But man was form’d to rise to heaven;
And, blest with reason's clearer light, Should view his Maker thro' his works,
And glow with rapture at the sight:
Subject to wants, to thee should look,
And from thy goodness seek supplies : And when oppress'd with guilt should
HYMN LXIII. L. M. TTOW cheerful along the gay mead, .
I The daisy and cowslip appear! The flocks, as they carelessly feed,
Rejoice in the spring of the year. . The myrtles that shade the gay bowers,
The herbage that springs from the sod, Trees, plants, cooling fruits, and sweet
flowers, • All rise to the praise of my God. Shall Man, the great master of all,
The only insensible prove ? Forbid it, fair Gratitude's call !
Forbid it, Devotion and Love!
The Lord, who such wonders could raise,
And still can destroy with a nod, My lips shall incessantly praise,
My heart shall rejoice in my God.
NYHILE Nature's voice is lifted high ..VV To praise the Maker of the sky; And creatures all unite to sing The glories of their sovereign King.
Our grateful hearts, O Lord, would raise
On Thee our lives and souls depend,
O may we now be taught thy grace,
Thus shall some happy fruits appear,
And thus, O Lord, our hearts will raise,
VTERNAL God! Almighty Cause, Of earth, and seas, and worlds unknown! All things are subject to thy laws;
All things depend on thee alone. Thy glorious Being singly stands,
Of all within itself possess'd;
Thou from thyself alone art blest.
Let heaven and earth due homage pay; All other gods we disavow,
Reject their claims, renounce their sway.
Spread thy great Name thro' every land;
All idol deities dethrone;
And reign unrivall'd God alone.
HYMN LXVI. C. M. TTAIL, Father, whose creating call,
DI Unnumber'd worlds attend, Jehovah, comprehending all
Whom none can comprehend.
Thy Godhead we adore,
Thou dwell'st for evermore.
Not quite display'd to worlds above,
Nor quite on earth conceal’d, By wond'rous, unexhausted love,
To mortal man reveal’d.
Supreme and self-sufficient God,
When nature shall expire, And worlds created by thy nod,
Shall perish by thy fire.
Thy name, Jehovah, be ador'd
By creatures without end;
And Spirit comprehend.
THE Lord Jehovah reigns,
Are light and majesty :
The Thunders of his hand,
Keep the wide world in awe; His wrath and justice stand,
To guard his holy Law; And where his love resolves to bless, His truth confirms and seals the grace.
