Hymn 1:26 (bless'd Be The Everlasting God)

Hope of heaven by the resurrection of Christ,
1 Peter 1. 3-5.


Bless'd be the everlasting God,
The Father of our Lord,
Be his abounding mercy prais'd,
His majesty ador'd.

When from the dead he rais'd his Son,
And call'd him to the sky,
He gave our souls a lively hope
That they should never die.

What tho' our inbred sins require
Our flesh to see the dust!
Yet as the Lord our Saviour rose,
So all his followers must.

There's an inheritance divine
Reserv'd against that day,
'Tis uncorrupted, undefil'd,
And cannot waste away.

Saints by the power of God are kept
Till the salvation come;
We walk by faith as strangers here
Till Christ shall call us home.

Hymn 1:25 (all Mortal Vanities, Be Gone)
A vision of the Lamb, Rev 5. 6-9.All mortal vanities, be gone,Nor tempt my eyes, nor tire my ears,Behold amidst th' eternal throneA vision of the Lamb appears.(Glory his fleecy robe adorns,Mark'd with the bloody death he bore;Seven are his eyes, and seven his horns,To speak his wisdom and his power.Lo, he receives a sealed bookFrom him that sits upon the throne:Jesus, my Lord, prevails to lookOn dark decrees, and things unknown.)All the assembling saints aroundFall worshipping before the Lamb,And in new songs of gospel-soundAddress their honours to his name,The joy, the shout, the harmonyFlies o'er the everlasting hills,"Worthy art thou
