3 Then shall the heathen, filld with awe,
Learn the blest knowledge of Thy law,
Fall from their thrones to rise no more. 4 Then shall the Jew and Gentile meet
In pure devotion at Thy feet;
Her fulness and her glory too.
This heavenly light, this truth divine !
Acts v. 31. L. M. DODDRIDGE XALTED Prince of Life, we own
"Tis fixed by God's almighty hand,
And angels bow at Thy command. 2 Exalted Saviour, we confess
The sovereign triumphs of Thy grace;
And temper majesty divine.
Till all Thine enemies obey ;
And conquer millions by its love. 4 Mighty to vanquish and forgive,
Thine Israel shall repent and live;
KELLY. 1 CARK! ten thousand voices cry,
Swiftly flies the welcome sound,
2 Jesus comes, His conflict over,
Comes to claim His great reward; Angels round the Victor hover,
Crowding to behold their Lord. 3 O what honours now await Him !
Friends and foes shall hear His voice : Tremble, tremble, ye that hate Him;
Ye who love His name, rejoice. 4 Yonder throne for Him erected,
Now becomes the Victor's seat: Lo, the Man on earth rejected,
Angels worship at His feet. 5 Day and night they bow before Him,
Worship Him, their glorious Lord; All the powers of heaven adore Him,
All obey His sovereign word.
Rev. xi. 15. 8.7.4. KELLY, 1 OOK, ye saints, the sight is glorious;
See the Man of Sorrows now, From the fight returned victorious; Every knee to Him shall bow.
Crown Him, crown Him:
Rich the trophies Jesus brings.
hile th vault of heaven rings.
Crown Him, crown Him : Crown the Saviour, King of kings. 3 Sinners in derision crowned Him,
Mocking thus the Saviour's claim.
Crown Him, crown Him:
4 Hark, those bursts of acclamation !
Hark, those loud triumphant chords 1
Crown Him, crown Him,
Mortals, give thanks and sing,
And triumph evermore.

The God of truth and love.

Till all His foes submit,
And fall beneath His feet.

Jesus the Judge shall come,
To their eternal home.
Psalm lxxii. 2-5. 7.6. MONTGOMERY. 1 ECEIVE Messiah gladly,
And lift the downcast eyes : Ye people, speak not sadly ;
He makes the fallen rise, In all your habitations
Complaint and crying cease; The long Desire of Nations
Brings everlasting peace. 2 He comes, with succour speedy,
To those who suffer wrong:
And bid the weak be strong:
Their darkness turn to light,
Were precious in His sight. 3 By such shall He be feared,
While sun and moon endure,
For He shall judge the poor,
With justice, mercy, truth,
Or moons renew their youth.
HIS SECOND COMING.

Lord shall come! the earth shall
2 The Lord shall come ! but not the same
As once in lowliness He came;
A weary man, and full of woes.
With rainbow wreath and robes of storin; On cherub wings, and wings of wind,
Appointed Judge of all mankind. 4 Can this be He, who wont to stray
A pilgrim on the world's highway, Oppressed by power, and mocked by pride,
The Nazarene,-the Crucified ? 6 While sinners in despair shall call,
"Rocks, hide us; mountains, on us fall!" The saints, ascending from the tomb, Shall joyful sing, “The Lord is come !"
Rev. i. 7. 8.7.4. OLIVER 1
Once for favoured sinners slain : Thousand thousand saints attending, Swell the triumph of His train :
Robed in dreadful majesty :
Heaven and earth shall flee away.
Come to judgment !
