Mix'd with those beyond the sky,
Shout, or silently adore ! 214 Bedford-p. 10.] C. M.
FAIL! holy, holy, holy Lord !
By all thy heavenly host adored,
By all thy church below. 2 One undivided Trinity
With triumph we proclaim; Thy universe is full of thee,
And speaks thy glorious name. 3 Thee, holy Father, we confess ;
Thee, holy Son, adore ;
We worship evermore.
Almighty God, receive!
Which angel choirs, and saints in light,
And saints embodied, give. 5 Three persons equally divine
We magnify and love : And both the choirs ere long shall join
To sing thy praise above. 6 Hail ! holy, holy, holy Lord,
(Our heavenly song shall be,) Supreme, essential One, adored
In co-eternal Three ! 215 Wilmington-p. 12.] C. M. A
THOUSAND oracles divine
Their common beams unite; That sinners may with angels join
To worship God aright:
By all the hosts above ;
Through endless ages love. 3 Triumphant host! they never cease
To laud and magnify
Whose glory fills the sky:
When God himself imparts, And the whole Trinity descends
Into our faithful hearts. 5 By faith the upper choir we meet,
And challenge them to sing Jehovah, on his shining seat,
Our Maker and our King. 6 But God made flesh is wholly ours,
And asks our noblest strain ;
The Father of celestial powers,
The Friend of earth-born man !
With rapturous amaze
For heaven's superior praise !
For us his crown resign'd;
He died for all mankind ! 216 Plymouth Dock-p.148.] 1st P.M.6 lines 8 3.
Whom one all-perfect God we owr,
Thy various offices make known ;
And draw, and sprinkle us, and seal,
Thou dost eternal life reveal;
That thou art pure essential love,
Of the three witnesses above ;
in love renew'd,
Stamp'd with the triune character ;
217 Shirland—p. 135.] S. M.
At whose supreme decree Our body rose, a breathing clod,
Our souls sprang forth from thee : 2 For this thou hast design'd,
And form'd us man for this ;
In thee our endless bliss.
Surrey-p. 108.] L. M. Y soul, through my Redeemer's care, My eyes from tears of dark despair,
My feet from falling into hell. 2 Wherefore to him my feet shall run;
My eyes on his perfections gaze : My soul shall live for God alone,
And all within me shout his praise.
THE LORD'S SUPPER.
219 Minorca—p. 161.] Ist P. M. 6 lines 8s. that sad, memorable night,
, He left his death-recording rite:
He took, and bless'd, and brake the bread; And gave his own their last bequest, And thus his love's intent express'd :
2 " Take, eat, this is my body, given
To purchase life and peace for you,
Do this my dying love to show :
To crown the sacramental feast,
And gave to them what he had blest : " And drink ye all of this, (he said,) In solemn memory of the dead. 4 “ This is my blood, which seals the new
Eternal cov’nant of my grace : My blood, so freely shed for you,
For you and all the sinful race:
The bleeding Saviour's name,
And eat the paschal Lamb:
At Salem's hallow'd place,
Shall gain his largest grace.
Our every want supplies,
And share his sacrifice;
Who here his passion show,
Shall all his gifts bestow.
