Hail Him, the Heir of David's line, Whom David, Lord did call; The God incarnate! Man divine! And crown Him-Lord of all.

4 Ye chosen seed of Israel's race,
Ye ransomed from the fall,
Hail Him who saves you by His grace,
And crown Him-Lord of all.

5 Sinners, whose love can ne'er forget
The wormwood and the gall,
Go spread your trophies at His feet,
And crown Him-Lord of all.

6 Let every kindred, every tribe
On this terrestrial ball,

To Him all majesty ascribe,
And crown Him-Lord of all.

Here let the mountains thunder forth sono- | 2 Far up the everlasting bills,

rous

Alleluia.
Here let the valleys sing in gentler chorus
Alleluia.

In God's own light it lies;
His smile its vast dimension fills
With joy that never dies.

Thou jubilant abyss of ocean cry,

Alleluia. Ye tracts of earth and continents reply, Alleluia.

5 To God who all creation made, The frequent hymn be duly paid,

PEACE.

HYMN 260. C. M.

OF

H for a heart to praise my God,
A heart from sin set free!
A heart that always feels Thy blood,
So freely spilt for me;

Alleluia.

This is the strain, the eternal strain, the
Lord Almighty loves, Alleluia.

This is the song, the heavenly song, that 5 Far from this guilty world, to be
Christ the King approves. Alleluia.
Therefore we sing, both heart and voice
awaking,
Alleluia.
And children's voices echo, answer mak-
ing,
Alleluia.

Exempt from toil and strife;
To spend eternity with Thee,
My Saviour, this is life!

Now from all men be outpoured

Alleluia to the Lord:

With Alleluia evermore

The Son and Spirit we adore:

Praise be done to the Three in One!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Amen.

2 A heart resigned, submissive, meek,
My great Redeemer's throne;
Where only Christ is heard to speak,
Where Jesus reigns alone;

3 An humble, lowly, contrite heart,
Believing, true, and clean;
Which neither life nor death can part
From Him that dwells within;

4 A heart in every thought renewed, And full of love divine,

Perfect, and right, and pure, and good,
A copy, Lord, of Thine!

5 Thy nature, gracious Lord, impart;
Come quickly from above;
Write Thy new name upon my heart,
Thy new, best name of Love.

3 One narrow vale, one darksome wave,
Divides that land from this;

I have a Shepherd pledged to save,
And bear me home to bliss.

HYMN 261. C. M.

THE

HERE is a fold whence none can stray,
And pastures ever green,
Where sultry sun, or stormy day,

Or night is never seen.

4 Soon at His feet my soul will lie,
In life's last struggling breath;
But I shall only seem to die,

I shall not taste of death.

HYMN 262. C. M.

O

LORD, my best desire fulfil,
And help me to resign
Life, health, and comfort to Thy will,
And make Thy pleasure mine.

2 Why should I shrink at Thy command,
Whose love forbids my fears?
Or tremble at the gracious hand
That wipes away my tears?

3 No, rather let me freely yield

What most I prize to Thee,
Who never hast a good withheld,
Or wilt withhold, from me.

4 Thy favour all my journey through,

Thou art engaged to grant; What else I want, or think I do, 'Tis better still to want.

5 Wisdom and mercy guide my way,
Shall I resist them both?
The poor, blind creature of a day,
And crushed before the moth!

6 But oh! my inward spirit cries,
Still bind me to Thy sway!
Else the next cloud that veils the skies,
Drives all these thoughts away.

HYMN 263. P. M.

My Saviour, as Thou wilt !

Oh, may Thy will be mine!
Into Thy hand of love

I would my all resign.
Through sorrow or through joy,
Conduct me as Thine own,
And help me still to say,
My Lord, Thy will be done.
