There, like a sun, thy mercy shines,
5 There pardon, peace, and holy joy,
C. M. STEELE.
1 YE humble souls, approach your God
2 All nature owns his guardian care;
3 He gave his well-beloved Son,
4 To this sure refuge, Lord, we come,
5 Thine eye beholds, with kind regard,
Their humble hope thou wilt reward
6 Great God, to thine almighty love
C. M. ADDISON.
1 WHEN all thy mercies, O our God,
Transported with the view, we're lost
2 Unnumbered comforts to each soul
Before our infant hearts conceived
3 When in the slippery paths of youth
4 Ten thousand thousand precious gifts
6 Through all eternity, to thee
1 OUR frame, O God-these noble
2 Oft in the visions of the night,
Our thoughts o'er all thy mercies rove; And, every midnight wakeful hour, We trace the wonders of thy love. 3 The pleasing, unexhausted theme Each rising morn our souls pursueIn fervent prayer ascends to thee,
And still their grateful songs renew.
4 Thy mercies, Lord, through endless years, Shall all our raptured powers employ; Yet endless years will only swell
Our wonder, gratitude, and joy.
L. M. STENNETT.
A song of Praise to God.
1 TO God, the Universal King,
Let all mankind their tribute bring;
2 The spacious earth on which we tread, And wider heavens stretched o'er our head,
A large and solemn temple frame,
3 Here the bright sun, that rules the day,
The boundless sov'reignty of God. 4 When from our view the sun retires, And with the day his voice expires, The moon and stars adopt the song, And through the night his praise prolong. 5 But man, endow'd with nobler pow'rs, His God, in nobler strains adores: His is the gift to know the song,
As well as sing with thankful tongue.
God is Love.
1 COME, ye that know and fear the Lord, And lift your souls above;
Let every heart and voice accord,
2 This precious truth his word declares,
While Christ, th' atoning Lamb, appears, To show, that God is love.
3 Behold his loving-kindness waits,
And calls of mercy reach their hearts,
4 And oh that you, whose hardened hearts
5 Oh may we all, while here below,
Till warmer hearts-in brighter worlds, Shall shout, that God is love.
Condescension of God.
1 THUS saith the high and lofty One, "I sit upon my holy throne;
My name is God-I dwell on high;
2 "But I descend to worlds below;
3 "The humble soul my words revive,
Eternal Dominion of God.
1 GREAT God, how infinite art thou!
2 Thy throne eternal ages stood,
3 Eternity, with all its years,
Stands present in thy view;
4 Our lives through varying scenes are drawn,
5 Great God, how infinite art thou!
Let the whole race of creatures bow,
L. M. BLACKLOCK.
Majesty and Dominion of God.
1 COME, O our souls, in sacred lays, Attempt our great Creator's praise:
But, oh, what tongue can speak his fame!
Ten thousand suns around him shine.
4 Raised on devotion's lofty wing,
L. M. STEELE.
His rule Omnipotence sustains,
And guides the worlds his hands have
2 Ere rolling worlds began to move,
Or ere the heavens were spread abroad, Thine awful throne was fixed above, From everlasting thou art God.
3 The swelling floods tumultuous rise,
And, Lord, thy people shall be pure,
C. M. JARVIS.
