PRAISE

Thou who, on man’s transgressing Thy
command, and falling,
didst not pass him by, nor leave him,
God of goodness;
but didst visit in ways manifold,
as a tender Father,
supplying him with Thy great and
precious promise,
concerning the Life‑giving Seed,
opening to him the door of faith,
and of repentance unto life,
and in fulness of the times,
sending Thy Christ Himself
to take on Him the seed of Abraham;
and, in the oblation of His life,
to fulfil the Law’s obedience;
and, in the sacrifice of His death,
to take off the Law’s curse;
114and, in His death,
to redeem the world;
and, in His resurrection,
to quicken it:—
O Thou, who doest all things,
whereby to bring again our race to Thee,
that it may be partaker
of Thy divine nature and eternal glory;
who hast borne witness
to the truth of Thy gospel
by many and various wonders,
in the ever-memorable converse of Thy
saints,
in their supernatural endurance
of torments;
in the overwhelming conversion
of all lands
to the obedience of faith,
without might, or persuasion; or
compulsion:—
Blessed be Thy Name,
and praised and celebrated,
and magnified, and high exalted,
and glorified, and hallowed;
its record, and its memory,
an d every memorial of it,
both now and for evermore.
115Worthy art Thou to take the book,
and to open the seals thereof,
for Thou wast slain,
and hast redeemed us to God
by Thy blood,
out of every kindred and tongue,
and people, and nation.
Worthy is the Lamb that was slain
to receive the power,
and riches, and wisdom,
and strength, and honour,
and glory, and blessing.
To Him that sitteth upon the Throne,
and to the Lamb,
be the blessing, and the honour,
and the glory, and the might,
forever and ever. Amen.
Salvation to our God, which sitteth
upon the throne,
and to the Lamb.
Amen. The blessing and the glory
and the wisdom,
and the thanksgiving and the honour,
and the power and the strength,
be unto our God,
for ever and ever,
Amen.
