3 Here the whole Deity is known; Nor dares a creature guess—


e Which of the glories brightest shoneThe justice or the grace.


b 4 Now the full glories of the Lamb
Adorn the heavenly plains:

Bright seraphs learn Emmanuel's name,
And try their choicest strains.

o 5 O may I bear some humble part In that immortal song!

s Wonder and joy shall tune my heart, And love command my tongue.

HYMN 30. 6 & 4. C. M. Bermondsey. [*] Worthy the Lamb. Rev. v. 12.


Let heaven and earth reply-
Praise ye his Name!
-His love and grace adore,
e Who all our sorrows bore';
-And sing for evermore-
Worthy the Lamb.


-2 All they around the throne
o Cheerfully join in one,
Praising his Name;

We, who have felt his blood
Sealing our peace with God,
Sound his dear Name abroad-
Worthy the Lamb.


-3 Join, all ye ransomed race,
Our Lord and God to bless;
0 Praise ye his name:
o In him we will rejoice,
And make a joyful noise,
o Shouting with heart and voice-
Worthy the Lamb.


• 4 What though we change our place-Yet we shall never cease

Praising his name:

o To him our songs we bring-
Hail him our gracious King,
And without ceasing sing,
Worthy the Lamb.


HYMN 31. L. M. Munich. Moreton. [*]

Christ's Intercession. Heb. vii. 25.

E lives-the great Redeemer lives;

joy assurance gives


-And now before his Father God,
Pleads the full merits of his blood.

e 2 Repeated crimes awake our fears,
And justice, armed with frowns, appears;
-But in the Saviour's lovely face,
o Sweet mercy smiles-and all is peace!

-3 Hence, then, ye black, despairing thoughts--
Above our fears, above our faults,
• His powerful intercessions rise;
And guilt recedes, and terror dies.
e 4 In every dark, distressful hour,

When sin and Satan join their power,
-Let this dear hope repel the dart-

That Jesus bears us on his heart.

5 Great Advocate, almighty Friend! On him our humble hopes depend; • Our cause can never, never fail, For Jesus pleads, and must prevail.

HYMN 32. 8 & 7. Calvary. [*]

Praise to the Redeemer.

1H bring;

AIL, thou once despised Jesus!

By thy death thou didst release us
From the tyrant's deadly sting.
2 Paschal Lamb, by God appointed,
All our sins on thee were laid;
Great High Priest, by God anointed,
Thou hast full atonement made.
3 Contrite sinners are forgiven,

Through the virtue of thy blood:
Opened is the gate of heaven,

Peace is made for man with God.


g 4 Jesus, hail! enthroned in glory
There forever to abide;
All the heavenly hosts adore thee,
Seated at thy Father's side

e 5 There for sinners thou art pleading; There thou dost our place prepare ; Ever for us interceding,

Till in heaven we appear.

o 6 Glory, honour, power and blessing,
Thou art worthy to receive;
• Loudest praises, without ceasing,
Meet it is for us to give.

HYMN 33. 7s. Redeeming Love. [*]

Redeeming Love.

Now begin the heavenly theme,

0 1
in name;
-Ye who Jesus' kindness prove,
Triumph in redeeming love.

2 Ye who see the Father's grace, Beaming in the Saviour's face, o As to Canaan on ye move, Praise and bless redeeming love.

e 3 Mourning souls, dry up your tears, Banish all your guilty fears;

• See your guilt and curse remove, Cancelled by redeeming love.

e 4 Ye, alas! who long have been Willing slaves of death and sin! -Now from bliss no longer rove;

Stop, and taste redeeming love.

o 5 Welcome, all by sin oppressed-
Welcome to his sacred rest:
d Nothing brought him from above,
Nothing-but redeeming love.


o 6 He subdued th' infernal powers;
His tremendous foes and ours
From their cursed empire drove,
Mighty in redeeming love.

o 7 Hither, then, your music bring,
u Strike aloud each joyful string;
-Mortals, join the hosts above-
g Join to praise redeeming love


HYMN 34. C. M. Windsor. Plymouth. [*]

The Necessity of Renewing Grace.

OW helpless guilty nature lies,
Unconscious of its load!


e 1

e The heart, unchanged, can never rise To happiness and God.

p 2 The will perverse, the passions blind,
In paths of ruin stray;

Reason, debased, can never find
The safe, the narrow way.

e 3 Can aught, beneath a power divine, The stubborn will subdue?

• 'Tis thine, almighty Saviour, thine, To form the heart anew.

4 'Tis thine the passions to recall,
And upward bid them rise;
And make the scales of error fall,
From reason's darkened eyes.

5 To chase the shades of death away, And bid the sinner live;

A beam of heaven, a vital ray"Tis thine alone to give.


6 O change these wretched hearts of ours, And give them life divine!

o Then shall our passions and our powers, Almighty Lord, be thine!

HYMN 35. S. M.

Prayer for the Spirit. John xiv. 26.
OME, Holy Spirit, come,


Dispel the sorrow from our minds-
The darkness from our eyes.

2 Convince us of our sin;
Then lead to Jesus' blood;
And to our wondering view reveal
The secret love of God.

3 Revive our drooping faith;
Our doubts and fears remove;
And kindle in our breasts the flame
Of never-dying love.

4 "Tis thine to cleanse the heart-
To sanctify the soul-

To pour fresh life in every part,
And new-create the whole.

o 5 Dwell, Spirit, in our hearts;
Our minds from bondage free;
• Then shall we know, and praise, and love,
The Father, Son, and Thee.

e 2 Rest for my soul I long to find:
Saviour of all, if mine thou art-
Give me thy meek, thy lowly mind,
And stamp thine image on my heart.
-3 Break off the yoke of inbred sin,
And fully set my spirit free;
I cannot rest till pure within,
Till I am wholly lost in thee.

HYMN 36. L. M. Carthage. [b]
Sorrow for Sin.



THAT load of sin were gone!
O that I could at last submit!
At Jesus' feet to lay me down-
To lay my soul at Jesus' feet.

4 Fain would I learn of thee, my God;
Thy light and easy burden prove-
The cross, all stained with hallowed blood-
The labour of thy dying love.

d 5 I would-but thou must give the power:
My heart from every sin release;
Bring near, bring near the joyful hour,
And fill me with thy perfect peace.

o 6 Come, Lord, the drooping sinner cheer,
Nor let thy chariot wheels delay;
Appear, in my poor heart appear;
My God, my Saviour, come away.


2 Yet sovereign mercy calls-"Return . ̈* Dear Lord, and may I come

HYMN 37. C. M. Canterbury. Wantage. [b] Repentance.

1HOW oft, alas! this wretched heart

Has from the Lord! How oft my roving thoughts depart, Forgetful of his word!"
