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

On every hand we see;
0 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;

Thy holiness is all thine own;
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 owp 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.

By all thy Church below. 2 One undivided Trinity

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

And speaks thy glorious name.

And all thy glorious goodness show.

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. 8 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 wonld vie ; Sink as low, and mount as high ; Fall, o'erwhelm'd with love, or soar; Shout, or silently adore ! 105

In prises every hour employ:
Jehovah reigus! be glad, 0 earth,

And shout, ye morning stars, for joy.

C. M.
TAIL, Father, whose creating call

Unnumber'd worlds attend;
Jehovah, comprehending all,

Whom rone 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.
Doelling in light which no man can approach.
TTERNAL Power, Almighty God,
Unfading light is thine abode,

To mortal man unknown. 9 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!

C, M.
