2 Who may share this great salvation ?
Every pure and humble mind; Every kindred, tongue, and nation,
From the dross of guilt refin'd: Blessings all around bestowing,
God withholds his care from none; Grace and mercy ever flowing From the fountain of his throne.
3 Every stain of guilt abhorring,
Firm and bold in virtue's cause, Still thy Providence adoring,
Faithful subjects of thy laws,Lord! with favour still attend us ;
Bless us with thy wondrous love ; Thou, our Sun and Shield, defend us ;All our hope is from above.
Bounteous Source of all our joy! Tis his hand upholds all nature,
And his word can all destroy Saints, with pious zeal attending,
Now the grateful tribute raise ;
Join the universal praise :
Lowly bend with contrite souls ;
Here his wrath no thunder rolls : Lo! the eternal page before us
Bears the covenant of his love; Full of mercy to restore us,
Mercy beaming from above,
3 Every secret fault confessing,
Deed unrighteous, thought of sin; Seize, oh seize, the profferd blessing,
Grace from God, and peace within :
Still the song of glory raise ;
1 PRAISE to thee, thou great Creator !
Praise be thine from every tongue: Join, my soul, with every creature; Join the universal song.
2 For ten thousand blessings given,
For the hope of future joy, Sound his praise through earth and heaven;
Sound Jehovah's praise on high.
Praise on Earth and in Heaven.
1 Father of mercies ! let our songs
With thee acceptance find : Thy loving-kindness we adore,
To us and all mankind.
For life preserv'd by thee,
To us through Jesus given : Thanks for the means of grace on earth, And for the hope of heaven.
4 Oh let a sense of this thy grace
Our best affections move; That, while our lips thy praise proclaim, Our hearts may feel thy love.
5 Lord ! may we give ourselves to thee,
And, walking in thy ways, In righteousness and holiness,
Obey thee all our days,
Thee to praise, in songs divine,
1 Ye works of God! on him alone From earth his footstool, heaven his throne
Be all your praise bestow'd :
power to move :
To heaven's bright mansions soar ! Oh let your songs his praise display, Till nature's self shall waste away, And time shall be no more.
35. Universal Praise.
1 Let every creature join To praise the eternal God :
