4 The starry arch in grandeur glows,
Through all its ample round:
8, 7s. A call to praise the Lamb of God. 1 SHOUT to God, in strains immortal!
All the holy angels sing :
Each a grateful tribute bring.
Sing the wonders of his grace;
Sealing all the human race.
Piercing to the lofty sky;
Once for sinners born to die !
Raise to him the grateful song: Angels share the bliss before us,
Ånd the anthem still prolong.
Evening Hymn. 1 To God we'll raise an evening song,
Each accent shall record his care; "Tis he that guides our feet along,
And keeps our souls from every snare. From the first dawn of morning light,
His watchful eye our path attends ; And in returning shades of night,
Is still the same, our heavenly Friend.
2 He knows our wants, relieves our fears,
And satisfies each soul with bread;
pours his blessings on our heads. He saves us from the tempter's snare,
And crowns us with his love and grace; Makes every ransom'd soul his care,
And smiles on all the human race.
3 O come, before his altar bend,
And loud proclaim his matchless love: Let grateful incense high ascend,
To our almighty Friend above.
Fearless of danger close our eyes;
To soar in worlds above the skies.
The Majesty of God. 1 THE Lord descended from above,
And bow'd the heavens most high, And underneath his feet he cast
The darkness of the sky. 2 On cherubim and seraphim
Full royally he rode,
Came flying all abroad.
Their fury to restrain;
For evermore shall reign.
Divine aid implored. 1 THINE influence, mighty God! is felt,
Through nature's ample round; In heaven, on earth, through air and skies,
Thy energy is found.
To form our hearts anew;
And thy salvation shew!
To guide our doubtful way;
Ănd make a glorious day.
We'll do and bear thy will; That grace shall make each burden light, And
every murmur still. 5 Cheer'd by thy smiles, we 'll fearless tread
The gloomy path of death;
To Thee resign our breath.
C. M. Providence kind and bountiful. 1 THY kingdom, Lord, for ever stands,
While earthly thrones decay; And time submits to thy commands
While ages roll away. 2 Thy sovereign bounty freely gives
Its unexhausted store; And universal nature lives On thy sustaining power.
3 Holy and just are all thy ways;
Thy goodness is divine;
Of power and mercy shine.
Shall fill cach heart and tongue : Let all creation bless thy name
In one eternal song.
429. C. M. Supplication for the Divine blessing on the Word. 1 THY gracious aid, great God! impart,
To give thy word success;
And deep its truths impress.
That leads to joys on high,
And love shall never die.
430. L. M.
Desire of Wisdom and Obedience. 1 TEACH us, O teach us, Lord! thy way;
That to our life's remotest day,
Our feet thy heavenly paths may tread. 2 Inform’d by Thee, with sacred awe
Our hearts shall meditate thy law;
To Thee a pure obedience yield. 3 Give us to know thy will aright,
Thy will our glory and delight;
4 O turn from vanity each eye!
To us thy quick’ning strength supply;
C. M. Prospect of the universal Spread of spiritual Blessings. 1 THE common Parent, Lord of all,
Who sits enthron'd above,
And with impartial love.
Sound all the earth abroad;
Their Saviour and their God!
Such his eternal will,
The spacious earth shall fill.
So richly scatter'd here;
Shall see, adore, and fear.
P. M. 10 s. 11 s.
Hymn of Praise. i O PRAISE ye the Lord, prepare a new song,
And let all his saints in full concert join :
And show forth his praises with music divine. 2 Let praise to the Lord, who made us, ascend,
Let each grateful heart be glad in its King :
