Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O Most Mighty, with thy Glory and thy Majesty.-PSALM xlv. 3.
JESUS, immortal King, go on: The glorious day will soon be won; Thine enemies prepare to flee, And leave a conquer'd world to thee. 2 Gird on thy sword, victorious Chief; The captive sinner's sole relief: Cast the Usurper from his throne; And make the universe thine own.

The Lord shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy GOD thy glory. Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified. ISAIAH IX. 19, 21.
COME, divine IMMANUEL, Come:
2 Carry on thy victory,
Spread thy rule from sea to sea;

3 Take the purchase of thy blood, Bring us to a pard'ning GoD ; Give us eyes to see our day, Hearts the glorious truth t' obey. 4 Ears to hear the Gospel sound, "Grace doth more than sin abound;" GOD appeas'd, and man forgiv'n, Peace on earth and joy in heav'n.
O that all in thee might know
6 Now thy mercy's wings expand,

I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace, day nor night: ye that make mention of the Lord, keep not silence, and give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.-ISAIAH lxii. 6, 7.
LOOK down, O God, with pitying eye, And view the desolations round; See what wide realms in darkness lie; And hurl their idols to the ground! 2 Loud let the gospel-trumpet blow, And call the nations from afar Let all the isles their SAVIOUR know, And earth's remotest ends draw near!
3 Triumphant here let Jesus reign,
And bow all hearts to his command:
Like heav'nly dew in copious show'rs;
