That through heav'n's capacious round
Praise to thee may ever sound. 4. Lord, thy mercies never fail:
Hail, celestial Goodness, hail !
HYMN 13. P. M.
Let each enraptur'd thought obey,
To swell the glorious theme,
His wondrous mercy sing.
And touch the sweetest string.
Ye thunders, speak his pow'r..
Th' astonish'd worlds adore.
Praise him who bids you roll.
And breathe it to the soul. 5. Wake, all ye feather'd throngs, and sing ; Ye cheerful warblers of the spring,
Harmonious anthems raise
And tan'd your voice to praise.
In heav'nly praise employ;
Spread the Creator's name around,
HYMN 14. C. M.
How bright thy bounties are ! Through nature's ample round they shine,
Thy goodness to declare. 2. But in the nobler work of grace,
What sweeter mercy smiles In my benign Redeemer's face,
And ev'ry fear beguiles ! 3. Such wonders, Lord, while I survey,
To thee my thanks shall rise, When morning ushers in the day,
Or ev'ning veils the skics. 4. When glimm’ring life resigns its flame,
Thy praise shall tune my breath. The sweet remembrance of thy name
Shall gild the shades of death. 5. But, oh! how blest my song shall rise,
When free'd from feeble clay, And all thy glories meet mine eyes
In one eternal day. 6. Not seraphs, who surround thy name
Through yon ethereal plains,
HYMN 15. P. M.
God, whose glory fills the sky!
Praise the God, on whom ye call.
He does ev'ry want supply. 3. Sons of earth, the triumph join,
Praise him with the host diyine..
Emulate the heav'nly pow'rs ;
Their all-gracious God is ours. 4. Happy, who his laws obey !
Them he rules with mildest sway:
He hath chosen for his own. 5. Him, whose joy is to restore,
Him let all our hearts adore ;
HYMN 16. L. M.
Thy goodness in full glory shines.
That veils and darkens thy designs. 2. For ever firm thy justice stands,
As mountains their foundations keep. Wise are the wonders of thy hands;
Thy judgments are a mighty deep. 3. Thy providence is kind and large ;
Both man and beast thy bounty share ; The whole creation is thy charge ;,
But saints are thy peculiar care. 4. My God! how excellent thy grace,
Whence all our hope and comfort springs! The sons of Adam in distress,
Fly to the shadow of thy wings. 5. From the provisions of thy house,
We shall be fed with sweet repast, There merey like a river flows,
And þrings salvation to our taste. 6. Life, like a fountain rich and free,
Springs from the presence of the Lord ;
HYMN 17. c. M.
God of eternal love!
My work and joy shall be the same,
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 pow'r, thy heav'nly state,
With public splendour shown. 6. The world is manag’d by thy hands,
Thy saints are rul'd by love; And thine eternal kingdom stands, Tho'rocks and hills remove.
HYMN 18. P.-M. 1. YF
works of God! on him alone,
And saw that all was good.
And gave it pow'r to move,
The wonders of his love.
To heav'ns bright mansions soar:
1. My soul, praise the Lord,
Till nature's self shall waste away,
And time shall be no more. 4. Praise him, ye meek and humble train! Who shall those heav'nly joys obtain,
Prepar'd for souls sincere. Now praise him till you take your way To regions of eternal day, To dwell for ever there. HYMN 19 P. M.
His bounties proclaim.
Let all creatures raise
The chorus of praise !
God sits on his throne,
Their Author is known.
Its Maker to show;
By wisdom divine,
With gracious design.
His providence reigns,
Whose love still sustains.
With reason endu'd,
By grace is renew’d:-
Let man ever raise
The chorus of praise !
