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 be bore.
3 Ye pilgrims, on the road

To Zion's city, sing;
Rejoice ye in the Lamb of God,

In Christ, the eternal King.
4 Soon shall we hear him say,

Ye blessed children, come;
Soon will he call us bence 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.

C. M.

COME, let us who in Christ

To him, with joyful voices, give

The glory of his grace.

Of every sinner's heart:

Or force him to depart. 8 Through grace we hearken to thy voice, Yield to be saved from sin

; In sure and certain hope rejoice,

That thou wilt enter in.

4 Come quickly in, thou heavenly guesting

Nor ever hence remove;
But sup with us, and let the feast

Be everlasting love. 4 The Lamb worshipped on earth and in heaven

HOME, let us join our cheerful songs

With angels round the throne :
Ten thousand thousand are their tongues,

But all their joys are one. 2 Worthy the Lamb that died, they cry,

To be exulted thus:
Worthy the Lamb, our hearts reply,

For he was slain for us.
3 Jesus is worthy to receive

Honour and power divine;
And blessings more than we can give,

Be, Lord, forever thine.
4 The whole crention join in one,

To bless the sacred name
Of Him that sits upon the throne,

And to adore the Lamb. 5

L. M. Jesus reigns. WOME, let us tune our loftiest song,

And raise to Christ our joyful strain; Worship and thanks to Hini belong,

Who reigns, and shall*forever reign. 2 His sov'reign power our bodies made;

Our souls are his immortal brenth; And when his creatures sinn'd, he bled,

To save us from eternal death. 3 Burn every breast with Jesus' love;

Bound every heart with rapt'rous joy And saints on earth, with saints above,

Your voices in his praise employ.


4 Extol the Lamb with loftiest song,

Ascend for him our cheerful strain; Worship and thanks to Him belong, Who reigns, and shall forever reign.

C. M.
The glories of our King.
COME we that like the Saviour's name,

And joy to make it known,
The Sov’reign of your hearts proclaim,

And bow before his throne.
2 Behold your Lord, your Master, crown'd

With glories all divine :
And tell the wond'ring nations round,

How bright those glories shine.
8 When, in his earthly courts, we view

The glories of our King, We long to love as angels do,

And wish, like them, to sing. 4 And shall we long and wish in vain !

Lord, tench our songs to rise : Thy love can animate the strain,

And bid it reach the skies.

7 Joining the song of the Church triumphant, CING we the song of those who stand

Around the eternal throne, of every kindred, clime, and land,

A multitude unknown.
2 Life's poor distinctions vanish here;

To-day the young, the old,
Our Saviour and his flock, appear,

One shepherd and one fold.

Cry the redeemd above, Blessing and honour to obtain,

And everlasting love. 3 Worthy the Lamb, on earth we sing,

5th P. M. 4 lines Ts. Saints and angels ever praising God. CONGS of praise the angels sang,

Heaven with hallelujahs rang,
When Jehovah's work begun,
When he spake and it was done.
2 Songs of praise awoke the morn,
When the Prince of peace was born;
Songs of praise arose, when he
Captive led captivity,
3 Saints below, with heart and voice,
Still in songs of praise rejoice;
Learning here, by faith and love,
Songs of praise to sing above.
4 Borne upon their latest breath,
Songs of praise shall conquer death;
Then, amid eternal joy,
Songs of praise their powers employ.

L. M.
Tribute of praise to the Saviour.
JESUS, thou everlasting King,

Accept the tribute which we bring;
Accept thy well-deserved renown,
And wear our praises as thy crown.
2 Let every act of worship be
Like our espousals, Lord, to thee:
Like the blest hour, when from above
We first received the pledge of love.
3 The gladness of that happy day,
O may it ever, ever stay:
Nor let our faith forsake its hold,
Nor hope decline, nor love grow cold.
4 Let every moment, as it flies,
Increase thy praise, improve our joys,
Till we are raised to sing thy Name,
At the great supper of the Lamb.
