THE PERFECTIONS OF GOD, 12 His eye, with infinite survey,

Does the whole world behold;

He form'd us all of equal clay,
PSALM 33. 2d Part. P. M. * And knows our feeble mould.
St. Hellens, Forty-sixth Psalm.

3 Kings are not rescu'd by the force Allsufficiency of God, and vanity of creatures.

Of armies, from the grave; 'O Reveals the treasure of his word,

Nor speed, nor courage of an horse

Can the bold rider save. And builds his church, his earthly throne! 4 Vain is the strength of beasts or men, His eye the heathen world surveys, He form’d their hearts, he knows their ways; But holy souls from God obtain

To hope for safety thence ; But God, their Maker, is unknown.

A strong and sure defence. 2 Let kings rely upon their host,

5 God is their fear, and God their trust, *And of his strength the champion boast;

When plagues or famine spread ; In vain they boast, in vain rely:

His watchful eye secures the just, In vain we trust the brutal force,

Among ten thousand dead. Or eed, or courage of an horse To guard his rider, or to fly. 6 Lord, let our hearts in thee rejoice,

And bless us from thy throne ; 3 The eye of thy compassion, Lord, Doth more secure defence afford, (stand: For we have

made thy word our choice, When death or dangers threatening

And trust thy grace alone.
Thy watchful eye preserves the just,

PSALM 36. C. M.
Who make thy name their fear and trust,
When wars or famine waste the land.

Barby, St. James, Trish.
4 In sickness or the bloody field, Being and attributes of God asserted.
Thou our physician, thou our shield,
Send us salvation from thy throne: 'WHILE men grow bold in wicked

And yet a God they own, (ways, We wait to see thy goodness shine ;

My heart within me often says, Let us rejoice in help divine,

Their thoughts believe there's none.". For all our hope is God alone.

2 Their thoughts and ways at once declare PSALM 33. 2d Part. C. M. * (Whate'er their lips profess) St. Asaphs, Wareham, Rochester.

6 God hath no wrath for them to fear, Alsufficiency of God, &c.

“ Nor will they seek his grace." LEST is the nation where the Lord 3What strange self-flattery blinds the r

But there's a hastening hour, [eyes; Where he reveals his heavenly word, When they shall see, with fore surprise.

And calls their tribes his own. The terrors of thy power. WATTS.


'B' Hath inoxha his gracious throne ;

} MY

4 Thy justice shall maintain its throne,

HYMN 45. B, 2. L. M. Though mountains melt away;

Quercy, Shoel, Wells. Thy judgments are a world unknown,

Condescension of God. Å deep unfathom'd sea. 5 Above these heaven's created rounds,

THW favours Lord, surprise our souls ; Thy mercies, Lord, extend ; What canst thou find beneath the poles, Thy truth outlives the narrow bounds, To tempt thy chariot downward thus? Where time and nature end..

2 Still might he fill his starry throne, 6 Safety to man thy goodness brings, And please his ears with Gabriel's songs; Nor overlooks the beast:

But heavenly Majesty comes down, Beneath the shadow of thy wings And bows to hearken to our tongues ! Thy children choose to rest,

3 Great God! what poor returns we pay 7 (From thee, when creature streams run For love so infinite as thine !

And mortal comforts die, [low, Words are but air, and tongues but clay, Perpetual springs of life shall now,

But thy compassion's ali divine. And raise our pleasures high. 8 Though all created light decay,

HYMN 46. B. 2. L. M. And death close up our eyes,


Portugal, Truro, Dunstan. Thy ; presence makes eternal day,

Condescension of God. Where clouds can never rise.]

UP to the Lord, who reigns on high, PSALM 103, 2d Part. S. M.

And views the nations from afar,
Dover, Pelham.

Let everlasting praises fly,
Compassion of God.

And tell how large his bounties are.
Y soul, repeat his praise, 2[He that can shake the worlds he made,

Whose mercies are so great; Or with his word, or with his rod; Whose ; anger is so slow to rie,

His goodness, how amazing great! So ready to abate.

And what a condescending God! God will not always chide ; 3God, that must stoop to view the skies, And when his strokes are felt,

And bow to see what angels do, His strokes: are fewer than our crimes, Down to the earth he casts his eyes, And lighter than our guilt.

Ànd bends his footsteps downward too.) 3 High as the heavens are rais'd

4 He overrules all mortal things, Above the ground we tread,

And manages our mean affairs : So far the riches of his grace

On humble souls the King of kings Our highest thoughts exceed. Bestows his counsels, and his cares. 4 His power subdues our sins,

5 Our sorrows and our tears we pour And his forgiving love,

Into the bosom of our God; Far as the east is from the west,

He hears us in the mournful hour, Doth all our guilt- remove.

And helps to bear the heavy load. 5 The pity of the Lord

6 In vain might lofty princes try To those that fear his name,

Such condescension to perform ; Is such as, tender parents : feel;

For worms were never rais'd so high He know's our feeble frame, Above their meanest fellow worm. 6 He knows we are but dust,

170! could our thankful hearts devise Scatter'd: by every breath;

A tribute equal to thy grace, His anger, like a rising wind, To the third heaven our songs should rise,

Can send us swift to death. And teach the golden harps thy praise. try Our days are as the grass,

Hymn 99. B. 2. C. M.
Or like the morning flower;
If one sharp blast sweep o'er the field,

Abridge, Christmas.
It withers in an hour.

* 2 [Ten thousand ages ere the skies The world, created by his hands, Were into motion brought,

Still on its first foundation stands. All the long years and worlds to come 2 But ere this spacious world was made,

Stood present to his thought. Or had its first foundation laid, 3 There's not a sparrow nor a worm

Thy throne eternal ages stood, But's found in his decrees; Thyself the Ever-living God. He raises monarchs to their thrones, 3 Like floods the angry nations rise,

And sinks them as he please..] And aim their rage against the skies ; 4 If light attend the course I run,

Vain floods, that aim their rage so hig!! 'Tis he provides those rays

At thy rebuke the billows die. And 'is his hand that hides wy sun, 4 Forever shall thy throne endure :

If darkness cloud my days. Thy promise stands forever sure ; 5 Yet I would not be much concern'd, And everlasting holiness Nor vainly long to see

Becomes the dwellings of thy grace. The volumes of his deep decrees, What months are writ for me.

2 God is th' Eternal King: Thy fues in vain Dominion and immuuabilily of God. Raise their rebellion to confound thy reign.

And roar, and. wss their waves against the shis: What worthless worms are we! Foaming at heaven, they rage with wild cominution, Let the whole race of creatures bow,

But heaven's high arches' scorn the swelling uccal. And pay their praise to thee.

3 Ye tempests, rage no mure; ye floods, be still !

And the mad world submissive to his will: 2 Thy throne eternal ages stood,

Built on his truth, his church must ever stand, Ere seas or stars were made;

Firm. are his promises and strong his hand.
