From its stem the rip’ning ear;
Drop her green untimely fruit;
Nor the olive yield her store ;
And the herds desert the stall:
And the rising year destroy :
Grateful vows and solemn praise ;
Love thee-for thyself alone ! 25 L. M. God exalted above all praise.
WATTS'S LYRICS. 1 1 ETERNAL power! whose high abode
Becomes the grandeur of a God; Infinite length beyond the bounds Where stars revolve their little rounds.
2 The lowest step beneath thy seat
Rises too bigb for Gabriel's feet;
To reach thine height with wond'ring eyes. 3 Dazzled with glory, while he sings,
He hides his face behind his wings;
1 4 Lord, what shall earth and ashes do?
We would adore our maker too!
The GREAT, the Holy, and the high. 5 Earth from afar has heard thy fame,
And worms bave learn’d to lisp tby name;
Leave all our soaring thoughts bebind.
ROBINSOX. 1 COME, thou fount of every blessing!
Tune my heart to sing thy praise !
2 Here I raise my Eben-Ezer,
Hither by thy help I'm come ;
3 0! to grace bow great a debtor
Daily I'm constrain'd to be!
27 L. M. Universal Praise. Parnell.
1 THE sun that walks his airy way,
To light the world, and give the day; The moon that shines with borrow'd light, \ The stars that gild the gloomy night; 2 The seas that roll unnumber'd waves,
The wood that spreads its shady leaves;
3 The whole of these, and all I see,
Ought to be sung, and sung by me:
L. M. Universal Praise.
1 PRAISE to the God who arch’d the sky,
Is the high note that wakes my
tongue: Praise to the God who reigns on high, Shall be the cadence of my song.
2 Celestial worlds your Maker's pame
Resound through ev'ry shining coast;
3 Angels that his commission bear,
And ye that wait around his throne,
Vonarchs, who hold imperial sway,
i Let youth of ev'ry sex and rank, Exulting in the bloom of life, Their God for all bis blessings thank, And join the loud barmonious strife. i Hoary in boliness, the sage, With grateful songs should meet his death And infants in their tender age,
Should lisp their God with joyful breath. y From clime to clime, from shore to shore,
Be the Almighty God ador'd;
And sways them with his sov'reign word, 8 At once, let nature's ample round,
To God the vast thanksgiving raise ;
INCARNATION OF CHRIST.
7's. Christmas Advent. BOYCE ARK! the herald angels sing, Glory to the new born king!
