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,


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.



A King shall reign in righteousness
A youth, devoted to the Lord
Abide with us, the evening shades.
Absurd and vain attempt to bind
Affliction's faded form draws nigh
Affliction 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
Almighty Father, gracious Lord
Almighty Father, gracious Power
Almighty Maker, God.
Am I a soldier of the cross
Angels, roll the rock away
Another fleeting 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

[ocr errors]

Be joyful in God, all ye lands of the earth
Bear me, ye spirits of the blest
Before Jehovah's royal throne

Before the rosy dawn of day.
Before the world was made
Begin, my soul, the lofty lay.
Begin, my tongue, some heavenly theme
Behold, on Zion's heavenly shore
Behold the Corner-stone
Behold the long-expected Light
Behold the glories of the Lamb.
Behold the morning sun
Behold, the bright morning appears
Behold the fleecy snow
Behold, the grace appears
Behold, the heavens declare
Behold the Prince of peace
Behold what wondrous grace
Benighted on the trackless main
Blest are the men of broken heart
Blest be the everlasting God.
Blest is the man whose tender care
Blest is the man whose tender heart
Blow ye the trumpet,
Borne o'er the ocean's stormy wave
Bright Star of hope, thy rise we hail.
Bright Source of intellect above
By faith may Jesus dwell.

Call Jehovah thy Salvation
Calm, my soul, behold thy Saviour
Celestial Power above.

Celestial worlds, your Maker's name.
Children, in years and knowledge young
Christians, dismiss your fear.
Come, all ye saints, that love the Lord
Come, all ye weary, fainting souls.
Come, children, learn to fear the Lord
Come, fellow-sinners, come away.
Come, gracious Lord, descend and dwell
Come, Holy Spirit, heavenly Dove
Come, let us join in sacred songs
Come, let us join our cheerful songs
Come, said Jesus' sacred voice .
Come, sing a Saviour's power
Come, sound his praise abroad
Come, thou fount of every blessing
Come, thou long-expected Jesus
Come, ye who love the Lord
Come, ye that know and love the Lord

Daughters of pity, tuné the lay.
Dear Lord, behold thy servants here
Deem not that they are blest alone
Deep are the wounds which sin has made
Didst thou, dear Jesus, suffer shame
