Whilst all the stars that round ber burn,
3. What though in solemn silence, all
Hymn 138. L. M.
HERE is a God, all nature speaks,
See from the clouds his glory breaks,
When the first beams of morning rise.
2. The rising sun, serenely bright,
O'er the wide world's extended frame,
His mighty maker's glorious name.
4. Almighty goodness, power divine,
The fields and verdant meads display; And bless the hand which made them shine, With various charms profusely gay、
5. For man and beast, here daily food
In wide diffusive plenty grows;
And there, for drink, the chrystal flood
6. By cooling streams, and soft'ning showers, The vegetable race are fed,
And trees, and plants, and herbs, and flowers, Their maker's bounty smiling spread.
Hymn 139. c. M.
OW are thy servants bless'd, O Lord!
Eternal wisdom is their guide,
2. In foreign realms and lands remote,
Thro' burning climes they pass unhurt,
3. When by the dreadful tempest borne
They know thou art not slow to hear,
4. The storm is laid, the winds retire,
The sea, that roars at thy command,
5. In 'midst of dangers, fears and deaths,
We'll praise thee for thy mercies past,
6. Our life, while thou preserv'st that life,
And death, when death shall be our lot,
Hymn 140. c. M.
LMIGHTY Father, gracious Lord,
Thy mercies let my heart record
In songs of grateful praise.
2. In life's first dawn, my tender frame
Long ere I could pronounce thy name,
3. Each rolling year new favours brought
But ah! in vain my labouring thought
4. While sweet reflection thro' my days
5. Yes, I adore thee, gracious Lord,
That I have known thy sacred word,
Hymn 141. c. M.
THEN all thy mercies, O my God,
Transported with the view, I'm lost
In wonder, love and praise.
2. Thy providence my life sustain'd,
3. To all my weak complaints and cries
Ere yet my feeble thoughts had learn'd To form themselves in pray'r.
4. Unnumber'd comforts on my soul Thy tender care bestow'd, Before my infant heart conceiv'd
From whom these comforts flow'd. 5. When in the slipp'ry path of youth With heedless steps I ran,
Thine arm unseen convey'd me safe,
6. Through hidden dangers, toils and deaths
7. Through ev'ry period of my life,
8. Through all eternity, to thee
Hymn 142. c. M.
N thee I live, and move, and am:
As thou renew'st my being, Lord,
2. From thee I am, through thee I am,
3. Naked I came into this world,
4. I do not praise my lab'ring hand,
Thy providence, most gracious God,
Is mine inheritance.
5. Lord, in the day, thou art about
And in the night, while I lie down,
6. A thousand deaths I daily 'scape,
7. O let my house a temple be,
Hymn 143. L. M.
IVE to our God immortal praise Mercy and truth are all his ways: Wonders of grace to God belong : Repeat his mercies in your song.
2. Give to the Lord of lords renown, The King of kings with glory crown; His mercies ever shall endure,
When lords and kings are known no more.
3. He built the earth, he spread the sky,
His mercies ever shall endure,
When suns and moons shall shine no more.
5. He sent his son with pow'r to save
From guilt, and darkness, and the grave;
