And feeds you with His love.

6. Thus, while the meaner creatures sing,
Ye mortals take the sound;

Echo the glories of your King
Through all the nations round. WATTS

2. Thou restless globe of golden light, Whose beams create our days, Join with the silver queen of night,

To own your borrowed rays.

3. Thunder, and hail, and fires, and storms,
The troops of his command,
Appear in all your dreadful forms,
And speak His awful hand.

4. Winds, ye shall bear His name aloud
Through the ethereal blue;
For, when his chariot is a cloud,
He makes his wheels of you.

5. Shout to the Lord, ye surging seas, In your eternal roar;

Let wave to wave resound his praise,
And shore reply to shore.

2. Those mighty orbs proclaim Thy power,
Their motions speak Thy skill;
And on the wings of every hour
We read Thy patience still.

3. But when wo view Thy strange design
To save rebellious worms.
Where vengeance and compassion join
In their divinest forms.

4. Here the whole Deity is known;
Nor dares a creature guess
Which of the glories brightest shone,
The justice, or the grace.

5. Now the full glories of the Lamb
Adorn the heavenly plains:
Bright seraphs learn Immanuel's name,
And try their choicest strains.

6. Oh! may I bear some humble part,
In that immortal song;

110. C. M.

1. FATHER! how wide Thy glory shines!

How high Thy wonders rise! [signs-
Known through the earth by thousand
By thousand through the skies.

Wonder and joy shall tune my heart,
And love command my tongue.

111. C. M.

I. KEEP silence, all created things,
And wait your Maker's nod;
My soul stands trembling while she sings
The honors of her God.

2. Life, death, and hell, and worlds unknown
Hang on His firm decree;
He sits on no precarious throne,
Nor borrows leave to be.

3. Before His throne a volume lies,
With all the fates of men;
With every angel's form and size,
Drawn by th' eternal pen.

4. His providence unfolds the book,

And makes His counsels shine; Each opening leaf, and every stroke, Fulfills some deep design.

5. My God, I would not long to see
My fate, with curious eyes-
What gloomy lines are writ for me,
Or what bright scenes may rise.

And vexed with trifling cares;
While Thine eternal thoughts move on
Thine undisturbed affairs.
