Ten thousand thousand charms unfold; Girded with majesty and might;

Earth, air, and mighty seas combine The world, created by His hands,

To speak His wisdom all divine, Still on its firm foundation stands.

4 But in redemption, ( what grace! 2 But ere this spacious world was made, Its wonders, O what thought can trace! Or had its first foundation laid,

Here wisdom shines forever bright--Thy throne eternal ages stond,

Praise Him, my soul, with sweet de Thyself the ever-living God.

light. 3 Like floods the angry nations rise,

And aim their rage against the skies ; 9
Vain floods that aim their rage so high!
At Thy rebuke the billows die.

1 PRAISE, (verlasting praise, be paid

To Him who earth's foundation laid; 4 Forever shall Thy throne endure,

Praise to the God whose strong decrees Thy promise stand forever sure;

Sway the creation as Ile please. And everlasting holiness Becomes the dwelling of Thy grace. 2 Praise to the goodness of the Lord,

Who rules His people by His word; 7

And there, as strong as His decrees, Psalm 97.

He sets His kindest promises.
I JEHOVAH reigns; His throne is high,

His robes are light and majesty; 3 O for a strong, a lasting faith,
His glory shines with beams so bright To credit what the Almighty saith;
No mortal can sustain the sight.

Toembrace the message of His Son,

And call the joys of heaven our own. 2 His terrors keep the world in awe;

His justice guards His holy law; 4 Then, should the earth's old pillars His love reveals a smiling face;

shake, His truth and promise seal the grace. And all the wheels of nature break, 3 Through all His works His wisdom Our steady souls would fear no more shines,

Than solid rocks when billows roar. And baffles Satan's deep designs;. His power is sovereign to fulfil 10 The noblest counsels of His will.

1 With glory clad, with strength arrayed, 4 And will this glorious Lord descend

The Lord that o'er all nature reigns, To be my father and my friend!

The world's foundation strongly laid, Then let my songs with angels join; And the vast fabric still sustains. Heaven is secure, if God be mine.

And toss their troubled waves on high;
