Psalm 104

23
1 O WORSHIP the King, all glorious above,

O gratefully sing His power and His love ;
Our Shield and Defender, the Ancient of days,

Pavilioned in splendor and girded with praise.
2 O tell of His might, O sing of His grace,

Whose robe is the light, whose canopy space;
His chariots of wrath deep thunder-clouds form,

And dark is His path on the wings of the storm.
3 The earth, with its store of wonders untold,

Almighty, Thy power hath founded of old,
Hath stablished it fast by a changeless decree,

And round it hath cast, like a mantle, the sea.
4 Thy bountiful care what tongue can recite?

It breathes in the air, it shines in the light,
It streams from the hills, it descends to the plain,

And sweetly distils in the dew and the rain.
5 Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail,

In Thee do we trust, nor find Thee to fail :
Thy mercies how tender, how firm to the end,

Our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend!
6 O measureless Might, ineffable Love!

While angels delight to hymn Thee above,
The humbler creation, though feeble their lays,
With true adoration shall lisp to Thy praise.

The Lord's Prayer.
1 Our Father in heaven, we hallow Thy Name:

May Thy kingdom holy on earth be the same:
O give to us daily our portion of bread :

It is from Thy bounty that all must be fed.
2 Forgive our transgressions, and teach us to know

That humble compassion which pardons each foe;
Keep us from temptation, from evil and sin,
And Thine be the glory, forever! Amen!

3 Thousands, tens of thousands, stand, 6 Hallelujah! Lord, to Thee, Spirits blest, before the throne,

Father, Son, and Holy Ghost; Speeding thence at Thy command, Godhead One, and Persons Three;

And when Thy commands are done, Join with us the heavenly host, Singing everlastingly,

Singing everlastingly, To the Blessed Trinity.

To the Blessed Trinity.

2 Praise the Lord-for He hath spoken;

Worlds His mighty voice obeyed ; Laws which never shall be broken,

For their guidance He hath made. 3 Praise the Lord—for He is glorious ;

Never shall His promise fail ;
God hath made His saints victorious,

Sin and death shall not prevail. 4 Praise the God of our salvation ;

Hosts on high, His power proclaim ; Heaven and earth, and all creation,

Laud and magnify His Name!

I GLORY be to God the Father!

Glory be to God the Son!
Glory be to God the Spirit !
Great Jehovah, Three in One:

Glory, Glory,
While eternal ages run !
2 Glory be to Him who loved us,

Washed us from each spot and stain ; Glory be to Him who bought us, Made us kings with Him to reign:

Glory, Glory, To the Lamb that once was slain ! 3 Glory to the King of angels !

Glory to the Church's King!
Glory to the King of nations !
Heaven and earth your praises bring:

Glory, Glory,
To the King of glory bring!
4 Glory, blessing, praise eternal !

Thus the choir of angels sings;
Honor, riches, power, dominion !
Thus its praise creation brings :

Glory, Glory,
Glory to the King of kings !
8

Psalm 148. i Praise the Lord ! ye heavens, adore

Him;
Praise Him, angels in the height;
Sun and moon, rejoice before Him ;

Praise Him, all ye stars of light !

9
1 Blest be Thou, O God of Israel,

Thou, our Father, and our Lord ;
Blest Thy majesty forever,

Ever be Thy name adored ! 2 Thine, O Lord, are power and greatness;

Glory, victory, are Thine own;
All is Thine in earth and heaven;

Over all Thy boundless throne. 3 Riches come of Thee and honor ;

Power and might to Thee belong; Thine it is to make us prosper,

Only Thine to make us strong.
4 Lord, to Thee, Thou God of mercy,

Hymns of gratitude we raise;
To Thy name, forever glorious,

Ever we address our praise.

IO
1 The God of Abraham praise,

4 The whole triumphant host Who reigns enthroned above,

Give thanks to God on high ; Ancient of everlasting days,

“Hail! Father, Son, and Holy Ghost !* And God of Love !

They ever cry: Jehovah ! Great I AM !

Hail ! Abraham's God, and mine! By earth and heaven confest ;

I join the heavenly lays ;
I bow and bless the sacred Name, All might and majesty are Thine,
Forever blest !

And endless praise !
2 The God who reigns on high, 5 The God of Abraham praise,
The great archangels sing,

At whose

supreme command And, “Holy, Holy, Holy,” cry,

From earth I rise, and seek the joys “Almighty King!

At His right hand : Who was, and is, the same,

I all on earth forsake, And evermore shall be !"

Its wisdom, fame, and power; Jehovah ! Father ! Great I AM ! And Him my only portion make, We worship Thee !

My shield and tower. 3 Before the Saviour's face

6 He by Himself hath sworn; The ransomed nations bow,

I on His oath depend ; O'erwhelmed at His Almighty grace, I shall, on angel wings upborne, Forever new :

To heaven ascend : He shows His prints of love ;

I shall behold His face,
They kindle to a flame,

I shall His power adore,
And sound, through all the worlds above, And sing the wonders of His grace
The slaughtered Lamb !

For evermore.
