HYMN 237. C. M. A King shall reign in Righteousness. Isa. xxxii, 1, 2, 3. JESUS, our King, bis sceptre sways, Princes, in judgment, 'tend his ways,
And glories in him shine.
A covert from the storm ;
Secure from ev'ry harm.
Rivers of water flow;
Makes fainting mortals know. 4 As a tall shadow of a rock,
Within a weary land,
He guards them with his band. 5 Clearness of light he will bestow,
Our dimness take away ;
In an eternal day.
Salvation in the Lord ;
The Coming of Christ ; or, the true Light.
'Tis Jacob's star, and Jesse's root !
Nor bears a tree such beav'nly fruit.
And gloomy darkoess flies apace;
3 Sin, now condemo'd, shall cease to be,
The righteous Judge shall bear the sway;
And take iniquity away.
Display thy matchless grace abroad;
COME, sing a Saviour's
of his grace,
The Kingdom of Christ and its attendant Glories.
And chant his growing fame.
And righteousness and peace maintain. 2 The
To strength divine, shall yield.
What an almighty arm can do. 3
His alienated sons,
And willing subjects made.
As dew drops of the vernal morn. 4 His realm shall ever stand,
By lib'ral things upheld ;
All hearts with joy be fill’d.
HYMN 240. S. M.
Collected from sundry Texts.
To sioners, does proclaim,
Redeemer's name !"
And all their power employ'd ; There is his truth and light maintain’d,
And heav'nly truth enjoy'd. 3 The needy starving poor
Are fill'd with living bread ; The op’ning of the prison door
Proclaims the captive freed. 4 The thirsty, panting soul,
That longs for springs of grace, Bebolds celestial waters roll,
And floods of righteousness. 5 My God, my
HYMN 241. L. M.
The Lord is my Shepberd. Psa. xxviii.
And shades them with the tow'ring rock;
And fills our souls with lasting food. 2 Where pastures grow in living green,
And spread a rich and flowing scene ;
Inhaling all the sweet perfumes. 3 Where waters of salvation Now,
To cheer the humble vale below,
There doth our Shepherd kindly guide,
And brings us leaning on bis breast.
The path of sin's dark wilderness;
And, in bis bosom, shields from harm.
O make thy wounded servant whole !
HYMN 242. S. M.
Blessings of the Gospel.
And bright prophetic streams ;
And light effulgent beams.
The nations of their woe;
And up to Zion go.
Waters were seen to flow;
Give health where'er they go.
And ever-living groves !
And truth spontaneous grows.
HYMN 243. C. M.
The heavenly Jerusalem.
And ev'ry grace impart;
And animate my heart. 2 Of the eternal fair I sing,
Jerusalem above ;
Where dwells immortal love.
(Sulvation of the Lord) Her gates the word of prophecy, And open
is the word. 4 From north and south, from east and west,
Shall all the nations come ; And find in her immortal rest,
And an eternal home. 5 On emblematic stones she stands,
Where ev'ry grace is found ; Rais'd by the great Jehovah's hands,
And on Immanuel's ground.
Reflects her cheering rays;
But one eternal blaze.
(And faithful is his word) Her seed shall broise the serpent's head
This seed is Christ the Lord. 8 Thus is the male and female one,
“The Lord our righteousness ;" The Covenant and Living Son, lo whom the world is blest.
