GOD AND HIS PERFEOTIONS.
HYMN 1. L. M. [#]
Being of God. 1 There is a God—all nature speaks,
Through earth, and air, and sea, and skies: See, from the clouds his glory breaks,
When first the beams of morning rise. 2 The rising sun, serenely bright,
O'er the wide world's extended frame Inscribes, in characters of light,
His mighty Maker's glorious name. 3 The flowery tribes, all blooming, rise
Above the weak attempts of art ; Their bright, inimitable dyes
Speak sweet conviction to the heart. 4 Ye curious minds, who roam abroad,
And trace creation's wonders o'er, Confess the footsteps of a God; Come, bow before him, and adore.
HYMN 2. 61. L. M. [#]
Perfection of God.
From everlasting still the same;
And veil their faces in a flame,
Such floods of glory from thee flow. 2 What mortal hand shall dare to paint
A semblance of thy glory, Lord ?
The brightest stars of heaven afford
Of light, that round Jehovah blaze. 3 The sun himself is but a gleam,
A transient meteor from thy throne;
That ever in creation shone,
In thy own vast immensity. 4 But though thy brightness may create
All worship from the hosts above,
Is, that thou art a God of love,
is the central sun
HYMN 3. C. M. [#]
Omnipresence of God. 1 THERE's not a place in earth’s vast round,
In ocean deep, or air,
For God is everywhere.
Wherever space extends, There Heaven displays its boundless love,
And power withi mercy blends. 3 Then rise, my soul, and sing his name,
And all his praise rehearse, Who spread abroad earth's wondrous frame,
And built the universe.
power and love declare ;
For God is everywhere.
HYMN 4. H. M. [#]
Great First Cause.
Who did all things create,
Unchangeable as fate,
With rapture we behold,
Below, or in the skies,
Wonders that can't be told :
To him all bend the knee;
The boundless Deity.
HYMN 5. L. P. M. [#]
God in Nature.
There thy rich works of wonder shine;
Of boundless power and skill divine. 2 From night to day, from day to night, The dawning and the dying light
Lectures of heavenly wisdom read;
And neither sound nor language need.
And every nation knows their voice; The sun, in robes of splendour dressed, Breaks from the chambers of the east,
Moves round, and makes the earth rejoice.
