Hymn 124. s. M.

ET God the Father live
For ever on our tongues:
Sinners from his first love derive
The ground of all their songs.


2. Ye saints, employ your breath In honour of the son,

Who bought your souls from hell and death, By off'ring up his own.

3. Give to the spirit praise

Of an immortal strain, Whose light, and pow'r and grace conveys Salvation down to men.

4. While God the comforter
Reveals our pardon'd sin,
may the blood and water bear
The same record within.


5. To the great one in Three,
That seal this grace in heav'n,
The Father, Son, and Spirit, be
Eternal glory giv❜n.

Hymn 125. P. M.
GIVE immortal praise


For all my comforts here,
And better hopes above :
He sent his own Eternal son
To die for sins that man had done.

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.

Be endless honours done,
The undivided Three,

And the mysterious One: Where reason fails with all her pow'rs, There faith prevails, and love adores.

Hymn 126. c. M. holy, holy, holy Lord!

Be endless praise to thee! Supreme, essential One, ador'd In co-eternal Three.

2. Enthron'd in everlasting state,
Ere time its round began,
Who join'd in counsel to create
The dignity of man.

3. To whom Isaiah's vision shew'd,
The seraphs veil their wings,
While thee, Jehovah, Lord, and God,
Th' angelic army sings.

4. To thee, by mystic pow'rs on high Were humble praises given, When John beheld with favour'd eye, Th' inhabitants of heaven!

5. All that the name of creature owns,
To thee in hymns aspire ;
May we as angels on our thrones
For ever join the choir!

6. Hail, holy, holy, holy Lord!
Be endless praise to thee;
Supreme, essential One, ador'd
In co-eternal Three.

Hymn 127. c. M. 1. ATHER of glory, to thy name

Who dost an act of grace proclaim,
And bid us rebels live.

Who makes thine anger cease; Our lives he ransom'd with his own, And dy'd to make our peace.

3. To thy Almighty Spirit be Immortal glory given,

Whose influ'nce brings us near to thee, And trains us up for heaven.

4. Let men, with their united voice, Adore th' eternal God,

And spread his honours and their joys Thro' nations far abroad.

One general song to raise,
Let saints in earth and heav'n combine
In harmony and praise.

And echoes to the sky...

Thy sacred energy, and bless.

Not angel-tongues can tell
Thy love's extatic height,
The glorious joy unspeakable,
The beatific sight,.

Hymn 130. P. M.


HEE, father of men and angels we praise, Whose wonders are seen in nature and grace, Throughout thy creation whose goodness we prove, And boundless compassion and infinite love. 2. Thee, Jesus, the Son of God we confess, Whose passion alone hath purchas'd our peace; With cherubs before thee and seraphs we fall, And prostrate adore thee the Saviour of all. 3. O Spirit of might, of joy, and of love, Who guidest us right to mansions of love, Whose hallowed graces for heaven prepare; We pay thee our praises 'till glorify'd there. 4. There, there we shall see the substance divine, And fashion'd like thee transcendantly shine, The personal essence be bold to explain, And wrapt in thy presence eternally reign.

ATHER of our dying Lord,
Remember us for good;

Father, glorify thy Son;

Shew his truth, and pow'r and grace;
And send the promise down.

2. True and faithful witness, thou, O Christ! the spirit give.
