The year of jubilee is come;
Sabbatic Year. Lev. xxv. 13, 20, 21. Mat. vi. 25.
1 BLESSED are the eyes
2 We plough nor sow no more,
Nor toil for living bread;
A table plenteous spread.
3 The servant now is free;
The hateful heavy yoke (That all might taste true liberty)
From ev'ry neck is broke.
4 Th' inheritance, once sold,
Which the poor bankrupt mourns, To the true owner, without gold
Or price, it now returns. 5 O Jesus ! ever bless'd,
Thou art our jubilee;
Is all, dear Lamb, in thee.
6 Thy name, O bleeding King,
Shall dwell on all our tongues ; And ev'ry heart inspir'd shall sing,
Thy praise in all their songs.
Father. Isa. lxiii. 16. Psa. ciii. 22 ; cxlv. 9, 10. FATHER of Angels and of men, Of nature and of grace the Lord, Be thou in one eternal strain, By all thy various works ador’d. 2 From heaven to earth, from earth to heaven,
Through worlds above and worlds below, Thy boundless mercies, freely given,
In tides of bliss for ever flow.
Thou earth, and let the anthem roll,
1 0, FOR a thousand tongues to sing
My dear Redeemer's praise ! The glories of my God and King,
The triumphs of his grace! 2 Jesus, the name that charms our fears,
That bids our sorrows cease; 'Tis music in the sinner's ears,
'Tis life and health and peace.
He sets the prisoners free;
4 He speaks, and, listening to his voice,
New life the dead receive;
The humble poor believe. 5 Hear him, ye deaf; his praise, ye dumb,
Your loosen'd tongues employ;
And leap, ye lame, for joy.
Characters of Christ; from the Prophets. 1 “OPENER of the blinded eyes
?Mid the night of death arise.
Balsam to the soul impart.
of Jacob's race !"
On thine arm shall nations trust.
In salvation's chariots, come.
Sinners wash in' thy own blood. “ Taker of the veil away!"
Lead us to eternal day. 5 "Man of sorrows, man of grief!" May thy wounds impart relief.
Leader, witness, cov'nant God !!! Rule the world with mercy's rod.
6 “Opener of the prison door!”
Captives to thy light restore.

Are ever, ever thine ;
And life and peace divine. . 2 Good, everlasting good,
Glad tidings full of joy,
And flow without alloy,
The bruis'd, the deaf, the blind,
In thee compassion find.
The promis'd day of grace,
The dead of Adarn's race.
The blessed, blessing whole;
The life of every soul.
