Ver. 7-9, 13-18.
The Seasons of the Year.
o 1 WITH songs and honours, sounding Address the Lord on high: [loud, Over the heav'ns he spreads his cloud, And waters veil the sky.
b 2 He sends his show'rs of blessings down To cheer the plains below; [crown, He makes the grass the mountains And corns in vallies grow.
o 3 He gives the grazing ox his meat,
But man who tastes his finest wheat,
e 4 His steady counsels change the face
5 His hoary frost, his fleecy snow,
。 6 When from his dreadful stores on high
Shall find his courage fail.
b 7 He sends his word and melts the snow,
o 8 The changing wind, the flying cloud, Obey his mighty word:
4 Great is our Lord,and great his might;
5 Sing to the Lord, exalt him high,, Who spreads his clouds all round the sky; There he prepares the fruitful rain, Nor lets the drops descend in vain.
6 He makes the grass the hills adorn,
7 What is the creature's skill or force,
8 But saints are lovely in his sight;
With songs and honours sounding loud,
4 He mov'd their mighty wheels
In unknown ages past;
In diff'rent ways
e 8 Ye kings and judges, fear,
His pow'r supreme.
9 Virgins and youths, engage To sound his praise divine; e While infancy and age Their feebler voices join: Wide as he reigns, His name be sung By every tongue,
In endless strains.
g1 LOUD hallelujahs to the Lord, [dwell; From distant worlds where creatures Let heav'n begin the solemn word, And sound it dreadful down to hell. 2
e 3 High on a throne his glories dwell, An awful throne of shining bliss; Fly through the world, O sun, and tell How dark thy beams compar❜d to his. 4-5e67de
-9 Mortals, can you refrain your tongue, • When nature all around you sings? u O for a shout from old and young, From humble swains, and lofty kings!
g 10 Wide-as his vast dominion liesMake the Creator's name be known:
u Loud-as his thunder-shout his praise, g And sound it lofty--as his throne.
e 11 JEHOVAH! 'tis a glorious word,
O may it dwell on ev'ry tongue! [Lord,
12 Speak of the wonders of that love,
2 Thou sun, with golden beams,
3 He built those worlds above,
And fix'd their wondrous frame; By his command they stand or move, And ever speak his name.
4 Ye vapours, when you rise, Or fall in show'rs, or snow;
Ye thunders,murm'ring round the skies,
5 Wind, hail, and flashing fire,
When ye in dreadful storms conspire
