HYMN 142. C.M.
The song of Zacharias.

  1 NOW, be the God of Israel bless'd,
   Who makes his truth appear;
His mighty hand fulfils his word,
   And all the oaths he sware.
  2 Now he bedews king David's root
   With blessings from the skies:
He makes the branch of promise grow,
   The promis'd horn arise.
  3 John was the prophet of the Lord,
   To go before his face;
The herald which our Saviour God
   Sent to prepare his ways.
  4 "Behold the Lamb of God," he cries,
   "That takes our guilt away;
"I saw the Spirit o'er his head,
   "On his baptising day.
  5 "Be ev'ry vale exalted high,
   "Sink ev'ry mountain low:
"The proud must stoop, and humble souls
   "Shall his salvation know.
  6 "The heathen realms, with Israel's land,
   "Shall join in sweet accord;
"And all, that's born of man, shall see
   "The glory of the Lord.
  7 "Behold the Morning Star arise,
   "Ye that in darkness sit!
"He marks the path that leads to peace,
   "And guides our doubtful feet."

HYMN 143. S.M.
The song of the Angels.

  1    BEHOLD! the grace appears,
The promise is fulfill'd;

HYMN 143. S.M.
The song of the Angels. (cont.)

  1 Mary, the wondrous virgin, bears,
   And Jesus is the child.
  2 To bring the glorious news,
   A heav'nly form appears;
He tells the shepherds of their joys,
   And banishes their fears.
  3 "Go, humble swains," said he,
   "To David's city fly;
"The promis'd Infant, born to-day,
   "Doth in a manger lie.
  4 "With looks and heart serene,
   "Go visit Christ your King;"
And straight a flaming troop was seen;
   The shepherds heard them sing:
  5 "Glory to God on high!
   "And heav'nly peace on earth,
"Good-will to men, to angels joy,
   "At the Redeemer's birth!"
  6 In worship so divine
   Let saints employ their tongues:
With the celestial hosts we join,
   And loud repeat their songs.
  7 "Glory to God on high,
   "And heav'nly peace on earth,
"Good-will to men, to angels joy,
   "At our Redeemer's birth!"

HYMN 144. C.M.
The song of Simeon - death to a believer desirable.

  1 LORD, in thy temple we appear,
   As happy Simeon came,
And hope to meet our Saviour here;
   O make our joys the same!
  2 With what divine and vast delight
   The good old man was fill'd,
