THE

COLLECTION of HYMNS, &c.

HY MN.

CY HALL the angelic host on high

Eternal anthems sing?
w And all the mute creation try
To praise their heav'nly king?

II.
Shall every infect, bird, and brute

Confess his boundless sway;
And man, who's blest with speech, be mute,
No duteous homage pay?

III.
Ingratitude avaunt! be gone!

My muse shall raise her voice,
When heay'n inspires, and leads her on,
'Tis duty and 'tis choice.

IV.
Look round, O man! survey this globe,

Speak of the fiat pow'r;
See, nature gives a diff'rent robe
To ev'ry herb and flow'r!

V.
See ! various beings fill the air,

And people earth and sea;
What grateful changes form the year,
How constant night and day.

VI.
Next raise thine eye, the vast expanse

A pow'r unbounded shows;

[ocr errors]

See, round the fun the planets dance,

And various worlds compofe.

VII.

Then turn into thyself, O man!

With wonder view thy soul!
Confess his pow'r that laid each plan,
And still directs the whole.

VIII.
And let obedience to his laws

Thy gratitude proclaim,
To him the first almighty cause,
JEHOVAH is his name.

IX.
Beyond all worlds enthron'd on high,

Archangels him adore ;
Glory to him tlie seraphs cry,

Glory for evermore.

HYMN. By Mrs. Rowe.

THE glorious armies of the sky

1 To thee, O mighty King! Triumphant anthems consecrate, And Hallelujahs sing.

II.
But still their most exalted flights

Fall vastly short of thee:
How distant then must human praise
From thy perfections be?

III.
Yet how, my God, shall I refrain,

When, to my ravish'd sense,
Each creature in their various ways
Display thy excellence ?

IV.
The active lights that shine above,

In their eternal dance,
Reveal their skilful Maker's praise

With flent elegance.
