Thanksgiving.

2 Praise ye the Lord, proclaim His might,
Who made our fathers free,
Who gave to us a heavenly light
The sun of liberty.
A prosperous people hails
Its bright and genial ray,
And golden peace prevails
Wide o'er the land to-day.

3 Then let your hymns of thanks ascend,
To the Almighty's throne,

To whom in gratitude we bend,
Who reigned supreme alone.
Of His great mercies tell,
Whom earth and heaven adore,
Let hallelujahs swell

His praise for evermore.

Give Thanks to God.

Great God, my joyful thanks to Thee Shall,like Thy gifts, con- tin-ual be;

In con-stant streams Thy bounty flows, Nor end nor

in

ter mis-sion knows.

I Great God! my joyful thanks to Thee
Shall, like Thy gifts, continual be;
In constant streams Thy bounty flows,
Nor end nor intermission knows.

2 Thy kindness all my comforts gives;
My numerous wants Thy hand relieves ;
Nor can I ever, Lord, be poor,
Who live on Thy exhaustless store.
3 If what I wish Thy will denies,
It is that Thou art good and wise;

Troubles which might me cause to mourn
Thou canst, Thou dost, to blessings turn.
4 Deep, Lord, upon my thankful breast
Let all Thy favors be impressed;

And though withdrawn Thy gifts should be,
In all things I'll give thanks to Thee.

Now Thank We All Our God.

2 Oh, may this bounteous God
Through all our life be near us,
With ever joyful hearts

And blessed peace to cheer us,
And keep us in his grace,

And guide us when perplexed,
And keep us safe froni ill,
In this life till the next.

Thanksgiving.

No. 72.

Fountain of

life, and God of love! How rich Thy bounties are!

The roll- ing

seasons, as they move, Proclaim Thy constant care.

I Fountain of life, and God of love!
How rich Thy bounties are!
The rolling seasons, as they move,
Proclaim Thy constant care.

2 When in the bosom of the earth
The sower hid the grain,

3

Thy goodness marked its secret birth,
And sent the early rain.

The spring's sweet influence, Lord, was Thine,

Its mild, refreshing showers;
Thou gav'st the ripening suns to shine,
And summer's golden hours.

4 Thy quickening life, forever near,
Matured the swelling grain ;—

The bounteous harvest crowns the year,
And plenty fills the plain.

5 With thankful hearts we trace Thy way
Through all our smiling vales;

Thou, by whose love, nor night nor day
Seed-time nor harvest fails!
