2 Vain were her fairest beams display'd,

and vain her blooming store; ro Jesus, our exalted Lord,

Her brightness languishes to shade,

her beauty is no more. Fain would our hearts and voices raise A cheerful song of sacred praise.

3 But ah, how far from mortal sight

the Lord of glory dwells ! 2 But all the notes which mortals know,

A veil of interposing night Are weak, and languishing, and low;

his radiant face conceals. Far, far above our humble songs, The theme demands immortal tongues.

14 O could my longing spirit rise 3 Yet whilst around his board we meet,

on strong immortal wing,

And reach thy palace in the skies, And worship at his sacred feet;

my Saviour and my King! O let our warm affections move, In glad returns of grateful love.

5 There thousands worship at thy feet

and there (divine employ!) 4 Yes, Lord, we love, and we adore,

The triumphs of thy love repeat,
But long to know and love thee more;
And whilst we taste the bread and wine,

in songs of endless joy. Desire to feed on joys divine.

16 Thy presence beams eternal day

o'er all the blissful place; 6 Let faith our feeble senses aid,

Who would not drop this load of clay, To see thy wondrous love display'd;

and die, to see thy face? Thy broken flesh, thy bleeding veins, Thy dreadful agonizing pains.

HYMN 52. 6 Let humble penitential wo,

Well may thy praise our lips employ, And hold communion, Lord, with thee. While in thy temple we appear, 2 My heart grows warm with holy fire,

To hail thee sovereign of the year. And kindles with a pure desire,

2 Wide as the wheels of nature roll, To see thy grace, to taste thy love,

Thy hand supports and guides the whole : And feel thine influence from above.

The sun is taught by thee to rise, 3 When I can say that God is mine,

And darkness when to veil the skies. When I can see thy glories shine,

3 The flowery spring at thy command, I tread the world beneath my feet,

Perfumes the air, and paints the land ; And all that men call rich and great.

The summer rays with vigour shine 4 Send comfort down from thy right hand,

To raise the corn and cheer the vine. To cheer me in this barren land;

2 The Saviour, when to heaven he rose, “ Ye living men, come view the ground In splendid triumph o'er bis foes, “ where you must shortly lie.

Scatter'd his gifts on men below, 2“ Princes, this clay must be your bed,

And wide his royal bounties flow. " in spite of all your towers !

3 Hence sprang the Apostle's honour'd name, « The tall, the wise, the reverend bead Sacred beyond heroic fame; “ must lie as low as ours."

Hence dictates the prophetic sage, 3 Great God! is this our certain doom?

And hence the evangelic page. and are we still secure ?

4 In lower forms, to bless our eyes, Still walking downward to the tomb;

Pastors from hence and Teachers rise ; and yet prepare no more?

Who, though with feebler rays they shine, 4 Grant us the power of quickening grace,

Still mark a long extended líne. to fit our souls to Ay;

6 So shall the bright succession run, ORD of life, all praise excelling,

Through all the courses of the sun ;

Whilst unborn churches, by their care, Deign'st to make thy humble dwelling

Shall rise and flourish large and fair. with the poor of humble mind.

7 Jesus our Lord, their hearts shall know 2 As thy love, through all creation,

The spring whence all these blessings flow; beams like thy diffusive light;

Pastors and people shout his praise, So the scorn'd and humble station

Through the long round of endless days. shrinks before thine equal sight.

We plead for those who plead for thee, 4 When thine harvest yields thee pleasure

Successful pleaders may they be! thou the golden sheaf shalt bind;

2 How great their work, how vast their charge! To the poor belongs the treasure

Do thou their ansious souls enlarge; of the scatter'd ears behind.

Their best acquirements are our gain,
Chorus.

We share the blessings they obtain.
These thy God ordains to bless

3 Clothe, then, with energy divine
The widow and the fatherless.

Their words, and let those words be thine ; 6 When thine olive plants increasing,

To them thy sacred truth reveal, pour their plenty o'er thy plain,

Suppress their fear, infame their zeal. Grateful thou shall take the blessing, 4 Teach them to sow the precious seed, but not search the bow again.

Teach them thy chosen flock to feed; Chorus. These, &c. Teach them immortal souls to gain6 When thy favour'd vintage flowing,

Souls that will well reward their pain. gladdens ihy autumnal scene,

Hear from their lips the joyful sound; but thy vines the poor shall glean.

In humble strains thy grace implore, Chorus. These, &c And feel thy new creating power. 7 Still we read thy word declaring

6 Let sinners break their massy chains, mercy, Lord, thine own decree;

Distressed souls forget their pains ; Mercy, every sorrow sharing,

Let light through distant realms be spread, warms the heart resembling thee.

And Zion rear her drooping head.
