And offer notes divine
To your Creator's praise. Ye holy throng
In worlds of light
In glorious order stand,
By his supreme command.
The God that rules above;
And makes them taste his love: While earth and sky His saints shall raise Attempt his praise, His honours high. 148. FOURTH PART. 8's & 7'S. DUBLIN C. 1 PRAISE the Lord ! ye heavens, adore him;
Praise him, angels in the height;
Praise him, all ye stars of light!
Worlds his mighty voice obeyed ;
For their guidance he hath made. 3 Praise the Lord, for he is 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;
Praise and magnify his name! 149.
C. M. WATTS.
And let your songs be new;
His later wonders show.
Shall their Redeemer sing;
While Zion owns her King.
3 The Lord takes pleasure in the just,
Whom sinners treat with scorn;
Salvation shall adorn.
E'en on a dying bed :
For God shall raise the dead. 5 When Christ his judgment-seat ascends,
And bids the world appear, Thrones are prepared for all his friends,
Who humbly loved him here. 150.
Praise him at the hallowed shrine;
To its Maker's praise reply. 2 All who vital breath enjoy,
In his praise that breath employ;
FOR PUBLIC WORSHIP.

L. M. STEELE. Eristence of God manifested from his Works. 1 THERE is a God-all nature speaks,
Through earth, and air, and sea, and skies; See, from the clouds his glory breaks,
When earliest beams of morning rise. 2 The rising sun, serenely bright,
Throughout the world's extended frame, Inscribes, in characters of light,
His mighty Maker's glorious name. 3 Ye curious minds, who roam abroad,
And trace creation's wonders o'er, Confess the footsteps of your God ;
Bow down before him and adore. 2.
C. P. M. SMART.
The Great I AM. 1 WE sing of God, the mighty source Of all things, the stupendous force
On which all things depend ; From whose right arm, beneath whose eyes, All period, power, and enterprise
Commence, and reign, and end. 2 The world, the clustering spheres he made, The glorious light, the soothing shade;
Dale, plain, and grove and hill;
And wisdom hides her skill.
And smitten to the heart,
Replied, O Lord, THOU ART. 3.
L. M. · KIPPIS.
God Incomprehensible. 1 GREAT God! in vain man's narrow view
Attempts to look thy nature through;
Thy glories never can be known.
Who countless years his God has sought,
Enough for mortal minds to know;
Through all thy works and conduct shine. 40! may our souls with rapture trace
Thy works of nature and of grace;
Press on to know and do thy will. 4.

God the Creator.
Her great Creator and her King :
Deny the tribute of their praise.
Begin to make his glories known,
Throughout creation's utmost bound. 3 Oh! may our ardent zeal employ
Our loftiest thoughts, and loudest songs;
Hosanna from ten thousand tongues. 4 Yet, mighty God, our feeble frame
Attempts in vain to reach thy name:
