7 Blind are their Eyes, their Ears are deaf,

Nor hear when Mortals pray;
Mortals, who wait for their Relief,

Are blind and deaf as they.
S O Britain, know thy living God,

Serve him with Faith and Fear;
He makes thy Churches his Abode,

And claims thine Honors there.
PSALM CXXXVI. First Version. MERRICK.

The Perfections and Providence of God.
IFT your Voice, and thankful fing

Praises to your heav'nly King;
For his Blessings far extend,

And his Mercy knows no End. 2 Be the Lord your only Theme,

Who of Gods is God supreme ;
He to whom all Lords beside

Bow the Knee, and vail their Pride ; 3 Who asserts his juft Command

By the Wonders of his Hand;
He whose Wisdom thron'd on high

Built the Mansions of the Sky; 4 He, who bade the wat'ry Deep

Under Earth's Foundation neep,
And the Orbs that gild the Pole

Through the boundless Æther roll; 5 Thee, O Sun, whose pow'rful Ray

Rules the Empire of the Day;
You, O Moon and Stars, whose Light

Gilds the Darkness of the Night. 6 He with Food sustains, O Fartb,

All who claim from thee their Birth;
For his Blessings far extend,

And his Mercy knows no End.
7 Lift your Voice, and thankful fing

Praise to Heav'n's eternal King;
For his Blessings far extend,
And his Mercy knows no End.

O God the mighty Lord,

Your joyful Thanks repeat;
To him due Praise afford,
As good as he is great :

Our constant Friend;
His boundless Love

Shall never end.

All other Gods obey,
Whom earthly Kings adore,
This grateful Homage pay ;

Amazing Works are wrought;
The Heav'ns by his Command
Were to Perfection brought :

Our constant Friend;
His boundless Love

Shall never end.

About the spacious Land;
And made the rising Ground
Above the Waters stand :

And God will prove
Our constant Friend;
His boundless Love

Shall never end.

His num'rous Hofts of Light ;
The Sun to rule by Day,
The Moon and Stars by Night:

And God will prove
Our constant Friend;
His boundless Love
Shall never end.

On which all Creatures live :
