137. For his Humiliation & Glory. S.M.
Wherefore GOD also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name; that at the name of JESUS every knee should bow; of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that JESUS CHRIST is Lord, to the glory of GOD the Father.PHIL. ii. 9 to 11.
COME, all harmonious tongues,
'Tis CHRIST the everlasting GOD,
Proclaim "the word made flesh,"
What precious drops of sacred blood
3 The waves of swelling grief Did o'er his bosom roll;
And, for our sins his Father's wrath
Down to the shades of death
"Well pleased in his Son.
There his full glories shine
And there his saints and angels dwell

And they shall call his name IMMANUEL, which being interpreted is, GOD with us.-MAT. i. 13.
My song shall bless the Lord of all,
2 [Without beginning or decline,
3 As much when in the manger laid,
As when the universe he made, And fill'd the morning stars with joy. 4 Of all the crowns JEHOVAH bears, Salvation is the dearest claim;
That gracious sound well pleased he hears,
And owns IMMANUEL for his name. 5 A cheerful confidence I feel,
My well-plac'd hopes with joy I see; My bosom glows with heavenly zeal To worship him who died for me. 5 As man, he pities my complaints, His power and truth are all divine; He will not fail, he cannot faintSalvation's sure and must be mine.

GLORY, glory to our King!
Crowns unfading wreath his head! JESUS is the name we sing;
JESUS risen from the dead;
JESUS Conq'ror o'er the grave: JESUS mighty now to save. 2 JESUS is gone up on high,
Angels come to meet their King; Shouts triumphant rend the sky, While the victor's praise they sing: "Open now, ye heav'nly gates! "Tis the King of Glory waits."
3 Now behold him high enthron'd!
4 JESUS, on thy people shine!
Warm our hearts and tune our
That with angels we may join,
Share their bliss and swell their songs. Glory, honour, praise, and pow'r, LORD, be thine for evermore!
140. As Lamb. 6-4.
Worthy is the Lamb that was slain, to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. REV. v. 12.
GLORY to GOD on high!
His love and grace adore,
JESUS Our Lord and Gon,
Tell what his arm hath done,
3 Join, all ye ransom'd race,
In him we will rejoice,
And make a cheerful noise,
4. What tho' we change our place, Yet we shall never cease
Praising his name:
To him our songs we bring,
Let all the hosts above
