3 TO JESUS, our atoning Priest,' TO JESUS, our superior King, Be everlasting power confess'd, And every tongue his glory sing. 4 Behold! on flying clouds he comes, And every eye shall see him move; Though with our sins we pierc'd him


He'll then display his pard'ning love. 5 The unbelieving world shall wail, While we rejoice to see the day: Come, Lord! nor let thy promise fail, Nor let thy chariots long delay.

50. Lamb. C. M.

Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. REV. v. 12.

COME, let us join our cheerful songs
With angels round the throne!
Ten thousand thousand are their

But all their joys are one.

2 "Worthy the Lamb that died," they cry, "To be exalted thus;"

"Worthy the Lamb," our lips reply, "For he was slain for us.

3 JESUS is worthy to receive

[ocr errors]

Honour and power divine;

And blessings more than we can give,
Be, Lord, for ever thine.


4 Let all that dwell above the sky,
And air, and earth, and seas, i
Conspire to lift thy glories high,
And speak thine endless praise!

5 Let all creation join in one
To bless the sacred name

Of Him that sits upon the throne,
And to adore the Lamb!

60 may I bear some humble part
In that immortal song!

Wonder and joy shall tune my heart,
And love command my tongue!

51. Lamb. S.M.

Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood, he entered once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.-HEB. ix. 12.


NOT all the blood of beasts,
On Jewish altars slain,

Could give the guilty conscience peace,
Or wash away the stain.

But CHRIST, the heavenly Lamb,

Takes all our sins away;

A sacrifice of.nobler name,

And richer blood than they.

3 My faith would lay her hand
On that dear head of thine,

While like a penitent I stand,
And there confess my sin.

4 My soul looks back to see
The burdens thou didst bear,
When hanging on th' accursed tree;
And hopes her guilt was there.


Believing, we rejoice

To see the curse remove;

We bless the Lamb with cheerful voice, And sing his bleeding love.

52. Lamb. L. M.

The love of CHRIST constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: and that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.-2 COR. v. 14, 15.

O COME, thou wounded Lamb of GOD!
Come wash us in thy cleansing blood,
Give us to know thy love, theu pain
Is sweet, and life or death is gain.

2 Take our poor hearts, and let them be
For ever clos'd to all but thee;
Seal thou our breasts, and let us wear
That pledge of love for ever there.
3 How can it be, thou heavenly King,
That thou should'st man to glory bring!
Make slaves the partners of thy throne,
And give them an immortal crown!
4 Ab, Lord! enlarge our scanty thought,
To know the wonders thou hast wrought;

Unloose our stamm'ring tongues to tell Thy love, immense, unsearchable. 5 First-born of many brethren, thou To thee both earth and heav'n must bow:

Help us to find our all in thee,
And thine in life and death to be.

53. Lamb. 8-7-7.

In the midst of the throne stood a Lamb. REV. v. 6.

HOPE in CHRIST our Lord possessing,
Let us raise a cheerful psalm:
Glory, honour, pow'r and blessing,
Be for ever to the Lamb!
In the midst of yonder throne,
Lo he stands, he reigus alone.

2 Praise the Lamb! his love unbounded
Is the theme of praise in heav'n:
On his death our hopes are founded;
For our sins his life was giv'n:
And we trust that by his blood
We are reconcil'd to God.

3 Praise the Lamb! ye saints, adore him,
You he saves from endless shame :
See how Angels fall before him,
How they triumph in his name;
His the sceptre, his the crown,
His yon bright eternal throne.

4 Praise the Lamb! repeat his praises, 'Tis a theme, ye saints, for

When our Lord to heav'n shall raise us,
There the subject we'll renew:
And in yonder glorious place,
We shall see the SAVIOUR's face.

5 [There, with all who liv'd as strangers
While ou earth, we hope to be:
Free from toil, from fear, from dangers,
Happy through eternity:

There we hope to see the Lamb!
And for ever praise his name.]

54. Lamb. L. M.

Behold the Lamb of GOD, which taketh away the sin of the world. JOHN i. 29.

BEHOLD the sin-atoning Lamb,
With wonder, gratitude, and love:
To take away our guilt and shame,
See him descending from above.

2 Our sins and griefs on him were laid;
He meekly bore the mighty load;
Our ransom-price he fully paid
In groans and tears, in sweat and blood.

3 To save a guilty world, he dies;
Sinners, behold the bleeding Lamb!
To him lift up your longing eyes,
And hope for mercy in his name.
