HOW

L.M. 2 Great is our Lord, and of great power.

Psa. cxlvii. 5. 1

PRAISE ye the Lord ; 'tis good to
Our hearts and voices in His praise;
His nature and His works invite
To make this duty our delight.

C.M. 3 Canst thou by searching find out God ?

JOB xi. 7. 1 COW shall I praise the Eternal

The infinite Unknown? (God, Who can ascend His high abode,

Or venture near His throne ?
2 The great Invisible! He dwells

Concealed in dazzling light;
But His all-searching eye reveals

The secrets of the night.
3 He knows no shadow of a change,

Nor alters His decrees;
Firm as a rock His truth remains,

To guard His promises.
4 Justice, upon the eternal throne,

Maintains the rights of God; While Mercy sends her pardons down, Bought with a Saviour's blood.
