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.

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

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,

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.

* 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.



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!

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.

'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.
