L. M. [STEELE.] The exaltation of Christ. * NOW let us raise our cheerful Atrains,
And join the blissful choir above! There our exalted Saviour reigns,
And there they fing his wondrous love. 2 While seraphs tune th' immortal fong,
O may we feel the sacred flame;
Adore the Saviour's glorious name. 3 Jesus, who once upon the tree
In agonizing pains expir'd; Who di’d for rebels ; yes
'tis he! How bright! how lovely ! how admir'd ! 4 Jesus who did that we might live,
Did in the wretched traitor's place ;
For such imeasurable grace ! 5
Were universal nature ours,
$ Nature and art with all their pow'rs,
Would fill contess the offrer poor ! 6 Yet tho’ for bounty, fo divine !
We de'er can equal honors raise ;
[DODDRIDGE.] Jesus exalted as a Prince and a Saviour, XALTED Prince of life, we own
The royal honors of thy throne ;
'Tis fix'd by God's Almighty hand,
And seraphs bow at thy commands 2 Exalted Saviour, we confess
The foy'reign triumphs of thy grace;
And temper majesty divine.
Till all ihine enemies obey :
And conquer millions by its love. 4 Mighty to vanquisa, and forgive!
Thine Ifr’el shall repent and live;
The Victory of the King of Kings.
A burden for an angel's ongne. When Gabriel sounds these awful things,
He tures and summons all his Itrings. 2 Proclaim inimitable love,
Jesus, the Lord of worlds above,
The King of glory bows to death. 4 But see the wonders of his pow'r,
He triumphs in his dying hour,
And while by Satan's rage he fell,
He dalh'd the rising hopes of hell.
And lin was drown'd in Jesus? blood :
And conquers finners by his love.
The theme surmounts an Angel's tongue :
Jesus crowned Lord of all. - ALL hail the power of Jesus
' name ! Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown him Lord of all.
Who frot is altar call :
And crown him Lord of all. 3 Ye chosen feed of Isr’els race,
A remnant weak and small;
And crown him Lord of all. 4 Ye Gentile finners, ne'er forget
The wormwood and the gall;
And crown him Lord of all. 5
Let ev'ry kindred, ev'ry tribe,
To him all majelty ascribe,
And crown him Lord of all. 6 O that with yonder sacred throng, We at his feet
[RICHARDS.) Advocate, if any man fin. JESUS, before thy throne,
We bow with filial awe,
As sins, against thy law.
How 'scape from wrath divine ?
And claim us, Lord, as thine
Thy agony, and sweat :
Who paid the finner's debt. 4 Nor alk we this, thy grace,
For our vile selves alone :
Are, Lord, thy purchas'd own. 5 Hence all the shields of earth,
Shall found thy name abroad;
HYMN CIX. S. M. [RICHARDS.)
Mediator of a better Covenant. THY 'HY covenant, O Lord,
In all things order'd sure ; And founded on a stedfast hope,
Forever shall endure.
And who shall let thy hand?
It must establish'd hand.
The Gentiles trust in thee;
The great salvation fee.
Demand the grateful fong;
Mediator of the New Testament. ! ALL gracious Lord, we fing thy love
A love more strong than death :
With thy expiring breath.
We bless the ransom giv'n;
The richest blood of heav'n. 3 By thee, O Christ, from death redeem'd, Thy blood must sure prevail ;
