4 'Who is the King of Glory, who?
The Lord that all his foes o'ercame !
The world, sin, death, and hello'erthrew;
And Jesus is the conqueror's name.

5 Lot his triumphal chariot waits,

And angels chant the solemn lay ;-
*Lift up your heads, ye heav'nly gates!
Ye everlasting doors, give way!

6 'Who is the King of Glory, who ?

The Lord, of boundless pow'r possest;
The King of saints and angels too;
God over all, for ever blest.

C. M. Christ's Ascension and
Glorification.

ANON

1

EYOND the glitt'ring starry skies,

Far as th' eternal hills,
There, in the

boundless world of light,
The great Redeemer dwells.

2 Immortal angels bright and fair,

In countless armies shine ;
At his right hand, with golden harps,

To offer songs divine.

3 “Hail Prince!" they cry, "for ever hail!

« Whose unexampled love
“Mov'd thee to quit these glorions realnis

" And royalty above."
4 Through all his travels here below,

They did his steps attend;
Oft wond'ring how and where at last

This scene of love would end.
5 They saw his heart transfix'd with wounds

His crimson sweat and gore;
They saw him break the bars of death,

As none e'er broke before.
6 They brought his chariot from above,

To bear him to his throne;
Clapp'd their triumphant wings and cry'd

“The glorious work is done.

I JESUS, am ascended high,

No more to suffer, bleed, or die;
I live, I live, my name is love;

I live with God supreme above.
2 Behold, I live for evermore,

My love's an everlasting store;
I live, to plead the sinner's cause,
To magnify Jehovah's laws.

The same.

3 I live to hear my children's cries,

I live to wipe their weeping eyes,
I live to sanctify their woes,

I live to conquer all their foes. 4 I live to help in each distress,

I live ť enrich their souls with grace,
I live to pour my spirit down,

I live ť ensure their heav'nly crown. 5 let believing souls rejoice,

And glory in their happy choice !
Let gratitude their hearts inspire,
And raise their hallelujahs higher.

CHARACTERS OF CHRIST.

8. 7. All in all.

HART. 1 LAMB of God, we fall before thee,

Humbly trusting in thy cross: That above be all our glory,

All things else are dung and dross, Thee we own a perfect Saviour,

Only source of all that's good : Ev'ry grace and ev'ry favour

Come to us through Jesus' blood.

2 Jesas gives us true repentance,

By his spirit sent from heav'n : Jesus whispers the sweet sentence,

“Son, thy sins are all forgiv'n." Faith he gives us to believe it;

Grateful hearts his love to prize. Want we wisdom ? he must give it:

Hearing ears, and seeing eyes.

3 Jesus gives us pure affections,

Wills to do what he requires;
Makes us follow his directions,

And what he commands inspires,
All our pray’rs and all our praises

Rightly offer'd in his pame,
He that dictates them is Jesus;

He that answers is the same.

6 When we live on Jesu's merit,

Then we worship God aright;
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,

Then we sayingly unite.-
This the whole conclusion of it,

Great or good whate'er we call;
God, or King, or Priest, or Prophet,

Jesus Christ is all in all.

ANOK

1 IN N Cbrist my treasure's all contain'd ;

By Him my feeble soul's sustain'd; From Him I all things do receive, Through Him my soul does daily live

2 With Him I daily love to walk,

Of Him my soul delights to talk;
On Him I cast my ev'ry care;
Like Him one day I shall appear.

3 Bless Him, my soul, from day to day;

Trust Him to bring thee on thy way ; Give Him thy poor, weak, sinful heart, With Him, O never, never part.

4 Take Him for strength and righteousness,

Make Him thy refuge in distress ;
Love Him above all earthly joy,

And Him in every thing employ. 5 Praise Him in cheerful, grateful songs,

To Him your highest praise belongs ; To Him who does your heav'n prepare, And Him you'll praise for ever there.
