2 With trembling heart, with solemn eye,
Behold Jehovah seated high,
Your hands can give, your thoughts devise. 3 Let Lebanon her cedars bring
To blaze before the sovereign king;
As victims at his altar bleed.
And call remotest nations round,
Princes and people, kings and swains. 5 Joined with the living, let the dead,
Rising, the face of earth o'erspread;
Let angels echo back the songs.
The dust that hangs upon the scales,
P.M.— The Pardoning Grace of God. Micah vii. 18. 1 GREAT God of wonders! all thy ways
Are matchless, godlike, and divine;
More godlike and unrivall’d shine.
Or who has grace so rich and free? 2 Crimes of such horror to forgive,
Such guilty, daring worms to spare;
And none shall in the honour share:
3 Angels and men resign your claim
To pity, mercy, love, and grace,
With an incomparable blaze:
Or who has grace so rich and free? 4 In wonder lost, with trembling joy,
We take the pardon of our God,
A pardon bought with Jesus' blood :
Or who has grace so rich and free? 5 O may this strange, this matchless grace,
This godlike miracle of love,
And all the angel choirs above:
C.M.— The Goodness of God. Nahum i. 7. 1 YE humble souls approach your God,
With songs of sacred praise,
And kind are all his ways.
In him we live and move;
The wonders of his love.
To ransom rebel worms; 'Tis here he makes his goodness known
In its diviner forms.
'Tis here our hope relies;
When storms of trouble rise.
5 Thine eye beholds with kind regard,
The souls who trust in thee;
With bliss divinely free.
What honours shall we raise?
38. L.M.- Divine Goodness. Ps. xxxiv. 8, 9. 1 TRIUMPHANT Lord, thy goodness reigns
Through all the wide celestial plains;
Down to the abodes of men below. 2 Through nature's works its glories shine;
The cares of providence are thine;
grace erects our ruin'd frame
To taste and feel how good thou art;
To know how blest thy children are. 4 Let nature burst into a song;
Ye echoing hills the notes prolong;
All vocal with your Maker's praise.
Its sweetest notes belong to you;
Invisible to mortal eyes:
The great, the good, the only wise.
2 Whilst nature changes, and her works
Corrupt, decay, dissolve, and die, Thy essence pure no change shall see,
Secure of immortality. 3 Thou great invisible! what hand
Can draw thy image, spotless, fair? To what in heaven, to what on earth,
Can men the immortal King compare? 4 Let stupid heathens frame their gods
Of gold and silver, wood and stone, Our's is the God that made the heavens;
Jehovah he, and God alone. 5 My soul, thy purest homage pay,
In truth and spirit him adore; More shall this please than sacrifice, Than outward forms delight him more.
40. L.M.-" There is none holy as the Lord.” 1 Sam. ij. 2. 1 HOLY as Thee, O Lord, is none!
Thy holiness is all thy own;
Is ours, a drop deriv'd from thee. 2 And when thy purity we share,
Thy only glory we declare;
41. C.M.“ Gracious, long-suffering, and abundant in goodness and 1 THY ceaseless, unexhausted love,
Unmerited and free, Delights our evil to remove,
And helps our misery.
Thou dost with sinners bear:
And all thy grace declare.
Exod. xxxiv. 6.
3 Thy goodness and thy truth to me,
To every soul abound:
Where all our thoughts are drown'd. 4 Its streams the whole creation reach,
So plenteous is the store;
Enough for evermore.
A rock that cannot move:
Thy constancy of love.
The goodness must endure.
C.M.- The Excellency of the Word of God. 1 FATHER of mercies! in thy word
What endless glory shines !
For these celestial lines.
Exhaustless riches find:
And lasting as the mind.
Spreads heavenly peace around;
Attend the blissful sound.
My ever dear delight;
