5. Creatures with all their endless race,
Thy power and praise proclaim;
But saints, who taste Thy richer grace,
Delight to bless Thy name.

1393. 7s.

1. PRAISE the Lord-His power confess;
Praise Him in His holiness;
Praise Him as the theme inspires;
Praise Him as His fame requires.

2. Let the trumpet's lofty sound
Spread its loudest notes around;
Let the harp unite, in praise,
With the sacred minstrel's lays.

3. Let the organ join to bless

God-the Lord of righteousness;
Tune your voice to spread the fame
Of the great Jehovah's name.

4. All who dwell beneath His light!
In His praise, your hearts unite;
While the stream of song is poured-
Praise and magnify the Lord.

1394. L. P. M.

1. LET all the earth their voices raise,
To sing the choicest psalm of praise;

To sing and bless Jehovah's name:
His glory let the heathen know;
His wonders to the nations show;

And all His saving works proclaim.

2. He framed the globe, He built the sky, He made the shining worlds on high,

And reigns complete in glory there;
His beams are majesty and light;
His beauties-how divinely bright!
His temple—how divinely fair!

1395. C. M..

1. LET children hear the mighty deeds
Which God performed of old;
Which in our younger years we saw,
And which our fathers told.

3. Our lips shall tell them to our sons,
And they again to theirs,
That generations yet unborn
May teach them to their heirs.

2. He bids us make His glories known,-
His works of power and grace;
And we'll convey His wonders down
Through every rising race.

4. Thus shall they learn, in God alone
Their hope securely stands;
That they may ne'er forget His works,
But practice His commands.

1396. L. M.

1. LORD, in Thy great, Thy glorious name,
I place my hope, my only trust;
Save me from sorrow, guilt, and shame,
Thou ever gracious, ever just.

2. Thou art my rock-Thy name alone

The fortress where my hopes retreat Oh make Thy power and mercy known To safety guide my wandering feet.

3. Blest be the Lord-forever blest,

Whose mercy bids my fear remove, Those sacred walls, which guard my rest Are His almighty power and love.

4. Ye humble souls, who seek his face,

Let sacred courage fill your heart! Hope in the Lord-and trust His grace, And He will heavenly strength impart

1397. C. M.

1. I LOVE the Lord;-He heard my cries,
And pitied every groan;
Long as I live, when troubles rise,
I'll hasten to His throne.

2. I love the Lord;-He bowed His ear,
And chased my griefs away;
Oh! let my heart no more despair
While I have breath to pray.

3. Come the great day, the glorious hour,
When earth shall feel His saving power,

And barb'rous nations fear his name!
Then shall the race of man confess
The beauty of His holiness,

And, in His courts, His grace proclaim. 4. "My God," I cried, "Thy servant savo,

Thou ever good and just!
Thy power can rescue from the grave-
Thy power is all my trust."

3. My flesh declined, my spirits fell,
And I drew near the dead;
While inward pangs and fears of hell
Perplexed my wakeful head.

5. The Lord beheld me sore distressed,
He bade my pains remove;
Return, my soul! to God Thy rest,
For thou hast known His love.

6. My God hath saved my soul from death,
And dried my falling tears;
Now to His praise I'll spend my breath,
And my remaining years.
