HYMN 28. B. 3. 1st S. M.

Dover, Silver-Street. 1 LET God the Father live

Forever on our tongues :
Sinners from his first love derive

The ground of all their songs. 2 Ye saints, employ your breath

In honour to the Son,
Who bought your souls from hell and death

By offering up his own. 3 Give to the Spirit praise

Of an immortal strain,
Whose light and power and grace conveys

Salvation down to men.
While God the Comforter

Reveals our pardon'd sin,
O may the blood and water bear

The same record within!
5 To the great One in Three,

That seal this grace in heaven,
The Father, Son, and Spirit, be

Eternal glory given.

Who reigns on a superior throne;

Who brings salvation down to earth.

In this delightful work engage ;
Old men and babes in Sion sing
The growing glories of her King.

With blessings on his name.

Hosanna to Christ.
1 HOSANNA to the royal Son

Of David's ancient line;
His natures two, his person one,

Mysterious and divine.

And offspring is the same; Eternity and time are join'd

In our Immanuel's name. 3 Bless'd He that comes to wretched men

With peaceful news froin heaven; Hosannas of the highest strain

To Christ the Lord be given ! 4 Let mortals ne'er refuse to take

Th’ hosanna on their tongues, Lest rocks and stones should rise, and break

Their silence into songs.
