ZION. 8th P. M.
8th P. M. (185)
Lo! He comes, with clouds descending, Once for favour'd sinners slain;
lujah! God appears on earth to reign, Halle-lu-jah! God appears on earth to reign.
All on earth, and all in heaven,
It is finish'd :-
We also shall appear with Him in glory. IFT your heads, ye friends of Jesus,
182-c. 2 Every eye shall now behold him
Robed in dreadful niajesty;
Still his dazzling body bears;
With what rapture
High on thine eternal throne;
Jah ! Jehovah !
183-b. HA CARK! the voice of love and mercy
Sounds aloud from Calvary ;
It is finish'd :-
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,
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!
All discern him:
Come for his espoused below;
Palms of vict'ry,
Come, ye sin-ners, poor and need-y, Weak and wound-ed, sick and sore Je - sus read-y stands to
save you, Full of pi - ty, love, and power:
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:
This he gives you:
Bruised and mangled by the fall;
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:
None but Jesus
7 Saints and angels, join'd in concert,
Sing the praises of the Lamb;
I will praise thee: Where shall I thy praise begin ? 2 Though unseen, I love the Saviour;
He hath brought salvation near;
Soul and body
Glory to the great I AM,
o how precious
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
God the Father, God the Son.
510 The light yoke and easy burden. 53-6. THAT load of sin were gone;
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;
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
on, Lord, for thee; Tiiy saints a-dore thy ho - ly Name;
Thy creatures bend tlı’o-be - dient knee, And, humbly, now thy pres - ence claim.
71-6. PRAISE waits in Zion, Lord, for thee ;
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.
BRIGHTON. "Ist P. M. (152)
Blog 1. O Love divine, what hast thou done! Th'incarnate God hath died for
The Fa - ther's co - e - ter - nal Son Bore all my sins
up • on the tree !
The Son of God for me hath died: My Lord, my Love, is
Love divine. ? Behold him, all ye
And say, was ever grief like his ?
To bring 1 . rebels back to God:
Ye all are bought with Jesus' blood :
And gladly catch the healing stream;
And give up all our hearts to him:
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;
To bring the long-sought Saviour down; Thou art to all already given,
Thou dost e'en now thy banquet crown ;--
the sins of the world.
The Friend and Saviour of mankind;
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;
He sojourns in a house of clay :
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.
