4. Glory to Thee, O God most high!

Father, we praise Thy majesty :
The Son, the Spirit we adore
One Godhead, blest for evermore.

CONDER,

506.

L. M.
1. Both heaven and earth do worship Thee,

Thou Father of eternity!
With splendor from Thy glory spread,

Are heaven and earth replenished. 2. To Thee all angels loudly cry,

The heavens, and all the powers on high,
The apostles' glorious company,

The prophets' fellowship praise Thee. 3. The noble and victorious host

Of martyrs make of Thee their boast;
The holy church, in every place

Throughout the earth exalts Thy praise. 4. From day to day, O Lord, do we

Highly exalt and honor Thee:
Thy name we worship and adore,
World without end, for evermore.

ST. AMBROSE.

L. M.
1. Lo! what a glorious corner-stone

The Jewish builders did refuse ?
But God has built his church thereon,

In spite of envy and the Jews,
2. Great God! the work is all divine,

The joy and wonder of our eyes;
This is the day that proves it thine,

The day that saw our Saviour rise.
3. Sinners, rejoice, and saints, be glad;

Hosanna, let His name be blest;
A thousand honors on his head,
With peace, and light, and glory rest!

WATTS.

L. M. 1. 'T is not the skill of human art,

Which gives me power my God to know; The sacred lessons of the heart

Come not from instruments below. 2. Love is my teacher; He can tell

The wonders that He learnt above:
No other Master knows so well;

'T is Love alone can tell of Love. 3. Love is my Master; when it breaks

The morning light, with rising ray,
To Thee, O God! my spirit wakes,

And Love instructs it all the day. 4. And when the gleams of day retire,

And midnight spreads its dark control,
Love's secret whispers still inspire

Their holy lessons in the soul.

MADAME GUION,

509.

L.M.
1. Now to the Lord a noble song!

Awake, my soul! awake, my tongue !
Hosanna to th' eternal Name,

And all His boundless love proclaim ! 2. See where it shines in Jesus' face,

The brightest image of His grace;
God, in the person of His Son,

Has all His mightiest works outdone.
3. The spacious earth, and spreading flood,

Proclaim the wise and powerful God;
And Thy rich glories from afar

Sparkle in every rolling star.
4. But in His looks a glory stands,

The noblest labor of Thine hands;
The pleasing luster of His eyes
Outshines the wonders of the skies.

5. Grace ! 't is a sweet, a charming theme;

My thoughts rejoice at Jesus' name!
Ye angels, dwell upon the sound;

Ye heavens, reflect it to the ground !
6. O
may

I live to reach the place
Where He unvails His lovely face !
Where all His beauties you behold,
And sing His name to harps of gold!

1. Of all the joy's we mortals know,

Jesus, Thy love exceeds the rest ;
Love, the best blessing here below,

And nearest image of the blest. 2. While I am held in Thine embrace,

There's not a thought attempts to rove;
Each smile He wears upon His face

Fixes, and charms, and fires my love. . 3. While of Thy absence we complain,

And long, and weep, in all we do,
There's a strange pleasure in the pain,

And tears have their own sweetness too. 4. If He withdraws a moment's space,

He leaves a sacred pledge behind;
Here in this breast His image stays,
The grief and comfort of my

mind.
5. When round Thy courts by day I rove,

Or ask the watchman of the night
For some kind tidings of my Love,
His

very name creates delight. 6. Jesus, my God, but rather come!

Our eyes would dwell upon Thy face; 'Tis best to see our Lord at home,

And feel the presence of His grace.

WATTS,

511.

1. From all that dwells below the skies,

Let the Creator's praise arise ;
Let the Redeemer's name be sung

Through every land, by every tongue. 2. Eternal are Thy mercies, Lord;

Eternal truth attends Thy word;
Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore,
Till suns shall rise and set no more.

WATTS.

512.

L. M.
1. What equal honors shall we bring

To Thee, O Lord our God, the Lamb,
When all the notes that angels sing

Are far inferior to Thy name ? 2. Worthy is He that once was slain,

The Prince of Life, who groaned and died,
Worthy to rise, and live, and reign

At His almighty Father's side. 3. Honor immortal must be paid,

Instead of scandal and of scorn;
While glory shines around His head,

And a bright crown without a thorn. 4. Blessings forever on the Lamb,

Who bore the curse for wretched men;
Let angels sound His sacred name,

And every creature say, Amen.

WATTS.

513.

L. M.
1. Jesus shall reign where'er the sun

Does his successive journeys run;
His kingdom stretch from shore to shore,

Till moons shall wax and wane no more. 2. For Him shall endless prayer

be made,
And praises throng to crown His head;
His name, like sweet perfume, shall rise
With every morning sacrifice.

3. People and realms of every tongue

Dwell on His love with sweetest song ;
And infant voices shall proclaim

Their early blessings on His name.
4. Blessings abound where'er He reigns;

The prisoner leaps to lose His chains;
The weary find eternal rest,

And all the sons of want are blest. 5. Let every creature rise, and bring

Peculiar honors to their King:
Angels descend with songs again,
And earth repeat the long amen. WATTE.

1. He lives, the great Redeemer lives,

What joy the blest assurance gives :
And now, before His Father, God,
Pleads the full merit of His blood.

2. Repeated crimes awake our fears,

And Justice armed with frowns appears;
But in the Saviour's lovely face,

Sweet mercy smiles, and all is peace.
3. Hence then, ye black, despairing thoughts;

Above our fears, above our faults,
His powerful intercessions rise,

And guilt recedes, and terror dies. 4. In every dark, distressful hour,

When sin and Satan join their power,
Let this dear hope repel the dart,

That Jesus bears us on His heart. 5. Great Advocate, almighty Friend !

On Him our humble hopes depend;
Our cause can never, never fail,
For Jesus pleads, and must prevail.

MRS. STEELE.
