489. The same. (C.M.)
A Y Saviour, my Almighty Friend,
1 When I begin thy praise, Where will the growing numbers end,
The numbers of thy grace? 2 Thou art my everlasting trust,
Thy goodness I adore; TS
I speak thy glories more.
Of the celestial road,
To see my Father God.
For some surprising sin,
And mention none but thine.
The victories of my King!
Shall thy salvation sing. 29
6 My tongue shall all the day proclaim,
My Saviour and my God; His death has brought my foes to shame,
And drown'd them in his blood.
With this delightful song,
90. The Name of Jesus. (C. M.)
11 In a believer's ear?
And drives away his fear.
And calms the troubled breast; 'Tis manna to the hungry soul,
And to the weary, rest.
My shield and hiding place ;
With boundless stores of grace. Jesus! my Shepherd, Husband, Friend,
My Prophet, Priest, and King : My Lord, my life, my way, my end,
Accept the praise I bring.
And cold my warmest thought;
92. Not ashamed of Jesus. (L. M.)
3. Praise to the Saviour. (C. M.) THOU dear Redeemer, dying Lamb,
1 We love to hear of thee: No music's like thy charming name,
Nor half so sweet can be.
In mercy to us speak;
494. The same. Rev. v. 9. (L. M.)
In a new song of lofty praise;
The utmost glories ye can give.
From ev'ry kindred, tongue, and name,
And made us kings and priests to God. 3 Bless'd be thy name, for ever bless'd,
Of wisdom, power, and strength possess'd;
We give thee, as thine endless due..
And the dear Lamb who fills the throne. 5 Unnumber'd hosts thy glories sing,
They hail thee as their Lord and King:
