A SECOND HYMN FOR THE KIRK.

1 BE Heaven's almighty King adored,
2 Of all good things the Giver!
3 Sing Halleluja to the Lord
4 For ever, and for ever!
5 Let closed lips, moved at the word,
6 With glowing accents sever!
7 O Halleluja to the Lord
8 For ever, and for ever!
9 Can other strains such sounds afford,
10 Of extacy? O never!
11 Sing Halleluja to the Lord
12 For ever, and for ever!
