To God the only wise,

Our Saviour and our King, Let all the saints below the skies Their humble praises bring.

2 'Tis his almighty love, His counsel and his care,

579.* T. 155.

THOU, my Light, my Leading-star, Who hast kindly me directed,

And protected;

When thy mercies, daily new, I review,

In the dust I fall before thee, Lost in wonder I adore thee,

Preserves us safe from sin and death, They are great, yea numberless.

And ev'ry hurtful snare.

3 He will present our souls
Unblemish'd and complete,
Before the glory of his face,
With joys divinely great.
4 Once all the chosen race

Shall meet around the throne,
Shall praise him for his saving grace,
And make his wonders known.
5 To our Redeemer-God,
Wisdom and pow'r belongs,
Immortal crowns of majesty,
And everlasting songs.

T. 83. Now with joyful songs appear, And with humble adoration, 'Fore the Lord, he's always near To his ransom'd congregation. With the poor he deigns to dwell: He is nam'd Immanuel.

WHEN all thy mercies, Lord, to mind we call,

Astonish'd at thy feet we humbly fall. Grant us still in future, thy kind direction,

Till in us all the aim of thy election Be quite obtain'd.

· 580. T. 249.
IN humble, grateful lays,
The Lord :||: of hosts we praise,
His saving name confess;
Yea, fill'd with holy awe, revere
The Father, Son and Comforter.
Amen, Hallelujah!

Amen, Hallelujah!

His love :: we will proclaim,
Who dy'd, us to redeem;
Let ev'ry being that hath breath,
Extol his meritorious death.
From angels and from men,
To the Lamb slain
All honour doth pertain.

Thy will be mine indeed;
O may I labor constantly
Endow'd with spirit's poverty,

From ev'ry hurtful influence freed.

A share in others' welfare take,
The schemes and plots of Satan break,
Fast bound unto thy church and thee.

A readiness O may I show
To execute thy will;
When I enjoy the highest good,
Partaking of thy flesh and blood,

In all essentials firm and true;

Give me a trusty ear;

A constant, genuine brother's heart,
To sympathize with ev'ry smart,

And gladly others' burdens bear. 7 In converse make me tractable And mild, in storms invincible,

And never prone to yield;
May I maintain incessantly
A tender fellowship with thee,
From day to day by grace upheld.

And tread the pilgrim's rugged way,

Offer fervent supplication,
Whether to rejoice, or weep,
We may now have most occasion;
When the lips no more can pray,

Sighs will find to him their way.

With incense for her pray'r;
Grant to us all a cheerful heart;.

Defended from all noxious air.

Which may thy voice distinctly hear,
An eye to view thee still;
And feet earth's rugged craggy ways
And priestly lips to tell thy praise,
To traverse, without fearing ill

Our bodies temples be to thee,

Grant us, thy still small voice to hear,
A breeze divine our spirits cheer,
Unknown, save to thy flock of grace.
