Lord, when our raptur'd thought surveys

Hymnal: A Collection of Psalms and Hymns for Publick Worship #XXXI (1789) Topics: Blessings temporal and spiritual Thanks for Mercies, temporal and spiritual Lyrics: 1 Lord, when our raptur'd thought surveys Creation's beauties o'er, All nature joins to teach thy praise, And bid our souls adore. 2 The living tribes of countless forms, In earth, and sea, and air, The meanest flies, the smallest worms Almighty pow'r declare. 3 Thy wisdom, power, and goodness, Lord, In all thy works appear; And, O! let man thy praise record, Man, thy distinguish'd care! 4 From thee the breath of life he drew; That breath thy pow'r maintains; Thy tender mercy, ever new, His brittle frame sustains. 5 Yet nobler favors claim his praise; Of reason's light possess'd; By revelation's brightest rays, Still more divinely bless'd. 6 Thy providence, his constant guard, When threat'ning woes impend; Or will th' impending dangers ward, Or timely succours lend. 7 On us that providence has shone, With gentle, smiling rays: O, may our lips and lives make known Thy goodness and thy praise!

O praise the Lord, our heavenly King

Hymnal: A Collection of Psalms and Hymns for Publick Worship #XLIII (1789) Topics: Blessings temporal and spiritual Thanksgiving for the Fruits of the Earth Lyrics: 1 O praise the Lord, our heav'nly King, Who makes the earth his care; Visits the pastures ev'ry spring, And bids the grass appear. 2 The clouds, like rivers rais'd on high, Pour out, at his command, Their wat'ry blessings from the sky, To cheer the thirsty land. 3 The soften'd ridges of the field Permit the corn to spring; The vallies rich provision yield, And the glad labourers sing. 4 The little hills, on ev'ry side, Rejoice at falling show'rs; The meadows, dress'd in all their pride, Perfume the air with flow'rs. 5 The barren clods, refresh'd with rain, Promise a joyful crop; The parching grounds look green again, And raise the reaper's hope. 6 The various months thy goodness crowns; How bounteous are thy ways! The bleating flocks spread o'er the downs, And shepherds shout thy praise. 7 Thine is the cheerful day, and thine The still returns of night; Thou hast prepar'd the glorious sun And ev'ry feebler light. 8 By thee the borders of the earth In perfect order stand; The summer's warmth and winter's cold Attend on thy command.

The Lord is my shepherd, my guardian, and guide

Hymnal: A Collection of Psalms and Hymns for Publick Worship #XXXVII (1789) Topics: Blessings temporal and spiritual God our Shepherd Lyrics: 1 The Lord is my shepherd, my guardian, and guide; Whatsoever I want, he will kindly provide; To the sheep of his pasture his mercies abound, His care and protection his flock will surround; If e'er from his fold they should wander abroad, His care will recall them, and fix their abode, Where himself, in the midst, with a provident eye, Will regard all their wants, and provide a supply. 2 The Lord is my shepherd, what then shall I fear? What danger can frighten me while he is near? Not when the time calls me to walk thro' the vale Of the shadow of death, shall my heart ever fail; Tho' afraid, of myself, to pursue the dark way, Thy rod and thy staff be my comfort and stay; For I know, by thy guidance, when once it is past, To a fountain of life it will bring me at last. 3 The Lord is become my salvation and song, His blessings shall follow me all my life long; Whatsoever condition he places me in, I am sure 'tis the best it could ever have been; For the Lord he is good, and his mercies are sure; He only afflicts us, in order to cure; The Lord will I praise while I have any breath, Be content all my life, and resign'd in my death.

Ye humble souls, in God rejoice!

Your Maker's praise becomes your voice, Great is your theme, your songs be new: Sing of his name, his word, his ways, His works of nature and of grace, How wise and holy, just and true! 2 Justice and truth he ever loves, And the whole earth his goodness proves, His word the heavenly arches spread; How wide they shine from north to south! And by the spirit of his mouth Were all the starry armies made. 3 He gathers the wide flowing seas Those wat'ry treasures know their place In the vast storehouse of the deep: He spake, and gave all mature birth; And fires, and seas, and heav'n, and earth, His everlasting orders keep. 4 Ye that delight to serve the Lord, The honours of his name record, His sacred name forever bless; Where'er the circling sun displays His rising beams, or setting rays, Let ev'ry tongue his pow'r confess.
