2 Israel's strength and consolation,
3 Born thy people to deliver,
Born a child, yet God our King,
Now thy gracious kingdom bring.
4 By thine own eternal Spirit,
Rule in all our hearts alone;
Humiliation of Christ.
1 AND did the holy and the just,
2 Yes, the Redeemer left his throne,
3 He took the dying traitor's place, And suffered in his stead;
For sinful man, · O, wondrous grace!·
For sinful man he bled.
4 O Lord, what heavenly wonders dwell
Design of Christ's Advent.
1 HARK! the glad sound! the Saviour comes, The Saviour promised long!
Let every heart prepare a throne,
2 He comes, the prisoner to release, In Satan's bondage held;
The gates of brass before him burst,
3 He comes, from thickest films of vice To clear the mental ray,
And on the eyes oppressed with night
4 He comes, the broken heart to bind,
5 Our glad hosannas, Prince of Peace,
Object of Christ's Advent.
2 Such was the pity of our God,
He loved the race of man so well,
Of sins, and save our souls from hell.
3 Sinners, believe the Saviour's word;
1 JOY to the world! the Lord is come!
Let every heart prepare him room,
2 Joy to the earth! the Saviour reigns! Let men their songs employ;
While fields, and floods, rocks, hills, anu plains, Repeat the sounding joy.
3 No more let sins and sorrows grow,
He comes to make his blessings flow
4 He rules the world with truth and grace, And makes the nations prove
The glories of his righteousness,
Christ's first and second Coming.
1 SING to the Lord, ye distant lands,
2 Say to the nations, Jesus reigns,
3 Let heaven proclaim the joyful day;
4 Let new seraphic joy surprise
Ye mountains, sink; ye valleys, rise;
5 Behold, he comes! he comes to bless
To show the world his righteousness,
6 But when his voice shall raise the dead, And bid the world draw near,
How will the guilty nations dread
2 No royal pomp adorns
This King of righteousness;
3 The Spirit of the Lord,
4 He is the Light of men;
His doctrine life imparts;
Christ the Substance of the Levitical Priesthood.
So fly the shadows and the stars
2 The smoking sweet and bleeding lamb
And costly spice, of every name,
3 Aaron must lay his robes away,
When Christ, the Lord, comes down to be
4 He took our mortal flesh, to show
For us he paid his life below,
5 "Forgive," he cries, "forgive their sins,
A Light to lighten the Gentiles.
The people dwell in day, who dwelt
2 To hail thy rise, thou better Sun,
3 To us a Child of hope is born,
And him shall all the earth obey,
4 His name shall be the Prince of Peace,
The Wonderful, the Counsellor,
5 His power increasing still shall spread;
Miracles of Christ.
1 AND didst thou, Jesus, condescend,
To heal the sick, the lame, the blind,
2 Didst thou regard the beggar's cry,
3 And didst thou pity mortal woe,
4 Didst thou thy trembling servant raise,
I perish, Lord; O, save my soul;
