Sin fubdued, death destroy'd, man redeemed,

These are glorious works divine. 3 People, nations, tongues and kindreds !

Hail, all hail the mighty God:
Praise Jehovah frong in battle :
Shont the garment rollid in blood.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
High hofannas shout abroad. :
HYMN CCXXXVIII. L. M. EN .]

The Truth and Faithfulnefs of God.:
YE
E humble saints, proclaim abroad,

The honors of a faithful God,
How jult and true are all his ways,

How much above your highest praise ! ; 2 The words his sacred lips declare,

Of his own mind the image bear :
What should him tempt, from frailty free,

Bieit in his self-füfficiency?
3 He will not his great felf deny :

A God all truth can never lie :
As well might he his being quit,

As break his oath, or word forget.
4 Let frighten'd rivers change their courses

Or backward hasten to their fource ;
Swift thro' the air let rocks be huri'd,

And mountains like the chaff be whirl'd, $ Let fun and stars forget to rise,

Or quit their stations in the skies;
Let Heav'n and earth both pass away,
Eternal truth shall ne'er decay.

6 True to his word, God gave his Son,

To die for crimes which men had done ;
Blest pledge! he never will revoke,

A single promise he has spoke.
HYMN CCXXXIX. P. M. [RIPPON'S COLL]

Sealing their peace with God,

Yet we shall never cease

Hail him our gracious: King;
And without cealing fing,

Worthy the Lamb. 6 Then let the hosts above, In realms of endless love,

Praise his dear name :
To him ascribed be
Honor and majesty,
Thro' all Eternity ;

Worthy the Lamb.
HYMN CCXL. L.M. [DAVIES.

The Pardoning God.
GREA

REAT God of wonders ! all thy ways

Are matchless, godlike, and divide ;.
But the fair glories of thy grace
More godlike and unrival'd shine :
Who is a pard’ning God like thee?

Or who has grace so rich and free? 2 Crimes of such horror to forgive,

Such guilty daring worms to spare,
This is thy grand prerogative,
And none fall in the horor share,
Who is a pard’ning God like thee?
Or who has grace lo rich and free ?

[ocr errors]

3 Angels and men, resign your claim

To pity, mercy, love and grace ;
These glorious crown Jehovah's Bame
With an incomparable blaze.
Who is a pard'ning God like thee?

Or who has grace fo rich and free? 4 In wonder lot, with trembling joy,

We take the pardon of our God,
Pardor, for crimes of deepest dye,
A pardon feal'd with Jesus' blood.
Who is a pard’ning God like thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?
HYMN CCXLI. C. m. [DODDRIDGE.]

Pardon spoken by Chrift.
MY

Saviour, let me hear thy voice

Pronounce the words of peace ! And all my warmest pow'rs fhall join

To celebrate thy grace.
2 With gentle fmiles call me thy child,

And speak my fins forgiv'n :
The accents mild fhall charm mine ear;

All like the harps of heav'n.
3 Cheerful, where'er thy hand snall lead,

The darkest path I'll tread ; - Cheerful I'll quit these mortal hores,

And mingle with the dead. 4

When dreadful guilt is done away,
No other fears we know ;
That hand, which scatters pardon down,
Shall crowns of life bestow.

HYMN CCXLII.

C. M. [RIPPON'S COLL.]

The Universal prayer. LET the Indian, let the negro,

Let the rude barbarian see, That divine and glorious conquest, Once obtain'd on Calvary ; Let the gospel, let the gospel, let the gospel,

Loud resound from pole to pole.
2 Kingdoms wide that fit in darkness,

Let them have the glorious light,
And from eastern coast to western,
May the morning chase the night, [demption,
And redemption, and redemption, and re-

Freely purchas'd, win the day.
3 May the glorious day approaching,

From eternal darkness dawn,
And the everlasting gospel
Spread abroad, thy holy name ; [ers
All the borders, all the borders, all the bord-

Of the great Immanuel's land.
4 Fly abroad, thou mighty gospel,

Win and conquer, never cease ;
May thy lasting wide dominion,
Multiply, and Atill increase ;
Sway thy sceptre, fway thy sceptre, fway thy
Saviour, all the world around. [sceptre,
