While the creation's utmost bound
Shall see, adore, and fear.
I Shine on our land, Jehovah, shine
With beams of heavenly grace; Reveal Thy power through all our
coasts, And show Thy smiling face. 2 Here fix Thy throne exalted high,
And here our Glory stand; And, like a wall of guardian fire,
Surround Thy favorite land. 3 When shall Thy name from shore to
shore Sound all the earth abroad ; And distant nations know and love
Their Saviour and their God! 4 Sing to the Lord, ye distant lands,
Sing loud with solemn voice ; Let thankful tongues exalt His praise,
And thankful hearts rejoice. 5 He, the great Lord, the sovereign
Judge, That sits enthroned above, Wisely commands the worlds He made,
In justice and in love. 6 Earth shall confess her Maker's hand,
And yield a full increase ; Our God will crown His chosen land
With fruitfulness and peace. 7 God, the Redeemer, scatters round
His choicest favors here;
For mercies from above :
With light and joy and love. 2 The gospel's promised land is wide,
We fain would enter in ;
With unbelief and sin.
Let us possess the whole ;
He can Thy work control.
Our Guide and Guardian be,
Till death shall set us free.
And on Thy word to rest,
Will grant us our request.
To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
One God, whom we adore, Be glory as it was, is now,
And shall be evermore.
2 Tremendous judgments from Thy hand I Once more the solemn season calls
Thy dreadful power display; A holy fast to keep;
Yet mercy spares this guilty land, And now within the temple walls
And still we liye to pray. Both priests and people weep. 3 O turn us, turn us, mighty Lord, 2 But vain all outward sign of grief,
By Thy resistless grace ; And vain the form of prayer,
Then shall our hearts obey Thy word, Unless the heart implore relief,
And humbly seek Thy face. And penitence be there.
940 3 We smite the breast, we weep in vain, In vain in ashes mourn,
I LORD, when we bend before Thy throne
And our confessions pour,
Teach us to feel the sins we own,
And hate what we deplore.
Our broken spirit pitying see; From us to turn His wrath away
True penitence impart; And stay the uplifted rod.
Then let a kindling glance from Thee
Beam hope upon the heart. 5 O God, our Judge and Father, deign
To spare the bruised reed; 3 When we disclose our wants in prayer, We pray for time to turn again,
May we our wills resign; For grace to turn indeed.
And not a thought our bosoms share, 6 Blest Three in One, to Thee we bow;
Which is not wholly Thine. Vouchsafe us, in Thy love,
4 May faith each weak petition fill, To gather from these fasts below
And waft it to the skies,
And teach our hearts 'tis goodness still 939
That grants it or denies.
All glory to the Son,
While endless ages run.
3 Now save us, Lord, from slavish fear; 1 On Thee, our Guardian God, we call,
Now let our hope be firm and strong, Before Thy throne of grace we fall ;
Till Thy salvation shall appear, And is there no deliverance there?
And joy and triumph raise the song. And must we perish in despair ?
943 2 See, we repent, we weep, we mourn, To our forsaken God we turn;
1 In prayer together let us fall, Oh spare our guilty country! spare
mercy, one and all, The church which Thou hast planted
And weep before the Judge, and say, here.
Oh, turn from us Thy wrath away! 3 We plead Thy grace, indulgent God, 2 Thy grace have we offended sore
We plead Thy Son's atoning blood, By sins, O God, which we deplore; We plead Thy gracious promises ; Pour down upon us from above And are they unavailing pleas?
The riches of Thy pardoning love. 4. These pleas, presented at Thy throne, Have brought ten thousand blessings 3 Remember, Lord, though frail we be, down
That yet Thine handiwork are we; On guilty lands in helpless woe:
Nor let the honor of Thy Name Let them prevail to save us too.
Be by another put to shame. 942
4 Forgive the sin that we have wrought,
Increase the good that we have sought ; i Now may the God of
That we at length, our wanderings o'er, Attend His people's humble cry!
May please Thee here and evermore. Jehovah hears when Israel prays,
And brings deliverance from on high. 5 Blest Three in One and One in Three, 2 In His salvation is our hope ;
Almighty God, we pray to Thee, And in the name of Israel's God That Thou wouldst now vouchsafe to Our troops shall lift their banners up,
bless Our navies spread their flags abroad.
Our fast with fruits of righteousness.
Raise the song of Harvest-home!
Raise the song of Harvest-home! 2 All the world is God's own field,
Fruit unto His praise to yield;
For the Lord our God shall come,
In His gainer evermore.
To Thy final Harvest-home!
From the copious founts on high,
From the rivers of the sky. 4 Thus the clouds Thy power confess,
And Thy paths drop fruitfulness,
Psalm 136. 1 PRAISE, oh praise our God and King,
Hymns of adoration sing ;
Praises to our God belong;
Praises to the heavenly King.
Flow around this happy land;
Peace and freedom we enjoy. 3 Here beneath a virtuous sway
May we cheerfully obey;
Ever own and worship God.
Praises to the King of kings;
And the grateful notes prolong. 946
Daily, O Jehovah, waits :
Grateful words and holy song.
Of remotest lands apart;
'Mid the ocean waste and lone. 3 Thou dost visit earth, and rain
Blessings on the thirsty plain,
