1. O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness, Bow down be-fore him, his glory proclaim;
2 Low at his feet lay thy burden of carefulness, | Truth in its beauty, and love in its tenderness, High on his heart he will bear it for thee, Comfort thy sorrows, and answer thy prayer
These are the offerings to lay on his shrine.
Guiding thy steps as may best for thee be.
3 Fear not to enter his courts in the slenderness Of the poor wealth thou wouldst reckon as thine:

1. Be joy-ful in God, all ye lands of the earth; O serve him with gladness and fear! tim angry out
4 These, though we bring them in trembling and fearfulness,
He will accept for the Name that is dear; Mornings of joy give for evenings of tearfulness, Trust for our trembling, and hope for our fear.
2 Jehovah is God, and Jehovah alone,
8 O, enter his gates with thanksgiving and
Your vows in his temple proclaim;
His praise with melodious accordance prolong,
And bless his adorable name.
4 For good is the Lord, inexpressibly good,

1. High in the heavens, e ternal God, Thy goodness in full glo-ry shines;
muralast at alumi bena
2 Forever firm thy justice stands,
As mountains their foundations keep; Wise as the wonders of thy hands,
Thy judgments are a mighty deep. 3 O God, how excellent thy grace,
Whence all our hope and comfort spring! The sons of Adam, in distress,
Fly to the shadow of thy wing. 4 In the provisions of thy house
We still shall find a sweet repast;
And brings salvation to our taste.
Thy truth shall break through every cloud That vails thy just and wise designs.

Nor let a murmuring thought arise; His ways are just, his counsels wise. 2 In realms of cloudless light he dwells, Performs his work, the cause conceals; And though his footsteps are unknown, Judgment and truth support his throne. 3 In heaven and earth and air and seas
He executes his firm decrees;

Mercy withholds thy lifted hand. Each evening shows thy tender love, Each rising morn thy plenteous grace; Thy wakened wrath doth slowly move, Thy willing mercy flies apace. 3 To thy benign, indulgent care,
Father, this light, this breath, we owe; And all we have, and all we are,
From thee, great Source of being, flow. 4 Thrice Holy! thine the kingdom is, The power omnipotent is thine; And when created nature dies, Thy never-ceasing glories shine.

1 ETERNAL Power, whose high abode Becomes the grandeur of a God, Infinite lengths beyond the bounds Where stars revolve their little rounds!
2 Earth, from afar, hath heard thy fame, And worms have learned to lisp thy name; But O! the glories of thy mind Leave all our soaring thoughts behind. 3 God is in heaven, and men below;
Be short our tunes, our words be few; A solemn reverence checks our songs, And praise sits silent on our tongues.
1. God is the refuge of his saints When storms of sharp dis-tress in-vade:
CARL P. E. BACH.
3 Our midnight is thy smile withdrawn,
4 Lord of all life, below, above,
Whose light is truth, whose warmth is love,
We ask no luster of our own.
Grant us thy truth to make us free,
One holy light, one heavenly flame!
Oliver Wendell Holmes.

1 LORD! thou hast searched and seen me
Thine eye commands with piercing view
My heart and flesh, with all their powers.
My thoughts, before they are my own,
5 O, may these thoughts possess my breast
1. Eternal depth of love divine, In Jesus, God with us, dis-played, How bright thy #
beaming glories shine! How wide thy heal – ing streams are spread, How wide thy healing streams are spread!

2 With whom dost thou delight to dwell?
3 The dictates of thy sovereign will
Lo, all we are, to thee we give.
4 To thy sure love, thy tender care,
1 O GOD, how great thy glory is!
Thy wondrous ways, O who can know?
Greatness whose undiminished ray,

1 ERE mountains reared their forms sub
Or heaven and earth in order stood,
From everlasting thou art God.
With thee are as a fleeting day;
At once their various scenes display. 3 But our brief life's a shadowy dream,
A passing thought, that soon is o'er, That fades with morning's earliest beam,
And fills the musing mind no more. 4 To us, O Lord, the wisdom give,
Each passing moment so to spend That we at length with thee may live, Where life and bliss shall never end.
301, 336, 104.
1 GOD is our refuge and defense,
What foe can make our souls afraid?
When earth and heaven are flea away. 2 Yea, though the earth's foundations rock, 3 Unchangeable, all-perfect Lord, And mountains down the gulf be hurled,
Essential life's unbounded sea,
His people smile amid the shock;
Whate'er thy will decrees, is done; Thy wisdom, equal to thy might,
Ten thousand worlds on nothing rest; All living things are in his hand,
Only to thee, O God, is known!
And he who trusts his word is blest.

1. God of my life, whose gracious power Through varied scenes my soul hath led,
168, 212, 343.
2 In all my ways thy hand I own,
And still direct my paths to thee.
The servant of a gracious Lord.
But thou art greater than
Proclaim the Infinite Unknown.
2 Thy voice ordained the rolling spheres,
Through all these spacious works of
Thy being no succession knows,
And all thy vast designs are one.
4 A glance of thine runs through the globe, Rules the bright worlds, and moves their frame;
Of light thou form'st thy dazzling robe;
5 How shall polluted mortals dare
To sing thy glory or thy grace?
And see but shadows of thy face.
47, 514, 366.
1 GOD is the name my soul adores,
Both heaven and earth, with all their 2 And when thy purity we share,
Thy brightest glory we declare;
6 Who can behold the blazing light?
Who can approach consuming flame? None but thy wisdom knows thy might; None but thy word can speak thy name.
301, 101, 212.
1 HOLY as thou, O Lord, is none;
3 Still restless nature dies and grows,
From change to change thy creatures 4 Thy power unequaled we confess,
Established on the rock of peace;
