4 Not by the terrors of a slave
Do they perform his will;

But with the noblest powers they have
His sweet commands fulfil.

5 They find access at ev'ry hour,
To God within the veil :

Hence they derive a quick'ning power,
And joys that never fail.

6 Lord, I address thy heav'nly throne,
Call me a child of thine;
Send down the Spirit of thy Son
To form my heart divine.

HYMN CXCIX. VARIOUS SCRIPTURES.
1 Go, worship at Immanuel's feet;
See in his face what wonders meet :
Earth is too narrow to express
His worth, his glory, or his grace.
2 Is he compar'd to wine or bread ?
Dear Lord, our souls would thus be fed:
That flesh, that dying blood of thine,
Is bread of life, is heav'nly wine.

3 Is he a rock? How firm he proves!
The Rock of ages never moves;
Yet the sweet streams that from him flow
Attend us all the desert through.

4 Is he design'd a corner-stone,

For men to build their heav'n upon?
I'll make him my foundation too,
Nor fear the plots of hell below.
5 Is he a sun? His beams are grace,
His course is joy and righteousness;
Nations rejoice when he appears

To chase their clouds, and dry their tears

6 Oh, let me climb those higher skies, Where storms and darkness never rise: There he displays his power abroad, And shines and reigns th' incarnate God.

PRAISE God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise him, all creatures here below;
Praise him above, ye heav'nly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!

II.

To God the Father, God the Son,
And God the Spirit, Three in One,
Be honour, praise, and glory giv'n,
By all on earth, and all in heav'n.

III.

1 THE God of mercy be ador'd,
Who calls our souls from death
Who saves by his redeeming word,
And new-creating breath.

2 To praise the Father, and the Son,
And Spirit, all divine,

The One in Three, and Three in One,
Let saints and angels join.

IV.

GIVE to the Father praise,
Give glory to the Son,
And to the Spirit of his grace
Be equal honour done.

HOSANNAS.

.I.

1 HOSANNA to King David's Son,
Who reigns on a superior throne;
We bless the Prince of heav'nly birth,
Who brings salvation down to earth.
2 Let ev'ry nation, ev'ry age,
In this delightful work engage;
Old men and babes in Zion sing
The growing glories of her King.

II.

1 HOSANNA to the Prince of grace;
Zion, behold thy King;

Proclaim the Son of David's race,
And teach the babes to sing.

2 Hosanna to th' incarnate Word,
Who from the Father came;
Ascribe salvation to the Lord,
With blessings on his name.

III.

HOSANNA to the Son
Of David and of God,

Who brought the news of pardon down,

And bought it with his blood.

To Christ th' anointed King
Be endless blessings giv'n;

Let the whole earth his glory sing,
Who made our peace with heav'n.

AFFLICTION is a stormy deep..
Alas! and did my Saviour bleed
All hail the great Immanuel's name.
All people that on earth do dwell
Almighty Maker, God......
Amidst thy wrath remember love,
And must this body die........
And will th' eternal King

Another six days' work is done..
Are we the soldiers of the cross
Arise, O King of Grace, arise
Arm of the Lord, awake! awake..
Ascend thy throne, Almighty King.
As new-born babes desire the breast..
As pants the hart for cooling springs
Attend, while God's exalted Son
Awake, my soul, and with the sun..
Awake my zeal, awake my love....
Awake, our souls! away our fears..

Before Jehovah's awful throne.
Behold, the blind their sight receive..

Father divine, thy piercing eye.

For ever blessed be the Lord..
Fountain of mercy, God of love...
Frequent the day of God returns
From all that dwell below the skies.
