3 Love's mysterious work is done;
Greet we now th' atoning SoN;
Heal'd and quicken'd by his blood,
Join'd to CHRIST, aud one with God.
4 CHRIST, of all our hopes the seal,
Peace divine in him we feel;
Everlasting life is won,
Glory is on earth begun.

5 CHRIST to laud in songs divine,
Angels and archangels join ;
We with them our voices raise,
Echoing thy eternal praise.

6 Holy, holy, holy Lord,

Live by heav'n and earth ador'd;
Full of thee, they ever cry,
Glory be to God most high!

155. For Redemption. L. M.

Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.-PSALM lxiii. 7.

AWAKE, my soul, in joyful lays, And sing thy great redeemer's praise; He justly claims a song from me, His loving-kindness, Ŏ how free! 2 He saw me ruin'd in the fall, Yet lov'd me notwithstanding all; He sav'd me from my lost estate, His loving-kindness, O how great!


3 Tho' num'rous hosts of mighty foes,
Tho' earth and hell my way oppose,
He safely leads my soul along,
His loving-kindness, O how strong!
4 [Often I feel my sinful heart
Prone from my SAVIOUR to depart;
But tho' I oft have him forgot,
His loving-kindness changes not.]
5 Soon shall I pass the gloomy vale,
Soon all my mortal powers must fail;
O! may my last expiring breath
His loving-kindness sing in death!
6 Then let me mount and soar away
To the bright world of endless day;
And sing, with rapture and surprise,
His loving-kindness in the skies.

156. For Redemption, 8-7-4. Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory.—REV. iv. 11. GLORY, glory everlasting

Be to him who bore the cross !
Who redeem'd our souls by tasting
Death, the death deserv'd by us:
Spread his glory,

Who redeem'd his people thus. 2 JESU's love is love unbounded, Without measure, without end; Human thought is here confounded, 'Tis too vast to comprehend;

Praise the SAVIOUR;

Magnify the sinner's Friend.

3 While we hear the wond'rous story Of the SAVIOUR's cross and shame, Sing we "Everlasting glory

Be to GoD and to the Lamb."
Saints and angels,

Give ye glory to his name.

157. For Salvation. C.M.

My heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.-PSALM Xxiii. 5. SALVATION! Oh, the joyful sound! 'Tis pleasure to our ears;

A sov'reign balm for ev'ry wound,
A cordial for our fears.

2 Bury'd in sorrow and in sin,
At hell's dark door we lay;
But we arise by grace divine,
To see a heav'nly day.

3 Salvation! let the echo fly

The spacious earth around;
While all the armies of the sky
Conspire to raise the sound.

4 Salvation! O thou bleeding lamb!
To thee the praise belongs:
Salvation shall inspire our hearts,
And dwell upon our tongues.

158. For Salvation. 8-7-4.

The Lord is my light and my salvation.-PSALM XXvii. 1.

O THOU GOD of our salvation!
JESUS now enthron'd in light :
Look from thine exalted station,
Look from yonder glorious height:
Save thy people:

Put thine enemies to flight.

2 Thou wast once like us assaulted:
Once "a Man of Sorrows" here:
Now to heav'n with joy exalted,
Thou art first and highest there:
Yet thy people

Know their pray'rs will reach thine


3 Sing, ye saints, for you have reason:
JESUS is your glorious chief:
In affliction's sharpest season,
Think on this, 'twill bring relief:
Sing with gladness:

JESUS knows and shares your grief.

4 Earthly things are transitory;
Empty all the world can yield:
JESUS gives us grace and glory:
JESUS is our sun and shield.
Fair our portion:

Our's a cup with blessings fill'd.

159. For Salvation.


O come, let us sing unto the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.-PSALM XCV. 1.

POOR sinner, come, cast off thy fear,
And raise thy drooping head;
Come, sing, with all poor sinners here,
JESUS who once was dead.

2 Salvation sing: no word more meet
To join to JESU's name :

Let ev'ry thankful tongue repeat
"Salvation to the Lamb."

3 Saints, from the garden to the cross,
Your conq'ring Lord pursue;
Who dearly to redeem your loss,
Groan'd, bled, and died for you.
4 Now reigns victorious over death
The glorious great I AM;
Let ev'ry soul repeat with faith,
"Salvation to the Lamb!"

160. For Salvation. S. M.

And they sing the Song of Moses the servant of GOD, and the Song of the Lamb, saying, "Great and marvellous are thy works, LORD GOD ALMIGHTY; just and true are thy ways, thou King of Saints.-REV.

xv. 3.

AWAKE, and sing the song

Of Moses and the Lamb;

Wake every hear, and every tongue
To praise the SAVIOUR'S name.
