52 An Hymn for Thursdaymorning.

All that is in Heaven and in Earth, is Thine j the Kingdom is Thine: Thou art a Prince exalted above all Things: Thou hast the Dominion over all: Riches and Honour, Power and Might are in thy Hand.

Mow then, O our God, we celebrate and praise thy glorious Name.

What are we, and what is this People, that we should have Power to osier Thee this voluntary Service, and to praise Thee? We are Strangers before Thee, and our Days pass as a Shadow.

Behold, we make bold to speak to Thee, though we are but Dust and Ashes. Lord, accept the voluntary Oblations of our Lips ; let thy Mercy be upon us, O God, according as we have waited on Thee.

Glory be to the Father, &c .

An Hymn for Thursday Morning.

LORD of Hosts, how amiable are thy Tabernacles! My Soul ceases not to desire earnestly: It pants after the Courts of God: My Heart and my Flesh are transported with Joy for the living God. Happy are those that dwell in thy House, and that praise Thee continually.

One Day in thy Courts, is better than a Thousand elsewhere. 1 had rather be a Door-keeper in the House of my God, then to dwell in the Tents of Wickedness. For the Lord is a Sun and a Shield. The Lord gives Grace and Glory: He with-holds not any good Thing from those who walk in Uprightness. Lord of Hosts, happy is the Man that trusts in Thee.

0 God, I will dwell in thy Tabernacle for many Ages: I will hide my self under the Shadow of thy Wings, for Thou, O God, hast heard my Desires, and hast given me the Inheritance of those that fear thy Name.

1 will be always with Thee: Thou hast taken me by the RightHand j Thou shalt guide me by thy Council, and receive me into thy Glory.

Whom"have 1 in Heaven besides Thee: I have had no Delight upon Earth but in Thee. All those that part from Thee shall perish. Thou shalt cut off those that forsake Thee , but as for me, 'tis my Happiness to come near to God.

Glory be to the Father, &c*
