2 Ye debtors, whom he gives to-know,
That you ten thousand talents owe,
Of sin and bell's tyrannic reign,
urge the great Redeemer's name. 4 The rich inheritance of heaven,
Your joy, your boast, is freely giv'n;
With golden streets and pearly gates. 5 Her blest inhabitants no more
Bondage and poverty deplore ;
The joy still rises with the debt.
Celestial light their steps surround,

Door. John X. 7,9, 16.
wide a door of hope.
The building strong and fair ; Within are pastures fresh and green,
And living streams are there.
For Jesus is the door :
Nor fear the lion's roar.
And Jews and Gentiles come,
All trav'ling through one beauteous gate
To one eternal home!
HYMN 80. L. M. Glory and Grace in Immanuel. 1 Cor.i.31. 2Cor.x.17. Isa.xlv.25.
TOW to the Lord a poble song !
Awake, my soul ! awake, my tongue ! Hosanna to th' eternal Name,
And all his boundless love proclaim. 2 See where it shines in Jesus' face,
The brightest image of his grace :
Has all his mightiest works outdone.
Proclaim the wise, the pow'rful God.
Sparkle in every rolling star : 4 But in his looks a glory stands,
The noblest labour of thine hands :
Outshines the wonders of the skies.
My thoughts rejoice at Jesus' name!
Ye heaveos, reflect it to the ground ! 6 Oh,
I live to reach the place Where he unveils his lovely face ; Where all his beauties
behold, And sing his name to harps of gold ! WATTS.
HYMN 81. C. M. Kingdom of Christ. Rom. xi. 15. Psa. lxxxix. 29. Zech. ix. 10. LO!
O! what a glorious sight appears
To our believing eyes ! The
arth and seas are pass'd away, And the old rolling skies.
2 From the third heaven, where God resides,
That holy, happy place,
Adorn'd with shining grace. 3 Attending angels shout for joy,
And the bright armies sing, “ Mortals, behold the sacred seat
Of your descending King.
Removes his blest abode ;
And he, the loving God.
From every weeping eye,
And death itself shall die.'
Shall this bright hour delay ?
And bring the welcome day.
HYMN 82. C. M.
Of our High Priest above;
His bowels melt with love.
He knows our feeble frame,
For he has felt the same.
The great Redeemer stood, While Satan's fiery darts he bore,
And did resist to blood. 4 He, in the days of feeble flesh,
Pour'd out his cries and tears,
And in his measure feels afresh
What ev'ry member bears.
But raise it to a flame;
Nor scoros the meanest name.
His mercy and his pow'r,
In the distressing hour.
HYMN 33. P. M.
Shepherd. John x. 11. Isa. xl. 11.
And feed me with a shepherd's care;
presence shall my wants supply, And guard me with a watchful eye; My noon day walks he shall attend,
And all my midnight hours delend. 2 When in the sultry glebe I faint,
Or on the thirsty mountains pant,
Amid the verdant landscape flow.
With gloomy horrors overspread,
And guide me through the dreadful shade. 4 Though in a bare and rugged way,
Through devious lonely wilds I stray,
HYMN 84. S. M.
AM, saith Christ, the way:
How fair soe'er they seem.
Then all that lack this test,
Is but a lie at best,
Let this be seen by faith;
That all beside is death.
The Holy Ghost apply ;
Nor be deceiv'd nor die. WESLEY's Coll.
HYMN 85. C. M. The Glories of Redemption. Isa. i. 1--3. Heb. ix. 26. 1 Pet. ii, 24.
ATHER, how wide thy glory shines !
How high thy wonders rise !
By thousands through the skies.
Their motions speak thy skill;
We read thy patience still.
On all thy creatures writ,
The impress of thy feet.
To save rebellious worms,
In their most glorious forms ;
