4 Thy hand in autumn richly pours
Through all our coasts redundant stores;
No more the face of horror wear.
Demand successive songs of praise;
With morning light and ev'ning shade. 6 Here in thy house let incense rise,
And circling sabbaths bless our eyes,
(IL 3.) Psalm xxiii. I THE Lord my pasture shall prepare,
And feed me with a shepherd's care;
And all my midnight hours defend. 2 When in the sultry glebe I faint,
Or on the thirsty mountain pant,
Amid the verdant landscape flow.
With gloomy horrors overspread;
(C. M) 1 WHEN all thy mercies, O my God,
My rising soul surveys,
In wonder, love, and praise!
The gratitude declare,
But thou canst read it there.
And all my wants redrest,
And hung upon the breast.
4 To all my weak complaints and cries
Thy mercy lent an ear,
To form themselves in prayer. 5 Unnumber'd comforts to my soul
Thy tender care bestow'd,
From whom those comforts flow'd. 6 When in the slipp’ry paths of youth
With heedless steps I ran,
And led me up to man.
It gently clear'd my way,
More to be fear'd than they.
With health renew'd my face;
Reviv'd my soul with grace.
Has made my cup run o'er;
Has doubled all my store.
My daily thanks employ;
That tastes those gifts with joy. 11 Through every period of my life
Thy goodness I'll pursue;
The glorious theme renew.
Divide thy works no more,
Thy mercy shall adore.
A joyful song I'll raise;

All our times are in thy hand,
All events at thy command.
He shall guide us to the tomb;
Order'd by his wise decree.
Blighting want, and cheerful wealth,
Come, and end, as God ordains. 4 May we always own thy hand,
Still to thee surrender'd stand,
His wonders to perform;
And rides upon the storm.
With never failing skill,
And works his gracious will.
The clouds ye so much dread
In blessings on your head.
But trust him for his grace: Behind a frowning providence
He hides a smiling face.
Unfolding every hour:
But sweet will be the flow'r. 6 Blind unbelief is sure to err,
And scan his work in vain : God is his own interpreter,
And he will make it plain.

Be just before his God;
