Great GOD of all, Holy Creator,

Father and LORD of heaven, earth, and sea,
Humbly we fall adoring before Thee;

Receive our prayers, our praises, Most High!
Infinite beauty, power, and skill,

Shine over all Thy glorious works.
Oh, who can count the stars that fill
The spacious firmament of heaven?
Great is Thy love, O LORD, to man;
Mercy and holy peace are Thine;
Grant us, then, grace with thankful voice
To praise Thy Name in songs of joy.
Great GOD of all, Holy Creator,

Receive our prayers and praises, Most High!

TE DEUM LAUDAMUS.

We worship, we confess Thee LORD,
Eternal Father, King adored.
All things on Earth with one accord
Exalt Thy mighty Name.

The Angel choirs their voices raise;
The Host of Heaven Thy power displays;
Thee Cherubim, with endless praise,
And Seraphim, proclaim.

"All Holy, Holy, Holy, Thou! "Thy glory Earth and Heaven avow: "LORD GOD of Hosts, to Thee we bow, "Our Maker, Life, and Light!" To Thee Thy great Apostles cry; Thee sainted Prophets magnify; With white-robed Martyrs' songs on high Doth Thy whole Church unite.

O CHRIST, the Father's only Son,
With Him, and GOD the Spirit, One,
Before Creation's work begun,

Thou, glorious King, dost reign:
Yet didst not Thou, Redeemer, scorn
To be of lowly Virgin born,

For those their fallen state that mourn,
Salvation to obtain.

For us Thou laid'st Thy power aside,
For us to conquer Death hast died,
For all who in Thy faith abide,

And Thee their Saviour own.

Now in GOD's might at His right hand, Thou sendest forth Thine high command; And lo! Heaven's portals open stand,

And crowds approach Thy Throne.

Yet once again, for Thou hast said,
Shall be revealed Thy Presence dread,
When Thou, the LORD of quick and dead,
For judgment shalt descend.

Then hear, LORD JESUS, hear our prayer;
Thy ransomed flock in mercy spare ;
Make us with all Thy saints to share
In glory without end.

O Prince and Saviour, still we pray,
Direct, exalt us in Thy way:
That Name we worship day by day,
May we in Heaven adore.

On us, LORD, let Thy mercy shine
This day, and ever keep us Thine:
In Thee we trust, our King divine,
And triumph evermore.

706

BEETHOVEN.

When I call upon Thee, O hear me, for Thy mercy's sake. Hear my voice, O LORD, and help me. Have mercy on us. O hear our prayer, O hear and spare us. Hide not Thou Thy face from us. O hear us.

707

BEETHOVEN.

Great is JEHOVAH the LORD. The heavens and the earth proclaim His power and His might. "'Tis heard in the crash of the storm, in the wild torrent's loud impetuous roar. Great is JEHOVAH the LORD; wondrous His power and might. At His command the trees put forth their opening leaves, and valleys wave bright with golden corn; with lovely flowers the fields are decked, and stars in splendour fill the vault of heaven. Heard with dread in the thunder's deep blast, and seen in flames of lightning. But chief in His great loving-kindness shines forth JEHOVAH'S boundless might. In His loving-kindness shines forth the boundless power of GOD. Raise your prayerful hearts on high, and hope for mercy, and trust in Him.

THE SONG OF MIRIAM.

No. I

Strike your timbrels, Hebrew maidens, Miriam bids upraise the lay;

Mighty is the LORD at all times, mightier hail we Him to-day.

No. 2

Out of Egypt, as a shepherd guards his flock, and shews

the way,

Thou hast led Thy chosen people, fire by night and cloud by day.

Shepherd, Thou hast led us onward, strong Thine arm, and keen Thine eye,

At Thy word the sea obedient parts, and leaves a pathway dry;

At Thy blast the floods congealing stand upright as crystal walls;

Through the sea's heart pass we dry-shod, trusting in Thy voice which calls.

No. 3

As we pass the sky grows darker, voices shout, "We will pursue!"

Armour gleaming, trumpets clanging, Pharaoh's host bursts on the view;

LORD of Hosts, this hour we perish, help us, LORD, our Rock, prove true.

Voices shout, still pressing onward, "We will pursue and overtake." But hark! What sighings! wailings! moanings! cursings! Hark! the storm! 'Tis the LORD in all His fury. Headlong rush the pent-up waves. Pharaoh's chariots! horse and rider! mighty waters overwhelm them. Fearfulness and dread upon them fall: by darkness and horror are they smitten: drown'd the captains and drown'd the host.
