HYMN 2. C. M.
What endless glory shines !
For these celestial lines.
Exhaustless riches find ;
And lasting as the mind.
And yields a free repast ; Sublimer sweets than nature knows
Invite the longing taste. 4 Here the Redeemer's welcome voice
Spreads heavenly peace around; And life and everlasting joys
Attend the blissful sound.
My ever dear delight;
And still increasing light.
Be thou for ever near ;
HYMN 3. C. M.
New honours be address'd ;
And makes the nations blest.
2 He spake the word to Abr’am first,
His truth fulfils his grace ;
And learn his righteousness.
With all her diff'rent tongues ; And spread the honours of his name, In melody and songs.
HYMN 4. L. M.
First and Second Adam. Rom. v. 14. 1 Cor. xv. 21, 22.
LORD, what was man when made at first,
Adam, the offspring of the dust, That thou should'st set him and his race
But just below an angel's place !
And inake him Lord of all below;
And lay the fishes at his feet.
To crown the second Adam's state !
Who condescended to be born! 4 See him below his angels made,
See him in dust among the dead,
But He shall reign, with pow'r divine. 5 The world to come, redeem'd from all
The miseries that attend the fall,
HYMN 5. L. M.
Adorn’d with majesty and grace !
And wins the nations to his love. 2 At his right hand, our eyes behold
The queen array'd in purest gold !
Her robe of joy and righteousness.
He calls and seats her near his throne;
The idols of thy native state.
In thee, the fav’rite of his choice ;
For he's thy Maker and thy Lord. 5 O happy hour, when thou shalt rise
To his fair palace in the skies !
Each like a prince in glory reign.
Let every age his praises spread;
HYMN 6. Eights and Sevens Metre.
Born to set thy people free:
Let us find our rest in Thee.
2 Israel's strength and consolation,
Hope of all the saints thou art ; Dear desire of every nation,
Joy of every longing heart. 3 Born thy people to deliver ;
Born a child, and yet a king : Born to reign in us for ever,
Now thy gracious kingdom bring : 4 By thine own eternal spirit,
Rule in all our hearts alone ; By thine all-sufficient merit, Raise us to thy glorious throne.
HYMN 7. C. M.
Desire of all nations. Hag. ii. 7. Job. xiv. 15. Isa. xxvi. 8.
NFINITE excellence is thine,
Thou lovely Prince of Grace; Thine uncreated beauties shine
With never-fading rays.
Come bending at thy feet ;
In Thee their wishes meet.
Delights the church around; Sweetly the sacred odour's spread
Through all Immanuel's ground. 4 Millions of happy spirits live
On thine exhaustless store ;
And still Thou givest more.
They find their all in Thee :
Through all eternity. RIPPON'S Coll.
HYMN 8. L. M.
Universal Praise. Ps. lxvi. 4. Rev. v. 13. FROM all that dwell below the skies
Let the Creator's praise arise : Let the Redeemer's name be sung
Through ev'ry land, by ev'ry tongue. 2 Eternal are thy mercies, Lord;
Eternal truth attends thy word :
HYMN 9. C. M. Fountain opened. Zec. xiii. 1. Psa. xxxvi. 9. Isa, xii. 18. THI NHERE is a fountain fill'd with blood,
Drawn from Immanuel's veins; And sinners plung'd beneath that flood,
Lose all their guilty stains.
That fountain in his day ;
Wash all my sins away!
Shall never lose its power,
Be sav'd, to sin no more.
Thy flowing wounds supply, Redeeining love has been my theme,
And shall be till I die.
Lies silent in the grave,
I'll sing thy pow'r to save.
