Joyful Worship.
1 Ye nations round the earth rejoice

Before the Lord, your sovereign King;
Serve him with cheerful heart and voice;

With all your tongues his glory sing.
2 The Lord is God; 'tis he alone

Doth life and breath and being give :
We are his work, and not our own,

The sheep that on his pastures live.
3 Enter his gates with songs of joy ;

With praises to his courts repair;
And make it your divine employ

To pay your thanks and honors there.
4 The Lord is good, the Lord is kind,

Great is his grace, his mercy sure ;
And the whole race of man shall find

His truth from age to age endure.


L. M.


The King of Glory.
1 Oh, hallowed is the land and blessed,

Where Christ, the Ruler, is confessed !
Oh, happy hearts and happy homes,

To whom the great Redeemer comes !
2 Lift up your heads, ye mighty gates,

Behold, the King of glory waits !
The King of kings is drawing near;

The Saviour of the world is here.
3 Fling wide the portals of your heart:

Make it a temple set apart
From earthly use for heaven's employ,

Adorned with prayer and love and joy.
4 Redeemer, come! I open wide

My soul to thee; here, Lord, abide !
Thankful and glad my song I raise,
And give to thee a life of praise.

9 Before Jehovah's awful Throne. 1 Before Jehovah's awful throne,

Ye nations, bow with sacred joy :
Know that the Lord is God alone;

He can create, and he destroy.
2 His sovereign power, without our aid,

Made us of clay, and formed us men;
And when, like wand'ring sheep, we strayed,

He brought us to his fold again. 3 We are his people, we his care,

Our souls, and all our mortal frame:
What lasting honors shall we rear,

Almighty Maker, to thy name?
4 We'll crowd thy gates with thankful songs,

High as the heavens our voices raise ;
And earth, with her ten thousand tongues,

Shall fill thy courts with sounding praise. 5 Wide as the world is thy command,

Vast as eternity thy love:
Firm as a rock thy truth shall stand,

When rolling years shall cease to move.

13 God praised in the Congregation. 1 Oh, praise ye the Lord! prepare your glad voice,

His praise in the great assembly to sing : In their great Creator let all men rejoice,

And heirs of salvation be glad in their King. 2 Let them his great name devoutly adore,

In loud-swelling strains his praises express, Who graciously opens his bountiful store,

Their wants to relieve, and his children to bless. B With glory adorned, his people shall sing

To God, who defence and plenty supplies; Their loud acclamations to him, their great King, Through earth shall be scunded and reach to the skies.

Bless thou the Lord, my soul!

And publish abroad his wonderful name;
The name all-victorious of Jesus extol ;

And still he is nigh, his presence we have ;

Ascribing salvation to Jesus our King.

Let all cry aloud, and honor the Son ;
The praises of Jesus the angels proclaim,
Fall down on their faces, a nd worship the Lamb.

All glory and power and wisdom and might;
All honor and blessing, with angels above,
And thanks never ceasing, for infinite love.

Universal Praise.
1 Let every creature join

To bless Jehovah's name,
And every power

To swell th’ exalted theme;
Let nature raise,

A general song From every tongue, Of grateful praise.

2 But oh, from human tongues

Should nobler praises flow,
And every thankful heart

With warm devotion glow;
Your voices raise,

Above the rest Ye highly blest;

Declare his praise.
3 Assist me, gracious God;

My heart, my voice, inspire;
Then shall I humbly join

The universal choir;
Thy grace can raise

And tune my song. My heart and tongue, To lively praise.

The Creation invited to praise God.
1 From all that dwell below the skies,

Let the Creator's praise arise ;
Let the Redeemer's name be sung,

Through every land, by every tongue.

Eternal truth attends thy word:
Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore,
Ti sun shall rise and set no more.
