Este's Psalter, 1592


2 Ten thousand, thousand precious gifts

My daily thanks employ;
Nor is the least a cheerful heart,

That tastes those gifts with joy. 3 Unnumbered comforts on my soul

Thy tender care bestowed, Before my infant heart conceived

From whom those comforts flowed. 4 Through every period of my life

Thy goodness I'll pursue;

And after death, in distant worlds,

The glorious theme renew. 5 When nature fails, and day and night

Divide Thy works no more, My ever grateful heart, O Lord,

Thy mercy shall adore. 6 Through all eternity to Thee

A joyful song I'll raise; But o, eternity's too short To utter all Thy praise!

J. Addison, 1712

all that dwell be - low the skies, Let the Crea-tor's praise a - rise;

Let the Redeemer's name be sung Through ev-ery land, by ev - ery tongue.

2 Eternal are Thy mercies, Lord,
Eternal truth attends Thy word;
Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore
Till suns shall rise and set no more.

4 Thou our only hope and guide,

Never leave us nor forsake: In Thy light may we abide

Till the endless morning break, Moving to Thy holy hill

Onward, upward, homeward still! 5 Lead us all our days and years

In Thy straight and narrow way; Lead us through this vale of tears'

To the land of perfect day, Where Thy people, fully blest, Near Thy throne forever rest.

C. K. von Rosenroth, 1684 E. J. Hopkins, 1818–1901

2 Praise ye the Lord for all His loving kindness,

And all the tender mercies He hath shown;
Praise Him who pardons all our sin and blindness,

And calls us sons, and takes us for His own.
3 Praise ye Jehovah, source of every blessing;

Before His gifts earth's richest boons are dim;
Resting in Him, His peace and joy possessing,

All things are ours, for we have all in Him.
4 Praise ye the Father, God the Lord who gave us,

With full and perfect love, His only Son;
Praise ye the Son who died Himself to save us;
Praise ye the Spirit, praise the Three in One!

M. Cockburn-Campbell, 1838

Our thanks and praise to Thee be given, Thou Lord of earth and Lord of heaven,

2 Pure in their nature, good, and true,

'Tis their delight Thy will to do; From heaven they come the souls to

That trust in Thy most holy word.
3 They joy when but one sinner turns;

Their zeal for Jesus ever burns;
They serve His people night and day,

And turn full many an ill away.
4 All little ones, awake, asleep,
And every child of Thine, they keep;
O'er all Thy kingdom, far and near,
They give their kind and loving care.

5 When death approaches, then they

come, To soften pain, and guide us home; And when the spirit leaves the clay,

To waft us to the realms of day.
6 Give us, O Lord, the grace and power

To serve Thee well each day and hour;
Grant us the zeal and fervent love

To serve as angels serve above.
7 Let these good spirits with us be,
When in Thy house we worship Thee;
And bid them all our path defend
Till this our life on earth shall end.
Latin, by Philip Melanchton, 1543

2 Taught by Thine unerring Spirit,

Boldly we draw nigh to God; Only in Thy spotless merit, Only through Thy precious blood:

By Thy mercy,

O deliver us, good Lord! 3 From the depth of nature's blindness,

From the hardening power of sin, From all malice and unkindness, From the pride that lurks within,

By Thy mercy,

O deliver us, good Lord! 4 When temptation sorely presses,

In the day of Satan's power,
In our times of deep distresses,
In each dark and trying hour,

By Thy mercy,
O deliver us, good Lord!

5 When the world around is smiling,

In the time of wealth and ease, Earthly joys our hearts beguiling, In the day of health and peace,

By Thy mercy,

() deliver us, good Lord! 6 In the weary hours of sickness,

In the times of grief and pain, When we feel our mortal weakness, When all human help is vain:

By Thy mercy,

O deliver us, good Lord! 7 In the solemn hour of dying,

In the awful judgment day,
May our souls, on Thee relying,
Find Thee still our rock and stay:

By Thy mercy,
(deliver us, good Lord!

John James Cummins, 1839

2 O Holy Ghost, our guide

To heavenly glory,
In all our hearts abide,

Lord, we implore Thee;
In us, blest Spirit, reign,

Thine aid bestowing; 1:Our souls with peace sustain,:||

Peace still o'erflowing.

3 Lift we our hearts on high

In adoration;
Our Lord is ever nigh

With consolation.
Let every grief be still;

Light He will send us;
T: In life, in death, He will: 1
Always defend us.
