4He spoiPdthepowers of darkness thus,

And brake our iron chains;
Jesus has freed our captive souls
From everlasting pains.

5 [In vain the baffled prince of hell

Hk cursed projects tri^s;
We tliat were doom'd his endless slaves,
Are rjus'd above ^ the skies.]

6 O ! for this love, let rocks and hiUs

Their las^g ^ence break,
And all harmonious human tongues

The Saviour's praises speak.
?" fYes, "we will prajse thee, dearest Lord,

Our souls are all on flame :
Hosanna« round the spacious earth,

To thine adored name !
8 Angels, assist our mighty joys ;

Strike all your harps of gold ; .
Bat when you raise your highest notes.

His love can ne'er be told.]

Christie kumiliatiqn and exaltation,

1 "yt^HAT equal honours shall we bring,

To thee, O Lord our God,ihc Lamb ,
When all the notes that angels sing,
Atq far inferior to ihy name ?

2 Worthy is he that once was slain,
The Pnnce of life, thatgroan'd and died ;.
Worthy to rise, and live and reign
At Bis almighty Father's side.

3 Power and dominion are his due,
Who stood condemn'd at Pilate's bar ;
Wisdom belongs td Jesus too,
Tho' he was charged with madness here.

iAH riches are his native right,
Tet he sustained amazing loss :
To him ascribe eternal might, . ,
AVho left his weakness on. the cross. <

5 Honour immortal must be paid,
Instead <>i scandal^ and of scorn?
While glory 'shines around his head.
And a bright crown without a thorn.

6 Blessings /orever on the Lamb,
Who bore the cursfe for wretched men ;
Let angels sound his sacred name,
And every creature say, Amen.

'. With living bread and cheerful wine

7 [How I rejoice, when on my head
Thy Spirit condescends to rest!
'Tis a divine anointing, shed

, Like oil of gladness at a feast.

Attend his household all their days ;
There will I dwell to hear his ^ord,
To seek his face, and sing his praise.]

Whtn I forsake his ways ; ,
And leads me, for his mercy's sakcj

In paths of truth and grace.
SWhen I walk through the shades of death.

Thy presencA is my stay;
A word of thy supporting br^th
Drives all my fears away.

4 Thy hand, in aght of all my foes,

Doth still my table spread ;
My cup with blessings overflow*.
Thine oil anoints my bead.

5 The sure provisions of my God

Attend me all my days;
O may thine house be -mine abode.
Ana all my work be praise.

6 There would I find a settled rest,

(While others go and come)
No more a stranger, nor a guest.
But like a child at home.
