HYMN 84 S. M.
PREPARE thankril song

To the Redeemer's name!
Ilis praises should employ each tongue,

And every heart inflame!
He laid his glory by,

And dreadful pains endured,
That rebels such as you and I,

From wrath mighi be secured.
3 Upon the cross he died,

Our debt of sin to pay:
The blood and water froin his side

Wash guilt and tilth away.
4 And now he pieading stands

For us before the throne,
And answers all the law's demands.

With what himself hath done.
5 The Holy Ghost he sends,

Our stubborn souls to move ;
To make his enemies his friends,

And conquer them by love.

6 The world and Satan rage,

But he their power controls;
His wisdom, love, and truth, engage

Protection for our souls.
7 Though press’d, we will not yield,

But shall prevail at length;
For Jesus is our sun and shield,

Our righteousness and strength.
8 Assured that Christ our king

• Will put our foes to flight,
We on the field of battle sing,
And triumph while we tight.

HYMN 85. P. M.
HThe souhat's hir'd with joy and peaco,
That bears the fruits of righteousness,

And kept by Jesus' power;
Their trespasses are all forgiven,
They antedate the joys of heaven:

In rapturous lays
Shout the praise
Of Jesus' grace

To a lost race
Of sinners, brought to happiness

Through th' atoning blood of Jesus.
2 Satan may tempt, and hell may rage,

And all the powers of earth besiege ;
Their united strength at once engage

To pluck a soul from Jesus :
The faithful soul laughs them to scorn,
He's heaven bound, he's heaven born,

He'll watch and pray,
Night and day,
Fight his way,

Win the day,
And all his enemies dismay,
Through the mighty name of Jesus.
3 Oh monster death, thy sting is drawn!

O boasting grave! no trophy's won !
The saint triumphs through grace alone,
To praise the name of Jesus.


[ocr errors]

At length he bids the world adieu,
With all its vanity and show-

The soul it flies
Through the skies,
To paradise,

And joins its voice,
In rapturous lays of love, to praise

The glorious name of Jesus.
4 When Gabriel's awful trump shall sound,

And rend the rocks, convulse the ground,
And swear that time is at an end,

Ye dead, arise to judgment.
See lightnings flash, and thunders roll,
The earth wrapt like a parchment scroll;

Comets blaze
Sinners raise
Dread amaze

And horrors seize,
The guilty sons of Adam's race,

Unsaved from sin by Jesus.
5 The Christian, fill'd with rapturous joy,

Midst flaming world he piounts on high,
To meet his Saviour in the sky,

And see the face of Jesus.
Then soul and body reunite,
And fill'd with glory infinite:

Blessed day!
Christians, say-
Will you pray

That we may
All join that happy company,
To praise the name of Jesus ?

HYMN 86. P. M.

Let all prepare to take him in;

And all the world with prajeos ring,

And give to Jesus glory.
