SEWALL's Col. 55 8, 8, 6 M.
From the German.
For ye are all his own;
Confess him Lord alone.
He wields the balanced earth; He makes the seasons duly yield; His dews refresh the grassy field,
And give its treasures birth. 3 'Tis God who swells the tender seeds, And man with strengthening bread provides,
And heart-rejoicing wine;
Confess his power divine.
Which never shall abate ;
That God is good and great ;-
The light, the fountains sweet; Great God, if thus thy praises be, Make this devoted heart for thee A sanctuary meet.
WATTS. Works of Creation and Providence. Ps. 33. 1 REJOICE, ye righteous, in the Lord;
This work belongs to you;
How holy, just, and true.
Let heaven and earth proclaim ;
Reveal his wondrous name.
The heavenly arches spread,
Their shining hosts were made. 4 He bade the liquid waters flow
To their appointed deep;
And their own station keep.
With fear before him stand;
And rests on his command.
Great is your theme, your songs be new; Sing of his name, his word, his ways, His works of nature and of grace,
How wise and holy, just and true.
2 Justice and truth he ever loves,
His word the heavenly arches spread ;
Were all the starry armies made.
In the vast storehouse of the deep;
His everlasting orders keep.
TATE & BRADY. Perfections and Providence of God. Ps. 36. 1 O LORD, thy mercy, my sure hope,
The highest orb of heaven transcends; Thy sacred truth's unmeasured scope
Beyond the sparkling skies extends. 2 Thy justice like the hills remains ;
Unfathomed depths thy judgments are ; Thy providence the world sustains;
The whole creation is thy care. 3 Since of thy goodness all partake,
With what assurance should the just Thy sheltering wings their refuge make,
And saints to thy protection trust! 4 Such guests. shall to thy courts be led,
To banquet on thy love's repast, And drink, as from a fountain's head,
Of joys that shall forever last.
WATTS. The Perfections and Providence of God. Ps. 36. 1 HIGH in the heavens, eternal God,
Thy goodness in full glory shines;
That veils and darkens thy designs. 2 Forever firm thy justice stands,
As mountains their foundations keep; Wise are the wonders of thy hands;
Thy judgments are a mighty deep. 3 Thy providence is kind and large ;
Both man and beast thy bounty share ;
But saints are thy peculiar care. 4 My God, how excellent thy grace!
Whence all our hope and comfort springs; The sons of Adam, in distress,
Fly to the shadow of thy wings. 5 From the provisions of thy house
We shall be fed with sweet repast ; There mercy like a river flows,
And brings salvation to our taste. 6 Life, like a fountain rich and free,
Springs from the presence of my Lord, And in thy light our souls shall see
The glories promised in thy word.
God's Wonders of Creation and Providence. Ps. 136.
1 GIVE thanks to God most high,
The sovereign King of kings,
2 How mighty is his hand!
What wonders hath he done!
Shall still endure;
And ever sure
3 He sent his only Son
To save us from our woe,
4 Give thanks aloud to God,
Shall still endure;
