Let the whole earth in songs rejoice,
And distant islands join their voice.
2 Deep are his counsels and unknown;
But

grace and truth support his throne:
Tho' gloomy clouds his way surround,
Justice is their eternal ground.
3 In robes of Judgment, lo, he comes !
Shakes the wide earth, and cleaves the tombs:
Before him burns devouring fire;
The mountains melt, the seas retire.
A His enemies, with sore dismay,
Fly from the sight, and shun the day:
Then lift your heads, ye saints, on high,
And sing, for your redemption's nig .

PSALM 97. Second Part. L. M.

Let all the angels of God worship him.
CHE Lord is come; the heav'ns proclaim

His birth; the nations learn his name:
An unknown star directs the road

Of eastern sages to their God.
2 All ye bright armies of the skies,

Go, worship, where the Saviour lies :
Angels and kings before him bow,

Those Gods on high and gods below.
3 Let idols totter to the ground,
And their own worshippers confound:
Let Judah shout, let Zion sing,
And earth confess her sov’reign King.
PSALM 97. Third Part. L. M.

Grace and glory.
WH’ Almighty reigns, exalted high

O'er all the earth, o'er all the sky :-
Tho'clouds and darkness veil his feet,
His dwelling is the mercy-seat.

2 O ye, that love his holy name,

Hate ev'ry work of sin and shame!
He guards the souls of all his friends,

And from the snares of hell defends. 3 Immortal light, and joys unknown,

Are for the saints in darkness sown:
Those glorious seeds shall spring and risę;

And the bright harvest bless our eyes. 4 Rejoice, ye righteous, and record

The sacred honours of the Lord :
None but the soul that feels his grace,
Can triumph in his holiness.

And learn his righteousness.

With all her diff'rent tongues ;
And spread the honours of his name
In melody and songs.

While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains

Repeat the sounding joy.
3 No more let sins and sorrows grow,

Nor thorns infest the ground :

And makes the nations prove
The glories of his righteousness,
And wonders of his love.

2 When Israel was his church,

When Aaron was his priest,
When Moses cried, when Samuel pray'd,

He gave his people rest. 3 Oft he forgave their sins,

Nor would destroy their race; And oft he made his vengeance known

When they abus’d his grace. 4. Exalt the Lord our God;

His grace is still the same:
Still he's a God of holiness,

And jealous for his name.
PSALM 100. First Part. L. M.

Praise to our Creator.
1 ,

Ye nations bow with sacred joy: Know that the Lord is God alone;

He can create, and he destroy.
2 His sov'reign pow'r, without our aid,

Made us of clay, and form'd us men;
And when like wand'ring sheep we stray'd,

He brought us to his fold again. 3 We are his people, we his care ;

Our souls and all our mortal frame:
What lasting honours shall we rear,

Almighty Maker, to thy name?
4 We'll croud thy gates with thankful songs

High as the heav'n our voices raise :
And earth with her ten thousand tongues

Shall fill thy courts with sounding praise. 5 Wide as the world is thy command,

Vast as eternity thy love :
Firm as a rock thy truth must stand;
When rolling years shall cease to move.

SIN
ING to the Lord most high;

Let ev'ry land adore :
With grateful voice make known

His goodness and his pow'r.
Let cheerful songs declare his ways,
And let his praise inspire your tongues.
2 Enter his courts with joy ;

With fear address the Lord :
He form'd us with his hand,
And quicken'd by his word.
With wide command he spreads his sway
O'er ev'ry sea, and ev'ry land.
3 His hands provide our food,

And ev'ry blessing give :
We feed upon his care,

And in his pastures live.
With cheerful songs declare his ways,
And let his praise inspire your tongues.

His truth and mercy sure ;
While earth and heav'n shall last,

His promises endure.
With bounteous hand he spreads his sway
O'er ev'ry sea, and ev'ry land.

ERCY and judgment are my song:

And since they both to thee belong:-
My gracious God, my righteous King,
To thee my songs and vows I'll bring.
2 If I am rais'd to bear the sword,
I'll take my counsels from thy word:
