PART II.

WATTS'S HYMNS ABRIDGED.

BOOK 1.

COLLECTED FROM THE HOLY SCRIPTURES.

HYMN 1. C. M.

2By his own pow'r were all things made,

By him supported all things stand; i New Song to the Lamb that was slain. He is the whole creation's head, Rev. v, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12.

And angels fly at his command.

3. EHOLD the glories of the Lamb, p 4But lo he leaves those hear'nly forms

Amidst his Father's throne: The Word descends and dwells in clay; Prepare new honours for his name, That he may hold converse with worms, And songs, before unknown.

Dress'd in such feeble flesh as they.

e 2 Let Elders worship at his feet, 0 5 Mortals with joy beheld his face, The church adore around;

Th’ eternal Father's only Son; With vials full of odours sweet,

e How full of truth! how full of grace! And harps of sweeter sound.

When thro' his eyes the Godhead shone! -3 Those are the pray’rs of all the saints, : 6 Archangels leave their high abode,

And these the hymns they raise: To learn new myst'ries here, and tell, e Jesus is kind to our complaints,

The love of our descending God,
He loves to hear our praise.

The glories of Immanuel.
4.5e

CASTLE STREET. s 6 Now to the Lamb, that once was slain,

Be endless blessings paid;
Salvation, glory, joy, remain,

HYMN 3. S. M.
Forever, on thy head.

The Nativity of Christ. Luke i, 30, &c. 07 Thou hast redeem'd our souls with

Luke ii, 10.
Hast set the pris'ners free; [blood,
Hast made us kings and priests to God,

1 EHOLD, the grace appears! And we shall reign with thee!

The promise is fulfilld!

Mary the wondrous virgin bears, 8 The worlds of nature and of grace

And Jesus is the child!
Are put beneath thy pow'r;

2-3Then shorten these de ying days;

4 To bring the glorious news, And bring the pronris'il hour.

A heav'nly form appears;
DEVIZES. Sr, Asaph’s. lle tells the shepherds of their joys,

And banishes their tears.
HYMN 2. L. M.

5 "Go humble swains," said he, The Deity and Tłumanity of CHRIST.

"To David's city fly; John i, 1, 3, 14; and Col. in 16; and Eph. jii, 9, 10,

“The promis'd infant, born to day,

“Does in a manger lie.
RE the blue lieav'ns were stretch'd
abroad,

6 "With looks and hearts serene, From everlasting was the Word;

“Go visit Christ, you: King; With God he was; the Word was God! -66.And straight a flaming troop was seen;. And must dinely be ador'd.

“The shepherds heard them sing:

07 "Glory to God on high!

“And heav'nly peace on earth; “Good-will to men, to angels joy, “At the Redeemer's birth.

ST. THOMAS's.

HYMN 5. C. M. Submission to afflictive Providence.

Job. i, 21.

d 6 [Ye perishing and naked poor,

Who work with mighty paint, To weave a garment of your own,

That will not hide your sin; 7 Come naked--and adorn your souls

In robes prepar’d by God; Wrought by the labours of his Son,

And dyed in his own blood.] e 8 [Dear God! the treasures of thy love

Are everlasting mines,
Deep as our helpless miseries are,

And boundless as our sins!]
. The happy gates of gospel grace

Stard open night and day:
-Lord, we are come to seek supplies,
And drive our wants away.

SUNDAY. ST. Anx's.

1

And crept to life at first, We to the earth return again,

And mingle with our dust.

c The dear delights we here enjoy,

And fondly call our own,
Are but short favours borrow'd now,

To be repaid anon. -3 'Tis God, who lifts our comforts high,

Or sinks them in the grave; He gives—and (blessed be his name!)

He takes but what he gave.

HYMN 9. C. M.

a 4 Peace, all our angry passions then,

Let each rebellious sigh
Be silent at his sovereign will,

And ev'ry murmur die.

The Promises of the Covenant of Grace.

Isa. Iv, 1, 2; Zech. xiii, 1; Mic. vii, 19;

Ezek. xxxvi, 25, &c. e 1 N vain we lavish out our lives,

To gather empty wind; The choicest blessings, earth can yield,

Will starve a hungry mind. o 2 Come and the Lord shall feed our

With more substantial meat; (souls With such as saints in glory love,

With such as angels eat.

[blocks in formation]

m3 Our God will ev'ry want supply,

And fill our hearts with peace; He gives, by cov'nant and by oath,

The riches of his grace. o 4 Come, and he'll cleanse our spotted

And wash away our stains [souls, e In the dear fountain that his Son,

Pour'd from his dying veins.

Jure d 7 Our heart, that flinty, stubborn thing,

That terrours cannot move, That fears no threat'nings of his wrath

Shall be dissolv'd by love.

02 Ho! all ye hungry starving souls,

Who feed upon the wind,e And yainly strive, with earthly toys,

To fill an empty mind:-
0 3 Eternal wisdom has prepard

A soul reviving feast,
And bids your longing appetites

l'he rich provision taste. 0 4 Ho!--ve who pant for living streains,

And pine away and die; o Here you may quench your raging thirst

With springs that never dry.

-8 Or he can take the flint away

That would not be refin'd, And from the treasures of his grace

Bestow a softer mind.

9 There shall his sacred Spirit dwell,

And deep engrave his law; And ev'ry motion of our souls

To swifi obedience draw.

e

o 5 Rivers of love, and mercy here,

In a rich ocean join; Salvation, in abundance flows,

Like foods of milk and wine.

o 10 Thus will he pour salvation down,

And we shall render praise; d We-the dear people of his love, And hemour God of grace.

HYMN 10. S. M.

5 “There's none can know the Father

right, The Blessedness of Gospel Times. Isa. v, “But those who learn it from the Son; 2, 7, 8, 9, 10; Matt. xii, 16, 17.

“Nor can the Son be well receiv’d,

“But where the Father makes him 1 LOW beauteous are their feet, known

Who stand on Zion's hill! Who bring salvation on their tongues, 6 Then let our souls adore our God, And words of peace reveal!

That deals his graces as he please;

Nor gives to mortals an account, b 2 How charming is their voice!

Or of his actions or decrees.
How sweet the tidings are!

OLD HUNDRED. o “Zion, behold thy Saviour-king, “He reigns and triumphs here!”

HYMN 14. L. M. 3 How happy are our ears,

That hear this joyful sound! The Triumph of Faith: or, Christ': un-Which kings and prophets waited for, changeable Love. Rom. viii, 33, &c. And sought, but never found!

1 WHO shall the Lord's elect con4 How blessed are our eyes,

demn? That see this heav'nly light!

'Tis God who justifies their souls; e Prophets and Kings desir'd it long,

And mercy, like a mighty stream, But dy'd without the sight!

O'er all their sins divinely rolls. 5 The watchmen join their voice, 2 Who shall adjudge the saints to hell? And tuneful notes employ;

'Tis Christ who suffer'd in their stead; o Jerusalem breaks forth in songs,

And the salvation to fulfil,
And deserts learn the joy.

Behold him rising from the dead!
6 The Lord makes bare his arm,

3 He lives! he lives! and sits above, Through all the earth abroad; For ever interceding there: Let ev'ry nation now behold

Who shall divide us from his love,
Their Saviour, and their God. Or what should tempt us to despair?
NEWTON. ST. THOMAS's.

4 Shall persecriti or distress,
Famine, or sword, or nakedness?

He, who hath lov'd us, bears us through,
HYMN 11. L. M.

And makes us more than conqu’rors too. The Huinble enlightened, and Carnal 5 Faith hath an overcoming pow'r,

Reason humbled: or, the Sovereignty It triumphs in the dying hour: of Gruce. Luke x, 21, 22.

Christ is our life, our joy, our hope;

Nor can we sink with such a prop. 1 PE HERE was an hour when Christ

6 Not all that men on earth can do, rejoie'd, And spoke his joy in words of praise;

Nor pow'rs on high, nor pow’rs below, “Father, I thank thee, mighty God,

Or wean our hearts from Christ our love. “Lord of the earth, and heav'ns and seas.
