2. Where'er we turn our gazing eyes,

Thy radiant footsteps shine;
Ten thousand pleasing wonders rise,

And speak their source divine.
3. The living tribes of countless forms

In earth and sea and air,
The meanest flies, the smallost worms,

Almighty pow'r declare. 4. Thy wisdom, pow’r, and goodness, Lord,

In all thy works appear:
And, 0! let man thy praise record,

Man, thy distinguish'd care !
5. From thee the breath of life he drew;

That breath thy pow'r maintains ; Thy tender mercy, ever new,

His brittle frame sustains. 6. Yet nobler favours claim his praise,

Of reason's light possess’d, By revelation's brightest rays

Still more divinely bless d.
7. On us thy providence has shone

With gentle, smiling rays;
may our lips and lives make known
Thy goodness and thy praise !

The King of kings with glory crown.

Let the Creator's praise arise ; Let the Redeemer's name be sung

Till suns shall rise and set no more.

HYMN 7. P. M.
1. I'LL praise my Maker, whilst I've breath;

And when my voice is lost in death,

Praise shall employ my nobler pow'rs. My days of praise shall ne'er be past Whilst life and thought and being last,

Or immortality endures.
2. Happy the man, whose hopes rely
On Israel's God, who made the sky,

And earth, and seas, with all their train.

And none shall find his promise vain. 3. The Lord pours eyesight on the blind; The Lord supports the fainting mind ; ·

He sends the lab'ring conscience peace;
He helps the stranger in distress,
The widow and the fatherless,

And grants the pris’ner sweet release.

And, when my voice is lost in death,

Praise shall employ my nobler pow'rs.
My days of praise shall ne'er be past,
Whilst life and thought and being last,
Or immortality endures,

And all their various pow'rs
Assist th' exalted themę.

Should nobler praises flow;
And ev'ry thankful heart
With warm devotion glow,

Ye highly blest
Above the rest ;

Declare his praise.

And own your gracious God!
