150 SECOND PART. L. M. Rothwell. f" PRAISE ye the Lord_let praise employ,
In his own courts, your songs of joy ;
The spacious firmament around
Shall echo back the joyful sound.

His wondrous works-how bright they shine!
Praise him for all his mighty deeds,
Whose greatness all your praise exceeds.
3 Awake the trumpet's lofty sound,
To spread your sacred pleasure round;
Awake each voice-and strike each string,
And to the solemn organ sing.

Attend, and join the blissful choir
But chiefly ye, who know his word,
Adore, and love, and praise the Lord !

His grace he there reveals;
To heaven your joy and wonder raise,
For there his glory dwells.

While you rehearse his deeds;
But still the work of saving love,
Your highest praise exceeds.
3 All that have motion, life, and breath,
Proclaim your Maker blest;
Yet when my voice expires in death,
My soul shall praise him best.
150 Fourtú Part. 68 & 4s. Italian Hymn.
PRAISE ye Jehovah's name,
Praise through his courts proclaim,
Rise and adore :
High o'er the heavens above
Sound his great acts of love,
While his rich grace we prove,
Vast as his power.
2 Now let the trumpet raise
Sounds of triumphant praise,
Wide as his fame :
There let the harp be found;
Organs, with solemn sound,
Roll your deep
Filled with his name.
3 While his high praise ye sing,
Shake every sounding string;
Sweet the accord !
He vital breath bestows;
Let every breath that flows
His noblest fame disclose-
Praise ye the Lord. 150 Fifth PART. 7s. Lincoln.
PRAISE the Lord-his glory bless-
Praise him in his holiness;
Praise him as the theme inspires,
Praise him as his fame requires.
2 Let the trumpet's losty sound
Spread its loudest notes around;
Let the harp unite in praise,
With the sacred minstrel's lays.
3 Let the organ join to bless
God, the Lord of righteousness;
Tune your voice to spread the fame
Of the great Jehovah's name.

In his praise your hearts unite;
While the stream of song is poured,
Praise and magnify the Lord.

PRAISE-oh praise the name divine,
Praise him at the hallowed shrine ;
Let the firmament on high
To its Maker's praise reply.

In his praise that breath employ;
Heaven and earth the chorus join;
Praise-oh praise the name divine.
TO God the Father-God the Son,
And God the Spirit—three in one,
Be honor, praise, and glory given,
By all on earth-and all in heaven.
LET God, the Father, and the Son,
And Spirit be adored,
Where there are works to make him known,
Or saints to love the Lord.
YE angels round the throne,
And saints that dwell below,
Worship the Father--love the Son,
And bless the Spirit too.
TO God the Father's throne
Perpetual lionors raise;
Glory to God the Son ;
To God the Spirit praise :
With all our powers, Thy name we sing,
While faith adores.
SING we to our God above
Praise eternal as his love.
Praise him, all ye heavenly host,
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

GREAT Jehovah! we adore thee,

On the same eternal throne:
To Jehovah, three in one.
