HYMN 265. 8s. & 73. [97]
COME, thou fount of every blessing,

Tune my heart to sing thy grace:
Streams of mercy never ceasing,

Call for songs of loudest praise:
Teach me some melodious sonnet,

Sung by flaming tongues above:
Praise the mount-I'm fix'd upon it:

Mount of thy redeeming love!
2 Here I'll raise my Ebenezer,

Hither by thy help I'm come;
And I hope, by thy good pleasure,

Safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,

Wand'ring from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger,

Interpos’d his precious blood!
3 0! to grace how great a debtor,

Daily I'm constrained to be?
Let thy goodness, like a fetter,

Bind my wand'ring heart to thee:
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it;

Prone to leave the God I love
Here's my heart, O take and seal it;
Seal it for thy courts above.

HYMN 266. H. M.
REJOICE, the Lord is King,

Your Lord and King adore;
Mortals give thanks and sing,

And triumph evermore:
Lift up your hearts, lift up your voice,
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice.
2 Jesus, the Saviour reigns,

The God of truth and love,

When he had purged our stains,

He took his seat above;
Lift up your hearts, lift up your voice,
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice.
3 His kingdom cannot fail;

He rules o'er earth and Heaven:
The keys of death and hell

Are to our Jesus given :
Lift up your hearts, lift up your voice,
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice.
4 He sits at God's right hand,

Till all his foes submit,
And bow to his command,

And fall beneath his feet:
Lift up your hearts, lift up your voice,
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice. .
5 He all his foes shall quell,

Shall all our sins destroy ;
And every bosom swell

With pure seraphic joy:
Lift up your hearts, lift up your voice,
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice.
6 Rejoice in glorious hope,

Jesus the judge shall come;
And take his servants up

To their eternal home:
We soon shall hear the archangel's voice,
The trump of God shall sound, Rejoice!

HYMN 267. 78.
HARK! the song of Jubilee,

Loud as mighty thunders roar,
Or the fulness of the sea,

When it breaks upon the shore :
Hallelujah! for the Lord
God omnipotent, shall reign;

[ocr errors]

Hallelujah! let the word

Echo round the earth and main. 2 Hallelujah! hark! the sound,

From the depth unto the skies, Wakes above, beneath, around,

All creation's harmonies: See Jehovah's banner furled,

Sheathed his sword: he speaks : 'tis done; And the kingdoms of this world

Are the kingdoms of his Son.
3 He shall reign from pole to pole

With illimitable sway:
He shall reign, when like a scroll,

Yonder heavens have passed away:-
Then the end ;-beneath his rod,

Man's last enemy shall fall;
Hallelujah! Christ in God,
God in Christ, is all in all.

HYMN 268. 75.
HERALDS of creation cry
Praise the Lord, the Lord most high :
Heaven and earth obey the call,
Praise the Lord, the Lord of all.
2 For he spake, and forth from night
Sprang the universe to light;
He commanded—nature heard,
And stood fast upon his word.
3 Praise him, all ye hosts above,
Spirits perfected in love;
Sun and moon, your voices raise,
Sing, ye stars, your Maker's praise.
4 Earth, from all thy depths below,
Ocean's hallelujah's flow;
Lightning, vapour, wind and storm,
Hail and snow, his will perform.

5 Vales and mountains, burst in song;
Rivers, roll with praise along :
Clap your hands, ye trees, and hail,
God, who comes in every gale.

HYMN 269. C. M.
SING we the song of those who stand

Around the eternal throne,
Of every kindred, crime, and land,

A multitude unknown.
2 Life's poor distinctions vanish here;

To-day the young, the old,
Our Saviour, and his flock appear,

One Shepherd and one fold.
3 Toil, trial, suffering, still await

On earth the pilgrim throng; Yet learn we in our low estate,

The church triumphant's song. 4 Worthy the Lamb for sinners slain,

Cry the redeemed above, Blessing and honor to obtain,

And everlasting love.
5 Worthy the Lamb, on earth we sing,

Who died our souls to save,
Henceforth, O death! where is thy sting?

Thy victory, O grave ?'-
6 Then hallelujah! power and praise

To God in Christ be given;
May all who now this anthem raise,
Renew the strain in heaven.

HYMN 270. S. M.
STAND up and bless the Lord,

Ye people of his choice :
Stand up, and bless the Lord your God,

With heart, and soul, and voice.


2 Though high above all praise,

Above all blessing high,
Who would not fear his holy name

And laud, and magnify? 3 O for the living flame

From his own altar brought, To touch our lips

our minds inspire, And wing to heaven our thought! 4 There, with benign regard,

Our hymns he deigns to hear: Though unrevealed to mortal sense,

The Spirit feels him near. 5 God is our strength and song,

And his salvation ours; Then be his love in Christ proclaimed,

With all our ransom'd powers, 6 Stand up, and bless the Lord,

The Lord your God adore; Stand up and bless his glorious name, Henceforth for evermore.

HYMN 271. S. M. [98] COME ye that love the Lord,

And let your joys be known:
Join in a song with sweet accord,

While ye surround his throne.
Let those refuse to sing,

Who never knew our God;
But servants of the heavenly King,

May speak their joys abroad.
2 The God that rules on high,

That all the earth surveys,
That rides upon the stormy sky,

And calms the roaring seas;
This awful God is ours,
Our Father and our Love;
