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.

3 He speaks, and, listening to his voice,

New life the dead receive;
The mournful, broken hearts rejoice,
The humble

poor

believe. 4 Hear him, ye deaf : his praise, ye dumb,

Your loosened tongues employ :
Ye blind, behold

your
And leap, ye lame, for joy.

Saviour come,

HYMN 216. P. M. [#]

Jesus our King.
1 YE servants of Christ,

Your Master proclaim,
And publish abroad

His wonderful name :
The name all-victorious

Of Jesus extol ;
His kingdom is glorious,

And rules over all.
2 He ruleth on high,

Almighty to save,
And still he is nigh ;

His presence we have :
The great congregation

His triumph shall sing,
Ascribing salvation

To Jesus our King.
3 Then let us adore,

And give him his right,
All glory and power,

And wisdom and might;

All honour and blessing,

With angels above,
And thanks never ceasing,

And infinite love.

HYMN 217. C. M. [#]

Worthy the Lamb. 1 Come, let us join our cheerful

songs With angels round the throne ; Ten thousand thousand are their tongues,

But all their joys are one.
2 Worthy the Lamb that died, they cry,

To be exalted thus :
Worthy the Lamb, our lips reply,

For he was slain for us. 3 Jesus is worthy to receive

Honour and power divine ;
And blessings, more than we can give,

Be, Lord, for ever thine.
4 Let all that dwell above the sky,

And air, and earth, and seas,
Conspire to lift thy glories high,

And speak thine endless praise. 5 The whole creation join in one,

To bless the sacred name
Of him that sits upon the throne,

And to adore the Lamb.

HYMN 218. C. M. [#]

Praise to the Lamb.
1 BEHOLD the glories of the Lamb

Amidst his Father's throne :
Prepare new honours for his name,

And songs before unknown. 2 Let elders worship at his feet,

The church adore around, With vials full of odours sweet,

And harps of sweeter sound. 3 Now to the Lamb, that once was slain,

Be endless blessings paid ;
Salvation, glory, joy, remain

Forever on his head. 4 He has redeemed our souls with blood;

Has set us free from sin;
Has made us kings and priests to God,

And we shall reign with him. 5 The worlds of nature and of

grace Are put beneath his power : Then shorten these delaying days,

And bring the promised hour.

HYMN 219. 8 & 7s. M. [#]

Address to Jesus. 1 Love divine, all love excelling,

Joy of heaven, to earth come down, Fix in us thy humble dwelling;

All thy faithful mercies crown:
