Sing in exultation;

“ He made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men.' - Philip. ii. 7. 15 FROM far sunrise at early morn
To earth's remotest ring,
All praise to Christ, our King !
In servile guise array'd,
And save the souls He made.

In manger, lo! He lies;
Who stills creation's cries.

Earth’s Shepherd, Lord, and King. 5. Jesu, the everlasting Son,
Tó Thee all glory be;
Through all eternity. Amen.
"n sing unto the Lord a new song; for He hath done marvellous things "-Ps xcviii. 1. 16 HIGH let us swell our tuneful notes,
And join th' angelic throng;
To wake a joyful song.

With light and life from heav'n.

" To us a Child is born !"
In highest worlds be paid ;
And in our lives display'd! Ainen.

Watching o'er your flocks by night!
Come and worship,
Watching long in hope and fear :
Comé and worship,
“He came unto His own, and His own received Him not." -S. John, i. 11. 18 O SAVIOUR, Whom this holy morn
Gave to our world below;
And more than mortal woe!
By each temptation tried;
And to redeem us died !
3. If gaily clothed and richly fed,
In dangerous wealth we dwell,
And lowly cottage cell.
In anxious want we pine,
How poor a lot was Thine ! 5. Throughout this changeful earthly scene,
From sin preserve us free;
May we rejoice with Thee ! 6. All glory to the Three in One,
The God of joy and peace,
And bids their sorrows cease. Amen.

Wash our stain of guilt away !
Fill’d his heart with strength and love;
