HYMNS.

Advent.

HYMN I. C. M. 1 HARK the glad sound! the Saviour comes;

The Saviour promised long; Let every heart prepare a throne,

And every voice a song.

2 He comes, the prisoners to release,

In Satan's bondage held;
The gates of brass before him break;

The iron fetters yield.

3 He comes to bind the broken heart,

To make the wounded whole;
To preach glad tidings to the meek,

And bless the humble soul.

4 Our glad Hosannahs, Prince of Peace!

Thine advent shall proclaim;
And earth and heaven shall join to sing

The glories of thy name.

HYMN II. 8-7. ] COME, Thou long expected Jesus !

Born to set thy people free! From our fears and sins release us,

Let us find our rest in Thee!
2 Israel's Strength and Consolation,

Hope of all the earth Thou art !
Fond desire of ev'ry nation!

Joy of ev'ry contrite heart! 3 Born thy children to deliver;

Born a Child, and yet a King: Born to reign in us for ever;

Now thy gracious kingdom bring. 4 By thine own Eternal Spirit,

Rule in all our hearts alone :
By thine all-sufficient merit,

Raise us to thy glorious throne.

HYMN III. P. M. i Lo! He comes with clouds descending,

Once for favour'd sinners slain ; Thousand thousand saints, attending, Swell the triumph of his train.

Hallelujah! See the day of God appear ! 2 Ev'ry eye shall now behold Him

Rob'd in dreadful Majesty :

They who set at nought and scorn'd Him, Pierc'd and naild Him to the tree, : Deeply wailing,

Shall the great Messiah see. 3 Now redemption, long expected,

See in solemn pomp' appear;
All his saints, by man rejected,
Now shall meet him in the air.

Hallelujah!
Hallelujah! Amen.

: HYMN IV. - S. M. 1 Behold the Lamb of God;

Who takes our guilt away! See and adore his heav'nly love,

And praise Him day by day! 2 Be ev'ry valley high,

Be ev'ry mountain low!
The proud must stoop—the humble soul

Shall his salvation know. 3. The heathen realms abroad

Shall join in sweet accord,
And all the sons of men shall see

The glory of the Lord.
4 Behold the day-spring rise,

Ye that in darkness dwell!
He marks the path, which leads to peace,

He bursts the gates of hell.

Let ev'ry heart prepare to make him room; Let infant tongues proclaim his love

abroad, And join to praise their Saviour and their

HYMN VI. L. M.
1 WHEN Jordan hush'd his waters still,

And silence slept on Zion's hill;
When Bethel's shepherds thro’ the night,
Watch'd o'er their flocks by starry light.

2 Hark! from the midnight hills around,

A voice of more than mortal sound,
In distant Hallelujahs stole,
Wild murm’ring on the raptur'd soul.

3 Then swift to ev'ry startled eye,

New streams of glory light the sky;
Heav'n bursts her azure gates to pour
Her spirits to the midnight hour.

4 On wheels of light, and wings of flame,

The glorious hosts to Zion came;
High heav'n with songs of triumph rung,
While thus they struck their harps, and

Lsung5 “O Zion, lift thy raptur'd eye,

The long expected hour is nigh,
The joys of nature rise again,
The Prince of Salem comes to reign.

6 See mercy, from her golden urn,

Pours a rich stream to them that mourn;
Behold she binds with tender care,
The bleeding bosom of despair.
