HYMN 2. C. M.
What endless glory shines !
For these celestial lines.
Exhaustless riches find ;
And lasting as the mind.
Aod yields a free repast; Sublimer sweets than nature knows,
Invite the looging taste. 4 Here the Redeemer's welcome voice
Spreads heavenly peace arouod ; And life and everlasting joys
Attend the blissful sound. 5 Ob may these heavenly pages be
My ever dear delight; And still new beauties
Be thou for ever near;
Saviour there. MRS. STEELE.
Praise for the Gospel. Ps. xcvi. 1. Luke iii. 6, 6.
New honours be address’d;
And makes the nations blest.
2 He spake the word 10 Abr'am first, His truth fulfils bis
grace ; The Gentiles make his name their trust,
And learn bis righteousness. 3 Let the whole earth his love proclaim,
With all her diff'rent tongues ; And spread the honours of his name,
In melody and songs.
HYMN 4. L. M.
First and Second Adam. Rom. v. 14. 1 Cor. xv. 21, 22.
OLD, what was man when made at first,
Adam, the offspring of the dust, That thou should'st set him and his race,
But just below an angel's place!
And make him lord of all below ;.
And lay the fishes at his feet.
To crown the second Adam's state!
Who condescended to be boro ! 4 See him below bis angels made:
See him in dust among the dead,
But He shall reign, with pow'r divine. 5 The world to come, redeem'd from all
The miseries that attend the fall,
Christ and the Church. Psa. xlviii. 10. xlvii. 9. C. 4,5.
Adorn'd with majesty and grace !
And wins the nations to his love. 2 At his right hand, our eyes
behold The queen array'd in purest gold; The world admires her beav'nly dress,
Her robe of joy and righteousness. 3 He forms her beauties like bis own,
He calls and seats her near his throne;
The idols of thy native state.
Io thee, the fav’rite of bis choice ;
For he's thy Maker and thy Lord. 5 O happy hour, wben thou shalt rise
To his fair palace in the skies !
Each like a prince in glory reign.
Let every age his praises spread ;

HYMN 9. C. M.
Fountain opened. Zec. xiii. 1. Psa. xxxvi. 9. Isa. xii. 18.
WHERE is a fountain fill'd with blood,
Drawn from Immanuel's veins ; And sinners plung'd beneath that flood,
Lose all their guilty stains. 2 The dyiog thief rejoic'd to see
That fountain jo bis day;
Wash all my sios away!
Shall never lose its power,
Be sav'd, to sin no more.
Thy flowing wounds supply,
And shall be till I die.
Lies silent in the grave,
