5 Wind, hail, and flaming fire,
Agree to praise the Lord,
When ye in dreadful storms conspire
To execute his word.

6 By all his works above
His honours be expressed;
But saints that taste his saving love,
Should sing his praises best.

148 SIXTH PART. S. M.

ET earth and ocean know
They owe their Maker praise:
Praise him ye watery worlds below,
And monsters of the seas.

2. From mountains near the sky,

Let his high praise resound;
From humble shrubs, and cedars high,

And vales and fields around.

3 Ye lions of the wood,
And tamer beasts that graze,
Ye live upon his daily food,
And he expects your praise.

4 Ye birds of lofty wing,
On high his praises bear,
Or sit on flowery boughs, and sing
Your Maker's glory there.

5 Ye reptile myriads, join
To exalt his glorious name;
And flies, in beauteous forms that shine,
His wondrous skill proclaim.

6 By all the earth-born race,
His honours be expressed;
But saints that know his heavenly grace,
Should learn to praise him best.

148 SEVENTH PART. S. M.

ONARCHS of wide command, Praise ye th' eternal King; Judges, adore that sovereign hand,

Whence all your honours spring.

2 Let vigorous youth engage
To sound his praises high ;
While growing babes, with withering age,
Their feeble voices try.

3 United zeal be shown
His wondrous fame to raise;
God is the Lord; his name alone
Deserves our endless praise.

4 Let nature join with art,
And all pronounce him blest;
But saints, that dwell so near his heart,
Should sing his praises best.

149 C. M.

Aus. ye that love the Lord, rejoice,
And let your songs be new ;

Amidst the church, with cheerful voice
His later wonders show.

2 The Jews, the people of his grace,
Shall their Redeemer sing ;
And gentile nations join the praise,
While Sion owns her King.

3 The Lord takes pleasure in the just,
Whom sinners treat with scorn;
The meek, that lie despised in dust,
Salvation shall adorn.

4 Saints shall be joyful in their King, E’en on a dying bed;

And like the souls in glory sing, For God shall raise the dead. 5 Then his high praise shall fill their tongues, Their hand shall wield the sword : And vengeance shall attend their songs, The vengeance of the Lord.

6 When Christ his judgment-seat ascends,
And bids the world appear,
Thrones are prepared for all his friends,
Who humbly loved him here.
7 Then shall they rule with iron rod,
Nations that dared rebel,
And join the sentence of their God,
On tyrants doomed to hell.

8 The royal sinners, bound in chains,
New triumph shall afford:
Such honour for the saints remains;
Praise ye, and love the Lord.

150 FIRST PART. C. M.

N God’s own house pronounce his praise, His grace he there reveals; To heaven your joy and wonder raise, For there his glory dwells.

2 Let all your sacred passions move,
While you rehearse his deeds;
But the great work of saving love
Your highest praise exceeds.
3 All that have motion, life, and breath,
Proclaim your Maker blest;
Yet when my voice expires in death,
My soul shall praise him best.

150 SECOND PART. L. M. PRA. ye the Lord ; all nature join

In work and worship so divine; Let heaven and earth unite, and raise High hallelujahs to his praise.

2. While realms of joy, and worlds around,
Their hallelujahs high resound,
Let saints below and saints above,
Exulting sing redeeming love.

3. As instruments well tuned and strung,
We’ll praise the Lord with heart and tongue;
While life remains we’ll loud proclaim
High hallelujahs to his name.

4 Beyond the grave, in nobler strains,
When freed from sorrow, sin, and pains,
Eternally the church will raise
High hallelujahs to his praise.
