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 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;
Be, Lord, forever thine.
To bless the sacred name
5 He speaks, and, listening to his voice,
New life the dead receive;
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.
WILLIAM HAMMOND, ALT.
3 The universal King.
And hymns of glory sing:
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,
And laud, and magnify? 3 0 for the living flame
From his own altar brought,
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.
Or selfishness we meet;
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.
JOSIAH CON DER.
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.
His mercy is forever sure;
And shall from age to age endure.
