5 [Look unto him, ye nations: own
Your God, ye fallen race;
Look, and be sav'd through faith alone,
Be justified by grace.

6 See all your sins on JESUS laid:
The Lamb of GOD was slain :
His soul was once an offering made
For fallen, sinful man.]

150. For Redemption. 8-7.

The number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. REV. v. 11, 12,


HARK, the notes of angels singing-
Glory, glory to the Lamb!"
All in heav'n their tribute bringing,
Raising high the SAVIOUR's name.

2 Ye, for whom his life is given,

Sacred themes to you belong:
Come, assist the choir of heaven:

Join the everlasting song.

3 Saints and angels thus united,
Songs imperfect still must raise;
Tho' despis'd on earth, and slighted
Jesus is above all praise.

4 See th' angelic hosts have crown'd him, JESUS fills the throne on high: Countless myriads, hov'ring round him With his praises rend the sky.

5 Fill'd with holy emulation,
Let us vie with those above :
Sweet the theme-a free salvation!
Fruit of everlasting love.

6 Endless life in him possessing,

Let us praise his precious name:
Glory, honour, power and blessing,
Be for ever to the Lamb.

151. For Redemption. C.M.

What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the HOLY GHOST, which is in you, which ye have of GOD, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify GOD in your body, and in your spirit, which are GoD's.-1 COR. vi. 19, 20.

WE'LLsing the praise of him, who gave
His precious life for us:

'Twas wonderful at all to save;
But more to do it thus.

2 How awful must our state have been,
When nothing but his blood,
Who gave us life, could make us clean,
And bring us back to GoD:

3 The more he suffer'd for our sake, The more his kindness is:

But O! what poor returns we make,
For grace and love like his?

4 [He might expect that we should give, Our hearts to him alone:

And, bought with blood, that we would As his, and not our own.] [live,

5 But we, alas! too oft forget
How great his kindness is:
And though redeem'd, we wander yet
From him who made us his.

6 [For this our hearts are cold and dead:
For this our eyes are dim:
The crown is fallen from our head,
Because we stray from him.]

7 Lord, we confess our shame, and mourn
That we have prov'd so base :
To thee again, to thee we turn:
O! save us by thy grace.

152. For Redemption. L.M.

Hereby perceive we the Love of GOD, because he laid down his life for us.-1 JOHN iii. 16.

LORD, when my thoughts delighted Amid the wonders of thy love: [rove The view revives my drooping heart, And bids invading fears depart.

2 Guilty and weak, to thee I fly,
On thy atoning blood rely,
And on thy righteousness depend:
My Lord, my SAVIOUR, and my friend.

3 Be all my heart, be all my days,
Devoted to thy single praise;
And let my glad obedience prove
How much I owe, how much I love.

153. For Redemption. 8-7-7.

For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to GOD by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.-ROM. v. 10.

LET us love, and sing, and wonder;

Let us praise the SAVIOUR's name!
He has hush'd the law's loud thunder;
He has quench'd mount Sinai's flame;
He has wash'd us in his blood;
He has brought us nigh to God.

2 Let us love the Lord that bought us, Pity'd us when enemies,

Call'd us by his grace, and taught us,
Gave us ears and gave us eyes:
He has wash'd us in his blood,
He presents our souls to GOD,

3 Let us sing, though fierce temptation
Threaten hard to bear us down;
JESUS is our strong salvation,
He will surely give the crown:

He who wash'd us in his blood,
Soon will bring us safe to GOD.

4 [Let us praise, and join the chorus, Of the saints enthron'd on high! Here they trusted him before us,

Now their praises fill the sky. Thou hast wash'd us in thy blood! Thou art worthy, Lamb of GOD!]

5 Yes, we praise thee, gracious SAVIOUR! Wonder, love, and bless thy name: Pardon, Lord, our poor endeavour!

Pity, for thou know'st our frame; Wash our pray'rs and songs with blood, For by thee we come to GOD!

154. For Redemption. 7s.

Praise ye the Lord. Praise ye the Lord from the heavens: praise him in the heights. Praise ye him all his angels: praise ye him all his hosts.-PSALM cxlviii. 1, 2.

SONS of GOD, triumphant rise,
Shout th' accomplish'd sacrifice;
Shout your sins in CHRIST forgiv'n,
Sons of GOD, and heirs of heav'n.

Ye that round our altars throng,
List'ning angels, join the song;
Sing with us, ye heav'nly pow'rs;
Pardon, grace, and glory ours!
