4. O may his glories stand confess'd,
From north to south, from east to west
his gospel run,
When, fix'd on high, in purer skies,
HYMN 110. L. M. 1. THOU, Lord, by mortal eyes unseen,
And by thy offspring here unknown, To manifest thyself to men,
Hast set thine image in thy Son. 2. As the bright sun's meridian blaze
O’erwhelms and pains our feeble sight, But cheers us with his softer rays;
When shining with reflected light; 3. So in thy Son, thy pow'r divine,
Thy wisdom, justice, truth and love,
Reflected from thy throne above. 4. Though Jews, who granted not his claim,
Contemptuous turnd away their face; Yet those, who trusted in his name,
Beheld in him thy truth and grace. 5. O thou ! at whose almighty word
Fair light at first from darkness shone, Teach us to know our glorious Lord,
And trace the Father in the Son. 6. While we thine image, here display'd,
With love and admiration view;
HYMN 111. s. M.
Who stand on Zion's hill !
2. How charming is their voice!
How sweet the tidings are! “ Zion, behold thy Saviour King;
“He reigns and triumphs here.” 3. How happy are our ears,
That hear this joyful sound, Which kings and prophets waited for,
And sought, but never found ! 4. How blessed are our eyes,
That see this heav'nly light ! Prophets and kings desir'd it long,
But died without the sight. 5. The watchmen join their voice,
And tuneful notes employ : Jerusalem breaks forth in songs,
And deserts learn the joy. 6. The Lord makes bare his arm
Thro' all the earth abroad; Let ey'rý nation now behold Their Saviour and their God,
HYMN 112 s. M. 1. BEHOLD, the Prince of peace!
The chosen of the Lord, God's well-beloved Son, fulfils
The sure proplietie word. 2. No royal pomp adorns
This King of righteousness: Meekness and patience, truth and love,
Compose his princely dress. 3. Jesus, thou light of men!
Thy doctrine life imparts,
To warm and glad our hearts ! 4. Cheer'd by its beams, our souls
Shall run the heav’nly way.
HYMN 113 L. M.
Awake my soul, awakt my tongue,
Hosannah to th' eternal name,
And all his boundless love proclaim. 2. See where it shines
Jesus' face, The brightest image of his grace! God, in the person of his Son,
Has all his noblest works outdone. 3. The spacious earth and spreading flood
Proclaim the wise and pow'rful God;
Sparkle in ev'ry rolling star. 4. But in thy Son a glory shines,
Drawn out in far superior lines;
Outshines the beams of nature's face. 5. Grace ! 'tis a sweet, a charming theme;
My thoughts rejoice at Jesus' name.
Ye heav'ns, reflect it to the ground ! 6. O may I reach that happy place,
Where he unveils his lovely face !
HYMN 114. P. M,
Of wisdom, love, and pow'r,
To speak his worth ;
My Saviour forth.
What condescending ways,
And wonder see,
He bears for me.
3. Array'd in mortal flesh,
He like an angel stands,
His Father's throne,
To mortals known. 4. Great Prophet of my God!
My tongue would bless thy name.
Of sin forgivin,
And peace with heav'n,
HYMN 115, P. M. 1. WITH ecstacy of joy
Extol his glorious name,
Who spread the sky :
His honours high. 2. See the foundation laid
By pow'r and love divine;
In dust he lies,
A church might riso, 3. But he for ever lives,
Nor for himself alone;
Through ev'ry soul,
Unites the whole
4. To him with joy we move;
In him cemented stand ;
Still higher raise,
Its builder's praise.
HYMN 116. P. M.
Which God devis'd, ere time began :
With graee so free and hope so bright.
Gentiles and Jews, and earth and heav'n. Through him, from the great Father's throne, Rivers
of bliss come rolling down, ; And endless peace and life are giv’n. 3. No more the awful cherubs guard The tree of life with flaming sword,
To drive afar man's trembling race. At Salem's pearly gates they stand, And smiling wait, a friendly band,
To welcome strangers to the place. 4. While we expect that glorious sight, Love shall our hearts with theirs unite,
And ardent hope our bosoms raise.
HYMN 117. c. M.
"Tis music to our ears;
A cordial for our fears.
At hell's dark door we lay:
