1 Let all the earth their voices raise
To sing the choicest psalm of praise,
And bless Jehovah's name;
His glory let the nations know,
His wonders let the nations show,
And all his works proclaim.
2 He framed the globe, he built the sky,
He made the shining worlds on high,
And reigns in glory there;
His beams are majesty and light.
His beauties how divinely bright!
And how divinely fair!
Come the great day, the glorious hour!
When earth shad feel his saving power,
And nations fear his name;
Then shidl the race of man confess,
The beauty of his holiness.
And all his grace proclaim.
1 How liappy are the little flock,
Who safe beneath their guardian Rock,
In all commotions rest;
AVhen wars and tumults' waves run high,
Unmoved above the storm they lie,
And lodge in Jesus, breast.
2 The plague, and dearth, and din of war,
Our Savior's swift approach declare,
And bid our hearts arise;
Earth's basis shook, confirms our hope:
Its cities' fall but lifts us up
To meet thee in the skies.
3 Thy tokens we with joy confess.
The war proclaims thee Prince of Peace:
The earthquake speaks thee near.
The famine all thy fullness brings:
'J'he plague presents thy healing wings.
And sinners quake with fear.
4 Whatever ills the world befall,
A pledge of endless good we call,
A sign of Jesus near;
His chariot will not long delay:
We hear the ruml)ling wheels and pray,
"Triumphant Lord, appear!"

The Lamb tiiat once was shiin
from the skies, Up - on

2 The trumpet sounds, its joyful voice
Is heard o'er land and sea ;
And saints arising now rejoice
To live eternally.
3 Yes, they shall live forevermore,
Secure from toil and pain;
And on that bright and happy shore,
With their Redeemer reign.
4 All hail that brioht, eternal day,
When David's rightful heir
Shall take the throne and hold the sway.
In glorious triumph there.
1 God moves in a mysterious way.
His wonders to perform ;
He plants his footsteps in the sea,
And rides upon the storm.
2 Deep in unfathomable mines,
Of never-failing skill;
He treasures up his bright designs,
And works his soveieign will.
3 Ye fearful saints, fresh coinage take.
The cloiuls ye so much dread
Are big with mercy, and shall break
In blessings on your head.
4 Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,
But trust him for his grace;
Behind a frowning providence,
He hides a smiling face.
5 His purposes will ripen fast,
Unfolding every hour;
The bud m;iy have a bitter taste,
But sweet will be the flower.
6 Blind unbelief ih sure to err^
And scan his works in vain,
God is his own interpreter.
And he will make it plain.
1 Let Zion and her sons rejoice,
Behold the promised hour;
Her God hath heard her mourning voice.
And comes to exalt his power.
2 Her dust and ruins that remain
Are precious in his eyes;
Those ruins shall be built again.
And all that dust shall rise.
3 The Lord will raise Jerusalem,
And stand in glory there;
Nations shall bow befce his name.
And kings attend with fear.
4 He sits a sovereign on his throne.
With pity in his eyes;
He hears the dying prisoners' groan,
And sees their sighs arise.
h He frees the souls condemned to death.
Nor, when his saints complain.
Shall it be said that pniying breath.
Was ever spent in vain.
6 This shall be known when we are dead.
And leit on long accord,
That nations yet unborn may read.
And trust and praise the Lord.

Could we for one of thousand faults
A just excuse devise?

Contend with such a God?
None, none can meet him, and escape,
But through the Savior's blood.

Behold the open door;
Hasten to gain that dear abode,
And rove, my soul, no more.

There, sweet shall be thy rest.
And ev'ry longing satisfied.
With full salvation blest.

Again the earth shall fill.
The Ark shall ride the sea of fire;
Then rest on Sion's hill.

Far as the rolling clouds can fly,
Thy sacred truth extends.

Thy justice holds its sway;
Deep as the depths old ocean fills,

How precious is thy love.
That spreads the shadow of its wings
Our trusting race above.
4 Thy household's fulness sweet
Shall sate onr longing dreams:
And thine own Eden's joyous seat,
Shall pour refreshing streams.
5 For thine is life's pure rill.
Thine is the light of light:
Oh, give thy saints thy mercy still,
And give the righteous right.

That turns the ocean-wave to foam;
Nor less of wondrous power I find.
When summer airs around me roam:
The tempest and the calm declare
Thyself, for thou art everywhere.
3 I find thee in the moon of night.
And read thy name in every star
That drinks its splendor from the light
That flows from mercy's beaming car:
Thy footstool. Lord, each starry gem
Composes, not thy diadem.

Hath tipp'd the mountain-tops with

Shrinks from the wonders I behold:
