FROM all that dwell below the skies,
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.

3 The dictates of thy sov'reign will With joy our grateful hearts receive; All thy delight in us fulfil;

Lo, all we are to thee we give.

4 To thy sure love, thy tender care,
Our flesh, soul, spirit, we resign;
O fix thy sacred presence there,
And seal the' abode forever thine.



Dedication: The tokens of His 61-b.


ND will the great eternal God
On earth establish his abode ?
And will he, from his radiant throne,
Accept our temples for his own?

2 These walls we to thy honour raise;
Long may they echo to thy praise :
And thou, descending, fill the place
With choicest tokens of thy grace.
3 Here let the great Redeemer reign,
With all the graces of his train;
While power divine his word attends,
To conquer foes, and cheer his friends.
4 And in the great decisive day,
When God the nations shall survey,
May it before the world appear
That crowds were born to glory here.

The song of Moses and the Lamb.

AWAKE, and sing the song.

Of Moses and the Lamb;

Wake, every heart and every tongue, To praise the Saviour's Name.

2 Sing of his dying love;

Sing of his rising power;
Sing how he intercedes above
For those whose sins he bore.

3 Ye pilgrims, on the road
To Zion's city, sing;
Rejoice ye in the Lamb of God,—
În Christ, the' eternal King.
4 Soon shall we hear him say,-
Ye blessed children, come;
Soon will he call us hence away,

To our eternal home.

5 There shall each raptured tongue
His endless praise proclaim;
And sweeter voices tune the song
Of Moses and the Lamb.

4 Thy temple is the arch

Of yon unmeasured sky;

Thy Sabbath, the stupendous march
Öf vast eternity.

5 Lord, may that holier day
Dawn on thy servants' sight;
And purer worship may we pay
In heaven's unclouded light.

WHAT majesty and grace

Our debt paid upon the cross.


Through all the gospel shine!
'Tis God that speaks, and we confess
The doctrine most divine.

2 Down from his throne on high,
The mighty Saviour comes;
Lays his bright robes of glory by,
And feeble flesh assumes.

3 The debt that sinners owed,
Upon the cross he pays:

Then through the clouds ascends to God, 'Midst shouts of loftiest praise.

4 There our High Priest appears,
Before his Father's throne;
Mingles his merits with our tears,
And pours salvation down.

5 Great Sov'reign, we adore
Thy justice and thy grace,
And on thy faithfulness and power
Our firm dependence place.

1108 The solemn midnight cry.

THOU Judge of quick and dead,
Before whose bar severe,

With holy joy or guilty dread,
We all shall soon appear;
Our caution'd souls prepare
For that tremendous day,


And fill us now with watchful care, And stir us up to pray:

2 To pray and wait the hour,

That awful hour unknown, When, robed in majesty and power, Thoa shalt from heaven come down, The' immortal Son of man,

To judge the human race, With all thy Father's dazzling train, With all thy glorious grace.

3 To damp our earthly joys,

To' increase our gracious fears,
Forever let the archangel's voice
Be sounding in our ears
The solemn midnight cry,-

Ye dead, the Judge is come;
Arise, and meet him in the sky,
And meet your instant doom.
4 O may we all be found

Obedient to thy word, Attentive to the trumpet's sound, And looking for our Lord.

O may we thus ensure

A lot among the blest;

And watch a moment to secure

An everlasting rest.

[blocks in formation]

Myself, my residue of days,
I consecrate to thee.

2 Thy ransom'd servant, I
Restore to thee thine own;
And from this moment live or die,
To serve my God alone.

603 Morning: The day-star from on 134-d


WE lift our hearts to thee,

O Day-star from on high! The sun itself is but thy shade, Yet cheers both earth and sky. 2 O let thy rising beams

The night of sin disperse,-
The mists of error and of vice,
Which shade the universe.

3 How beauteous nature now;
How dark and sad before;
With joy we view the pleasing change,
And nature's God adore.

4 O may no gloomy crime
Pollute the rising day;

Or Jesus' blood, like evening dew,
Wash all the stains away.

5 May we this life improve,
To mourn for errors past;
And live this short revolving day
As if it were our last.

HEARTS of stone, relent, relent!

Break, by Jesus' cross subdued; See his body mangled, rent,


Stain'd and cover'd with his blood! Sinful soul, what hast thou done? Crucified the' eternal Son.

2 Yes, thy sins have done the deed;
Driven the nails that fix'd him there
Crown'd with thorns his sacred head;
Plunged into his side the spear;
Made his soul a sacrifice,
While for sinful man he dies.

3 Wilt thou let him bleed in vain?
Still to death thy Lord pursue?
Open all his wounds again,

And the shameful cross renew? No; with all my sins I'll part; Saviour, take my broken heart.
