3 Diffufing Life, his Influence spreads,
And Health and Plenty smile around;
Are with a thousand Blessings crown'd. 4. Almighty Goodness, Pow'r divine
The Fields and verdant Meads display;
With various Charms profusely gay.
In wide diffufive Plenty grows;
In Streams sweet winding, gently flows.
The vegetable Race are fed ;
Their Maker's Bounty smiling spread. 7 The flow'ry Tribes, all blooming, rise
Above the weak Attempts of Art ;
Speak sweet Conviction to the Heart. 8 Ye curious Minds, who roam abroad,
And trace Creation's Wonders o'er,
PSALM CIV. Eighth Version. BARBAULT.
Let thy Praise our Tongues employ; 2 For the Blessings of the Field,

All that spring with bounteous Hand

And made the Blefing fure: Gentiles the antient Promise read,
And find his Truth endure, 4 " Thy Seed shall make all Nations bleft,"
Said the almighty Voice, ! And Canaan's Land shall be their Reft,
“ The Type of heav'nly Joys.
* Shall soon redress the Wrong;
“ Shall know their God is strong." 6 Then let the World forbear its Rage,
Nor put the Church in Fear;
And be th' Almighty's Care.
Strength and Safety in God alone.
Obedient to thy Call,
To seek the Presence of thy Grace,
My Strength, my Life, my All. 2 All I can with is thine to give's
My God, I ask thy Love, That greatest Bliss I can receive,
That Bliss of Heav'n above. 3 To Heav'n my restless Heart aspiress:
O for a quick’ning Ray, T'invigorate my faint Desires,
And cheer the tiresome Way. 4 My Guardian, my almighty Friend, 13 On thee
Soul would rest; On thee alone my Hopes depend,
Be near, and I am blest.
