GOD AND HIS PERFECTIONS.
HYMN 1. L. M. [#]
1 THERE is a God-all nature speaks,
2 The rising sun, serenely bright,
O'er the wide world's extended frame Inscribes, in characters of light,
His mighty Maker's glorious name.
3 The flowery tribes, all blooming, rise Above the weak attempts of art; Their bright, inimitable dyes
Speak sweet conviction to the heart.
4 Ye curious minds, who roam abroad,
HYMN 2. 61. L. M. [#]
Perfection of God.
1 THOU art, Almighty Lord of all,
A transient meteor from thy throne;
Is nothing, Lord, compared to thee,
4 But though thy brightness may create
is the central sun
HYMN 3. C. M. [#]
Omnipresence of God.
1 THERE's not a place in earth's vast round, In ocean deep, or air,
Where skill and wisdom are not found,—
2 Around, beneath, below, above,
There Heaven displays its boundless love,
3 Then rise, my soul, and sing his name,
Who spread abroad earth's wondrous frame,
4 Where'er thine earthly lot is cast,
Nor think the mighty theme too vast,-
HYMN 4. H. M. [#]
Great First Cause.
1 THE first almighty Cause,
Who did all things create,
Gave nature all her laws,
The Source of life, the Spring of springs,
2 Where'er we cast our eyes,
Below, or in the skies,
Wonders that can't be told:
To him all bend the knee;
He fills all space, lives everywhere,
HYMN 5. L. P. M. [#]
God in Nature.
1 GREAT GOD, the heaven's well-ordered frame
Of boundless power and skill divine.
2 From night to day, from day to night,
Lectures of heavenly wisdom read;
3 Yet their divine instructions run
And every nation knows their voice; The sun, in robes of splendour dressed, Breaks from the chambers of the east, Moves round, and makes the earth rejoice.
