Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail,
Robert GRANT, 1785-1838.
4. OD, my King, thy might confessing, Nor shall fail from memory's treasure Ever will I bless thy name;
Works by love and mercy wrought, Day by day thy throne addressing, Works of love surpassing measure, Still will I thy praise proclaim.
Works of mercy passing thought.
Honor great our God befitteth;
Who his majesty can reach?
Slow to anger, vast in love,
All his works his goodness prove.
3. They shall talk of all thy glory,
On thy might and greatness dwell, Speak of thy dread acts the story,
And thy deeds of wonder tell.
6. All thy works, O Lord, shall bless thee,
Thee shall all thy saints adore, King supreme shall they confess thee, And proclaim thy sovereign power.
RICHARD MANT, 1776-1848.
