And Jesus now is gone
His people's cause to plead :
His place of service is :
A heavenly priesthood his :
Hid from the eyes of men,
Their great High Priest again :
C.M. Ballerma-Burton Sheffield. 1 Now let us cheerfully survey
Our great High Priest above,
And sympathetic love. 2 Though raised to heaven's exalted throne,
Where angels bow around,
With matchless honours crowned;
3 The names of all his saints he bears
Deep graven on his heart;
That he hath lost his part.
Our everlasting trust,
Have mouldered into dust.
May thy loved name be worn,
To endless ages borne.
L.M. 106. HELP IN TIME OF NEED.
6 lines. Eaton-Carey's Dresden. 1 When gathering clouds around I view,
And days are dark and friends are few,
And counts and treasures up my fears. 2 If aught should tempt my soul to stray
From heavenly wisdom's narrow way,
Still he, who felt temptation's power,
Shall guard me in that dangerous hour. 3 If wounded love my bosom swell,
Deceived by those I prized too well,
By those who shared his daily bread. • 4 If vexing thoughts within me rise,
And, sore dismayed, my spirit dies ;
The throbbing heart, the streaming eye. 5 When sorrowing o'er some stone I bend,
Which covers what was once a friend ;
For Jesus wept o'er Lazarus dead. 6 And O! when I have safely passed
Through every conflict but the last;
107. MESSIAH'S REIGN.
C.M. Huddersfield — Jerusalem-Burnett. 1 Behold my servant! see him rise
Exalted in my might!
I place supreme delight.
My Spirit shall descend; My truths and judgments he shall show
To earth's remotest end.
No threats from him proceed;
Nor break the bruised reed.
The weak will not despise ; Judgment he shall bring forth to truth,
And make the fallen rise.
Shall never know decline,
Receive the law divine. 108.
THE PRINCE OF PEACE. L.M. Angel & Hymn-Melcombe-Warrington. 1 Jesus shall reign where'er the sun
Doth his successive journeys run;
His kingdom stretch from shore to shore,
Till moons shall wax and wane no more. 2 For him shall endless prayer be made,
And praises throng to crown his head; His name like sweet perfume shall rise
With every morning sacrifice.
Dwell on his love with sweetest song;
Their early blessings on his name.
The prisoner leaps to lose his chains;
And all the sons of want are blest.
Death and the curse are known no more; In him the tribes of Adam boast
More blessings than their father lost. 6 Let every creature rise and bring
Peculiar honours to our king;
And earth repeat the loud amen.
78. & 6s. Morning Light-Berne-Bonchurch. 1 Hail to the Lord's Anointed!
Great David's greater Son!
