The wonders he has done.

And death's eternal shade.

While prayer employed my tongue,
The Lord had shown me no regard,

Nor I his praises sung.

Has set my spirit free;
He ne'er rejected my request,

Nor turned his heart from me.

Crown him, ye nations, in your song:

Ye saints, rejoice before his face.

When terrors rise-when nations faint,
He is the strength of every saint.

[blocks in formation]

NI LORD, when thou didst ascend on high,

Ten thousand angels filled the sky;
Those heavenly guards around thee wait,
Like chariots, that attend thy state.
2 Not Sinai's mountain could appear

More glorious, when the Lord was there;
While he pronounced his holy law,

And struck the chosen tribes with awe.
3 How bright the triumph none can tell,
When the rebellious powers of hell,
That thousand souls had captive made,
Were all in chains, like captives, led.
4 Raised by his Father to the throne,

He sent his promised Spirit down,
With gifts and grace for rebel men,.
That God might dwell on earth again.

The Goodness and Compassion of God.

Who showers his blessings from above;

The hope and saviour of the just.

The weak and humble he relieves; mf

Supported by his grace we stand,
For life and death are in his hand.

The widow and the fatherless;
And, from his holy seat above,

Supports them with his tender love.

Shall in his promises rejoice ;
With gladness in their hearts, shall raise,
Before his throne, triumphant praise.
