With stars of feebler light ;-

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

To them so wondrous kind!

FIFTH PART. C. M. Dundee. 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-
() great Creator, Saviour, Lord,
How excellent thy name!

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,
p. 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.

f 1 WITH my whole heart I'll raise my song ;

Thy wonders I'll proclaim:

Wilt put my foes to shame.

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,

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.

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

Shail find a faithful God.

And put their

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

And they but feeble men.

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

Nor shall their hopes be vain.

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

And man prevail no more.
