And infant voices shall proclaim
Their early blessings on his name. 480 Kimbolton-p. 106.] L. M. ARM.inf the Lord, awake, awake!
Thine own immortal strength put on! With terror clothed, hell's kingdom shake,
And cast thy foes with fury down. 2 As in the ancient days appear!
The sacred annals speak thy fame; Be now omnipotently near,
To endless ages still the same. 3 By death and hell pursued in vain,
To thee the ransom'd seed shall come ; Shouting, their heavenly Sion gain,
And pass through death triumphant home. 4 The pain of life shall then be o'er,
The anguish and distracting care ; There sighing grief shall weep no more
And sin shall never enter there. 5 Where pure essential joy is found,
The Lord's redeem'd their heads shall raise, With everlasting gladness crown'd,
And fill'd with love, and lost in praise. 481 Kingswood-p. 277.] 12th P.M.76,76,78,76.
ESUS, from thy heavenly place,
Thy dwelling in the sky,
Our want of faith supply ;
And godliness with all its power ;
2 Let the Spirit of grace o'erflow
Our re-converted land :
And bow to thy command :
Our land's peculiar treasure prove ; Bless'd with piety sincere ;
Inspired with humble love. 482 Ascription—p. 229.] 7th P. M. 8 lines 7s. APPY soul, who sees the day,
of Thee, my Lord, (thou then wilt say :)
Thee will I for ever praise ; Though thy wrath against me burn'd,
Thou dost comfort me again;
Thou hast blotted out my sin.
Jesus my salvation is ;
Jesus is become my peace :
Ever merciful and just;
I will on his promise trust.
Just in righteousness divine ;
All he has, and is, is mine :
On his name whoe'er shall call,
Water from salvation's well ;
Praise shall your glad tongues employ,
While his streaming grace ye feel. Each to each, ye then shall say,
“Sinners, call upon his name ; O rejoice to see his day ;
See it, and his praise proclaim !" 5 Glory to his name belongs,
Great, and marvellous, and high : Sing unto the Lord your songs,
Cry, to every nation, cry: Wondrous things the Lord hath done,
Excellent his name we find; This to all mankind is known;
Be it known to all mankind !
Israel's HOLY ONE is HE !
Great is he, and dwells in thee.
While eternal ages roll, God delights in man to dwell,
Soul of each believing soul ! 483 Paris-p. 82.]
L. M. LORY to God, whose sovereign grace Call'd us to stand before his face,
And raised us into Abraham's sons. 2 The people that in darkness lay,
In sin and error's deadly shade, Have seen a glorious gospel-day,
In Jesus' lovely face display'd. 3 Thou only, Lord, the work hast done,
And bared thine arm in all our sight; Hast made the reprobates thine own,
And claim'd the outcasts as thy right.
4 Thy single arm, almighty Lord,
To us the great salvation brought ; Thy Word, thy all-creating Word,
That spake at first the world from naught. 5 For this the saints lift up their voice,
And ceaseless praise to thee is given; For this the hosts above rejoice
We raise the happiness of heaven. 6 For this, (no longer sons of night)
To thee our thankful hearts we give;
To thee we die, to thee we live.
Unite to praise thy love!
One God in persons Three ; And glorify the great I AM,
Through all eternity. 3 Thy kingdom come, with power and grace,
To every heart of man:
In all our bosoms reign.
Thy peace our passions bind ; And let us, in thy joy unknown,
The first dominion find.
But makes an end of sin ;
Into our souls bring in.
6 The kingdom of establish'd peace,
Which can no more remove;
485 Portland-p. 251.) 10th P. M. 8 lines 8s.
And peace upon earth be restored !
Appear our omnipotent Lord!
Didst stoop to redeem a lost race,
And reign in thy kingdom of grace.
All nature acknowledged thy birth;
And heaven was open’d on earth ;
The world was united to bless
Again in thy Spirit descend,
A kingdom that never shall end
And make the glad nations obey,
And bow the whole world to thy sway!
