O Worship the King

Author: Robert Grant Meter: Appears in 996 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 104 First Line: O worship the King all glorious above Lyrics: 1 O worship the King all-glorious above, O gratefully sing his power and his love: our shield and defender, the Ancient of Days, pavilioned in splendor and girded with praise. 2 O tell of his might and sing of his grace, whose robe is the light, whose canopy space. His chariots of wrath the deep thunderclouds form, and dark is his path on the wings of the storm. 3 Your bountiful care, what tongue can recite? It breathes in the air, it shines in the light; it streams from the hills, it descends to the plain, and sweetly distills in the dew and the rain. 4 Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail, in you do we trust, nor find you to fail. Your mercies, how tender, how firm to the end, our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend! 5 O measureless Might, unchangeable Love, whom angels delight to worship above! Your ransomed creation, with glory ablaze, in true adoration shall sing to your praise!

Psalm 104

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 80 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 104 First Line: My soul, thy great Creator praise: Lyrics: My soul, thy great Creator praise: When clothed in his celestial rays, He in full majesty appears, And, like a robe, his glory wears. The heav'ns are for his curtains spread, The unfathomed deep he makes his bed. Clouds are his chariot when he flies On winged storms across the skies. Angels, whom his own breath inspires, His ministers, are flaming fires; And swift as thought their armies move To bear his vengeance or his love. The world's foundations by his hand Are poised, and shall for ever stand; He binds the ocean in his chain, Lest it should drown the earth again. When earth was covered with the flood, Which high above the mountains stood, He thundered, and the ocean fled, Confined to its appointed bed. The swelling billows know their bound, And in their channels walk their round; Yet thence conveyed by secret veins, They spring on hills and drench the plains. He bids the crystal fountains flow, And cheer the valleys as they go; Tame heifers there their thirst allay, And for the stream wild asses bray. From pleasant trees which shade the brink, The lark and linnet light to drink Their songs the lark and linnet raise, And chide our silence in his praise. God from his cloudy cistern pours On the parched earth enriching showers; The grove, the garden, and the field, A thousand joyful blessings yield. He makes the grassy food arise, And gives the cattle large supplies With herbs for man of various power, To nourish nature or to dire. What noble fruit the vines produce! The olive yields a shining juice; Our hearts are cheered with gen'rous wine, With inward joy our faces shine. O bless his name, ye Britons, fed With nature's chief supporter, bread; While bread your vital strength imparts, Serve him with vigor in your hearts. Behold, the stately cedar stands, Raised in the forest by his hands; Birds to the boughs for shelter fly, And build their nests secure on high. To craggy hills ascends the goat, And at the airy mountain's foot The feebler creatures make their cell; He gives them wisdom where to dwell. He sets the sun his circling race, Appoints the moon to change her face; And when thick darkness veils the day, Calls out wild beasts to hunt their prey. Fierce lions lead their young abroad, And, roaring, ask their meat from God; But when the morning beams arise, The savage beast to covert flies. Then man to daily labor goes; The night was made for his repose; Sleep is thy gift, that sweet relief From tiresome toil and wasting grief. How strange thy works! how great thy skill! And every land thy riches fill: Thy wisdom round the world we see; This spacious earth is full of thee. Nor less thy glories in the deep, Where fish in millions swim and creep With wondrous motions, swift or slow, Still wand'ring in the paths below. There ships divide their wat'ry way, And flocks of scaly monsters play; There dwells the huge leviathan, And foams and sports in spite of man. Vast are thy works, Almighty Lord; All nature rests upon thy word, And the whole race of creatures stands Waiting their portion from thy hands. While each receives his diff'rent food, Their cheerful looks pronounce it good: Eagles and bears, and whales and worms, Rejoice and praise in diff'rent forms. But when thy face is hid, they mourn, And, dying, to their dust return; Both man and beast their souls resign; Life, breath, and spirit, all is thine. Yet thou canst breathe on dust again, And fill the world with beasts and men; A word of thy creating breath Repairs the wastes of time and death. His works, the wonders of his might, Are honored with his own delight; How awful are his glorious ways! The Lord is dreadful in his praise. The earth stands trembling at thy stroke, And at thy touch the mountains smoke; Yet humble souls may see thy face, And tell their wants to sovereign grace. In thee my hopes and wishes meet, And make my meditations sweet; Thy praises shall my breath employ, Till it expire in endless joy. While haughty sinners die accursed, Their glory buried with their dust, I to my God, my heav'nly King, Immortal hallelujahs sing. Great is the Lord, what tongue can frame An equal honor to his name?

We sing the wisdom that ordained the sun to rule the day; the moon shines full at his command, and all the stars obey. 2 We sing the goodness of the Lord that filled the earth with food; he formed the creatures with his word and then pronounced them good. Lord, how your wonders are displayed, where'er we turn our eyes, if we survey the ground we tread or gaze upon the skies. 3 There's not a plant or flower below but makes your glories known, and clouds arise and tempests blow by order from your throne; while all that borrows life from you is ever in your care, and everywhere that we can be, you, God, are present there.

Bless God, my Soul,; Thou, Lord, alone

Appears in 29 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 104 Lyrics: 1 Bless God, my Soul; thou, Lord, alone Possessest Empire without Bounds, With Honour Thou art crown'd, thy Throne Eternal Majesty surrounds. 2 With Light Thou dost thyself enrobe, And Glory for a Garment take; Heaven's Curtains stretch, beyond the Globe, Thy Canopy of State to make. 3 God builds on liquid Air, and forms His Palace Chambers in the Skies; The Clouds his Chariots are, and Storms The swift-wing'd Steeds with which he flies. 4 As bright as Flame, as swift as Wind, His Ministers Heaven's Palace fill, To have their sundry Tasks assign'd All proud to serve their Sov'reign's Will. 5,6 Earth on her Centre fix'd He set, Her Face with Waters overspread; Nor proudest Mountains dar'd as yet, To lift above the Waves their Head. 7 But when thy awful Face appear'd, Th' insulting Waves dispers'd; they fled, When once thy Thunder's Voice they heard, And by their Haste confess'd their Dread. 8 Thence up by secret Tracks they creep, And gushing from the Mountain's Side, Thro' Vallies travel to the Deep, Appointed to receive their Tide. 9 There hast thou fix'd the Ocean's Bounds, The threatning Surges to repel; That they no more o'erpass their Mounds, Nor to a second Deluge swell. Part II 10 Yet thence in smaller Parties drawn, The Sea recovers her lost Hills; And starting Springs from ev'ry Lawn, Surprize the Vales with plenteous Rills. 11 The Fields tame Beasts are thither led, Weary with Labour, faint with Drought; And Asses on wild Mountains bred, Have Sense to find these Currents out. 12 There shady Trees from scorching Beams, Yield Shelter to the feather'd Throng; They drink, and to the bounteous Streams Return the Tribute of their Song. 13 His Rains from Heav'n parch'd hills recruit, That soon transmit the liquid Store; 'Till Earth is burthen'd with her Fruit, And Nature's Lap can hold no more. 14 Grass, for our Cattle to devour, He makes the Growth of ev'ry Field; Herbs, for Man's Use of various Pow'r, That either Food or Physick yield. 15 With cluster'd Grapes he crowns the vine, To chear Man's Heart opprest with Cares, Give Oil that makes his Face to shine; And Corn, that wasted Strength repairs. Part III 16 The Trees of God, without the Care Or Art of Man, with Sap are fed; The Mountain Cedar looks as fair, As those in royal Gardens bred. 17 Safe in the lofty Cedar's Arm's The Wand'rers of the Air may rest; The hospitable Pine from Harms Protects the Stork, her pious Guest. 18 Wild Goats the craggy Rock ascend, Its tow'ring Heights their Fortress make, Whose Cells in labyrinths extend, Where feebler Creatures Refuge take. 19 The Moon's inconstant Aspect shows Th' appointed Seasons of the Year; Th' instructed Sun his Duty knows, His Hours to rise and disappear. 20,21 Darkness He makes the Earth to shroud, When Forest-Beasts securely stray; Young Lions roar their Wants aloud To Providence, that sends them Prey. 22 They range all Night, on Slaughter bent, 'Till summon'd by the rising Morn, To skulk in Dens with one Consent, The conscious Ravagers return. 23 Forth to the Tillage of the Soil, The Husbandman securely goes, Commencing with the Sun his Toil, With him returns to his Repose. 24 How various, Lord, thy Works are found; For which thy Wisdom we adore! The Earth is with thy Treasure crown'd, 'Till Nature's Hand can grasp no more. Part IV 25 But still, the vast unfathom'd Main Of Wonders a new Scene supplies, Whose Depths Inhabitants contain, Of ev'ry Form and ev'ry Size. 26 Full-freighted Ships from ev'ry Port, There cut their unmolested Way; Leviathan, whom there to sport Thou mad'st, his Compass there to play. 27 These various Troops of Sea and Land, In Sense of common Want agree: All wait on thy dispensing Hand, And have their daily Alms from Thee. 28 They gather what thy Stores disperse, Without their Trouble to provide: Thou op'st thy Hand, the Universe, The craving World is all supply'd. 29 Thou for a Moment hid'st thy Face, The num'rous Ranks of Creatures mourn: Thou tak'st their Breath, all Nature's Race Forthwith to Mother-Earth return. 30 Again thou send'st thy Spirit forth, T'inspire the Mass with vital Seed; Nature's restor'd, and Parent-Earth Smiles on her new-created Breed. 31 Thus through successive Ages stands Firm fix'd thy providential Care; Pleas'd with the Work of thy own Hands, Thou dost the Wastes of Time repair. 32 One Look of thine, one wrathful Look, Earth's panting Breast with Terror fills; One Touch from Thee, with Clouds of Smoak, In Darkness shrouds the proudest Hills. 33 In praising God, while He prolongs My Breath, I will that Breath employ; 34 And join Devotion to my Songs Sincere, as in Him is my Joy: 35 While Sinners from Earth's Face are hurl'd, My Soul, praise thou his holy Name, 'Till with my Song, the list'ning world Join Consort, and his Praise proclaim.
