1. HARK ! the herald angels sing,

Glory to the new-born King !
Peace on earth and mercy mild,

God and sinners reconciled.” 2. Joyful, all ye nations, rise,

Join the triumph of the skies;
With the angelic hosts proclaim,

“ Christ is born in Bethlehem."
3. Christ, by highest heaven adored ;

Christ, the everlasting Lord;
Late in time behold Him come,

Offspring of a virgin's womb.
4. Veiled in flesh the Godhead see ;

Hail the incarnate Deity!
Pleased as man with man t' appear,
Jesus our Immanuel here.

1. LET US with a gladsome mind

Praise the Lord, for He is kind :
Let us blaze His name abroad,
For of gods He is the God;
Who by His wisdom did create
The painted heavens so full of state :

For His mercies aye endure,

Ever faithful, ever sure.
2. Who did the solid earth ordain

To rise above the watery plain ;
And caused the golden-tressed sun
All day long his course to run ;
The horned moon to shine by night,
Amongst her spangled sisters bright:

For His mercies aye endure,

Ever faithful, ever sure.
3. All living creatures He doth feed,

And with full band supplies their need :
Let us, therefore, warble forth
His mighty majesty and worth,
That His mansion hath on high,
Above the reach of mortal eye :

For His mercies aye endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

Milton,

1. See the leaves around us falling,

Dry and wither’d, to the ground, Thus to thoughtless mortals calling

With a sad and solemn sound:Sons of Adam-once in Eden,

Where, like us, he blighted fellHear the son we are reading ;

Mark the awful truth we tell!

1. JESU, Refuge of my soul,

Let me to Thy bosom fly,
While the raging billows roul,

While the tempest still is high.
Hide me, O my Saviour, hide,

Till the storm of life is past;
Safe into the haven guide;

O receive my soul at last! 2. Other refuge have I none,

Hangs my helpless soul on Thee;
Leave, ah! leave me not alone,

Still support and comfort me.
All
my

trust on Thee is stay'd,
All my help from Thee I bring;
Cover my defenceless head

With the shadow of Thy wing. 3. Plenteous grace with Thee is found,

Grace to pardon all my sin:
Let the healing streams abound,

Make and keep me pure within.
Thou of life the fountain art;

Freely let me take of Thee;
Spring Thou up within my heart,
Rise to all eternity.

C. WESLEY.

2. Ye, 'on length of days presuming,

Who the paths of pleasure tread, View us,-late in beauty blooming,

Number'd now among the dead.'
On the tree of life eternal

Oh let all our hopes be laid:
This alone, for ever vernal,

Bears a leaf that shall not fade.

Bp. HORNE.
