The Ways of the Righteous kpowd to God.'
My soul enjoys the thought;
Nor are my wants forgot.
Is vocal to thioe ear ;
Before thine eye appear.
approve ; And ev'ry pang of sympathy,
And ev'ry care of love.
Is gilded by thy rays;
A present God surveys.
And in thy view I die :
May I still find thee nigh!
HYMN 199. P. M.
Delighting in divine Goodness.
I trace with wonder and delight ;
Thy name is all divine :
But is entirely thine.
And sacred pleasure yield ;
And ev'ry want is fill’d.
3 To thee my warm affections move, In sweet astonishment and love,
While at thy feet I fall; I
pant for nought beneath the skies, To thee my ardent wishes rise,
Or how thy name adore ? To thee I consecrate my breath, Let me be thine in life and death,
Aad thine for evermore.
HYMN 200. C. M.
The Goodness and Mercy of God.
O God, my beav'nly King !
Io gounds of glory sing.
His goodness to the skies ;
And ev'ry want supplies.
On thee for daily food,
And fills their mouths with good.
How slow thine anger moves !
To cheer the souls he loves.
Thy pow'r and praise proclaim ; But saints, who taste thy richer grace, Delight to bless thy name.
HYMN 201. L. M.
God the intellectual Light.
With yocreated glories bright!
Th' unchanging Source of light and love. 2 Our rising earth his eye beheld,
When in substantial darkness veil'd ;
Lay buried in eternal gloom.
And light o'er all its face was spread ;
Gay with its new-boru lustre, shone. 4 He sees the mind, when lost it lies
In shades of ignorance and vice ;
And changes midnight into day.
On this benighted heart of mine ;
As in the Saviour's face beheld.
In radiant lines shali stand confess'd ;
HYMN 202. O. M.
Mysterious are thy ways !
And trackless in the seas. 2 Yet the whole peopled world bespeaks
Thy being and thy pow'r 'Midst the resplendent blaze of day,
And awful midnight hour.
3 Nor all the peopled world alone,
Rich fields and verdant plains, But lonely wilds by man uotrod,
Where silent horror reigos. 4 Tempests and storms that sweep the sky, And cataracts sublime
i Volcanoes, earthquakes, burricanes,
That waste the torrid clime ; 5 Vast caverns deep, and cloud-topt bills
Huge mountains rude and bare, Terrific rocks and swelling waves
The grandeur all declare. 6 Through all creation's widest range
The hand of heaven is near: Where'er I wander in the world,
Lo! God is present there.
HYMN 203. P. M.
God's government Zion's joy.
The royal honours of his pame;
• Jebovab reigns,' be all your song, 'Tis he tby God, o Zion, reigns ; Prepare thy most harmonious strains,
Glad hallelujahs to prolong. 2 Ye princes, boast po more your crown, But lay the glittering trifle down
In lowly honour at his feet ; А
spao your parrow empire bounds; He reigns beyond created rounds,
In self-sufficient glory great.
Down to the dust your sceptres bend;
When kings and suns, and time shall end.
4 So shall his favour'd Zion live; In vain coofed 'rate nations strive
Her sacred turrets to destroy; Her sov'reign sits enthron'd above And endless pow'r, and endless love,
Insure her safety and her joy.
WITH eye impartial, heav'n’s high King
HYMN 204. C. M.
God no Respecter of Persons.
, Nor wealth his favour bribe. 2 The rich and poor, of equal clay
His powr'tul hand did frame; All souls are his, and him alike
Their comon Parent claim. 3 Ye sons of men of high degree,
Your great Superior own; Praise him for all bis gifts, and pay
Your homage at bis tbrone. 4 Trust in the Lord, ye
poor, And banish ev'ry fear ; The God you serve will ne'er forsake
The man of heart sincere.
HYMN 205. L. M.
The Bounty of Providence improved.
Who kindlest up the lamp of day;
His beains thy pow'r and love display. 2 Fountain of good! from thee proceeds,
In copious drops, the genial rain,
Revive the grass, and swell the grain.
Yet millions of our guilty race,
