C. M. Litchfield. 1 HOW are thy servants blest! O Lord,

How sure is their defence !
Eternal wisdom is their guide,

Their help, omnipotence.
2 In foreign realms, and lands remote,

Supported by thy care,
Through burning climes they pass unhurt,

And breathe in tainted air.
<3 When, by the dreadful tempest, borne

High on the broken wave,
They know thou art not slow to hear,

Nor impotent to save.
4 The storm is laid-the winds retire,

Obedient to thy will;
The sea, that roars at thy command,

At thy command is still.
5 In midst of danger, fear, and death,

Thy goodness we'll adore;
We'll praise thee for thy mercies past,

And humbly hope for more.

107 THIRD PART. C. M. St. Ann's.
111 OH praise the Lord-for he is good,

In him we rest obtain;
His mercy has through ages stood,

And ever shall remain.
2 Let all the people of the Lord

His praises spread around;
Let them his grace and love record,

Who have salvation found.
3 Now let the east in him rejoice,

The west its tribute bring,
The north and south lift up their voice

In honor of their King.
4 Oh praise the Lord--for he is good,

In him we rest obtain;
His mercy has through ages stood,

And ever shall remain.



4 Be thou, O God, exalted high

Above the starry frame;
And let the world, with one consent,

Confess thy glorious name.
108 THIRD PART. C. M. Howard's.
1 AWAKE, my soul, to sound his praise,

Awake, my harp, to sing ;
Join, all my powers, the song to raise,

And morning incense bring. 2 Among the people of his care,

And through the nations round,
Glad songs of praise will I prepare,

And there his name resound. 3 Be thou exalted, O my God,

Above the starry frame;
Diffuse thy heavenly grace abroad,

And teach the world thy name.
4 So shall thy chosen sons rejoice,

And throng thy courts above;
While sinners hear thy pardoning voice,

And taste redeeming love.

110 FIRST Part. L. M. Appleton.

Christ exalted as a King and Saviour.
"1 THUS God, the eternal Father, spake

To Christ the Son_“Ascend and sit
At my right hand, till I shall make

Thy foes submissive at thy feet.
2 From Zion shall thy word proceed;

Thy word, the sceptre in thy hand,
Shall make the hearts of rebels bleed,

And bow their wills to thy command.
3 That day shall show thy power is great,

When saints shall flock with willing minds;
And sinners crowd thy temple-gate,

Where holiness in beauty shines.”
4 O blessed power! O glorious day!

How large a victory shall ensue!
And converts, who thy grace obey,

Exceed the drops of morning dew.

110 SECOND PART. C. M. Medford.
11 1 JESUS, our Lord, ascend thy throne,

And near thy Father sit;
In Zion shall thy power be known,

And make thy foes submit.
2 What wonders shall thy gospel do!

Thy converts shall surpass
The numerous drops of morning dew,

And own thy sovereign grace.
3 Jesus, our priest, forever lives

To plead for us above;
Jesus, our king, forever gives

The blessings of his love.
4 God shall exalt his glorious head,

And his high throne maintain;
Shall strike the powers and princes dead,

Who dare oppose his reign.

FIRST Part. C. M. Marlow.
The Works and Grace of God celebrated.
"1 SONGS of immortal praise belong

To my almighty God;
He has my heart-and he my tongue,

To spread his name abroad.
2 How great the works his hand has wrought!

How glorious in our sight!
And men in every age have sought

His wonders with delight.
3 When he redeemed his chosen sons,

He fixed his covenant sure:
The orders that his lips pronounce

To endless years endure.

Demand our noblest songs ;

Their harmony of tongues.
