Jesus reigns the God of love:
Jesus rules the world alone.
All above, and gives worth; Lord of life—thy smile enlightens,
Cheers, and charms thy saints on earth : When we think of love like thine,
Lord, we own it love divine.
Thine an everlasting crown:
Those whom thou hast made thine own; Happy objects of thy grace,
Destined to behold thy face. 4 Saviour, hasten thine appearing ;
Bring-oh bring the glorious day,
Heaven and earth shall pass away :
Es & 7s. 88
Worthy is the Lamb.
“Glory, glory to the Lainb!"
Raising high the Saviour's name. 2 Ye, for whom his life was given,
Sacred themes to you belong :
Join the everlasting song. 3 Filled with holy emulation,
Let us vie with those above :
Sweet the theme—a free salvation !
Fruit of everlasting love.
Let us praise his precious name:
Be forever to the Lamb.
L. M. 89
Christ cxalted to be a Prince and Saviour.
And seraphs bow at thy command. 2 Exalted Saviour! we confess
The sovereign triumphs of thy grace;
C. M. 90
Christ crowned as Lord of All.
Let angels prostrate fall:
And crown him LORD OF ALL.
Who from his altar call;
And crown him LORD OF ALL. 3 Ye chosen seed of Israel's race,
A remnant weak and small, Hail him, who saves you by his grace,
And crown him LORD OF ALL. 4 Ye gentile sinners, ne'er forget
The wormwood and the gall;
Go spread your trophies at his feet,
And crown him LORD OF ALL. 5 Let every kindred-every tribe,
On this terrestrial ball, To him all majesty ascribe,
And crown him LORD OF ALL.
6s & 4s. 91
Christ's final Triumph.
Each creature sing-
“ Jesus is King."
What wonders done!
“ Victory is won.
With joyful voice.
Lo, he shall come!
His promise shall not fail;
Great Saviour, come. 92
Pity and Condescension of Christ.
Dwell in that blissful sound !
And spreads delight around.
In rich effusion flow,
And doomed to endless wo.
Stoops to our vile abode;
And hail th' incarnate God.
Of bliss, a boundless store !
I cannot wish for more!
Beneath thy cross I fall;
L. M. 93
Safe trusting in Christ.
Thy head, my Saviour, and my Lord;
And writ the blessings in thy word. 2 In vain the trembling conscience seeks
Some solid ground to rest upon;
With deep despair—the spirit breaks,
Till we apply to Christ alone. 3 How well thy blessed truths agree!
How wise and holy thy commands ! Thy promises—how firm they be! How firm our hope, our comfort stands!
L. M. 94
Safe trusting in Christ. JESUS, no other name but thine
Is given by everlasting love, To lead our souls to joys divine;
No other name will God approve. 2 Here let my constant feet abide,
Nor from the heavenly way depart! Let thy good Spirit be my guide,
Direct my steps—and rule my heart. 3 In thee, my great almighty Friend,
My safety dwells—and peace divine; On thee alone my hopes depend, For life, eternal life is thine,
Sing of his redeeming love.
Welcome all to Jesus' rest.
Nothing but redeeming love.
His inveterate foes, and ours :
