Hymns and Anthems.

ADVENT HYMN. Hark! the glad sound! the Saviour comes,

The Saviour promis'd long; Let ev'ry heart prepare a throne,

And evry voice a song.

He comes, the pris'ner to release

In Satan's bondage held;
The gates of brass before Him break,

The iron fetters yield.

He comes from thickest films of sin

To clear the mental ray;.
And on the eye long closed in night

To pour celestial day.. .

He comes to bind the broken heart,

To make the wounded whole,
To preach glad tidings to the meek,

And bless the humble soul.

Our glad hosannas, Prince of Peace !

Thine Advent shall proclaim ;
And earth and heaven shall join to sing
The glories of Thy name.

ADVENT HYMN. Lo! He comes, with clouds descending,

Once for favour'd sinners slain; Thousand thousand saints attending, Swell the triumph of His train :

Hallelujah! Amen.

Ev'ry eye shall now behold Him,

Rob'd in dreadful majesty ;
They who set at nought and sold Him,

Pierc'd and naild Him to the tree,
Deeply wailing, shall the true

Messiah see.

Blest redemption, long expected !

See, His solemn pomp to share, All His saints, by man rejected,

Rise to meet Him in the air : Hallelujah! see the Son of God appears !

Yea, Amen! Let all adore Thee,

High on Thine eternal throne; Saviour, take Thy power and glory, Claim the kingdoms for Thine own:

Hallelujah! Amen.

CHRISTMAS HYMN. Come, Thou long expected Jesus,

Born to set Thy people free ; From our sins and fears release us,

Let us find our rest in Thee.

Israel's strength and consolation,

Hope of all the earth Thou art ; Bless’d desire of ev'ry nation,

Joy of ev'ry faithful heart.

Born Thy people to deliver ;

Born a child and yet a King ; Born to reign o'er us for ever,

Now Thy gracious kingdom bring.

By Thine own Eternal Spirit,

Rule in all our hearts alone; By Thine all-sufficient merit,

Raise us to Thy glorious throne.
