From Root & SWEETSER'S Coll.
| Thou art, O God, the life and light of all this wondrous world we see;

we turn, thy glo - ries shine, And all things fair and bright are
3. Though in a bare and rugged way,
Through devious, lonely wilds I stray,
4. Though in the paths of death I tread,
With gloomy horrors overspread,
86. L. M. 6 lines.

Among the opening clouds of even,
Through opening vistas, into heaven
So soft, so radiant, Lord, are Thine. 3. When night, with wings of starry gloom,
O'ershadows all the earth and skies,
So grand, so countless, Lord, are Thine. 4. When youthful Spring around us breathes,
Thy Spirit warms her fragrant sigh; And every flower that Summer wreathes
Is born beneath Thy kindling eye; Where'er we turn, Thy glories shine, And all things fair and bright are Thine.
MOORE. 85. L. M. 6 lines. 1. The Lord my pasture shall prepare,
And feed me with a shepherd's care;
And all my midnight hours defend. 2. When in the sultry glebe I faint,
Or on the thirsty mountains pant,
1. ABOVE-below-where'er I gaze,
Thy guiding finger, Lord, I view,
Or glistening in the morning dew;
2. I hear Thee in the stormy wind
That turns the ocean wave to foam; Nor less Thy wondrous power I find
When summer airs around mo roam; The tempest and the calm declare
Thyself—for Thou art every where. 3. I find Thee in the noon of night,
And read Thy name in every star
That flows from mercy's beaming car :

1. The spacious firmament on high,
With all the blue, ethereal sky,
1. O SOURCE divine, and Life of all,
The Fount of being's wondrous sea! Thy depth would every heart appall,
That saw not Love supreme in Thee.
2. The wearied sun, from day to day,
Does his Creator's power display,
2. We shrink before Thy vast abyss,
Where worlds on worlds eternal brood; We know Thee truly but in this
That Thou bestowest all our good.
3. Soon as crening shades prevail,
The moon takes up the wondrous tale,
3. And so, 'mid boundless time and space,
0, grant us still in Thee to dwell, And through the ceaseless web to trace
Thy presence working all things well!
4. While all the stars that round her burn,
And all the planets in their turn,
4. Nor let Thou life's delightful play
Thy truth's transcendent vision hide; Nor strength and gladness lead astray
From Thee, our nature's only guide.
5. What though in solemn silence all
Move round the dark, terrestrial ball ?
5. Bestow on every joyous thrill
Thy deeper tone of reverent awe;

6. In reason's ear they all rejoice,
And utter forth a glorious voice;
PRAISE God from whom all blessings flow;
1. Source of being, source of light, With unfading beauties bright;Thee, when morning greets the
skies, Blushing sweet with humid eyes; Thec, when soft, de - clin-ing day Sinks in
pur - ple waves away;Thee, O pa-rent, will I sing, To thy feet my tribute bring.

With unfading beauties bright;
To Thy feet my tribute bring! 2. Yonder azure vault on high,
Yonder blue, low, liquid sky;
Earth and heaven confess their God. 3. Source of light, Thou bid'st the sun
On his burning axles run;
1. EARTH, with her ten thousand flowers,
Air, with all its beams and showers,
Caused the golden-tresséd sun
'Mid her spangled sisters bright. 3. All His creatures God doth feed,
His full hand supplies their need;
2. Sounds among the vales and hills,
In the woods and by the rills,
3. All the hopes and fears that start
From the fountain of the heart;

And in Thee begin to live,
let us be.
To the cross my spirit bind:
Fill the soul with perfect love. 3. Who in heart on Theo believes,
He the promise now receives;
Triumphs in Thy pardoning grace. 4. Boundless wisdom, power divino,
Love unspeakable, art thine:
1. To Thy pastures fair and large,
Heavenly Shepherd, lead Thy charge,
Mid the springing grass prepare.
Thou shalt guide my weary feet
3. Safe the dreary vale I tread,
By the shades of death o'erspread,
Plant Thy heavenly kingdom here;
Shine on each believing heart; 2. And, in every grace complete,
Make us, Lord, for glory meet;
4. Constant to my latest end,
Thou my footsteps shalt attend;

1. Let us with a joyful mind
Praise the Lord, for He is kind,
All ye lands, your voices raise;
Praise the Lord, forever praise. 2. For IIis truth and mercy stand,
Past and present and to be,
Like His own eternity.
Praise Him from the depths beneath; Praise Him in the heights above; Praise your Maker, all that breathe.
2. Did the solid earth ordain
How to rise above the main;
