From his exalted state:
He sinned â€” woe came.and death and hell :
The ruin, how great!
3 Yet, praise to God! in mercy he
Hath formed a blessed plan :
By which the eartli is still to be
A dwelling place for man.
4 For man redeemed â€” all things made new.
Like Eden, fair and bright.
As when it rose to angels'yiew,
And filled them with delight.
6 The desert like the rose will bloom,
The wilderness rejoice: [gloom,
And earth, made free from sin's dark
Resound with cheerful voice.
1 Oh! for that tenderness of heart.
That bows before the Lord ;
That owns how just and good thou art,
And trembles at thy word.
2 Oh ! for those humble, contrite tears.
Which from repentance flow ;
Thatsense of guilt, which trembling, fears
The long-suspended blow.
1 When I survey life's varied scene,
Amid the darkest hours
Sweet rays of comfort shine between,
And thorns are mixed with flowers.
2 Lord, teach me to adore thy hand,
From whence my comforts flow.
And let me in this desert land
A glimpse of Canaan know,
3 And oh! whate'er of earthly bliss
Thy sovereign hand denies.
Accepted at thy throne of grace
Let this petition rise.
4 Give me a calm, a thankful heart.
From every murmur free ;
The blessings of thy grace impart.
And let me live to thee.
5 Let the sweet hope that thou art mine
My path of life attend.
Thy presence through my journey shine,
And bless its happy end !

Addressed their joyful song.

To enrich the humble poor.

Well deserves the name of Friend;
His is love beyond a brother's,
Costly, free, and knows no end:
They who once his kindness prove
Find it everlasting love.
2 Which of all our friends, to save us,
Could or Avould have shed their blood?
But our Jesus died to have us
Reconciled in him to God.
This was boundless love indeed;
Jesus is a Friend in need.
3 When he lived on earth abased.
Friend of sinners was his name;
Now, above all glory raised.
He rejoices in the same:
Still he calls them brethren, friends,
And to all their wants attends.
4 0, for grace our hearts to soften!
Teach us. Lord, at length to love;
We, alas ! i^orget too often
What a Friend we have above:
But when from death's fold we're brou ght,
We will love thee as we ought.
1 Who is this that comes from Edom,
All his raiment stained with blood:
To the slave proclaiiuing freedom,
Bringing and bestowing good;
Glorious in the garb he wears.
Glorious in the spoils he bears?
2 'Tis the Savior, now victorious.
Traveling onward in his might;
'Tis the Savior. how glorious
To his people is the sight !
Death is conquered, and the grave,
Jesus now is strong to save.
3 Mighty Victor! reign forever,
Crowned with glory thou hast won;
Never shall thy people, never
Cease to sing what thou hast done;
Thou hast conquered all our foes;
Thou hast healed thy people's woes.

With no plea thy grace to win.
But that thou canst save from sin,

There to thee I raise my prayer,

Save me, save me, or I die.

Beneath the chastening rod;
But in the hour of grief or pain,
Can lean upon its God.

When tempest rage without;
That when in danger knows no fear,
In darkness feels no doubt.

Nor heeds its scornful smile;
That sin's wild ocean cannot drown.
Nor its soft arts beguile.

And with a pure and heavenly ray
Lights up a dying bed.

Feels all another's pain;
To whom the supplicating eye
Is never raised in vain.
2 Whose breast expands with generous
A brother's woes to feel,
And bleeds in pity o'er the wound,

The paths of peace have trod,
Whose secret heart, with influence sweet.

The lily must decay;
The rose, that blooms beneath the hill,
Must shortly fade away.
4 And soon, too soon, the wintry hour
Of man's maturer age
Will shake the soul with sorrow's power,
And stormy passion's rage.

And with him bear a part;
When sorrow flows from eye to eye,
And joy from heart to heart!

And show a brother's love!

And Zion shout for joy.
