Exultant praise to the Redeemer. 1 O FOR a thousand tongues, to sing

My great Redeemer's praise; The glories of my God and King,

The triumphs of his grace! 2 My gracious Master and my God,

Assist me to proclaim, To spread through all the earth abroad,

The honors of thy name. 3 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. 4 breaks the power of canceled sin,

He sets the prisoner free;
His blood can make the foulest clean;

His blood availed for me.


Worshiping the Lamb. 1 COME, let us join our cheerful songs

With angels round the throne; Ten thousand thousand are their tongues,

But all their joys are one. 2 “Worthy the Lamb that died," they cry,

To be exalted thus!” “Worthy the Lamb!” our hearts reply,

“For he was slain for us.' 3 Jesus is worthy to receive

Honor and power divine;
And blessings more than we can give,

Be, Lord, forever thine.
4 The whole creation join in one,

To bless the sacred name
Of him that sits upon the throne,
And to adore the Lamb.


5 He speaks, and, listening to his voice,

New life the dead receive;
The mournful, broken hearts rejoice;
The humble poor believe.

4 Soon shall we hear him say,

* Ye blessed children, come!" Soon will he call us hence away,

To our eternal home.

5 There shall each raptured tongue

His endless praise proclaim; And sweeter voices tune the song Of Moses and the Lamb.


3 The universal King.
1 COME, sound his praise abroad,

And hymns of glory sing:
Jehovah is the sovereign God,

The universal King. 2 He formed the deeps unknown;

He gave the seas their bound; The watery worlds are all his own,

And all the solid ground. 3 Come, worship at his throne,

Come, bow before the Lord ; We are his works, and not our own;

He formed us by his word. 4 To-day attend his voice,

Nor dare provoke his rod; Come, like the people of his choice,

And own your gracious God.


5 Praise and thanksgiving. 1 STAND up, and bless the Lord,

Ye people of his choice; Stand up, and bless the Lord your God,

With heart, and soul, and voice. 2 Though high above all praise,

Above all blessing high,
Who would not fear his holy name,

And laud, and magnify? 3 0 for the living flame

From his own altar brought,
To touch our lips, our souls inspire,

And wing to heaven our thought!

4 Song of Moses and the Lamb. 1 AWAKE, and sing the song

Of Moses and the Lamb; Wake, every heart and every tongue,

To praise the Saviour's name. 2 Sing of his dying love;

Sing of his rising power ; Sing how he intercedes above

For those whose sins he bore.

4 God is our strength and song,

And his salvation ours; Then be his love in Christ proclaimed

With all our ransomed powers.

3 Sing on your heavenly way,

Ye ransomed sinners, sing; Sing on, rejoicing every day

In Christ, the eternal King.

5 Stand up, and bless the Lord;

The Lord your God adore; Stand up, and bless his glorious name, Henceforth, for evermore.

7 Met in His name. 1 JESUS, we look to thee,

Thy promised presence claim; Thou in the midst of us shalt be,

Assembled in thy name. 2 Thy name salvation is,

Which here we come to prove; Thy name is life, and health, and peace,

And everlasting love.
3 Not in the name of pride

Or selfishness we meet;
From nature's paths we turn aside,
And worldly thoughts forget.

8 General invitation to praise God. 1 FROM all that dwell below the skies, Let the Creator's praise arise; Let the Redeemer's name be sung, Through every land, by every tongue. 2 Eternal are thy mercies, Lord; Eternal truth attends thy word: Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore, Till suns shall rise and set no more. 3 Your lofty themes, ye mortals, bring; In songs of praise divinely sing; The great salvation loud proclaim, And shout for joy the Saviour's name. 4 In every land begin the song ; To every land the strains belong : In cheerful sounds all voices raise, And all the world with loudest praise.

10 Universal adoration.
1 O HOLY, holy, holy Lord!
Thou God of hosts, by all adored;
The earth and heavens are full of thee,
Thy light, thy power, thy majesty.
2 Loud hallelujahs to thy name,
Angels and seraphim proclaim:
By all the powers and thrones in heaven,
Eternal praise to thee is given.
3 Apostles join the glorious throng,
And swell the loud triumphant song:
Prophets and martyrs hear the sound,
And spread the hallelujah round.

o high!
Father, we praise thy majesty
The Son, the Spirit, we adore!
One Godhead, blest for evermore.




Reverential adoration. 1 BEFORE Jehovah's awful throne,

Ye nations bow with sacred joy; Know that the Lord is God alone,

He can create, and he destroy. 2 His sovereign power, without our aid,

Made us of clay, and formed us men; And when like wandering sheep we strayed,

He brought us to his fold again. 3 We'll crowd thy gates with thankful songs,

High as the heavens our voices raise; And earth, with her ten thousand tongues,

Shall all thy courts with sounding praise. 4 Wide as the world is thy command;

Vast as eternity thy love; Firm as a rock thy truth shall stand, When rolling years shall cease to move. ISAAC WATTS, ALT, BY J. WESLEY.

11 Invitation to worship.-Psalm 100. 1 ALL people that on earth do dwell,

Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice: Him serve with fear, his praise forth tell,

Come ye before him, and rejoice. 2 The Lord, ye know, is God indeed,

Without our aid he did us make; We are his flock, he doth us feed,

And for his sheep he doth us take. 3 O enter then his gates with praise,

Approach with joy his courts unto: Praise, laud, and bless his name always,

For it is seemly so to do.
4 For why? the Lord our God is good,

His mercy is forever sure;
His truth at all times firmly stood,

And shall from age to age endure.
