Praise His name, at whose command,
All things were, and all things stand:

Still their ancient course they hold,

By th' Almighty word controllid!

II.

Praise Jehovah, all below

Watery depths, and all that be
In the wonder-teeming sea ;
Central fire and icy hail,
Dews, and snow, and stormy gale,
Blowing only as He wills;
Ancient mountains, wood-clad hills,

Palm and olive, oak and pine,
Waving corn and clustering vine;
Forest beasts, and bleating herds,
Creeping things, and soaring birds,

And rivers as ye

flow :
Monarchs, with your people all,

Princes, peasants, great and small;

D

Manly youth and virgins shy,
Age and lisping infancy,
Praise Jehovah's glorious name:
He alone doth worship claim.
But His glory, vast, sublime,
Passes earth, and heaven, and time.

He His chosen seed hath blest :

They should praise their Maker best.
O ye saints, His love record :
Praise, for ever praise the Lord !

“ Hallelujah! for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth."— Rev. xix. 6.

The Lord is King ! lift up thy voice,
O earth, and all ye heavens, rejoice!
From world to world the joy shall ring :
The Lord Omnipotent is King.

The Lord is King! who then shall dare
Resist His will, distrust his care,
Or murmur at his wise decrees,
Or doubt his royal promises ?

The Lord is King! child of the dust,
The Judge of all the earth is just.
Holy and true are all His ways :
Let every creature speak His praise.

:

He reigns! ye saints, exalt your strains :
Your God is King, your Father reigns.
And He is at the Father's side,

The Man of love, the Crucified.

Come, make your wants, your burdens known;
He will present them at the throne ;
And angel bands are waiting there,
His messages of love to bear.

Oh, when His wisdom can mistake,
His might decay, his love forsake,
Then
may

his children cease to sing, The Lord Omnipotent is King.

Alike pervaded by His eye,

All

parts of his dominion lie;

This world of ours and worlds unseen,

And thin the boundary between.

One Lord, one empire, all secures :
He reigns-and life and death are yours.
Through earth and heaven one song shall ring,
The Lord Omnipotent is King.

With God all things are

" Who then can be saved ? possible.”—Mark x. 37.

Oh, how shall feeble flesh and blood

Burst through the bonds of sin ?
The holy kingdom of our God,

What man shall enter in ?

Despising all that worldlings love,

By which the soul's enslaved,
Forsaking all for things above,

Oh, who can thus be saved ?

He who made all things, He who said,

Let there be light, can give

This saving strength, can raise the dead,

And bid the sinner live,

And will not He who ransom'd man,

A Saviour's work fulfil ?
