4 Save me from death; from hell set free;
Death, hell, are but the want of Thee:
My life, my only heaven Thou art;
Oh, might I feel Thee in my heart!


L. M. 6 1.
EARY of wand'ring from my God,
And now made willing to return,
I hear, and bow beneath the rod;
For Thee, not without hope, I mourn:
I have an Advocate above,

A Friend before the throne of love. 2 O Jesus! full of truth and grace,

More full of grace than I of sin;
Yet once again I seek Thy face;
Open Thine arms and take me in;.
And freely my backslidings heal,
And love the faithless sinner still.

3 Thou know'st the way to bring me back,
My fallen spirit to restore;
Oh, for Thy truth and mercy's sake,
Forgive, and bid me sin no more!
The ruins of my soul repair,

And make my heart a house of prayer.

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,
A remnant weak and small,

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 ev'ry kindred, ev'ry 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!

H Hail! Thou Galilean King!

AIL! Thou once despiséd Jesus!

Thou didst suffer to release us;
Thou didst free salvation bring:
Hail! Thou agonizing Saviour,
Bearer of our sin and shame!
By Thy merits we find favor;
Life is given through Thy name.
2 Paschal Lamb, by God appointed,
All our sins on Thee were laid;
By almighty love anointed,
Thou hast full atonement made:

[blocks in formation]

All Thy people are forgiven
Through the virtue of Thy blood;
Open'd is the gate of heaven;

Peace is made 'twixt man and God. 3 Jesus, hail! enthroned in glory, There forever to abide!

All the heavenly host adore Thee,
Seated at Thy Father's side;
There for sinners Thou art pleading;
There Thou dost our place prepare;
Ever for us interceding,

Till in glory we appear.

4 Worship, honor, power, and blessing,
Thou art worthy to receive;
Loudest praises, without ceasing,
Meet it is for us to give:
Help, ye bright, angelic spirits!
Bring your sweetest, noblest lays!
Help to sing our Saviour's merits;
Help to chant Immanuel's praise.

151 (337).

H, for a thousand tongues to sing
My dear Redeemer's praise;
The glories of my God and King,
The triumphs of His grace!

2 My gracious Master and my God,
Assist me to proclaim,

To spread through all the earth abroad
The honors of Thy name.

8 Jesus, the name that calms our fears,
That bids our sorrows cease;

"T is music in the sinner's ears;
'Tis life, and health, and peace.

4 He breaks the power of reigning sin,
He sets the pris'ner free;

His blood can make the foulest clean;
His blood avail'd for me.

Jis crown'd with glory now

ESUS, our Head, once crown'd with thorns,

Heaven's royal diadem adorns
The mighty Victor's brow.

2 Delight of all who dwell above,
The joy of saints below;
To us still manifest Thy love,
That we its depths may know.

3 To us Thy cross, with all its shame,
With all its grace, be given;
Though earth disowns Thy lowly name,
All worship it in heaven.

4 Who suffer with Thee, Lord, below,
Will reign with Thee above;
Then let it be our joy to know
This way of peace and love.

5 To us Thy cross is life and health,
Though shame and death to Thee;
On earth, it is our joy and wealth,
In heaven, our crown shall be.

153 (777).

AIL to the Lord's Anointed,

H Great David's greater Son!
Hail, in the time appointed,
His reign on earth begun!

7s & 69.

He comes to break oppression,
To set the capt ve free,
To take away transgression,
And rule in equity.

2 He comes with succor speedy,
To those who suffer wrong;
To help the poor and needy,
And bid the weak be strong;
To give them songs for sighing,
Their darkness turn to light,
Whose souls, condemn'd and dying,
Were precious in His sight.

3 He shall descend like showers
Upon the fruitful earth,
And love and joy, like flowers,
Spring in His path to birth;
Before Him, on the mountains,
Shall peace, the herald, go;
And righteousness, in fountains,
From hill to valley flow.

4 For Him shall prayer unceasing,
And daily vows ascend,
His kingdom still increasing,
A kingdom without end:
The tide of time shall never
His covenant remove;

His name shall stand for ever;
That name to us is love.

154 (325).


H Only Thee I wish to sing.

my ever blesséd Jesus,

8s & 78.

To my soul Thy name is precious,
Thou my Prophet, Priest, and King.
