87. Deliverance from the Bondage of the Law.

(Gal. iv. 31.)

LONDON NEW. C. M.
NOT to Mount Sinai's flaming height

We lift the fearful eye,
Where trumpet-blast, and clouds of night,

Proclaim Jehovah nigh:
The voice from Calvary we hear,

Which bids the curse remove :
By this redeem'd from guilt and fear,

Oh let us wake to love.
O Thou, whose blood hath bought our peace,

Whose love our sorrows bore,
Whose conquest makes our bondage cease,

Thee, Saviour, we adore! 88. The Bounties of Providence and Grace.

(John vi. 11-14.)

SURREY. P. M.
O LORD of earth, of air, and sea!
The hungry ravens cry to thee;
On thee thy various creatures call,
The common Father, kind to all :
Then grant thy servants, Lord, we pray,
Our daily bread from day to day. ,
The lions may with hunger pine ;
But, Lord, thou carest still for thine ;
Thy bounteous hand with food can bless
The lone and barren wilderness :
And thou hast taught our hearts to pray,
For daily bread from day to day.
And while we travel faint and slow,
Thy pilgrims, through a vale of wo,
Do thou thy gracious comfort give,
By which alone our souls can live;
And grant thy servants, Lord, we pray,
The bread of life from day to day.

89. The great I AM. (Exod. iii. 14. John viii. 58.)

LEONI. P. M.
THE God of Abraham praise,

Who reigns enthron'd above;
Ancient of everlasting days,

And God of love:
Jehovah, great I AM!

By earth and heaven confest;
We bow before the sacred name,

For ever blest.
The God of Abraham praise,

By whose almighty hand
We travel safely all our days,

To Canaan's land;
To Sion's sacred height,

Where God his throne maintains;
And glorious, with his saints in light,

For ever reigns.
The whole triumphant host
Give thanks to God on high ;
Hail, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

They ever cry:
Hail, Abraham's God and ours,
We join the heav'nly lays;
Thine are the heavens, with all their powers,

And endless praise. 90. God the Srength of our Salvation. (Exod. iii. 11, 12.)

MOUNT EPHRAIM. S. M.
HEIRS of immortal life,

While yet we sojourn here,
Oh let us our salvation work,

With trembling and with fear.
God will snpport our hearts

With might before unknown :
The work to be perform'd is ours;

The strength is his alone.
'Tis he that works to will;

'Tis he that works to do;
His is the power by wbich we act; i

Be his the glory too.

91. Our Deliverance from Bondage. (Heb. ix, 15.)

MANSFIELD. S. M.
- FROM Egypt's bondage come,

Where death and darkness reign,
We seek a new, a better home,
Where we our rest shall gain.
To Canaan's sacred bound

We haste with songs of joy,
Where peace and liberty are found,

And sweets that never cloy.
There in celestial strains

Enraptur'd myriads sing;
And love in ev'ry bosom reigns,

For God himself is king.
Soon may we join the throng;

Their joy and triumph share ;
And sing the everlasting song

With all the ransom'd there.

92. Christ our almighty Deliverer. (John viii. 58.)

Hart's. P. M.
SAVIOUR, whom our hearts adore !
Mighty, everlasting God!
Come with majesty and power;
Take the purchase of thy blood !
Joyful anthems we begin ; .
Songs of triumph raise to thee;
Thou hast conquer'd death and sin;
Thou hast set the captives free.
Glorious Victor! strong to save;
Full deliv'rance thou hast given:
Vain the terrors of the grave;
Through the flood we pass to heaven.
Sing, ye ransom'd of the Lord,
Rais'd by him to thrones above;
Angels, join with glad accord;
Sing the triumphs of his love.

93, For Pardon and Deliverance. (Exod. ix. 1.)

SICILIAN. P. M.
DREAD Jehovah, God of nations,

Thron’d in power above the skies!
Let thy people's supplications,

To thy mercy-seat arise.
Lo, with deep contrition turning,

Humbly at thy feet we bend;
See us fasting, praying, mourning;

Hear us, pardon, and defend.
Though our sins, our hearts confounding,

Loudly for thy vengeance call,
Thou hast mercy more abounding;

Jesus' blood can cleanse from all.
Pardon, Lord, our past transgression ;

O'er us stretch thy saving hand;
Save thy people from oppression ;

Guard thy church, and bless our land. 94. Christ's Zeal for Man's Redemption.

. (Phil. ii. 5-8.)

CROWLE. C.M.
Oh what unbounded zeal and love

Inspir’d the Saviour's breast;
When stedfast towards Jerusalem

His urgent way he prest.
With all his suff'rings full in view,

Our sorrows to remove,
Forth to the work his spirit flew,

Impell’d by heav'nly love,
Prepare our hearts to love thee, Lord,

Who all our griefs hast borne;
Prostrate we fall before thy cross,

And look on thee, and mourn.
Yet, while we mourn, may we rejoice;

And, as thy cross we see,
May each exclaim, in faith and hope,

“The Saviour died for me.”

95. Christ our Example of Humility. (Phil.ii. 5—11.)

LÉBBEUS. D. L. M.
COME, magnify the Saviour's love!
Come, praise our great Redeemer's name,
Who left the Father's throne above,
And stoop'd for us to death and shame.
At God's right hand exalted now,
With glory, majesty, and power,
Let ev'ry knee before him bow,
And ev'ry tongue his name adore.
Thy lowly spirit, Lord, impart;
With holy fear our bosoms fill;.
O give the meek, obedient heart,
To suffer and to do thy will.
Thy cross, blest Saviour, may we bear;
Mark the example thou hast given;
Follow in all thy footsteps here;
Rise to thy glorious rest in heaven.

96. God the Deliverer. (Exod. ix. x.)

TRURO. L. M.
ARM of the Lord, awake! awake!
Put on thy strength; the nations shake;
And let the world, adoring, see
Triumphs of mercy vrought by thee.
Say to the heathen from thy throne,
“I am Jehovah, God alone!”
Thy voice their idols shall confound,
And cast their altars to the ground.
Let Sion's time of favor come;
O bring the tribes of Israel home;
And let our wond'ring eyes behold
Gentiles and Jews in Jesus' fold.
Almighty God! thy grace proclaim:
Exalt the Saviour's glorious name;
Let ev'ry foe before him fall,
Confess'd, ador'd, the Lord of all!
