the seas ;
3 Let those refuse to sing,
That never knew our God;
May speak their joys abroad. 4 The God that rules on high,
And thunders when he please, That rides upon the stormy sky, And
Our Father and our love,
To carry us above.
And never, never sin ;
Drink endless pleasures in. 7 Yes, and before we rise
To that immortal state,
Should constant joys create.
Glory begun below;
From faith and hope may grow. 9 The hill of Sion yields
A thousand sacred sweets,
Or walk the golden streets. 10 Then let our songs abound,
And every tear be dry; We're marching through Immanuel's ground, To fairer worlds on high.
579. Spiritual and Eternul Joys. (C. M.)
And run eternal rounds;
And all created bounds.
Shall death itself outbrave;
And fly beyond the grave.
In heaven's unmeasur'd space;
In pleasure and in praise.
Shall o'er thy beauties rove;
The glories of thy love.
Shall fresh endearments bring;
From all thy graces spring.
Up to thy blest abode;
My Saviour and my God.
580. Christ's Commission. (S. M.)
AISE your triumphant songs,
an Let the wide earth resound the deeds Celestial
2 Sing how eternal Love,
Its chief Beloved chose,
From their abyss of woes.
Nor terror clothes his brow;
To fiercer flames below.
And wrath stood silent by,
To rebels doom'd to die.
Let hopeless sorrows cease ;
. 6 Lord, we obey thy call ;
We lay an humble claim
And love and praise thy name. 81. Joyful Expectation. John xiv. 7. (P. M.) 1 HILDREN of the heavenly King,
As ye journey, sweetly sing;
Glorious in his works and ways. 2 Ye are travelling home to God,
In the way the fathers trod ;
Soon their happiness shall see.
Us to save, our flesh assumes,
4 Shout, ye little flock, and blest,
You on Jesu's throne shall rest;
There your kingdom and reward. 5 Fear not, brethren, joyful stand
On the borders of your land;
Bids you undismay'd go on.
Gladly leaving all below;
582. The Triumph of Faith. Isaiah xlix. 16.
Of covenant mercy I sing;
Hide all my transgressions from view. 2 The work, which his goodness began,
The arm of his strength will complete;
3 My name from the palms of his hands
Eternity will not erase ;
The glorified spirits in heaven. 83. Hope in the Covenant; or, God's Promise and Truth unchangeable. Heb. vi. 17---19. (L. M.)
OW oft have sin and Satan strove,
To rend my soul from thee, my God! But everlasting is thy love,
And Jesus seals it with his blood.
Join to confirm the wond'rous grace
And fills all heav'n with endless praise. :: 3 Amidst temptations sharp and long,
My soul to this dear refuge flies;
While tempests blow and billows rise. 4 The gospel bears my spirits up;
A faithful and unchanging God
In oaths, and promises, and blood. 84. Rejoicing in the Name of Jesus. (C. M.) 1 FOR a thousand tongues, to sing
My dear Redeemer's praise !
