(to Thee; Gratefully adoring our songs shall rise Holy, Holy, Holy! Merciful and
Mighty! God in Three Persons,blessed Trinity ! 2 Holy, Holy, Holy! all the saints adore

1010.1111. 2 "All Thy works praise Thee, O Lord, and Thysaints shall bless Thee.”—Ps.cxlv.10. i O WORSHIP the King
All glorious above;
His power and His love;
The Ancient of days,
And girded with praise.
O sing of His grace,
Whose chariots of wrath
The deep thunder-clouds form, And dark is His path
On the wings of the storm. 3 The earth with its store
Of wonders untold,
Hath founded of old :
By a changeless decree,
Like a mantle, the sea. 4 Thy bountiful care
What tongue can recite ?
It shines in the light;
It descends to the plain,
In the dew and the rain. 5 Frail children of dust,
And feeble as frail;
Nor find Thee to fail;
How firm to the end !
Redeemer, and Friend! 6 O measureless might!
To hymn Thee above,
Though feeble their lays,
