God praised by all.
1 Praise 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 wondrous works, how bright they shine!
Praise him for all his mighty deeds,

Whose greatness all your praise exceeds.
3 Let all whom life and breath inspire

Attend, and join the blissful choir;
But chiefly, ye who know his word,

Adore and love and praise the Lord!

27
Bless the Lord forever and ever.
1 Stand up, and bless the Lord,

Ye people of his choice;
Stand up, and bless the Lord your God

With heart and soul and voice.
2 Though high above all praise,

Above all blessing high,
Who would not fear his holy name,

And laud, and magnify?
3 Oh, for the living flame

From his own altar brought,
To touch our lips, our souls inspire,

And wing to heaven our thought!
4 God is our strength and song,

And his salvation ours;
Then be his love in Christ proclaimed

With all our ransomed powers.
5 Stand up, and bless the Lord;

The Lord your God adore;
Stand up, and bless his glorious name,
Henceforth, for evermore!

All should join in Praise.
1 Ye tribes of Adam, join

With heaven and earth and seas,
And offer notes divine

To your Creator's praise:
Ye holy throng

In worlds of light, Of angels bright,

Begin the song.
2 Thou sun, with dazzling rays,

And moon that rul'st the night,
Shine to your Maker's praise,

With stars of twinkling light:
His power declare,

And clouds that fly, Ye floods on high,

In empty air.
3 The shining worlds above

In glorious order stand;
Or in swift courses move,

By his supreme command:
He spake the word,

From nothing came And all their frame

To praise the Lord: 4 Let all the nations fear

The God that rules above;
He brings his people near,

And makes them taste his love: While earth and sky His saints shall raise Attempt his praise, His honors high. 16 11s & 8s.

26 God praised in the Sanctuary. 1 Be joyful in God, all ye lands of the earth;

Oh, serve him with gladness and fear; Exult in his presence with music and mirth;

With love and devotion draw near. 2 Jehovah is God, and Jehovah alone,

Creator and Ruler o’er all;
And we are his people; his sceptre we own;
His sheep, and we follow his call.

3 Oh, enter his gates with thanksgiving and song,

Your vows in his temple proclaim ;
His praise in melodious accordance prolong,

And bless his adorable name.

4 For good is the Lord, inexpressibly good,

And we are the work of his hand;
His mercy and truth from eternity stood,

And shall to eternity stand.

17 11s.

26 The Lord's Prayer. 1 Our Father in heaven, we hallow thy name.

May thy kingdom holy on earth be the same.
Oh, give to us daily our portion of bread:
It is from thy bounty that all must be fed.

2 Forgive our transgressions, and teach us to know

That humble compassion which pardons each foe;
Keep us from temptation, from evil and sin,
And thine be the glory forever! Amen!

The Lord's Prayer.
1 Our Father, God, who art in heaven,

All hallowed be thy name;
Thy kingdom come; thy will be done
In heaven and earth the same.

2 Give us this day our daily bread;

And as we those forgive
Who sin against us, so may we

Forgiving grace receive.

3 Into temptation lead us not;

From evil set us free;
And thine the kingdom, thine the power
And glory, ever be.

Universal Praise.
1 Luud hallelujahs to the Lord,

From distant worlds, where creatures dwell; Let heaven begin the solemn word,

And sound it dreadful down to hell.
2 Wide as his vast dominion lies,

Make the Creator's name be known;
Loud as his thunder shout his praise,

And sound it lofty as his throne.
3 Jehovah !--'tis a glorious word ;

Oh, may it dwell on every tongue;
But saints, who best have known the Lord,

Are bound to raise the noblest song.
4 Speak of the wonders of that love

Which Gabriel plays on every chord;
From all below, and all above,
Loud hallelujahs to the Lord.

L. M.
Praise to the great Jehovah.
1 Be thou, O God, exalted high;

And as thy glory fills the sky,
So let it be on earth displayed,

Till thou art here, as there, obeyed.
2 O God, my heart is fixed; 'tis bent

Its thankful tribute to present;
And, with my heart, my voice I'll raise

To thee, my God, in songs of praise.
3 Thy praises, Lord, I will resound

To all the listening nations round;
Thy mercy highest heaven transcends;

Thy truth beyond the clouds extends.
4 Be thou, O God, exalted high;

And as thy glory fills the sky,
So let it be on earth displayed,
Till thou art here, as there, obeyed.

10s & 1ls.

13 God glorious. 1 (h, worship the King, all glorious above, And gratefully sing his wonderful love, Our Shield and Defender, the Ancient of days,

Pavilioned in splendor, and girded with praise. 2 Oh, tell of his might, and sing of his grace,

Whose robe is the light, whose canopy, space; His chariots of wrath the deep thunder-clouds form, And dark is his path on the wings of the storm. 3 Thy bountiful care what tongue can recite?

It breathes in the air, it shines in the light,
It streams from the hills, it descends to the plain,

And sweetly distils in the dew and the rain. 4 Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail,

In thee do we trust, nor find thee to fail;
Thy mercies how tender! how firm to the end!

Our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend. 5 Father Almighty, how faithful thy love!

While angels delight to hymn thee above,
The humbler creation, though feeble their lays,

With true adoration shall lisp to thy praise.

Exhortation to Praise.
1 Come, sound his praise abroad,

And hymns of glory sing;
Jehovah is the sovereign God,

The universal King.
2 Come, worship at his throne;

Come, bow before the Lord;
We are his work, and not our own;

He formed us by his word.
3 To-day attend his voice,

Nor dare provoke his rod;
Come, like the people of his choice,
And own your gracious God.
