Praise for Redemption. Ps. cxxx. 7. Luke i. 68. 1 Pet. i. 18,19. 1 NOW begin the heav'nly theme,
Sing aloud in Jesus' name :
Triumph in redeeming love.
Beaming in the Saviour's face,
Praise and bless redeeming love.
Banish all your guilty fears ;
Cancell'd by redeeming love.
Willing slaves of death and sin,
Stop and taste redeeming love. 5 Welcome all, by sin oppress'd,
Welcome to his sacred rest :
Nothing but redeeming love.
When we to his glory come,
Of our Lord's redeeming love.
Strike aloud each cheerful string;
Praise for Salvation. John ii. 17. xii. 47. 2 Tim. i. 9.
1 COME, ye lovers of the Lamb,
Praise the great Almighty Name:
To the Lamb, your bleeding King. 2 Jesus, thee we honours give;
Live, Almighty Jesus, live;
Thee we hail, incarnate God. 3 We were laden once with sin,
But the Lamb hath made us clean;
Now behold eternal day.
Now brought home by Jesus' blood,
In the Lord our righteousness. 5 Freely we are sav'd by grace:
Heart and hand we this embrace;
This, above, is all the song.
Christ, our Prophet, Priest and King:
Universal Praise. Ps. Ixvi. 4. Rev. v. 13,
1 FROM all that dwell below the skies
Let the Creator's praise arise :
Let the Redeemer's name be sung
Through ev'ry land, by ev'ry tongue. 2 Eternal are thy mercies, Lord;
Eternal truth attends thy word :
The Excellence of Scripture. 2 Tim. iii. 16. Rom. xv. 4! 1 FATHER of mercies, in thy word,
What endless glory shines ! For ever be thy name ador'd
For these celestial lines.
2 Here, may the wretched sons of want
Exhaustless riches find;
And lasting as the mind.
And yields a free repast; Sublimer sweets than nature knows,
Invite the longing taste. 4 Here, the Redeemer's welcome voice
Spreads heav'nly peace around; And life and everlasting joys
Attend the blissful sound.
My ever dear delight;
And still increasing light.
Be thou for ever near;
Teach me to love thy sacred word,
And view my Saviour there.
6. C. M. All Scripture Precious. John v. 39. Luke xxiv. 45. 1 HOW precious is the book divine,
By inspiration given !
To guide our souls to heaven.
In this dark vale of tears ;
And quells our rising fears.
Of life shall guide our way, Till we behold the clearer light
Of an eternal day.
L. M. Introductory. Acts xvii. 26. Mal. ii. 10. Rom. v. 18. 1 THOUGH various names, O Lord, divide
The differing tribes of Adam's race;
Are sons of wrath, and heirs of grace.
The east, the west; the south, the north:
The present, future, past of earth.
Then be thy praise in concert sung,
Abraham's Rejoicing. Gen. xxii. 8. John i. 29, viii. 36. 1 " GOD will provide," the Patriarch said,
And faith gives ev'ry doubt away ;
And sees afar Christ Jesus' day :
His sacrifice, and his alone :
Nor aught, save Christ, can e'er atone.
The Lamb of God, that once was slain :
9. C. M.
New honours be address'd;
And makes the nations blest.
2 He spake the word to Abr’am first,
His truth fulfils his grace ;
And learn his righteousness.
With all her diff'rent tongues ;
