Lo! He comes, with clouds descending, Once for favour'd sinners slain;
Thousand thousand saints, attending, Swell the triumph of his train : } Hal- le-

[ocr errors][ocr errors][ocr errors]

All on earth, and all in heaven,
Join to praise Immanuel's name;

It is finish'd :-
Glory to the bleeding Lamb.


We also shall appear with Him in glory. IFT your heads, ye friends of Jesus,


Behold, He cometh !

182-c. 2 Every eye shall now behold him

Robed in dreadful niajesty;
Those who set at naught and sold him,
Pierced and naild him to the tree,

Deeply wailing,
Shall the true Messiah see.
3 All the tokens of his passion

Still his dazzling body bears;
Cause of endless exultation
To his ransom'd worshippers;

With what rapture
Gaze we on those glorious scars.
4 Yea, Amen ! let all adore thee,

High on thine eternal throne;
Saviour, take the power and glory;
Make thy righteous sentence known:

Jah ! Jehovah !
Claim the kingdom for thine own.
It is finished.

183-b. HA CARK! the voice of love and mercy

Sounds aloud from Calvary ;
See! it rends the rocks asunder,
Shakes the earth, and veils the sky;

It is finish'd :-
Hear the dying Saviour cry.
2 It is finish'd ! ( what pleasure

Do these precious words afford ! Heavenly blessings, without measure, Flow to us from Christ the Lord :

It is finish'd:Saints, the dying words record. 3 Tune your harps anew, ye seraphs ;

Join to sing the pleasing theme;

Christ, to all believers precious,
Lord of lords, shall soon appear:

Mark the tokens Of his heavenly kingdom near. 2 Sun and moon are both confounded,

Darken'd into endless night, When, with angel-hosts surrounded, In his Father's glory bright,

Beams the Saviour, Shines the everlasting light. 3 See the stars from heaven falling;.

Hark, on earth the doleful cry; Men on rocks and mountains calling, While the frowning Judge draws nigh:

Hide us, hide us, Rocks and mountains, from his eye! 4 With what diff'rent exclamation

Shall the saints his banner see!
By the tokens of his passion,
By the marks received for me :-

All discern him:
All with shouts cry out — 'Tis He!
5 Lo! 'tis He! our hearts' Desire,

Come for his espoused below;
Come to join us with his choir,
Come to make our joys o'erflow:

Palms of vict'ry,
Crowns of glory, to bestow.

341 COM YOME, ye sinners, poor and needy,

Weak and wounded, sick and sore; Jesus ready stands to save you, Full of pity, love, and power:

He is able, He is willing : doubt no more. 2 Now, ye needy, come and welcome;

God's free bounty glorify; True belief and true repentance, -. Every grace that brings you nigh,

Without money, Come to Jesus Christ and buy. 3 Let not conscience make you linger;

Nor of fitness fondly dream:
All the fitness he requireth
Is to feel your need of him:

This he gives you:
'Tis the Spirit's glimm’ring beam.
4 Come, ye weary, heavy-laden,

Bruised and mangled by the fall;
If you tarry till you're better,
You will never come at all;

Not the righteous,Sinners Jesus came to call. 5 Agonizing in the garden,

Your Redeemer prostrate lies ; On the bloody tree behold him ! Hear him cry, before he dies,

It is finish'd !-Sinners, will not this suffice? 6 Lo! the incarnate God, ascending,

Pleads the merit of his blood:
Venture on him,--venture freely;
Let no other trust intrude:

None but Jesus
Can do helpless sinners gooil.

7 Saints and angels, join'd in concert,

Sing the praises of the Lamb;
While the blissful seats of heaven
Sweetly, echo with his name:

Sinners here may do the same.

THOU God of my salvation,
Moved by thy divine compassion,
Who hast died my heart to win,

I will praise thee: Where shall I thy praise begin ? 2 Though unseen, I love the Saviour;

He hath brought salvation near;
Manifests his pard’ning favor;
And when Jesus doth appear,

Soul and body
Shall his glorious image bear.
3 While the angel choirs are crying,-

Glory to the great I AM,
I with them will still be vying-
Glory! glory to the Lanib!

o how precious
Is the sound of Jesus' name!
4 Angels now are hov'riny round us,

Unperceived amid the throng; Wond’ring at the love that crown'd us, Glad to join the holy song:

Hallelujah, I ove and praise to Christ belong ! 1140

"REAT Jehovah! we adore thee,

God the Father, God the Son.
God the Spirit, join'd in glory
On the same eternal throne:

Endless praises
To Jehovah, Three in one.

510 The light yoke and easy burden. 53-6. THAT load of sin were gone;

my 0

O that I could at last submit At Jesus' feet to lay it down

To lay my soul at Jesus' feet. 2 Pest for my soul I long to find :

Saviour of all, if mine thou art, Give me thy meek and lowly mind, And stamp thine image on my

heart. 3 Break off the yoke of inbred sin,

And fully set my spirit free; I cannot rest till pure within,-

Till I am wholly lost in thee. 4 Fain would I learn of thee, my God;

Thy light and easy burden prove; The cross all stain'd with hallow'd blood,

The labour of thy dying love. 5 I would, but thou must give the power;

My heart from every sin release; Bring near, bring near the joyful hour,

And fill me with thy perfect peace.

423 Ilope springing up.

58–6. MY Y soul before thee prostrate lies ;

To thee, her Source, my Spirit flies; My wants I mourn, my chains I see; Olet thy presence set me free. 2 Jesus, vouchsafe my heart and will With thy meek lowliness to fill; No more her power let nature boast, But in thy will may mine be lost. 3 Already springing hope I feel,God will destroy the power of hell, And, from a land of wars and pain, Lead me where peace and safety reign. 4 One only care my soul shall know,Father, all thy commands to do ; And feel, what endless years shall prove, That thou, my Lord, my God, art fore.


827 The well of living water. 65-a. JE ESUS, the gift divine I know,

The gift divine I ask of thee; The living water now bestow,

Thy Spirit and thyself, on me. 2 For thou of life the fountain art,

None else can give or take away ; O may I find it in my heart,

And with me may it ever stay. 3 Thus may I drink,—and thirst no more

For drops of finite happiness;
Spring up, 0 well, in heavenly power,
In streams of pure perennial peace.

316 The inbred leprosy.

67-u. ESUS, a word, a look from thee,

Can turn my heart, and make it clean ; Purge out the inbred leprosy,

And save me from my bosom sin. 2 Lord, if thou wilt, I do believe

Thou canst the saving grace impart; Thou canst this instant now forgive,

And stamp thine image on my heart. 3 My heart, which now to thee I raise,

I know thou canst this moment cleanse ; The deepest stains of sin efface,

And drive the evil spirit hence. 4 Be it according to thy word; ·

Accomplish now thy work in me; And let my soul, to health restored,

Devote its deathless powers to thee

Thy thy
Thy creatures bend the' obedient knee,

And, humbly, now thy presence claim. 2 Eternal Source of truth and light,

To thee we look, on thee we call; Lord, we are nothing in thy sight,

But thou to us art all in all. 3 Still may thy children in thy word

Their comnion trust and refuge see; 0, bind us to each other, Lord,

By one great bond,—the love of thee. 4 So shall our sun of hope arise,

With brighter still and brighter ray, Till thou shalt bless our longing eyes

With beams of everlasting day.


God seen in his worke. 34-6. THI HERE is a God—all nature speaks,

Through earth, and air, and seas, and skies; See--from the clouds his glory breaks,

When earliest beams of morning rise. 2 The rising sun, serenely bright,

Throughout the world's extended frame, Inscribes, in characters of light,

His mighty Maker's glorious name. 3 Ye curious minds, who roam abroad,

And trace creation's wonders o'er, Confess the footsteps of your God;

Bow down before him and adore.



The redeemed in heaven. 34-a. Lo O! round the throne, a glorious hand,

The saints in countless myriads stand; Of every tongue redeem'd to God, Array'd in garments wash'd in blood. 2 Through tribulation great they came ; They bore the cross, despised the shame; But now from all their labours rest, In God's eternal glory blest. 3 They see the Saviour face to face; They sing the triumph of his grace; And day and night, with ceaseless praise, To him their loud hosannas raise. 4 O, may we tread the sacred road That holy saints and martyrs trod; Wage to the end the glorious strife, And win, like them, a crown of life.

688 The Saviour seen in the Scriptures. 69-11 COW let my soul, eternal King,

To My knee, with humble homage, bow; My tongue perform its solemn vow. 2 All nature sings thy boundless love, In worlds below, and worlds above ; But in thy blessed word I trace Diviner wonders of thy grace. 3 There, what delightful truths I read! There, I behold the Saviour bleed: His name salutes my list'ning ear, Revives my heart, and checks my fear. 4 There Jesus bids my sorrows cease, And gives my lab'ring conscience peace; Raises my grateful thoughts on high, And points to mansions in the sky. 5 For love like this, O let my song, Through endless years, thy praise prolong Let distant climes thy Name adore, Till time and nature are no more.

Love divine. ? Behold him, all ye

The bleeding Prince of life and peace !
Come see, ye worms, your Saviour die,

And say, was ever grief like his ?
Come, feel with me his blood applied:
My Lord, my Love, is crucified.
3 Is crucified for me and you,

To bring 1 . rebels back to God:
Believe, believe the record true,-

Ye all are bought with Jesus' blood :
Pardon for all flows from his side:
My Lord, my Love, is crucified.
4 Then let us sit beneath his cross,

And gladly catch the healing stream;
All things for him account but loss,

And give up all our hearts to him:
Of nothing think or speak beside, -
My Lord, my Love, is crucified.

The efficacy of the atoning blood. 156-a. VICTim divinel thy grace we claim

While thus thy precious death we show; Once offer'd up a spotless Lamb,

In thy great temple here below, Thou didst for all mankind atone, And standest now before the throne. ? Thou standest in the holiest place,

As now for guilty sinners slain;

The blood of sprinkling speaks, and prays,

All-prevalent for helpless man;
Thy blood is still our ransom found,
And speaks salvation all around,
3 We need not now go up to heaven

To bring the long-sought Saviour down; Thou art to all already given,

Thou dost e'en now thy banquet crown ;--
To every faithful soul appear.
And show thy real presence here.
302 The Lamb of God who taketh away 150-a.

the sins of the world.
EE, sinners, in the gospel glass,

The Friend and Saviour of mankind;
Not one of all the apostate race

But may in him salvation find : His thoughts, and words, and actions prove,His life and death,—that God is love. 2 Behold the Lamb of God, who bears

The sins of all the world away;
A servant's fo he meekly wears,

He sojourns in a house of clay :
His glory is no longer seen,
But God with God is man with men.
3 See where the God incarnate stands,

And calls his wand'ring creatures home: He all day long spreads out his hands;

Come, weary souls, to Jesus come! Ye all may hide you in his breast, Believe, and he will give you rest.
