3 "I have my days of combat known,
And in the dust was laid ;
And glory crowns my head. 4. “That throne, that glory, you shall share ;
My hands the crown shall give; And you the sparkling honors wear
While God himself shall live."
Within the veil, and see
And bright their glories be. 2 Once they were mourning here below,
And wet their couch with tears ;
With sins, and doubts, and fears.
They, with united breath,
Their triumph to his death.
4 Our glorious Leader claims our praise,
For his own pattern given,
Show the same path to heaven.
WATTI. Praise for the Gospel. Ps. 98. 1 TO our Almighty Maker, God,
New honors be addressed;
And makes the nations blessed.
2 He spake the word to Abraham first;
His truth fulfils the grace ;
And learn his righteousness. 3 Let the whole earth his love proclaim,
With all her different tongues,
In melody and songs.
WATTS. A blessed Gospel. Ps. 89. 1 BLEST are the souls that hear and know
The gospel's joyful sound;
And light their steps surround.
Through their Redeemer's name; His righteousness exalts their hope,
Nor Satan dares condemn. 3 The Lord, our glory and defence,
Strength and salvation gives; Israel, thy King forever reigns,
Thy God forever lives.
Sinai and Sion.
1 NOT to the terrors of the Lord,
The tempest, fire, and smoke,
Which God on Sinai spoke, 2 But we are come to Sion's hill,
The city of our God,
And spread his love abroad. 3 Behold the innumerable host
Of angels clothed in light !
Whose faith is turned to sight!
But one communion make;
And of his grace partake. 5 In such society as this
My weary soul would rest;
Must be forever blest.
Moses and Christ.
1 THE law by-Moses came;
But peace, and truth, and love,
Descending from above.
2 Amidst the house of God,
Their different works were done ;
But Christ a faithful Son. 3 Then to his new commands
Be strict obedience paid ;
The Sovereign and the Head.
Watts. The Law and Gospel. 1 THE Lord declares his will,
And keeps the world in awe;
Breaks out his fiery law. 2 The Lord reveals his face,
And, smiling, from above
The epistles of his love. 3 These sacred words impart
Our Maker's just commands,
And vengeance of his hands. 4 Hence we awake our fear ;
We draw our comfort hence;
And armor of defence.
We take the offered grace,
6 In vain shall Satan rage
Against a book divine, Where wrath and lightning guard the page,
Where beams of mercy shine.
Paradise on Earth.
1 GLORY to God, that walks the sky,
And sends his blessings through,
And gives a taste below. 2 When Christ, with all his graces crowned,
Sheds his kind beams abroad, 'Tis a young heaven on earthly ground,
And glory in the bud.
In this wild desert springs,
On sweet, celestial things.
And each his glory shows;
The fairest flower that blows.
How soon my sins arise,
From these lamenting eyes! 6 Up to the fields above the skies
My hasty feet would go;
And joys unwithering grow.
