C. M.
General Invitation to praise the Redeemer.

FOR a thousand tongues, to sing

My great 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 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.
4 He breaks the power of cancelld sin,

He sets the pris'ner free;
His blood can make the foulest clean;

His blood avail'd for me. 5 He speaks,—and, list'ning to his voice,

New life the dead receive;
The mournful, broken hearts rejoice;

The humble poor believe. 6 Hear him, ye deaf; his praise, ye dumb,

Your loosen'd tongues employ;
Ye blind, behold your Saviour come;

And leap, ye lame, for joy.

S. M.
The song of Moses and the Lamb.
WAKE, and sing the song

Of Moses and the Lamb;
Wake, every heart and every tongue,

To praise the Saviour's Name.
2 Sing of his dying love;

Sing of his rising power;
Sing how he intercedes above

For those whose sins he bore.
3 Ye pilgrims, on the road

To Zion's city, sing;
Rejoice ye in the Lamb of God, -

In Christ, the eternal King.
4 Soon shall we hear him say,–

Ye blessed children, come;
Soon will he call us hence away,

To our eternal home.
5 There shall each raptured tongue

His endless praise proclaim;
And sweeter voices tune the song

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.
2 He now stands knocking at the door

Of every sinner's heart:
The worst need keep him out no more,

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.

COM

4 Come quickly in, thou heavenly guest,

Nor ever hence remove;
But sup with us, and let the feast

Be everlasting love. 4

C. M.
The Lamb worshipped on earth and in heaven.
NOME, let us join our cheerful songs

With angels round the throne :
Ten thousand thousand are their tongues,

But all their joys are one. 2 Worthy the Lamb that died, they cry,

To be exalted thus :
Worthy the Lamb, our hearts reply,

For he was slain for us.
3 Jesus is worthy to receive

Honour and power divine;
And blessings more than we can give,

Be, Lord, forever thine.
4 The whole creation join in one,

To bless the sacred name
Of Him that sits upon the throne,

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.

C. M.
The glories of our King.
IOME, ye that love the Saviour's name,

And joy to make it known,
The Sov’reign of your hearts proclaim,

And bow before his throne. 2 Behold your Lord, your Master, crown'd

With glories all divine:
And tell the wond'ring nations round,

How bright those glories shine.
3 When, in his earthly courts, we view

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.
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, suff'ring, 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 redeem'd above,
Blessing and honour 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, 0 Grave ?
6 Then hallelujah! power and praise

To God in Christ be given ;
May all who now this anthem 'raise,

Renew the song in heaven.

9th P. M. 87, 87.
Glory to the Lamb.
TARK! the notes of angels, singing,

Gloryglory to the Lamb!
All in heaven their tribute bringing,

Raising high the Saviour's name.
2 Ye for whom his life was given,

Sacred themes to you belong :
Come, assist the choir of heaven;

Join the everlasting song.
3 Filld with holy emulation,

We unite with those above:
Sweet the theme—a free salvation-

Fruit of everlasting love.
4 Endless life in him possessing,

Let us praise his precious name;
Glory, honour, power, and blessing,

Be forever to the Lamb.
