C. M.
Source of all blessings.
TEHOVAH, God, thy gracious power

On every hand we see;
O may the blessings of each hour

Lead all our thoughts to thee.
2 If on the wings of morn we speed,
To earth's remotest bound,
Thy hand will there our journey lead,

Thine arm our path surround.
8 Thy power is in the ocean deeps,

And reaches to the skies;
Thine eye of mercy never sleeps,

Thy gocdness never dies.
4 From mor till noon-till latest eve,

Thy band, O God, we see;
And all the blessings we receive,

Proceed alone from thee. 99

The Author of every good gift. FATHER, to thee my soul I lift;

; Convinced that every perfect gift

From thee alone descends. 2 Mercy and grace are thine alone,

And power and wisdom too :
Without the Spirit of thy Son,

We nothing good can do.
8 We cannot speak one useful word,
One holy thonght conceive,
Unless, in answer to our Lord,

Thyself the blessing give. 4 His blood demands the purchased grace:

His blood's availing plen Obtain'd the help for all our race, And sends it down to me.

5 Thou all our works in us hast wrought;

Our good is all divine :
The praise of every virtuous thought,

And righteous word, is thine.
6 From thee, through Jesus, we receive

The power on thee to call,
In whom we are, and move, and live;

Our God is all in all,

L. M.
TOLY As thou, O Lord, is none;
A drop of that unbounded sea
Is ours,-a drop derived from thee.
2. And when thy purity we share,
Thine only glory we declare ;
And, humbled into nothing, own,
Holy and pure is God alone.
3 Sole, self-existing God and Lord,
By all thy heavenly hosts adored,
Let all on earth bow down to thee,
And own thy peerless majesty.
4 Thy power unparallel'd confess,
Establish'd on the Rock of peace;
The Rock that never shall remove,
The Rock of pure, almighty love.

C. M.
The Trinity.
ATL I holy, holy, holy Lord,
By all thy heavenly best adored,

By all thy Church below. 2 One undivided Trinity

With triumph we proclaim; Thy universe is full of thee,

And speaks thy glorious name.

Thee, holy Son, adore;
And thee, the Holy Ghost, we bless,

And worship evermore.

Our beavenly song shall be
Sopreme, essential One, adored

In co-eternal Three!

L, M,
The glorious goodness of the triune Jehovah.
CONE, Father, Son, and Holy

Whom one All-perfect God we own,
Restorer of thine image lost,

Thy various offices make known.
9 Jehovah in three persone, come
And draw, and sprinkle us, and deal,
Poor, guilty, dying worms, in whom

Thou wilt eternal life reveal.
3 Our fallen, ruind souls, to raise,
The knowledge of thyself bestow;
Reveal the riches of the grace,

And all thy glorious goodness show.

C. M.
One God in three persons.
AIL, Father, Son, and Holy Ghosty

One God in persons three;
Of thes we make our joyful boast,

And homage pay to thee.

Thy Godheal we adore :
Beyond the bounds of time and space

Thou dwellest evermore.

Thine eye doth all things see;
And every thought of every beart

La fully known to thee.

4 Thou loy'st wliate'er thy hands have made ;

Thy goodness we rehearse, In slaining characters display'd

Throughout the universe.
6 Wherefore let every creature give

To thee the praise design'd;
But chiefly, Lord, the thanks receive,
The hearts, of all mankind.

5th P. M. 4 lines 18.
The co-eternal Three,
Hoax holy, holy Lord,

God the Father, God the Word,
God the Comforter, receive
Blessings more than we can give.
2 Join'd with those beyond the sky,
Worshipping the Lord most high,
We our hearts and voices raise,

Echo his eternal praise.
3 Three in one, and one in three,
One, in simplest unity,
God, incline thy gracious ear;
Us, thy lisping creatures, hear.
4 Thee, while man, the earth-bom, sings,
Angels shrink within their wings;
Prostrate seraphim above
Breathe unutterable love.
6 Fain with them our souls would vie ;
Sink As low, and mount as high;
Fall, o'erwhelm'd with love, or soar;
Shout, or silently adore !

L, M. Co-equal and co-eternal. LESSING and honour, praise and love, In earth below, in heaven above,

Bv all thy works, be paid to thee.

2 Let all who owe to thee their birth,

In praises erery hour employ:
Jehovah reigus! be glad, O earth,

And shout, ye morning stars, for joy.

C. M,
JAIL, Father, whose creating call

Unnumber'd worlds attend;
Jehovah, comprehending all,

Whom pone can comprehend.
2 In light unsearchable entbroned,

Whom angels dimly see;
The fountain of the Godhead own'd,

And foremost of the Three :
3 Supreme and all-sufficient God!

When nature shall expire,
And worlds, created by thy nod,

Shall perish by thy fire;
4 Thy Name, Jehovah, be adored

By creatures without end;
Whom none but thy essential Word

And Spirit comprehend. 107

C. M. Drcelling in light which no man can approach. FTERNAL Power, Almighty God,

Who con approach thy throne ! Unfading light is thine abode,

To mortal man unknown. 2 Before the radiance of thine eye,

The heavens no longer shine;
And all the glories of the sky

Are but the shade of thine.
8 Great God, and wilt thou condescend
To cast a look below!
To this vile world thy notice bend--
These seats of sin and wo!
