GOD AND HIS PERFECTIONS.
HYMN 1. L. M. [#]
1 THERE is a God-all nature speaks,
Through earth, and air, and sea, and skies:
2 The rising sun, serenely bright,
O'er the wide world's extended frame Inscribes, in characters of light,
His mighty Maker's glorious name.
3 The flowery tribes, all blooming, rise Above the weak attempts of art; Their bright, inimitable dyes
Speak sweet conviction to the heart.
4 Ye curious minds, who roam abroad,
HYMN 2. 6 l. L. M. [#]
Perfection of God.
1 THOU art, Almighty Lord of all, From everlasting still the same; Before thee dazzling seraphs fall,
And veil their faces in a flame,
The brightest stars of heaven afford
3 The sun himself is but a gleam,
A transient meteor from thy throne; And every frail and fickle beam,
That ever in creation shone,
4 But though thy brightness may create All worship from the hosts above, What most thy name must elevate
Is, that thou art a God of love,
HYMN 3. C. M. [#]
Omnipresence of God.
1 THERE's not a place in earth's vast round, In ocean deep, or air,
Where skill and wisdom are not found,— For God is everywhere.
2 Around, beneath, below, above, Wherever space extends,
There Heaven displays its boundless love, And power with mercy blends.
3 Then rise, my soul, and sing his name, And all his praise rehearse,
Who spread abroad earth's wondrous frame, And built the universe.
4 Where'er thine earthly lot is cast, His power and love declare;
Nor think the mighty theme too vast,—
HYMN 4. H. M.. [#]
Great First Cause.
1 THE first almighty Cause,
The Source of life, the Spring of springs,
2 Where'er we cast our eyes, With rapture we behold,
Below, or in the skies,
HYMN 5. L. P. M. [#]
God in Nature.
1 GREAT GOD, the heaven's well-ordered frame Declares the glories of thy name;
There thy rich works of wonder shine;
2 From night to day, from day to night, The dawning and the dying light
Lectures of heavenly wisdom read;
3 Yet their divine instructions run Wide as the circuit of the sun,
And every nation knows their voice ; The sun, in robes of splendour dressed, Breaks from the chambers of the east,
Moves round, and makes the earth rejoice.
