SELECTION OF HYMNS.

GOD.

L.M. Paul's, 246. Fawcett, 184.

The spirituality of God. 11 L. M. Addison's, Tune 1.

John iv. 24. NEEDHAM. A song vf praise. STENNETT.

INHOU art, O God! a Spirit pure, Iiro God, the universal King,

1 Invisible to mortal eyes; 1 Let ali mankind their tribute bring; Th' immortal and th' eternal King, All that have breath, your voices raise, The great, the good, the only wise. In songs of never-ceasing praise.

2 Whilst nature changes, and her works 2 The spacious earth on which we tread, Corrupt, decay, dissolve, and die, And wider beavens stretch'd o'er our Thy essence pure no change shall see, head,

Secure of immortality.
A large and solemn temple frame
To celebrate its Builder's fame.

3 Thou great Invisible ! what hand

Can draw thy image spotless fair? 3 Here the bright sun, that rules the day, To what in heaven, to what on earth, As through the sky he makes his way, Can men th' immortal King compare? To all the world proclaims aloud

4 Let stupid heathens frame their gods The boundless sovereignty of God.

Of gold and silver, wood and stone, 4 When from his courts the sun retires, Ours is the God that made the heavens; And with the day his voice expires, Jehovah he, and God alone. The moon and stars adopt the song, 5 My soul, thy purest homage pay, And thro' the night the praise prolong. In truth and spirit him adore; 5 The listening earth with rapture hears

More shall this please than sacrifice, The harmonious music of the spheres ;

Than outward forms delight him more. And all her tribes the notes repeat,

That God is wise, and good, and great. 14 L. M. Angel's Hymn, 60. Gould's, 272. 6 But man, endow'd with nobler powers,

Eternity of God. Ps.xc. STEELE. His God in nobler strains adores :

T ORD, thou hast been thy children's His is the gift to know the song,

u God, As well as sing with tuneful tongue.

All-powerful, wise, and good, and just,

In every age their safe abode,
L. M, Old Hundredth, 100.

Their hope, their refuge, and their trust.
The unity of God. Deut. iv. 4.

2 Before thy word gave nature birth,

Or spread the starry heavens abroad, PTERNAL God! Almighty cause

Or form'd the varied face of earth, V Of earth, and seas, and worlds un

From everlasting thou art God. known; All things are subject to thy laws,

3 Great Father of eternity, All things depend on thee alone.

How short are ages in thy sight!

A thousand years, how swift they fly, 2 Thy glorious Being singly stands,

Like one short stent watch of night! Of all within itselt possest,

4 Uncertain life, how soon it flies ! Controll'd by none are thy commands,

Dream of an hour, how short our bloom : Thou from thyself alone art blest.

Like spring's gay verdure now we rise, 3 To thee alone ourselves we owe;

Cut down ere night to fill the tomb. Let heaven and earth due homage pay; 5 Teach us to count our short'ning days, All other gods we disavow,

And, with true diligence, apply Deny their claims, renounce their sway. Our hearts to wisdom's sacred ways, Spread thy great name through hea- |

That we may learn to live and die. then lands;

16 O make our sacred pleasures rise Their idol deities dethrone;

In sweet proportion to our pains, Reduce the world to thy command;

Till e'en the sad remembrance dies,

7 Let thy almighty work appear

6 In vain our haughty reason swells, With power and evidence divine;

For nothing 's found in thee And may the bliss thy servants share But boundless inconceivables, Continued to their children shine.

And vast eternity. 8 Thy glorious image, fair imprest, 1 7 L. M. Wareham, 117. Broadway, 381, Let all our hearts and lives declare ;

The omnipotence of God. Beneath thy kind protection blest,

Ps. CXXXV. MERRICK. May all our labours own thy care!

VE servants of your God, his fame

The courts of Israel's Lord frequent. Ps. cii. 25-28. DODDRIDGE. 2 Him praise--the everlasting King,

And mercy's unexhausted spring : I CREAT Former of this various frame, Haste, to his Laine your voices rear;

U Our souls adore thine awful name! What name like his the heart can cheer? And bow and tremble while they praise

3 Thy greatness, Lord, my thoughts attest, The Ancient of eternal days.

With awful gratitude imprest, 2 Thou, Lord, with unsurprised survey, Nor know, among the seats divine, Saw'st nature rising yesterday;

A power that shall cuntend with thine: And, as to-morrow, shall thine eye

4 O thou, whose all-disposing sway See earth and stars in ruin lie.

The heavens, the earth, and seas obey : 3 Beyond an angel's vision bright,

Whose might through all extent extends, Thou dwell'st in self-existent light;

Sinks through all depth, all height tranWhich shines with undiminish'd ray,

: 5 From earth's low margin to the skies, 4 Our days a transient period run,

Let death consign us to the ground; Permits the imprison'd winds to fly, Let the last general flame arise,

The surface of the foaming deep : 6 Calm as the summer's ocean, we 7 Him praise--the everlasting King Can all the wreck of nature see;

And mercy's unexhausted spring: While grace secures us an abode,

Haste, to his name your voices rear: Unshaken as the throne of God.

The omnipresence and omniscience The Infinite. WATTS.

of God. Ps. cxxxix. I THY names, how infinite they be! IT ORD! thou with an unerring beam 1 Great Everlasting One!

U Surveyest all my powers : Boundless thy might and majesty,

My rising steps are watch'd by thee; And unconfined thy throne.

By thee my resting hours. 2 Thy glories shine of wondrous size, 2 My thoughts, scarce struggling into birth And wondrous large thy grace;

Great God, are known to thee: Immortal day breaks from thine eyes, Abroad, at home, still I'm inclosed And Gabriel veils his face.

With thine immensity. 3 Thine Essence is a vast abyss

3 To thee, the labyrinths of life Which angels cannot sound,

In open view appear; An ocean of infinities

Nor steals a whisper from my lips Where all our thoughts are drown'd. Without thy listening ear. 4 The mysteries of creation lie

4 Behind I glance, and thou art there: Beneath enlighten'd minds;

Before me, shines thy name; Thoughts can ascend above the sky, And 't is thy strong Almighty hand And fly before the winds;

Sustains my tender frame. 5 Reason may grasp the massy hills, 5 Such knowledge mocks the vain essa And stretch from pole to pole;

Of my astonish'd mind; But half thy name our spirit fills,

Nor can my reason's soaring eye And overloads our soul.

Its towering summ't find.

10 The majesty eternal King,

GLORY to thajesty siges singclaim.

PAUSE.

| 4 His providence unfolds the book, 6 Where from thy Spirit shall I stretch

And makes his councils shine;
The pinions of my flight,

Each opening leaf, and every stroke, Or where, through nature's spacious

Fulfils some deep design. Shall I elude thy sight? (range, 5 Here, he exalts neglected worms 7 Scaled I the skies, the blaze divine

To sceptres and a crown: Would overwhelm my soul :

And there, the following page he turns, Plunged I to hell, there should I hear

And treads the monarch down. Thine awful thunders roll.

6 Not Gabriel asks the reason why;

Nor God the reason gives; 8 If on a morning's darting ray With matchless speed I rode,

Nor dares the favourite angel pry And flew to the wild lonely shore,

Between the folded leaves. That bounds the ocean's flood,

7 My God, I would not long to see 9 Thither thine hand, all-present God!

My fate with curious eyes, Must guide the wondrous way,

What gloomy lines are writ for me, And thine omnipotence support

Or what bright scenes may rise ; The fabric of my clay.

8 In thy fair book of life and grace, 10 Should I involve myself around

O may I find my name, With clouds of tenfold night,

Recorded in some humble place,

Beneath my Lord the Lamb!
The clouds would shine like blazing noon
Before thy piercing sight.

10 PART I. 7's. Alcester, 213. 11 The beams of noon, the midnight hour,

The majesty of God. B. FRANCIS. Are both alike to thee: O may I ne'er provoke that power

CLORY to th' eternal King, From which I cannot flee!'

U Clad in majesty supreme!

Let all heaven his praises sing, Part II. C. M. Malvern, 404.

Let all worlds his power proclaim. The power of God. H. K. WHITE. | 2 Through eternity he reigns, I THE Lord our God is full of might

In unbounded realms of light: 1 The winds obey his will;

He the universe sustains He speaks, and in his heavenly height

As an atom in his sight. The rolling sun stands' still.

3 Suns on suns, through boundless space, 2 Rebel, ye waves, and o'er the land

With their systems move or stard ; With threatening aspect roar!

Or, to occupy their place, The Lord uplifts his awful hand,

New orbs rise at his command. And chains you to the shore.

4 Kingdoms flourish, empires fall, 3 [Howl, winds of night, your force com

Nations live, and nations die, Without his high behest, [bine!

All forms nothing, nothing all Ye shall not in the mountain-pine

At the movement of his eye. Disturb the sparrow's nest.)

50 let my transported soul 4 His voice sublime is heard afar,

Ever on his glories gazel,

Ever yield to his control,
In distant peals it dies;
He yokes the whirlwind to his car,

Ever sound his lofty praise !
And sweeps the howling skies.

Part II. C.M. Hammond, 226. 5 Ye nations bend-in reverence bend;

The majesty of God. STERNHOLD. Ye monarchs, wait his nod; And bid the choral song ascend,

I THE Lord descended from above, To celebrate your God.

1 And bow'd the hcavens most high ;

And underneath his feet he cast C.M. Abridge, 201. Trinity, 181.

The darkness of the sky.
Divine sovereignty. WATTS. 12 On cherub and on cherubim
IKEEP silence, all created things,

Full royally he rode;
And wait your Maker's nod:

And on the wings of mighty winds
My soul stands trembling while she sings Came flying all abroad.
The honours of her God.

3 He sat serene upon the floods,
Life, death, and hell, and worlds unknown, Their fury to restrain;
Hang on his firin decree:

And He, as sovereign Lord and King, He sits on no precarious throne,

For evermore shall reign. Nor borrows leave to be.

L.M. Ulverston, 179. Islington, 40. Chain'd to his throne, a volume lies, With all the fates of men,

The wisdom of God, BEDDOME. With every angel's form and size,

AIT, O my soul, thy Maker's will ;

[graphic]

Nor let a murmuring thought arise! 5 In all thy doctrines and commands,
His ways are just, his counsels wise.

Thy counsels and designs

In every work thy hands have framed, 2 He in the thickest darkness dwells,

Thy Love supremely shines.
Performs his work, the cause conceals;
But though his methods are unknown,

| 6 Angels and men the news proclaim Judgment and truth support his throne. Through earth and heaven above

The joyful and transporting news, 3 In heaven, and earth, and air, and seas, That God the Lord is Love.

He executes his firm decrees;
And by his saints it stands confess'd

| 12 L.M. Derby, 169. Portugal, 97. That what he does is ever best.

Loving-lindness of God. MEDLEY. 4 Wait then, my soul, submissive wait,

WAKE, my soul, in joyful lays, Prostrate before his awful seat;

And sing thy great Redeemer's And, 'midst the terrors of his rod,

praise : Trust in a wise and gracious God.

He justly claims a song from me,

His loving-kindness, O how free! 19 Part I. C. M. Liverpool, 83.

| 2 He saw me ruin'd in the fall, Goodness of God. Nah. i. 7. STEELE.

Yet loved me, notwithstanding all :
VE humble souls, approach your God

He saved me from my lost estate,
With songs of sacred praise,

His loving-kindness, o how great!
For he is good, immensely good,

3 Though numerous hosts of mighty foes, And kind are all his ways.

Though earth and hell my way oppose, 2 All nature owns his guardian care,

He safely leads my soul along, In him we live and move;

His loving-kindness, O how strong! But nobler benefits declare

4 When trouble, like a gloomy cloud, The wonders of his love.

Has gather'a thick and thunder'd loud

He near my soul has always stood, 3 He gave his Son, his only Son,

His loving-kindness, O how good. To ransom rebel worms; 'T is here he makes his goodness known

5 Often I feel my sinful heart In its diviner fo.ms,

Prone from my Jesus to depart;

But though I have him oft forgot, 4 To this dear refuge, Lord, we come; His loving-kindness changes not. 'Tis here our hope relies ;

6 Soon shall I pass the gloomy vale, A safe defence, a peaceful home,

Soon all my mortal powers must fail; When storms of trouble rise.

O may my last expiring breath 5 Thine eye beholds, with kind regard, His loving-kindness sing in death! The souls who trust in thee;

7 Then let me mount and soar away Their humble hope thou wilt reward

To the bright world of endless day: With bliss divinely free.

And sing, with rapture and surprise, 6 Great God, to thy almighty love,

His loving-kindness in the skies. What honours shall we raise?

C. M. Michael's, 119. Pietr, 513. Not all the raptured songs above Can render equal praise.

Divine condescension WATTS.

1 W HEN the Eternal bows the skies 10 PART II. C. M. Staughton, 24. W To visit earthly things, God is love. 1 John iv. 8.

With scorn divine he turns his eyes

From towers of haughty kings. 1 A MID the splendours of thy state, My God, thy Love appears,

2 He bids his awful chariot roll With the soft radiance of the moon

Far downward from the skies,

To visit every humble soul,
Among a thousand stars.

With pleasure in his eyes. 2 Nature, through all her ample round,

3 Why should the Lord that reigns above Thy boundless Power proclaims,

Disdain so lofty kings? And, in melodious accents, speaks

Say, Lord, and why such looks of love The Goodness of thy names.

Upon such worthless things? 3 Thy justice, holiness, and truth,

4 Mortals, be dumb ; what creature dard Our solemn awe excite;

Dispute his awful will ?
But the sweet charms of sovereign grace Ask no account of his affairs,
O’erwhelm us with delight.

But tremble and be still. 10
4 Sinai, in clouds, and smoke, and fire, 5 Just like his nature is his grace,
Thunders thy dreadful name;

All sovereign and all free; But Sion sings, in melting notes,

Great God, how searchless are thy ways The honours of the Lamb.

How deep thy judgments be!
