No earthly tongue can tell.]

Be found upon your tongue.
Pursue the works of peace;
And set your souls at ease.
His ears attend their cry;

To make thy wonders known; In their favation I'll rejoice,
And bless thee for my own.

And pities them with tears.
Bleft and belov'd of God,
Paid his own deareft blood.

Thy goodness in full glory shines;
Thát veils and darkens thy designs.. 2 For ever firm thy justice stands,
As mountains their foundations keep;
Thy judgments are a mighty deep. 3 Thy providence is kind and large,
Both man and beast thy bounty Mare;
But faints are thy peculiar care.
Whence all our hope and comfort spriogs:
Fly to the shadow of thy wings.
We shall be fed with sweet repast;
And brings falvation to our taste. 6 Life, like a fountain rich and free,
Springs from the presence of my Lord;
The glories promis'd in thy word.
