7s. M. SACRED LYRICS.
Praises to our God belong ;
Praises to the Heavenly King.
Flow around this happy land :
Peace and freedom we enjoy.
May we cheerfully obey, —
Ever own and worship God.
Praises to the King of kings;
And the grateful notes prolong. 1703.
C. M. Christian Psalmist. Thanks for an abundant Harvest. 1 FOUNTAIN of mercy, God of love!
How rich thy bounties are !
Proclaim thy constant care.
The sower bid the grain,
And sent the early rain. 3 The spring's sweet influence, Lord, was thine :
The plants in beauty grew :
And mild, refreshing dew.
A kindly harvest crowns thy love,
And plenty fills the plain.
Thy hand all nature hails ;
Summer nor winter, fails.
L. M. CAMPBELL'S COLI
The Joy in Harvest
And changes mark the rolling year,
And we would celebrate thy praise.
• Thou givest us the finest wheat":
The praise, O Lord, is all thine own.
0, give us hearts to bless thee, Lord;
That hearts and lives should barren prove.
The sickle gives to lay us low ; -
To gather sheaves to thy blest home,
To thy safe garner in the sky. 1905. 6 & 4s. M. MONTGOMERY
Praise to the God of Harvest.
The valleys smile and sing,
The streams rejoice.
Through all the earth ;
Amidst your mirth.
With sweet accord ;
Bless ye the Lord. 106.
DODDRIDGE. The Year croioned with Goodness. 1 ETERNAL Source of every joy,
Thy praise may well our lips employ,
Whose goodness crowns the circling year. 2 Wide as the wheels of nature roll,
Thy hand supports the steady pole ;
And darkness when to veil the skies. 3 The flowery spring, at thy command,
Embalms the air and paints the land ; ;
To raise the corn and cheer the vine.
And winters, softened by thy care,
No more a dreary aspect wear.
With morning light and evening shade ;
Demand successive songs of praise. nagy 07. 8 & 7s. M.
Hear us from thy bright abode,
Own their great and gracious God. 2 Health and every needful blessing
Are thy bounteous gifts alone;
Here we bend before thy throne. 3 Thee, with humble adoration,
Lord, we praise for mercies past;
May those mercies ever last. 1908. 11 & 8s. M. Episcopal Coll.
Thanksgiving and Praise in the Sanctuary. 1 BE joyful in God, all ye lands of the earth ;
O, serve him with gladness and fear; Exult in his presence with music and mirth;
With love and devotion draw near. 2 Jehovah is God, and Jehovah alone,
Creator and Ruler o’er all;
His sheep, and we follow his call. 3 O, enter his gates with thanksgiving and song ;
Your vows in his temple proclaim ;
4 For good is the Lord, inexpressibly good,
And we are the work of his hand;
And shall to eternity stand. 1709. L. P. M.
We bow before thy heavenly throne ;
Thy power we see, thy greatness own. 2 To thee, with grateful hearts, we raise The tribute of exulting praise,
Our country's Guardian, Guide, and Friend;
And e'er thy sheltering care extend.
The God of all Grace.
Awake, and sing thy mighty name :
Thy hand, from whence my being came. 2 Seasons and moons, still rolling round
In beauteous order, speak thy praise ;
To thee successive honors raise.
All to thy vast, unbounded love ;
And hope of nobler joys above. 4 Thus will I sing till nature cease,
Till sense and language are no more,
