HYMN 22. Fifth Part. C.M.
Happiness of departed Saints. (cont.)

  3 Before the Father's awful throne,
   The honours of the Lamb.
  4 With wond'ring joy they recollect
   Their fears and dangers past;
And bless the wisdom, pow'r, and love,
   Which brought them safe at last.
  5 Lord, let the merit of thy death
   To me be likewise giv'n;
And I, with them, will shout thy praise
   Eternally in heav'n.

HYMN 23. First Part. L.M.

  1 LORD, thy imputed righteousness
My beauty is, my glorious dress;
'Midst flaming w^orlds in this arrayed,
With joy shall I lift up my head.
  2 When from the dust of death I rise,
To take my mansion in the skies;
Ev'n then shall this be all my plea,
"Jesus hath liv'd and died for me."
  3 Bold shall I stand in that great day,
For who aught to my charge shall lay?
While thro' thy blood absolv'd I am,
From sin's tremendous curse and shame.
  4 Thus Abraham, the friend of God,
Thus all the armies bought with blood,
By faith on thee alone relied,
And in the Lord were justified.
  5 This spotless robe the same appears
When ruin'd nature sinks in years:
No age can change its glorious hue,
The robe of Christ is ever new.
  6 O! let the dead now hear thy voice!
Bid, Lord, thy mourning ones rejoice;

HYMN 23. First Part. L.M.
Justification. (cont.)

  6 Their beauty this, their glorious dress,
"Jesus, the Lord our righteousness."

HYMN 23. Second Part. L.M.
Union with Jesus.

  1 'TWIXT Jesus and the chosen race,
Subsists a bond of sov'reign grace,
That hell, with its infernal train,
Shall ne'er dissolve, or rend in twain.
  2 Hail sacred union, firm and strong!
How great the grace! how sweet the song!
That worms of earth should ever be
One with incarnate Deity.
  3 One in the tomb, one when he rose,
One when he triumph'd o'er his foes;
One when in heav'n he took his seat,
While seraphs sung all hell's defeat.
  4 This sacred tie forbids their fears,
For all he is, or has, is theirs;
With him their head, they stand or fall,
Their life, their surety, and their all.

HYMN 23. Third Part. C.M.
The Lord our righteousness.

  1 SAVIOUR divine, we know thy name,
   And in that name we trust;
Thou art the Lord, our righteousness,
   Thou art thine Israel's boast.
  2 The sins of ev'n the best spent day
   Might plunge us in despair;
Yet all the crimes of num'rous years
   Shall our great Surety clear.
  3 That spotless robe, which he hath wrought,
   Shall deck us all around;
In his imputed righteousness,
   No blemish shall be found.
