5. To thee, dear Lord, our flesh and soul
We joyfully resign:
For we are doubly thine.
The busines of our days.
Hymn 88. P. M.
Your God and king adore ;
And triumph evermore !
Rejoice aloud, ye saints, rejoice.
The God of truth and love;
He took his seat above;
He rules o’er earth and heav'n;
Are to our Jesus given:
Shall all our sins destroy,
With pure seraphic joy ;
Jesus, the Judge, shall come,
To their eternal home;
Hymn 89. c.'m.
9, 10, 12.
Amidst his father's throne!
And songs before unknown. 2. Let elders worship at his feet,
The church adore around, With vials full of odours sweet,
And harps of sweeter sound. 3. These are the prayers of the saints,
And these the hymns they raise: Jesus is kind to our complaints,
He loves to hear our praise. 4. Now to the Lamb that once was slain,
Be endless blessings paid; Salvation, glory, joy, remain
Forever on thy head.
Hast set the pris’ners free,
And we shall reign with thee.
Are put beneath thy power; Then shorten these delaying days,
And bring the promis'd hour.
Hymn 90. c. M. CHRAST JESUS, the Lamb of God, worshipped by all
the Creation, Rev. v. 11, 12, 13.
With angels round the throne.
2.“ Worthy the Lamb that died," they cry,
6 To be exalted thus :" “ Worthy the Lamb," our lips reply,
For he was slain for us. 3. Jesus is worthy to receive
Honour and pow'r divine;
Be, Lord, forever thine.
And air, and earth, and seas, Conspire to lift thy glories high,
And speak thine endless praise. 5. The whole creation join in one,
To bless the sacred name
the throne, And to adore the Lamb,
Hymn 91. c. M.
The glories of the place,
Of his o'erflowing grace!
Sit smiling on his brow,
At humble distance bow.
Bend their bright sceptres down; Dominions, thrones, and pow'rs rejoice
To see him wear the crown.
Through ev'ry heav'nly street,
Submissive at his feet.
5. This is the man, th' exalted man,
Whom we, unseen, adore ;
Our hearts shall love him more.
We long to leave our clay ;
Hymn 92. c. M.
Let angels prostrate fall !
And crown him Lord of all.
Who from the altar call,
And crown him Lord of all. 3. Ye chosen seed of Isr'el's race,
A remnant weak and small,
And crown him Lord of all. 4. Ye Gentile sinners, ne'er forget
The wormwood and the gall, Go lay your trophies at his feet,
And crown him Lord of all. 5. Babes, men, and sires, who know his love,
Who feel your sins and thrall, Now join with all the host above,
And crown him Lord of all. 6. Let ev'ry kindred, ev'ry tribe,
On this terrestrial ball, To him all majesty ascribe,
And crown him Lord of all.
7. O that with yonder sacred throng
We at his feet may fall..
Hymn 93. L.M. 1. OW let us raise our cheerful strains,
And join the blissful choir above ; There our exalted Saviour reigns,
And there they sing his wond'rous love. 2. While seraphs tune immortal song,
O may we feel the sacred flame ; And every heart and every tongue
Adore the Saviour's glorious name. 3. Jesus, who once upon the tree
In agonizing pains expir'd ; Who dy'd for rebels yes, 'tis he!
How bright! how lovely! how admir'd ! 4. Jesus, who dy'd that we might live,
Dy'd in the wretched traitor's place j; O what returns can mortals give,
For such immeasurable grace! 5. Were universal nature ours,
And art with all her boasted store ; Nature and art with all their
powers, Would still confess the off'rer poor ! 6. Yet tho’ for bounty, so divine,
We ne'er can equal honours raise, Jesus, may all our hearts be thine,
And all our tongues proclaim thy praise,
7. THE ADVOCACY OF CHRIST.
