3 Mourning souls! refrain your tears ;

Trembling hearts! dismiss your fears ;
See the guilt and curse remove,

Cancelled by redeeming love.
4 Ye who long, alas ! have been

Willing slaves of death and sin,
Now from bliss no longer rove;

Listen to redeeming love.
5 Welcome all hy sin oppressed :

He alone can give you rest,
Who descended from above,

Prompted by redeeming love.
6 Hither, then, your tribute bring:

Strike aloud each joyful string :
Saints below, and saints above,

Join to praise redeeming love. 155. CARIST ALL IN ALL.

C.M. New St. Ann's-Newington-Harrington. 1 O for a thousand tongues to sing

My great Redeemer's praise;
The glories of my God and King,

The triumphs of his grace!
2 My gracious Master, and my God,

Assist me to proclaim,
To spread through all the earth abroad,

The honours of thy name.

3 Jesus, the name that charms our fears,

That bids our sorrows cease; 'Tis music in the sinner's ears,

'Tis life, and health, and peace. 4 He pardons and subdues our sin,

He sets the prisoner free;
His blood can make the foulest clean,

His blood avails for me.
5 He speaks, and listening to his voice,

New life the dead receive;
The mournful, broken hearts rejoice,

The humble poor believe. 6 Hear him, ye deaf—in praise, ye dumb,

Your loosened tongues employ;
Ye blind, behold your Saviour come;

And leap, ye lame, for joy!
7 Look unto him, ye nations; own

Your God, ye fallen race;
Look, and be saved through faith alone,

Be justified by grace.

CHRIST'S PRECIOUSNESS.

C.M. Manchester-Gloucester-Burnett. 1 Jesus, I love thy charming name,

'Tis music to mine ear;
Fain would I sound it out so loud

That earth and heaven should hear.

2 Yes, thou art precious to my soul,

My transport and my trust;
Jewels to thee are gaudy toys,

And gold is sordid dust.
3 All my capacious powers can wish,

In thee doth richly meet;
Nor to mine eyes is light so dear,

Nor friendship half so sweet.
4 Thy grace still dwells upon my heart,

And sheds its fragrance there;
The noblest balm of all its wounds,

The cordial of its care.
5 I'll speak the honours of thy name

With my last labouring breath;
Then, speechless, clasp thee in mine arms,

The antidote of death.

THE NAME OF JESUS.

C.M. Glencairn-New York-Harborough. 1 How sweet the name of Jesus sounds

In a believer's ear!
It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds,

And drives away his fear.
2 It makes the wounded spirit whole,

And calms the troubled breast; 'Tis manna to the hungry soul,

And to the weary rest.

3 Dear name! the rock on which I build,

My shield and hiding-place; My never-failing treasury, filled

With boundless stores of grace. 4 By thee my prayers acceptance gain,

Although with sin defiled; Satan accuses me in vain,

And I am owned a child. 5 Jesus! my Shepherd, Husband, Friend,

My Prophet, Priest, and King; My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End,

Accept the praise I bring. 6 Weak is the effort of my heart,

And cold my warmest thought; But when I see thee as thou art,

I'll praise thee as I ought.
7 Till then, I would thy love proclaim

With every fleeting breath;
And may- the music of thy name
Refresh my soul in death.
THE NAME THAT IS ABOVE EVERY

Our faithful, unchangeable Friend; Whose love is as great as his power,

And knows neither measure nor end.

'Tis Jesus, the First and the Last,

Whose Spirit shall guide us safe home; We'll praise him for all that is past,

And trust him for all that's to come. 159.

A SONG OF SALVATION.

Knox-Sharon-Ludstone. 1 I will praise thee every day!

Now thine anger's turned away;
O how sweet the thoughts that rise

From the bleeding Sacrifice. 2 Now within the gospel field,

Wells of free salvation yield
Streams of life a plenteous store:

And my soul shall thirst no more. 3 Jesus is become at length

My salvation and my strength;
And his praises shall prolong,

While I live my cheerful song.
4 Praise ye, then, his glorious name;

Publish his exalted fame;
Still his worth your praise exceeds;

Excellent are all his deeds.
5 Raise again the joyful sound;

Let the nations roll it round;
Zion, shout, for this is he,
God, the Saviour, dwells in thee.
