Page 7 - Providence. \ 1 GOD moves in a mysterious way, His wonders to perform : He plants his footsteps in the sea, And rides upon the storm. 2 Deep in unfathomable mines Of never-failing skill, He treasures up his bright designs, And works his sovereign will. 3 Ye fearful saints ! fresh courage take : The clouds ye so much dread, Are big with mercy, and will break In blessings on your head.
Page 21 - Sweet fields, beyond the swelling flood, Stand dressed in living green ; So to the Jews old Canaan stood, While Jordan rolled between.
Page 50 - All that spring with bounteous hand Scatters o'er the smiling land ; All that liberal autumn pours From her rich o'erflowing stores ; 5 These to thee, our God ! we owe, Source whence all our blessings flow! And for these our souls shall raise Grateful vows and solemn praise.
Page 21 - But timorous mortals start and shrink, To cross this narrow sea, And linger shivering on the brink, And fear to launch away.
Page 15 - LORD of the worlds above, How pleasant and how fair The dwellings of thy love, Thine earthly temples, are ! To thine abode my heart aspires, With warm desires to see my God.
Page 16 - He comes, the broken heart to bind, The bleeding soul to cure, And with the treasures of his grace To enrich the humble poor.
