Sinners (hall learn thy wondrous grace,

And saints thy goodness own.
4 Our tongues fhäll thy redeeming love

With facred rapture tell ;
And loud resound Immanuel's praise,
Who saves from death and hell.

HYMN LX.

C. M. [RICHARDS.]

1

Zeal of the Lord of Hosts.
ZEAL of the Lord of Hofts! thy zeal,

,
Shall of tranfgreflions make an end,

And righteousness bring in.
2 Yes! righteousness divine, complete,

The righteousness of God,
Imputed to the guilty soul,

By faith in Jesus' blood.
3 And will that God who gave his fon,

Refuse this faith to give?
Sure, no. It cannot, cannot be ;
Man shall believe and live.

HYMN LXI. C. M. [WATTS.]

Aaron, and the true Melchizedek.
JESUS, in thee our eyes behold

A thousand glories more,
Thap sparkled in the gems and gold
The fons of Aaron wore.
2 They first their own burnt-off'rings brought

To purge themselves from fin

Thy life was pure without a spot,

And all thy nature clean.
3. Once in the circuit of a year,

With blood, but not his own,
Aaron within the veil appears,

Before the golden throne.
4 But Chrift by his own pow'rful blood,

Ascends above the skies,
And in the presence of our God,

Shews his own sacrifice.
5 Jesus the king of glory reigns,

On Zion's heav'nly hill,
Looks like a lamb that once was slain,

And wears his priesthood fill. 6 He ever lives to intercede

Before his father's face :
Give him, my soul thy cause to plead,
Nor doubt the Father's grace.
HYMN LXII. L. M. [RICHARDS.]

Achor's vale, a door of hope.
FROM tribulation’s gloomy vale,

Where Jefus bow'd, where Jesus bled,
The suff'ring, conq’ring Lamb of God,

Shall lift on high, his glorious head. 2 For rebel man, the Saviour died :

For man, he burst the rocky tomb ;
And opes, by death, a door of hope,

That enters on the world to come.
3 The bow, the sword, the King of death,

Christ Jesus' death has took away ;

And Achor's vale, this vale of tears,
Now beams with everlasting day.

HYMN LXIV C. M. [DODDRIDGE.]

Office of Christ. HA

ARK the glad found! the Saviour comes

The Saviour promis'd long! Let ev'ry heart prepare a throne,

And ev'ry voice a song.
2 On him, the spirit, largely pour’d,

Exerts its sacred fire ;
Wisdom and might, and zeal and love,

His holy breast inspire.
3 He comes, the pris'ners to release,

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

The iron fetters yield.
4 He comes, from thickest films of vice,

To clear the mental ray ;
And on the eye opprest with night,
To
pour

celeitial day.
5
He

comas, the broken heart to bind, Tlie bleeding foul to cure ; And, with the treasures of his grace,

T" inrich the humble poor. 6 Our glad Hofannas, Prince of Peace,

hy welcome shall proclaim ; And Heav'n's eternal arches ring With thy beloved name.

HYMN LXV. C.M. [wa17s.]

Substance of the Levitical Priesthood.
THE
'HÉ true Meffiah now appears,
The types are all withdrawn ;

[ocr errors]

So fly the shadows and the fars,

Before the rising dawn.
2 No smoking sweets, nor bleeding lambs,

Nor kid nor bullock lain :
Incense and spice of costly names

Would all be burnt in vain.
3 Aaron must lay his robes away,

His mitre and his velt,
When God himself comes down to be

The off'ring, and the priest.
4 He took our mortal flesh, to show

The wonders of his love ;
For us he paid his life below,

And prays for us above.
5 Father, he cries, forgive their kins,

For I myfelf have di'd ;
And then he shows his open’d veins,
And pleads his wounded fide.

HYMN LXVI. L.M. [WATTS.]
The Typer and Prophecies fulfilled in Chrif.
BEHOLD the woman's promis?d feed !

Behold the great Melliah come !
Behold the prophets all agreed

To give him the superior room! 2 Abram the faint, rejoic'd of old,

When visions of the Lord he saw ;
Moses, the man of God, foretold

This great fulfiller of his law.
3
The types

bore witness to his name, Obtain'd their chief design and ceas’d ;
