Praise to God from all nations.

1.
YE nations, praise the Lord,

Each with a different tongue;
In every language learn his word,
And let his name be sung.

2.
While angels sound his praise,

Let mortals learn their strains ;
Let all the earth his honours raise ;
O’er all the earth he reigns.

3.
Praise him with awe profound;

Let knowledge lead the song; Nor mock him with a solemn sound Upon a thoughtless tongue.

4.
Far be his honour spread,

And let his praise endure,
Till morning light and evening shade
Shall be exchanged no more.

5.
The God we worship now

Will guide us till we die,
Will be our God while here below,

And ours above the sky.

- 59. P. M.

O PRAISE ye the Lord; prepare a new song,
And let all his saints in full concert join;
With voices united the anthem prolong,
And show forth his honours in music divine.

attend, And view with complacence the offering we bring.

3. Be joyful, ye saints, sustain'd by his might, And let your glad songs awake with each

morn ; For those who obey him are still his delight; His hand with salvation the meek will adorn.

4. Then praise ye the Lord; prepare a glad song, And let all his saints in full concert join; With voices united the anthem prolong, And show forth his honours in music divine. 60. P. M.

Lost in wonder, love, and praise.

Praise to God.

1.
LIFT voice, ye people all,
Praise the God on whom ye call;
Glory give to God on high,
God, whose glory fills the sky.

God his sovereign sway maintains ;
King o'er all the earth he reigns;
All to him lift

up
their

eye, He will every want supply.

Sons of earth, the triumph join,
Praise him with the host divine;
Emulate the heavenly powers ;
Their all-gracious God, and ours.

Them he rules with milder sway;
Pure and holy hearts alone
He hath chosen for his own.

Him let all our hearts adore :
Earth and heaven repeat the cry,
Glory be to God on high!

Man the well-beloved of heaven :

Endless thanks to God belong:
Hearts o'erflowing with his praise,
Join the hymns your voices raise :

Glory be to God on high,
God whose glory fills the sky.

From creation's utmost bound;
Where the Godhead shines confest,
There be solemn praise addrest:

Glory be to God on high,
God whose glory fills the sky.

Mark the wonders of his hand!
Power, no empire can withstand;
Wisdom, angels' glorious theme;
Goodness, one eternal stream:

Glory be to God on high,
God whose glory fills the sky.
