5 Trust Him, then, ye fainting pilgrims ;
Who shall pluck you from His hand? Pledged He stands for your salvation,
Pledged to give the promised land, Where among the ransomed nations Ye, too, round His throne shall stand.
J. HUPTON and J. M. NEALE. 116
S.M. double. YROWN Him with many crowns,
The LAMB upon His Throne; Hark! how the heavenly anthem drowns
All music but its own :
Of Him who died for thee,
Through all eternity.
Who triumphed o'er the grave,
For those He came to save.
Who died and rose on high,
And lives that death may die ! 3 Crown Him the Lord of Peace !
Whose power a sceptre sways
And all be love and praise.
And round His piercèd feet
Their fragrance ever sweet.
4 Crown Him the Lord of Might!
The King of kings alone,
On His eternal Throne;
Whose everlasting waves
Who lives, and loves, and saves ! 5
Crown Him the Lord of Heaven !
Enthroned in worlds above;
The wondrous name of Love !
For Thou hast died for me:
M. BRIDGES and G. TARING. 117
Let heaven and earth reply,
“Worthy the Lamb !”
Praising His name:
His dear fame abroad,
3 Join all the ransomed race,
Praise ye His name !
Worthy the Lamb !"
Praising His name:
YO, worship at Immanuel's feet,
Earth is too narrow to express
2 The whole creation can afford
Nature, to make His beauties known,
Must mingle colours not her own.
There He displays His power abroad,
4 Nor earth, nor seas, nor sun, nor stars, Nor heaven, His full resemblance bears;
His beauties we can never trace
8.7. FAIL! Thou once despised Jesus, Thou didst suffer to release us;
Thou didst free salvation bring. Hail ! Thou universal Saviour,
Bearer of our sin and shame! By Thy merits we find favour;
Life is given through Thy name. 2 Paschal Lamb, by God appointed,
All our sins on Thee were laid; By almighty love anointed,
Thou hast full atonement made. Every sin may be forgiven,
Through the virtue of Thy blood; Opened is the gate of heaven,
Peace is made 'twixt man and God. 3 Jesus, hail ! enthroned in glory,
There for ever to abide ;
Seated at Thy Father's side :
Spare them yet another year ; Thou for saints art interceding,
Till in glory they appear.
4 Worship, honour, power, and blessing,
Christ is worthy to receive;
Meet it is for us to give :
Bring your sweetest, noblest lays ;
J. BAKEWELL. 120
In a believer's ear !
And drives away his fear.
And calms the troubled breast; 'Tis manna to the hungry soul,
And to the weary, rest. 3 Dear name ! the rock on which I build ;
My shield and hiding place ;
With boundless stores of grace. 4 Jesus ! my Shepherd, Husband, Friend,
My Prophet, Priest, and King;
Accept the praise I bring.
And cold my warmest thought;
I'll praise Thee as I ought.
