PREFACE. 



kT the churches of Christ arc indebted to the labours 
Rev. Dr. WatU; for a very large portion of the valu- 
van]^elic.al and lyric poetry in the English language, 
'oposition which few will be disposed to doubt To 
wcet singer in Israel, millions now in glory, and 
ns still on earth, have been, and are yet, under last- 
blig.itions for the spiritual edification which they 
derived from his incomparable Psalms and Hymns, 
irobably no exaggeration to say, that the inspirations 
» pious muse will continue to direct and to animate 
ruis of men, until the devotions of the church mili- 
ihail be superseded by the exalted harmony of the 
* temple. 

s due to the Rev. Dr. Rippon to state, that the util- 
' Dr. Watts^s Psalms and Hymns has been greatly 
otc'd by his arrangement ; and also by the enlarging 
erfecting the various T'ables and Indexes. These, 
ev came from the hand of Dr. Watts, were so ex- 
[)gly deficient, that they must have continued com- 
vely useless, but for the skill and industry of Dr. 
>n. To the sacred poetry of Dr. Watts, Dr. Rippon 
ided an invaluable collection of nearly six hundred 
s.s, more than fwo hundred of which were com- 

by himself. Dr. John Ryland, or other eminent 
)er8 of the Baptist denomination. For a more am- 
crount of his labours in this department, the reader 
?rre*l to the Prefaces of former editions, in lieu 
lich, this condensed statement is intended to be an 
mical substitute. 

the instance of the present editor, the former pub- 
introduced a variety of improvements into the last 
n, some of which were, incorporating the duplicate 
'es of First Lines; of General Contents; of Scrip- 
and of Subjects, which were inconveniently scat- 
through the volume, into one complete set for the 

book. The following are some of the additional 
lations, which, it is believed, will render the present 
I increasingly valuable. 

3 



1. The number of the pa,ge has been restored to its : 
propriate place at the top of the page. The numbets 
the Psalms and Hymns continue unaltered. 

2. The confusion of numbers at the top of the pa 
particularly in Rippon's Selection, is prevented, by on 
ling the numbers on the inner margin. 

.3. Numerous typographical and grammatical errors i 
misprints in the Tables and Indexes have been correct 
and about forty paqes, embracing duplicate Tables, '. 
dexes, unnecessary Prefaces, &c. have been omitted in i 
former and present editions. This, in the thousands 
copies which will probably be circulated, is an import 
item of economy, while it will render the work mi 
simple, and therefore more useful. 

4. The Table of Psalms has been placed before the ' 
ble of Hymns as the moat appropriate position, and 1 
Index of Scriptures and Index of Subjects are put 

juxtaposition with the Table of First Lines, Table 
Scriptures, and Table of Psalms and Hymns, at the co 
mcncement of the volume. 

5. Nine Hymns, which, in former editions, have b( 
repeated in different parts of the book, are here omitt 
and other evangelical hymns, from approved authors, hi

1 T ET all the earth their voices raise 

JLi To sing the choicest psalm of praisei 

To sing and bless Jehovah's name ; 
His glory let the heathens know, 
His wonders to the nations show, 
And all his saving works proclaim. 

2 The heathens know thy glory, Lord : 
The wonderinff nations read tkv word, 

But here Jehovah's name is known : 
Our worship shaU no more be paid 
To gods which mortal hands have made; 

Our Maker is our Grod alone. 

3 He fram'd the globe, he built the sky. 
He made the shining W9rlds on high, 

And reigns complete in glprv there ; 
His beams are majesty andli^nt; 
His beauties how divmelv bright ! 

His temple how divinely fair ! 

4 Come the ^eat day, the glorious hour. 
When earth shall feel his saving power, 

And barbarous nations fear his name ; 
Then shall the race of man confess 
The beauty of his hpUness, 

And in nis courts his grace proclaim.

And everv setting sun shall see 
New works of duty done for thee.

Jenovah fiU'd his throne; 
Or AdEun form'd, or angels made, 
The Maker liv'd alone. 

3 His boundless years can ne'er decrease, 

But stQl maintain their prime ; 
Eternity's his dwelling place. 
And ever is his time. 

4 While like a tide our minutes flow. 

The present and the past, 
He fills nis own immortal norr. 
And sees our ages waste. 

5 The sea and sky must 'perish too. 

And vast destruction come! 

The creatures — look, how old they grow. 
And wait their fiery doom ! 

6 Well, let the sea shrink aU away, 

And flames melt down the skies, 
My God shall live an endless day, 
When th* old creation dies.

This wide creation rose at his command, 
Built by his word, and stablish'd by his hand : 
Long stood his throne ere he began creation,

2 God is th' eternal King : Thy foes in vain 
Raise their rebellion to confound thv reign :

Bow at his footstool, and with rear adore him.

Tlieir flesh looks fall and fair, 

Their wealth rolls in like flowing seaa. 
And grows without their care. 
i Free from the plagues and pains 
That pious souls endure, 
Through all their life oppression reigns, 
And racks the humble poor. 

5 Their impious tongues blaspheme 
The everlasting God ; 

Their mfdice blasts the good man's name, 
And spreads their lies abroad.

Indulg'd my doubts to rise ; 

'Is there a God that sees or hears 
'The things below the skies?'

Breaks from the chambers of the east, 

Rolls round, and makes the earth rejoice.

Hear, Lord, and grant me quick relief,

Nor from thy law my feet depart. 

2 I hate to walk, I hate to sit, 
With men of vanity and lies ; 
The scoffer and the hypocrite 

Are the abhorrence oi mine eyes. ' 

3 Amongst thy saints will I appear, 
With hands well wash'd in innocence; 
But when I stand before thy bar, 
The blood of Christ is my defence. 

4 I love thy habitation, Lord, 

The temple where thine honours dwell; 
There shall I hear thine holy word. 
And there thy works of wonder tell. 

5 Let not my soul be join'd at last 
With men of treachery and blood, 
Since I my days on earth have past 
Among the saints, and near my God. 




FAMILY WORSHIP. 8M 

I'll purge my family around, 

And make the wicked flee : 
So shall my house be ever found 

A dwelling fit for thee.

of Life. 

FGrod succeed not, all the cost 
And pains to build the house are lost: 
If Grod the city will not keep, 
The watchful guards as well may sleep. 

What if YOU rise before the sun, 
And work and toil when day is done» 
Careful and sparing eat your bread 
To shun that poverty you dread; 

'Tis all in vain, till Grod hath blest; 
He can make rich, vet give us rest: 
Children and friends are blessings too, 
If Grod our sovereign make them so. 

Happy the man to whom he sends 
Obeoient children^ faithful friends : 
How sweet our daily comforts prove. 
When they are season'd with his love! ' 

U Psalm 187. C. M. 

• GodaUinaU. 

rGrod to build the house deny, 
Xl^e builders work in vain; 
And towns without his wakefrd eye» 
A useless watch maintain. 

Before the morning beams arise. 

Your painful work renew. 
And t|U the stars ascend the skies, 

Your tiresome toU pursue. 

Short be your sleep, and coarse your fan\ 

In vain, till God nas blest; 
But if his smiles attend your care, 

You shall have food and rest. 

Nor children, relatives, nor friends, 
ShaU real blessing prove. 

Nor all tbe earthly joys he sends 
K sent without his love.

He gives me strength for days to come.

Peace is the pillow for my head. 
While well-apoointed angels keep 
Their watchful stations round my bed,

Tell me a thousand frightful thinss, 
My Grod in safety makes me dwell 
Beneath the shadow of his wings.

1 T|EATH! 'tis a melancholy day 
if To those that have no God, 
When the poor soul is forc'd away 

To seek her last abode. 

2 In vain to heaven she lifts her eyes, 

But guih, a heavy chain. 
Still drags her downward from the skies 
To darkness, fire, and pain. , . 

3 Awake, and mourn, ye heirs of hell, ^ 

Let stubborn sinners fear; ^ 

You must be driv'n from earth, and dvell 
A long for ever there. 

4 See how the pit gapes wide for you, 

And flashes in your face, 
And thou, my soul, look downward tOCk, ,,. 
And sing recovering grace. 

5 Hejs a God of sovereign love .K,\^ 



That promis'd heaven to me, 
And taught my thoughts to soar aboYS, 
Where happy spirits be.

PAUSE. 

5 Death, like an overflowing stream 
Sweeps us away ; our life s a dream, 
An empty tale ; a morning flower, 
Cut down and withered in an hour,] 

6 [Our age to seventy years is set : 

How snort the term ! how frail the state ! 

And if to eighty we arrive, 

We rather sigh and groan than live.] 

7 But O how oft thy wrath appears. 
Ana cuts off our expected years ! 
Thy wrath awakes our humble dread ; 
We fear the power that strikes us drad. 

8 Teach us. O Lord, how frail is man; 
And kindly lengthen out our span, 
Till a wise care of piety 

Fit us to die, and dwell with thee.

And neyer-witnering flowers : 
Death, like a narrow sea, divides 
This heavenly land from ours.

Stand dress'd in living green : 
So to the Jews old Canaan stood, 
While Jordan rolVd between.

To cross this narrow sea. 
And linffer, shivering, on the brink,

And see the Canaan that we love, 
With unbeclouded eyes ;

Not Jordan's stream nor death's cold flood 
Should fright us from the shore.

Fright our approaching souls away : 
Still we shrink back again to life, 
Fond of our prison and our clay. 

3 O, if my Lord would come and meet. 

My soul should stretch her wings in naste, 
Fly fearless through death's iron gate. 
Nor feel the terrors as she past.

Feel soft as downy pillars are, 
While on his breast I lean my head. 
And breathe my life out sweetly there.

Tlieir bodies to the tomb?

Where should the dying members reat^ 
But with their dying Head?

And show'd our feet the way; 
Up to the Lord our souls shall fly 
At the great rising-day.

And with the day his voice expires. 
The moon and stars adopt the song. 
And through the night tne praise prolong. 

5 The listening earth with rapture hears 
The harmonious music of the spheres; 
And all her tribes the notes repeat, 
That God is wise, and good, and great.

No less than the blood of his Son.

^ Sweet truth, and easy to repeat ! 

But when mv faith is sharply tried, 

I find myself a learner yet, — 

Unskilful, weak, and apt to slide. 
6 But, O my Lord, one look from thee 

Subdues the disobedient will ; 

Drives doubt and discontent away, 

And thy rebellious worm is still. 
6 Thou art as ready to forgive 

As I am ready to repine ; 

Thou, therefore, all the praise receive ; 

Be shame and self-abhorrence mine.

Vr Jesus, thy love exceeds the rest ! — 
Love, the best blessing here below. 
The nearest image of the blest. 

2 While we are held in thy embrace. 
There's not a thought attempts to rove ; 
Each smile upon tny beauteous face 
Fixes, and charms, and fires our love. 

3 While of thy absence we complain, 
And long or weep in all we do, 
There's a strange pleasure in the pain ; 
And tears have their own sweetness too. 

4 When round thy courts bv day we rove; 
Or ask the watchmen of the night 

For some kind tidings of our Love, 
Thy very name creates delight. 

6 Jesus, our God, yet rather come ! 

Our eyes would dwell upon thy face :— 
'Tis best to see our Lord at home. 
And feel the presence of his grace.

But we shall still be join'd in heart,

While each in expectation lives,

1 TESUS, let thy pitying eye. 

tJ Call back a wandering sheep ; 
False to thee, like Peter, I 

Would fain like Peter weep ; 
Let me be by grace restored, 

On me be all its freeness shown ; 
Turn, and look upon me, Lord, 

And break my iieart of stone. 

2 Saviour, Prince, enthron'd above, 

Repentance to impart, 
Give me, through thy dving love, 

The humble contrite heart ; 
Give, what I have long implord, 

A portion of thy love unknown ; 
Turn, and look upon me. Lord, 

And break my neart of stone. 

3 See me. Saviour, from above. 

Nor suffer me to die ; 
Life, and happiness, and love. 

Smile in thy gracious eye : 
Speak the reconciling word. 

And let thy mercy melt me down; 
Turn, and look upon me, Lord, 

And break my neart of stone. 

4 Look, as when thy pityinff eye 

Was clos'd that we might live ; 
* Father, (at the point to die 

Mv Saviour gasp'd,) forgive!' 
Surely with that dying word. 

He turns, and looks, and cries, ' 'Tit don 
O my loving, bleeding Lord, 

This breaks my heart of stone.

3 But why does that celestial flower 
Open and thrive and shine no more? 
Where are its balmy odours fled ? 
And why reclines its beauteous head ? 

4 Too plain, alas ! the languor shows 
Th' unkindly soil in which it grows ; 
Where the black frost and beating storm 
Wither and rend its tender form ? 

6 Unchanging Sun, thy beams display 
To drive the frost and storms away ; 
Make all thy potent virtues known 
To cheer a plant so much thy own. 

6 And thou, bless'd Spirit, deign to blow

So shall they grow, and breathe abroaa

With heavenly lustre shine : 
Before the throne of God appear.

T f In coming to a mercy-seat ! 
Yet who that knows the worth of prayer

tl Beholds thy wondrous sacrifice, 
Love rises to an ardent flame, 

And we all other hope disclaim. 

2 With cold affections, who can see 

The thorns, the scourge, the nails, the tree, 
Thy flowing tears, and purple sweat, 
Thy bleeding hands, and head, and feet. 

3 Look, saints, into his opening side— 

The breach, how large, how deep, how wide ! 
Thence issues forth a double flood 
Of cleansing water, pard'ning blood. 

4 Hence, O my soul, a balsam flows 

To heal thy wounds, and cure thy woes ; 
Immortal joys come streaming down, 
Joys, Ukehis griefs, immense, unknown.

The sufferings of my heavenlv King: 
With growing pleasures spread abroia

As dwells in this much-fiiTourd land ? 
Here plenty reigns ; here freedom sheds 
Her cboiccMt blmsings on our heads : 

By God supported still we stand. 

8 Here commerce spreads the wealthy stoie^ 

Which comes from every foreign shore; 

Science and art their charms display ; 
Religion teacheth us to raise 
Our voices in our Maker's praise, 

As truth and conscience point the way. 

3 These are thy gifts, Almighty King ! 
From thee our matchless blessings spring; 

Th' extended shade, the fruitful skies, 
The raptures liberty bestows. 
The eternal joys the gospel shows, 

All from thy boundless goodness rise. 

4 With grateful hearts, with cheerful tongues, 
To God we raise united songs; 

His power and mercy we proclaim ; 
And still, through ev'ry age shall own, 
Jeborah nere hath fix'd his throne, 

And triumph in his mighty name. 
& Long as the moon her course shall run, 
Or man behold the circling sun, 

May'st thou o'er fair Columbia reign ; 
Still crown her counsels with success, 
With peace and joy her borders bless, 

And all her saci^d rights maintain.

Fly to the shelter of his cross, 
And find salvation there. 

7 So shall that curse remove. 
By which the Saviour bled ; 

And the last awful day shall pour 
His blessings on your head.

Before the bright angelic hosts. 

Makes his last sentence known. 

2 When sinners, cursed from his face, 

To raging flames are driven ; 
His voice, with melody divine, 
Thus calls his saints to heaven : 

3 ' Bless' d of my Father, all draw near, 

' Receive the great reward ; 
' And rise, with raptures, to possess 
' The kingdom love prepared. 

4 * Ere earth's foundations first were laid,

' And rear'd those palaces divine 
* To which you now are brought

Array'd in robes of light.

His eyes a fiery flame, 
A radiant crown adorns his brow, 
And Jesus is his name.

And scars his victories tell ; 
Lo ! in his hand the Conqueror bears 
The keys of death and nell.

Sweet fields array'd in living green, 
And rivers of delight ! 

3 There generous fruits that never fail, 

On trees immortal grow : 
There rocks, and hills, and brooka, and vales. 
With milk and honey flow.

Shines one eternal day ; 
There God the Sun for ever reigns. 
And scatters night away.

Sickness and sorrow, pain and death, 
Are felt and fear'd no more.

And be for ever blest ? 
When shall I see my Father's fiice.

To boundless rapture while they gaze : 
Ten thousand thousand joyful tongues 
Resound his everlasting praise. 

5 There all the favourites of the Lamb 
Shall join at last the heavenly choir : 
O may the joy-inspiring theme 
Awake our faith and warm desire ! 

6 Dear Saviour ! let thy Soirit seal 
Out interest in that blissful place ; 
Till death remove this mortal veil, 
And we behold thy lovely face.

JCi Tis time I lift mine eyes 
Upward, dear Father, to thy throne, 

And to my native skies. 

2 There the blest man, my Saviour, sits ; 

The God ! how brieht he shines! 
And scatters infinite delights 
On all the happy minds. 

3 Seraphs, with elevated strains. 

Circle the throne around ; 
And move and charm the starry plains 
With an immortal sound.

Jesus, my love, they sing ! 
Jesus, the life of both our joys, 
Sounds sweet from every string. 

5 [Hark, how beyond the narrow bounds 

Of time and space they run ; 
And echo, in majestic sounds, 
The Godhead of the Son! 

6 And now they sink the loftv tune, 

And gentler notes they play ; 
And bring the Father's Equal down 
To dwell in humble clay.

His flesh all pure, without ^ %\»^ti^ 
His soul without a siu.
