2 But when He came the second time,
He came in power and love,
Hover'd The Holy Dove.
Came down His flock to find, A voice from heaven was heard abroad,
A rushing, mighty wind. 4 Nor doth the outward ear alone
At that high warning start; Conscience gives back th' appalling tone,
'Tis echoed in the heart.
The sinful world around;
No place for it is found. 6 Come Lord, come Wisdom, Love, and
Save, Lord, by love or fear.
Acts il. L, M. WATTS. 1
When the divine disciples met, Whilst on their heads the Spirit came, And sat like tongues of cloven flame. What gifts, what miracles He gave; And power to kill, and power to save; Furnish'd their tongues with wondrous
words, Instead of shields, and spears, and swords. 3 Thus arm'd, He sent the champions forth
From east to west, from south to north :
4 These weapons of the holy war,
Of what almighty force they are,
And lay the proudest rebel low!
Are by these heavenly arms subdued ;
And hates the doctrine of the cross.
I would be led in triumph too,
John 1. 13. C. M.
WATTS 1 OT
Nor rites that God has given,
Can raise a soul to heaven,
Creates us heirs of grace;
A new peculiar race.
Breathes on the sons of flesh,
And forms the man afresh.
From the long sleep of death;
And praise employs our breath. 438 Rom. viil. 14–16. C. M. Warts 1 THY should the children of a King
? Great Comforter, deseend and bring :
Some tokens of Thy grace.
2 Dost Thou not dwell in all the saints,
And seal them heirs of heaven ? When wilt Thou banish my complaints,
And shew my sins forgiven ?
In the Redeemer's blood;
That I am born of God.
The pledge of joys to come,
Will safe convey me home.
THE HOLY TRINITY,
Psalm cxlv. 10.
Thy sovereign power we sound abroal, All nations bow before Thy throne,
And Thee the great Jehovah own. 2 Loud hallelujahs to Thy name
Angels and seraphim proclaim:
Eternal praise to Thee is given. 3 O holy, holy, holy Lord !
Thou God of Hosts, by all adored ! Earth and the heavens are full of Thee,
Thy light, Thy power, Thy majesty. 4 Apostles join the glorious throng,
And swell the loud triumphant song:
5 Glory to Thee, O God Most High :
Father, we praise Thy majesty :
440 Rev. 1. 4, 5, 6. C. M. C. WESLEY.
AIL! holy, holy, holy Lord !
Whom One in Three we know; By all Thy heavenly host ador'd,
By all Thy church below. 2 One undivided Trinity
With triumph we proclaim; The universe is full of Thee,
And speaks Thy glorious name. 3 Thee, Holy Father, we confess;
Thee, Holy Son, adore;
We worship evermore.
Almighty God! receive,
And saints embodied, give. 5 Three Persons equally divine
We magnify and love;
To sing Thy praise above. 6 Hail! holy, holy, holy Lord !
Our heavenly song shall be,
In co-eternal Three !
C. WESLEY. 1 HHX holy, holy Lord,
God the Father, and the Word,
Join'd with those beyond the sky,
Echoing Thine eternal praise. 2 One, inexplicably Three,
One, in simplest Unity,
Breathe unutterable love.
With Thy heavenly presence bless'd ;
Rey. iv. 8. 87's. MONTGOMERY. 1
God of Hosts, when heaven and earth Out of darkness, at Thy word, Issued into glorious birth; All Thy works around Thee stood, And Thine eye beheld them good, While they sang with sweet accord,
Holy, holy, holy Lord !
One Jehovah evermore,
