REDEMPTION.

Hymn.

Redemption by Christ. 1 DEAREST of all the names above,

My JESUS and my GOD,
Teach me to know Thy heav'nly love,

The value of Thy blood!

2 'Tis by the merits of Thy death

Thy FATHER's love is seen ; 'Tis by Thy interceding breath

The Spirit dwells with men,

3 Till God in human flesh I see,

My thoughts no comfort find;
The holy, just, and sacred Three,

Are terrors to my mind.

4 But if IMMANUEL's face appear,

My hope, my joy begins ;
His Name forbids my slavish fear,

His blood removes my sins. 5 While some on their own works rely,

And some of wisdom boast, Thou great incarnate mystery, , In Thee is all my trust.

Hymn.

Redemption by Christ. 1 AND can it be that I should gain

An interest in the SAVIOUR's blood ? Died He for me, who caus'd His pain?

For me, who Him to death pursued ? Amazing love! how can it be

That Thou, my LORD, should'st die for me? 2 'Tis mystery all! Th’ Immortal dies !

- Who can explore His strange design? In vain the first-born seraph tries

To sound the depths of Love divine! 'Tis mercy all! let earth adore:

Let angel-minds inquire no more. 3 He left His FATHER's throne above,

(So free, so infinite His grace !) Emptied Himself of all but love,

And bled for Adam's helpless race: 'Tis mercy all, immense and free,

For, O my God, it found out me! 4 Long my imprison'd spirit lay

Fast bound in sin and nature's night; Thine eye diffus'd a quick’ning ray;

I woke; the dungeon flam'd with light! My chains fell off, my heart was free,

I rose, went forth, and follow'd Thee. 5 No condemnation now I dread,

JESUS, and all in Him, is mine! Alive in Him my living Head,

And cloth'd in righteousness divine, Bold I approach th' eternal throne, And claim the crown, thro' CHRIST, my own.

Hymn.
Redemption by Christ --Intercession,
ARISE, my soul, arise,

Shake off thy guilty fears;
The bleeding Sacrifice

In my behalf appears :
Before the throne my Surety stands;

My name is written on His hands. 2 He ever lives above

For me to intercede;
His all-redeeming love,

His precious blood to plead:
His blood aton'd for all our race,

And sprinkles now the throne of grace. 3 Five bleeding wounds He bears,

Receiv'd on Calvary;
They pour effectual prayers,

They strongly speak for me:
“Forgive him, o forgive," they cry,
“ Nor let that ransom'd sinner die."
The FATHER hears him pray,

His dear anointed One;
He cannot turn away

The presence of His SON:
His SPIRIT answers to the blood,

And tells me I am born of God. 5 My God is reconcil'd;

His pardoning voice I hear:
He owns me for His child,

I can no longer fear;
With confidence I now draw nigh,
And FATHER, ABBA, FATHER, cry!

Lymn.
It is finished."

1 HARK! the voice of Love and Mercy

Sounds aloud from Calvary!
See! it rends the rocks asunder,

Shakes the earth, and veils the sky!
- “It is finish’d,” . .
Hear the dying SAVIOUR cry!

2 It is finish'd! O what pleasure

Do these charming words afford!
Heavenly blessings, without measure,
Flow to us from CHRIST the LORD.

It is finish'd !
Saints, the dying words record.

3 Finishd, all the types and shadows

Of the ceremonial law; -Finish'd all that God had promis'd; Death and hell no more shall awe.

It is finish'd ! Saints, from hence your comfort draw.

4 Tune your harps anew, ye seraphs;

Join to sing the pleasing theme:
- All on earth, and all in heaven,
Join to praise IMMANUEL's Name!

Hallelujah!
Glory to the bleeding LAMB!

Harmony of Attributes in Redemption.

i FATHER, how wide Thy glory shines!

How high Thy wonders rise!
Known through the earth by thousand signs,

By thousands through the skies.
2 Those mighty orbs proclaim Thy power,

Their motions speak Thy skill : And on the wings of every hour,

We read Thy patience still. .

3 But when we view Thy strange design

To save rebellious worms,
Where vengeance and compassion join

In their divinest forms;

de Here the whole Deity is known,

Nor dares a creature guess
Which of the glories brightest shone,

The justice or the grace.
5 Now the full glories of the LAMB

• Adorn the heavenly plains;
Bright seraphs learn IMMANUEL's Name,

And try their choicest strains.

6 O may I bear some humble part

In that immortal song ;
Wonder and joy shall tune my heart,

And love command my tongue.
