His mercy hears their loud address,
And sends salvation in distress. 4 O may, the sons of men record
The wondrous goodness of the Lord !
HYMN 77. L. M. [#]
Trust in God on the Ocean. 1 THOSE who
the waves, And, mournful, quit their native land, Where tempests howl, and ocean laves,
Behold the wonders of God's hand. 2 When bounding o'er the foaming main,
Where billows rise, and storms prevail, They learn to trust his mighty name,
Whose mercy breathes in every gale. 3 The waves that roar, the winds that rise,
Display his power in awful form;
And smiles above the threatening storm. 4 There is no spot in all the world,
Earth, ocean, or the sky above,
Deserted by the eye of Love.
HYMN 78. C. M. [#]
Universal Goodness of God. 1 LORD, thou art good; all nature shows
Its mighty Author kind:
Thy bounty through creation flows,
Full, free, and unconfined.
Thine infinite good will ;
hill. 3 It fills the wide, extended main,
And heavens, which spread more wide ; It drops in gentle showers of rain,
And rolls in every tide. 4 Through the vast whole it pours supplies
Spreads joy through all its parts : O may such love attract our eyes,
And captivate our hearts ! 5 High admiration let it raise,
And kind affection move ;
And fill our hearts with love.
HYMN 79. C. M. [#]
Praise for Creation and Providence. 1 I sing the mighty power of God,
That made the mountains rise ;
And built the lofty skies.
The sun to rule the day :
3 I sing the goodness of the Lord,
That filled the earth with food :
And then pronouneed them good. 4 There's not a plant or flower below
But makes thy glories known : The clouds arise, and tempests blow,
By order from thy throne.
Are subject to thy care :
But God is present there.
HYMN 80. C. M. [#]
Creation and Providence. 1 LORD, when my raptured thought surveys
Creation's beauties o’er,
And bid my soul adore.
Thy radiant footsteps shine;
And speak thy hand divine.
In earth, and sea, and air,
Almighty power declare.
And wait their daily food
From thy paternal, bounteous hand,
Exhaustless Spring of good!
HYMN 81. S. M. [#]
Obligation to Gratitude and Praise.
To thee my all I owe :
Whence all my blessings flow.
A thousand reasons move,
My heart to grateful love.
Dawned on my early days,
To form my lips to praise.
On thee alone I live :
More praise than life can give.
My soul with strength divine ;
And all my days be thine.
HYMN 82. L. M. [#]
God the intellectual Light. 1 PRAISE to the Lord of boundless might,
With uncreated glories bright:
His presence gilds the worlds above,
The Source supreme of light and love. 2 He sees the mind when lost it lies
In shades of ignorance and vice,
And changes midnight into day.
On this benighted heart of mine;
As in the Saviour's face beheld.
In radiant lines shall stand confessed ;
THOUGHTS CONCERNING GOD.
HYMN 83. C. M. [#]
God everywhere a Refuge. 1 How are thy servants blessed, O Lord !
How sure is their defence !
Their help, Omnipotence.
Supported by thy care,
And breathe in tainted air.
