His hand who can stay?
His wisdom ne'er errs,
His truth never fails,
They are safe in his friendship,
Who walk in his way ;
To them, thro' all changes,

Praises yield to heaven's high Lord ;
Praise him, all of human birth,
And his wondrous acts record.
2 Health and plenty crown our land,
We have freedom, truth, and peace :
Ever bounteous is his hand;
Never let your praises cease.
God our Mepherd.
I LO, my shepherd is divine,
Care shall never more be mine;
In his pastures fair and large
He shall tend his happy charge.

Thou my daily table spread ;
By thee guarded from my foes
I have sure and sweet repose.

I will trust my shepherd's care :
To my fuccor he will come
And conduct me safely home.

Our future blifs to ensure Thine holy counsels to fulfil ; To suffer all thy righteous will;
And to the end endure.
2 Then, Lord, our willing souls receive,
Translated from below, to live
And reign in heaven above,
Where faith is sweetly lost in sight;
And hope, in full, fupreme, delight
And everlasting love.
PRAISE to thee, thou great creator,
Praise be thine from every tongue :
Join, my soul, with every creature,
Join the universal song,

For the richest gifts bestow'd
Sound his praise thro' earth and heaven,
Sound Jehovah's praise aloud.
