Hymn LX. Long Metro.
The Influences of the Divine Spirit.
And sing the wonders of thy grace
! Thy power conveys the blesings down
From God the Father and his Son. 2 Enlighten'd by thy heavenly ray,
Our thades and darkness turn to day ;
Our danger and our refuge too.
And breaks the chains of reigning sin ;
And forms our wretched hearts anew.
It makes the broken heart rejoice ;
WATTS. Hymn LXI. Common Metre. [*]
Thee, all thy creatures fing;
And heaven's high arches ring
How glorious to behold!
And starr'd with sparkling gold.
Their endless circles run;
And day obsys the sun.
4 The roaring winds stand ready there,
Thy orders to obey:
To make thy chariot way.
Obferve thy strong command;
Or fink them to the fand.
And strike our feeble sight,
With terror and delight.
Shine through the worlds abroad ;
Hymn LXII. Long Metre. .
Chris exalted a Prince and a Saviour.
The royal honours of thy throne; "Tis fix'd by God's almighty hand,
And seraphs bow at thy command. 2 Exalted Saviour, we confess
The sovereign triumphs of thy grace ;
And temper majeity divine.
And conquer millions by thy love. 4. Mighty to vanquish and forgive !
Thine Ifrael llall repent and live ;
And loud proclaim thy healing breath,
Walking by Faith.
FAITH is the brighteft evidence
It pierces through the veil of senfe;
And dwells in heav'nly light. It lets time, past in present view,
Brings distant prospects home;
Or thousand years to come.
By God's almighty word ;
And be again restord.
From his own country driven ;
But found his rest in heaven.
The promise in our eye ;

And kindles with a pure desire
And feel thine influence from above. 3 When I can say that God is mine i
When I can see thy glories shine ;

hymn LXV. Common Metre.
The Success of the Gospel.
To thy exalted Son
Thy word of life shall run !
For thine inheritance,
Thy empire shall advance."
Shall their Redeemer own ?
And bow before his throne ? 4 Are not all kingdoms, tribes and tongues,
Beneath the arch of heaven,
Without exception, given ? 5 From east to west, from north to fouth,
Then be his name ador'd;
Let earth with all its millions shout
Hymn LXVI. Common Metre. [xor b]
The Lord's Prayer.
Thou great and good alone!
Approach thy facred throne.
We join the solemn praise ; To thy great name, with heart and tongue,
Our cheerful homage raise.
Let every being own ;
Erect thy gracious throne.
Thy blest commands fulfil ;
Perform thy heav'nly will.
Our daily wants supply ;
Our souls which never die.
And let thy love forgive ; Teach us divine forgiveness too,
Nor let resentment live,
Permit us not to tread;
From our unguarded head.
