2 Haste thee on from grace to glory,
Armed with faith, and winged with prayer Heaven's eternal day 's before thee,
God's own hand shall guide thee there:
Soon shall pass thy pilgrim-days;
Faith to sight, and prayer to praise. 323.
Salvation by Grace.
Harmonious to the ear;
And all the earth shall hear, 2 Grace first contrived the way
To save rebellious man;
Which drew the wondrous plan. 3 Grace led my roving feet
To tread the heavenly road;
While pressing on to God.
Through everlasting days;
And well deserves the praise. 324.
Abides and reigns within ;
The sons of God to sin.
Do they perform his will ;
His sweet commands fulfill.
To God, within the veil;
And joys that never fail.
4 Oh! happy souls !-Oh! glorious state
Of overflowing grace,
And see his lovely face.
Call me a child of thine ;
To form my heart divine.
And make my comforts strong;
With an unwavering tongue. 325.
Faith encouraged by ancient Examples. 1 RISE, O my soul! pursue the path,
By ancient worthies trod;
Who lived and walked with God.
And in example live;
Still fresh instruction give. 3 'T was through the Lamb's most precious blood,
They conquered every foe;
Their crowns of life they owe. 4 Lord! may I ever keep in view
The patterns thou hast given;
That led them safe to heaven. 326.
Salvation through Christ.
Be everlasting honors given;
He calls our wandering feet to heaven. 2 Not for our duties, or deserts,
But of his own abounding grace,
And forms a people for his praise.
3 ’T was his own purpose that begun
To rescue rebels, doomed to die;
Before he spread the starry sky.
And makes his Father's counsels known; Declares the great transaction past,
And brings immortal blessings down.
Did all the powers of hell destroy ;
And took possession of the joy. 327.
The Hope of Heaven.
To mansions in the skies,
And wipe my weeping eyes.
And hell's fierce darts be hurled :
And face a frowning world.
And storms of sorrow fall;
My God, my heaven, my all ;-
In seas of heavenly rest;
Across my peaceful breast. 328.
7s and 6s. Peculiar.
Thy better portion trace;
Toward heaven, thy native place:
Time shall soon this earth remove;
To seats prepared above.
2 Rivers to the ocean run,
Nor stay in all their course;
Both speed them to their source ;
Pants to view his glorious face;
To rest in his embrace.
Press onward to the prize;
Triumphant in the skies:
Happy entrance will be given;
And earth exchanged for heaven. 29.
Salvation by Grace. 1 LORD! we confess our numerous faults;
How great our guilt has been !
And all our lives were sin.
Fas ever love his name,
Of folly, sin, and shame.
Which our own hands have done;
Abounding through his Son
That all our hopes begin ;
Our souls are washed from sin.
Who hung upon the tree,
On such dry bones as we.
And, justified by grace,
And see our Father's face.
S. M. 330.
Heavenly Joy on Earth
And let your joys be known:
And thus surround the throne. 2 Let those refuse to sing,
Who never knew our God;
May speak their joys abroad. 3 The men of grace have found
Glory begun below;
From faith and hope may grow. 4 The hill of Zion yields
A thousand sacred sweets,
Or walk the golden streets. 5 Then let our songs abound,
And every tear be dry;
C. M. 331.
Redemption and Protection.
And triumph in my God;
His glorious grace abroad.
The opening gates of hell;
That 't was before I fell.
Beneath my soul he placed;
My slippery footsteps fast. 4 The city of my blest abode
Is walled around with grace;
To shield the sacred place.
