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.
C. M. WATTS.
The glories of the place,
Of His o'erflowing grace!
Sit smiling on His brow;
At humble distance bow.
Bend their bright sceptres down ;
To see Him wear the crown.
Through every heavenly street,
Submissive at His feet.
That once rude iron tore,
And all the saints adore.
That cruel thorns did wound,
And circle it around.
Whom we unseen adore ;
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
Rising to Thy courts again.
Thee their great Creator own,
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;
3 Deep in the shades of gloomy death
Th' Almighty Captive prisoner lay,
And rose to everlasting day.
Up to His throne of shining grace;
Round the sweet beauties of His face. 5 Amongst a thousand harps and songs,
Jesus, our God, exalted reigns;
376 John 1. 17. 18.104.22.168.8.8.7. HEBER.
1 THE Lord of might from Sinai's brow
Gave forth His voice of thunder ;
Outstretch'd in fear and wonder;
The rocks were rent asunder. 2 The Lord of love, on Calvary,
A meek and suffering stranger,
In nature's hour of danger:
And met His Father's anger.
The King of all-created,
On clouds of glory seated ;
O'er death and hell defeated.
Isaiah xlii. 10–13. D. C.M. WATIS. 1
To crown Thy head above.
Through the wide world shall run,
The triumphs Thou hast won.
378 Rev. xix. 12.
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.
Ye ransomed from the fall,
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,
Echo round the earth and main. 2 Hallelujah !-hark! the sound,
From the centre to the skies,
Are the kingdoms of His Son.
With illimitable sway:
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:
Then sin and hell's terrific gloom
