5. SECOND PART. C. M. WRAGHAM.
2 Before thy throne we'll humbly fall,
3 Soon as the morning rays appear.
Our voice shall reach thy listening ear,
4 Within thy house our voice shall rise
There will we fix our steadfast eyes,
5 In righteousness thy strength display,
Teach us to know that only way,
6. FIRST PART. L. M. PRATT'S COLL. Severe Chastisements deprecated.
1 LORD, we can suffer thy rebukes,
2 Pity our languishing estate,
And ease the sorrow that we feel;
3 Look how the powers of nature mourn!
SECOND PART. C. M. NEWTON.
1 IN mercy, not in wrath, rebuke,
Our spirit dreads thine angry look,
2 Have mercy, Lord, for we are weak;
Oh let thy voice of comfort speak,
3 Oh come, and show thy power to save,
4 Satan, our cruel, envious foe,
He smiles to see us brought so low,
5 But hence, thou enemy, depart,
Our Saviour comes to cheer our heart; The Lord has heard our prayer.
God the Righteous Judge.
1 THE Lord is judge-before his throne All nations shall his justice own: Oh may our souls be found sincere, And stand approved with courage there. 2 The Lord, in righteousness arrayed, Surveys the world his hands have made; Pierces the heart, and tries the reins, And judgment from on high ordains. 3 Our God, our shield, around us place The shelter of the Saviour's grace: Then, when thine arm the just shall save, Our life shall triumph o'er the grave. 8. FIRST PART. C. M. TATE BRADY.
10 THOU, to whom all creatures bow, Within this earthly frame,
Through all the world, how great art thou!
2 When heaven, thy glorious work on high,
Lord, what is man! that thou shouldst choose To keep him in thy mind!
Or what his race! that thou shouldst prove To them so wondrous kind!
10 thou, to whom all creatures bow, Within this earthly frame;
Through all the world, how great art thou! How glorious is thy name!
SECOND PART. C. M. Mrs. STEELE. God's distinguishing goodness to man. THY wisdom, power, and goodness, Lord, In all thy works appear;
But most thy praise should man record,
From thee the breath of life he drew;
3 Thy providence, his constant guard
4 Yet nobler favours claim his praise,
5 All-bounteous Lord, thy grace impart;
Thy gifts with ever grateful heart,
9. FIRST PART. C. M. TATE & BRADY. Delight in Praising God.
1 To celebrate thy praise, O Lord,
2 The thought of them shall to our souls
While to thy name, O thou Most High,
Thou art, O Lord, a sure defence
As troubles rise, thy needful aid
To celebrate thy praise, O Lord,
9. SECOND PART. C. M. WRAGHAM. God Glorious as a Judge and Deliverer. 1 TO God, who dwells on Zion's mount, Your lofty voices raise;
Through all the earth his works recount, In solemn hymns of praise.
2 The Lord in righteousness is known,
The wicked, who his name disown,
3 O Lord, in majesty arise,
The heathen's power assail; Exalt thyself above the skies, And let not man prevail.
4 Thou art, O God, the righteous Lord, Thy name shall still endure;
Thy throne of judgment, and thy word,
THIRD PART. C. M.
1 WITH our whole hearts we'll raise our song
Thy wonders we'll proclaim:
Thou, sovereign Judge of right and wrong, Will put our foes to shame.
2 We'll sing thy majesty and grace;
To judge the world in righteousness,
3 Then shall the Lord a refuge prove
To save the people of his love,
And give the weary rest.
The men, who know thy name, will trust In thine abundant grace;
For thou hast ne'er forsook the just,
Sing praises to the righteous Lord,
Who executes his threatening word,
L. M. PRATT'S COLL.
Jehovah the Avenger of the Oppressed.
3 Thy Spirit shall our hearts prepare;
4 The Lord shall save th' afflicted breast,
1 WHEN all bespeak a Father's love,
2 In vain the wicked bend their bow,
