4. Fain would I trace the immortal way
That leads to courts of endless day,
1. High in the heavens, eternal God,
Thy goodness in full glory shines;
That vails and darkens Thy designs. 2. Forever 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 share;
But saints are Thy peculiar care. 4. My God, how excellent Thy grace!
Whence all our hope and comfort springs; The sons of Adam, in distress,
Fly to the shadow of Thy wings, 5. From the provisions of Thy house
We shall be fed with sweet repast;
like a river flows,
Springs from the presence of my Lord,
The glories promised in Thy word.
1. JEHOVAH reigns, His throne is high,
His robes are light and majesty;
2. His terrors keep the world in awe,
His justice guards His holy law,
His truth and promise seal the grace. 3. Through all His works what wisdom shines !
He baffles Satan's deep designs ;
is sovereign to fulfill The noblest counsels of His will. 4. Thus glorious, will He condescend To be
friend? Then let my songs with angels join, Heaven is secure, if God is mine.
1. When all Thy mercies, O my God,
My rising soul surveys,
In wonder, love, and praise.
Thy tender care bestowed,
From whom those comforts flowed,
With heedless step I ran,
And led me up to man.
My daily thanks employ;
That tastes those gifts with joy.
Thy goodness I'll pursue;
The glorious theme renew.
6. Through all eternity, to Thee
A joyful song I'll raise :
To utter all my praise !
1. Soon as I heard
I'll seek my Father's face.
In a distressing day.
Leave me to want, or die;
Had not my soul believed
Nor was my hope deceived.
And keep your courage up;
And far exceed your hope.
life His care,
How various and divine !
And bright as heaven they shine. 2. He to eternal glory calls,
And leads the wondrous way
3. The songs of everlasting years
That mercy shall attend,
To joys that never end.
1. We love Thee, Lord, and we adore;
Now is Thine arm revealed;
Our bulwark and our shield.
2. We fly to our eternal Rock,
And find a sure defense;
And draw salvation thence.
3. When God, our leader, shines in arms,
What mortal heart can bear
The lightning of His spear?
And angels in array,
And swift as flames obey.
Whole armies are dismayed;
For His own children's sake;
Shall of His care partake.
1. That man, in life wherever placed,
Has happiness in store,
Nor learns their guilty lore;
2. Nor from the seat of scornful pride
Casts forth his eyes abroad,
Still walks before his God.
Which by the streamlet grow,
And firm the root below.
Shall to the ground be cast,
Before the sweeping blast.
Will give them peace and joy;
Will utterly destroy.
1. How are Thy servants blest, O Lord,
How sure is their defense !
Their help, omnipotence.
Supported by Thy care,
And breathe in tainted air.
3. When by the dreadful tempest borne
High on the broken wave,
Nor impotent to save.
Obedient to Thy will ;
At Thy command is still.
