4 When sunk in sorrow, I despaired,

And changed my hopes for fears,
He bore my griefs, my burden shared,

And wiped away my tears ;
5 Therefore the joy by Him restored,

To Him by right belongs; And to my gracious, loving Lord

I'll sing through life my songs ; 6 For I am His, and He is mine,

The God whom I adore ;
My Father, Saviour, Comforter,
Now and for evermore.


The Lord Jesus Christ.



LL hail the power of Jesus' name,

Let angels prostrate fall; Bring forth the royal diadem,

And crown Him Lord of all. 2 Crown Him, ye martyrs of our God,

Who from His altar call; Extol the Stem of Jesse's rod, And crown Him Lord of all.

3 Ye seed of Israel's chosen race,

A remnant weak and small;
Hail Him who saves you by His grace,

And crown Him Lord of all.
4 Sinners! whose love can ne'er forget

The wormwood and the gall ;
Go, spread your trophies at His feet,

And crown Him Lord of all. 5 Let every kindred, every tribe,

On this terrestrial ball,
To Him all majesty ascribe,

And crown Him Lord of all.
6 O that, with yonder sacred throng,

We at His feet may fall !
There join the everlasting song,
And crown Him Lord of all!

75. RETHREN, let us join to bless

Christ our Peace and Righteousness; Let our praise to Him be given,

High at God's right hand in heaven. 2 Son of God, to Thee we bow, Thou art Lord, and only Thou ;

Thou the woman's promised seed :

Glory of Thy Church, and Head ! 3 Thee the angels ceaseless sing, Thee we praise, our Priest and King,

Worthy is Thy name of praise,

Full of glory, full of grace. 4 Thou hast the glad tidings brought Of salvation fully wrought;

Wrought, to set Thy people free,

Wrought, to bring our souls to Thee.
5 May we follow and adore
Thee, our Saviour, more and more ;

Guide and bless us with Thy love
Till we join Thy saints above.



YHRIST, above all glory seated !

King triumphant, strong to save!
Dying, Thou hast death defeated,

Buried, Thou hast spoiled the grave. 2 Thou art gone, where now is given,

What no mortal might could gain, On the eternal throne of heaven

In Thy Father's power to reign. 3 There Thy kingdoms all adore Thee,

Heaven above and earth below : While the depths of hell before Thee,

Trembling and defeated bow.
4 We, O Lord, with hearts adoring,

Follow Thee above the sky:
Hear our prayers Thy grace imploring,
Lift our souls to Thee on high !

5 So when Thou again in glory

On the clouds of heaven shalt shine, We Thy flock may stand before Thee,

Owned for evermore as Thine.
6 Hail! all hail ! In Thee confiding,

Jesu, Thee shall all adore,
In Thy Father's might abiding,

With one Spirit evermore !





COME, let us join our cheerful songs
Ten thousand thousand are their tongues

But all their joys are one.
Worthy the Lamb that died,” they cry,

To be exalted thus :"
Worthy the Lamb!” our lips reply,

For He was slain for us. 3 Jesus is worthy to receive

Honour and power divine ;
And blessings more than we can give

Be, Lord, for ever Thine.
4 Let all that dwell above the sky,

And air, and earth, and seas, Conspire to lift Thy glories high,

And speak Thine endless praise. 5 The whole creation join in one,

To bless the sacred name

Of Him that sịts upon the throne,

And to adore the Lamb.

8.7. COME, ye faithful

, raise the anthem ;
Sing to Him who brought salvation,

Wondrous in His works and ways;
God eternal, Word incarnate,

Whom the heaven of heavens obeys.
2 Ere He raised the lofty mountains,

Formed the sea, or spread the sky,
Love eternal, free and boundless,

Moved the Lord of life to die;
Foreordained the Prince of princes

For the throne of Calvary.
3 Now above the sapphire pavement,

High in unapproached light,
Lo, He lives and reigns for ever,

Victor after hard-won fight !
Where the


of the redeemed
Rings unceasing, day and night.
4. Yet this earth He still remembers,

Still by Him the flock are fed :
Yea, He gives them food immortal,

Gives Himself, the Living Bread :
Leads them where the precious Fountain
From the smitten Rock is shed.
