O Lord our Lord how excellent! Ps. viii. 1.
O God our Lord, how wonderful
Are thy works ev'ry where! Thy fame surmounts in dignity
The highest heav'ns that are.
Ev'n by the mouth of tender babes
For in those babes thy might is seen,
And when I see the heav'ns above,
The sun, and moon, and all the stars,
Lord! what is man, that thou of him
Tak'st such abundant care?
To visit dost not spare?
Who through faith subdued kingdoms. Heb. xi. 33.
O, for an overcoming faith,
To cheer my dying hours!
And his terrific pow'rs.
Joyful, with all the strength I have,
** Where is thy boasted vict'ry grave?
If sin be pardon'd, I'm secure,
The law condemns, I feel its pow'r,
Now, to the God of victory,
Immortal thanks be paid;
Through Christ, our living head.
I will love thee O Lord my strength! Ps. xviii. 1.
O God, my strength and fortitude,
Of force I must love thee; Thou art my castle and defence,
In my necessity.
The Lord descended from above,
And bowed the heav'ns most high:
And underneath his feet he cast
On cherubs and on cherubim,
Full royally he rode;
Came flying all abroad.
Who then is God except the Lord?
Other there sure is none; Or who is the Omnipotent,
Saving our God alone?
Praise ye the Lord. Ps. cxxxv. 1. Old Version.
O praise the Lord, praise ye his name,
O praise him still, all ye that be
O praise him, ye that stand and see
The glory of the Lord;
Praise him with one accord.
Praise ye the Lord, for he is good,
Sing praises to his name; It is a sweet and pleasant thing,
His praises to proclaim.
The Lord most surely will avenge
And to his servants he will show
Pray without ceasing. 1 Theas. v. 17.
Pray'b is the soul's sincere desire,
Utter'd or unexprest; The motion of an hidden fire
That trembles in the breast.
Pray'r is the burden of a sigh,
The falling of a tear;
When none but God is near.
Pray'r is the simplest form of speech That infant lips can try;
Pray'r, the sublimest strains that reach The Majesty on high.
Pray'r is the christian's vital breath;
The christian's native air; His watchword at the gate of death;
He enters heav'n with pray'r.
