1 UP to the Lord, who reigns on high, And views the nations from afar, Let everlasting praises fly,
And tell how large his bounties are. 2 He over-rules all mortal things,
And manages our mean affairs:
He hears us in the mournful hour,
4 Oh! could our thankful hearts devise
To the third heaven our songs should rise,
Exhortation to Praise.
1 STAND up, and bless the Lord,
Stand up, and bless the Lord your God,
*2 Though high above all praise,
Who would not fear his holy name,
3 Oh! for the living flame
From his own altar brought,
4 God is our strength and song,
And his salvation ours;
Then be his love in Christ proclaimed,
5 Stand up, and bless the Lord,-
Stand up, and bless his glorious name,
Men not comparable with God.
1 SHALL the vile race of flesh and blood.
2 Behold! he puts his trust in none
3 But how much meaner things are they,
Praise to God.
1 PRAISE, everlasting praise, be paid
2 Praise to the goodness of the Lord,
3 Whence, then, should doubts and fears arise?
Goodness of God seen in his Works. 1 HAIL, great Creator, wise and good! To thee our songs we raise ;
Nature, through all her various scenes,
2 At morning, noon, and evening mild,
3 Thy glory beams in every star
4 The lofty hill-the humble lawn,
5 And while, in all thy wondrous ways,
Oh! may our hearts, Great God! be led
Wisdom and Knowledge of God.
1 AWAKE, my tongue! thy tribute bring
2 How vast his knowledge-how profound!
3 Through each bright world above, behold
4 But in redemption, Oh! what grace!-
Sovereignty and Dominion of God.
1 KEEP silence, all created things!
My soul stands trembling, while she sings
2 Life, death, and hell, and worlds unknown, Hang on his firm decree;
He sits on no precarious throne,
Nor borrows leave to be.
3 Chained to his throne, a volume lies,
4 His providence unfolds his book,
5 My God! I would not long to see
6 In thy fair book of life and grace,
Recorded in some humble place,
Faithfulness of God.
1 THE promises I sing,
Which sovereign love hath spoke:
Nor will th' eternal King
His words of grace revoke:
They stand secure
And steadfast still;
Not Zion's hill
Abides so sure.
2 The mountains melt away,
When once the Judge appears i
And sun and moon decay,
That measure mortal years;
But still the same,
3 Their harmony shall sound
Mid all the shock
Of that dread scene,
I stand serene;
Thy word, my rock.
The glories of Redemption.
1 FATHER! how wide thy glory shines!
Known through the earth by thousand signs,-
2 Those mighty orbs proclaim thy power,
And on the wings of every hour,
3 But when we view thy strange design
Where vengeance and compassion join,
4 Here the whole Deity is known;
Nor dares a creature guess,
Which of the glories brightest shone,
Now the full glories of the Lamb
Adorn the heavenly plains:
Bright seraphs learn Immanuel's name,
6 Oh! may I bear some humble part,
Wonder and joy shall tune my heart,
The God of Mercy and Justice.
