i Praise the Lord ! ye heavens, adore him ;
Praise him, angels in the height; Sun and moon, rejoice before him;
Praise him, all ye stars of light. 2 Praise the Lord, for he hath spoken;
Worlds his mighty voice obeyed; Laws which never can be broken
For their guidance he hath made. 3 Praise the Lord, for he is glorious ;
Never shall his promise fail ;
Sin and death shall not prevail. 4 Praise the God of our salvation;
Hosts on high his power proclaim; Heaven and earth, and all creation,
Praise and magnify his name!
C. P. M.
Rev. J. OGILVIE,
Praise to God from all his Works.
i Begin, my soul, the exalted lay; Let each enraptured thought obey,
And praise the Almighty's name. Lo, heaven and earth, and seas and skies, In one melodious concert rise,
To swell the inspiring theme.
2 Thou heaven of heavens, his vast abode, Ye clouds, proclaim your Maker, God;
Ye thunders, speak his power.
Lo, on the lightning's fiery wings
The astonished worlds adore.
3 Ye deeps, with roaring billows rise
Praise Him who bids you roll.
And breathe it to the soul.
Let man, by nobler passions swayed,
In heavenly praise employ :
The general burst of joy.
i UNHEARD the dews around me fall,
And heavenly influence shed;
Celestial footsteps tread.
And spreads her gems unheard ;
Yet borrow not a word.
3 Noiseless the sun emits his fire,
And pours his golden streams; '
Before his rising beams.
4 O, grant my soul an ear to hear
Thy deep and silent voice;
And in thy love rejoice.
6 & 4s. M.
A Psalm of Praise.
Rise and adore.
Vast as his power.
Wide as his fame!
Filled with his name.
Sweet the accord!
H. M. 136. WATTS.
The universal Lord ;
The sovereign King of kings;
And be his grace adored.
Have endless praise.
What wonders hath he done!
And spread the heavens alone.
And ever sure Shall still endure; Abides thy word.
He sent his only Son
To save us from our woe,
And every hurtful foe.
And let his name
Have endless praise.
Give thanks aloud to God,
To God the Heavenly King;
His works and glories sing.
PERFECTIONS AND PROVIDENCE OF
1 ALL-powerful, self-existent God,
Who all creation dost sustain!
2 Fixed and eternal as thy days,
Each glorious attribute divine,
3 Fountain of being! Source of good!
Immutable thou dost remain !
4 Earth may with all her powers dissolve,
If such the great Creator's will;
