2 To God the Son belongs

Immortal glory too,
Who bought us with his blood
From everlasting woe:
And now he lives,

And now he reigns,
And sees the fruit

Of all his pains.
3 To God the Spirit's name

Immortal worship give,
Whose new-creating Pow'r
Makes the dead sinner live;
His work completes

The great design,
And fills the soul

With joy divine. 4 Almighty God! to Thee

Be endless honours done,
The undivided Three,
And the mysterious One!
Where reasou fails

With all her pow'rs,
There faith prevails,

And love adores,

29. Praise to the Trinity. 8s. For through him we both have access by one Spirit

unto the Father. Eph. ii. 18.
O FATHER, thou fountain of love,

Flowing out to lost sinners below: 0. Jesus, sent down from above,

All blessings on us to bestow; 2 And, O thou blest Spirit of God,

Proceeding from Father and Son,
Now fix in our hearts thine abode,

Complete the salvation begun. 3 Jehovah! the great One in Three

Our Covenant God we adore;
With joy we'll ascribe unto thee

All glory and praise evermore.

30. For his Word. C.M.

Thou hast known the holy Scriptures, which are able to

make thee wise unto salvation through faith, which is
in Christ Jesus.--2 TIM. iii. 15.
FATHER of mercies, in thy word

What endless glory shines !
For ever be thy name ador’d

For these celestial lines.
2 Here springs of consolation rise,

To cheer the fainting mind: And thirsty souls receive supplies,

And sweet refreshment find.

3 When guilt, and terror, pain, and grief,

United rend the heart,
Here sinners meet divine relief,

And cool the raging smart.
4 Here the Redeemer's welcome voice

Spreads heav'nly peace around;
And life, and everlasting joys

Attend the blissful sound. 50 may these heav'nly pages be

My ever dear delight!
And still new beauties may I see,

And still increasing light:
6 Divine instructor, gracious Lord,

Be thou for ever near;
Teach me to love thy sacred word,
And view my Saviour there!

SECTION SECOND.

CHARACTERS OF CHRIST:

31. Advocate. C. M. Father, I will that they also, whom thợu hast given me, be with me, where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me.-Joux xyii. 24. AWAKE, sweet gratitude ! and sing

Th' ascended Saviour's love;
Sing how he lives to carry on

His people's cause above.
2 With cries and tears, be offered up

His bumble suit below;
But with authority he asks,

Enthrond in glory now.
3 For all that come to God by him,

Salvation he demands;
Points to their names upon his breast,

And spreads his wounded hands. 4 His sweet atoning sacrifice

Gives sanction to his claim:
“Father, I will that all my saints

6 Be with me where I am."
Eternal life, at his request,

To every saint is given:
Safety below, and, after death,

The pleuitude of heaven.

32. All in all. C.M.

Christ is all, and in all.-COL. iii. 11. COMPAR’D with Christ, in all beside

No comeliness I see; The one thing needful, gracious Lord,

Is to be one with thee.
2 The knowledge of thy dying love

Into my soul convey:
Thyself bestow! for thee alone,

My all in all, I pray.
3 Less than thyself will not suffice

My comfort to restore:
More than thyself I cannot erave;

And thou canst give no more. 4 Lov'd of my God, for him again

With grateful love I'd burn: Chosen of thee, e'er time began,

I'd choose thee in return.
5 Whate'er consists not with thy love,

O teach me to resign : *
I'm rich to all th' intents of bliss,

If thou, O God, art mine.

33. All in all. 78.

Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none úpon

earth that I desire besides thee.-PSALM lii. 25. JESU! meek, redeeming lamb, Thine and only thine I am:
