WATTS. The Messiah. 1 THE true Messiah now appears ;
The types are all withdrawn;
Before the rising dawn.
And much his truth he showed,
Where great assemblies stood.
WATTS. Christ's Commission. 1 RAISE your triumphant songs
To an immortal tune;
Celestial grace has done. 2 Sing how Eternal Love
Its chief-beloved chose,
From their abyss of woes.
3 Now, sinners, dry your tears ;
Let hopeless sorrow cease ;
And take the offered peace.
We lay an humble claim
And love and praise thy name.
WATTS. Christ's mediatorial Kingdom. Ps. 89. 1 HEAR what the Lord in vision said,
And made his mercy known:
On my beloved Son.
Among your mortal race;
The spirit of my grace.
With mercy by his side,
He shall in triumph ride.
He shall forever own,
And I'll support my Son.
My promises are strong ;
His seed endure as long."
Watts. The Glory of Christ. Ps. 45. 1 NOW be my heart inspired to sing
The glories of my Savior King ;
His form! how bright his beauties are ! 2 O’er all the sons of human race
He shines with a superior grace ;
And blessings all his state compose.
Gird on the terror of thy sword ;
With truth and meekness at thy side. 4 God, thine own God, has richly shed
His oil of gladness on thy head;
WATTS. Christ the Guide and Shepherd. 1 GREAT Prophet of my God,
My tongue would bless thy name;
Of sins forgiven,
And peace with heaven.
2 Be thou my Counsellor,
My Patron, and my Guide,
Ne'er run astray,
The crooked way.
His watchful eyes shall keep
He calls their names,
The tender lambs.
Mason. Christ the Image of God. 1 THOU, Lord, by mortal eyes unseen,
And by thine offspring here unknown, To manifest thyself to men,
Hast set thine image in thy Son. 2 As the bright sun's meridian blaze
O’erwhelms and pains our feeble sight, But cheers us with his softer
rays, When shining with reflected light, 3 So in thy Son, thy power divine,
Thy wisdom, justice, truth, and love, With mild and pleasing lustre shine,
Reflected from thy throne above.
4 O thou, at whose almighty word,
Fair light at first from darkness shone, Teach us to know our glorious Lord,
And trace the Father in the Son. 5 While we thine image, there displayed,
With love and admiration view, Form us in likeness to our Head,
That we may bear thine image too.
DODDRIDGE. Christ, the Sun of Righteousness. 1 TO thee, O God, we homage pay,
Source of the light that rules the day;
Reflects thy rays, and speaks thy name. 2 In louder strains we sing that grace
Which gives the Sun of righteousness,
And scatters healing from his wings. 3 Still on our hearts may Jesus shine
With beams of light and love divine;
And cheered by him, shall grow and thrive. 4 0, may his glories stand confessed,
From north to south, from east to west;
Wide as the circuit of the sun.
When, fixed on high in purer skies,
