HYMN 1.

(C. M.) 1 REAT God! with wonder and with praise

On all thy works I look;
But still thy wisdom, power, and grace,

Shine brightest in thy book.
2 The stars, that in their courses roll,

Have much instruction given; But thy good word informs my soul

How I may soar to heaven. 3 The fields provide me food, and show

The goodness of the Lord; But fruits of life and glory grow

In thy most holy word. 4 Here are my choicest treasures hid;

Here my best comfort lies; Here my desires are satisfied,

And here my hopes arise. 5 Lord, make me understand thy law,

Show what my faults have been, And from thy Gospel let me draw

Pardon for all my sin.
6 Here would I learn how Christ has died

To save my soul from hell;
Not all the books on earth beside,

Such heavenly wonders tell.
7 Then let me love my Bible more,

And take a fresh delight,
By day to read these wonders o’er,
And meditate by night.
HYMN 2.

(C. M. 1 ATHER of mercies! in thy word

What endless glory shines!
For ever be thy name ador'd,

For these celestial lines.
