5 By hills and mountains, all
In grateful concert join'd;
By every beast,
His name be blest. 6 Let all of highest birth,
With those of humbler name,
In this design,
With children, join. 7 United zeal be shown
His wondrous fame to raise,
Earth's utmost ends
The sky transcends. 8 His chosen saints to grace,
He sets them up on high;
O therefore raise
The LORD to praise !
PSALM 123. IV. 1.
From the cxlix. Psalm of David.
Prepare your glad voice
Assembly to sing :
Let Israel rejoice;
Be glad in their King.
Extol in their songs,
His praises express ;
To hear their glad tongues,
The humble to bless.
3 With glory adorn'd,
His people shall sing
With safety doth shield;
His favor shall bring:
From the cl. Psalm of David.
From whence his goodness largely flows; Praise him in heaven, where he his face,
Unveil'd, in perfect glory shows. 2 Praise him for all the mighty acts
Which he in our behalf has done; His kindness this return exacts,
With which our praise should equal run. 3 Let the shrill trumpet's warlike voice
Make rocks and hills his praise rebound: Praise him with harp's melodious noise
And gentle psalt’ry's silver sound.
To cymbals set their songs of praise;
That loudly sound on solemn days. 5 Let all, that vital breath enjoy,
The breath he does to them afford In just returns of praise employ:
Let every creature praise the LORD!

All worship be address'd;
It was, is now,
11. 5. TO God the Father, and to God the SON, To God the HOLY SPIRIT, Three in One, Be praise from all on earth and all in heaven, As was, and is, and ever shall be given.

Eternal Three in One.
Supreme o’er earth and heaven,
Be highest glory given,
To God the FATHER, God the Son
Ere time had yet its course begun :

And Spirit, thrice holy and bless'd,
Was, is, and shall still be address’d.
