8 Fourth Part. C. M. St. Martin's.
mp 10 THOU, to whom all creatures bow,

Within this earthly frame,
Through all the world, how great art thou!

How glorious is thy name
2 When heaven, thy glorious work on high,

Employs my wondering sight;
The moon that nightly rules

the sky,
With stars of feebler light;
mp 3 Lord, what is man!that thou shouldst choose

To keep him in thy mind!
Or what his race! that thou shouldst prove

To them so wondrous kind!
4 O thou, to whom all creatures bow,

Within this earthly frame;
Through all the world, how great art thou!
How glorious is thy name?

FIFTH PART. C. M. Dundee. f 1 JEHOVAH, Lord of power and might,

How glorious is thy name!
The blaze of day-the pomp of night,

Thy majesty proclaim.
P 2 Lord, what is man-weak, sinful man-

That he thy care should prove;
That thou for him shouldst deign to plan

Such mighty acts of love!
3 Made in thine image at his birth-

Next to the heavenly host,
And sovereign of the new-formed earth,

Each privilege he lost.
4 Then did the pitying Saviour leave

The glories of the sky,
Oh! love too wondrous to conceive!

For sinful man to die,
5 To die, that we, by grace restored,

Might life and glory claim
f ( great Creator, Saviour, Lord,

How excellent thy name!

Sixth PART. S. M. Dover. 1 0 LORD, our heavenly King,

Thy name is all divine;
Thy glories round the earth are spread,

And o'er the heavens they shine.
2 When to thy works on high

I raise my wondering eyes,
And see the moon, complete in light,

Adorn the darksome skies;
3 When I survey the stars,

And all their shining forms,
Lord, what is man—that worthless thing,

Akin to dust and worins?
4 Lord, what is worthless man,

That thou shouldst love him so ?
Next to thine angels is he placed,

And Lord of all below.
5 How rich thy bounties are!

How wondrous are thy ways!
That from the dust, thy power should frame

A monument of praise.

FIRST PART. C. M. Lutzen.
God glorious as a Judge and Deliverer.
1 WITH my whole heart I'll raise my song;

Thy wonders I'll proclaim:
Thou, sovereign Judge of right and wrong,

Wilt put my foes to shame.
2 I'll sing thy majesty and grace;

My God prepares his throne,
To judge the world in righteousness,

And make his vengeance known. mp 3 Then shall the Lord a refuge prove

For all the poor oppressed,

To save the people of his love,
Lon And give the weary rest.
mf 4 The men who know thy name, will trust

In thy abundant grace;
For thou hast ne'er forsook the just,

Who humbly sought thy face.

5 Sing praises to the righteous Lord,

Who dwells on Zion's hill,
Who executes his threatening word,

And doth his grace fulfil.


SECOND PART. C. M. Marlow. 1 WHEN the great Judge, supreme and just,

Shall once inquire for blood,
The humble souls, that mourn in dust,

Shail find a faithful God.
P 2 Thy thunder shall affright the proud,


their hearts to pain,
Make them confess that thou art God,

And they but feeble men.
3 Though saints to sore distress are brought,

And wait, and long complain;
Their cries shall never be forgot,

Nor shall their hopes be vain.
{ 4 Rise, great Redeemer, from thy seat,

To judge and save the poor;
Let nations tremble at thy feet,

And man prevail no more.

Your lofty voices raise;

In judgment seen by all;
The wicked, who his name disown,

By their own works shall fall.
mf 3 O Lord, in majesty arise,

The heathen's power assail;
Exalt thyself above the skies,

And let not man prevail.
[ 4 Thou art, O God, the righteous Lord,

Thy name shall still endure;
Thy throne of judgment, and thy word,

Shall stand for ever sure.

Proclaim the Lord, th' eternal King :
Crown him, ye saints, with holy-joy,

His arm shall all your foes destroy.

Had formed to prayer the wish designed,

On thee the fatherless recline.

Nor sin, nor Satan grieve them more.



10 37 SECOND Part. C. M. Burford.
mp 1 WHY doth the Lord depart so far,

And why conceal his face,
When great calamities appear,

And times of deep distress?

Thy justice and thy power?
Shall they advance their heads in pride,

And still thy saints devour?
mf 3 O God, arise-lift up thine hand,

Attend our humble cry;
No enemy shall dare to stand,

When God, our help, is nigh.
4 Thou wilt prepare our hearts to pray,

And lend thine ear to hear;
Accept the vows thy children pay,

And free thy saints from fear.

The poor shall safety find.

Oh then the humble bless!
And with thy sacred love infold

The poor and fatherless.
-3 God hears his humble followers' voice,

When offered up in prayer;

Who to his house repair.

Who love God's righteous laws;
To them he will protection give,
For ever, from their foes.
