ENFIELD. Praise to the Lord of Nature. 1 0 Thou! through all thy works adored,
Great power supreme, almighty Lord !
Creatures of every tribe obey:
And in thy wondrous works rejoice. 3 Planets, those wandering worlds above,
Guided by thee, incessant move;
4 From thee proceed heaven's varied store,
The changing wind, the fruitful shower, The flying cloud, the colored bow,
The moulded hail, the feathered snow. 5 Tempests obey thy mighty will;
Thine awful mandate to fulfil,
And rive the oak, and blast the ground. 6 Yet pleased to bless, kind to supply,
Thy hand supports thy family,
85. 7s. M. SANDYS.
Harmony of Praise.
Thou, in whom we live and move!
God from all eternity!
'Tis when tongues and hearts consent, Grateful hearts, and joyful tongues,
Hymning thee in tuneful songs !
When the stars of evening rise,
Sovereign Ruler! rnighty Lord ! 4 Decks the spring with flowers the field?
Harvest rich doth autumn yield?
Lord, from thee these blessings flow. 5 Sovereign Ruler! mighty Lord !
We thy praises will record :
S. M. WATTS.
Our Saviour and our King,
Their humble praises bring.
2 Tis his almighty love,
His counsel and his care,
And every hurtful snare.
Unblemished and complete,
With joys divinely great.
Shall meet around the throne, Shall bless the conduct of his grace,
And make his wonders known.
Wisdom and power belongs,
And everlasting songs.
7s. M. MONTGOMERY.
Glory to God in the highest.
Heaven with hallelujahs rang,
When he spake, and it was done. 2 Songs of praise awoke the morn,
When the Prince of peace was born;
Captive led captivity.
Songs of praise shall crown that day;
4 And will man alone be dumb,
Till that glorious kingdom come?
Psalms and hymns and songs of praise. 5 Saints below, with heart and voice,
Still in songs of praise rejoice;
Songs of praise to sing above. 6 Borne upon the latest breath,
Songs of praise shall conquer death;
ATTRIBUTES AND PROVIDENCE OF GOD.
88. C. P. M.
On which all things depend;
Commence, and reign, and end. 2 The world, the clustering spheres he made, The glorious light, the soothing shade;
Dale, plain, and grove and hill;
And wisdom hides her skill.
And smitten to the heart,
Replied, O Lord, THOU ART!
