TATE & BRADY.
Public Worship. Ps. 95.
1 O COME, loud anthems let us sing,
3 The depths of earth are in his hand,
4 The rolling ocean's vast abyss
By the same sovereign right is his;
5 O let us to his courts repair,
God may be worshipped in every Place.
1 THE heaven of heavens cannot contain
The Universal Lord;
Yet he in humble hearts will deign
2 Where'er ascends the sacrifice Of fervent praise and prayer, Or on the earth, or in the skies,
The God of heaven is there.
3 His presence is diffused abroad
Through realms, through worlds unknown; Who seek the mercies of our God Are ever near his throne.
16. C. M.
1 THE offerings to thy throne which rise,
2 Upon thine all-discerning ear
3 My offerings will indeed be blest,
If thy pure Spirit touch my breast
4 O may that Spirit warm my heart
And to life's lowly vale impart
Privilege of Christian Worship. Ps. 132.
1 THE Lord in Zion placed his name,
To Zion the whole nation came
2 But we have no such lengths to go,
3 Here, Mighty God! accept our vows,
4 Here let the son of David reign;
5 Here let him hold a lasting throne,
1 WHEN before thy throne we kneel,
2 Check each proud and wandering thought
3 Weak, imperfect creatures, we
4 O receive the praise that dares
1 WHEREWITH shall I approach the Lord,
2 Shall altars flame, and victims bleed,
Will these my earnest wish succeed,
3 0 no, my soul! 't were fruitless all;
No fatlings from the field or stall
4 To men their rights I must allow,
To God with humble rev'rence bow,
5 Hands that are clean, and hearts sincere, He never will despise ;
And cheerful duty he'll prefer
Homage and Devotion.
1 WITH sacred joy we lift our eyes
2 Before the awful throne we bow
3 Thee we adore; and, Lord, to thee
Thy service, unconstrained and free,
4 While in thy house of prayer we kneel With trust and holy fear,
Thy mercy and thy truth reveal,
5 With fervor teach our hearts to pray,
Nor from thy presence cast away
