And, to effect this glorious change,
Did Jesus shed his blood ? ? O for a song of ardent praise,
To bear our souls above:
Or damp our flaming love?
To praise our heavenly King : O may that love which spread this board,
Inspire us while we sing : 4 “Glory to God in highest strains, And to the earth be
peace; Good-will from heaven to men is come,
And let it never cease."
3 Be wise as serpents, where you go,
But harmless as the peaceful dove; And let your heaven-taught conduct show
That ye're commission'd from aboro 4 Freely from me ye have received,
Freely, in love, to others give;
And, by your labours, sinners live.
HYUN 96. L. M. TJesus, our exalted Lorul
, That Name in heaven and earth aclored, Fain would our hearts and voices raise
A cheerful song of sacred praise.
Are weak, and languishing, and low;
The theme demands immortal tongries. 3 Yet whilst around his board we meet.
And worship at his sacred feet,
In glad returns of grateful love.
But long to know and love thee more;
Desire to feed on joys divine
To see thy wondrous love display'l;
Thy dreadful agonizing pains. 6. Let humble, penitential woe,
With painful, pleasing ang islı flow;

And ye shall prove my Gospel true,
And all the wonders ye shall do.
Go cast out clevils in my Name;
I'm with you till the world shall end: All power is trusted in my hands,
I can destroy, and can defend." 5 Ile spake, and light shone round his head;
On a bright cloud to heaven he rode: They to the farthest nation spread
The grace of their ascended God.
IIYMN 99. L. M. TH THE Saviour, when to heaven he rose,
In splendid triumph o'er his foes, Scatter'd his gifts on men below,
And wide lis royal bounties flow. 2 Hence sprang the Apostle's honour'd name,
Sacred beyond heroic fame;
And hence the Evangelic page.
Pastors from lience and Teachers rise; Who, though with feebler rays they shine,
Still mark a long-extended line:
And, fed by him, their graces live;
Amidst the rage of hell they stand, 5 So shall the bright Succession run
Through all the courses of the sun;
Whilst unborn churches, by their care,
MISSIONS. Shall rise and flourish, large and fair.
HY WIN 102. L. M. 6 Jesus, our Lord, their hearts shall know, The spring whence all these blessings flow; JE
ESUS shall reign where'er the sun
Does his successive journeys run; Pastors and people shout his praise,
His kingdom spread from shore to shore Through the long round of endless days.
Till moons shall wax and wane no more. HYMN 100. L. M.
2 To lim shall endless prayer be made,
And praises throng to crown his head, FATHER of mercies, bow thine ear, His Name like sweet perfume shall rise Attentive to our earnest prayer;
With every morning sacrifice.
3 People and realms, of every tongue,
Dwell on his love with sweetest song, ? How great their work, how vast their
And infant voices shall proclaim
Their early blessings on his Name.
4 Blessings abound where'er lie reigns ; We share the blessings they obtain.
The prisoner leaps to burst liis chains,
The weary find eternal rest, 3 Clothe, then, with energy divine,
And all the sons of want are blest,
5 Where he displays his healing power, Suppress their fear, inflame their zcal.
Death and the curse are known no more :
In him the tribes of Adam boast
More blessings than their father lost
Peculiar honours to our King:
Angels descend with songs again,
And earth repeat the loud Amen.

HYMN 112. C. M.
HIEN Jesus left his heavenly tlırone, To God, the God of love,
He chose an humble birth;
Like us unhonour'd and unknown,
He came to dwell on earth:
2 Like liim, may we be found below. His love demands
In wisdom's patlıs of peace ;
Like him, in grace and knowledge grow ? Now we are taught to read
As years and strength increase.
3 Sweet were his words and kind his look, And brightest glories shine:
When mothers round him press'd;
Their infants in his arms he took,
And on his bosom bless'd:
Beneath his watchful eye, 3 Within these hallow'd walls,
O, thus encircled in l.is arms,
May we for ever lie.
HYMN 113. L. M.
LORD, how delightful 'tis to see
A whole assembly worship thee: Here in his church his praises sing.
At once they sing, at once they pray; Children.
They hear of heaven, and learn the way For blessings such as these,
2 I have been there, and still waid g(), Our gratitude receive;
'Tis like a little heaven below; Lord, here accept'our hearts,
Not all that earth and sin can say, 'Tis all that we can give:
Shall tempt me to forget tliis day:
3 U write apon my memory, Lord,
The text and doctrine of thy word;
But love thee better than before. 4 With thoughts of Christ and things divine,
Fill up this sinful heart of mine;
In the fair fertile fields above
To ample harvests grow. 3 The mite my willing hands can give.
At Jesus' feet I lay ;
Abounding grace repay.

Feels all another's pain ;
Is never raised in vain : 2 Whose breast responds with generous

Ilis feet are never slow; He views, through mercy's melting eye,
A brother in a foe 4 To lim protection shall be shown ;
And mercy, from above, Descend on those who thus fulfil
The Christian law of love.
HYMN 117. III. 3. LORD of life, all praise excelling,

Both are equal in thy sight.
Warm’d thy faithful prophet's tongue, Who, the lot of all deciding,
To thy chosen Israel sung: 4 When thy harvest yields thee pleasure,
Thou the golden sheaf shalt bind;
Of the scatter'd ears behind :
The widow and the fatherless. 5 When thine olive-plants increasing
Pour their plenty o'er thy plain,
Chorus. These, &c. o When thy favour'd vintage flowing,
Gladdens thine autumnal scene,
Chorus. These, &c. 7 Still we read thy word declaring
Mercy, Lord, thine own decree;
Warms the heart resembling thee,
Still the widow owns thy care;
