134. C. M. The times of refreshing. Isa. xxv. 6. Exod. xxxi. 17. Isa. xi. 9. 1 ON Zion, his most holy mount,
God will a feast prepare;
Shall in the banquet share.
His bounteous hand bestows :
In rich abundance flows. 3 See, to the vilest of the vile
A free acceptance given !
Sit with the heirs of heaven.
To ease and health restor'd,
eager appetites partake
What dainties shall be given,
We join the feast of heaven! 6 There joys immeasurably high
Shall overflow the soul,
In countless channels roll.
L. M. The great Jubilee. Numb. x. 10. Isa. xxvii. 13. 1 Cor. xv. 23. 1 LOUD let the tuneful trumpet sound, And spread the joyful tidings round: Let every soul with transport hear, And hail the Lord's accepted year.
2 Ye debtors, whom he gives to know,
That you ten thousand talents owe,
Your gracious God forgives them all.
Of sin and hell's tyrannic reign,
urge the great Redeemer's name. 4 The rich inheritance of heaven,
Your joy, your boast, is freely given;
With golden streets and pearly gates. 5 Her blest inhabitants no more
Bondage and poverty deplore;
The joy still rises with the debt.
Celestial light their steps surround,
L. M. Ordination of a Minister. Psa. lxxii. 1 FATHER of mercies ! in thy house,
We pay our homage and our vows;
These pledges of our Saviour's care,
In splendid triumph o'er his foes,
3 Hence sprang th' apostle's honour'd name,
Sacred beyond heroic fame;
And hence the evangelic page.
Pastors from hence, and teachers, rise;
Still mark a long extended line.
Through all the courses of the sun;
Shall rise and flourish large and fair,
The spring whence all these blessings flow;
P. M. 11s.
Ye noble, ye mighty, with joyful accord; All-wise are his counsels, all-perfect his ways; In the beauty of holiness worship the Lord.
2 The voice of the Lord on the ocean is known,
The God of eternity thundereth abroad; The voice of the Lord, from the depth of his throne, Is terror and power ;-all nature is awed.
3 At the voice of the Lord the cedars are bow'd,
And towers from their base into ruin are hurld; The voice of the Lord, from the dark bosom'd cloud,
Dissevers the lightning in flames o'er the world.
The voice of the Lord through the calm of the wood,
Awakens its echoes, strikes light through its caves, The Lord sitteth King on the turbulent flood; The winds are bis servants, his servants the waves.
5 The Lord is the strength of his people; the Lord
Gives health to his people, and peace evermore; Then throng to his temple, his glory record,
But, O! when He speaketh, in silence adore.
L. M. Blessed in Him with all spiritual blessings. Eph. i. 3. Psa.
To all who know the joyful sound;
On them with brightness all divine.
In Jesus now they see redress d ;
And bless thy grace, thou God of love. 3 Infinite Wisdom ! all our days
Will we admire thy pleasant ways;
Thy wisdom who can comprehend ?
2 What cavern deep, what hill sublime,
Beyond thy reach, shall I pursue ?
Shall hide me from thy boundless view ? 3 If up to heaven's ethereal height,
Thy prospect to elude, I rise;
Thy presence shall my sight surprise. 4 Thee, mighty God! my wondering soul,
Thee, all her conscious powers adore; Whose being circumscribes the whole,
Whose eyes the universe explore. 5 Thine essence fills this breathing frame,
It glows in every vital part;
Whose smile is all the heaven we know,
140. L. M.
Public Worship. Psa. lxv. 1 FOR thee, O God, our constant praise
In Zion waits, thy chosen seat;
And all our zealous vows complete. 2 0 thou, who to our humble prayer
Didst always bend thy listning ear,
And at thy gracious throne appear.
