5 Who doth preserve our life and health,
Our ease and safe abode ?
Still his name by you be praised, Who are seed to Abra'm raised, Spread his acts in ev'ry nation,
Who doth secure our peace and wealth? Give him praises, give him thanks and
Our ever gracious God.
6 On thee, almighty Lord of hosts,
7 Thy chastisements are nought but love;
8 Thou count'st thy children's sighs
And know'st well why they mourn, No tear too mean to thee appears To put into thy urn.
9 Thou, when we are oppress'd with grief,
Dost us with pity view, Administ'ring thy kind relief, And lasting comfort too.
10 Why need we mourn, as in despair, And grieve both day and night? On him we'll cast our ev'ry care, Who gave us life and light. 11 Hath he not, from our earliest days, Us nourish'd and maintain'd? Safe guarded us in all our ways,
In dangers prov'd our Friend? 12 God never yet mistakes hath made In his vast government ; No, what he doth permit or aid
Is blest in the event.
13 Then murmur not, but be resign'd
557.* T. 277. Now unite to render praises ToJehovah, to our God, and magnify His great name in all your places, Yehis people, ye who are his property; For his goodness, love and favor To his children last for ever; He is full of truth and grace, Pard'ning all our trespasses;
3 To the throne go undismayed, Go with boldness, and approach the mercy-seat,
Since from God in Christ displayed, Nought but goodness, grace and favor you can meet;
Full of love, he longs to bless us,
2 God reveals his presence,
Whom th' angelic legions
Sing the hosts of heaven;
3 O majestic Being!
THOU, Jesus, art our King! Thy ceaseless praise we sing: Praise shall our glad tongues employ, Praise o'erflow the grateful soul, While we vital breath enjoy, While eternal ages roll.
2 Thou art th' eternal Light, And shin'st in deepest night: Wond'ring gaz'd th' angelic train, While thou bow'dst the heav'ns be neath,
Taking thy abode with man,
Man to save from endless death.
3 Thou for our griefs didst mourn, Thou hast our sickness borne: All our sins on thee were laid;
Thou with unexampled grace All the mighty debt hast paid, Due from Adam's helpless race. 4 Thou hast o'erthrown the foe; God's kingdom fix'd below: Conqu'ror of all adverse pow'r, Thou heav'n's gates hast open'd wide, Thou thine own dost lead secure, And to life eternal guide. 5 Above the starry sky Thou reign'st enthron'd on high! Prostrate at thy feet we fall:
Pow'r supreme to thee is giv'n, As the righteous Judge of all, Sons of earth and hosts of heav'n,
6 The mighty seraphs join, And in thy praise combine; All their choirs thy glories sing,
Who shall dare with thee to vie, Mighty Lord, eternal King,
Sov'reign both of earth and sky!
7 The church thro' all her bounds With thy high praise resounds: The confessors fearless here Boldly praise their heav'nly King; Children's feebler voices there
To thy name hosannas sing.
8 'Midst danger's blackest frown, Thee hosts of martyrs own: Pain and shame alike they dare, Firmly trusting in their God; Glorying thy cross to bear, Sealing thus their faith with blood.
9 Arise, exert thy pow'r Thou glorious Conqueror! Help us to obtain the prize,
Help us well to close our race; That with thee, above the skies, Endless joys we may possess.
They join with us his goodness to rehearse,
His glorious name be prais'd throughout the universe!
Now let us praise the Lord
2 O gracious God, bestow
Thy peace be ever reigning: Preserve us in true faith
And christian holiness:
ALMIGHTY Lord! :||:
By whom : the worlds were made,
So sure's thy blood
Till death shall be no more. :||:
Heb. i. 2.
2 The Lamb was slain! both day and night
Th' angelic choirs his praises sing; To him enthron'd above all height, Heav'n's hosts celestial anthems bring;
While here poor sinners join the song, And praise him with a stamm'ring tongue.
3 Gladly our own poor works we leave, For him despise, wealth, pleasure, fame,
To him our souls and bodies give,
His death doth our affections claim : Henceforth we own him as our Lord, His name be by us all ador❜d.
4 Thro' him alone we live, for he Hath drowned our transgressions all In love's unfathomable sea;
Fall prostrate, lost in wonder fall, Ye sinners, for the Lamb was slain, Who dy'd that we might life regain.
565. T. 159.
ADORED be the Lamb of God,
To God, by his most precious blood,
All praise be given to him, that we
To Jesus who us bought,
3 Meanwhile his promises we trust, And join our grateful lays, In concert with the ransom'd host,
To sing redeeming grace. While they who round his throneappear The wonders of his love declare, And sing, "The Lamb for us was slain"; Our hearts reply, Amen!
566. T. 132.
SING praises unto God on high
To him who us created;
To sinful man related.
And gracious Meditator. 2 He calls us brethren, not asham'd To bear our human nature!
Yea, heirs of life we now are nam'd,
Joint heirs with our Creator! He ever lives our cause to plead, Grants help in ev'ry time of need, Praise to his name for ever!
567. T. 39.
YE servants of God, your great Master proclaim,
And publish abroad his most excellent
The name all victorious of Jesus extol,
We thy little flock adore
Till we join the choirs above!
5.69. T. 22.
His kingdom is glorious, He rules over BLESS, O my soul, the God of grace!
His favours claim thy highest praise;
2 'Twas he, my soul, that sent his
To die for crimes which thou hast
The hourly follies of our lives.
3 Our youth decay'd his pow'r re-
His mercy crowns our growing years; He satisfies our souls with good, pro-And filleth us with heav'nly food.
Fall down on their faces, and worship
