2 Though voice nor sound inform the ear,

Well known the language of their song,
When, one by one, the stars appear,

Led by the silent moon along;
Till round the earth, from all the sky,

Thy beauty beams on every eye.
3 Waked from thy touch, the morning sun

Comes like a bridegroom from his bower, And, like a giant, glad to run

His bright career with speed and power ; Thy flaming messenger, to dart

Life through the depths of nature's heart. 4 While these transporting visions shine

Along the path of Providence, Glory eternal, joy divine,

Thy word reveals, transcending sense : My soul thy goodness longs to see, Thy love to man, thy love to me.

DOXOLOGIES.

HYMN 544. L. M. [ #] 1 PRAISE God, from whom all blessings flow;

Praise him, all creatures here below;
Praise him above, ye heavenly throng;
O praise Jehovah in your song.

HYMN 545. C. M. [#]
1 ALMIGHTY Father, gracious Power,

Thy grateful children own
Thy boundless love, and bow before

Thine everlasting throne.
2 Forever hallowed be thy name,

All holy, good, and wise;
And may thy perfect will be done

On earth as in the skies.

HYMN 546. S. M. [#]
1 To heaven's eternal King,

Who rules supreme alone,
Let all on earth their praises bring,

And worship round his throne.
2 His name, as sovereign Lord,

Shall sound through distant lands; Great is his grace, and sure his word;

His truth forever stands.

HYMN 547. 7s. M. [ #]
1 HOMAGE pay to God above,-

God, whose nature all is love;
In his praise your breath employ,--

Gracious Source of every joy!
2 All our hopes of life and heaven

Through thy grace alone are given ;
Bliss eternal, pure, divine,
Every gift, o God, is thine.

HYMN 548. H. M. [#]
GLORY to God on high ;

Forever bless his name;
Let earth, and seas and sky

His wondrous love proclaim.
To him be praise and glory given
By all on earth and all in heaven.

HYMN 549. 81. L. M. [#]
To thee, supreme, the ever-blest,
Be praise in thankful notes addressed;
Such as the stars of morning sung,
When earth was on its balance hung;
Such praise as from angelic choirs,
And saints, whom zeal like theirs inspires,
In heaven above, and earth below,
Still flows, and shall forever flow.

HYMN 550. 8 & 7s. M. [#] Gracious Source of every blessing,

Guard our breasts from anxious fears; Let us, each thy care possessing,

Peaceful reach the vale of years; All our hopes on thee reclining,

Peace companion of our way, May our sun, in smiles declining, Rise in everlasting day.

INDEX OF FIRST LINES.

A King shall reign in righteousness
A youth, devoted to the Lord
Abide with us, the evening shades.
Absurd and vain attempt to bind
Afliction's saded form draws nigh
Afliction is a stormy deep
Again the Lord of life and light
Ah, wretched souls, who strive in vain
Alas, and did my Saviour bleed
All hail, almighty, glorious Sire
All hail, mysterious King
All hail, redeeming Lord
All hail the power of Jesus' name
All nature dies, and lives again.
All nature feels attractive power
Almighty and immortal King
Alinighty Father, gracious Lord
Almighty Father, gracious Power
Almighty Maker, God .
Am I a soldier of the cross
Angels, roll the rock away
Another fileeting day is gone
Arise, and hail the happy day
Arise, expand your wings
Arise, my soul, shake off thy fears.
Arrayed in clouds of golden light
As showers on meadows newly mown
As the sweet flower which scents the morn
Attend, my soul, with filial awe
At thy command, our dearest Lord
Author of good, we rest on thee
Awake, and sing the song
Awake, my soul, stretch every nerve
Awake, my soul, in joyful lays .
Awake, my soul, lift up thine eyes
Awake, my soul, and with the sun
Awake, our souls, and bless his name
Awake, our drowsy souls .
Awake, our souls, away, our fears.
Awake the song that gave to earth
Away with our sorrow and fear
Be joyful in God, all ye lands of the earth
Pear me, ye spirits of the blest
Before Jehovah's royal throne

Hyuin.
