C. M. 701.

The New Song before the Throne.
1 WHAT blissful harmonies above, :

In vocal thunders swell ?
The perfecting of joy and love,

What raptured legions lell?
2 The glorious apostolic band,-

Do they in triumph sing?
Do prophets from the holy land

Their inspiration bring?
3 Or from the noble army breaks

The deep, adoring strain,
Who won their way from fiery stakes,

And were for conscience slain ?
4 Is it the patriarchal race

That breathe the sacred song?
Or to the heirs of gospel-grace

Do the full choirs belong?
5 For each, for all, the Word is found

Almighty to atone:
All,- all in shining hosts surround

The bright celestial throne.
6 Peoples, and languages, and tongues

The choral anthem raise :
To every voice and speech belongs

The work of heavenly praise.

702.

C. M.

Earthly and heavenly Good.
1 HOW vain a thought is bliss below!

'T is all an airy dream;
How empty are the joys that flow

On pleasure's smiling stream!
2 Oh ! let my nobler wishes soar

Beyond these realms of night;
in heaven substantial bliss explore,

And permanent delight.
3 No fleeting landscape cheers the gaze,

Nor airy form beguiles;
But everlasting bliss displays

Her undissembled smiles.

4 Adieu to all below the skies !

Celestial Guardian ! come;
On thy kind wing, my soul would rise

To her celestial home.

DISMISSIONS AND DOXOLOGIES.

703.

L. M.
Dismission.

1 DISMISS us, with thy blessing, Lord !

Help us to feed upon thy word;
All that has been amiss forgive,

And let thy truth within us live.
2 Though we are guilty, thou art good ;-

Wash all our works in Jesus' blood;
Give every burdened soul release,
And bid us all depart in peace.

L. M. 704.

Praise to the co-equal Three.
1 BLESSING and honor, praise and love,

Co-equal, Co-eternal Three !
In earth below, in heaven above,

By all thy works, be paid to thee. 2 Thrice Holy! thine the kingdom is;

The power omnipotent is thine ;
And when created nature dies,

Thy never-ceasing glories shine.

L. M. 705.

Praise from all Creatures. 1 PRAISE God, from whom all blessings flow;

Praise him, all creatures here below!
Praise him above, ye heavenly host !
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

Who calls our souls from death,
Who saves by his redeeming word

And new-creating breath;

And Spirit all-divine,
The one in three, and three in one-

Let saints and angels join.

C. P. M. 711.

The Source of all Blessings.

And in the church below;
From whom all creatures draw their breath,
By whom redemption blessed the earth,

From whom all comforts flow.

1 LORD! dismiss us with thy blessing ;

Fill our hearts with joy and peace :
Let us all, thy love possessing,

Triumph in redeeming grace :
Oh! refresh us-

Traveling through this wilderness. 2 Thanks we give and adoration,

For thy gospel's joyful sound;
Let the fruits of thy salvation

In our hearts and lives abound;
May thy presence

With us evermore be found. 3 So, whene'er the signal's given

Us from earth to call away,
Borne on angels' wings to heaven,

Glad to leave this cumbrous clay,
May we ever
Reign with Christ in endless day.
