That sav'd, we may thy goodness feel,
3. Thy goodness and thy truth, to me, To ev'ry soul abound;
A vast unfathomable sea,
Where all our thoughts are drown'd. 4. Its streams the whole creation reach, So plent❜ous is the store; Enough for all, enough for each, Enough for evermore.
5. Faithful, O Lord, thy mercies are,
6. Throughout the universe it reigns
And while the truth of God remains,
Hymn 313. P. M.
'LL praise my Maker whilst I've breath, And when my voice is lost in death, Praise shall employ my nobler pow'rs: My days of praise shall ne'er be past, Whilst life, and thought, and being last, Or immortality endures.
2. Happy the man whose hopes rely On Israel's God who made the sky,
And earth, and seas, with all their train: His truth for ever stands secure ! He saves th' oppress'd, he feeds the poor, And none shall find his promise vain. 3. The Lord pours eye-sight on the blind; The Lord supports the fainting mind:
He sends the labʼring conscience peace;
He helps the stranger in distress,
And grants the pris'ner sweet release. 4. I'll praise him while he lends me breath, And when my voice is lost in death,
Praise shall employ my nobler pow'rs: My days of praise shall ne'r be past Whilst life, and thought, and being last, Or immortality endures.

3. Now I see, with joy and wonder,
Down to all, to me it flows.
Glory, glory is his own.
5. Angels now are hovʼring round us,
Hymn 318. P. M.
E boundless realms of joy,
His praise your songs employ,
. Thou moon that rul'st the night,
His praise declare, ye heav'ns above,

He sets them up on high;
