And Sion's Sons with Joy resound

To Crowns of everlasting Joy. so let the Saints aloud rejoice,

And Sounds of Glory fill the Song;
All Day let Rapture tone their voice,
And Night the blissfal Strain prolong.

PSALM C.. First Version, MERRICK.

A Song of Praise


RAISE, O praise, the Nanc divine ;

Praise it at the hallow'd Shrine;
Let the Firmament on high
To its Maker's Praise reply :
Let his Acts, and Pow'r supreme,

To your Songs fuggest a Theme: 2 Be the Harp no longer mute;

Sound the Trumpet, touch the Lute;
Wake to Life each tuneful "String :
Bring the Pipe, the Timbrel bring;
Let the Organ in his Praise

Learn its loudest Note to raise;
3 And the Cymbal's varying Sound

From the vaulted Roof rebound;
All who vital Breath enjoy,
In his Praise that Breath employ,
And in one great Chorus join;
Praise, O praise the Name divine.

To Heav'n your Joy and Wonder raise,

While you rehearse his Deeds; But the great Work of saving Love

RAISE ye the Lord; let Praise employ

In his own Courts, your Songs of Joy;
The spacious Firmament around

Shall echo back the joyful Sound.
2 Recount his works in Strains divine ;

His wond'rous Works how bright they shine ?
Praise him for his almighty Deeds,

Whose Greatness all your Praise exceeds. 3 [Awake the Trumpet's piercing Sound,

To spread your sacred Pleasures round;
While sweeter Music tunes the Lute,

The warbling Harp, and breathing Flute. 4 Ye Virgin Train with Joy advance

To praise him in the graceful Dance;
To praise awake each tuneful String,
And to the solemn Organ sing.
Let the loud Cymbal founding high,
To softer, deeper Notes reply;
Harmonious let the Concert rise,
And bear the Rapture to the Skies.]

Attend, and join the blissful Choir;
But chiefly you who know his Word,
Adore, and love, and praise the Lord,

Arise, ye People, clap the Hand
As pants the Hart for cooling Springs

As press'd with Woe, to God I cry'd
As the good Shepherd gently leads
At God's Command the Morning Ray
At God's Command the wat'ry Deeps
At length by certain Proof 'eis plain
At length ye thoughtless Men your Wants
Awake, my Soul, awake my Tongue
Awake, my Soul, to Hymns of Praise
Awake to praife, my Soul, and fing,
Awake, ye Saints, to praise your King
