A remedy for every wound,
Or moral pain that can be found.
3 This is the Saviour long foretold,
Hear him, ye deaf! ye blind, behold!
He's come to make his grace abound,
As far as sin, or death is found.

4 No sigh, nor groan, the world shall hear,
He wipes away the falling tear;
He breaketh darkness' pow'rful chain,
And peace eternally shall reign.

5 No more on earth shall discord rise,
Nor warriors meet with hateful eyes!
Their pointed weapons shall no more
Be reaking with the crimson gore!
6 Long as the sun shall gild the morn,
Or moon shall fill her silver horn,
Or life, or being, shall remain,
So long Messiah's LOVE shall reign.

KNEELAND.

HYMN 102. L. M.

The Brightness of God's Glory.
7HAT dazzling light is that which shines,
Beaming refulgent from the east
Celestial splendour through all climes,
And makes each child of sorrow blest?
2 It is the Sun of Righteousness,
The brightness of the great I AM!
In him Jehovah manifests

His mercy, love, and grace to man.
3 He made, from darkness, light to shine ;
So in each heart of Adam's race
He beams the light of life divine,
And comforts all its deep distress.
4 Immortal Radiance of Life!

In brighter flames of brilliance move,
Till all are turn'd from sin and strife
To sing the deathless
song of love.

HYMN 103. L. M.

Unto me every knee shall bow, &c. Isa. xiv. 23, 25. Rom. xiv. 11. Philip. ii. 10, 11.

TH

H' unchangeable Jehovah saith,
I, by myself, have truly sworn ;
The word's gone forth in righteousness,
Nor shall the sacred word return :
2 That every knee, above, below,
Shall humbly bow before
my throne:
And every soul my truth shall know-
In me they've life and strength alone :
3 That every tongue shall loudly sing
To Jesus Christ, the living Lord;
And make the highest arches ring
In praises of the faithful Word.
4 Thus shall my name be glorify'd,

By all in earth and heav'n above;
In me shall every soul confide,
And taste the streams of heav'nly love.

The Blessings of the Gospel. Mat. xi. 5.

WHAT glorious tidings do I hear

From my Redeemer's tongue!

I can no longer silence bear;
I'll burst into a song!

2 The blind receive their sight again,
The lame can walk abroad;
The foulest leper's washed clean,
The deaf can hear the word.

3 The dead are rais'd to life anew,
By renovating grace;

The glorious gospel 's preach'd to you,
The poor of Adam's race.

KNEELAND.

4 O, wond'rous type of things divine,
When Christ displays his love,
To raise from wo the sinking mind,
To reign in realms above!

5 Employ, my soul, thy noblest pow'rs,
In praising Christ the Lamb;
There ne'er was grace like this before-
Hosannah to his name!

HYMN 105. C. M.

The Gospel Mission. Mark xvi. 15, 16.

Go,

10, saith a risen Saviour, go,
My gospel preach to all;
Let the most distant nations know,
And hear, my gracious call.
2 Proclaim aloud my gospel free,
And every creature teach;
That they may my salvation see,
My gospel faithful preach.

3 The blest effects then you shall see In them who do believe;

Their souls, from sin and death set free,
By faith in me, shall live.

4 For want of faith in them that hear,
The word is not receiv'd;

From sin, and death, and every fear,
Their souls are not reliev'd.

A heavenly form salutes their eyes,
Array'd in shining gold!

HYMN 106. C. M.

The Message of the Angels to the Shepherds.
HAT sudden glories did surprise

1

2 'Twas night, and gloomy darkness hung Over the lands afar ;

Shepherds in pensive numbers sung,
Or watch'd the twinkling star.

3 Deep musing on the prophecies Of glories then to come;

G

H. BALLOU.

With glimm'ring hopes and longing eyes,
They of Messiah sung.

4 But lo! the long-expected day
Salutes their wishful eyes;
While heav'nly grace makes a display,
Which strikes them with surprize.
Trembling they stand, as in amaze,

To see the vision bright;
They steadfast on the angel gaze,
While wrapt in silent night.
6 August the words, which silence break,
And charming to their ears;

While all their tremblings them forsake,
And they forget their fears.

7 Behold! the tidings which we bring
To you of heav'nly grace,
Is of your long-expected King,
The Saviour of your race!
8 To-day is born, in Bethlehem,
The long-expected Light,
To rule the New Jerusalem,
And turn to day the night.

HYMN 107. C. M.

What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common. Acts x.15.

WH

HEN God would on the Gentiles rise,
In light of truth divine,

He blest his holy servant's eyes
With visions most sublime.

2 The law and prophets open'd were, While he the vision saw;

The covenant of grace was there,
Descending from the law.

H. BALLOU.

3 Like to a vessel, that contain'd
The Gentile and the Jew ;
All that the promises had nam'd,
Presented were to view.

4 What God hath cleans'd is not unclean,
The vision truly saith;

Knowledge of what these words do mean
Enlarg'd th' apostle's faith.

HYMN 108. C. M.

By grace are ye saved, &c.

BY grace the great Salvation comes,

Through faith of Christ, our Lord; Not by the works which we have done, But by th' eternal Word.

2 The power of God, in Christ reveal'd, Created us anew;

And, by his Holy Spirit, seal'd

His children, just and true.

Eph. ii. 3.

H. BALLOW.

2 As God ordain'd that we should live
In peace and heav'nly love,
He doth his Holy Spirit give,
And comforts from above.
3 Then let us always watchful be,
T'improve the heav'nly grace,
And live from works of darkness free,
And run the heav'nly race.

H. BALLOW.

HYMN 109. P. M.

To

Several scriptures on the Kingdom of Christ.
O Christ the Son, the Father spake,
Lo! ask of me, and I will make
The heathen to thy sceptre bend;
The utmost parts of all the earth
Are thine inheritance by birth,

And wide thine empire shall extend.
2 Now Jesus waves his sceptre high,
Unfurls his banners in the sky,

While loud the gospel trumpets sound;
