HYMN 212. C. M.

Hebrews xii. 1, 2

1 LO! what a cloud of witnesses
Encompass us around;
Men once like us with suff'ring tried,
But now with glory crown'd.

2 Let us, with zeal like theirs inspired,
Strive in the Christian race;
And, freed from every weight of sin,
Their holy footsteps trace.

There, with the Saviour and his saints
Triumphantly to stand.

A charge to keep I have,
Ah, how shall fallen man,
Alas, what hourly dangers rise,
All glorious God, what hymns of praise,
Almighty Father! bless the word,
Almighty Lord! before thy throne,
Although the vine its fruits deny,
And are we now brought near to God,
And wilt thou, O eternal God,
And will the Judge descend,
Another six days work is done
Approach, my soul, the mercy-seat
Arise, my soul! with rapture rise,
As panting in the sultry beam,
As when the weary trav'ller gains,
As o'er the past my memory strays,
As the sweet flower that scents the morn,
Awake, my soul, and with the sun,
Awake, my sour, stretch every nerve.
Awake, ye saints, awake,
Before Jehovah's awful throne,
Begin, my soul, the exalted lay,
Be joyful in God, all ye lands of the
earth,

He dies! the friend of sinners dies,
He's come! let every knee be bent,
Heirs of unending life,,
High on the bending willows hung,
How beauteous are their feet,

How firm a foundation, ye saints of the
Lord,

Be still my heart! these anxious cares,
Bless'd be thou, the God of Israel, 42
Bless'd is the man whose soft'ning heart, 24
Bless'd is the tie that binds,
Behold the Saviour of mankind,
Children of the heavenly King,
Christ from the dead is raised, and made, 16
Christ the Lord is risen to-day,
Come, Holy Ghost, Creator, come,
Come, Holy Spirit, Heavenly Dove,
Come, let our voices join,
Come, Lord, and warm each languid
heart,

How long shall earth's alluring toys,
How helpless guilty nature lies,
How oft, alas! this wretched heart,

16

17 How short the race our friend has run,
17 How wondrous and great,
23 I love thy kingdom, Lord
In loud exalted strains,

Come, ye that love the Lord,
Deluded souls! that dream of heaven,
Disown'd of heaven, by man oppress'd,
Doxologies,

Dread Jehovah! God of nations!
Eternal source of every joy!
Faith is the Christian's evidence,
Far from my thoughts, vain world, be

gone,
Father of mercies! in thy word,
Father of all, whose love profound,
Father of mercies! bow thire ear,
Father, to thee my soul I lift,
Father, whate'er of earthly bliss,
Few are thy days, and full of wo,
Fountain of mercy, God of love
From all that dwell below the skies,
From Greenland's icy mountains,
From whence these direful omens round,
Glory to thee, my God, this night,

My God, since thou hast raised me up,
My grateful soul, for ever praise,
My opening eyes with rapture see,
My Saviour hanging on the tree,
Not to the terrors of the Lord,
Now from the altar of our hearts,
Now may the God of grace and power,
Now the shades of night are gone,
O'er mountain tops the mount of God,
O happy day, that stays my choice,
Oh happy is the man who hears,
O for a closer walk with God,
O holy, holy, holy Lord,

O, in the morn of life, when youth,
O let triumphant faith dispel,
On Zion, and on Lebanon,
O Spirit of the living God,
O that my load of sin were gone,
O thou that hear'st when sinners cry,
O thou, to whose all-searching sight,
Our Lord is risen from the dead,
Oh where shall rest be found,
Peace, troubled soul, whose plaintive
moan,
Praise to God, immortal praise,
Prayer is the soul's sincere desire,
Rich are the joys which cannot die,.
Rise, crown'd with light, imperial

Rise, my soul, and stretch thy wings,
Rise, O my soul, the bours review,
Rock of ages! cleft for me,
Salvation doth to God belong,
Salvation! O the joyful sound,

Saviour, when in dust, to thee,

tempest is streaming,

When we are raised from deep distress, 26
While angels thus, O Lord, rejoice, 11
While shepherds watch'd their flocks
by night,

7 While thee I seek, protecting power,
43 With joy shall I behold the day,

The race that long in darkness pined, 12
The Saviour, when to heaven he rose,
20 There is a land of pure delight,
42 The spacious firmament on high,
38 The spirit in our hearts,

17 This is the day the Lord hath made,
20 Thou art the way; to thee alone,
29 Though I should seek to wash me clean, 6
23 Thou, God, all glory, honor, power,

To thee let my first off'rings rise,

18 Triumphant Zion! lift thy head,
28 Vital spark of heavenly flame,
25 We give immortal praise,

Welcome, sweet day of rest,
