HYMN 244. P. M.
from various Scriptures.
Thou Zion, belor'd of the Lord,
Nor the love of thy God realiz’d.
On thy head wear a crown of pure gold :
Hears the ransoming language of truth. 3 Deliver'd to bondage for pought,
Where tyrants, thy steps, have pursu'd ;
HYMN 245. C. M.
Confidence in God.
Why thus cast down with fear?
Is no deliv'rer near ? 2 Hope thou in God, and in him trust,
And send thy fears away; He is both merciful and just;
Nor can bis love decay.
3 My soul, thy highest notes of praise
To thy deliv’rer sing;
The honours of thy King.
Is God, thy gracious friend;
All nations, made of the same blood, Are children of his matchless grace,
Thro' Adam's vast and countless race. 2 The Greek and Jew are one by faith;
Christ is the head, th' apostle saith :
And heirs of his eternal word.
He is our Saviour and our Lord :
To gods which mortal hands have made.
behold a heav'nly light; The Lord will on bis Zion rise, And raise his offspring to the skies. H. BAI u.
HYMN 247. C. M.
There is no Peace to the Wicked.
Ío sin's deceitful way;
Nor light a single ray.
And I am drown'd with grief ; My soul abhors that monster, sin,
Dear Saviour ! grant relief.
3 0, why should men in sin remain ?
Why walk the tiresome way? Lord, may each sinner grace obtain,
And go no more astray. 4 Hast thou not promis'd in thy word,
That sin shall fioish'd be? Full thy testimonies, Lord,
Aod set the sioner free.
HYMN 248. C. M.
A vast and shining band;
In glorious order stand !
From tribulations great,
They've reach'd the heav'nly state.
From ev'ry spot of sin ;
And of his mercies sing.
From burning heats refresh'd ;
And give them endless rest.
Jesus shall lead his flock;
From Christ, th' eternal Rock,
And they bis wonders tell ; Wbile in his temple they shall stay,
And God with them shall dwell. H. BALLOU.
HYMN 249. L. M.
Universal Worship. Rev. v. 13. BA
EHOLD! the visions brighter grow,
Beyond what beasts, or elders know ; They wond'ring stand with sweet delight,
Wbile glories beam upon their sight! 2 Jesus the pow'r of grace displays,
The four-and-twenty stand and gaze,
Now to the gospel grace resign.
Tbe mighty hosts assembled be ;
The glories of their heav'nly King. 4 Now beasts and elders both unite
To make his praises their delight;
HYMN 250. S. M.
The Day of Rest.
We shout the day divine;
Shall soon with lustre shine. 2 Dark clouds shall pass away,
And light shall fast increase, Till us the pow'r of perfect day
From darkness shall release. 3 This is the day of rest,
Prefigur'd by the law;
This day the prophets saw. 4
This day shall finish sin,
(Ye saints, your voices raise) Sball gather all the outcasts in,
To sing eternal praise.
HYMN 251. L. M.
Let grateful songs of praise arise
Now be bis grace in concert sung. 2 Far as the rolling planets move
He spreads his mercy and his love ;
His wond'rous works of goodness shine. 3 So let bis goodness be express'd,
From north to south, from east to west,
The vict'ries of his grace ! 2 Far as the circuit of the sun
He makes his mercy known ;
He sends his blessings down.
By all, thro' ev'ry clime;
Now let our voices raise ;
Do well demand our praise. 2 He gives us wholesome food
And richest draughts of wine ;
JOIN every heart and ev'ry tongue,
song to God
