7 Let all our pow'rs be join'd
His glorious name to raise : Pleasure and love fill ev'ry mind,
And ev'ry voice be praise.
HYMN 30. First Part. C. M. Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many. 1 JESUS, in thee our eyes behold
A thousand glories Than the rich gems and polish'd gold,
The sons of Aaron wore.
Was on their altar spilt ;
Forever all our guilt.
With blood, but not his own,
Before the golden throne. 4 But Christ, by his own pow'rful blood,
Ascends above the skies;
Christ our High Priest.
Supplying Aaron's place,
As sware the mighty God,
For sinners, who his mercy seek;
To ev'ry tempted mind :
And laws and off'rings too,
The mighty work can do :
With Christ within the doors ; While everlasting love displays
The choicest of her stores! 2 Here ev'ry bowel of our God
With soft compassion rolls;
Is food for dying souls.
Join to admire the feast;
“ Lord, why was I a guest ?
“ And enter while there's room ; « When thousands make a wretched choice,
« And rather starve than come ?” 'Twas the same love, that spread the feast,
That sweetly forc'd us in ;
Else we had still refus'd to taste,
And perish'd in our sin.
Direct them how to come ;
And bring the strangers home.
That all the chosen race
HYMN 31. First Part. L. M.
Jesus hath the key of the kingdom of heaven.
And view the courts where Jesus dwells!
And here below his grace reveals.
Is borne by that majestic hand ;
Subjected all to his command,
The mighty obstacle to move;
And who shall shut the gates of love!
The glories of his Father's name ;
Thro' ev'ry changing age the same.
Where the whole weight of heav'n is hung
HYMN 31. Second Part. C. M.
The Bible. FATHER of mercies, in thy word
! Forever be thy name ador'd
For these celestial lines !
Exhaustless riches find;
And lasting as the mind.
And yields a sweet repast; Sublimer sweets, than nature knows,
Invite the longing taste. 4 Here springs of consolation rise
To cheer the fainting mind; And thirsty souls receive supplies,
And sweet refreshment find. 5 Here the Redeemer's welcome voice
Spreads heav'nly peace around ; And life and everlasting joys
Attend the blissful sound ! 6 O may these heav'nly pages
be My ever dear delight; And still new beauties may I see,
And still increasing light !
Be thou forever near ;
“Bid the whole earth my grace receive;
“ He shall be sav'd, that trusts my word ;
" And he condemn’d that won't believe. 2 “ I'll make your great commission known, “ And ye shall prove my gospel true; “ By all the works, that I have done, “ By all the wonders, ye shall do. 3“ Go heal the sick, go raise the dead,
- Go cast out deyils in my name ; “ Nor let my prophets be afraid,
“ Tho'Grecks reproach, and Jews blaspheme. 4 “ Teach all the nations my commands,
“ I'm with you, till the world shall end; “ All pow'r is trusted in my hands,
“I can destroy, and can defend.” 5 He spake, and light shone round his head,
On a bright cloud to heav'n he rode ;
HYMN 31. Fourth Part. L. M.
That seeks relief for all his woe? Where shall the guilty conscience find
Ease for the torment of the mind ?
Or form our nature fit for heav'n?
Make their own pow'rs and passions clean ? 3 In vain we search, in vain we try,
Till Jesus brings his gospel nigh;
That save rebellious souls from hell. 4 This is the pillar of our hope,
That bears our fainting spirits up ;
