BEFORE Jehovah's awful throne,
2 His sovereign power, without our aid,
Made Us of clay, and formed us men; And when like wandering sheep we strayed, He brought us to His fold again.
3 We are His people, we His care,
Our souls and all our mortal frame:
4 We'll crowd Thy gates with thankful songs,
High as the heavens our voices raise; And earth, with her ten thousand tongues, Shall fill Thy courts with sounding praise.
5 Wide as the world is Thy command;
Vast as eternity Thy love;
L.M. Hopkins. 15G2.
ALL people that on earth do dwell,
2 Know ye, the Lord is God indeed;
Without our aid He did us make;
3 0 enter, then, His gates with praise,
Approach with joy His courts unto;
4 For why? the Lord our God is good,
His mercy is for ever sure;
5 To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
The God whom heaven and earth adore,
(414) S.M. Watts. 1719.
COME, sound His praise abroad,
The universal King.
He formed the deeps unknown;
Come, worship at His throne;
To-day attend His voice,
10s & lis. C. Wesley. 1744
YE servants of God, your Master proclaim,
God ruleth on high, almighty to save;
3 'Salvation to God, who sits on the throne/— Let all cry aloud, and honour the Son!
Our Jesus's praises the angels proclaim,
Fall down on their faces, and worship the Lamb.
4 Then let us adore, and give Him His right,
5 O Jesus, lead on Thy militant care,
And give us the crown of righteousness there,—
1 <) 4-6s & 2-8s. C. Wesley. 1768.
YOUNG men and maidens, raise
2 The universal King
Let all the world proclaim;
His attributes and name!
3 In His great name alone
All excellencies meet,
And shall for ever sit:
4 Glory to God belongs;
Glory to God be given,
Of all in earth or heaven!
20 11-10. 11-10.^
PRAISE ye Jehovah! Praise the Lord most holy, [the weak;
Who cheers the contrite, girds with strength Praise Him who will with glory crown the lowly, And with salvation beautify the meek.
2 Praise ye the Lord, for all His lovingkindness,
And all the tender mercies He hath shown:
Praise Him who pardons all our sin and blindness
And calls us sons, and takes us for His own.
3 Praise ye Jehovah! Source of all our blessing,—
Before His gifts earth's richest boons are dim: Resting in Him, His peace and joy possessing, All things are ours, for we have all in Him.
4 Praise ye the Father! God the Lord, who gave us,
With full and perfect love, His only Son; Praise ye the Son, who died Himself to save us; Praise ye the Spirit! Praise the Three in One!

0COME, loud anthems let us sing,
2 Into His presence let us haste,
To thank Him for His favours past;
3 Por God, the Lord, enthroned in state,
The hills' great strength is in His hand,
4 0 let us to His courts repair,
5 For He's our God, our Shepherd He,
2/Z (26) C.M. Steele. 1760.
YE humble souls, approach your God,
2 All nature owns His guardian care,
In Him we live and move;
3 He gave His Son, His only Son,
To ransom rebel worms;
4 To this dear refuge, Lord, we come;
'Tis here our hope relies ;—
A safe defence, a peaceful home,
When storms of trouble rise.
5 Thine eye beholds, with kind regard,
The souls who trust in Thee;
6 Great God! to Thy almighty love
What honours shall we raise?
L.M. 6 lines, triplets. C. Wesley. 185-1.
"\TEi sons of men, lift up your voice,
In God rejoice, with one accord!
And shout and sins' to Christ the Lord.
