TATE. .

1 0 PRAISE ye the Lord,

Prepare your glad voice,
His praise in the great
Assembly to sing :
In their great Creator
Let all men rejoice,
And heirs of salvation

Be glad in their King.
2 With glory adorned,

His people shall sing
To God, who defence
And plenty supplies ;
Their loud acclamations
To him their Great King,
Through earth shall be sounded,
And reach to the skies.

S. M.

Watts. 1 Thy name, Almighty Lord,

Shall sound through distant lands;
Great is thy grace, and sure thy word;

Thy truth forever stands. 2 Far be thine honor spread,

And long thy praise endure,
Till morning light and evening shade

Shall be exchanged no more.

156.

L. M.

WATTS.

1 From all that dwell below the skies,

Let the Creator's praise arise ;
Let the Redeemer's name be sung
Through every land, by every tongue.

2 Eternal are thy mercies, Lord;

Eternal truth attends thy word :
Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore,
Till suus shall rise and set no more.

X. THE GLORIOUS FUTURE.

P. M.

1 God shall be all in all :

And then shall marshalled warriors,
No more upon the plain,
Renew their battle fury,
To multiply the slain;
Then shall the peaceful era,
By Zion's bards foretold,
With all its promised glory,

The ransomed world enfold. 2 God shall be all in all :

And then the horrid slaver
Shall cross the waves no more,
Defenceless men to ravish
From Afric's injured shore ;
And all the sable millions,
In bordage held abroad,
Present the grateful tribute,

To their Redeeming God. 3 God shall be all in all :

'The church, long torn with faction,
Will lay each quarrel by,
And all her jealous watchmen,
See clearly eye to eye;
Attired in bridal garments,
She'll take her Lord's right hand,
And free from spot or wrinkle,
Fulfil his high command.

4 God shall be all in all :

And then shall dark rebellion
Against his holy throne
Be hushed in endless silence,
Where'er his name is known;
The all-prevailing Victor
Will make an end of sins,
And only yield his sceptre,
When perfect love begins.

1 Roll on, O Lord, the latter day,

When grace shall reign alone ;
And all the nations of the world,

Shall bow before thy throne. 2 Then shall pure converts crowd to Christ,

And bless the gospel sound;
While grace eternal sweetly shines,

To ravish all arounda 3 Then shall the watchmen of the Lamb,

Exalt the cross on high ;
And with a clear refulgent light,

Shall all see eye to eye.
4 Thus shall the glorious gospel fly;

To sound the Savior forth;
T'ill faith, and love, and joys divine,

Shall run through all the earth. 5 Then war shall cease, and wrath subside,

And peace immortal flow;
And saints unite in joy and peace,

And glory reign below.

DODDRIDGE. 1 Mark the soft falling snow,

And the descending rain !
To heaven, from whence it fell,
It turns not back again ;

But waters earth,
Through every pore,
And calls forth all

Her secret store.
2 Arrayed in beauteous green,

The hills and vallies shine,
And man and beast are fed
By providence divine;

The harvest bows
Its golden ears,
The copious seed

Of future years.
3 So, saith the God of grace,

My gospel shall descend,
Almighty to effect
The purpose I intend ;

Millions of souls
Shall feel its power,
And bear it down
To millions more.

160.

C. M. RIPPON'S COL. 1 LORD, let the gospel tidings spread

The spacious earth around,
Till every tribe and every soul

Shall hear the joyful sound?
