ANTHEM. 0. C. Col. p. 41.
GREAT God! what do I see and hear?

The end of things created!
The Judge of mankind does appear,

On clouds of glory seated.
The trumpet sounds! the graves restore
The dead which they contain'd before,

Prepare, my soul, to meet Him.

5 ANTHEM. H. & H. Col. p. 143, vol. 2. HOW excellent thy name, O Lord !

In all the world is known ! Above all heavens, O King ador'd,

How hast thou set thy glorious throne !

6 ANTHEM. H. & H. Col. p. 140, vol. 2. WHEN lost in wonder I behold, Yon azure starr'd with living gold; Or on the moon's soft lustre gaze, As through the spangled heavens she strays; Warm'd by devotion's hallow'd fire, May my rapt soul to Thee aspire; To Thee, whose powerful word we know Gave these resplendent orbs to glow : They heard, involv'd in central night, Thy great command," let there be light :" They heard, and at the joyful sound Unnumber'd planets blaz'd around.

Last Day. 1 Pet. iv.18; 2 Pet. iii.7,10,12.-H.&H. Col. p. 238 1 THAT day of wrath, that dreadful day,

When heaven and earth shall pass away,
What power shall be the sinner's stay?

How shall he meet that dreadful day,
2 When.shrivelling like a parched scroll,

The flaming heavens together roll ?
When louder yet and yet more dread,

Swells the high trump that wakes the dead! 3 Oh! on that day, that wrathful day,

When man to judgment wakes from clay,
Be Thou, O Lord, the sinner's stay,
Though heaven and earth shall pass away.

TRIO AND CAORUS.-0. C. Col. p. 38. SOUND the loud timbrel o'er Egypt's dark sea, Jehovah has triumph'd, his people are free.

Sing, for the pride of the tyrant is broken,

His chariots and horsemen,all splendid and brave How vain were there boasting, the Lord bath but spoken

And chariots and horsemen are sunk in the wave. Sound, &c.

Who shall return to tell Egypt the story,

Of those she sent forth in her hour of her pride? For the Lord hath look'd out from his pillar of glory

And all the brave thousands are dash'd in the tide. Sound, &c.

TRIO. An Elegy. 0. C. Col. p. 70. WEEP not for those, whom the veil of the tomb,

In life's happy morning hath hid from our eyes ; Ere sin threw a blight o'er the spirit's young bloom,

Or earth had profan'd what was born for the skies. Death chill'd the fair fountain ere sorrow had stain'd it,

'Twas frozen in all the pure light of its course, And but sleeps till the sunshine of heaven has unchain’d it, To water that Eden where first was its course.

10 CANON. H. & H. Col.

p. 318. 1 0, 'TWAS a joyful sound to hear

Our tribes devoutly say
Up, Israel, to the temple haste,

And keep your festal day.
2 At Salem's courts we must appear,

With our assembled powers;
In strong and beauteous order rangod,
Like her united towers.
