INTRODUCTION AND CLOSE OF WORSHIP.
BOWRING, Humble Worship 1 WHEN before thy throne we kneel,
Filled with awe and holy fear,
All thy sacred presence near. 2 Check each proud and wandering thought
When on thy great name we call;
Thou, our God, art all in all. 3 Weak, imperfect creatures, we
In this vale of darkness dwell;
'Midst thy light ineffable.
Seek thy heaven-exalted throne;
Infinite and Holy One !
Help us to praise !
Ancient of days !
2 Come, thou all gracious Lord !
Our prayer attend !
On us descend !
3 Never from us depart;
Hence, evermore !
Love and adore.
S. M. MONTGOMAP.
Exhortation to Praise.
Ye people of his choice ;
With heart, and soul and voice. 2 Though high above all praise,
Above all blessing high,
And laud and magnify ? 3 O for the living flame
From his own altar brought,
And wing to heaven our thought! 4 There, with benign regard,
Our hymns he deigns to hear ; Though unrevealed to mortal sense,
The spirit feels him near.
5 Stand up and bless the Lord,
The Lord your God adore ;
Henceforth for evermore.
WATTS. Public Worship. 1 BEFORE Jehovah's awful throne,
Ye nations, bow with sacred joy, Know that the Lord is God alone:
He can create, and he destroy. 2 His sovereign power, without our aid,
Made us of clay, and formed us men; And when, like wandering sheep we strayed,
He brought us to his fold again, 3 We are his people ; we his care ;
Our souls, and all our mortal frame : What lasting honors shall we rear,
Almighty Maker, to thy name ? 4 We'll crowd thy gates, with thankful songs
High as the heaven our voices raise ; And earth, with her ten thousand tongues,
Shall fill thy courts with sounding praise. 5 Wide as the world is thy command;
Vast as eternity thy love; Firm as a rock thy truth shall stand, · When rolling years shall cease to move.
L. M. Tate & Brady.
Loud thanks to our Alinighty King;
2 Into his presence let us haste,
To thank him for his favors past
The praise that to his name belongs.
And bow with adoration there;
Watts “Horo amiable are thy Tabernacles, O Lord of Hosts.” 1 Great God! attend, while Zion sings
The joy that from thy presence springs,
Exceeds a thousand days of mirth. 2 Might I enjoy the meanest place
Within thy house, O God of grace,
Should tempt my feet to leave thy door. 3 God is our Sun- he makes our day; God is our shield — he guards our way; All needful grace he will bestow,
And crown that grace with glory too. 4 O God! our king, whose sovereign sway
The glorious hosts of heaven obey,
EDNESTON The Lord's Day. 1 When the worn spirit wants repose,
And sighs her God to seek,
