PSALM 96. First Part. C.M.
The first and second coming of Christ. (cont.)

  4 Ye mountains sink; ye vallies rise;
   Prepare the Lord his way.
  5 Behold he comes! he comes to bless
   The nations as their God:
To show the world his righteousness,
   And send his truth abroad.
  6 But when his voice shall raise the dead,
   And bid the world draw near;
How will the guilty nations dread,
   To see their Judge appear!

PSALM 96. Second Part. P.M.
The God of the Gentiles.

  1 THE heathen know thy glory, Lord;
The wond'ring nations read thy word;
   In these far climes Jehovah's known:
Our worship shall no more be paid
To gods which mortal hands have made;
   Our Maker is our God alone.
  2 He fram'd the globe, he built the sky;
He made the shining worlds on high;
   And reigns complete in glory there:
His beams are majesty and light;
His beauties, how divinely bright!
   His temple, how divinely fair!
  3 Come, the great day, the glorious hour,
When earth shall feel his saving pow'r,
   And barb'rous nations fear his name:
Then shall the race of man confess
The beauty of his holiness;
   And in his courts his grace proclaim.

PSALM 97. First Part. L.M.
Christ reigning, and coming to judgment.

  1 HE reigns; the Lord, the Saviour reigns!
Praise him in evangelic strains:

PSALM 97. First Part. L.M.
Christ reigning, and coming to judgment. (cont.)

  1 Let the whole earth in songs rejoice,
And distant islands join their voice.
  2 Deep are his counsels and unknown;
But grace and truth support his throne:
Tho' gloomy clouds his way surround,
Justice is their eternal ground.
  3 In robes of Judgment, lo, he comes!
Shakes the wide earth, and cleaves the tombs:
Before him burns devouring fire;
The mountains melt, the seas retire.
  4 His enemies, with sore dismay,
Fly from the sight, and shun the day:
Then lift your heads, ye saints, on high,
And sing, for your redemption's nigh.

PSALM 97. Second Part. L.M.
Let all the angels of God worship him.

  1 THE Lord is come; the heav'ns proclaim
His birth; the nations learn his name:
An unknown star directs the road
Of eastern sages to their God.
  2 All ye bright armies of the skies,
Go, worship, where the Saviour lies:
Angels and kings before him bow,
Those Gods on high and gods below.
  3 Let idols totter to the ground,
And their own worshippers confound:
Let Judah shout, let Zion sing,
And earth confess her sov'reign King.

PSALM 97. Third Part. L.M.
Grace and glory.

  1 TH' Almighty reigns, exalted high
O'er all the earth, o'er all the sky:
Tho' clouds and darkness veil his feet,
His dwelling is the mercy-seat.
