But makes his church his blest abode,
Where we his awful glories sing. 6. We see no terrors in his name,
But in our God, a father find.
HYMN 35. c. M.
LMIGHTY God, thy pow'rful word
From nothing all things brought; Earth, seas, and skies, by thee their Lord,
With skill divine were wrought. 2. Thy pleasure heav'nly hosts fulfil;
For thee each planet rolls;
Thy nod the world controls.
All else from thee derive.
Or independent live.
To thee, our all resiga.
HYMN 36. C. M. 1.
'TWAS God who hurl?d the rolling spheres, Who form’d the plan of endless years,
And bade the ages rise.
Immense and unconfind:
And rides upon the wind.
Loud thunders round him roar; All heav'n attends him, as he flies;
And hell proclaims his pow'r. 4. He scatters nations with his breath ;
The scatter'd nations fy;
Blue pestilence and wasting death
Confess the Godhead nigh.
Fulfil his high command ;
HYMN 37. L.-M.
God omni present and omnisciunt. 1. LORD, thou hast search?d and seen me through ;
, My rising and my resting hours,
My heart and flesh, with all their pow'rs.' 2. Could I so false, so faithless prove,
To quit thy seşvice and thy love;
Or from thy dreadful glory run ? 3. If, mounted on a morning ray,
I fly beyond the western sea ;
And there arrest thy fugitive.
Beneath the spreading veil of night;
Would kindle darkness into day.
Through midnight shades, as blazing noon. 6. O may these thoughts possess my breast,
Where'er I rove, where'er I rest!
HYMN 38. C. M. 1. LORD, all
I am is known to thee !
T'he notice of thine eye.
My rising and my rest,
My public walks, my private ways,
And secrets of my breast.
Before they're form’d within ;
Thou knowost the sense I mean, 4. O wondrous knowledge, deep and high!
Where can a creature hide ?
Beset on ev'ry side.
And like a bulwark prove,
HYMN 39. s. M.
By thee are search'd and seen ;
My secret thoughts within. 2. No spot the realms of space,
Whence thou art absent, know.
A righteous Judge below. 3. Lord ! if within my heart
Thou aught should'st disapprove:
And by thy grace remove. 4. If e'er I've been perverse
Or foolish in thy view :
HYMN 40. c. M. 1. To thee, my God! my days are known;
My soul enjoys the thought.
Nor are my wants forgot.
And all my walks of daily life
Before thine eye appear. 3. The vacant hour, the active scene,
Thy mercy shall approve; And ev'ry pang
Is gilded by thy rays;
A present God surveys.
And in thy view 1 die.
HYMN 41. c. M.
God's Wisdom. 1. SONGS of immortal praise belong, He hath my heart, and he my tongue,
To spread his name abroad. 2. How great the works his hand hath wrought!
How glorious in our sight!
His wonders with delight.
How wise th’ eternal mind !
That his first thoughts design'd.
He fix'd his cov’nant sure :
Thy heav'nly skill proclaim, What shall we do to make us wise,
But learn to read thy name?
Is our divinest skill;
Who best obeys thy will.
HYMN 42. c. M.
My complicated frame,
My great Creator's name.
Did ev'ry member write;
My eyes beheld the light.
In cireling streams to flow; And sent the genial heat around
Through ev'ry part to glow. 4. Why was my body formd erect,
Whilst brutes bow down to earth? But that my soul should learn to know,
And elaim it's nobler birth. 5. Author of life! my tongue shall sing
The wonders of my frame. Long as I breathe, and think and speak, I'll praise thy glorious name.
HYMN 43. c. M.
God holy and just.
Of our eternal King.
Thrice holy, let us sing. 2. Holy is he in all his works,
And saints are his delight;
Are hateful in his sight.
Pay, O my soul, to God;
To his sublime abode. 4. Thou, righteous God! preserve my mind
From all pollution free;
That I thy face may see.
