Since God does thus His wondrous love

Through all my life extend,
That life to Him I will devote,

And in His temple spend.


N. V. I. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

This spacious earth is all the Lord's,

The Lord's her fulness is;
The world, and they that dwell therein,

By sov'reign right are His.
He framed and fix'd it on the seas,

And His Almighty hand
Upon inconstant floods has made

The stable fabric stand.
But for Himself the Lord of all

One chosen seat design'd;
.1. O who shall to that sacred hill

Desired admittance find ?
The man whose hands and heart are pure,

Whose thoughts from pride are free ;
Who honest poverty prefers

To gainful perjury.
This, this is he, on whom the Lord

Shall shower His blessings down,
Whom God his Saviour shall vouchsafe
With righteousness to crown.

N. V.
7, 8, 9, 10.


heads, eternal gates,
Unfold to entertain
The King of glory; see, He comes

With His celestial train.

Who is this King of glory? who?

The Lord for strength renown'd;
In battle mighty, o'er His foes

Eternal victor crown'd.
Erect your heads, ye gates, unfold

In state to entertain
The King of glory; see, He comes

With all His shining train.
Who is this King of glory? who?

The Lord of hosts renown'd; Of glory He alone is King,

Who is with glory crown'd.

5, 6, 7.
THY mercies manifold
Remember, Lord, I

pray: In pity Thou art plentiful,

And so hast been alway.
Remember not the faults

And frailty of my youth ;
Call not to mind how ignorant

I have been of Thy truth :
Nor after my deserts

Let me Thy mercy find;
But of Thine own benignity,

Lord, have me in Thy mind.

N. V.




1. 6. 8.
To God, in whom I trust,
I lift

heart and voice;
O let me not be put to shame,

Nor let my foes rejoice.

Thy mercies and Thy love

O Lord, recall to mind;
And graciously continue still,

As Thou wert ever, kind.

and His truth
The righteous Lord displays,
In bringing wand'ring sinners home,

And teaching them His ways.



You that are of princely birth,
Praise the Lord of heaven and earth;
Glory give, His power proclaim;
Magnify and praise His Name.
Hark! His voice with terror breaks :
God, our God, in thunder speaks.
Powerful in His voice on high,
Full of might and majesty.
He the raging floods restrains :
He a King for ever reigns.
God His people shall increase,
Arm with strength, and bless with peace.


N. V.


1. 4, 5.
I'll celebrate Thy praises, Lord,

Who didst Thy power employ
To raise my drooping head, and check

My foes' insulting joy.

Thus to His courts, ye saints of His,

With songs of praise repair ;
With me commemorate His truth,

And providential care.
His wrath has but a moment's reign,

His favour no decay;
Your night of grief is recompensed
With joy's returning day.

N. V.
1. 6, 7, 8, 9.

C.M. LET all the just to God with joy

Their cheerful voices raise,
For well the righteous it becomes

To sing glad songs of praise.
By His Almighty word at first

The heavenly arch was rear’d,
And all the beauteous hosts of light

At His command appear’d.
The swelling floods, together roll'd,

He makes in heaps to lie;
And lays, as in a storehouse, safe,

The wat’ry treasures by.
Let earth, and all that dwell therein,

Before Him trembling stand;
For when He spake the

word 'twas made, 'Twas fix'd at His command.

N. V.




12. 20, 21, 22. How happy are the folk, to whom

The Lord for God is known; Whom He from all the world besides

Has chosen for His own.

Our soul on God with patience waits,

Our help and shield is He;
Then, Lord, let still our hearts rejoice,

Because we trust in Thee.
The riches of Thy mercy, Lord,

Do Thou to us extend;
Since we for all we want or wish

On Thee alone depend.


N. V. .12. 1, 2, 3. 8.

THROUGH all the changing scenes of life,

In trouble and in joy,
The praises of my God shall still

My heart and tongue employ.
Of His deliv’rance I will boast,

Till all that are distress'd
From my example comfort take,

And charm their griefs to rest.
O magnify the Lord with me,

With me exalt His Name;
When in distress to Him I callid,

He to my rescue came.
O make but trial of His love,

Experience will decide,
How bless'd are they, and only they,

Who in His truth confide.

N. V. 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.

THY justice, like the hills, remains;

Unfathom'd depths Thy judgments are ;
Thy providence the world sustains;

The whole creation is Thy care.
