Fire, Hail, and Snow,
He bids them, blow.
By ev'ry Beast,
His Name be blest. 6 Let all of royal Birth,
With those of humble Frame,
In this Design
With Children join. 7 United Zeal be shown,
His wond'rous Fame to raise,
Earth's utmost Ends
PSALM CXLVIII. Fourth Version. Watts.
With Heav'n, and Earth, and Seas,

2 Thou Sun with dazzling Rays,
And Moon that rules the Night,
His Pow'r declare,
In liquid Air.
In glorious Order stand,
He spake the Word,
To praise the Lord. ..
In unknown Ages past,
In diff'rent Ways
And Monsters of the Deep,
From Sea and Shore
Their Maker's Pow'r.
Praise ye th' almighty Lord,
When Light'nings shine,
Ye Mountains near the Skies,
Beasts wild and tame,
Exalt his Name.
rule us here, His heav'nly Honors fing :
Nor let the Dream
His Pow'r supreme.
Wide as he reigns
In endless Strains.
While Earth and Sky
His Honors high.
OUD Hallelujahs to the Lord
From ev'ry World where Creatures dwell: Let Heav'n begin the folemn Word,
And ev'ry Note with Rapture swell. 2 The Lord ! how absolute he reigns !
Angelic Hosts his Praise declare,
3 High on a Throne his Glories dwell,
An awful Throne of hining Bliss:
How dark thy Beams compar'd to his. 4 Awake, ye Tempests, and his Fame
In Sounds of solemn Praise declare ;
Fill ev'ry gencler Breeze of Air.
To join their Praise with blazing Fire;
In this eternal Song conspire.
Vallies lie low before his Eye;
Rise tuneful to the neighb'ring Sky. 7 Ye stubborn Oaks, and fately Pines,
Bend your high Branches and adore :
The Lamb must bleat, the Lion roar.
Nature demands a Song from you:
9 Mortals, can you refrain your Tongue,
When Nature all around you fings?
From humble Swains, and lofty Kings! jo Wide as his vast Dominion lies
Make the Creator's Name be known ;
And found it lofty as his Throne. u Jehovah, 'tis a glorious Word,
O may it dwell on ev'ry Tongue !
of the Wonders of his Love dless Grace with Joy record : all below and all above, Hallelujahs to the Lord.
ALM CXLVIII. Sixth Version. Watts.
To praise th' eternal God;
And fixt their wond'rous Frame;
And ever speak his Name.
Or fall in Show'rs of Snow,
His Pow'r and Glory show.
Agree to praise the Lord,
To execute his Word.
His Honors be expreft ;
Should sing his Praises best. 1
PAUSE I. 7
Let Earth and Ocean know
They owe their Maker Praise;.
And Monsters of the Seas.
Let his high Praise resound,
And Vales and Fields around.
