PUBLIC WORSHIP IN GENERAL.
EXCELLENCE OF THE BIBLE.
2 Tim, iii, 15. 16.
(c. w.) Prefixed to the Old English Bible printed in 1607. 1 HERE is the spring where waters flow,
To quench the heat of sin ;
To lead our lives therein.
2 The tidings of salvation dear
Come to our ears from hence, The fortress of our faith is here,
And shield of our defence.
3 Read not this book in any case
But with a single eye;
4 Pray still in faith with this respect,
To fructify therein:
To mortify Thy sin.
5 Then happy thou in all Thy life,
What e'er to Thee befalls !
When God, by death, thee calls
Luke ii. 12. 1 GLORY be to God on high,
God, whose glory fills the sky; Peace on earth and man forgiv'n,
Man, the well beloy'd of heav'n.
Thee we now presume to sing;
Glorious all, and numberless.
Hail, the everlasting LORD!
Lord of pow'r, and God of love.
Christ, the FATĦER's only Son,
300 Isaiah vi. 2, 3.
7,7, 1 LORD ORD and God of heav'nly pow'rs,
[Hallelujah! Theirs, and O benignly ours ! Glorious King, let earth proclaim,
Saints attempt to chaunt Thy name. 2 Bow Thine ear,
in mercy bow,
3 Thee to laud, in songs divine,
Angels and arch-angels join;
4 Holy, holy, holy LORD!
Live, by heav'n and earth ador'd;
1 MEET and right it is to sing
Glory to our God aud King;
2 Join, ye saints, the song around,
Angels, help the chearful sound,
3 Praises here to Thee we give,
Gracious, Thou, our thanks receive;
4 Thro' the world's extent proclaim,
Endless praise to JÉSU's name:
(104th Psa.) 10 Praise ye
the LORD, adore His great name, His worship extol, His honor proclaim, Who for man's redemption, once offer'd His blood
All hail, holy JESUS ! our LORD and our God ! 2 Ye angels, on high, His goodness proclaim,
From regions of bliss, in mercy He came;
For thousands of sinners, on Calv'ry He bled, 3 O praise ye the LORD, in glory on high
Let all the Church join the praise of the sky, Immanuel's praise shall, while here, be our theme; Amen, Hallelujah, and worthy the Lamb.
Psalm xlv. 3.
Gird on Thy mighty sword,
On us descend.
2 Come, holy COMFORTER, Thy sacred witness bear,
In this glad hour : Thou, who almighty art, Now rule in ev'ry heart; And ne'er from us depart,
SPIRIT of pow'r !
3 To the great One in THREE Eternal praises be,
Hence evermore : His Triune Majesty May we in glory see, And to eternity,
Love and adore !
Psalm lxxxiv, 1.
1 WELCOME, sweet day of rest,
That saw the Lord arise : Welcome to this reviving breast,
And these rejoicing eyes !
2 The King himself comes near,
To bless His saints to day ;
And love, and praise, and pray.
3 One day amidst the place,
Where Thou, my God, hath been, Is better than ten thousand days
Of vanity and sin.
4. O that my soul could stay
In such a frame as this,
