Thanks be to God, the Lord
That day of wrath, that dreadful day
That man is blest who stands in awe
That man is blest who stands in awe..
The Almighty reigns exalted high
The billows swell; the winds are high
The darkened sky, how thick it lowers
The day approacheth, O my soul
The day of wrath, that dreadful day.
The earth and all the heavenly frame..
The earth forever is the Lord's

The ever-living God
The evils that beset our path.
Thee we adore, eternal Name
The glories of my Maker, God
The glories of our birth and state
The God who reigns alone....
The heavenly spheres to thee, O God
The heaven of heavens cannot contain.
The heavens declare thy glory, Lord..
The heavens declare thy glory, Lord..
The heavens invite mine eye..
The hour of my departure's come..
The lands that long in darkness lay.

The law by Moses came

The Lord declares his will

The Lord descended from above.
The Lord himself, the mighty Lord
The Lord, how absolute he reigns..
The Lord, how tender is his love
The Lord in Zion placed his name
The Lord Jehovah reigns
The Lord Jehovah reigns
The Lord my pasture shall prepare.
The Lord my Shepherd is
The Lord of glory is my light
The Lord our God is full of might
The Lord receives his highest praise
The Lord will come; the earth shall quake

The Lord will happiness divine

The man in life wherever placed..
The man is blest that hath not bent.

The morning flowers display their sweets.
The offerings to thy throne which rise.
The promises I sing

The race that long in darkness pined
There is a book, who runs may read
There is a glorious world on high..
There is a God, all nature speaks..


















































There is a house, not made with hands...
There is a land of pure delight....

There's nothing round these painted skies
The righteous Lord, supremely great..
The Savior comes; no outward pomp
The Savior! what a noble flame...
These glorious minds, how bright they shine
These mortal joys, how soon they fade..
The solemn season calls us now..
The spacious firmament on high
The Spirit breathes upon the word
The swift declining day

The true Messiah now appears..
The uplifted eye and bended knee
Thine influence, mighty God, is felt.
Think, mighty God, on feeble man.
This is the day the Lord hath made.
This spacious earth is all the Lord's.
Thou art gone to the grave, but we will not deplore thee
Thou art the first, and thou the last...
Thou, Lord, by mortal eyes unseen..
Thou, Lord, through every changing scene
Thrice happy souls, who, born from heaven.
Through all the changing scenes of life..
Through every age, eternal God....
Through sorrow's night, and danger's path.
Thus far the Lord has led me on.

Thus saith the first, the great command..
Thus saith the high and lofty One.

Thus saith the Lord, The spacious fields.
Thy favors, Lord, surprise our souls..
Thy name, Almighty Lord..
Thy presence, everlasting God
Tired with the burdens of the day.
"Tis by the faith of joys to come......
'Tis by thy strength the mountains stand


'Tis enough; the hour is come
"Tis finished!" so the Savior cried
'Tis gone! that bright and orbed blaze
Tis my happiness below...
To all thy faithful people, Lord.
To bless thy chosen race..

To God, the mighty Lord..
To God, the only wise....
To heaven I lift my waiting eyes
Toiling through the livelong night.
To keep the lamp alive
To-morrow, Lord, is thine....
To our Almighty Maker, God..



















































To prayer, to prayer, for the morning breaks
To thee, my God, my days are known..
To thee, O God, we homage pay.
Triumphant Zion, lift thy head

Turn to the stars of heaven thine eyes.
'Twas by an order from the Lord
'Twas on that night, when doomed to know


[merged small][merged small][merged small][ocr errors]

We praise thee, God; thee we confess.
What if death my sleep invade
What is our God, or what his name
What seraph of celestial birth.....
What sinners value I resign...
What though downy slumbers flee..
What thousands never knew the road
What various hindrances we meet
What works of wisdom, power, and love
When all thy mercies, O my God..
When, as returns this solemn day
When, at this distance, Lord, we trace
When by the flowing brooks we sat...
When darkness long has veiled my mind.
When fancy spreads her boldest wings
When God is nigh, my faith is strong..
When God of old came down from heaven.
When God, provoked with daring crimes.
When God revealed his gracious name..
When Hagar found the bottle spent..
When I can read my title clear..
When Israel, of the Lord beloved...
When I survey the wondrous cross.
When I with pleasing wonder stand.
When Jordan hushed his waters still.

When o'er the billow-heaving deep...
When overwhelmed with grief....
When power divine in mortal form.
When rising from the bed of death..
When the last trumpet's awful voice..
When we devote our youth to God..
Wherefore should man, frail child of clay
Wherewith shall I approach the Lord..
While shepherds watched their flocks by night.
While some in folly's pleasures roll..
While sounds of war are heard around.
While thee I seek, protecting Power.
While with ceaseless course the sun.
Who has believed thy word...
Who shall inhabit in thy hill..
Why did the Gentiles rage.
Why do we mourn departing friends
Why should I fear in evil days...
With glory clad, with strength arrayed.
With God my Friend, the radiant sun.
With one consent let all the earth...
With pity, Lord, thy servant view.
With reverence let the saints appear.
With sacred joy we lift our eyes..
With songs and honors sounding loud.
With warm affection let us view...
Would you behold the works of God.

Ye boundless realms of joy....
Ye followers of the Prince of Peace.
Ye golden lamps of heaven, farewell..
Ye holy souls, in God rejoice
Ye nations round the earth, rejoice.
Ye servants of the Almighty King.

Ye servants of the Lord...

Ye servants of the Lord..

Ye sons of men, a feeble race.

Yes, the Redeemer rose..

Ye subjects of the Lord, proclaim
Ye tribes of Adam, join....
Ye weak inhabitants of clay..
Your thanks unto the Lord express.

Zeal is that pure and heavenly flame.
Zion, rejoice, and, Judah, sing...
