The praise of every holy thought
And righteous word is thine.
The pow'r on thee to call,
HYMN 22. (III. 1.) 1 SING, my soul, his wondrous love,
Who, from yon bright throne above,
All is by his sceptre sway'd;
So much love to us below!
Bought us with the Saviour's blood;
Guides us by his Spirit pure.
Let his glory be thy theme:
HYMN 23. (s. M.) 1 GRACE! 'tis a charming sound! Harmonious to the
ear; Heaven with the echo shall resound,
And all the earth shall hear. 2 Grace first contriv'd a way
To save rebellious man,
Which drew the wondrous plan. 3 Grace guides my wand'ring feet
To tread the heavenly road,
While pressing on to God.
Through everlasting days;
And well deserves the praise.
V, THE CHURCH.
HYMN 24. (s. M.) 1 LIKE Noah's weary dove,
That soar'd the earth around,
The cheerless waters found; 20 cease, my wand'ring soul,
On restless wing to roam;
Has not for thee a home. 3 Behold the Ark of God,
Behold the open door;
And rove, my soul, no more. 4 There, safe thou shalt abide,
There, sweet shall be thy rest,
With full salvation blest. 5 And, when the waves of ire
Again the earth shall fill,
HYMN 25. (s. M.) 1 I
LOVE thy kingdom, Lord,
The house of thine abode, The Church, our blest Redeemer sav'd
With his own precious blood. 2 I love thy Church, O God!
Her walls before thee stand, Dear as the apple of thine eye,
And graven on thy hand. 3 If e'er to bless thy sons,
My voice or hands deny,
This voice in silence die. 4 If e'er my heart forget
Her welfare, or her wo,
And every grief o'erflow. 5 for her my tears shall fall;
For her my prayers ascend;
To her my cares and toils be given,
Till toils and cares shall end. 6 Beyond my highest joy
I prize her heavenly ways,
Her hymns of love and praise. 7 Jesus, thou Friend divine,
Our Saviour and our King,
Shall great deliv’rance bring. 8 Sure as thy truth shall last,
To Zion shall be given
HYMN 26. (c. M.)
Hebrews xii. 18, 22-24. 1 NOT
TOT to the terrors of the Lord,
The tempest, fire, and smoke; Not to the thunder of that word
Which God on Sinai spoke:
The city of our God;
And spread his love abroad. 3 Behold th' innumerable host
of angels cloth'd in light! Behold the spirits of the just
Whose faith is chang'd to sight. 4 Behold the bless'd assembly there
Whose names are writ in heav'n; Hear God, the Judge of all, declare
Their sins, through Christ, forgiv'n! 5 Angels, and living saints and dead,
But one communion make;
HYMN 27. (s. M.) 1 BLEST is the tie that binds
Our hearts in Christian love: The fellowship of kindred minds
Is like to that above,
2 Before our Father's throne
Our comforts and our cares. 3 We share our mutual woes,
Our mutual burdens bear;
The sympathizing tear.
How keen, how deep the pain!
And hope to meet again. 5 From sorrow, toil, and pain,
And sin we shall be free;
(II. 1.) Psalm cxxii.
The Church in Glory.
That calls my willing soul away,
And points me to his rest.
Their glory I survey:
And shine with cloudless day.
Borne on immortal wing; There, crown'd with everlasting joy, In ceaseless hymns their tongues employ
Before th' Almighty King.
For his eternal Son:
Attend and share his throne.
5 Mother of cities! o'er thy head
For evermore shall dwell:
HYMN 29. (L. M.)
Isaiah lii. 1, 2. 1 TRIUMPHANT Zion! lift thy head
From dust, and darkness, and the dead! Though humbled long, awake at length,
And gird thee with thy Saviour's strength! 2 Put all thy beauteous garments on,
And let thy excellence be known:.
The world thy glories shall confess. 3 No more shall foes unclean invade,
And fill thy hallow'd walls with dread;
Their vict'ry and thy sorrows boast.
His hand thy ruins shall repair:
VI. FESTIVALS AND FASTS.
THE LORD'S DAY.
HYMN 30. (II. 4.) 1 AWAKE, ye saints, awake,
And hail this sacred day;
Your joyful homage pay:
The Lord of life arose;
And vanquish'd all our foes:
the fruits of all his love. 9 All hail, triumphant Lord!
Heaven with hosannas rings,
