Rom. 11 : 33–36.

NEEDHAM.

3 And so 'mid boundless time and space,

Oh, grant us still in thee to dwell,
And through the ceaseless web to trace

Thy presence working all things well.
23.
To him who gave thee power to sing :

,
Praise him, who is all praise above,

The source of wisdom and of love.
2 How vast his knowledge! how profound !

A depth where all our thoughts are drowned !
The stars he numbers, and their names

He gives to all those heavenly flames.
3 Through each bright world above, behold

Ten thousand thousand charms unfold :
Earth, air, and mighty seas combine,

To speak his wisdom all divine.
4 But in redemption, oh, what grace!

Its wonders, oh, what thought can trace !
Here wisdom shines for ever bright:

Praise him, my soul, with sweet delight. 24.

Ps. 104 : 1, 2.
YOME, O my soul ! in sacred lays,

Attempt thy great Creator's praise :
But, oh, what tongue can speak his fame!

What mortal verse can reach the theme !
2 Enthroned amid the radiant spheres,

He glory, like a garment, wears ;
To form a robe of light divine,

Ten thousand suns around him shine.
3 In all our Maker's grand designs,

Almighty power, with wisdom, shines ;
His works, through all this wondrous frame,

Declare the glory of his name.
4 Raised on devotion's lofty wing,

Do thou, my soul, his glories sing :
And let his praise employ thy tongue,
Till listening worlds shall join the song !

;

The garments he assumes

Are light and majesty :
His glories shine with beams so bright,

No mortal eye can bear the sight.
2 Through all his ancient works,

Surprising wisdom shines;
Confounds the powers of hell,

And breaks their curs’d designs ;
Strong is his arm, and shall fulfill

His great decrees, his sovereign will.
3 And can this mighty King

Of glory condescend,-
And will he write his name,

“My Father and my Friend?”
I love his name, I love his word ;
Join, all my powers, and praise the Lord !

3 And so ʼmid boundless time and space,

Oh, grant us still in thee to dwell,
And through the ceaseless web to trace

Thy presence working all things well. 23.

Ps. 135 : 1-5.

MONTG MERY. YTAND up, and bless the Lord,

Ye people of his choice :
Stand up, and bless the Lord your God,

With heart, and soul, and voice.
2 Though high above all praise,

Above all blessing high,
Who would not fear his holy name,

And laud, and magnify ?
3 Oh, for the living flame

From his own altar brought,
To touch our lips, our souls inspire,

And wing to heaven our thought!
4 God is our strength and song,

And his salvation ours;
Then be his love in Christ proclaimed

With all our ransomed powers.

Psalm 103.

WATTS

Y soul, repeat his praise,

great :

Whose anger is so slow to rise,

So ready to abate.
2 God will not always chide ;

And when his wrath is felt,
Its strokes are fewer than our crimes,

And lighter than our guilt.
3 His power subdues our sins,

And his forgiving love,
Far as the east is from the west,

Doth all our guilt remove.
4 High as the heavens are raised

Above the ground we tread,
So far the riches of his grace,

Our highest thoughts exceed.
