Why do I thus perplex
Ye foll’wers of the Prince of
HYMNS AND PSALMS.
SI. FOR THE INTRODUCTION OF
1. 7s. M. J. TAYLOR.
Glory to the Most High God. 1 GLORY be to God on high !
God, whose glory fills the sky;
Glory be to God on high!
God, whose glory fills the sky. 2 Favour'd mortals, raise the song ;
Endless thanks to God belong ;
Join the hymns your voices raise. 3 Call the tribes of beings round,
From Creation's utmost bound;
4 Mark the wonders of his hand !
Power, no empire can withstand ;
Goodness, one eternal stream. 5 Happy, who his laws obey,
Them he rules with milder sway:
He hath chosen for his own.
Send thy promis'd blessings down;
Ps. c. 1. 3-5.
1 BEFORE Jehovah's awful throne
Ye nations bow with sacred joy :
He can create, and he destroy. 2 His pow'rful word, which all things made,
Gave life to clay, and form'd us men:
He brought us to his fold again. 3 We are his people, we his care,
Our reas’ning, and our sensual frame :
Almighty Maker, to thy name? 4 We'll crowd thy gates with thankful songs;
High as the heav'ns our voices raise;
And earth, with her ten thousand tongues,
Shall fill thy courts with sounding praise. 5 Wide as the world is thy command;
Vast as eternity thy love;
A Lord's day hymn.
Ascended to the skies;
And to the heav'n arise.
From this celestial road;
soul from God. 3 Think of the splendors of that place,
The joys that are on high ; Nor meanly rest contented here,
With worlds beneath the sky.
Thither at length, they tend ;
Aş Father and as Friend.
My comfort and defence,
And death shall call me hence.
Public and social worship. Ps. 84.
1 What pleasure, Lord! thy house attends
When the whole heart to heav'n ascends ; One day thus spent with thee on earth,
Exceeds a thousand days of mirth.
Within thy house, O God of grace,
For all a tempting world can give.
Who know thee, as themselves are known: Thy brightest glories shine above,
And all their work is praise and love. 4 Happy the souls that find a place
In earthly temples of thy grace:
Inquire thy will, and learn to praise. 5 Happy the men whose hearts are set
To find the way to Zion's gate :
They lean upon their helper, God. 6 Cheerful they walk with growing strength,
Till all shall meet in heav'n at length,
