Father I will that they ... be with Me Jn 17 24

Awake, sweet gratitude, and sing
The ascended Saviour's love:
Sing how He lives to carry on
His people's cause above.

2 With cries and tears He offered up
His humble suit below;
But with authority He asks,
Enthroned in glory now.

3 For all that come to God by Him,
Salvation He demands;
Points to their names upon His breast,
And spreads His wounded hands.

4 His sweet atoning sacrifice
Gives sanction to His claim:
Father, I will that all My saints
Be with Me where I am.

5 Eternal life, at His request,
To every saint is given.
Safety on earth, and after death
The plenitude of heaven.

6 Founded on right, Thy prayer avails.
The Father smiles on Thee;
And now Thou in Thy kingdom art.
Dear Lord, remember me.

AUGUSTUS Μ TOPLADY 1740-78



Psalm 146
21 Arden. 54 Ealington. 126 St Stephen

1 Praise God. The Lord praise, O my soul.
2 I’ll praise God while I live;
While I have being to my God
in songs I’ll praises give.
3 Trust not in princes, nor man’s son,
in whom there is no stay:
4 His breath departs, to’s earth he turns;
that day his thoughts decay.


5 O happy is that man and blest,
whom Jacob’s God doth aid;
Whose hope upon the Lord doth rest,
and on his God is stay’d:
6 Who made the earth and heavens high,
who made the swelling deep,
And all that is within the same;
who truth doth ever keep:
7 Who righteous judgment executes
for those oppress’d that be,
Who to the hungry giveth food;
God sets the pris’ners free.
8 The Lord doth give the blind their sight,
the bowed down doth raise:
The Lord doth dearly love all those
that walk in upright ways.


9 The stranger’s shield, the widow’s stay,
the orphan’s help, is he:
But yet by him the wicked’s way
turn’d upside down shall be.
10 The Lord shall reign for evermore:
thy God, O Sion, he
Reigns to all generations.
Praise to the Lord give ye.



Grace Hymns 283 CM
Thou art a priest for ever after the order
of Melchizedek Ps 110 4

Thou dear Redeemer, dying Lamb,
We love to hear of Thee;
No music's like Thy charming name.
Nor half so sweet can be.

2 O, let us ever hear Thy voice.
In mercy to us speakl
And in our Priest we will rejoice,
Thou great Melchizedek.

3 Our Jesus shall be still our theme
While in this world we stay:
We'll sing our Jesus' lovely name,
When all things else decay.

4 When we appear in yonder cloud.
With all Thy favoured throng.
Then will we sing more sweet, more loud.
And Christ shall be our song.

JOHN CENNICK 1718-65
