2 Thou standest in the holiest place,
3 We need not now go up to heaven To bring the long-sought Saviour down; Thou art to all already given,
Thou dost e'en now thy banquet crown;To every faithful soul appear, And show thy real presence here.
A foretaste of glory.
WHAT delight is this,
2 When He the table spreads,
3 The Lamb for sinners slain,
4 Let earth and heaven be join'd,
And hymn the Saviour of mankind
Rejoicing at the table, with godly sorrow.
TO Jesus, our exalted Lord,
The Name by heaven and earth adored, Fain would our hearts and voices raise A cheerful song of sacred praise.
2 But all the notes which mortals know,
9th P. M. 87, 87, 87, 87.
All his suff'rings for mankind:
Now the living fire impart; Now reveal his great salvation Unto every faithful heart.
2 Come, thou Witness of his dying;
Christ to every soul, and mine:
Universal gladness and joy.
GLORY to God on highth Heaven;
The Son of God came down to die,
2 His precious blood was shed,
4 The Father gives the Son;
9th P. M. 87, 87, 87, 87. The heavenly banquet.
ESUS spreads his banner o'er us,
In remembrance, Lord, of thee. 2 In thy holy incarnation,
When the angels sang thy birth; In thy fasting and temptation;
In thy labours on the earth;
In thy suff'rings on the tree;
5th P. M. 4 lines 7s.
ONS of God, triumphant rise; Shout the' accomplish'd sacrifice; Shout your sins in Christ forgiven,Sons of God, and heirs of heaven.
2 Love's mysterious work is done;
3 Him by faith we taste below,
12th P. M. 76, 76, 78, 76. For a parting blessing.
AMB of God, whose dying love
And bid us go
2 By thine agonizing pain,
3 Let thy blood, by faith applied,
And all our sickness heal:
By thy passion on the tree,
Let all our griefs and troubles cease;
O remember Calvary,
And bid us go in peace!
10th P. M. 8 lines 8s.
The Fountain of living waters. FOUNTAIN of life and of grace In Christ, our Redeemer, we see: For us, who his offers embrace, For all, it is open and free: Jehovah, himself, doth invite
To drink of his pleasures unknown: The streams of immortal delight,
That flow from his heavenly throne. 2 As soon as in him we believe,
By faith of his Spirit we take: And, freely forgiven, receive
The mercy for Jesus's sake! We gain a pure drop of his love; The life of eternity know; Angelical happiness prove,
And witness a heaven below.
All-sufficiency of the gospel.
HE gospel! O, what endless charms Dwell in that blissful sound; Its influence every fear disarms, And spreads delight around.
2 Here pardon, life, and joy divine, In rich effusion flow,
For guilty rebels, lost in sin,
And doom'd to endless wo.
3 The' almighty Former of the skies Stoops to our vile abode;
While angels view with wond'ring eyes, And hail the' incarnate God.
