7 How terrible thy Glories be!
How bright thine Armies shine!;
Or Truth compar'd to Thine!
On thy-supporting Hand ;
Move round at thy Command.
And rule the boilt'rous Deep;
The rolling Billows seep.
And the dark World of Hell ;,
When Egypt durft rebel!
Yet wondrous is thy Grace;
Invite us near thy Face.
12 BLEST are the Souls that hear and know
The Gospel's joyful Sound;
And Light their Steps surround. 13 Their Joy shall bear their Spirits up
Nor Satan dares condemn.
14 The Lord, our Glory and Defence,
Strength and Salvation gives : .Ifrael, thy KING for ever reigns, Thy God for ever lives.
PART IV. 15 HEAR what the LORD in Vision said,
And made his Mercy known:
“On my Almighty So». 16 “ High fhall He reign on David's Throne,
« My People's better KING;
« And Hill new Subjects bring. 17 « My Truth shall guide Him in his Way,
«With Mercy by his Şide; “ While in my Name, thro' Earth and Sea,
“He shall in Triumph ride. 18 “My first-born Son, array'd in Grace,
“'At my Right-Hand shall fit; « Beneath Him Angels know their Place,
“And Monarchs at his Feet. 19 “My Cov’nant stands for ever fast;
" My Promifes are strong: aft, • Firm as the Heay'ns his Throne Thall “ His Seed endure as long."
PART V. 20 « YET (faith the LORD) if David's Race,
« The Children of my Son, “ Should break my Laws, abufe my Grace,
“ And tempt mine Anger down ;
21 “ Their Sins I'd våfit with the Rod,
“And make their Folly smart;
“ Nor from my Truth depart.
But keep my Grace in Mind:
« Eternal Truth shall bind.
“ And pledg’d my Holiness
($(To David and his Race.
“And spread from Sea to Sea,
“ To give the Nations Day1
i« His Kingdom shall endure ;
1 PART VI..
Short from the Cradle to the Grayé :
With Skill to fly, or Pow'r to save ?
“ For Sickness, Sorrow, and the Duft ?”
Are not thy Servants Day by Day 1
And all his Seed, a heáinly Crown?
But Flesh and Sense indulge Despair :
And find a Resurrection there.
ever bleffèd be the LORD!!!:))
For all their Toil, Reproach, and Pain;
And each repeat'a loud Amen.
Y grateful Tongue, immortal King,
Thy Mercy shall for ever fing;
In Songs of grateful Joy proclaim. [Name 3 Strong is thine Arm i thy steadfast Will
Thy Hands with, sure Effect fulfil;
While Justice, 'mid th' ethereal Plain,
Thy Steps precede, thy Path prepare. 4 O Blest, who know that sacred Sound
Which spreads the joyful Tidings round,
And ev'ry Beam declare then thine. 5
How shall they joy from Day to Day,
P. ART II.
The Truth and Mercy of the LORD:
Like Heav'n establish'd by his Hand. 7 Thus to his Son He sware and said,
« With Thee my Cov'nant first is made; « In Thee shall dying Sinners live;
“ Glory and Grace are Thine to give. 8 « Be Thou my PROPHET, Thoumy Priest;
“ 'Thy Children shall be ever bleft; “.Thou art my chosen King: Thy Throne “ Shall stand eternal like my own.
