7 Thine is the kingdom, thine the pow'r Thy kingdom come; thy will be
O'er angels, and o'er men ;
The glory too for evermore
200. T. 166.
OUR Father, who in heaven art, Hallow'd be thy most blessed name;
XI. Of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
202. T. 22.
song shall bless the Lord of all, My praise ascend to his abode : Thee, Saviour, by that name I call, The great, supreme, the mighty God! 2 Without beginning or decline,
Object of faith, and not of sense; Eternal ages saw him shine,
He shines eternal ages hence. 3 As much, when in the manger laid, Almighty Ruler of the sky, As when the six days work he made Fill'd all the morning-stars with joy. 4 Of all the crowns Jehovah bears, Salvation is his dearest claim;
That gracious sound well-pleas'd he hears,
And owns Immanuel for his name. 5. A cheerful confidence I feel,
My well-plac'd hopes with joy I see, My bosom glows with heav'nly zeal To worship him who dy'd for me. 6 As man he pities my complaint,
His pow'r and truth are all divine; He will not fail, he cannot faint,
Salvation's sure and must be mine.
203.* T. 172.
THY majesty how vast it is!
And how immense the glory, Which thou, O Jesus, dost possess ! Both heav'n and earth adore thee. The numberless heavenly hosts laud thy name
Thy glory & might are transcendent; Ten thousands of angels thy praises proclaim,
Upon thee gladly dependent. 5 The Father's Equal, God the Son, With him thou ever reignest; Thou art partaker of his throne, And all things thou sustainest. Both angels and men view their Maker
The angels and elders before him fall
With accents melodious him praising; Unto the Lamb slain, and to him on the throne,
They render glory unceasing.
4 The church on earth in humble
For Christ hath redeem'd us by his
Out of ev'ry nation and kindred, And made us thereby kings and priests unto God,
To him thanksgiving be render'd."
On men pass final sentence: [dread,
The ransom'd with gladness will lift up their head,
And live with Jesus for ever.
204. T. 14.
O THE delights, the heav'nly joys,
2 Sweet majesty and awful love
At humble distance bow.
3 Princes to his imperial name
Bend their bright sceptres down:
4 Upon that dear majestic head
5 This is the Man, th' exalted Man,
205. T. 341.
2 Hail your dread Lord and ours, Dominions, thrones and pow'rs! Source of pow'r he rules alone:
Veil your faces, prostrate fall,
3 Justice and truth maintain
206.* T. 97.
THOU reign'st above on heaven's
The Father's Equal, God the Son;
That thou, Lord, madest, and redeem-
2 With awe and reverence 'fore thee,
JESUS, my Lord, my God!
The God supreme thou art, The Lord of hosts whose precious blood Is sprinkled on my heart.
2 Jehovah is thy name;
And thro' thy blood apply'd, Convinc'd and certify'd I am, There is no God beside.
3 Soon as the Spirit shows
That precious blood of thine,
4 Yea only he, who feels:
208.* T. 58.
12 He laid his glory by,
And dreadful pains endur'd,
4 And now he pleading stands
OUR gracious God be praised ever-7
That Jesus Christ, who all our sorrows bore,
To our hearts so clearly is manifested, That with conviction 'tis by us attested That he is God.
2 O blessed truth which with deep awe is heard,
Truth worthy evermore to be rever'd: To the man Christ Jesus, a name is given Above all names; all knees in earth
'Fore him mast bow.
3 Of this great truth we boldly witness bear,
And to mankind this doctrine will declare,
That he, who to save us assum'd our nature
5 He sees us willing slaves
To sin, and Satan's pow'r; But with an outstretch'd arm, he saves, In his appointed hour.
6 The Holy Ghost he sends
Our stubborn souls to move, To make his enemies his friends, And conquer them by love. The love of sin departs,
The life of grace takes place, Soon as his voice invites our hearts To rise and seek his face.
210. T. 595.
And suffer'd on the cross, is the Crea- HOSANNA to the Son
Of heav'n and earth.

PREPARE a thankful song
To the Redeemer's name !
His praises should employ each tongue, And ev'ry heart inflame.
Of David, and of God,
Who brought the news of pardon down,
2 To Christ, th' anointed King,
3 Children of God, who walk by faith,
4 Let ev'ry tribe, and ev'ry tongue
Unite in one harmonious
