HYMN 2. C. M.
What endless glory shines !
For these celestial lines. 2 Here
the wretched sons of want
And lasting as the mind.
And yields a free repast ;
Invite the longing taste.
Spreads heav'nly peace around;
Attend the blissful sound.
My ever dear delight;
And still increasing light.
Be thou for ever near ;
Aod view my Saviour there. Mrs. STEELE.

With all her diff'rent tongues ;
In melody and songs.

And make him lord of all below;
And lay the fishes at his feet.
To crown the second Adam's state !
4 See bim below his angels made :
See him io dust among the dead,
But He shall reign, with pow'r divine. 5 The world to come, redeem'd from all
The miseries that attend the fall,

Adorn' with majesty aod grace ! He comes witb blessings from above,
And wins the nations to his love, 2 At his right hand, our eyes

Born to set thy people free;

Raise us to thy glorious throne.

Through ev'ry land, by ev'ry tongue. 2 Eternal are thy mercies, Lord ;

Fountain opened. Zec. xiii. 1. Psa. xxxvi. 9. Isa. xli. 18. THERE is a fountain filld with blood,
Drawn from Immanuel's veins ; And sinners plung'd beneath that flood,
Lose all their guilty stains.
That fountain in his day ;
Wash all my sins away!
Shall never lose its pow'r,
Be sav'd, io sin no more.
Thy flowing wounds supply,
And shall be till I die.
Lies silent in the grave,
