5 He hath, with a piteous eye,
Look'd upon our misery :
Ever faithful, ever sure.
Praise the Lord, for he is kind :
Upon thy people shine ;
Till all that live are thine.
And let that light extend,
To earth's remotest end.
Let all their homage bring :
Redeemer, Judge, and King.
Then earth her fruits shall give:
8.7.- Universal praise. Ps. cxlviii. 1 PRAISE the Lord ! ye heavens, adore him;
Praise him, angels, in the height; Sun and moon rejoice before him;
Praise him, all ye stars of light. 2 Praise the Lord ! for he hath spoken;
Worlds his mighty voice obey'd; Laws which never shall be broken
For their guidance he hath made.
3 Praise the Lord; for he his glorious;
Never shall his promise fail;
Sin and death shall not prevail. 4 Praise the God of our salvation,
Hosts on high his power proclaim; Heaven and earth, and all creation, Laud and magnify his name!
We praise thy name with one accord;
Through all the world do worship thee. 2 To Thee aloud all angels cry,
And ceaseless raise their songs on high;
The heavens, and all the powers of light: 3 The apostles join the glorious throng;
The prophets swell the’ immortal song ;
Eternal anthems to thy praise. 4 Thee, Holy, Holy, Holy King;
Thee, the Lord God of Hosts, they sing;
L. M.-God the deliverer of his people. Ps. cxxvi. 1 WHEN God from sin's captivity
Sets his afflicted people free,
The transient raptures of a dream.
And mirth and music swell their voice,
3 They catch the strain and answer thus,
“ The Lord hath done great things for us, Whence gladness fills our hearts and songs,
Sweet and spontaneous, wake our tongues. 4 Turn our captivity, O Lord,
As southern rivers, at thy word,
Plenty, where all was waste before. 5 Who sow in tears, shall reap in joy;
Nought shall the precious seed destroy,
434. 148th M.- The completing of the spiritual temple. Zech. iv. 7. 1 SING to the Lord above,
Who deigns on earth to raise
Through all its frame,
Harmonious sound. 2 Beneath his eye and care
The edifice shall rise
The polish'd stone,
75.-Creation and redemption.
What thy power has done for man,
2 Every note that cheers the vale,
Every sweet that scents the gale,
Tells what joy we owe to thee. 3 Every breath that heaves the breast,
Every sound by voice exprest,
Tells that life we owe to thee.
Gaze on all thy love could do;
How much more we owe to thee. 5 When we think what we had been,
Sunk in sorrow, lost in sin;
More than joy we owe to thee. 6 When we hear our master say,
“Death is vanquished, come away, Heaven is yours,” we all must see, More than life we owe to thee.
C. M.-Praise to the Redeemer. 1 LET us, the sheep, by Jesus nam’d,
Our Shepherd's mercy bless;
Shew forth our thankfulness. 2 Not unto us, but thee alone,
Be praise and glory given;
But carried on in heaven. 3 The hosts of spirits now with thee,
Eternal anthems sing;
Our hallelujahs bring.
4 Had we our tongues, like them inspir’d,
Like them our songs should rise;
But love the sacrifice.
Accept our weaker lays;
6. 4.- Worthy the Lamb. 1 GLORY to God on high! Let heaven and earth reply,
« Praise ye his name !'
“Worthy the Lamb."
Praising his name:
Worthy the Lamb.”
Praising his name:
471. C.M.- The heavenly Canaan. Deut. iii. 27. xxxiv. 1-4. 1 ON Jordan's stormy banks I stand,
And cast a wishful eye
Where my possessions lie.
