2 Give to the Lord of lords renown,

The King of kings with glory crown:

His mercies ever shall endure,

When lords and kings are known no Inlore.

3 He built the earth, he spread the sky, And fix'd the starry lights on high: Wonders of grace to God belong, Repeat his mercies in your song.

4 He fills the sun with morning light,

He bids the moon direct the night:

His mercies ever shall endure,

When suns and moons shall shine no more.

5. He sent his Son with power to save From guilt, from darkness, and the grave: Wonders of grace to God belong, Repeat his mercies in your song.

6 Thro' this vain world he guides our feet,

And leads us to his heavenly seat:

His mercies ever shall endure,

When this vain world shall be no more.

187. T. 166.

HIGH in the heavens, eternal God, Thy goodness in full glory shines; Thy truth shall break thro’ every cloud [signs: That veils and darkens thy deFor ever firm thy justice stands, As mountains their foundations keep ; . Great are the wonders of thy hands; Thy judgments are a mighty deep.

2 Thy providence is kind and large, Both man and beast thy bounty share; The whole creation is thy charge, But man is thy peculiar care: My God, how excellent thy grace, Whence all our hope and comfort springs; The sons of Adam in distress Fly to the shadow of thy wings.

3 From the provisions of thy house We shall be fed with sweet repast;

There mercy, like a river, flows,
And we the living water taste:

Life, like a fountain rich and free,
Springs from thy presence, gra-
cious Lord;
And in thy light our souls shall see
The glories promis'd in thy word.

188.2k T. 214.

I WILL sing to my Creator, Unto God I'll render praise, Who by everything in nature Magnifies his tender grace: Nought but loving condescension Still inclines his faithful heart To support and take their part, Who pursue his blest intention: All things to their period tend, But his mercy has no end.

2 Yea, his Son his heart paternal
Freely did give up for me,

Me to save from death eternal
And from endless misery:

Depth of love past comprehension,
Whence can my weak spirit fetch
Thoughts profound enough to

reach

This unfathom'd condescension:

All things, &c.

3 His good Spirit's best direction He vouchsafes me in his word,

And his wings their kind protection
In my pilgrimage afford:

He endows my soul and spirit
With the light of living faith,
To o'ercome sin, world, & death,

And escape the hell I merit:
All things, &c.

4 My soul's welfare he advances,
For my body he doth care:
Aid and comfort he dispenses,
When I call on him by prayer:
When my natural strength is shrink-
In the time of utmost need, [ing,
He, my God, draws nigh with
speed,
And recovers me from sinking:
All things, &c.
5 As a hen is wont to gather
Her young brood beneath her
wings,
So has he, my heavenly Father,
Kept me safe from hurtful things:
Had my God withdrawn his favour,
Had not his protecting grace
Sav'd me in each trying case,
I should have been helped never:
All things, &c.
