But Spring revives their hopes again,
And breathes new life through every vein. 4 How emblematic of that day,
The glorious resurrection morn,
In robes that angel hosts adorn,
GOD'S WORKS PRAISE HIM.
HYMN 71. H. M. [#]
Glory of God's Works.
Your Maker's praises sing;
To heaven's eternal King.
Ye kindreds of the earth;
And show his wonders forth,
With forests waving wide ;
'Tis he old ocean bounds,
And heaves her roaring tide;
As round the earth they roll;
They sound, from pole to pole.
Display, with all your spheres,
When silent night appears.
HYMN 72. S. M. [+]
Praise to the Creator.
How wondrous is thy name !
Through all creation's frame ! 2 Nature in every dress
Her humble homage pays;
Thine undissembled praise. 3 My soul would rise and sing
To her Creator too :
And pay the homage due.
4 In joy, 0, let me spend
The remnant of my days;
In grateful songs of praise !
HYMN 73. C. M. [#]
Works of God.
In all the works of God;
declared abroad. 2 The heavens, adorned with moon and stars,
Express his glorious skill;
The night attends his will. 3 Their language through the earth is heard ;
One all-extending voice
Which bids the earth rejoice.
Great source of blissful light,
He sheds effulgence bright !
Which renovates the soul;
That makes the wounded whole. 6 Nor shall its moral light grow dim,
Or ever fade away ;
Shall shed a boundless day.
HYMN 74. C. M. [#]
Grandeur of God's Works. 1 PRAISE ye the Lord, immortal choir,
Who fill the realms above ; Praise him who formed
of his fire, And feeds
with his love.
The floor of his abode e;
Before a brighter God.
Whose beams create our days, Join with the silver queen of night, ,
To own your borrowed rays. 4 Blush, and refund the honours paid To your
inferior names ; Tell the blind world your orbs are fed
By his exhaustless flames. 5 Winds, ye shall bear his name aloud
Through the ethereal blue; For when his chariot is a cloud,
He makes his wheels of you.
HYMN 75. C. M. [#]
God controls the Seas.
Thy wonders in the deeps,
Who trade in floating ships.
2 At thy command the winds arise,
And swell the towering waves ;
And sink in gaping graves. 3 Then to the Lord they raise their cries
He hears the loud request,
And lays the floods to rest.
And see the storm allayed :
There let their vows be paid.
The goodness of the Lord,
Thy wondrous love record !
HYMN 76. L. M. [#]
Protection of God on the Deep. 1 Would you behold the works of God,
His wonders in the world abroad,
The unknown regions of the seas. 2 They leave their native shores behind,
And seize the favour of the wind ;
Which heave the ocean to the skies. 3 When land is far, and death is nigh,
Lost to all hope, to God they cry;
