HYMN 2. C. M.
Eph. ii. 18.
And bid us rebels live.
Who makes thine anger cease ; Our lives he ransom'd with his own,
And dy'd to make our peace. 3 To the Almighty Spirit be
Immortal glory gir'n,
And trains is up for heaven.
Adore th' eternal God;
Through nations far abroad.
One general song to raise ;
HYMN 3. L. M.
LA All powerful, wise, and good, and just,
Or form'd the varied face of earth,
HYMN 4. C. M.
The Infinite God.
i Great everlasting one! Boundless thy might and majesty,
And unconfio'd thy throne ! 2 Thy glories shine, of wondrous size,
And wond'rous large thy grace ; Immortal day breaks from thine eyes,
And Gabriel veils his face. 3 Thine essence is a vast abyss,
Which angels cannot sound, An ocean of infinities,
Where all our thoughts are drown'd. 4 The myst'ries of creation lie
Beneath enlighten'd minds; Thoughts can ascend above the sky,
And fly before the winds.
5 Reason may grasp the massy hills,
And stretch from pole to pole ; But half thy name our spirit fills,
And overloads the soul. 6 In vain our haughty reason swells ;
For nothing's found in thee But boundless inconceivables, And vast eternity.
HYMN 5. C. M.
The Omnipresence and Omniscience of God.
A Surveyest all my powers;
By thee my resting hours. 2 My thoughts, scarce springing into birth,
Great God, are known to thee; Abroad, at home, still I'm inclos'd
With thine immensity.
In open view appear;
Without thy list'ning ear.
Before me shines thy name ; And 'tis thy strong, almighty hand
Sustains my tender fraine.
Of my astonish'd mind;
Its towering summit find.
: HYMN 6. C. M.
God's Dominion and Decrees.
And wait your Maker's nod;
The honors of her God. 2 Life, death, and hell, and worlds unknown,
Hang on his firm decree ;
Nor borrows leave to be.
With all the fates of men,
Drawn by th' eternal pen.
And makes his counsels shine ; Each op'ning leaf, and ev'ry stroke,
Fulfils some deep design.
To sceptres and a crown:
And treads the monarch down.
Nor God, the reason gives; Nor dares the fav’rite angel pry
Between the folded leaves.
My fate with curious eyes,
Or what bright scenes may rise.
Oh, may I find my name, Recorded in some humble place,
Beneath my Lord, the Lamb-,

The unsearchable Wisdom of God.
Tumultuous passions, all be still!
