2 But more amazing than the bloom

Which all the tree bestuds,
See, peering from the leafy gloom,

A hundred thousand buds.
3 Oh, bud for ever, glorious tree,

Oh, ever blossom thus;
So shall thy good fruits plenteously

Hang ripening for us.

C. M. Bedford— Tottenham-Ashley. 1 The heavens are telling high and wide

The glory of the Lord,
The firmament and deeps of air

His handiwork record.
2 Day speaks to day-a gushing fount

Of praise that cannot fail :
Day unto day, and night to night,

Tells out the wondrous tale.
3 No sound, no converse; all unheard

The solemn voice they send;
Their line goes out o’er all the earth,

Their words to the world's end.
4 In them the Lord made for the sun

A tent and home on high,
Who like a bridegroom quits his bower

To tread the morning sky;


5 Like champion glad to run his course,

Comes forth from heaven's far side, And o'er heaven's bound his circuit takes :

Nought from his heat may hide. 6 God's law is perfect and entire,

To win the wandering mind;
God's witness is for ever sure,

To teach the simple kind. 7 God's rules are even, clear, and straight,

Rejoicing all the heart;
And God's command is pure; and light

O’er eye and soul will dart.
8 O cleanse me from my secret faults;

Mine only Lord thou art;
Withdraw me from the haughty world,

That would enthral my heart. 9 So, stainless in my Maker's sight,

And whole, may I appear;
From all my deep and deadly sin,

For ever washed and clear:

10 So may the musings of my heart,

And every breathed word,
Accepted, rise to thee, my Rock,

And my redeeming Lord.

To Him that forms our hearts anew

Are endless praise and glory due. 2 The Father's love shall run

Through our immortal songs;
We bring to God the Son

Hosannas on our tongues ;
Our lips address the Spirit's name

With equal praise, and zeal the same. 3 Let every saint above,

And angel round the throne,
For ever bless and love

The sacred three in One;
Thus heaven shall raise his honours higt
When earth and time grow old and die

1 Praise O praise the name divine!

Praise it at the hallowed shrine;
Let the firmament on high

To its Maker's praise reply.
? Be the harp no longer mute;

Sound the trumpet, touch the lute,
Wake to life each tuneful string,
Bring the pipe, the timbrel bring.
All who vital breath enjoy,
In his praise that breath employ;
And in one great chorus join-
Praise, O praise the name divine!

3 Sing, till we feel our hearts

Ascending with our tongues ;
Sing, till the love of sin departs,

And grace inspires our songs. 4 Sing on your heavenly way,

Ye ransomed sinners, sing !
Sing on, rejoicing every day,

In Christ th' exalted King. 5 Soon shall we hear him say,

“ Ye blessed children, come;" Soon will he call us hence away,

And take his wanderers home. 6 Soon shall our raptured tongue

His endless praise proclaim,
And sweeter voices tune the song

Of Moses and the Lamb. 154.


Lubeck Alcester-Battishill. 1 Now begin the heavenly theme:

Sing aloud the Saviour's name!
Ye who Jesus' kindness prove,

Sing of his redeeming love.
2 Ye who see the Father's grace

Beaming in the Saviour's face,
As to Canaan on ye move,
Praise and bless redeeming love.
