3 The Lord himself will judge' his Saints ;

He treats his Servants as his Friends;
And when he hears their fad Complaints,

His Grace relieves their drooping Minds. 4 Thro' ev'ry Age the Lord declares

His Name, and breaks th' Oppreffor's Rod;
He gives his fuff'ring Servants Rest,

And will be known Tb' almighty God. 5 Bless ye the Lord who tafte his Love,

People and Priests exalt his Name :
Among his Saints he ever dwells;
His Church is his Jerufalem.
PSALM CXXXV. Fourth Version.

Watts.
Praise due to God, not to Idols.
WAKE, ye Saints: To praise your King

Your sweetest Passions raise,
Your pious Pleasure, while you fing,

Increasing with the Praise. :
2 Great is the Lord; and Works unknown

Are his divine Employ:
But still his Saints are near his Throne,

His Treasure and his Joy.
3 Heav'n, Earth, and Sea, confess his Hand;

He bids the Vapors rise ;
Light'ning and Storm at his Command

Sweep thro' the founding Skies.
4 All Pow'r that Gods or Kings have claim'd

Is found with him alone ;
But Heathen Gods should ne'er be nam'd

Where our Jebovah's known.
5 Which of the Stocks or Stones they trust

Can give them Show'rs of Rain?
In vain they worship glittring Dust,

And pray to Gold in vain.
Ú Their Gods have Tongues that cannot talk,

Such as their Makers gave :
l'heir Feet were ne'er design'd to walk,

Nor Hands have Pow'r to save.

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 chine Honors there.

Praises to your
For his Bleffings 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 afferts 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 sleep,
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 Farth,

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 :
For God will

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 :

And God will prove
Our constant Friend;
His boundless Love

Shall never end.
4 He spread the Ocean round

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.
5 Thro' Heav'n he doth display

His num'rous Hosts 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.
