5 The whole creation join in one,

To bless the sacred name of Him that sits upon the throne,

And to adore the Lamb.

373 Rev. I. 17, 18.

O

C. M. WATTS.
THE delights, the heavenly joys,

The glories of the place,
Where Jesus sheds the brightest beams

Of His o'erflowing grace!
2 Sweet majesty and awful love

Sit smiling on His brow;
And all the glorious ranks above

At humble distance bow.
3 Princes to His Imperial Name

Bend their bright sceptres down ;
Dominions, thrones, and powers rejoice

To see Him wear the crown.
4 Archangels sound His lofty praise

Through every heavenly street,
And lay their highest honours down

Submissive at His feet.
5 Those soft, those blessed feet of His,

That once rude iron tore,
High on a throne of light they stand,

And all the saints adore.
6 His head, the dear majestic head,

That cruel thorns did wound,
See what immortal glories shine,

And circle it around.
7 This is the Man, th' exalted Man,

Whom we unseen adore ;
But when our eyes behold His face,

Our hearts shall love Him more.

374 Heb. 1. 3, 4.

8.7. ROBINSON, 1 RIGHTNESS of the Eternal Glory,

Image of our God expressid, Jesus, let Thy works adore Thee,

God supreme, for ever bless'd. Still upheld by their Creator,

Every work His power displays; Lord of universal nature,

Take the universal praise. 2 From His heavenly throne descended,

Son of God, and Son of Man; See Him on a cross suspended,

By His sinful creatures slain. By His one complete oblation,

Jesus did the ransom pay; Bore the fiery indignation,

Cleans'd the stains of guilt away. 3 Object of their adoration,

Saviour, Thee, Thine angel-train
Met with rapturous acclamation,

Rising to Thy courts again.
Still they shout, and fall before Thee,

Thee their great Creator own,
Re-install'd in all Thy glory,

Bright on Thine eternal throne. 375 Phil. ii. 6-11 L. M.

WATTS. No !

row for a tune of lofty praise Awake, my voice, in heavenly lays

Tell the loud wonders He hath done. 2 Sing how He left the worlds of light,

And the bright robes He wore above;
How swift and joyful was His flight,
On wings of everlasting love.

3 Deep in the shades of gloomy death

Th' Almighty Captive prisoner lay,
Th’ Almighty Captive left the earth,

And rose to everlasting day.
4 Lift up your eyes, ye sons of light,

Up to His throne of shining grace;
See what immortal glories sit

Round the sweet beauties of His face. 5 Amongst a thousand harps and songs,

Jesus, our God, exalted reigns;
His sacred name fills all their tongues,
Apd echoes through the heavenly plains.

376 John 1. 17. 8.7.8.7.8.8.7. HEBER.

1 THE Lord of might from Sinai's brow

Gave forth His voice of thunder ;
And Israel lay on earth below,

Outstretch'd in fear and wonder;
Beneath His feet was pitchy night,
And at His left hand and His right,

The rocks were rent asunder. 2 The Lord of love, on Calvary,

A meek and suffering stranger,
Upraised to heaven His languid eye,

In nature's hour of danger:
For us He bore the weight of woe;
For us He gave His blood to flow,

And met His Father's anger.
3 The Lord of love, the Lord of might,

The King of all-created,
Shall back return to claim His right,

On clouds of glory seated ;
With trumpet sound, and angel song,
And hallelujahs loud and long,

O'er death and hell defeated.

Isaiah xlii. 10–13. D. C.M. WATIS. 1

King !
Al hail, Incarnate Love!
Ten thousand songs and glories wait

To crown Thy head above.
Thy victories and Thy deathless famne

Through the wide world shall run,
And everlasting ages sing

The triumphs Thou hast won.

HIS REIGN.

378 Rev. xix. 12.
* A Let
angels prostrate fall

.

LL hail the power of Jesus' name!

Bring forth the royal diadem,

And crown Him Lord of all. 2 Crown Him, ye martyrs of your God,

Who from His altar call; Extol the stem of Jesse's rod,

And crown Him Lord of all.
3 Ye saints redeemed of Adam's race,

Ye ransomed from the fall,
Hail Him who saves you by His grace,

And crown Him Lord of all. 4 Let every kindred, every tribe

On this terrestrial ball, To Him all majesty ascribe,

And crown Him Lord of all. 5 O that with yonder sacred throng,

We at His feet may fall, Join in the everlasting song,

And crown Him Lord of all !

379 Rev. tis. 8. 874 MONTGOMERY. HALoud as mighty thunders' roar,

1 ARK | ;

Or the fulness of the sea,
When it breaks upon the shore :
Hallelujah! for the Lord
God Omnipotent shall reign :
Hallelujah ! let the word

Echo round the earth and main. 2 Hallelujah !-hark! the sound,

From the centre to the skies,
Wakes abovo, beneath, around,
All creation's monies :
See Jehovah's banners furl'd,
Sheath'd His sword :He speaks—'tis done;
And the kingdoms of this world

Are the kingdoms of His Son.
3 He shall reign from pole to pole,

With illimitable sway:
He shall reign, when lîke a scroll
Yonder heavens have pass'd away.
Then the end ;-beneath His rod
Man's last enemy shall fall :
Hallelujah! Christ in God,
God in Christ, is all in all.

Psalm lxxil. 5–8. L. M. WILKS. 1

Vast as the blessings he conveys, Wide as his reign from pole to pole,

And permanent as his control:
2 So, Jesus, let Thy kingdom come;

Then sin and hell's terrific gloom
Shall at its brightness flee away,
The dawn of an eternal day.
