3 Proclaim - Salvation from the Lord
For wretched, dying men;
With an immortal pen.
The mighty promise shines :
of darkness raze Those everlasting lines.
250. C. M. To be ashamed of Jesus, is absurd and dangerous. 1 IS there on earth a nobler name
Than Jesus to be found ? Who can assert a higher claim,
Or more with truth abound? 2 The Son of God adorn'd with grace,
Commissioned from above, He bears to our rebellious race
The messages of love.
3 Behold his gentle spirit feel
The sufferings of mankind;
Of body and of mind.
How pure the life he led!
And we disown our Head ?
5 Forbid it, Lord! nor let us yield
To this unworthy shame;
Rejoice in Jesus' name.
€. M. Asking the Way to Zion. Jer. i. 5. 1 INQUIRE, ye pilgrims, for the way
That leads to Zion's hill;
With a determin'd will.
Your pious march to join ;
Of faith and love divine.
And seek his favour there,
And pour our fervent prayer.
In everlasting bands;
With eager hearts and hands.
The covenant of his grace;
Its memory efface. 6 Thus may our rising offspring haste
To see their father's God;
Their youthful feet have trod.
252. C. M.
Christ's Second Advent. 1 HE comes ! Jehovah comes to bless
The nations as their God,
And spread his power abroad.
2 The christian world in darkness lies,
By falsehood over-run;
And clouds have veil'd the sun.
3 But lo! the mighty God appears ;
On clouds behold him ride;
And cheer his mourning bride. 4 Now sacred love with mildest rays
In Zion's land shall rise;
And brighten all the skies. 3 Now truth shall chace the clouds away,
And falsehood reign no more;
Shall shine from shore to shore.
1 THE morning dawns; xelestial light
Dispels the gloomy shades of night;
And love, celestial love, shall reign. 2 The heavenly Sun, the Lord our God,
Beams his refulgent rays abroad:
And spread his truth from pole to pole. 3 Now nations, barb'rous, rude and blind,
In Jesus shall salvation find :
4 Thus every land and clime shall hear
The Lord is God, his name revere ;
254. C. M.
A Hymn of Praise.
How rich thy bounties are !
Thy goodness to declare:
What sweeter mercy smiles,
And every fear beguiles !
To Thee our thanks shall rise,
Or evening veils the skies.
Thy praise shall tune our breath
Shall gild the shades of death.
In sweet seraphic lay,
Through an eternal day.
255. C. M.
Not ashamed of Jesus. 1 JESUS, and shall it ever be,
A mortal man ashamed of Thee? Ashamed of Thee, whom angel's praise, Whose glories shine through endless days?
2 Asham'd of Jesus ! sooner far
Let evening blush to own a star ;
O'er this benighted soul of mine. 3 Asham'd of Jesus ! just as soon
Let midnight be asham’d of noon; "Tis midnight with my soul till he,
Bright morning star, bids darkness flee. 4 Asham'd of Jesus ! that dear friend
On whom my hopes of heaven depend?
That I no more adore his name, 5 Asham’d of Jesus ! yes I may
When I've no guilt to wash away;
No fear to quell, no soul to save.
my glory be, That Christ is not ashamed of me. 7 His institutions will I prize,
Take up the cross, the shame despise-
And now may
Jesus, the Sun of Heaven. 1 JESUS, thou Sun of love divine,
Thy rays through boundless nature shine;
