These he from their empirę drove,

Mighty in redeeming love.
4 Hither, then, your tribute bring,

Strike aloud each joyful string :
Saints below, and saints above,
Join to praise redeeming love.

es & 7s. 96

Redeeming Love. SAVIOUR, source of every blessing,

Tune my heart to grateful lays; Streams of mercy, never ceasing,

Call for ceaseless songs of praise. 2 Teach me some melodious measure,

Sung by raptured saints above;
Fill my soul with sacred pleasure,

While I sing redeeming love.
Thou didst seek me, when a stranger,

Wandering from the fold of God; Thou, to save my soul from danger,

Didst redeem me with thy blood. 4 By thy hand restored, defended,

Safe through life, thus far, I'm come; Safe, O Lord, when life is ended, Bring me to my heavenly home.

8s & 78, 97

Christ droelling in his People. LOVE divine, all love excelling!

Joy of heaven, to earth come down: Fix us in thy humble dwelling,

All thy faithful mercies crown: Jesus! thou art all compassion,

Pure, unbounded love thou art;

Visit us with thy salvation,

Enter every trembling heart! 2 Come! almighty to deliver,

Let us all thy life receive! Suddenly return—and never,

Never more thy temples leave!
Thee we would be always blessing,

Serve thee as thy hosts above;
Pray, and praise thee, without ceasing,

Glory in thy precious love.

Christ's unchanging Love the Safety of his people. TO God, the only wise,

Our Saviour, and our King, Let all the saints below the skies

Their humble praises bring. 2 'Tis his almighty love,

His counsel and his care,
Preserves us safe from sin and death,

And every hurtful snare. 3 He will present our souls,

Unblemished and complete,
Before the glory of his face,

With joys divinely great. 4 Then all the chosen seed

Shall meet around the throne;
Shall bless the conduct of his grace,

And make his wonders known. 5 To our Redeemer God,

Wisdom with power belongs,
Immortal crowns of majesty,

And everlasting songs.

C. M. 99

Grateful Remembrance of Christ.
IF human kindness meets return,

And owns the grateful tie;
If tender thoughts within uş burn,

To feel a friend is nigh,-
2 Oh! shall not warmer accents tell

The gratitude we owe
To him who died, our fears to quell,

And save from death and wo!
3 While yet in anguish he surveyed
Those pang's

he would not flee,
What love his latest words displayed

“ Meet and remember me !" 4 Remember thee!—thy death, thy shame

Our sinful hearts to share !
O memory! leave no other name

But his recorded there!

C. M. 100

Godly Sorrow in View of the Sufferings of Christ.
ALAS! and did my Saviour bleed,

And did my Sovereign die ?
Would he devote that sacred head

For such a worm as I ?
2 Was it for crimes that I had done,

He groaned upon the tree?
Amazing pity !-grace unknown!

And love beyond degree!
3 Well might the sun in darkness hide,

And shut his glories in,
When Christ, th' almighty Saviour, died

For man, the rebel's sin.

4 Thus might I hide my blushing face,

While his dear cross appears ; Dissolve my heart in thankfulness,

And melt my eyes to tears.
5 But drops of grief can ne'er repay

The debt of love I owe:
Here, Lord, I give myself away-

'Tis all that I

can

do.

C. M. 101

Godly Sorrow in View of the Sufferings of Christ. AND can mine eyes, without a tear,

A weeping Saviour see?
Shall I not weep his groans to hear,

Who groaned—and died—for me? 2 Blest Jesus! let those tears of thine

Subdue each stubborn foe;
Come, fill my heart with love divine,

And bid my sorrows flow.

C. M. 102

Love of Christ celebrated.
TO our Redeemer's glorious name

Awake the sacred song!
Oh may his love-immortal flame!

Tune every heart and tongue. 2 His love, what mortal thought can reach!

What mortal tongue display!
Imagination's utmost stretch

In wonder dies away.
3 Dear Lord, while we adoring pay

Our humble thanks to thee, May every heart with rapture say,

“The Saviour died for me!"

4 Oh may the sweet, the blissful theme,

Fill every heart and tongue,
Till strangers love thy charming name,
And join the sacred

song

S. M. 103

Love of Christ celebrated.
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 us, whose sins he bore. 3 Sing on your heavenly way,

Ye ransomed sinners, sing;
Sing on, rejoicing every day,

In Christ, th' eternal King. 4 Soon shall we hear him say,

“ Ye blessed children, come !"
pon will he call us hence away,

To our eternal home.
5 There shall our raptured tongue

His endless praise proclaiin ;
And sweeter voices tune the song

Of Moses and the Lamb!
104
AWAKE-awake the sacred song

To our incarnate Lord !
Let every heart, and every tongue

Adore th' eternal Word.

C. M
