He saved me from my lost estate,
His loving-kindness-oh how great!
3 When trouble, like a gloomy cloud,
Has gathered thick, and thundered loud,
He near my soul has always stood,
His loving-kindness-oh how good!
4 Often I feel my sinful heart

Prone from my Saviour to depart;
But though I have him oft forgot,
His loving-kindness changes not.
5 Soon shall I pass the gloomy vale,
Soon all my mortal powers must fail;
Oh may my last expiring breath
His loving-kindness sing in death.
6 Then let me mount and soar away
To the bright world of endless day;
And sing, with rapture and surprise,
His loving-kindness in the skies.


The Name of Jesus.

1 LET earth and heaven combine,
one high
To sing of love divine,

And shout the Saviour's praise;
T'adore the all-atoning Lamb,
And bless the sound of Jesus' name.
2 Jesus-transporting name!

It charms the hosts above;
They evermore proclaim,

And wonder at his love;
They look upon his heavenly face,
And study his mysterious grace.

3 His name the sinner hears,
And is from sin set free;
'Tis music in his ears;
'Tis life and victory;
New songs do now his lips employ,
And dances his glad heart for joy.
Stung by the scorpion sin,
My poor expiring soul
The balmy sound drinks in,
And is at once made whole :



H. M.


I see my Lord upon the tree,
I know, I feel he died for me.
Oh for a trumpet voice,
On all the world to call ;
To bid their hearts rejoice

In him who died for all;
Inspire with praise each human tongue,
And wake a universal song.

C. Wesley, (all'd.)



Characters of Christ.


Go worship at Immanuel's feet,

See in his face what wonders meet!
Earth is too narrow to express
His worth, his glory, or his grace.
2 The whole creation can afford

But some faint shadows of my Lord :
Nature, to make his beauties known,
Must mingle colors not her own.
3 Is he a vine? His heavenly root
Supplies the boughs with life and fruit:
Oh let a lasting union join
My soul to Christ, the living Vine.
4 Is he a fountain? There I bathe,
And heal the plague of sin and death:
These waters all my soul renew,
And cleanse my spotted garments too.
5 Is he a rock? How firm he proves!
The Rock of ages never moves;
Yet the sweet streams that from him flow,
Attend us all the desert through.

6 Is he a star? He breaks the night,
Piercing the shades with dawning light;
I know his glories from afar,
I know the bright, the Morning Star.
7 Is he a sun? His beams are grace,
His course is joy and righteousness:
Nations rejoice when he appears
To chase their clouds and dry their tears.
8 Oh let me climb those higher skies,
Where storms and darkness never rise;
There he displays his power abroad,
And shines and reigns th' incarnate God.

9 Nor earth, nor seas, nor sun, nor stars,
Nor heaven, his full resemblance bears;
His beauties we can never trace,
Till we behold him face to face.


Christ crowned as Lord of all.


LL hail, the power of Jesus' name!
Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown him Lord of all.

2 Crown him, ye martyrs of our God,
Who from his altar call;
Extol the stem of Jesse's rod,
And crown him Lord of all.

3 Ye chosen seed of Israel's race,
Ye ransomed from the fall—
Hail him who saves you by his grace,
And crown him Lord of all.

4 Ye Gentile sinners, ne'er forget
The wormwood and the gall;
Go spread your trophies at his feet,
And crown him Lord of all.

5 Let every kindred, every tribe
On this terrestrial ball,

To him all majesty ascribe,
And crown him Lord of all.

6 Oh that with yonder sacred throng
We at his feet may fall;
We'll join the everlasting song,
And crown him Lord of all.

Scriptural Titles of Christ.


ITH cheerful voice I sing
The titles of my Lord,
And borrow all the names
Of honor from his word:
Nature and art can ne'er supply
Sufficient forms of majesty.


In Jesus we behold

His Father's glorious face,
Shining for ever bright

With mild and lovely rays:

C. M.


H. M.

Th' eternal God's eternal Son
Inherits and partakes the throne.
The sovereign King of kings,
The Lord of lords most high,
Writes his own name upon
His garment and his thigh;
His name is called The Word of God;
He rules the earth with iron rod.




Where promises and grace
Can neither melt nor move,
The angry Lamb resents
The inj'ries of his love;
Awakes his wrath without delay,
As lions roar and tear the prey.
But when for works of peace
The great Redeemer comes,
What gentle characters,
What titles he assumes!
Light of the world, and Life of men:
Nor will he bear those names in vain.
Immense compassion reigns
In our Immanuel's heart,
When he descends to act
A Mediator's part.


He is a Friend, and Brother, too;
Divinely kind, divinely true."


At length the Lord, the Judge,
His awful throne ascends,
And drives the rebels far

From favorites and friends:
Then shall the saints completely prove
The heights and depths of all his love.

Universal Praise to the Redeemer.

165 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 lips reply,
"For he was slain for us."


C. M.

3 Jesus is worthy to receive
Honor and power divine;
And blessings more than we can give,
Be, Lord, for ever thine.
4 Let all that dwell above the sky,
And air, and earth, and seas,
Conspire to lift thy glories high,
And speak thine endless praise.
5 The whole creation join in one,
To bless the sacred name
Of him who sits upon the throne,
And to adore the Lamb.


The Mediation of Christ.

1 RAISE your triumphant songs


Let the wide earth resound the deeds
Celestial grace has done.

2 Sing how Eternal Love

Its Chief Beloved chose,
And bade him raise our wretched race
From their abyss of woes.

3 His hand no thunder bears,
Nor terror clothes his brow;
No bolts to drive our guilty souls
To fiercer flames below.

4 'Twas mercy filled the throne, And wrath stood silent by,

When Christ was sent with pardons down
To rebels doomed to die.

5 Now, sinners, dry your tears,
Let hopeless sorrow cease;
Bow to the sceptre of his love,

And take the offered peace.
6 Lord, we obey thy call;
We lay a humble claim
To the salvation thou hast brought,
And love and praise thy name.



Praise to the Redeemer.

H for a thousand tongues to sing
My dear Redeemer's praise ;
