Hymn 1:03 (behold, The Grace Appears)

The nativity of Christ, Luke 1. 30 &c. Luke 2, 10 &c.


Behold, the grace appears,
The promise is fulfill'd;
Mary the wondrous virgin bears,
And Jesus is the child.

(The Lord, the highest God,
Calls him his only Son;
He bids him rule the lands abroad,
And gives, him David's throne.

O'er Jacob shall he reign
With a peculiar sway;
The nations shall his grace obtain,
His kingdom ne'er decay.)

To bring the glorious news
A heavenly form appears;
He tells the shepherds of their joys,
And banishes their fears.

"Go, humble swains," said he,
"To David's city fly;
"The promis'd infant born to-day,
"Doth in a manger lie.

"With looks and heart serene,
"Go visit Christ your King;"
And straight, a flaming troop was seen;
The shepherds heard them sing:

"Glory to God on high,
"And heavenly peace on earth,
"Good-will to men, to angels joy,
"At the Redeemer's birth!"

(In worship so divine
Let saints employ their tongues,
With the celestial host we join,
And loud repeat their songs:

"Glory to God on high,
"And heavenly peace on earth,
"Good-will to men, to angels joy,
"At our Redeemer's Birth.")

Hymn 1:04 (questions And Doubts Be Heard No More)
The inward witness to Christianity, 1 John 5. 10.Questions and doubts be heard no more;Let Christ and joy be all our theme;His Spirit seals his gospel sure,To every soul that trusts in him.Jesus, thy witness speaks within:The mercy which thy words revealRefines the heart from sense and sin,And stamps its own celestial seal.'Tis God's inimitable handThat moulds and forms the heart anew;Blasphemers can no more withstand,But bow and own thy doctrine true.The guilty wretch that trusts thy blood,Finds peace and pardon at thy cross;The sinful soul averse to God,Believes and loves his Maker's laws.Learning and wit may cease their strife,When miracles

The deity and humanity of Christ, John 1. 1-3 14.Col. 9. 16. Eph. 3, 9 10.Ere the blue heavens were stretch'd abroad,From everlasting was the Word;With God he was; the Word was God,And must divinely be ador'd.By his own power were all things made;By him supported all things stand;He is the whole creation's head,And angels fly at his command.Ere sin was born, or Satan fell,He led the host of morning stars;(Thy generation who can tell,Or count the number of thy years?)But lo, he leaves those heavenly forms,The Word descends and dwells in clay,That he may hold converse with worms,Dress'd in such
