Worthy all bleffings to receive!
Worthy on high enthron'd to fit,
With ev'ry pow'r beneath thy feet!

Let angels found the facred name,
And ev'ry creature say amen.

Too our Redeemer's glorious name,
Awake the facred fong!
O'may his love (immortal fame!)
Tune ev'ry heart and tongue.

2 His love, what mortal thought can reach?
What mortal tongue display?
Imagination's utmoft ftretch
In wonder dies away.

3 He left his radiant throne on high;
Left the bright realms of blifs,

And came to earth to bleed and die !
Was ever love like this!

4 Dear Lord, while we adoring pay Our humble thanks to thee;

May ev'ry heart with rapture fay,
The Saviour di'd for me.

5 O may the fweet, the blissful theme,
Fill every heart and tongue;
Till ftrangers love thy charming name,
And join the facred fong.

JOY

OY to the world: the Lord is come;
Let earth receive her king:
Let ev'ry heart prepare him room,
And heav'n and nature fing.

z Joy to the earth, the Saviour reigns; Let men their fongs employ:

While fields and foods, rocks, hills and plains Repeat the founding joy.

3 No more let fins and forrows grow, Nor thorns infeft the ground;

He comes to make his bleffings flow
Far as the curfe is found.

4 He rules the world with truth and grace, And makes the nations prove,

The glories of his righteoufnefs.
And wonders of his love.

Ever glorying in his worth;

And his faints with him fhall reign;
In this hope they joyful fay,
Come Lord Jefus; come away.

HYMN CXCV. C. M. [WATTS'.]
Praife.

HOSANNA to the Prince of light,

That cloth'd himself in clay:

Enter'd the iron gates of death,
And tore the bars away.

2 Death is no more the king of dread
Since our Immanuel rofe;
He took the tyrant's fling away,
And fpoil'd our hellifh foes.

3 See how the conq'ror mounts aloft,
And to his Father flies,
With fears of honour in his flesh,
And triumph in his eyes.

4 Raife your devotion, mortal tongues,
To reach his bleft abode,

Sweet be the accents of your fongs,
To our incarnate God.

5 Bright angels, ftrike your loudeft ftrings,
Your fweeteft voices raise ;
Let heav'n and all created things,
Sound our Immanuel's praife.

FOR a fhout of facred joy,
To God the fov'reign King!

F

Let ev'ry land their tongues employ,
And hymns of triumph fing.

2 Jefus our God afcends on high,
His heav'nly guards around,
Attend him rifing thro' the sky,
With trumpet's joyful found.

3 While angels fhout and praise their King, Let mortals learn their ftrains :

Let all the earth his honours fing;
O'er all the earth he reigns.

4 Rehearse his praise with awe profound;
Let knowledge lead the fong;

Nor mock him with a folemn found
Upon a thoughtless tongue.

5 In Ifr'el ftood his ancient throne,
He lov'd that chofen race;

But now he calls the world his own,
And heathens tafte his grace.

6 The Gentile nations are the Lord's,

There Abra’m'sGod is known,

While pow'rs and princes, fhields and fwords,
Submit before his throne.
