HYMN 17. P. M.
Jesus glorified. Acte i, 10, 11. Heb. i. 5. HA
AIL the day that sees him rise,
Ravish'd from our wishful eyes !
Take the King of glory in !
Ştill he loves the earth he leaves ;
Harbinger of human race, 3 Master, (may we ever say)
Taken from our head to-day,
Following thee beyond the skies. 4 Ever upward let us move,
Wafted on the wings of love ;
HYMN 18. P. M. Lift up your heads, ye everlasting doors! Psa. xxiv, 7--10.
NGELS, roll the rock away,
Death, yield up thy mighty prey :
Glowing with immortal bloom. Hallelujah.
Fame's eternal trump of praise ;
Hear the joy-inspiring sound. Hallelujah. 3 Now, ye saints, lift up your eyes,
Now to glory see him rise,
Up to waiting worlds on high. Hallelujah. 4 Heaven displays her portals wide,
Glorious Jesus, through them ride;
Thy great Father's and thine owo. Hallelujah.
Praise, and sweep your golden lyres ;
Let the strains, be sweet and strong Hallelujah. 6 Ev'ry oote with wonder swell,
Sin o'erthrown, and captiv'd hell :
HYMN 19. L. M.
Heb. ii. 8.
The royal honours of thy throne :
2 Exalted Saviour, we confess
The sov'reign triumphs of thy grace;
And temper majesty divine.
Till all thine enemies obey :
And conquer millions by its love. 4 Mighty to vanquish, and forgive !
Thioe Israel shall repent and live ;
To Christ the Son : “ Ascend and sit
Thy foes submissive at thy feet.
Thy word, the sceptre in thy hand,
And bow their wills to thy command.
When saints shall flock with willing minds,
Where holiness in beauty shines.” 4 O blessed pow'r! O glorious day!
What a large vict'ry shall ensue!
HYMN 21. C. M.
His ark was settled there;
To worship brice a year.
2 But we have no such lengths to go,
Nor wander far abroad :
There is a house for God.
Here let thy praise be spread;
And fill tby poor with bread.
Let God's anointed shine;
With love and pow'r divine.
Asking the way to Zion. Jer. 1. 5.
That leads to Zion's bill;
With a determin'd will.
Your pious march to join ;
Or faith and love divine.
Aod seek bis favour there; Before his footstool humbly bow,
And pour out fervent prayer.
In everlasting bands ;
With eager hearts and hands. 5 Come, let us seal, without delay, The cov'pant of his
grace ; Nor shall the years of distant life
Its memory efface.
6 Tbus may our rising offspring bagte
To see their fathers' God;
Their youtbful feet bath trod.
How did my heart rejoice to hear
HYMN 23. C. M.
My friends devoutly say,
And keep the solemn day.
While life or breath remains :
There God my saviour reigns.
And joy a constant guest !
HYMN, 24. L. M. ·
Like a young cedar, fresh and green.
Yields such a comely sight as these.
Nature decays, but grace must thrive ;
Still makes them flourish strong and fair.
The Lord is holy, just, and true ;
