INTRODUCTORY TO WORSHIP.
FOR a thousand tongues, to sing
My great Redeemer's praise; The glories of my God and King,
The triumphs of his grace.
Assist me to proclaim,-
The honours of thy Name. 3 Jesus !—the Name that charms our fears,
That bids our sorrows cease ; 'Tis music in the sinner's ears,
'Tis life, and health, and peace.
He sets the pris'ner free;
His blood avail'd for me. 5 He speaks,—and, list'ning to his voice,
New life the dead receive;
The humble poor believe. 6 Hear him, ye deaf; his praise, ye dumb,
Your loosen'd tongues employ;
And leap, ye lame, for joy.
Of Moses and the Lamb;
To praise the Saviour's Name.
Sing of his rising power;
For those whose sins he bore.
To Zion's city, sing;
In Christ, the eternal King.
Ye blessed children, come;
To our eternal home.
His endless praise proclaim;
Of Moses and the Lamb. 3
C. M. The heavenly Guest. COME,
let us who in Christ believe, To him, with joyful voices, give
The glory of his grace.
Of every sinner's heart:
Or force him to depart. 3 Through grace we hearken to thy voice,
Yield to be saved from sin; In sure and certain hope rejoice,
That thou wilt enter in.
4 Come quickly in, thou heavenly guest,
Nor ever hence remove;
Be everlasting love. 4
With angels round the throne :
But all their joys are one. 2 Worthy the Lamb that died, they cry,
To be exalted thus :
For he was slain for us.
Honour and power divine;
Be, Lord, forever thine.
To bless the sacred name
And to adore the Lamb. 5
L. M. Jesus reigns. 1OME, let us tune our loftiest song,
And raise to Christ our joyful strain; Worship and thanks to Him belong,
Who reigns, and shall forever reign. 2 His sov’reign power our bodies made;
Our souls are his immortal breath; And when his creatures sinn'd, he bled,
To save us from eternal death. 3 Burn every breast with Jesus' love;
Bound every heart with raptrous joy ; And saints on earth, with saints above, Their voices in his praise employ.
4 Extol the Lamb with loftiest song,
Ascend for him our cheerful strain; Worship and thanks to Him belong,
Who reigns, and shall forever reign.
And joy to make it known,
And bow before his throne. 2 Behold your Lord, your Master, crown'd
With glories all divine:
How bright those glories shine.
The glories of our King, We long to love as angels do,
And wish, like them, to sing. 4 And shall we long and wish in vain ?
Lord, teach our songs to rise : Thy love can animate the strain,
And bid it reach the skies.
C. M. Joining the song of the Church triumphant. NING we the
we the song of those who stand Around the' eternal throne, Of every kindred, clime, and land,
A multitude unknown.
To-day the young, the old,
One shepherd and one fold,
3 Toil, trial, suff'ring, still await
On earth the pilgrim throng;
The Church triumphant's song.
Cry the redeem'd above,
And everlasting love.
Who died our souls to save;
Thy victory, 0 Grave ?
To God in Christ be given ;
Renew the song in heaven.
9th P. M. 87, 87.
Gloryglory to the Lamb!
Raising high the Saviour's name.
Sacred themes to you belong :
Join the everlasting song.
We unite with those above:
Fruit of everlasting love.
Let us praise his precious name;
Be forever to the Lamb.
