3 That sin, that close besets me still,
That works and strives against my will —
Destroy it, that it rise no more?
Deals out to mortals their reward :
A God more faithful, and more kind.
Thou art more pure, more just than they;
18 Fourth PART. L. M. Appleton. 1 JUST are thy ways, and true thy word,
Great Rock of my secure abode;
Or where's a refuge like our God?
Gives me his holy sword to wield;
Spreads his salvatïon for my shield.
The God of my salvation lives;
While heavenly peace my Father gives.
18 FIFTH PART. C. M. St. Martin's. 1 NO change of time shall ever shock
My trust, O Lord, in thee;
A sure defence to me.
Our trust is in thy power;
Our safeguard, and our tower. mp3 To thee will we address our prayer,
To whom all praise we owe;
4 Then let Jehovah be adored,
On whom our hopes depend;
His people can defend.
SIXTH PART. C. M. London.
Jehovah coming to reign.
And bowed the heavens most high,
The darkness of the sky.
Full royally he rode,
Came flying all abroad.
Their fury to restrain;
For evermore shall reign.
18 SEVENTH PART. 8s. & 78. Suffolk.
He's my rock, I bless his name:
All ye lands, exalt his fame.
Shall his righteous throne extend:
Earth shall at his footstool bend.
Great Redeemer !-see him rise!
God supports him to the skies.
There forever to abide ;
19 FIRST PART. L. P. M. St. Helen's.
Delight and Instruction from the Bible.
What light and joy those leaves afford
Thy promise leads my heart to rest.
But 'tis thy blessed gospel, Lord,
And gives a free, but large reward.
And from presumptuous sins restrain:
SECOND PART. L. M. Danvers.
With all the blue ethereal sky,
Their great Original proclaim.
Does his Creator's power display,
The work of an almighty hand.
The moon takes up the wondrous tale,
Repeats the story of her birth;-
And all the planets, in their turn,
P 5 What! though in solemn silence all
Move round this dark terrestrial ball-
Amid their radiant orbs be found
And utter forth a glorious voice;
THIRD PART. L. M. Hebron.
In every star thy wisdom shines;
We read thy name in fairer lines.
And nights, and days, thy power confess;
Reveals thy justice and thy grace. 3 Sun, moon, and stars, convey thy praise
Round the earth-and never stand; So when thy truth began its race,
It touched and glanced on every land. mf 4 Nor shall thy spreading, gospel rest,
Till through the world thy truth has run; 'Till Christ has all the nations blest,
Which see the light, or feel the sun. 5 Great Sun of Righteousness, arise!
Oh bless the world with heavenly light! Thy gospel makes the simple wise :
Thy laws are pure-thy judgments right. 6 Thy noblest wonders here we view,
In souls renewed and sins forgiven :Lord, cleanse my sins-my soul renew,
And make thy word my guide to heaven.
FOURTA PART. C. M. Dunchurch.
Deliverance from Sin implored.
Reclaims from false desires;
The ignorant inspires.
2 But what frail man observes how oft
He does from virtue fall?
Thou God that know'st them all!
With thy acceptance blest;
My Strength and Saviour, rest.
FIFTH PART. S, M. Haverhill. 1 I HEAR thy word with love,
And I would fain obey ;
To guide me, lest I stray.
The error of his ways?
I would not dare transgress.
Forgive my secret faults,
Whose crimes exceed my thoughts."
I spread thy praise abroad,
My Saviour, and my God.
Declares its maker God;
Proclaim his power abroad.
Still keep their course the same;
Divinely teach his name.
Their general voice is known;
And orders of his throne.
