Through every land, by every tongue. 2 Eternal are thy mercies, Lord;

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.

In Jesus, God with us, display'd; How bright thy beaming glories shine!

How vast thy love, how great thy grace !

B 1. A - wake, and sing the song
4 Thy temple is the arch
Of yon unmeasured sky; Thy Sabbath, the stupendous march
Of vast eternity. 5 Lord, may that holier day
Dawn on thy servants' sight; And purer worship may we pay
In heaven's unclouded light.
2 The song of Moses and the Lamb. A
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;
În Christ, the eternal King.
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.

HAT majesty and grace
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,
Our firm dependence place.
The eternal Sabbath. 148-C.
The day divinely given,
And earth draws near to heaven. 2 Lord, in this sacred hour,
Within thy courts we bend, And bless thy love, and own thy power,
Our Father and our Friend. 3 But thou art not alone
In courts by mortals trod; Nor only is the day thine own
When man draws near to God :
And Spirit, One in Three, Be glory, as it was, is now,
And shall forever be.
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.
1108 The solemn midnight cry.
143-6. THO PHOU Judge of quick and dead,
Before whose bar severe, With holy joy or guilty dread,
We all shall soon appear ;
For that tremendous day,
And stir us up to pray:
That awful hour unknown,
Thoa shalt from heaven come down,
To judge the human race,
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.
A lot among the blest;
An everlasting rest.
603 Morning: The day-star from on 134-1
high. WE CE 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;
Wash all the stains away. 5 May we this life improve,
To mourn for errors past;
As if it were our last.
And Spirit, One in Three, Be glory, as it was, is now,
And shall forever he.
3 Faith cries out, It is the Lord,
Let him do as seems him good! Be thy holy name adored ;
Take the gift awhile bestow'd : Take the child no longer mine : Thine he is, forever thine.
The Light of Life. 2 Dark and cheerless is the morn,
Unaccompanied by thee;
Till thy mercy's beams I see:
Pierce the gloom of sin and grief;
Scatter all my unbelief: More and more thyself display, Shining to the perfect day. 637
Death of a child. WH THEREFORE should I make my moan,
Now the darling child is dead ?
He to paradise is fled:
God recalls the precious loan;
From my bosom to his own: Surely what he wills is best; Happy in his will I rest.
176-6. HEA EARTS of stone, relent, relent!
Break, by Jesus' cross subdued ;
Stain'd and cover'd with his blood i
Driven the nails that fix'd him there
Plunged into his side the spear;
Still to death thy Lord pursue ?
And the shameful cross renew? No; with all my sins I'll part; Saviour, take my broken heart.
