HYMNS AND ANTHEMS

FOR JEWISH WORSHIP.

PRAISE AND PRAYER.

1.

A SONG OF PRAISE.

Sing to the Sovereign of the skies,

To His great name alone,
Let winged words of praise arise

To the Almighty's throne.
For He has given His law of light

A radiant star to be,
To guide our erring steps aright,

For all eternity.

Praise be to Thee, who didst command

Thy first-born Israel,
In every clime, in every land,

Thy living truths to tell.
O may they ever be our guide,

And bear us safely o’er
Life's dark and swiftly flowing tide,

Until it flows no more.

J. K. G. MORNING PRAYER.

(Psalm 5.)
Regard my words, O gracious Lord,

Accept my secret prayer;
To Thee alone, my King, my God,

Will I for help repair.
Thou in the morn my voice shalt hear;

And, with the dawning day,
To Thee devoutly I'll look up,

To Thee devoutly pray.
To righteous men, the righteous Lord

His blessings will extend: And in His love, His pious sons

As with a shield defend.

3.

EXTOL THE KING.

Extol the King who, throned above,
And crowned with righteousness and love,
Hath reigned from the eternal past,
And shall be Sovereign to the last.

His praise the morning sun began,
Ere he the course of nature ran,
When conscious of a glow divine,
In majesty he rose to shine.

His praise the stars of evening sung,
When they into their orbits sprung,
And filled the firmament of night,
With glory from a greater light.

And earth, to its remotest bound,
Still circulates the joyous sound,
Rock, wave, and wind, and tree, and flow'r,
Confess an omnipresent Pow'r.

Art thou alone, O mortal man!
A silent witness of that plan,
By wisdom and by mercy wrought,
That faith might to thy soul be taught

Arise! and with thy heart and voice,
In presence of thy God rejoice!
For thought and speech to thee belong,
For meditative praise and song.

P. M.

4.

ONE GOD REIGNS.

O’er all this wide and beauteous earth,

One God immortal reignsHis glory, truth, and unity

Link'd by eternal chains.

Let angels join in holy song

Around His heav'nly throne, And mortals, with undying hope,

Look up to Him alone.

The gratitude of ev'ry heart

Its incense bears to Thee, O Ruler of the starry sky,

The earth and boundless sea !
