2 Come, tune afresh your golden lyres,
HYMN 473. C. M. St. Ann's. [*]
Thy vast, thy boundless praise.
3 Not death itself shall stop my song,
4 There shall my lips in endless praise
The theme demands an angel's tongue,
HYMN 474. 7s & 6s. Amsterdam. [*]
1 PRAISE the Lord, who reigns above,
And keeps his courts below: Praise him for his boundless love, And all his greatness show.
2 Praise him for his noble deeds,
Praise him for his matchless power: Him, from whom all good proceeds,
Let earth and heaven adore. 3 Publish, spread to all around
The great Immanuel's name;
Him, Prince of Peace proclaim.
5 Him, in whom they move and live,
6 Hallowed be his name beneath, As in heaven on earth adored; Praise the Lord in every breath,
Let all things praise the Lord. PRATT'S COL.
1 ON Judah's plain, the minstrel lyre
Is quenched, and sorrow veils the night;-
2 'Tis Bethlehem's star; the holy gem That hailed the Godhead from the skies; 'Tis Bethlehem's star! the diadem That tells the conqueror shall rise: He rises-and the golden choir Of angel minstrels wakes the song. GOULD'S CHURCH HARMONY.
Select Hymn, p. 657.
HARK! what mean those holy voices, &c.
WITH darkness whelmed, in error lost,
GOULD'S CH. HARM.
SHOUT the glad tidings, exultingly sing,
1 DAUGHTER of Zion, awake from thy sadness! Awake! for thy foes shall oppress thee no more; Bright o'er thy hills dawns the day-star of gladness, Arise! for the night of thy sorrow is o'er.
2 Strong were thy foes, but the arm that subdued them, And scattered their legions, was mightier far; They fled like the chaff from the scourge that pursued
Vain were their steeds and their chariots of war.
3 Daughter of Zion, the power that hath saved thee, Extolled with the harp and the timbrel should be: Shout! for the foe is destroyed that enslaved thee; The oppressor is vanquished, and Zion is free. HANDEL AND HAYDN AND ANC. LYRE.
Select Hymn, p. 729.
HARK, the song of jubilee, &c.
O THOU, whose power o'er moving worlds presides
GOULD'S CH. HARM,
HAIL, hail, sweet cherub, charity,
'Tis thou canst blend in misery's cup,
Before the footstool of thy throne:
We only render back thine own.
1 TIME is winging us away
2 Youth and vigour soon will flee, Blooming beauty lose its charms; All that's mortal soon shall be
Enclosed in death's cold arms. 3 But the Christian shall enjoy Health and beauty soon, above, Far beyond the world's alloy, Secure in Jesus' love.
1 THE hill of Zion yields
Or walk the golden streets.
2 Then let our songs abound,
THE Lord is in his holy temple; let the earth keep silence before him.

PRAISE ye the Lord, glorify him for ever. Sons of Zion, come before him; bring the cymbal, bring the harp. High in glory, lo! he's seated; see the King, he sits in state. Sons of Zion, come before him; sound the lute and strike the harp. IBID.
HOLY, Holy, Holy, Lord God of Sabaoth; heaven and earth are full of the majesty of thy glory. Glory be to thee, O Lord Most High. IBID.
ONE thing have I desired of the Lord, which I will require; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the fair beauty of the Lord, and to visit his temple. IBID.
O SING unto the Lord a new song; let the congregation of the saints praise him. IBID.
O GIVE thanks unto the Lord, for his mercy endureth for ever.
