Praise to God.
34. L. M. WATTS.
God exalted above all praise.
Becomes the majesty of GOD;
Where stars revolve their little rounds! 2 Far in the depths of space, thy throne
Burns with a lustre all its own :
Angelic pow’rs and splendors meet. 3 LORD! what shall feeble mortals do?
We would adoré our Maker too:
The Great, the Holy, and the High! 4 Something we learn from nature's frame;
Thy word has more reveal'd thy name :
Leaves all our soaring thoughts behind. 5 God is in heav'n, and man below:
Short be our tunes, our words be few :
35. C. M. WATTS.
God the proper object of praise.
Your sweetest passions raise;
Increasing with the praise.
Are his divine employ;
His treasure and his joy.
He bids the vapours rise;
Sweep through the sounding skies.
Is found with him alone;
Where our JEHOVAH's known.
We bow with faith and fear;
And claims our honours there.
36. P. M. WATTS.
His glory let the heathens know,
And all his mighty works proclaim. 2 The heathens know thy glory, Lord! The wond'ring nations read thy word;
And here JEHOVAH's name is known : Our worship never shall be paid To gods which mortal hands have made ;
Our Maker is our God alone.
3 He fram'd the globe, he built the sky, He made the shining worlds on high,
And reigns complete in glory there : His robes are majesty and light; His splendor, how divinely bright!
His temple, how divinely fair ! 4 Come the great day, the glorious hour, When earth shall feel his saving pow'r,
And distant nations fear his name:
And in his courts his grace proclaim.
37. L. M. MERRICK.
Praise ye the LORD.
Earth, to his praise the note prolong,
2 Great is the LORD, and great his praise;
What god like him our fear can raise ?
Created first, and then ador'd.
Pow'r, glory, strength, to him ascribe;
Oft to his courts your way pursue.
Ye saints, in low prostration join;
38. C. M. Watts.
A hymn of praise to God.
There's none hath pow'r divine;
Nor are their works like thine.
Their off'rings round thy throne;
For thou art God alone.
Teach me thine heav'nly ways;
39. PM. WARRINGTON COLLECTION. The God and Father of Christ to be praised. 10 COME, all ye sons of Adam, and raise
A song unto God; how lovely his praise! Adore him who reigns in his glory above, And fills the wide earth with his tokens of
love. 2 His breath is your life, your reason a ray
Effus'd from his light to guide all your way; He heals your diseases, your wants he sup
plies, And wipes away tears from the penitent's
eyes. 3 Dash down your false gods of silver and
stone; Him worship who made earth and heav'n
alone, His prophet, his son, his salvation receive, Flee, flee from perdition, obey him and
live. 4 O Father of men! in mercy command
The gospel to shine on all human land; That far as the sun e'er diffuses his flame, Thy praises may rise in Messiah's great
40. C. M. Watts.
Reverential worship, 1 SING to the LORD JEHOVAH's name,
And in his strength rejoice:
