Glory Didar Did th Shame Should Hallele


. From To the All to

2 Lord of ev'ry land and nation,

Ancient of eternal days ;
Sounded through the wide creation
Be thy just and lawful praise.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,

Glory, glory Lord be thine.
3 For the grandeur of thy nature

Grand beyond a seraph's thought,
For created works of power,
Works with skill and kindness wrought.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,

Glory, glory, Lord be thine.

For thy providence that governs
Thro' thine empire's wide domain
Wings an angel, guides a sparrow,
Bleffed be thy gentle reign.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Glory, glory, Lord be thine.

LORD how rich; is free redemption ?

Dark thro? brightness all along;
Thought is poor, and poor expression,
Who dare fing that a wful fong ?
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,

Glory, glory, Lord be thine.
2 Brightness of the Father's glory,

Shall thy praise unutter'd lie?
Fly my tongue such guilty silence ?
Şing the Lord who came to die.

Hallel Glory

Hallo Glory

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,

Glory, glory, Lord be thine. 3 Did archangels fing thy coming ?

Did the shepherds learn their lays ? Shame would cover me ungrateful, Should my tongue refuse to praise, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,

Glory, glory, Lord be thine. 4

From the highest throne in glory,
To the cross of deepest woe;
All to rapsom guilty captives,
Flow my praise for ever flow.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,

Glory, glory, Lord be thice. 5 Go, return immortal Saviour,

Leave thy footstool, take thy throne,
Thence return, and reign for ever,
Be the kingdom all thine own.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Glory, glory, Lord be thine.

Prophecy the Tiflimony of Jesus.
"HE Bible is justly esteem?d

The glory supreme of the land,
Which shows how a finner's redeem'd,
And brought to Jehovah's right hand.
With pleasure we freely confess
The Bible all books does outshine,
But Jefus, his person and grace,

Affords it that lustre divine. 2 In ey’ry prophetical book

Where God his decrees hath unseald,
With joy we behold as we lookļ,
The wonderful Saviour reveald:
His glories project to the eye,
And prove it was not his design,
Those glories concealed should lie,

But there in full majesty shine.
3 The first gracious promise to man,

A blessed prediction appears,
His work is the soul of the plan,
And gives it the glory it wears.
How cheering the truth must have been,
That Jesus, the promised seed,
Should triumph o'er fatan and fin,

And hell in captivity lead! 4 The Ancient Levitical Law

Was prophecy after its kind,

In types there the faithful foresaw
The Saviours that ransom'd mankind.
The altar, the lamb, and the priest,
The blood, that was sprinkled of old,
Had life when the people could taste,

The bleflings those shadows foretold. 5

Review each prophetical song
Which shine in predi&tion's rich train,
The sweetest to Jefus belong,
And point out his fiff'rings and reign :
Sure David his harp never strung,
With more of true facred delight,
Than when of the Saviour he lung,

And he was reveal'd to his hight.
6 May Jesus more precious become ;

His word be a lamp to our feet,
While we in this wilderness roam,
Till brought in his preience to meet :
Then, then, will we gaze on thy face,
Our Prophet, our Priest and our King i
Recount all thy wonders of grace,
Thy praises eternally fing.

Usefulness of the Scriptures.
THEN Israel thro' the defart pals’d,

A fiery pillow went before ;
To guide them thro’ the defart walte,

And leflen the fatigues they bore. 2 Such is thy glorious word, O God,

Tis for our light and guidance giv'n ;

[ocr errors]

It sheds a lustre all abroad,

And points the path to bliss and heav'. 3 It fills the foul with sweet delight;

And quickens its inactive pow'rs;
It fets our wandring footsteps right;

Displays thy love, and kindles ours. 4. Its promises rejoice our hearts ;

Its doctrines are divinely true :
Knowledge and pleasure it imparts;
And comforts and instructs us too.

HE counsels of redeeming grace,

Thele sacred leaves unfold: And here the Saviour's lovely face,

Our raptur'd eyes behold.
2 Here light descending from above,

Directs' our doubtful feet :
Here promises of heav'nly love,

Our ardent wishes meet.
3 Our numerous griefs are here redrelt,

And all our wants fuppli'd ;
Nought we can ask to make us blest,
Is in this book deni'd,
