Open upon our sight,
And day disperse the night?
With healing in his wings,
With love's eternal springs?
Its brightness shall unfold
While we with joy behold. 4 A new creation then shall rise
By the Almighty's hand,
The new shall always stand.
HYMN 285. C. M. [#]
New Jerusalem descending. 1 Lo, what a glorious sight appears
To our believing eyes !
That holy, happy place,
Adorned with shining grace.
3 Attending angels shout for joy,
Celestial armies sing ;
Of your descending King.
From every weeping eye ;
And death itself, shall die.
Shall this bright hour delay?
And bring the welcome day.
GRACE AND SALVATION.
HYMN 286. L. M. [#]
Salvation by Grace. 1 Now to the
of God supreme Be everlasting honours given; He saves from sin,—we bless his name,
And calls our wandering feet to heaven 2 Not for our duties or deserts,
But of his own abundant grace, He works salvation in our hearts,
And forms a people for his praise. 3 'Twas his own purpose that begun
To rescue sinners doomed to die;
He gave us grace in Christ his Son,
Before he spread the starry sky. 4 Jesus, the Lord, appeared at last,
And made his Father's counsels known; Declared the great transactions past,
And brought immortal blessings down. 5 He died ! and, in that dreadful night,
Did all the powers of death destroy ; Rising, he brought our heaven to light,
And took possession of the joy.
HYMN 287. L. M. [#]
Morn of Salvation.
Salvation in Immanuel's birth !
'Twas peace on earth, good will to man.
To strike the harp on Salem's towers ?
The balm of healing in her wings?
No longer loads the passing gale ;
And nature owns the sovereign charm. 4 She comes ! and banner, spear and plume,
That led to conquest and the tomb,
HYMN 288. C. M. [#]
Salvation. 1 SalvatION! O the joyful sound !
'Tis pleasure to our ears ; A sovereign balm for every wound,
A cordial for our fears. 2 Buried in sorrow and in sin,
At death's dark door we lay ; But we arise, by grace divine,
To see a heavenly day. 3 Salvation ! let the echo fly
The spacious earth around, While all the armies of the sky
Conspire to raise the sound.
HYMN 289. L. M. [#]
Salvation by Christ. 1 SALVATION is for ever nigh
The souls that love and trust the Lord; And grace, descending from on high,
Fresh hopes of glory shall afford. 2 Now truth and mercy meet on earth,
In Christ, for our salvation given ;
He fits us for the courts of heaven. 3 His peace and glory shall abound,
Religion dwell on earth again ;
In our Redeemer's gentle reign.
4 By him we have access to God;
Our wandering feet shall stray no more ; While his salvation shines abroad,
We'll praise his justice, love, and power.
HYMN 290. S. M. [#]
Praise for Salvation. 1 Sing to Jehovah's name,
And in his strength rejoice;
Exalted be our voice.
And hymns of honour sing;
The whole creation's King. 3 Let princes, angels, know,
How mean their natures seem;
When once compared with him. 4 Earth, with its caverns deep,
Lies in his spacious hand;
And where the hills must stand. 5 Come, humble souls, adore,
Come, kneel before his face;
