Imatges de pÓgina

3 Through all the earth, the nations round

Shall thee, their God, confess;
And, with glad hymns, their awful dread

Of thy great name express.
4 Oh come, behold the works of God;

And then with me you'll own,
That he, to all the sons of men,

Has wondrous judgments shown.
5 Let all

the lands, with shouts of joy,
To God their voices raise;
Sing psalms in honor of his name,

And spread his glorious praise.

THIRD PART. C. M. Marlow. 1 SING, all ye nations, to the Lord,

Sing with a joyful noise;
With melody of sound record

His honors and your joys.

How terrible art thou !
Sinners before thy presence fly,

Or at thy feet they bow.
f 3 Oh bless our God, and never cease;

Ye saints, fulfil his praise ;
He keeps our life-maintains our peace,

And guides our doubtful ways.

Fourth Part. C. M. Clarendon.

Praise for Redemption.
1 NOW shall my solemn vows be paid

To that almighty power,
Who heard the long request I made

In my distressful hour.
1 2 My lips and cheerful heart prepare

To make his mercies known;
Come, ye who fear my God, and hear

The wonders he has done.
- 3 When on my head deep sorrows fell,

I sought his heavenly aid;
He saved my sinking soul from hell,

And death's eternal shade.

And the world's remotest bound
With the voice of praise resound.

The Majesty of Jehovah. f! 1 KINGDOMS and thrones to God belong ;

Crown him, ye nations, in your song:

His name, Jehovah, sounds on high :
Praise him aloud ye sons of grace;

Ye saints, rejoice before his face.

God is our King-proclaim him blest:
When terrors rise-when nations faint,
He is the strength of every saint.
