Praise for Providence. Mat. v. 45. Acts xiv. 17. Psalm cxlv. 16.
THY ways, O Lord, with wise design,
Are fram’d upon thy throne above, And
every dark or bending line
Poor mortals thine arrangements view,
And the mysterious just and true.
Though now they seem to roam uney'd,
They best and safest may abide.
But, trusting to thy piercing eye,
Nor shall the weakest fail or die.
To lay her reason at thy throne ;
HYMN 2. C. M.
The Excellence of Scripture, Tim. iii. 16. Rom. xv. 4.
VATHER of mercies, in thy word
What endless glory shines ! For ever be thy name ador’d
For these celestial lines.
Exhaustless riches find ;
And lasting as the mind.
And yields a free repast ; Sublimer sweets than nature knows,
Invite the longing taste. 4 Here the Redeemer's welcome voice
Spreads heavenly peace around ; And life and everlasting joys
Attend the blissful sound.
My ever dear delight ;
And still increasing light.
Be thou for ever near ;
And view my Saviour there. MRS. STEELE.
HYMN 3. C. M.
New honours be address'd ;
And makes the nations blest.
2 He spake the word to Abr'am first,
His truth fulfils his grace ;
And learn his righteousness.
3 Let the whole earth his love proclaim,
With all her diff'rent tongues ;
In melody and songs.
First and Second Adam. Rom. v. 14. 1 Cor. xv. 21,
LORD, what was man when made at first
the That thou should'st set him and his race But just below an angel's place?
2 That thou should'st raise his nature so,
And make him Lord of all below;
3 But, O! what brighter glories wait
To crown the second Adam's state !
4 See him below his angels made:
See him in dust among the dead,
5 The world to come, redeem'd from all
The miseries that attend the fall,
