To him ascribed be
Honour and majesty,
Through all eternity:
Worthy the Lamb.

141. For his Love. 8-7-4.

And suddenly there was with the Angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising GOD.-LUKE ii. 13.

MIGHTY God! while Angels bless

May a sinner praise thy name? [thee, Lord of men, as well as Angels,

Thou art every creature's theme.
Hallelujah! Amen.

2 Lord of every land and nation,
"Ancient of eternal days,"
Sounded, through the wide creation,
Be thy just and lawful praise.
Hallelujah! Amen.

3"Brightness of the Father's glory,"
Shall thy praise unutter'd lie?
Scorn, my tongue, such guilty silence!
Sing the Lord, who came to die-
Hallelujah! Amen.

4 Did Archangels sing thy coming!

Did the Shepherds learn their lays. Shame would cover me, ungrateful,

Should my tongue refuse to praise. Hallelujah! Amen.

5 From the highest throne in glory,
To the cross of deepest woe,-
All to ransom guilty captives-
Flow, my praise, for ever flow.
Hallelujah! Amen.

142. For his unchangeable Love. 104th.

The mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed; saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee.-ISAIAH liv. 10.

IF JESUS is ours,

We have a true friend,
Whose goodness endures

The same to the end :
Our comforts may vary,
Our frames may decline:
We cannot miscarry,
Our aid is divine.

2 Though GOD may delay To show us his light, And heaviness may

Endure for a night;
Yet joy in the morning
Shall surely abound;
No shadow of turning
In JESUS is found.

3 The bills may depart,

And mountains remove :
But faithful thou art,
O fountain of love;

The Father hath graven
Our names on thy hands;
Our building in heaven
Eternally stands.

4 [A moment he hid

The light of his face,
Yet firmly decreed

To save us by grace ;
And, though he reprov'd us,
And still may reprove,
For ever he lov'd us,
And ever will love].

5 Then tune ev'ry string
TO JESUS's name!
With Angels we'll sing
The song of the Lamb:
Thee ev'ry believer

Shall joyfully praise,
Thou bountiful giver

Of glory and grace!

143. For his Love.


When he bringeth in the first begotten into the world he saith, And let all the Angels of God worship him. -HEBREWS i. 6.

HARK! ten thousand harps and voices,
Sound the notes of praise above!
JESUS reigns, and heav'n rejoices:
JESUS reigns, the God of love:
See, he fills yon azure throne !
JESUS rules the world alone.

2 [Well may Angels bright and glorious,
Sing the praises of the Lamb:
While on earth, be prov'd victorious;
Now, he bears a matchless name:
Well may Angels sing of him,
Ileav'n supplies no richer theme.]

3 Come, ye Saints, unite your praises,

With the Angels round his throne ;
Soon, we hope, our Lord will raise us
To the place where he is gone:
Meet it is that we should sing,
Glory, glory, to our King."


4 Sing how JESUS came from heaven, How he bore the Cross below: How all pow'r to him is given;

How he reigns in glory now: Tis a great and endless theme: O'tis sweet to sing of him!

5 [King of Glory, reign for ever, Thine an everlasting Crown: Nothing from thy love shall sever

Those, whom thou hast made thine Happy objects of thy grace, [own: Destin❜d to behold thy face.]

6 SAVIOUR, hasten thine appearing; Bring, O bring the glorious day; When, the awful summons hearing, Heaven and earth shall pass away:


Then, with golden harps, we'll sing"Glory, glory to our King.".

144. For his Love. 8-7-7. Praise ye the Lord.-PSALM CXiii. 1. LET us sing, for we have reason, Let us join with those above: Praise is never out of season:

Let us praise the God of love. We have cause indeed to sing: JESUS is our glorious King.

2 [He whom Angels view with wonder;
He whom Angels always sing;
He who wields the awful thunder.
Is himself our glorious King.
O! how blest his people are!
Blest who in his glory share.]
3 When we reach the full enjoyment
Of the state where sorrows end:
Praise will be our sweet employment:

We shall praise the Siuner's friend:
Him who wash'd us with his blood;
Say'd, and brought us near to GOD.
4 But how diff'rent then our praises

From the praise we offer now!
Well our coldness may amaze us,

When we think how much we owe :
But no coldness will remain,
When that glorious state we gain.
