4 Come quickly in, thou heavenly guest,
Nor ever hence remove;
Be everlasting love. 4
With angels round the throne :
But all their joys are one. 2 Worthy the Lamb that died, they cry,
To be exalted thus :
For he was slain for us.
Honour and power divine;
Be, Lord, forever thine.
To bless the sacred name
And to adore the Lamb.
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.
And joy to make
And bow before his throne.
With glories all divine:
How bright those glories shine.
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.
To-day the young, the old,
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?
To God in Christ be given;
Renew the song in heaven.
9th P. M. 87,87.
Glory, glory to the Lamb!
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;
Accept the tribute which we bring;
Let the Creator's praise arise;
And hymns of glory sing :
The universal King.
He gave the seas their bound;
And all the solid ground.
Come, bow before the Lord ;
He form'd us by his word.
Nor dare provoke his rod;
And own your gracious God.
