4 Let heaven be glad, let earth rejoice,
Proclaiming loud, " Jehovah reigns ;"
To him, whose power the world sustains. 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. H' Almighty reigns exalted high,
O'er all the earth, o'er all the iky; Let the whole earth in songs rejoice,
And hofts celestial join their voice.
But grace and truth support his throne ;
Justice is their eternal ground. 3 Ye, who confess his holy name,
Hate every work of fin and shame;
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
Let all the nation's fear;
And saints be humble there. 2 Exalt the Lord our God!
And worship at his feet; His nature is all holiness, And mercy
is his feat.
When Aaron was his priest,
He gave his people rest.
Nor would destroy their race;
When they abus'd his grace. 5
Exalt the Lord our God,
Whose grace is still the same;
Psalm c. Long Metre.
Praise to our Creator
Know that the Lord is God alone,
He can create, and he destroy. 2. His sovereign power, without our aid,
Made us of clay, and form’d us men;
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
