When on thy awful name we call,
And at thy feet submillive fall,

O! condescend co hear.
2 Far may thy glorious reign extend,

May rebels to thy sceptre bend,
And yield to sov’reign love :
May we take pleasure to fulfil
The facred dictates of thy will,

As angels do above. 3 From thy kind hand each temp'ral good,

Our raiment and our daily food,
In rich abundance come :
Lord, give us still a fresh supply,
If thou withhold thy hand, we die,

And fill the filent tomb.
4 Pardon our fins, O God! that rise,

And call for vengeance from the skies ;
And while we are forgiv’n,
Grant that revenge may never rest,
Nor malice harbour in that breast,

Which feels the love of heav'n.
5 Protect us in the dangerous hour,

And from the wily Tempter's pow's
0! set our spirits free ;
And if temptation should affail,
May mighty peace o'er all prevail,

And lead our hearts to thee.
6 Thine is the pow's, to thee belongs

The constant tribute of our songs,
All glory to thy name :

[ocr errors]

Let ev'ry creature join oar lays,
In one resounding act of praise
Thy wonders to proclaim.
HYMN CCX. L. M. [GIBBONS.]

Prayer for the Brethren.
IN thee

throu all fufficient God, The Springs of happiness arise ; That cheer this howling waste below,

And bless the mansions of the skies. 2 We the productions of thy pow'r,

And pensioners upon thy love ;
Look'to thy throne with longing eyes,

And wait thy ble{lings from above. 3 Protect the young from ev'ry snare ;

And let thy staff suppart the old ;
Relieve the poor ; nor let the rich,

Have all their heritage in gold.
4 Let joyful fouls fill taste thy grace;

Give to the mourners heav'nly joy ;
Sustain the strong; and quick revive
The with’ring plants from their decay.

The wonders of this day,
Our sabbath songs demand.
Auspicious mora ! thy blissful rays,

Bright seraphs hail in songs of praise.

Reluctant death refiga'd ;

The glorious prince of life,
His dark domains confin'd:
Th' angelic host around him bends ;

Amidst their shouts, the God asceads. 3 All hail, triumphant Lord,

While earth in humwe strains
Thy praise responsive sings :

Thro' endless years to live and reign.

TWhee, let my first offring rise,

Whofe fun creates the day ;

And I that hand adore.

For which relign'd I pray?
Give me to feel the grateful heart,

And without guilt be gay.
4. AMiction, should thy love intend,

As vice or folly's cure;
Patient to gain that gracious end,

And when I all my

life survey,
sustain at last..
