Hymn 1:20 (awake, My Heart, Arise, My Tongue)

Spiritual apparel; namely, the robe of righteousness,
and garments of salvation, Isa. 61. 10.

Awake, my heart, arise, my tongue,
Prepare a tuneful voice,
In God the life of all my joys,
Aloud will I rejoice.

'Tis he adorn'd my naked soul,
And made salvation mine,
Upon a poor polluted worm
He makes his graces shine.

And lest the shadow of a spot
Should on my soul be found,
He took the robe the Saviour wrought,
And cast it all around.

How far the heavenly robe exceeds
What earthly princes wear!
These ornaments, how bright they shine!
How white the garments are!

The Spirit wrought my faith and love,
And hope, and every grace;
But Jesus spent his life to work
The robe of righteousness.

Strangely, my soul, art thou array'd
By the great sacred Three:
In sweetest harmony of praise
Let all thy powers agree.

The song of Simeon; or, Death made desirable,Luke 2. 27 &c.Lord at thy temple we appear,As happy Simeon came,And hope to meet our Saviour here;O make our joys the same!With what divine and vast delightThe good old man was fill'd,When fondly in his wither'd armsHe clasp'd the holy child!"Now I can leave this world," he cry'd,"Behold thy servant dies,"I've seen thy great salvation, Lord,"And close my peaceful eyes."This is the light prepar'd to shine"Upon the Gentile lands,"Thine Israel's glory, and their hope"To break their slavish bands."(Jesus, the vision of thy faceHath overpowering charmsScarce shall I feel death's cold embraceIf Christ be
