Hymn 1:21 (lo, What A Glorious Sight Appears)

A vision of the kingdom of Christ among men,
Rev. 21. 1-4.


Lo, what a glorious sight appears
To our believing eyes!
The earth and sea are pass'd away,
And the old rolling skies.

From the third heaven where God resides,
That holy happy place,
The New Jerusalem comes down
Adorn'd with shining grace.

Attending angels shout for joy,
And the bright armies sing,
"Mortals, behold the sacred seat
"Of your descending King.

"The God of glory down to men
"Removes his blest abode,
"Men the dear objects of his grace,
"And he the loving God.

"His own soft hand shall wipe the tears
"From every weeping eye,
"And pains, and groans, and griefs, and fears,
"And death itself shall die."

How long, dear Saviour, O how long,
Shall this bright hour delay!
Fly swifter round, ye wheels of time,
And bring the welcome day.

Hymn 1:22 (what Vain Desires, And Passions Vain)
Flesh and Spirit. Rom. 8. 1.What vain desires, and passions vain,Attend this mortal clay!Oft have they pierc'd my soul with pain,And drawn my heart astray.How have I wander'd from my God,And following sin and shameIn this vile world of flesh and bloodDefil'd my nobler frame!For ever blessed be thy graceThat form'd my soul anew,And made it of an heaven-born race,Thy glory to pursue.My spirit holds perpetual war,And wrestles and complains;But views the happy moment nearThat shall dissolve its chains.Cheerful in death I close my eyes,To part with every lust;And charge my flesh whene'er it riseTo leave them in the dust.My purer

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 wormHe makes his graces shine.And lest the shadow of a spotShould on my soul be found,He took the robe the Saviour wrought,And cast it all around.How far the heavenly robe exceedsWhat 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 workThe
