The world admires her heavenly dress,
3 He forms her beauties like his own,
So shall the King the more rejoice
6 Let endless honours crown his head:
Consolation of Israel. Isa. xlix. 13. xl. 1, 2. Luke ii. 25, 26.
1 COME, thou long expected Jesus,
Born to set thy people free;
2 Born thy people to deliver;
Born to reign in us for ever,
Rule in all our hearts alone;
Seeker and Saviour of the Lost.
Luke xix. 10. Ezek. xxxiv.
11, 12, 15, 16.
1 JESUS, 'tis thine to seek,
2 No height, nor depth of sin,
3 Deep as our depths of guilt,
4 Come, grateful sinners come,
For ever bless his gracious name;
Desire of all Nations. Hag. ii. 7. Job xiv. 15. Isa. xxvi. §.
1 INFINITE excellence is thine,
Thou lovely Prince of grace; Thine uncreated beauties shine With never-fading rays.
2 Sinners, from earth's remotest end,
To Thee their prayers and vows ascend,
3 Thy name, as precious ointment shed,
4 Millions of happy spirits live
From Thee they all their bliss receive,
5 Thou art their triumph, and their joy; They find their all in Thee :
Thy glories will their tongues employ
Our lives blessed by Divine Goodness.
1 AGAIN the cheerful beams of day,
2 Our life is ever on the wing,
The moment when our lives begin,
3 Yet mighty God, our fleeting days,
And with the bounties of thy grace
4 Thy goodness runs an endless round; All glory to the Lord:
Thy mercy never knows a bound,
5 Thus we begin the lasting song;
The Christian Sabbath.
1 AGAIN our weekly labours end,
2 This day may our devotions rise,
3 This holy calm within the breast,
Which for the sons of God remains ;
4 With joy, great God, thy works we view,
5 In holy duties, let the day,
How sweet this sabbath thus to spend,
Fairer than the sons of men. Psa. xlv. 2; lxxxix. 6. 1 Chron. xvi. 24, 25, 26.
1 ETERNAL Excellence!
Thy worms would fain declare,
How Thou art heavenly fair:
2 Jesus, thy beauties shine Bright, infinitely bright; Both human and divine,
In thee, O Lamb, unite! Whate'er in heaven or earth we see As beautiful, are types of thee.
3 The sun, the moon, the stars, With all the thrones above, Thine excellence declare,
Thy beauty, power, and love: All worlds before thy throne we see, A sea of glass reflecting Thee.
4 Man in his first estate,
Most wonderfully form'd:
From every spot and blemish free,
5 As blood of goats and lambs,
So Adam's purity appears;
