3 See, how the Conqu’ror mounts on high,

and to his Father flies, With Scars of Honour in his Flesh, :

and Triumph in his Eyes. 4 There our exalted Saviour reigns,

and sends his Blessings down; Our Jesus fills the middle Seat

of the celeftial Throne. 5 Raise your Devotion, mortal Tongues,

to reach his bless'd Abode: Sweet be the Accents of your Songs,

to our incarnate God. 6 Bright Angels, strike your loudest Strings,

your sweetest Voices raise ;
Let Heav'n, and all created Things,
found our Immanuel's Praise.

H Y M N LV.
REJOICE, the Saviour reigns!

The God of Truth and Love;
When he had purg'd our Stains,

He took his Seat above:
Lift up your Hearts, lift up your Voice,
Rejoice ; again, I fay, Rrjoice.
2 His Kingdom cannot fail,

He rules o'er Earth and Heav'n;
The Keys of Death and Hell,
Are to our Jesus given:

Lift

Lift up your Hearts, lift up your Voice,
Rejoice; again, I say, Rejoice.
3

He all his Foes Thall quell,
Shall all our Sins destroy,
And every Bosom swell

With pure Seraphic Joy:...
Lift up your Hearts, lift up your Voice,
Rejoice; again, I say, Rejoice.
4 Rejoice in glorious Hope,

Jesus the Judge shall come,
And take his Servants up

To their eterna! Home:
We foon shall hear th' Archangel's Voice,
The Trump of God shall found, Rejoice,

HY MN LVI.
I COME, Holy Spirit, heav'nly Dove,

with all thy quick’ning Pow'rs; Kindle a Flame of sacred Love

in these cold Hearts of ours. 2 Look how we grovel here below,

fond of these earthly Toys; Our Souls, how heavily they go

to reach eternal Joys!
3 In vain we tune our formal Songs,

in vain we strive to rise ;
Hosannas languilh on our Tongues,

and our Devotion dies,

* Dear

Dear Lord! and shall we ever live,

at this poor dying Rate?
Our Love so faint, so cold to thee,

and thine to us so great?
5 Come, Holy Spirit, heav'nly Dove,

with all thy quick’ning Pow'rs;
Come, shed abroad a Saviour's Love,
and that shall kindle ours.

H Y M N LVII.
* REJOICE, rejoice, ye fallen Race,

The Day of Pentecost is come!
Expect the sure descending Grace,

Open your Hearts to make him Room,
2 Our Jesus is gone up on high,
For us the Blessing to receive;
It now comes streaming from the Sky,
The Spirit comes and Sinners live.
3 Afsembled here with one Accord,

Calmly we wait the promis'd Grace,
The Purchase of our dying Lord;
Come, Holy Ghost, and fill this place.
Behold to thee our Souls aspire,
And long the blest Descent to feel;
Kindle in each thy living Fire,

And stamp on ev'ry Heart thy Seal.
s Wisdom and Strength to thee belong,
Sweetly within our Bofams move,
Now let us speak with other tongue
: 7'he new strange Language of thy Love.

HYMN

DA

H YM N LVIII.
COME now, dear Lord, thyself reveal,

And let the Promise now take place!
Be it according to thy Will,
According to thy Word of Grace;
Thy forrowful Disciples cheer

And send us down the Comforter. 2 He visits now the troubled Breaft, And oft relieves our fad Complaint;

But soon we lose the transient Gueft,
But soon we droop again and faint;
Repeat the melancholy Moan-

Our Joy is filed, our Comfort gone ! 3 Haften him, Lord, into each Heart, Our sure inseparable Guide:

O might we meet and never part!

might be in our Hearts abide!
And keep his House of Praise and Prayer,
And rest, and reign for ever there!

HY M N LIX.
I COME, Holy Ghost, our Souls inspire

And lighten with celestial Fire,
Thou the anointing Spirit art,
Who dost thy fev’nfold Gifts impart.
2 Thy blefled Unction from above,

Is Comfort, Life, and Fire of Love;
Enable with perpetual Light
Thę Dulness of our blinded Sight.

3 Anoint

3 Anoint and cheer our foiled Face

With the Abundance of thy Grace.
Krep far our Foes, give Peace at Home!

Where Thou art Guide no IlI can come. 4 Teach us to know the Fa:her, Son,

And Thee of both to be but One;
That through the Ages all along

This, this may be our endless Song 5 Praise God from whom all Blessings flow;

Praise h m al Creatures here below;
Praise him above, ye heav'nly hoft;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

HY MN LX.
'HAIL Holy, Holy, Holy Lord!

be erdless Praise to Thee ! Supream, essential One, ador'd

in co-eternal Three. 2 Enthron'd in everlasting State,

e'er 'I ime its Round began, Who join'd in Council to create

the Dignity of Man. 3 To whom Isaiah's Vision shewd

the Seraphs veil their Wings, While 'Thee, Jehovah, Lord and God,

th’ Angelic Army fings.
4 To Thee by mystic Pow'rs on high

were humble Praises given,
When John beheld with favour's Eye

th' Inhabitants of Heaven.
