O'er the wide world's extended frame, Inscribes in characters of light,
His mighty maker's glorious name. 3. Diffusing life, his influence spreads,
And health and plenty smile around, And fruitful fields, and verdant meads,
Are with a thousand blessing's crown'd.
4. Almighty goodness, power divine,
The fields and verdant meads display; And bless the hand which made them shine, With various charms profusely gay
5. For man and beast, here daily food

And trees, and plants, and herbs, and flowers, Their maker's bounty smiling spread.

OW are thy servants bless'd, O Lord!
Eternal wisdom is their guide,

Thro' burning climes they pass unhurt,
3. When by the dreadful tempest borne
They know thou art not slow to hear,
4. The storm is laid, the winds retire,
The sea, that roars at thy command,

And death, when death shall be our lot,

HEN all thy mercies, O my God, My rising soul surveys: Transported with the view, I'm lost In wonder, love and praise.

3. To all my weak complaints and cries
4. Unnumber'd comforts on my soul
5. When in the slipp'ry path of youth
Thine arm unseen convey'd me safe,

7. Through ev'ry period of my life,
And, after death, in heav'n with thee
8. Through all eternity, to thee
Hymn 142. c. M.
