1 THINE, LORD, is wisdom, thine alone!
Justice and truth before Thee stand; Yet nearer to Thy sacred throne
Mercy withholds Thy lifted hand. 2 Each ev'ning shows Thy tender love,
Each rising morn Thy plenteous grace; Thy wakend terrors slowly move,
Thy willing mercy flies apace. . 3 To Thy benign indulgent care,
FATHER, this light, this breath we owe; And all we have, and all we are,
From Thee, great Source of being, flow. 4 While those, at length, who scorn Thy might,"
Shall feel Thee a consuming fire;
Of those, who to Thy love aspire!
Wisdom of God.
Tumultuous passions, all be still;
His ways are just, His counsels wise. 2 He in the thickest darkness dwells,
Performs His work, the cause conceals;
3 In heav'n, and earth, and, air, and seas,
He executes His firm decrees;
That what He does is ever best.
Prostrate before His awful seat;
Power of God.
1 ENTHRON'D on high th’ALMIGHTY reigns
Witb sov'reign, universal sway;
And none His powerful hand can stay. 2 The thunder of His glorious power
What mortal mind can understand ?
Hell trembles at His dread command. 3 Armies are nothing with the LORD,
Dispers'd like chaff before the wind;
Vanish, and leave no trace behind.
His pow'r engag'd my soul to save : The hand that keeps me is divine,
And will redeem me from the grave. 5 Come, sinner, bow before His throne;
With contrite heart, draw nigh to GOD; “ Be wise" in time, and “kiss the Son,"
Lest thou be crush'd beneath His rod.
Faithfulness of God.
1 BEGIN, my tongue, some heav'nly theme,
And speak some boundless thing;
Of our eternal King.
2 Tell of His wondrous faithfulness,
And sound His pow'r abroad;
And the performing God.
3 Proclaim salvation from the LORD
For wretched dying men ;
With an immortal pen.
4 Engrav'd as in eternal brass
The mighty promise shines,
Those everlasting lines.
5 His very Word of
is strong As that which built the skies : The voice that rolls the stars along
Speaks all the promises.
6 O might I hear Thy heav'nly tongue
But whisper, Thou art Mine !
To notes almost divine.
Faithfulness of God. 1 How oft have sin and Satan strove
To rend my soul from Thee, my God! But everlasting is Thy love,
And JESUS seals it with His blood. 2 The oath and promise of the LORD
Join to confirm the wondrous grace;
And fills all Heav'n with endless praise. 3 Amidst temptations sharp and long
My soul to this dear refuge flies :
While tempests blow, and billows rise. 4 The Gospel bears my spirit up;
A faithful and unchanging God
Dirine Attributes in general. 1
The Lord Jehovah reigns,
His throne is built on high ;
Are light and majesty :
No mortal eye can bear the sight. 2 The thunders of His hand
Keep the wide world in awe ;
To guard His holy law:
Through all His ancient works
Surprising wisdom shines,
And breaks their dark designs :
His great decrees, His sov'reign will. 4 And can this mighty King
Of glory condescend?
My Father and my Friend?
Trinity (us in the Litany.] i FATHER of Heav'n! whose love profound
A ransom for our souls has found,
To us Thy pard’ning love extend. 2 Almighty Son! Incarnate Word!
Our Propbet-Priest --Redeemer- LORD! Before Thy throne we sinners bend;
To us Thy saving grace extend.
The soul is rais'd from sin and death,
To us Thy quick’ning pow'r extend.
Mysterious Godhead! Three in One!
