Page 52 - A thousand ages in Thy sight Are like an evening gone, Short as the watch that ends the night Before the rising sun.
Page 9 - BEFORE Jehovah's awful throne, Ye nations bow with sacred joy : Know that the Lord is God alone ; He can create, and he destroy. 2 His sovereign power, without our aid, Made us of clay, and formed us men ; And when, like wandering sheep, we strayed, He brought us to his fold again. 3...
Page 140 - VITAL spark of heavenly flame ! Quit, oh quit this mortal frame ! Trembling, hoping, lingering, flying; Oh the pain, the bliss of dying! Cease,- fond nature ! cease thy strife, And let me languish into life. Hark ! they whisper ; angels say, Sister Spirit, come away.
Page 55 - O, make but trial of His love, Experience will decide How blest are they, and only they, Who in His truth confide.
Page 166 - I'LL praise my Maker with my breath ; And when my voice is lost in death, Praise shall employ my nobler powers : My days of praise shall ne'er be past, While life, and thought, and being last, Or immortality endures.
Page 76 - Thanksgiving. 1 ETERNAL Source of every joy ! Well may thy praise our lips employ, While in thy temple we appear, Whose goodness crowns the circling year.
Page 66 - The Lord my pasture shall prepare, And feed me with a shepherd's care; His presence shall my wants supply, And guard me with a watchful eye ; My noonday walks he shall attend, And all my midnight hours defend.
Page 197 - For the Lord is a great God; and a great King above all gods. In his hand are all the corners of the earth ; and the strength of the hills is his also.
Page 166 - Happy the man whose hopes rely On Israel's God : He made the sky, And earth, and seas, with all their train; His truth forever stands secure ; He saves the oppressed, He feeds the poor, And none shall find His promise vain.
