Thro' the whole Earth his Bounty shines,
And fills their Mouths with Good.
How flow chine Anger moves!
To chear the Souls he loves.
Thy Pow'r and Praise proclaim;
Delight to bless thy Name.
God kind and merciful.
Thou sov'reign Lord of all;
And raise the Poor that fall.
Or Virtue lies distreit
OF 3 The Lord supports our tott'ring Days,
And guides our giddy Youth;
And all his Words are Truth. 34 He knows the Pains his Servants feel,
He hears his Children cry,
His Grace is ever nigh.
From Men of Heart sincere;
Is join'd with holy Fear.
6 Our Lips fhall dwell upon his Praise,
And spread his Fame abroad;
The Honors of their God.
God's Perfections and Providence celebrated.
Replete with grateful Praise shall be ;
Shall learn from this thy mighty Deeds : 3 The Honor of thy Majesty,
I'll fing, how wonderful ! how high!
Thy Mercy's swift, thy Anger flow.
His Bounty falls from equal Hands;
P A USE.
Of his Dominion, Saints relate ;
As neither Space nor Time can bound. 6 Thy Hand supports the drooping Head;
Has rais’d the Low, the Hungry fed :
Attending thee, thy Bounty feasts.
And, like thyfelf, thy Works are pure :
and are fincere.
And saves them when he hears their Cries:
9 My Lips his Praises shall proclaim,
And all who live shall bless his Name :
my Pow'rs; Unweary'd Songs of sacred Praise
Shall fill the circling Hours. 2 Thy Name shall dwell upon my Tongue,
While Suns shall set and rise, And tune my everlasting Song,
When Time and Nature dies.
We wonder while we praise !
Or equal Honors raise?
Our noblest Songs adorn;
For Ages yet unborn.
The Wonders of thy Pow'r ;
And bid the World adore.
Shall spread thy Praises round; While thy tremendous Deeds inspire
To Notes of folemn Sound. 7 But sweetly flowing Strains shall tell
The Riches of thy Grace ; And Songs of grateful Joy reveal Thy spotless Righteousness.
PAUS e. 8 How full the Lord's Compassions flow!
His Wrath, how how to rise ! Swift Pardon smiles upon his Brow, And Guilt and Terror dies,
9 How large his tender Mercies are !
How wide his Pow'r extends ! On his Beneficence and Care
The Universe depends.
With all her num'rous Tongues,
And Love inspire their Songs.
The Glories of thy Reign ;
Shall fill the raptur'd Strain.
While earthly Thrones decay;
While Ages roll away.
The God of Love will raise ;
Shall rise and speak his Praife.
Thy Creatures lift their Eyes;
From thee receive Supplies.
Its inexhausted Store;
On thy sustaining Pow'r.
Is Providence divine;
PA V S E.
Shall find him ever near;
18 His pitying Ear attends the Cry
Of those who fear his Name; Their ev'ry Want he will supply,
And raise their finking Frame. 19 How blest in his protecting Care,
The Souls who love the Lord !
And die beneath his Sword.
Shall fill my Heart and Tongue ; Let all Creation bless his Name,
In one eternal Song.
CXLV. Seventh Version.
Resound the Praises of our heav'nly King;
The Wonders of redeeming Love ;
Till our united Voices reach the Seats divine;
Where thousand Tongues incessant cry,
Compassion to the Sons of Men.
Swell'd with celestial Music spreads the Regions round. 3 The Lord, though seated far beyond the Sky, Yet sees the Wretched with a pitying Eye;
His Eye beholds each anxious Care,
And hears the hungry Orphans Cry i
