Church of $. Mary Magdalene,
MUNSTER SQUARE, REGENT'S PARK.
Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord."-PSALM 150.
147, d. 124.
The parts of Divine Service specially appointed to be sung by the Church of England are—the Psalms for the day, including the · Venite' and Easter Anthem at Morning Prayer,—the Hymns after the first and second lessons,—the three Creeds,the Anthem after the third Collect,—the Litany, and the
Sanctus' and · Gloria in excelsis' in the Communion Service.
As full liberty seems to be left in the choice of Anthems, some of the most generally received Metrical Hymns have been collected to serve for this purpose ;—the words and the music of many of them are very beautiful, and their use seems to be sufficiently sanctioned by the Church.

Robed in dreadful majesty ;

Yea, Amen! let all adore Thee,
High on Thine eternal throne ;
Claim the kingdom for Thine own. Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Amen.
