;

To-day the young, the old,
Our Saviour and his flock, appear,

One shepherd and one fold.

3 Toil, trial, suff'ring, still await

On earth the pilgrim throng; Yet learn we in cur low estate

The Church triumphant's song. 4 Worthy the Lamb for sinners slain,

Cry the redeem'd above, Blessing and honour to obtain,

And everlasting love. 5 Worthy the Lamb, on earth we sing,

Who died our souls to save; Henceforth, O Death, where is thy sting ?

Thy victory, O Grave?
6 Then hallelujah! power and praise

To God in Christ be given;
May all who now this anthem raise,

Renew the song in heaven.

Glory to the Lamb.
CARK! the notes of angels, singing,

Glory, glory to the Lamb!
All in heaven their tribute bringing,

Raising high the Saviour's name. 2 Ye for whom his life was given,

Sacred themes to you belong : Come, assist the choir of heaven;

Join the everlasting song. 3 Filld with holy emulation,

We unite with those above: Sweet the theme—a free salvation

Fruit of everlasting love. 4 Endless life in him possessing,

Let us praise his precious nanie; Glory, honour, power, and blessing,

Be forever to the Lamb.

5th P. M. 4 lines 7s Saints and angels ever praising God. YONGS of praise the angels sang,

Heaven with hallelujahs rang, When Jehovah's work begun, When he spake and it was done. 2 Songs of praise awoke the morn, When the Prince of peace was born; Songs of praise arose, when he Captive led captivity. 3 Saints below, with heart and voice, Still in songs of praise rejoice; Learning here, by faith and love, Songs of praise to sing above. 4 Borne upon their latest breath, Songs of praise shall conquer death;

l
Then, amid eternal joy,
Songs of praise their powers employ.

L. M.
Tribute of praise to the Saviour.
ESUS, thou everlasting King,

Accept the tribute which we bring;
Accept thy well-deserved renown,
And wear our praises as thy crown.
2 Let every act of worship be
Like our espousals, Lord, to thee:
Like the blest hour, when from above
We first received the pledge of love.
3 The gladness of that happy day,
O may it ever, ever stay:
Nor let our faith forsake its hold,
Nor hope decline, nor love grow cold.
4 Let every moment, as it flies,
Increase thy praise, improve our joys,
Till we are raised to sing thy Name,
At the great supper of the Lamb.

L. M.
The creation invited to praise God.
ROM all that dwell below the skies,

Let the Creator's praise arise;
Let the Redeemer's name be sung,
Through every land, by every tongue.
2 Eternal are thy mercies, Lord;
Eternal truth attends thy word :
Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore,
Till suns shall rise and set no more.
3 Your lofty themes, ye mortals, bring :
In songs of praise divinely sing;
The great salvation loud proclaim,
And shout for joy the Saviour's name.
4 In every land begin the song ;
To every land the strains belong :
In cheerful sounds all voices raise,
And fill the world with loudest praise.

S. M.
The universal King.
1OME, sound his praise abroad,

And hymns of glory sing :
Jehovah is the sov’reign God,

The universal King.
2 He form’d the deeps unknown;

He gave the seas their bound;
The wat'ry worlds are all his own,

And all the solid ground.
3 Come, worship at his throno,

Come, bow before the Lord ;
We are his works, and not our own,

He form'd us by his word.
4 To-day attend his voice,

Nor dare provoke his rod;
Come, like the people of his choice,

And own your gracious God.
