26th P. M. 76, 76, 76, 76. Grateful praise.
E bring no glitt'ring treasures,
We come, with simple measures,
Their voice of thanks would raise;
Our song of grateful praise.
To guide our steps in youth;
3 Redeemer! grant thy blessing!
May tread life's onward way;
Hosanna to the Son of David. HAT are those soul-reviving strains Which echo thus from Salem's plains? What anthems loud, and louder still, So sweetly sound from Zion's hill?
2 Lo! 'tis an infant chorus sings
3 Nor these alone their voice shall raise,
4 Messiah's name shall joy impart
5 Proclaim hosannas, loud and clear;
Children in heaven.
THERE is a glorious world of light,
Where saints departed, clothed in white,
2 And hark, amid the sacred songs
Ten thousand thousand infant tongues
3 These are the hymns that we shall know, If Jesus we obey;
That is the place where we shall go,
4 Soon will our earthly race be run-
5 Great God, impress this serious thought, To-day, on every breast;
That both the teachers and the taught
Deprecating the anger of God.
EHOLD, O Lord! before thy throne
'Tis on thy sov'reign grace alone
2 Tremendous judgments from thy hand Thy dreadful power display; Yet mercy spares this guilty land,
And yet we live to pray.
3 And why, great God, are we thus spared, Ungrateful as we are?
O make thine awful warnings heard,
4 0 turn us, turn us, blessed Lord,
Then shall our hearts obey thy word,
5 Hear thou our prayers, and grant us aid; Bid wars forever cease:
Heal every breach that sin has made,
9th P. M. 87, 87.
Pardon implored for national sins.
3 Though our sins, our hearts confounding, Long and loud for vengeance call, Thou hast mercy more abounding;
Jesus' blood can cleanse them all. 4 Let that mercy veil transgression ; Let that blood our guilt efface: Save thy people from oppression; Save from spoil thy holy place. 1020
OME, let our souls adore the Lord,
2 Great is our guilt, our fears are great, But let us not despair;
Still open is the mercy-seat
4 Though justice near thy awful throne Attends thy dread command,
Lord, hear thy servants, hear thy Son, And save a guilty land.
The day of vengeance.
call obeyThe latest call of grace:
The day is come, the vengeful day
Devils and men combine
To plague the faithless seed, And phials full of wrath divine Are bursting on your head. 2 Enter into the Rock,
Ye trembling slaves of sin-
He did the cross endure; Enter into the clefts, and rest In Jesus' wounds secure.
