4 Thy grace shall dwell upon my heart,
And shed its fragrance there;
The cordial of its care.
With iny last labouring breath; And dying, clasp thee in my arms,
The antidote of death.
Praise. Psa. xliv. 8. lxvii. 7. cxxxvi. 1---4.
May an infant lisp thy name?
Thou art ev'ry creature's theme. Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Amen. 2 Lord of ev'ry land and nation,
Ancient of eternal days!
Be thy just and lawful praise.
Grand beyond a seraph's thought,
Works with skill and kindness wrought, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Amen. 4 For thy providence, that governs
Through thine empire's wide domain ;
Blessed he thy gentle reign.
Dark through brightness all along ;
Who dare sing that awful song ?
6 Brightness of the Father's glory,
Sball thy praise unutter'd lie?
Siog the Lord who came to die.

sons of men, with joy record
The various wonders of the Lord ;
Through all your tribes, the earth around. 2 Let the high heavens your songs invite,
Those spacious fields of brilliant light,
And stars, that glow from pole to pole. 3 Sing, earth, in verdant robes array'd,
Its herbs and flow'rs, its fruits and shade :
Of fish, and lowl, and beasts, and worms. 4 View the broad sea's majestic plains,
And think how wide its Maker reigos :
And on each wave his goodness shines. 5 But, O! that brighter world ahove,
Where lives and reigns incarnate love !
For man, a bleeding victim made.
There, in the land of praise, adore ;

All pow'rful from above,
The image of thy love,
2 0, may our sympathizing breasts
That gen'rous pleasure know,
for others' woe!
In low distress are laid,
And swift our hands to aid. 4 So Jesus look'd op dying man,
When thron'd above the skies;
He felt compassion rise.
To raise us from the ground;
A balm for ev'ry wound.

With all-engaging charms !
And folds them in his arms !
“ Nor scorn their humble name ; For 'twas to bless such souls as these,
The Lord of angels came.'
And yield them up to thee ;
Thine let our offspring be.
Ye children, seek his face ;
The blessings of his grace.

Thy guardian care we trust :

Call for songs of loudest praise :
Sung by flaming tongues above :
Mount of God's unchanging love. 2 Herr I raise
And I hope by thy good pleasure,
Safely to arrive at home :
Wand’ring from the fold of God;
Interpos'd with precious blood.
Daily I'm constrain'd to be!
Bind my wand'ring heart to thee!
Prone to leave the God I love-
And ev'ry heart rejoice ;
With an inviting voice,
In a rich ocean join;
Like floods of milk and wine. 3 The happy gates of gospel grace
Stand open night and day ;
Whose fragrance fills the lofty skies ;
A healing halm for every soul. 2 The sick, the weak, the halt, and blind,
