Sin fubdued, death destroy'd, man redeemed,
These are glorious works divine.

3 People, nations, tongues and kindreds !
Hail, all hail the mighty God:
Praise Jehovah ftrong in battle:
Shout the garment roll'd in blood.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
High hofannas fhout abroad.

The Truth and Faithfulness of God.
YE
E humble faints, proclaim abroad,
The honors of a faithful God,
How jul and true are all his ways,
How much above your higheft praife!

2 The words his facred lips declare,
Of his own mind the image bear:
What should him tempt, from frailty free,
Bleft in his felf-fufficiency?

3 He will not his great felf deny :

A God all truth can never lie:

As well might he his being quit,
As break his oath, or word forget.

4 Let frighten'd rivers change their courfe,
Or backward haften to their fource
Swift thro' the air let rocks be hurl'd,
And mountains like the chaff be whirl'd,

5 Let fun and fears forget to rife,
Or quit their ftations in the fkies;
Let Heav'n and earth both pass away,
Eternal truth fhall ne'er decay.

6 True to his word, God gave his Son,
To die for crimes which men had done;
Bleft pledge! he never will revoke,
A figle promise he has spoke.

Let earth and fkies reply,
Praise ye his name:
His love and grace adore,
Who all our forrows bore ;
Sing aloud evermore,
Worthy the Lamb.

2 Jefus, our Lord and God,
Bore fin's tremendous load,
Praise ye his name:
Tell what his arm hath done,
What spoils from death he won ;
Sing his great name alone;
Worthy the Lamb.

3 While they around the throne,
Cheerfully join in one,
Praifing his name :

Thofe who have felt his blood
Sealing their peace with God,
Sound his dear fame abroad,
Worthy the Lamb.

4 Join, all ye ransom'd' race, Our holy Lord to blefs; Praise ye his name;

In him we will rejoice,
And make a joyful noise,
Shouting with heart and voice,
Worthy the Lamb.

5 What tho' we change our place,
Yet we fhall never ceafe
Praising his name ;
To him our fongs we bring,
Hail him our gracious King,
And without ceafing fing,
Worthy the Lamb.

6 Then let the hosts above,
In realms of endless love,
Praise his dear name :
To him afcribed be
Honor and majesty,
Thro' all Eternity;
Worthy the Lamb.

The Pardoning God.

GREA

REAT God of wonders! all thy ways Are matchlefs, godlike, and divine ;. But the fair glories of thy grace More godlike and unrival'd fhine : Who is a pard'ning God like thee? Or who has grace fo rich and free? 2 Crimes of fuch horror to forgive, Such guilty daring worms to ípare, This is thy grand prerogative, And none fhall in the honor fhare, Who is a pard'ning God like thee? Or who has grace lo rich and free ?

3 Angels and men, refign your claim
To pity, mercy, love and grace;
Thefe glorious crown Jehovah's name
With an incomparable blaze.
Who is a pard'ning God like thee?
Or who has grace fo rich and free?
4 In wonder loft, with trembling joy,'
We take the pardon of our God,
Pardon, for crimes of deepest dye,
A pardon feal'd with Jefus' blood.
Who is a pard'ning God like thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?

HYMN CCXLI. C. M. [DODDRIDGE.]
Pardon fpoken by Chrift.

MY Saviour, let me hear thy voice

Pronounce the words of peace! And all my warmeft pow'rs fhall join To celebrate thy grace.

2 With gentle fmiles call me thy child, And fpeak my fins forgiv'n :

The accents mild fhall charm mine ear, All like the harps of heav'n.

3 Cheerful, where'er thy hand fhall lead,
The darkest path I'll tread ;
Cheerful I'll quit thefe mortal fhores,
And mingle with the dead.

4 When dreadful guilt is done away,

No other fears we know ;
That hand, which featters pardon down,
Shall crowns of life bestow.

Let the rude barbarian fee,
That divine and glorious conqueft,
Once obtain❜d on Calvary;

Let the gofpel, let the gospel, let the gospel, Loud refound from pole to pole.

2 Kingdoms wide that fit in darkness,
Let them have the glorious light,
And from eaftern coaft to western,
May the morning chafe the night, [demption,
And redemption, and redemption, and re-
Freely purchas'd, win the day.

3 May the glorious day approaching,
From eternal darkness dawn,
And the everlasting gofpel
Spread abroad, thy holy name;
All the borders, all the borders, all the bord-
Of the great Immanuel's land.

Win and conquer, never ceafe ;
May thy lafting wide dominion,
Multiply, and till increase;

Sway thy fceptre, fway thy fceptre, fway thy Saviour, all the world around.
