HYMN 210. P. M. [#]

Blessing of Christ's Kingdom. 1 Hail to the Lord's Anointed,

Great David's greater Son !
Hail, in the time appointed,

His reign on earth begun!
He comes to break oppression,

To set the captive free,
To take away transgression,

And rule in equity.
2 He comes, with succour speedy,

To those who suffer wrong,
To help the poor and needy,

And bid the weak be strong ;
To give them songs for sighing,

Their darkness turn to light,
Whose souls, condemned and dying,

Were precious in his sight. 3 O’er every foe victorious,

He on his throne shall rest,
From age to age niore glorious,

All-blessing and all-blest :
The tide of time shall never

His covenant remove ;
His name shall stand forever;
That name to us is Love.

HYMN 211. L. M. [#]

Universal Triumph of Christ.
1 Jesus shall reign where'er the sun

Does his successive journeys run;
His kingdom stretch from shore to shore,

Till moons shall wax and wane no more. 2 For this shall constant prayer be made,

And praises throng to crown his head:
His name like sweet perfume shall rise

With every morning sacrifice.
3 People and realms of every tongue

Dwell on his love with sweetest song;
And infant voices shall proclaim

Their early blessings on his name.
4 Blessings abound where'er he reigns ;

The prisoner leaps to loose his chains;
The
weary

find eternal rest,
And all the sons of want are blest.
5 Where he displays his healing power

Death and the curse are known no more:
In him the tribes of Adam boast

More blessings than their father lost. 6 Let every creature rise and bring

Peculiar honours to their King,
Angels descend with songs again,
And earth repeat the long Amen.

HYMN 212. 7s. M. [#]

Christ's Triumph.
1 HARK! the song of jubilee,

Loud as mighty thunders roar,
Or the fulness of the sea,

When it breaks upon the shore ;-
Hallelujah to the Lord !

God omnipotent shall reign ;
Hallelujah ! let the word

Echo round the earth and main.
2 Hallelujah !-hark! the sound,

Heard through earth, and through the skies,
Wakes above, beneath, around,

All creation's harmonies :
See Jehovah's banner furled,

Sheathed his sword; he speaks,—'tis done!
And the kingdoms of this world

Are the kingdoms of his Son.
3 He shall reign from pole to pole

With illimitable sway ;
He shall reign when, like a scroll,

Yonder heavens are passed away :
Then the end ;-beneath his rod

Man's last enemy shall fall :
Hallelujah! Christ in God,

God in Christ, is all in all.

THE REDEEMER'S PRAISE.

HYMN 213. C. M. [#]

Coronation of Christ.
1 All hail the power of Jesus' name!

Let angels prostrate fall :
Bring forth the royal diadem,

And own him Lord of all.
2 Ye wandering seed of Israel's race,

A remnant weak and small,
Praise him who saves you by his grace,

And own him Lord of all.
3 Ye Gentile sinners, ne'er forget

The wormwood and the gall;
Go, spread your trophies at his feet,

And own him Lord of all. 4 Babes, men, and sires, who know his love,

Who feel your sin and thrall,
Now join with all the hosts above,

And own him Lord of all.
5 And when with yonder sacred throng

We at his feet shall fall,
We'll chant the everlasting song,

And own him Lord of all.

HYMN 214. L. M. [#]

Ascriptions to Christ. 1 Lo, what enraptured songs of praise

Resound through heaven to Christ the Lamb ! Adoring angels on him gaze,

And swell the golden trump of fame. 2 Amid his smiles and glories bright

Transported millions round him bend, And, robed in life's primeval light,

The honours of his cross extend. 3 Salvation to the Lamb, they cry,

That sits upon the shining throne, Who once for sinful men did die,

That he might seek and bring them home. 4 Hosanna ! all have joined the song,

In heaven, in earth, and in the seas; Salvation sounds from every tongue

In swelling notes of ceaseless praise.

HYMN 215. C. M. [#]

Redeemer's Praise.
1 O, FOR a thousand tongues, to sing

My dear Redeemer's praise,
The glories of my Lord and King,

The triumphs of his grace!
2 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.
