CXXXIII. With his Stripes we
are healed. Ifa. liii. 5.
RACIOUS Redeemer, how divine,
How wond'rous is thy love ! The subject of th' eternal songs
of happy fouls above.
2 Join in the sacred harmony,
Ye happy faints below;
His sacred head did bow.
3 He left his crown, he left his throne,
By his great Father's side ;
Was scourg'd and crucify'd.
4 his was the torment, his the curse,
Tho' all tho guilt was ours : To cleanse us from our vileft lins,
His vital blood he pours.
5 Behold, how ev'ry wound of his,
A precious balm diftils ;
With joy the finner fills.
6 We see thy great salvation Lord,
By faith, with great delight:
O how refin'd the joys will be,
When faith is turn'd to sight!
ĆXXXIV. Christ's Humiliation
ET all who love the Saviour's name,
The Saviour, full of truth and grace ;, In fongs of triumph spread his fame,
In ev'ry age, in ev'ry place,
2 He kindly laid aside his crown;
And robes of awful majesty;
To bear our sins, and for uş die..
3 By dying Jesus pluck'd the sting
of death-and rising from the grave, , He triumph'd o'er the mighty king
Of terrors, as his captiye flave.
4 Then to his heav'nly throne arose,
Whence he'll defcend again to be
By ev'ry tongue, and ev'ry knee.
5 All glory to his sacred name ;
Let ev'ry tongue exalt his praise ;
CXXXV. Praise for Redemption.
E saints, prepare a noble song,
Redeemer's name ;
And all his wondrous love proclaim.
2 Shout all ye heav'n-born fons of light,
With angel-hosts above conspire,
That fav'd you from eternal fire.
3 He caught us from the lion's paws,
(In which by nature, all men are ;) He pluck'd us from the yawning jaws
Of hell,--the dungeon of dispair.
Children of wrath and hell were we,
But now are made the heirs of heav'n : Hosanna to our Jesus be,
By whom our fins are all forgiv'n.
5 Our songs are here on earth begun,
But louder shall in heav'n resound; While ages infinite roll on,
And Jesus reigns in glory crown'd.
6 Eternity! how vast it is!
Bright as the fun we then shall shine : There shall we balk in beams of bliss, And fill'd with raptures all divine.
CXXXVI. Christ's Interceflion.
RISE, my soul, arise,
Shake-off thy guilty fears ;
In my behalf appears.
2 Five bleeding wounds he bears,
Receiv'd on Calvary; They pour effectual pray’rs,
And strongly plead for me. “ Forgive bim, O! forgive," they cny, “ Nor let the ranfom'd finner die."
The pleadings of his Son :
4 I now am reconcil:d ;
My Father's voice I hear;
I need no longer fear :
CXXXVII. At the Parting of
LEST be tne dear uniting love,
Still we are join'd in heart.
2 Join'd in one spirit to our head,
Where he appoints we go';
And do his work below.
O let us ever walk in him,
And nothing know. beside ; Nothing desire, nothing esteem,
Like Jefus crucify'd.
Closer and closer let us cleave
To his belov'd embrace;
And see him face to face.
While thus we walk with Chrif in light,
Who shall our souls disjoin ?
In fellowship divine.
6 We all are one who him receive,
And each to each agree :
