ST. Asaph's.


I Sing to the Lord, exalt bim high,
Who spreads his clouds all round the sky;
There he prepares the fruitful rain,
Nor lets the drops descend in vain.
6 He makes the grass the hills adorn,
And clothes the smiling fields with corn;
The beasts with food his hands supply,
And the young ravens when they cry.
7 What is the creature's skill or force,
The sprightly man, the warlike horse,
The nimble wit, the active limb!
All are too mean delights for him.
8 But saints are lovely in his sight;
He views his children with delight:
He sees their hope,he knows their fear,
And looks and loves his image there.

g 4 He mov'd their mighty wheels u From all below and all above,
In unknown ages past;

Loud hallelujahs to the Lord.
And each his word fulfils,

While time and nature last.
In diff'rent ways

S. M.
His works proclaim
His wondrous name,

Universal Praise.
And speak his praise.

1 LET ev'ry creature join,
e 8 Ye kings and judges, fear,

To praise th' eternal God;
The Lord the sov’reign Kingi

Ye heav'nly hosts, the song begin,

And sound his name abroad.
And while you rale us here,
His heav'nly honours sing:

2 Thou sun, with golden beams, Nor let the dream

And moon, with paler rays,
Of pow'r and state

Ye starry lights, ye twinkling flames,
Make you forget

Shine to your Maker's praise. His pow'r supreme.

3 He built those worlds above, - 9 Virgins and youths, engage

And fix'd their wondrous frame; To sound his praise divine;

By his command they stand or move, e While infancy and age

And ever speak his name.
Their feebler voices join:
Wide as he reigns,

4 Ye vapours, when you rise,
His name be sung

Or fall in show'rs, or snow;
By every tongue,

Ye thunders,murm’ring round the skies,
In endless strains.

His pow'r and glory show.
10 Let all the nations fear

5 Wind, hail, and flashing fire, The God who rules above:

Agree to praise the Lord;
He brings his people near,

When ye in dreadful storms conspire
And makes them taste his love:

To execute his word.
While earth and sky
Attempt his praise,

6 By all his works above
His saints shall raise

His honours be express'd;
His honours high.


But saints who taste his saving love
Should sing his praises best.

St. Thomas's.

Let heav'n begin the solemn word,

And sound it dreadful down to hell

And let your songs be new; 20

Amidst the church, with cheerful voice, ¢ 3 High on a throne his glories dwell,

His later wonders shew. An awful throne of shining bliss; o Fly through the world, O sun, and tell 2 The Jews, the people of his grace, How dark thy beams compar'd to his. Shall their Redeemer sing; 4-5. do

o And Gentile nations join the praise, -9 Mortals, can you refrain your tongue,

While Zion owns hier King.
When nature all around you sings?
u O for a shout from old and young, e 3 The Lord takes pleasure in the just,
From humble swains, and lofty kings! Whom sinners treat with scorn:

The meek, who lie despis’d in dust, g 10 Wide-as his vast dominion lies— Salvation shall adorn.

Make the Creator's name be known: u Loud—as his thunder-shout his praise, 4 Saints should be joyful in their King, & And sound it lofty-y--as his throue.

Ev'n on a dying bed;

And, like the souls in glory, sing:

For God shall raise the dead.
