4 Oh, wondrous knowledge, deep and high;
5 So let Thy grace surround me still,
LORD, Thou hast search'd and seen me
Thine eye commands with piercing view My rising and my resting hours, My heart and flesh, with all their powers. 2 Could I so false, so faithless prove, To quit Thy service and Thy love; Where, Lord, could I Thy presence shun, Or from Thy dreadful glory run?
3 The veil of night is no disguise,
No screen from Thine all-searching eyes; Thy hand can seize Thy foes as soon Through midnight shades as blazing noon. 4 Oh, may these thoughts possess my breast, Where'er I rove, where'er I rest! Nor let my weaker passions dare Consent to sin, for God is there.
To earth, and all ye heavens, rejoice!
2 The Lord is King! who then shall dare
3 The Lord is King! exalt your strains: Ye saints, your God, your Father reigns; One Lord one empire all secures:
He reigns, and life and death are yours.
4 Oh, when His wisdom can mistake, His might decay, His love forsake, Then may His children cease to sing, "The Lord omnipotent is King!"
Y God, how wonderful Thou art,
2 Yet I may love Thee too, O Lord,
For Thou hast stooped to ask of me
3 No earthly father loves like Thee,
Bears and forbears, as thou hast done
4 My God, how wonderful Thou art,
On Thee I stay my trusting heart,
8s & 6s.
M How bright on high its glories blaze,
God, Thy boundless love I praise,
How sweetly bloom below!
It streams from Thine eternal throne;
2 It robes in cheerful green the ground,
3 But in Thy gospel see it shine,
There faith, bright cherub, points the way To realms of everlasting day,
And opens all her heaven.
4 Then let the love that makes me blest,
And all my thoughts and passions tend
8s & 7s.
OD is love; His mercy brightens
2 Chance and change are busy ever;
But His mercy waneth never;
3 Even the hour that darkest seemeth,
He with earthly cares entwineth
TRINITY OF GOD.
ATHER of heaven, whose love profound
2 Almighty Son, incarnate Word,
3 Eternal Spirit, by whose breath,
Jehovah! Father, Spirit, Son!
MATHER, in Whom we live,
2 O Thou incarnate Word,
Let all Thy ransomed race
3 Spirit of holiness,
Let all Thy saints adore
4 The grace on man bestow'd,
Ye heavenly choirs, proclaim,
Fimmortal praise we give;
MATHER of glory! to Thy name
Who dost an act of grace proclaim,
2 Immortal honor to the Son
Who makes Thine anger cease;
3 To thine almighty Spirit be
Whose influence brings us near to Thee,
