4 Praise the God of our salvation,
Hosts on high his power proclaim; Heaven and earth, and all creation, Praise and magnify his name!
10s & lls. O 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. 3 With glory adorned, his people shall sing.
To God, whọ defence and plenty supplies : Their loud acclamations to him, their great King. Through earth shall be sounded, and reach to the
skies. 4 Ye angels above, his glories who've sung,
· In loftiest notes, now publish his praise : We mortals, delighted, would borrow your tongue; Would join in your numbers, and chant to your
L. M. 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 Awake the trumpet's lofty sound,
To spread your sacred pleasure round; Awake each voice—and strike each string,
And to the solemn organ sing.
Attend, and join the blissful choir;
6s & 4s. 484
Exhortation to universal Praise.
Rise and adore :
Vast as his power.
Wide as his fame :
your deep notes around,
Filled with his name.
Sweet the accord!
Praise ye the Lord. 485
8s & 6s.
Sing with a cheerful voice;
Exalt our God, with one accord,
And in his name rejoice: Ne'er cease to sing, thou ransomed host, To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, Till in the realms of endless light,
Your praises shall unite. 2 There we, to all eternity,
Shall join th' angelic lays, And sing, in perfect harmony,
To God our Saviour's praise; He hath redeemed us by his blood, And made us kings and priests to God;
for us the Lamb was slain. Praise
the Lord! Amen. 486
My voice and all my powers;
Shall fill the circling hours. 2 Thy name shall dwell upon my tongue,
While suns shall set and rise ;
C. M. 487
Let earth his praise resound;
To spread his glory round. 2 Thou city of the Lord! begin
The universal song;
The cheerful notes prolong ;
3 Till, midst the strains of distant lands,
The islands sound his praise ; And all combined, with one accord, Jehovah's glories raise.
8s & 7s. 488
Praise for a Revival. FOUNT of everlasting love!
Rich thy streains of mercy are, Flowing purely from above;
Beauty marks their course afar. 2 Lo! thy church, thy garden now,
Blooms beneath the heavenly shower;
Mild, yet mighty is thy power. 3 God of grace! before thy throne,
Here our warmest thanks we bring Thine the glory—thine alone;
Loudest praise to thee we sing. 4 Hear, oh hear our grateful song;
Let thy Spirit still descend:
The Church exulting in God's Favor. WAKE thee, O Zion—thy mourning is ended;
God-thine own God, hath regarded thy prayer: Wake thee and hail him, in glory descended,
Thy darkness to scatter-thy wastes to repair. 2 Wake thee, O Zion--his Spirit of power
To newness of life is awaking the dead; Array thee in beauty, and greet the glad hour,
That brings thee salvation, thro' Jesus who bled.
3 Saviourwe gladly with voices resounding,
Loud as the thunder-our chorus would swell;
L. M. 490
Christ remembered and praised.
But, O my soul, forget him not. 2 Renounce thy works and ways, with grief,
And fly to this divine relief;
And for thy life gave up his own. 3 Infinite truth and mercy shine
In him—and he himself is thine:
Such charms, such matchless charms forget? 4 Oh no—till life itself depart,
His name shall cheer and warm my heart;
L. M. PRAISE God, from whom all blessings flow; Praise him, all creatures here below; Praise him above, ye heavenly host, Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
