CHARLES W. QUICK,
HYMN 1. C. M.
HARK! the glad sound, the Saviour
comes, The Saviour promised long; Let every heart prepare a throne,
And every voice a song.
On him the Spirit, largely pour’d,
Exerts his sacred fire;
In Satan's bondage held;
The iron fetters yield.
He comes, from thickest films of vice
To clear the mental ray;
He comes, the broken heart to bind,
The bleeding soul to cure, And with the treasures of his grace, To enrich the humble poor
6. Our glad Hosannas, Prince of Peace,
Thy welcome shall proclaim; And heaven's eternal arches ring
With thy beloved Name.
HYMN 2. 88, 78.
Born to set thy people free;
Let us find our rest in thee.
Israel's strength and consolation,
Hope of all the earth thou art; Long desired of every nation,
Joy of every waiting heart.
Born thy people to deliver,
Born a child, yet God our King, Born to reign in us for ever,
Now thy gracious kingdom bring.
By thine own eternal Spirit,
By thine all-sufficient merit,
Raise us to thy glorious throne.
HYMN 3. C. M.
heart prepare him room, And heaven and nature sing.
Joy to the earth! the Saviour reigns:
Let men their songs employ; While fields, and floods, rocks, hills, and
plains, Repeat the sounding joy.
Let the whole earth his love proclaim,
With all her different tongues, And spread the honours of his name
In melody and songs.
No more let sins and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
Far as the curse is found.
He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove The glories of his righteousness, And wonders of his love.
