5 There streams of endless pleasure flow; And full discoveries of Thy grace, Which we but tasted here below,
Spread heavenly joys through all the place.
PSALM XVII. L. M.
LORD, I am Thine; but Thou wilt prove
2 What sinners value I resign;
Lord, 'tis enough that Thou art mine:
3 This life's a dream, an empty show;
4 O glorious hour! O blest abode !
5 My flesh shall slumber in the ground
PSALM XVIII, C. M.
10 GOD, my strength and fortitude,
Of force I must love Thee;
Thou art my castle and defence
2 The Lord Jehovah is my God,
3 In my distress I sought my God,
My cry before Him came; He heard
4 The Lord descended from above,
5 On cherub and on cherubim
And on the wings of mighty winds
6 The voice of God did thunder high,
7 And so deliver'd He my soul!
He liveth-Blessed be my Rock!
H He bow'd the sable sky,
E came, the King of kings;
And on the tempest's wings
Walk'd down serene from high; The earth beneath His footsteps shook, The mountains quak'd at His rebuke.
2 Above the storm He stood,
3 Whom shall we love like Thee,
The rock to which we cling.
O for a thousand tongues, to shew
BEHOLD, the morning sun
Begins his glorious way;
His beams through all the nations run,
But where the gospel comes,
It spreads diviner light;
It calls dead sinners from their tombs,
And gives the blind their sight.
3 My gracious God, how plain
I hear Thy word with love,
Send Thy good Spirit from above,
Warn me of every sin,
Forgive my secret faults,
And cleanse this guilty soul of mine,
Whose crimes exceed my thoughts.
While with my heart and tongue I spread Thy praise abroad, Accept the worship and the song, My Saviour and my God.
THE heavens are telling high and wide
The glory of the Lord,
The firmament and deeps of air
2 Day speaks to day-a gushing fount
Day unto day, and night to night,
3 No sound, no converse; all unheard
Their line goes out o'er all the earth,
4 In them the Lord made for the sun
Who like a bridegroom quits his bower
5 Like champion glad to run his course,
6 God's law is perfect and entire,
7 God's rules are even, clear, and straight, Rejoicing all the heart;
And God's command is pure; and light
