IIYMN 163. P. M, 1 THILE shepherds in Jewry were guarding
Promiscuously seated, estranged from sleep,
For Jesus your Saviour in Jewry appears. 2 "Though Adam the first in rebellion was found,
Forbidden to tarry on hallowed ground;
W their sheep,
Then shepherds be tranquil, this instant arise,
For Jesus your Saviour 's abundantly so."
“ Hosanna," the wondering shepherds replied :
Go visit the Son in his humble abode."
For full confirmation of what they had heard;
HYMN 164. P. M. 1 PROM the regions of love, lo! an angel de
scended, And told the strange news how the babe was
Go, shepherds, and visit this wonderful stranger,
Hallelujah to the Lamb,
Who has purchased our pardon,
When we pass over Jordan.
Glad tidings of joy now behold your salvation:
And shout the Redeemer while heaven rejoices.
Now glory to God is re-echo'd through heaven;
And sing of his love, his salvation and glory.
A love so divine sets my soul all on fire ;
And conquer with love, oh Jesus, all glorious!
HYMN 165. P. M.
ARK! the heralds of salvation !
Joyful news the angels bring :
Hail, all glory, hail, all glory,
Let the whole creation sing.
See the glory shining round,
By the shepherds, doth resound. 3 Fear not, shepherds, saith the angel
Banish sorrow from your eyes
For in Bethlehem's coarse manger,
See Jehovah! see Jehovah !
Veild in clay below the skies. 4 Haste away, ye eastern sages,
Seel the star proclaims your God ;
Rachel mourning, Rachel mourning,
he destroyed. 5 Sinners rage, each saint rejoices,
At the great Redeemer's birth, Angels join their cheerful voices, “Good will to men, and peace on earth."
Glory in the Saviour's birth. 6 Let all people have salvation,
Saith the heralds from above;
Go, ye heralds ! go, ye heralds!
Spread his name where'er ye rove. 7 Jesus, spread thy gospel glory,
Save poor dying souls from hell;
Haste, ye heralds! haste, ye heralds !
