By thine all-sufficient merit,
C. M. 61
Design of Christ's Advent.
The Saviour promised long!
prepare a throne,
In Satan's bondage held :
The iron fetters yield.
To clear the mental ray;
The bleeding soul to cure;
T'enrich the humble poor.
Thy welcome shall proclaim;
L. M. 62
Deity, Humiliation, and Exaltation of Christ. NOW for a tune of lofty praise
To great Jehovah's equal Son! Awake, my voice, in heavenly lays,
Tell loud the wonders he hath done. 2 Sing, how he left the worlds of light,
And those bright robes he wore above :
How swift and joyful was his flight,
On wings of everlasting love! 3 Deep in the shades of gloomy death,
Th’ almighty captive prisoner lay ;Th’almighty captive left the earth,
And rose to everlasting day. 4 Among a thousand harps and songs,
Jesus, the God, exalted reigns: His sacred name fills all their tongues, And echoes through the heavenly plains !
L. M. 63
Divine Glory displayed in the Person of Christ.
And all his boundless love proclaim. 2 See where it shines in Jesus' face,
The brightest image of his grace;
Has all his mightiest works outdone.
My thoughts rejoice at Jesus' name!
Ye heavens, reflect it to the ground! 4 Oh! may I reach that happy place
Where he unvails his lovely face!
H. M. 64
Christ a Prophet, Priest, and King.
Of wisdom, love, and power,
That ever mortals knew,
Or angels ever bore:
Our tongues shall bless thy name;
Of our salvation came,-
Has shed his blood and died :-
No sacrifice beside:
Our Conqueror, and our King;
Thy reigning grace we sing:
power-oh make us sit
Peace and Hope through Christ's Intercession. HE lives—the great Redeemer lives !What joy the blest assurance gives ! And now, before his Father God,
He pleads the merit of his blood." 2 Repeated crimes awake our fears,
And justice armed with frowns appears ;
3 Great Advocate, almighty Friend!
On thee our humble hopes depend;
8s & 7s.
There forever to abide;
Seated at thy Father's side. 2 There for sinners thou art pleading
There thou dost our place prepare ; Thou for us art interceding,
Till in glory we appear. 3 Worship, honor, power, and blessing,
Thou art worthy to receive :
Meet it is for us to give.
Bring your loudest, noblest lays;
Help to chant Immanuel's praise.
C. M. 67
Miracles of Christ.
When vailed in human clay,
And drive disease away? 2 Didst thou regard the beggar's cry,
And give the blind to see?-
Have mercy, too, 'on me!
3 And didst thou pity mortal wo,
And sight and health restore ?-
Which needs thy mercy more!
When sinking in the wave ?—.
For thou alone canst save. 68
“HAVE mercy, Lord—have mercy, Lord,”
The eager blind man cried:
The prayer was not denied.
The deaf was made to hear:
And wiped the widow's tear.
Then called the dead by name;
The dead arose and came.
The Saviour rose to dwell:
The hearts with grief that swell.
The contrite soul can heal; Then shine upon us from above,
And all thy love reveal.
