"Mercy and justice are the names,
2 "Ye dying souls, that sit
Their thankful tongues shall own,Our righteousness and strength is found In thee, the Lord, alone.
4 In thee shall Israel trust,
And see their guilt forgiven:
Almighty Power and Majesty of God. 1 THE Lord, our God, is full of might, The winds obey his will;
He speaks, and, in his heavenly height,
2 Rebel, ye waves! and o'er the land
3 Howl, winds of night! your force combine; Without his high behest,
Ye shall not, in the mountain-pine;
4 His voice sublime is heard afar,
He yokes the whirlwind to his car;
5 Ye nations! bend-in reverence bend;
God, holy, just, and sovereign.
1 HOW should the sons of Adam's race Be pure before their God?
If he contend in righteousness,
We fall beneath his rod. 2 Strong is his arm, his heart is wise
; What vain presumers dare, Against their Maker's hand to rise,
Or tempt th' unequal war ?
From their old seats are torn;
And all her pillars mourn.
Th' obedient sun forbears:
And seals up all the stars.
Flies on the stormy wind:
Or his dark footsteps find.
His wonders to perform;
And rides upon the storm. 2 Deep, in unfathomable mines
Of never-failing skill,
And works his sovereign will.
The clouds ye so much dread
In blessings on your head.
But trust him for his grace ;
He hides a smiling face.
Unfolding every hour ;
But sweet will be the flower.
6 Blind unbelief is sure to err,
1 COME, ye that know and fear the Lord! And raise your soul above;
Let every heart and voice accord,
2 This precious truth his word declares,
3 Behold his loving-kindness waits, For those who from him rove,
And calls of mercy reach their hearts,
4 The work begun is carried on,
By power from heaven above;
5 Oh! may we all, while here below,
The Sovereignty of God.
1 THY way, O God! is in the sea; Thy paths I cannot trace,
Nor comprehend the mystery
2 Here the dark veils of flesh and sense
3 As, through a glass, I dimly see
i 4 Though but in part I know thy will,
I bless thee for the sight:
In glory's clearer light?
Thy providence and grace;
Universal Praise to God. 1 SONGS of praise the angels sang,
Heaven with hallelujahs rang,
When he spake, and it was done. 2 Songs of praise awoke the morn,
When the Prince of peace was born;
Captive led captivity.
Songs of praise shall crown that day:
Songs of praise shall hail their birth. 4 And shall man alone be dumb,
Till that glorious morning come?
Psalms, and hymns, and songs of praise. 5 Saints below, with heart and voice,
Still in songs of praise rejoice,
Songs of praise to sing above.
Songs of praise shall conquer death;

A faithful God. 1 BEGIN, my tongue! some heavenly themes
And speak some boundless thing,
or our eternal King.
2 Ten of his wondrous faithfulness,
And sound his power abroad;
And the performing God.
For wretched, dying men;"
With an immortal pen.
The mighty promise shines,
Those everlasting lines.
As that which built the skies:
Speaks all the promises.
But whisper,-- Thou art mine;"! Those gentle words should raise my songs To notes almost divine.
Praises to our God belong :
Praises to the heavenly King. 2 Blessings from his liberal hand
Flow around this happy land :
Peace and freedom we enjoy.
May we cheerfully obey,
Ever own and worship God.
Prajses to the King of kings;
C. M. 59.
Endless Praise. 1 YES–I will bless thee, O my God! Through all my mortal days,
