FROM VARIOUS AUTHORS.
HYMN 1. L. M. Old Hundred. [*]
HERE is a God-all nature speaks,
o See from the clouds his glory breaks, [skies; When the first beams of morning rise. -2 The rising sun, serenely bright, O'er the wide world's extended frame, Inscribes, in characters of light, His mighty Maker's glorious name. o 3 The flow'ry tribes all blooming rise, Above the weak attempts of art; e The smallest worms, the meanest flies, Speak sweet conviction to the heart. -4 Ye curious minds, who roam abroad, And trace creation's wonders o'er, e Confess the footsteps of the God;a Bow down before him—and adore.
HYMN 2. C. M. Tunbridge. [b*]
1 YE humble souls, approach your God,
For he is good, immensely good,
2 All nature owns his guardian care;
• But nobler benefits declare
The wonders of his love.
e 3 He gave his Son, his only Son,
-Tis here he makes his goodness known,
e 4 To this dear refuge, Lord, we come ;
o A safe defence, a peaceful home, When storms of trouble rise.
-5 Thine eye beholds, with kind regard, The souls who trust in thee;
Their humble hope thou wilt reward,
o 6 Great God, to thy almighty Love
HYMN 3. C. M. Mitcham. Arundel. [*]
God the Creator.
1 ETERNAL Wisdom, thee we praise;
Thee the creation sings;
With thy lov'd name, rocks, hills, and seas, And heaven's high palace rings.
g 2 Thy hand,-how wide it spread the sky! How glorious to behold!
-Ting'd with a blue of heavenly die,
3 Thy glories blaze, all nature round,
g 4 Infinite strength, and equal skill, Shine through the worlds abroad, e Our souls with vast amazement fill, And speak the builder-God.
-5 But still the wonders of thy grace
HYMN 4. C. M. Bedford. [*]
a 1 KEEP silence--all created things,
And wait your Maker's
My soul stands trembling while she sings
e 2 Life, death, and hell, and worlds unknown, Hang on his firm decree;
He sits on no precarious throne,
Nor borrows leave-to be.
3 Chain'd to his throne a volume lies, With all the fates of men;
With ev'ry angel's form and size,
-4 His providence unfolds the book,
HYMN 5. L. P. M. St. Helen's. [*]
And mark what beaming glories shine Around thy condescending God! To us-to us, he still proclaims e His awful, his endearing names; Attend, and sound them all abroad. d 2 'Jehovah I, the sovereign Lord, "The mighty God, by heaven ador'd,
'Down to the earth my footsteps bend: e 'My heart the tenderest pity knows, 'Goodness, full-streaming, wide o'erflows, 'And grace and truth shall never end. 3 'My patience long can crimes endure, 'My pard'ning love is ever sure,
'When penitential sorrow mourns; To millions, through unnumber'd years, 'New hope and new delight it bears;
'Yet wrath against the sinner burns.'
