2 Lord of every land and nation,

Ancient of eternal days;
Sounded through Thy wide dominion
Be Thy just and lawful praise.

Hallelujah, &c.
3 For Thy providence, that governs,

Through Thine empire's wide domain, Wings an angel, guides a sparrow, Blessed be Thy gentle reign!

Hallelujah, &c. 4 Brightness of the Father's glory,

Shall Thy praise unuttered lie? Flee, my tongue, such guilty silence! Sing—the Lord who came to die!

Hallelujah, &c.
5 From the highest throne in glory,

To the cross of deepest woe,
All to ransom guilty captives :
Flow, my praise, for ever flow!

Hallelujah, &c.
6 Go, return, immortal Saviour,

Leave Thy footstool, take Thy throne;
Thence return, and reign for ever,
Be the kingdom all Ihine own!

Hallelujah,

Hallelujah, Amen! 28. Children's Praises.

L.M. 1 THERE

was a time when children sang, The Saviour's praise with sacred glee,

And all the hills of Judah rang

With their exulting jubilee.
2 Oh! to have join'd their rapturous song,

And swell’d their sweet hosannas high,
And bless'd Him with our feeble tongues,

As He—the Man of Grief-went by! 3 But Christ is now a glorious King,

And angels in His presence bow :
The humble songs that we can sing,

Oh, will He, can He, hear them now? 4 He can, He will, He loves to hear

The notes which babes and sucklings raise;
Jesus, we come with trembling fear;

Oh! teach our hearts and tongues Thy praise. 5 We join the hosts around Thy throne,

Who once, like us, the desert trod;
And thus we make their song our own-

“ Hosanna to the Son of God!"
29.
Christ the Lord of all.

C.M. 1 ALL hail the power of Jesus

' name!
Let angels prostrate fall :
Bring forth the royal diadem,

And crown Him, Lord of all.
2 Ye saints redeemed of Adam's race,

Ye ransomed from the fall ;
Hail Him, who saves you by his grace!

And crown Him, Lord of all.

Praise Him for His noble deeds,
Praise Him for His matchless power;
Him, from whom all good proceeds,

Let heaven and earth adore. 2 Publish, spread to all around,

The great Immanuel's name;
Let the trumpet's thrilling sound,

Him Lord of Hosts proclaim :
Praise Him, every tuneful string,
All the reach of heavenly art;
All the powers of music bring, -

The music of the heart.
3 Him, in whom they move and live,

Let every creature sing ;
Glory to their Maker give,

And homage to their King :
Hallowed be His name beneath,
As in heaven, on earth adored;
Praise the Lord in every breath,

Let all things praise the Lord.
17.
Christ's Invitation.

L.M.
SWEET was the gospel's joyful sound,

Rich were the tones of love and grace,
That fell on those who gathered round

To listen to the “Prince of Peace.” 2 From heaven He came, of heaven He spoke,

To heaven He led His followers' way;
Dark clouds of gloomy night He broke
Unveiling an immortal day.

3 “Come, wand'rers, to my Father's home,

Come, all ye weary ones, and rest!'
Yes! gracious Teacher, we will come,

Obey Thee, love Thee, and be blest.
18.
The Prince of Peace.

7.6. 1 RECEIVE Messiah gladly,

And lift the downcast.eyes:
Ye people, speak not sadly :

He makes the fallen rise.
In all your habitations,

Complaint and crying, cease ;
The long Desire of Nations

Brings everlasting peace.
2 He comes, with succour speedy,

To those who suffer wrong,
To help the poor and needy,

And bid the weak be strong :
To give them songs for sighing,

Their darkness turn to light,
Whose souls, in bondage lying,

Were precious in His sight.
3 By such shall He be feared,

'While sun and moon endure,
Beloved, obeyed, revered ;

For He shall judge the poor,
Through changing generations,

With justice, merey, truth,
While stars maintain their stations,

Or moons renew their youth.

Hosannas.
1
CHILDREN once were heard to sing,

When so many silent were;
Glad they welcom’d Israel's King,

Loud hosannas fill'd the air. 2 Count us not, O Lord, too bold,

If we try our song to raise ;
Children we, like those of old,

Taught like them to lisp Thy praise. 3 Make us wise Thy name to know,

Let us feel Thy power and love;
Having served Thee here below,

Rise to dwell with Thee above. 4 There to sing hosannas loud,

There a Saviour's praise to sing,
Mix with yonder joyful crowd,

And for ever praise our King.

20.

The Love of Jesus.

8.7.7.

ONE

there is above all others,
Well deserves the name of friend;
His is love beyond a brother's,

Costly, free, and knows no end.
They who once His kindness prove,
Find it everlasting love.
