4 Lightnings, that round th’ Eternal play? Thunders that from his arm are hurled! The grandeur of your God convey, Blazing, or bursting on the world.

5 From clime to clime, from shore to

shore, Be the almighty God adored. He made the nations by his power, And rules them with his sovereign word.

6 At once let nature's ample round
To God the vast thanksgiving raise;
His high perfection knows no bound,
But fills immensity of space.

OME, my brethren, let us try,
For a little season,
Every burden to lay by,
..Come and let us reason.

2 What is this that casts you downt What is this that grieves you?

Speak and let the worst be known, Speaking may relieve you.

3 Think on what your Saviour bore
In the gloomy garden;
Sweating blood from every pore,
Crying, “O my father.”

4 See him mailed to the tree, Bleeding, groaning, dying; See, he suffer'd this for thee,

Therefore be believing.

5 Joseph took his body down,
Shrouded it in linen,
Laid it in the silent tomb,
And returned mourning. .

6 Soon he raised from the tomb,
Angels fly from glory;
O what glory shone around!
Hallelujah, glory.

7 Brethren, don't you feel the flame? Sisters, don't you love him."

Let us join to praise his name,
Let us never grieve him.

8 Soon we'll meet to part no more,
Soon we’ll be in heaven,
There to join with those above.
And forever praise him.

ING, ye redeemed of the Lord,
Your great deliverer sing,
Pilgrims, for Zion's city bound,
Bejoyful in your King.

2 See the fair way his hand has rais'd,
How holy, and how plain!
Nor shall the simplest trav’ler err,
Nor ask the track in vain.

3 Nor ravening lion shall destroy,
Nor lurking serpent wound;
Pleasure and safety, peace and praise,
Thro' all the path are found.

4. A hand divine shall lead you on,
Through all the blissful road;
Till to the sacred mount you rise,
And see your smiling God.

5 These garlands of immortal joy
Shall bloom on every head;
While sorrow, sighing, and distress,
Like shadows all are fled.

6 March en in your Redeemer's strength;
Pursue his footsteps still;
And let the prospect cheer your eye,
While laboring up the hill.

Y. virgins of Jesus arise;
Nor slumber like fools in your camps;
Like virgins of old that were wise,
# Take plenty of oil with your lamps.

2 The bridegroom will shortly appear,
And with a loud voice make his call;
Then if you must go to prepare:
The door will be shut on you all.

3 say not unto others give oil, [out;
Our lamps, while we slept have, gone
Not so ; that would others despoil,
And plunge darkness and doubt.
