HYMN III. ... L. M.
i Advent. ITHELord will come ! the earth shall quake,
1. The hills their fixed seat forsake; And, with'ring, from the vault of night
: The stars withdraw their feeble light. 2 The Lord will come ! but not the same : As once in lowly form he came, : A silent lamb to slaughter led,
The bruis’d, the suff'ring, and the dead. 3 The Lord will come! a dreadful form,
With wreath of flame and robe of storm; On cherub wings and wings of wind,
Anointed Judge of human kind! 4 Can this be He who wont to stray
A pilgrim on the world's highway ; * By pow'r oppress’d, and mock'd by pride ? • Oh God! is this the crucified ? , 5 Go, tyrants, to the rocks complain!
Go, seek the mountain's cleft in vain !
Shall sing for joy~ The Lord is come! 97. 'HYMN IV. 'L. M.
Nor longer might thy grace endure,
2 Come, Jesus! come! return again; . With brighter beam thy servants bless; Who long to feel thy perfect reign,
And share thy kingdom's happiness. 3 A feeble race, by passion driv'n,
In darkness and in doubt we roam;
Our hope, our harbour, and our home! . 4 Yet 'mid the wild and wintry gale,
When Death rides darkly o'er the sea, • And strength and earthly daring fail,
Our pray’rs, Redeemer, rest on thee. 5 Come, Jesus! come ! and as of yore
The prophet went to clear thy way,
A dawning to thy brighter day:
Our stony hearts for truth prepare;
Then come and reap thy harvest there! 98. HYMN V. C. M.
Christmas. 1 ITIGH let us swell our tuneful notes,
IL And join th' angelic throng;
The angels no such love have known . As we, to wake their song.
2 Good will to sinful men is shown,
And peace on earth is given;
With messages from heav'n.
His rising beams adorn:
• The promis'd child is born.' 4 Glory to God in highest strains
By highest worlds is paid;
And by our lives display'd. 5 When shall we reach those blissful realms,
Where Christ exalted reigns ? And learn of the celestial choir
Their own immortal strains ? 99. HYMN VI. (7's.)
Glory to the new-born King!
God to man is reconcil'd! 2 Joyful, all ye nations, rise,
Join the triumphs of the skies; With th' angelic host proclaim, • Christ is born in Bethlehem.'
4 Veild 17. ncarnate Deity; appear ;
· 3 Christ, by highest heav'n ador'd
Christ, the everlasting Lord:
Offspring of a Virgin's womb.
Hail th' incarnate Deity !
Jesus, our Immanuel, here! 5 Hail the heav'n-born Prince of Peace!
Hail the sun of righteousness!
Ris'n with healing in his wings. 6 Mild he lays his glory by;
Born that man no more may die;
1 In eastern skies unseen before; The wise men hail the welcome sight,
And seek the myst'ry to explore. 2 These ancient sages, led from far,
Began their doubtful, anxious way;
Stood o'er the place where Jesus lay.
3 They came—they saw—and they ador'd; ..
Each costly treasure they unfold,
Their myrrh, their frankincense, and gold. 4 That star to us its life imparts;
Let us our pilgrimage pursue,
To Bethl'em go and worship too.
And mark its path o'er earthly things,
Where Jesus reigns the King of kings. 6 Light of the world, the true light! rise,
Nor cease to shed thy cheering ray,
Thy glory shine in perfect day.
. : Epiphany.
D Hail the long-expected star!
Piercing through the shades of death; .
