4 Let heaven be glad, let earth rejoice,
Proclaiming loud, " Jehovah reigns ;"
To him, whose power the world suitains. 5 Come, the great day, the glorious hour, When earth shall own his fov'reign power,
And barb'rous nations fear his name ;
Tate and WATTs, united and varied.
Grace and Glory.
O'er all the earth, o'er all the lky;
And hofts celestial join their voice.
But grace and truth support his throne ;
Justice is their eternal ground.
Hate every work of fin and shame;
And from the snares of hell defends. 4 Immortal light, and joys unknown
Are for the faints in darkness fown;
5 Rejoice, ye righteous, and record
The sacred honours of the Lord;
grace Can triumph in his holiness,
psalm XCVIII. Common Metre. [*]
Bleffings of the Meliab's Kingdom.
New honours be address’d;
And makes the nations blefs'd.
His truth fulfils his grace;
And learn his righteousness.
Let earth receive her king ;
And heaven and nature fing.
Let men their fongs employ ; While lands and seas, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the founding joy.
Nor violence abound;
Wherever man is found.
And makes the nations prove
4 The pure, the faithful, and the just,
My favour shall enjoy ;
The fervants I'll employ.
l'll not endure a night ; The liar's tongue l ever hate,
And banish from my sight. 6 I'll purge my family around,
And make the wicked flee;
Psalm CII. First Part, C. M. (*
Prayer keard, and Zion restored.
Behold the promis'd hour !
And will exalt his power.
Are precious in our eyes ;
And all that dust shall rise.
And stand in glory there;
And worship in his fear.
With pity in his eyes;
And fees their wants arise.
And when like wand'ring sheep we stray'd,
He brought us to his fold again. 3 We are his people, we his care,
Our souls and all our mortal frame;
Almighty Maker, to thy name!
Thy truth from age to age endure.
Vast as eternity thy love :

to God my vows;
Teach me to rule my house. 2 Now to my tent, O God, repair,
And make thy servant wise ; I'll fuffer nothing near me there,
That shall oftend thine eyes.
By falsehood or by force;
Disease and death, at his command,
Arrest us, and cut short our days. 2 Spare us, O Lord, aloud we pray,
Nor let our sun go down at noon ;
And must thy people die fo foon?
This tho't our forrow shall affuage ;
Christ is the same thro' ev'ry age.
Heav'n is the building of his hand;
And all be chang'd at his command. 5 The statry.curtains of the sky
Like garments shall be laid aside;
Thy church forever muft abide.
And on thy throne thy children reiga;
Psalm CIII. First Part. L. M.
Praise to God for bis Goodness.
Call home thy tho'ts that rovę abroad; Let all the powers within me join,
In work and worship sa divine. 2 Bless, O my soul, the Gud of grace,
His favours claim thy highest praise į
