2 He who can shake the worlds He made,
Or with His word, or with His rod,
How condescending is our God! 3 He over-rules all mortal things,
And manages our mean affairs;
Bestows His counsels and His cares. 4 Our sorrows and our tears we pour
Into the bosom of our God;
And helps us bear the heavy load. 5 O could our thankful hearts devise
A tribute equal to Thy grace, Tothethird heaven our songs should rise, And teach the golden harps Thy praise.
C.M. 5 He is faithful that promised.—Heb.
10, 23. 1 BEGIN, my tongue, some heavenly
theme And speak some boundless thing; The mighty works, the mightier name,
Of our eternal King. 2 Tell of His wondrous faithfulness,
And sound His power abroad; Sing the sweet promise of His grace,
And the performing God.
Hor wretched dying men:
With an immortal pen.
The mighty promise shines,
Those everlasting lines.
As that which built the skies; The voice that rolls the stars along
Speaks all the promises. 6 O might I hear Thy heavenly tongue
But whisper, "Thou art mine!" Those gentle words should raise my song
To notes almost divine.
C.M. 6 One generation shall praise Thy works
to another.-Ps. 145, 4.
My , my ;
In the bright world above.
And let His praise be great;
Thy works of grace repeat.
And while my lips rejoice,
Shall join their cheerful voice.
And children learn Thy ways; Ages to come Thy truth proclaim,
And nations sound Thy praise. 5 Thy glorious deeds of ancient date
Shall through the world be known; Thine arm of power, Thy heavenly
Thy saints are ruled by love;
L.M. 7 I will praise Thy name for ever and
ever.-Ps. 145, 2. 1 My ,
Shall fill the remnant of my days;
New works of duty done for Thee.
Thy bounty flows an endless stream;
4 Let distant times and nations raise
The long succession of Thy praise;
The joyful labour of their tongue. 5 But who can speak Thy wondrous deeds?
Thy greatness all our thoughts exceeds!
L.M. 8 His mercy endureth for ever. - Ps,
138, 1. I
Mercy and truth are all His ways: Wonders of grace to God belong,
Repeat His mercies in your song.
The King of kings with glory crown:
When lords and kings are known no 3 He built the earth, He spread the sky,
And fixed the starry lights on high:
He bids the moon direct the night:
And brought them to the promised land; Wonders of grace to God belong,
Repeat His mercies in your song. 6 He saw the Gentiles dead in sin,
And felt His pity move within:
When death and sin shall reign nomore. 7 He sent His Son with power to save
From guilt, and darkness, and the grave; Wonders of grace to God belong,
Repeat His mercies in your song. 8 Thro' this vain world He guides our feet,
And leads us to His heavenly seat;
188.8.131.52. 9 They which are of faith, the same are
the children of Abraham.--Gal. 3, 7. 1 TIF THE God of Abraham praise,
Who reigns enthroned above;
And God of love.
By earth and heaven confest :
For ever blest.
At whose supreme command
At His right hand.
Its wisdom, fame, and power ;
Our shield and tower.
Whose all-sufficient grace
To see His face.
He is our gracious God;
Through Jesus' blood.
We on His oath depend, -
To heaven ascend ;
We shall His power adore,
Give thanks to God on high :
They ever cry.
We join the heavenly lays,
His endless praise.
C.M. 10 How excellent is Thy loving-kina
, O , 7.:
Our God is very kind;
With a believing mind.
Our God is very high;
And have security.
As all the ages tell;
That all He does is well.
Thereby to work and live; And He shall be to us a rest
When evening hours arrive,
11 Thou art the same, and Thy, years
shall have no end.-Ps. 102, 27. 1
Jehovah filled His throne; Ere man was formed, or angels made,
The Maker lived alone.
The present and the past,
And sees our ages waste.
And vast destruction come; The earth and heavens, how old they
And flame melt down the skies;
When all creation dies. 5 His boundless years can ne'er decrease
But still maintain their prime; Eternity's His dwelling-place,
And Ever is His time.
