3 Surrounded by thy power I stand,
On every side I find thy hand:
Too dazzling bright for mortal eye!
What hiding-place does earth afford? V L
Or whither from thy presence run?
'T is there thou dwell'st enthroned in light;
I still should find thy guiding hand.
Beneath the sable wings of night,
Would kindle darkness into day.
No screen from thy all-searching eyes;
As in the blazing noon of day.
A work of such a wondrous frame.
That since this maze of life I trod,
The power of numbers to recount.
The sands upon the ocean's shore;
I find th' account but new begun.
If mischief lurk in any part;
PSALM 114. C. M.
From the cxlı Psalm of David.
As ev'ning sacrifice.
And let a constant guard
My heart and hands restrain ;
Or their unrighteous gain.
And I shall think them kind;
From the cxliii. Psalm of David.
Thy wonted audience lend;
A gracious answer send.
Thy servant to be tried;
Can e'er be justified.
I fervently stretch out;
Like land oppress’d with drought.
Thy face no longer hide,
That in the grave reside.
Whose trust on thee depends;
My soul to thee ascends.
6 Do thou, O LORD, from all my foes,
Preserve and set me free;
My soul implores from thee.
Instruct me to obey;
My soul in thy right way.
Revive my drooping heart;
Thy saving health impart.
PSALM 116. L. M.
From the cxliv. Psalm of David.
Of him such tender care to take ?
Such great account of him to make?
2 The life of man does quickly fade,
His thoughts but empty are and vain,
Of whose short stay no signs remain.
In new-made hymns my voice I'll raise; I. And instruments of many strings
Shall help me to adore and praise.
From the cxlv. Psalm of David. 1:2125
1 THEE I will bless, my God and King,
Thy endless praise proclaim;
And ever bless thy Name.
And highly to be praised;
Above our knowledge raised.
3 Renown'd for mighty acts, thy fame
To future time extends ;
And wondrous works express,
And thy great power confess.
They shall with joy proclaim;
Shall be the constant theme.
His pity still supplies ;
His willing mercy flies.
To all thy works express'd;
Is by thy servants bless'd.
Shall of thy kingdom speak;
Their lofty subject make.
Shall thus to all be known;
In all its splendor shown.
Shall stand for ever fast;
PART II. C. M.
And makes the prostrate rise;
Who timely food supplies
With open hand he gives ;
Of every thing that lives.
3 How holy is the LORD, how just,
How righteous all his ways!
For his assistance prays !
Who him with fear adore;
When they his aid implore.
Whom grateful love employs;
In justice he destroys.
Shall still advance his fame;
For ever bless his Name.
PSALM 118. III. 3.
From the cxlv. Psalm of David.
Ever will I bless thy Name;
Age to age his power shall teach.
On thy might and greatness dwell
Works by love and mercy wrought;
Works of mercy passing thought. 41 92 w 5 Full of kindness and compassion,
Slow to anger, vast in love,
All his works his goodness prove.
