6 Because when we forsook Thy ways,
Nor kept Thy holy will,
But gracious Father still :
But Thou hast not forgot ; Because we have forsaken Thee,
But Thou forsakest not:
6 Because, O Lord, Thou lovedst us
With everlasting love;
That we might live above;
Thou gav'st the hopes of heaven;
because we much have sinn'd, And much have been forgiven.
THE LORD JESUS CHRIST-HIS
Rev. v. 13. C. M. TOPLADY. TE sing to Thee, Thou Son of God,
We praise Thee, Son of Man, whose blood
Redeemed our fallen race.
The Lamb for sinners slain :
Worthy o'er both to reign.
Through heaven's extended coasts; Hail, holy, holy, holy Lord
of glory and of hosts !
4 The prophets' goodly fellowship,
In radiant garments dress'd,
The fulness of Thy rest.
Thy righteous praise proclaim: The martyred army glorify
Thine everlasting name. 6 Throughout the world Thy churches join
To call on Thee, their Head, Brightness of Majesty Divine,
Who every power hast made.
To sing Thy precious blood.
Thou holy Lamb of God!
2 Cor. iv. 6. L. M. WATTS 1
to the Lord a noble song ! Awake, my soul; awake, my tongue; Hosanna to th' Eternal Name,
And all His boundless love proclaim. 2 See where it shines in Jesus' face,
The brightest image of His grace;
Has all His mightiest works outdone.
Proclaim the wise and powerful God:
Sparkle in every rolling star.
The noblest labour of Thy hands;
5 Grace ! 'tis a sweet, a charming theme;
My thoughts rejoice at Jesus' name :
Ye heavens, reflect it to the ground. 6 O may I live to reach the place
Where He unveils His lovely face;
256 Rev. v. 12.
1 THAT equal honours shall we bring
When all the notes that angels sing
Are far inferior to Thy name ? 2 Worthy is He who once was slain,
The Prince of Peace who groaned and died; Worthy to rise, and live, and reign
At His Almighty Father's side.
Who stood condemn'd at Pilate's bar;
Though He was charg'd with madness here. 4 All riches are His native right,
Yet He sustained amazing loss;
Who left His weakness on the cross. 5 Honour immortal must be paid,
Instead of scandal and of scorn ;
And a bright crown without a thorn. 6 Blessings for ever on the Lamh,
Who bore the curse for wretched men:
Heb. i. 3. 188.8.131.52.8.8. CONDER. HOU art the Everlasting Word,
God manifestly seen and heard,
And Heaven's Beloved One. Worthy, O Lamb of God, art Thou,
That every knee to Thee should bow. 2 In Thee most perfectly expressed,
The Father's glories sbine : of the full Deity possessed,
That every knee to Thee should bow. 3 True image of the Infinite,
Whose essence is concealed ; Brightness of uncreated light;
The heart of God revealed. Worthy, O Lamb of God, art Thou,
That every knee to Thee should bow. 4 Yet, loving Thee, on whom His love
Ineffable doth rest,
As One with Thee, are bless'd.
That every knee to Thee should bow. 5 Throughout the universe of bliss,
The centre Thou, and sun.
To Heaven's Beloved One:
Phil. ii. 6. L. M. WATTS. RIGHT King of glory, dreadful God!
To Thee we lift an humble thought,
2 Thy power bath form’d, Thy wisdom sways,
All nature with a sovereign word;
The will of their superior Lord.
Stand round the glorious Deity ;
Pretends comparison with Thee ? 4 Yet there is One of human frame,
Jesus, arrayed in flesh and blood,
A full equality with God.
With equal honours be adored ;
Heb. i. 3. 8.7. ROBINSON. 1 MS
[IGHTY God, while angels.bless Thee,
May a mortal lisp Thy name?
Thou art every creature's theme. 2 Lord of every land and nation,
Ancient of eternal days,
Be Thy just and lawful praise. 3 For the grandeur of Thy nature,
Grand beyond a seraph's thought; For created works of power,—
Works with skill and kindness wrought; 4 For Thy providence that governs
Through Thine empire's wide domain, Wings an angel, guides a sparrow;
Blessed be Thy gentle reign.
