" Methodism has made liberal contributions to the hymnody of the Christian Church. first Methodist Society vs'as formed, its founders saw the importance of singreligious worship, and provided, out of the best available material then at cominj; mand, a collection of Psalms and Hymns for that purpose. John Wesley made some excellent translations of German hymns, and his brotlier, Charles Wesley, began to write His father, the Rector of Epworth, spiritual songs immediately after his conversion. and his elder brother, S. Wesle.y, jun., had each written a few gnod hymns at a still earlier date, which remain in use at the present time. Chas. Wes^ley continued to write hymns for nearly fifty yeai'S and he has left over six thousand five hundred hymns and sacred poems, some of which are amongst those most frequently found in collections Some of the followers of John Wesle-y have also contributed used in public worship. hymns, both in the last and in tliis century, \\hich have been included in many collections, and are of ]>ermanent interest.

Of the American book, only one copy is known to exi.st ; of tlie English reprint of 1738, three copies are known, one of which is in the Lambeth Palace library. [For details, see England Hymnody, Church of, §1.] The first Alethodists at Oxford sang psalms in proportion to tiieir earnestnes^s ni re^ ligion ; when they declined and shrank from the reproach of serious CiO'lliness, the singing in their meetings was given up. After the conversion of the two Wesleys, in May, 1738, singing was resumed; and from that time to the present, frequent singing has been an essential par) of Methodist worship. To encourage* this form of service, John Wesley, as early as 1 142, provided tune-books for the use of his follov^ers (some of which are in use at tht> present time); and that all might learn to sing, he printed the melody only. will now enumerate the original poetical works of John and Charles Wesley in detail.

Wesley,'' conttius 6 hymus, 3 of which are in the Wesley Hymn Book. The .'ecuud is a most important work," " liymns on the Lord's Supper," by Charles Wesley, a volume of 141 pages and 166 hymns, "with a preface concerning the Christian Sacrament and Sacrifice, extracted from Dr. Brevint.'" From this work 20 hymns were selected for the Wesley Hyinn Boo'ii of 1780. The hymns for "The Lord's bupper" have been often reprinted, but generally without the pieface, which was never intended, as Chailes Wesley has only versified portions of Dr. Brevint's remarks, in some of the hymns. In the extracts from Dr. Brevint the doctrine of the True and Real Presence is taught, and Charles Wesley embodies the teaching of the preface in his verses. I'l the foiirth secticu "Concerning the Sacrament as a Means of Grace," and in paragraph 5, are these words in reference to the Ufficacy of the Death of Christ "This victim having been oBfered up in tne fulness of times, and in the midb.t of the world, wiiich is Christ's great Temple, and having been thence carried up to Heaven, which is His Sanctuary, from And thus His Body and thence spreads Salvation all around, as the biirnt-oifering did its MnoU.e. Bloo 1 have everywhere, but especially at this Sacrament, a true and real presence." Catching the iame inspiration, Charles Wesley expresses the same idea in at least seven of the hymus wbidb

It is worthy of remark, that Charles Wesley, in his "Journals," makes no mention of the publica* tion of this volume of hymns during the year 1745, but Irom February to July ol that year, he makes special mention of about a dozen Sacramental services, which are desciibed as occasions of much blessing to himself and to others, and during the octave of Easter to be communicated every day. The It fecms probable, therefore, that the book latter halt of the year, the subject is scarcel> mentioned. was passing through the press during the months when he vras so much under Sacramental influence end power. In justice to C. Wesley, it should be recorded, that the "real presence" is not alluded to ia :iny of the six thousands hymns he wrote, apart from this i7.;5 book, nor did he ever allude to it in his puipit discourses. In his "Jourualg," he names many instances of his baptizing adult persons, but the subject of Holy Baptism does not seem to have inspired his muse, except in "God of eternal truth and '.o%e." in the "Hymns for the u-e of families," 1767, and one or two others. This is the more noticeable when it is considered how strict he was generally in observing the ordinances tf the Church.

The year 1746 was a remarkable one for the variety of subjects which occupied Charles Wesley's 9. Loetic mind; no less than nine .separate tracts of hymns were issued during that \ ear, including ''Hymns for Times of Trouble," "Hymns and Prayers for Children," "On the Trinity, "'"On the Great Festivals," "Of Petition and Thanksgiving for the Promise of the Father," "For Our Lord's Resurrection," "For Ascension Day," "Graces befoieand after Meat," and forthePublic Thanksgiving in OctoThese introduced 154 new compositions, of which only 12 found their way into the ber of that year Wer/iey Hymn Book of 1780. The Festival Hymns had Lampe's Tunes issued with them, which insured for them a long term of popularity.
10. Only one new work was i.ssued in 1747, "Hymns for those that seek and those that have Redemption in the Blood of Jesus Christ," containing 72 pages and 52 new hymns, 25 of which were

placed in the 17S0 book.
11. In 1748, C. Wesley wrote a number of hymns on Marriage, the subject being then uppermost in his mind, but they were not then printed. He was married in the spring of 1749, and when the arrangements were made with his brother respecting a stipend, the ques-liou ot hou.se-furnishing was not considered. To meet the emergency, C. Wesley gathered up all his unpublished compositions, and, without consulting his brother John, issued them in two volumes. The work was sold by subscription through the preachers, was a great success, and fully accomplished the object contemplated. Those volumes extended to 668 pages, with 455 new hymns, with the old title, "Hymns and Sacred Poems." In that work will be found the largest number of the author's best hymns, and it has yielded

143

compoiitions to the 1780 book.

12. In 1750 only two hymn tracts appeared, "Hymns for New Year's Day" and "Hymns Occasioned by the Earthquake, March 8th." The first contained 7 new hymns, one of which has been in use in Methodist Services once at least every year since it appeared, viz., the hymn sung at the close of every watch-night Service, commercing "Come let us anew, our journey pursue." The 2 hymns selected from the "Earthquake" Tract ("Woe to the men on earth who dwell," and "By faith we'find the place above') are said to be amongst the boldest of the poet's theological conceptions. In 1753 appeired "Hymns and Spiritual .Songs intended fcr the u.se of Real Christians." This was followed in 1756 by an enlarged edition of the "Earthquake" Hymns, with 22 hymns and Hymns for the Year 1756, oariicularly for the Fast Day, Feb. 6th, with 17 new hymns, of which 57 are in the 1780 Book. 13. In 1758, was i.ssued "Hymns of Intercession for All Mankind," but being without author's name, the popular judgment hymn given therein, "LoJ he comes with clouds descending" (p. 681, was for nearly a century, attributed to Martin Madan. This tract has 34 pages and 40 new bymns, of which 8 are in the 1780 book.

Three new works were issued in 1759, namely, "Funeral Hys"., enlarged to 70 pages, with 43 14. new hymns; " Hymns for the Expected Invasion," with 8 new hymns; and "Hymns to be used on «be Thanksgiving Day, November 29," and after it, 24 pages, with 15 new hymns.

This useful volume was used at the Foundry a 2nd ed., corrected, was issued in 1765, a 3rd in 1770, and a 4th in 1773. In 1761, to encourafje and improve the vocal part of Divine Service, John Wesley issued "Sacred Jlelody; or a Choice Collection of rsalra and Hymn Tunes;" another book of Tunes called "Sacred Harmony," •nd an abridged ed. of the latter.
;

One of Charles Wesley's largest contributions to the service of song in the Church appeared in and was entitled "Short >lyinus on Select Passages of Holy Scripture," 2 vols., containing no new compositions, out of which 99 were selected for the 1780 book. This work was rigidly revised by the author and Was republished in a .somewhat condensed form, in 2 vols., 1794-C6, after Lhe author's death.

Wesleyan Mdhodists. 1. With such a variety of works, most of which were occaby the Methodist Societies, much confusion and difficulty naturally arose, Wesley did wisely when, in 1779 (soon after he had opened his chapel in the City Road, London), he prepared out of those numerous works a collection for general use in all his societies, which was issued in 1780. The necessity for such a work was felt all over the country. It extended to 504 pages, with 16 pages of contents and inThe contents were divided into the five parts and twenty de.K, and included 525 hymns. sections as still retained in the revised ed. 1875. The 2nd ed., corrected, appeared in 178 L; the 3rd, in 1782; the 4th, in 1784; 5th, 1786; 6th, 1788; 7th, 1791. Up to 1791 it remained unaltered, although, every edition having to be set up afresh, errors had crept in. These increased till 1797, when a few of the preachers presumed to prepare a new edicioti, which they issued with an ornamental title-page. In it, about 36 hymns were ch,ui::ed, and some of the favorite hymns of the people, designedly excluded by John Wdsley, were included, and at the end 25 additional hymns were given, making the total 550. This edition gave so little satisfaction to the people that the Conference of lid) .ippoiutei Dr. Coke, G. Storey, H. Moore and Adam Clarke, "to reduce the large Hymn Book to its primitive simplicity, as in the second edition, with hberty to add a note in places to explain difficult passages for the sake of the unlearned, and with dis~ crdtionary power in respect to the additional hvmns." They rigidly revised the book, omitted 6 of the additional hymns, extended the work to 560 hymns and published if in 1800. The added hymns introduced a new and important feature into the coJlectior which is a distinct landmark (so to speak) in the history of Methodism, by including T li^-rans by C. Wesley on The Lord's Supper. All the unsold copies of the 1797 book wer>' d 's: roved, and the revised edition remained unaltered for thirty years.

2. The publication at Manchester, in 1825, of a piratical edition of the Collection, to gether with copyright needs, and the desire for greater variety of hymns, led the Conference to appoint the Revs. Thomas Jackson and Richard Watson "to make such a selection as would meet the wishes of the people, and in 1831 a Supplement was issued, extending the collection from 560 to 769 hymns. These were chosen from some of Charles Wesley's original MSS.; from his Festival Hymns and from the collection of Psabns and Hymns then known as the Morning- Hymn Book. Many from Dr. Walts were also added anil a few of a popular character which were favourites with the people. The Preface is dated November 9, 1830, and in this Dictionary the date of ttiis Supplement is given as 1830, the date of the Preface'. Of the entire collection, in'^lading this Supplement, 668 biymus are by the Wesleys (father and three sons), and 101 by 20 other authors. Dr.

3. The copyright of the entire collection had for some years depended on only a few hymns, and when the right in those had run out, a new collection became a necessity. A collection was issued by a London publisher independently of the Conference in 1873. It was compiled by a layman at Bristol, and It was an improvement on the 1831 booli. included 1076 hymns, amongst them being many of the best modern compositions, and The Wesleyan Conference, however, could not recognize the 71 chants and anthems. work, and the Book Committee were obliged to prepare a new collection. A large committee took the matter in hand, and devoted much time and care thereto. Tlie edition of 1800, up to hymn 539, w;^s retained, but each hymn was compared with the original and rigidly criticised; a few were omitted altogether; others had verses left out or added, and in this way 49 hymns were changed in the standard part of the collection. The new S'lppleimnt includes 487 hymns. Its contents embrace what may be designated as a I'.oeticai body of divinity. In this respect it is more complete than the book prepared by John Wesley, in that it includes hymns for Holy Baptism, the Lord's Supper and

Prayers for children. It is divided into nine sections, in whic:h the hymns are classified according to their subjects, or the season for which they are adapted, a specie! feature being the "Select Psalms." The authors and translators number 120. Of these, 74 contribute each one hyum, and of the rest 41 have hymns therein, numbering from two to nine each, the total ending with eleven by P. Doddridge, thirteen by J. Montgomery, fifty-eight by I. Watts and seven hundred and twenty-four by C. Wesley. For The MethodiM tne first time the authors' names are added in the index of first lines. H'jinii, Book, illustrated with Biography, History, Incident, and Anecdote, by George Joha Stevenson, M..1., 1883, deals with this collection in an .exhaustive manner.
4. Taken as a whole, whilst allowing for its distinct and definite advocacy of Methodist doctrine, and admitting the otherwise great preponderance of C. Wesley's hymns, we judge this book as ranking with the best in use among Protestant Christians. It ia Book, not wrongly intenseiv Metho'^'istic, and it is more. It retains the Standard eo-called, which John Wesley gave to his people in 1780; and it has added thereto muck that is choice and valuable from most branches of the Church of Christ. The wisdom displayed by the Conference in retaining the Standard portion of the old collection is realized when we find that it has done more to conserve the essential doctrines of Methodism amongst the multitude than the combined prose writings of all her divines.

This WHS followed in 1870 by a "Selection of Hymns suitable for use in Day and Buoday Schools." . "made by a number of Ministers, at the request of the Wesleyan Methodist Book Committee," which was compiled chiefly by the Rev. Samuel Lees, and published as: The Methodist Scholars' Hymn Book.—London, 1870.
.

Finally, in 1879, there was issued, after some delay, which is apologized for in the preface: The Methodist Sunday School Hymn Book. A Collection of Hymns and Spiritual Songs for Use In Schools and Families. Compiled by Direction of the Wesleyan Methodist Conference.-Londou.iSyq

This collection of 589 hymns, by a very large number of authors, is not only the best for children extant amongst the Methodist Societies, but it has no equal elsewhere except the Church of England Children's Hymn Book by Mrs. Cary BrJvk Both the official Hymn Books issued by the Conference have suitable tunes published with some of the editions. (See Children's Hymns, § iv.) Methodist New Connexion. 1. This branch of the Methodist family originated in iii. 1796; the cause being the exclusion of Alexander Kilham from the ministry by the From the time of J. Wesley's death, those preachers ^\hom Conference of that year. he had ordained had occasionally administered the Sacrament of the Lord's Sup]»er. One of the old preachers who had done so, was much blamed for his conduct. J\Jr. Kilham wrote a defence of his conduct in An Address to the Memhei^s and friends oj tlie Newcastle Society, in which he also discussed the question of the right of the people to That address in pamphlet form, v.as have the Sacrament from their own preachers. much commended by many of the old preachers, including Dr. Coke, H. Moore, J. Taylor, W. Bramwell, S. Bradburn, and others, some of M'hom freely disPawson, T. tributed the Address in their circuits. They also, by letters, encouraged Kilham to continue his advocacy of the rights of the people to the privileges asked for by them. Kilham wrote and spoke freely on the subject for a few years, and for so doing he waa *t the desire of Mr. Mather, censured by the Conference of 1793. Other preachers, %icluding Mr. Taylor and Mr. Bradburn, had also published their opinions support Kilham's views, but they were not censui-ed. For this act of partiality, the Confer#f ence was blamed, and Kilham was encouraged by many preachers who desired to conciliate the Societies rather than the Conference. At the Conference of 1795, some steps were taken to reconcile the contending parties, under the name of the "Plan of Pacification," but it did not fully meet the case. Soon afterwards Kilham published a pamphlet entitled The Progress of Liberty, in which he pointed out the defects in the Plan of 1795, and sketched the Outline of a Constitution. This Outline included the following principles

m

1st. That the power to admit and expel members should be the act of the preachers with the conBent of the people. 2. The members to have advice in choosing their leaders. 3. That local preachers be examined and admitted by preachers and lay officers conjointly. 4. That Quarterly Meetings should have a voice in recommending young men as preachers. 5. That the people have the right to representation iu all the Church Courts, including the Annual Conference. 6. That religion* worship be held in such hours as were most convenient for the people. 7. That the Societies receive the Sy'irameuts of Baptism and the Lord's Supper from the hands of their own Ministers.

For publishing this pamphlet, and advocating the principles it contained, Kilham waa and expelled from the ministry, in 1796. Those principles became the basis of the Methodist New Connexion, which took permanent form at a Conference held in August 1797, in Ebenezer Chapel, Leeds. Kilham's chief opponent was Alexander Mather, whom J. Wesley had ordained as a bishop to exercise authority in his SocieThe New Connexion was commenced with 9 circuits, 7 itinerant preachers (5 of ties. whom had hjlonged to the parent Society), and over 5,000 members. It was in defense of the principles advocated by Kilham' that the new Society was formed; and the preachers and lay-officers have exercised equal rights in the goy'ernment of the Society throughout its history.

The Revs. Thomas Mills and William Siiuttleworth were tlie acting members. The Preface says that they took from the Wes. H. Bk. and from its Supple-

hymns "for poetic merit, happy Scriptural illustration, and those which mo--t clearly expressed breatliings after peace and holiness. With these were combined a nil iii);^r of other hymns from various authors and a few by pious pei'sons of poetic genius, (composed for the work." Such hymns only were admitted as "gave prominence to those doctrinal and experimental truths which are the chief glory of MethodLsm." This work was divided into seven parts, and forty-one sections. All the copyright hymns in the Wes. H. Bk. were omitted, and, as far as the Committee knew them, the names of authors were added to the hymns. This was the first official Methodist Collection with authors' names. The total number of hymns was 664, and of ttiese nearly 50 were new, and by 27 autliors not found in the Wes. H. Bk.

4. This 'Sao Collection was undertaken by a Committee, with the Rev. Henry Piggin as chief acting member. It was first issued in May, 1868, and included 1024 hymns by 130 authors. A collection of suitable tunes for each hymn, prepared by the Rev. Tamss Og lea, has since been published. 5. Whilst Mr. Piggin and his coadjutors were preparing a new collection for congregational use, the Rev. John Stokoe, then a New Connexion minister, now a clergyman in the Irish Church, was preparing a smaller collection for use in their Sunday schools and homes, which was pub. in l^ecember, 1862, with the title The Juvenile Hymn Book. It contains 315 hymns, classified under seventeen sections, with authors' names added to each, where known.

iv. Primitive Methodists. 1. This branch of the Methodist family originated in 1810 by the expulsion from the Methodist Society of Hugh Bourne (q.v.). Previous to this, H. Bourne had compUed a small hymn book, which he published in 1809. What was long known amongst the Primitives as The Small Book was issued in 1821. and consisted of 154 hymns, most of which were by Charles Wesley and William Sanders, a few by Dr. Waits, and 16 by Bourne. This Small Book was widely known in all parts of th« land by the first couplet in the book

"Christ he

He
with the chorus:

siis on Zion's hill, receives poor sinners stiil,"

"I a soldier sure shall be Happy in lijternity."
2. With the growth of the Society, a larger number of hymns was required, and in 1824-25, Bourne prepared and issued wiiat he called the Large Hymn Book, which included 536 hymns. Of these, 16 were by William Sanders, and 146 were the joint production of William Sanders and Hugh Bourne a few were bv Dr. Watts, Cowper and Dr. Doddridge; 225 by Charles Wesley; and 20 new hymns by "Bourne. A lengthy preface describes the Service of Song as set forth in the Old and New Testaments, and deals with Private Prayer, Preaching, Prayer Meetings, Class Meetings, Love Feasts, Camp Meetings and Musical Instruments. Bourne says of the new hymns that they are "of a superior cast, and they lead into the mystery of faith."

He was converted under the Methodists in May 1789, was apprenticed to the drapery business, became worldly, lost his religion, and again gave his heart to God, Noveml^er 5th, 1795. He heard J. Wesley preach twice, and received his blessing. He began to preach in i8of, was married in 1S03, and made a local preacher in 1809. For preaching in villages beyond his own parish, where there was no Methodist preaching, hs was expelled from the Methodist Society. Being urged to continue his preaching, he found in North Devon fourteen villages without any places of worship, and in November, 1814, he lelt his home to itinerate and preach in those places. In October, 1S15, he preached in the house of Mr. Thorne, at Shebbear, and, being urged to do so, he then formed those present into a religious Society. This Society was at iirst known by thQ n3.m.& Arininian Bible Christians: after-wards the initial word was dropped, and they have since bee a known as Bible Christians, and sometimes locally, Brianites. Their chief Societies are in CornwaU and Devonshire, but they have a few elsewhere. O'Bryan compiled their hist hymn-book, about 1819, when then- first Conference was held. In 1829, a separation took place. O'Bryan left the body in 1831, and went to America, where he died, January 8th, 1S68. For his share in the copyright of the anl for other claims, the Conference allowed him twenty pounds a year hymn-book, The hymn book is divided into six parts and twenty-eight sections. The till he died. hymns are mostly those in use in the Wes. H. Bk., but they are rearranged throughout, and several by 18 other authors were added. In July ,1862, a fourth edition waa issued, with nine hymns .changed; the names of authors added as far as known, the index of Scripture texts enlarged, and an index of verses. The sixth edition is dated 1882. The Conference of 1885 appointed a committee to prepare a new and more comprehensive collection, to be published in due course.
In 1832, a Sunday School Union for the Bible Christians was formed at Sheb2. bear, in Devonshire, and they published The Child's Hynm Book for use in their schools. In 1863, a new ed. was prepared and published, containing 272 hymns, more than 66 of which were new. That book has served the Connexion nearly a quarter of a century, and is still in favour. The hymns are carefully classified, but no authors' names are given.

When the Methodist Ecumenical Conference was held in City Road vii. Conclusion. Chapel, in September, j88i, a suggestion was made to have one comprehensive hymnbook for all the branches of Methodism throughout the world. .This course, however, has not been adopted.

METHODIvST HYMNODY.
The Methodist hymn-writers are very limited in number. The provision made by Jno. aud Chas. Wesley for every aspect of Methodism, the stereotyped character of each book when issued, the great number of years it bad to run before any omissions or additions could be made, and the intense affection of Methodists for their old hymns, have had much to do in producing this result. When at rare intervals outlets for pentup poetic life were made in new editions of old books, and in collections for children and the young, W. M. Bunting, W. M. Punshon, B. Gough, J. Lyth, G. S. Rowe, J. Briggs, E. E. Jenkins, M. G. Pears, and a few others have produced lyrics of merit end usefulness; but no great singer has appeared in Methodism since Charles Wesley was gathered to his father.

The General Coaference of 1868 appointed Rev. H. M.. Belovbd Brethren Turner to revise our old hymn book, which was equivalent to authorizing him to compile a new one. He entered heartily upon his work, and at the end of eight years has given us a compilation, which, in many respects is excellent, inasmuch as it is more varied, comprehensive and useful than that which we have been using for the last forty years, because it has a larger collection of Wesleyan hymns, and is therefore richer in Wesleyan Christian ideas exjiressed in lyrical form Considered as a compilation, it is certainly a great improvement upon the whole book as it existed from 1836 to the present time. The Divisions, entitled "Birthdays," "Fast and Thanksgivings," "Morning and Evening," the "Seasons," "Baptisms," are enriched by additional hymns from the pens of other evangelical lyrists. New divisions have been created, embracing hymns and spiritual songs suited to tne progressive spirit of these modern times, such as the sections, entitled "Missions," "Dedication of Churches and Laying of Corner Stones," "On Keading the Holy Scriptures," "Revivals," "Patriotic Songs," "Farewell." The whole compilation ends with twelve sweetly solemn chants, and seventeen doxologies suited to all known metres. The usefulness of this edition is enhanced by having annexed to it (a) Oui Kitual.

THE HYMN BOOK OF

1892.

This collection of hymns and sacred songs was gathered and arranged by Rev. J. C. Embry, under the supervision of the Rev. Bishops T. M. D Ward, D. D., and B. T. Tanner, D D. who were appointed by the Episcopal Council to execute the work, at their meeting held in Macon, Ga January^ 1892 It is done in response to an alConcerning the work itself, we observe i most universal demand. 2. This demand was for a cheaper book, and one of better arrangment than the old, in order that a music edition might be made. These requirements necessitated, (a') a smaller book to meet the demand for price; (d) a g^'ouping of the hymns metrically, s^o as to easily supply music for the same. 3. The collection is made chiefly from our own book and that of the M. E. Church. A few are from the Presbyterian, a few are from the Baptist Hymnal, and still a few others from miscellaneous sources. Finally, there are eighteen selections from the Psalmody of the U. P. Church, all of which have been reduced to popular metre. The Wesleyan hymns prevail largely, and the whole collection will be found breathing a pure, orthodox and evangelical spirit. Original compositions by our own clergy are Bishops Payne, Turner, Handy, Tanner, and the Revs. H. T. Johnson, J. R Scott, and J. C. Embry. The Church Hymnal is the standard by which we are gauged ; it is doctrinal, core and centre, around which we all build our denominational loyalty and Christian devotion„

Behold the servant of the Lord I wait thy guiding hand to feel. To hear and keep thy every word. To prove and do thy perfect will Joyful from my own works to cease. Glad to fulfil all righteousness.

Thy work, O Lord, is all complete, And pleasing in thy Father's sight; Thou only hast done all things right.
Here, then, to thee thine own I leave; Mold as thou wilt thy passive clay; But let me all thy stimp receive, But let me all thy woids obey; Serve with a single heart and eye. And to thy glory li\e and die.

Demanding life, impatient for the skies. 3 See barliarous nations at thy gates attend, Walk in thy light, and in thy temple bend See thy bright altars throng'd with prostrate kings. While every land its joyous tribute brings.

And

on thy bosom reclined, screen'd from the heat of the day

And

overwhelm'd

at his feet.

How
To

happy the angels

that fall
:

Transported to Jesus's name The saints whom he soonest shall

call

share in the feast of the Lamb! No longer imprison'd in clay, Who next from his dungeon shall fly?

Who first shall he summon'd away — My merciful God— Is I?
it

2 'Tis there, with the lambs of thy flock, There only, I covet to rest To lie at the foot of the rock. Or rise to be hid in thy breast 'Tis there I would always abide, And never a moment depart. Conceal'd in the clefl of thy side. Eternally held in thy heart.
