Divine Knowledge from Creation

Hymnal: The Hartford Selection of Hymns from the Most Approved Authors #XXVI (1799) Meter: 8.6.8.6 Topics: Creation Proves the being and perfections of God; Creation Proves the being and perfections of God First Line: The book of nature open lies Lyrics: 1 The book of nature open lies, With much instruction stor'd; But till the LORD anoints our eyes, We cannot read a word. 2 The knowledge of the saints excels The wisdom of the schools; To them his secrets God reveals, Tho' men account them fools. 3 To them the sun and stars on high, The flow'rs that paint the field, And all the artless birds that fly, Divine instruction yield. 4 The creatures on their senses press, As witnesses to prove Their Saviour's pow'r and faithfulness, His providence and love. 5 Thus may we study nature's book, To make us wise indeed! And pity those who only look At what they cannot read. Languages: English

Christ the Beloved described

Hymnal: The Christians Duty, exhibited, in a series of Hymns #LXXIV (1791) Topics: Being and Perfections of God First Line: Fair Salem's Daughters ask to know Lyrics: 1 Fair Salem's Daughters ask to know Why I should love my Jesus so; What are his Charms, say they, above The Objects of another's Love? 2 Yes, my Beloved, to my Sight Shews a sweet Mixture, Red and White; All human Beauties, all divine, In my Beloved meet and Shine. 3 White is his Soul, from Blemish free; Red was his Blood he shed for me; The Fairest of Ten Thousand Fairs; A Sun among ten Thousand stars. 4 His Head the finest Gold excels; There Wisdom in Perfection dwells, And Glory, like a Crown, adorns Those Temples once best with Thorns. 5 Compassions in his Heart are found, Hard by the signals of his Wound: His Sacred Side no more shall bear The cruel Scourge, the piercing Spear. 6 His Hands are fairer to behold Than Diamonds set in Rings of Gold; Those heav'nly Hands that on the Tree Where nail'd, and torn, and bled for me. 7 Tho' once he bow'd his feeble Knees, Loaded with Sins and Agonies, Now on the Throne of his Command, His Legs like Marble Pillars stand. 8 His Eyes are Majesty and Love, The Eagle temper'd with the Dove; No more shall trickling Sorrows roll, Thro' those dear Windows of his Soul. 9 His Mouth that pour'd out long Complaints, Now smiles, and cheers his fainting Saints; His Countenance more graceful is Than Lebanon with all its Trees. 10 All over Glorious is my Lord, Must be belov'd, and yet ador'd; His Worth if all the nations knew Sure ev'ry one would Love him too.

Strength from Heaven

Hymnal: The Christians Duty, exhibited, in a series of Hymns #CCCXXIX (1791) Topics: Being and Perfections of God First Line: Whence do our mournful Thoughts arise Lyrics: 1 Whence do our mournful Thoughts arise? And where's our Courage fled? Have restless Sin and raging Hell Struck all our Comforts dead? 2 Have we forgot the Almighty Name That form'd the Earth and Sea? And can an all-creating Arm Grow weary, or decay? 3 Treasures of everlasting Might In our Jehovah dwell; He gives the Conquest to the Weak And treads their Foes to Hell. 4 Mere mortal Power shall fade and die, And youthful Vigour cease: But we that wait upon the Lord, Shall feel our Strength increase. 5 The Saints shall mount on eagles Wings, And taste the promis'd Bliss, 'Till their unwearied Feet arrive Where perfect Pleasure is. Scripture: Isaiah 60:27-30

Eternal God, almighty cause

Hymnal: Hymns, Selected and Original #18 (1828) Meter: 8.8.8.8 Topics: Being and Perfections of God; Unity of God Lyrics: 1 Eternal God, almighty cause Of earth, and seas, and worlds unknown! All things are subject to thy laws; All things depend on thee alone. 2 Thy glorious being singly stands, Of all within itself possest; By none controll'd in thy commands, And in thyself completely blest. 3 To thee alone ourselves we owe; Let heav'n and earth due homage pay: All other gods we disavow, Deny their claims, renounce their sway. 4 In thee, O Lord, our hope shall rest, Fountain of peace and joy and love! Thy favour only makes us blest; Without thee all would nothing prove. 5 Worship to thee alone belongs, Worship to thee alone we give; Thine be our hearts, and thine our songs, And to thy glory we would live. 6 Spread thy great name through heathen lands; Their idol-deities dethrone; Subdue the world to thy commands, And reign as thou art, God alone.

Ye sons of men, in sacred lays

Hymnal: Hymns, Selected and Original #37 (1828) Meter: 8.8.8.8 Topics: Being and Perfections of God; The glory of God Lyrics: 1 Ye sons of men, in sacred lays, Attempt the great Creator's praise; But who an equal song can frame? What verse can reach the lofty theme? 2 He sits enthron'd amidst the spheres, And glory like a garment wears; While boundless wisdom, pow'r, and grace, Command our awe, transcend our praise. 3 Before his throne a shining band Of cherubs and of seraphs stand; Ethereal spirits, who in flgiht Outstrip the rapid speed of light. 4 To God all nature owes its birth, He form'd this pond'rous globe of earth, He raised the glorious arch on high, And measur'd out the azure sky. 5 In all our Maker's grand designs, Omnipotence with wisdom shines. His works, through all this wondrous frame, Bear the great impress of his name. 6 Rais'd on devotion's lofty wing, Let us his high perfections sing: O let his praise employ our tongue, Whilst list'ning worlds applaud the song!

God is a name my soul adores

Hymnal: Hymns, Selected and Original #17 (1828) Meter: 8.8.8.8 Topics: Being and Perfections of God; The Incomprehensibility of God Lyrics: 1 God is a name my soul adores, Th'Almighty Three, the Eternal One! Nature and grace, with all their powers Confess the Infinite unknown. 2 From thy great self thy being springs; Thou art thy own original, Made up of uncreated things, And self-sufficience bears them all. 3 Thy voice produced the seas and spheres, Bids the waves roar and planets shine; But nothing like thyself appears Through all these spacious works of thine. 4 Still restless nature dies and grows; From change to change the creatures run: Thy being no succession knows, And all thy vast designs are one. 5 How shall affrighted mortals dare To sing thy glory or thy grace? Beneath thy feet we lie so far, And see but shadows of thy face! 6 Who can behold this blazing light? Who can approach consuming flame? None but thy wisdom knows thy might, None but thy word can speak thy name.

God glorious, and Sinners saved

Hymnal: The Christians Duty, exhibited, in a series of Hymns #LXXV (1791) Topics: Being and Perfections of God First Line: Father, how wide thy Glory shines! Lyrics: 1 Father, how wide thy Glory shines! How high thy Wonders rise! Known thro' the Earth by Thousand Signs, By Thousand thro' the Skies. 2 Those mighty Orbs proclaim thy Pow'r, Their Motions speak thy Skill; And on the Wings of ev'ry Hour We read thy Patience still; 3 Part of thy Name divinely Stands On all thy Creatures writ, They shews the Labour of thy hands, The Impress of thy Feet. 4 But when we View thy grand Design To save rebellious Worms, Where Wisdom Pow'r and Goodness shine, In their most glorious Forms; 5 Our Thoughts are lost in rev'rend Awe; We Love, and we adore; Thy holy Angels never saw So much of GOD before. 6 Here GOD hath made his Nature known, And Thought can never trace, Which of his Glories brightest shone, In our Redeemer's Face. 7 O the sweet Myst'ries of that Cross Where Jesus lov'd and dy'd, Her noblest Life my Spirit draws From his dear wounded Side. 8 Now the full Glories of the LAMB Adorn the heav'nly Plains; Sweet Cherubs learn Immanuel's Name, And try their choicest Strains. 9 O may I bear some humble Part In that immortal Song! Wonder and Joy shall tune my Heart, And love command my Tongue. Languages: English

The Works of Moses and the Lamb

Hymnal: The Christians Duty, exhibited, in a series of Hymns #CXIV (1791) Topics: Being and Perfections of God First Line: How strong thine Arm is, mighty God! Lyrics: 1 How strong thine Arm is, mighty God! Who would not fear thy Name! Jesus, how sweet thy Graces are! Who would not love the Lamb? 2 He has done more than Moses did Our Prophet and our King; From Bonds of Hell he freed our Souls, And taught our Lips to sing. 3 In the Read-Sea, by Moses' Hand, Th' Egyptian Host was drown'd; But his own Blood hides all our Sins, And Guilt no more is found. 4 When thro' the Desert Israel went, With Manna they were fed: Our Lord invites us to his Flesh, And calls it Living Bread. 5 Moses beheld the promis'd Land, Yet never reached the Place; But Christ shall bring his Followers home, To see his Father's Face. 6 Then shall our Love and Joy be full, And feel a warmer Flame; And sweeter Voices tune the Song Of Moses and the Lamb. Scripture: Revelation 15:3 Languages: English
