5. Almighty Power, to thee we bow;
Hymn 3. c. M.
1. RISE, rise, my soul, and leave the ground,
Stretch all thy thoughts abroad,
And rouse up ev'ry tuneful sound
2. Long ere the lofty skies were spread,
Or Adam form'd, or Angels made,
3. His boundless years can ne'er decrease,
4. While like a tide our minutes flow,

And flames melt down the skies,
Hymn 4. c. M.
God our Preserver.

6. While we have breath, or life, or tongues,
His Spirit moves our heaving lungs,

Vast magazines of plagues and storms
3. Those heaps of wrath, by slow degrees,
But kindled, Oh! how fierce thy blaze!
4. At his approach the mountains flee,
The frighted sea makes haste away,
5. Through the wide air the weighty rocks
Who dares to meet his fiery rage,
6. Yet, mighty God! Thy sov'reign Grace.
When wrath comes rushing down.
7. Thy hands shall on rebellious kings
Hymn 6. L. M.
God's condescension to human affairs. Pto the Lord, who reigns on high, And views the rations from afar, Let everlasting praises fly,

5. O could our thankful hearts devise
To the third heav'n our songs should rise,

Job ix. 2-10.
TOW should the sons of Adam's race
If he contend in righteousness,
2. To vindicate my words and thoughts
3. Strong is his arm, his heart is wise;
4. Mountains by his Almighty wrath
He shakes the earth, from South to North,
5. He bids the sun forbear to rise;
His hand with sackcloth spreads the skies
*. He walks upon the raging sea;
And rides the stormy winds;

His counsel and his, care,
Preserves us safe from sin and death,
He will present our souls
