PSALM 104. Second Part. L.M.
Providence. (cont.)

  4 O! bless his name, ye nations, fed
With nature's chief supporter, bread:
While bread your vital strength imparts,
Serve him with vigour in your hearts.

PSALM 104. Third Part. L.M.

  1 BEHOLD! the stately cedar stands
Rais'd in the forest by his hands;
Birds to the boughs for shelter fly,
And build their nests secure on high.
  2 To craggy hills ascends the goat;
And at the airy mountain's foot,
The feeble creatures make their cell:
He gives them wisdom where to dwell.
  3 He sets the sun his circling race,
Appoints the moon to change her face;
And when thick darkness veils the day,
Calls out wild beasts to hunt their prey.
  4 Fierce lions lead their young abroad,
And roaring, ask their meat from God;
But when the morning beams arise,
The savage beast to covert flies.
  5 Then man to daily labour goes;
The night was made for his repose:
Sleep is thy gift, that sweet relief
From tiresome toil, and wasting grief.
  6 How strange thy works! how great thy skill!
All lands thy boundless riches fill:
Thy wisdom round the world we see;
This spacious earth is full of thee.
  7 Nor less thy glories in the deep,
Where fish in millions swim and creep,
With wondrous motions swift or slow,
Still wand'ring in the paths below.

PSALM 104. Third Part. L.M.
Providence. (cont.)

  8 There ships divide their wat'ry way,
And flocks of scaly monsters play;
There dwells the huge Leviathan,
And foams and sports in spite of man.

PSALM 104. Fourth Part. L.M.

  1 VAST are thy works, Almighty Lord!
All nature rests upon thy word:
And the whole race of creatures stands,
Waiting their portion from thy hands.
  2 While each receives his diff'rent food,
His cheerful looks pronounce it good:
Eagles and bears, and whales and worms
Rejoice, and praise in diff 'rent forms.
  3 But when thy face is hid they mourn,
And dying, to their dust return;
Both man and beast their souls resign:
Life, breath, and spirit, all are thine.
  4 Yet thou can'st breathe on dust again,
And fill the world with beasts and men:
A word of thy creating breath
Repairs the wastes of time and death.
  5 Thy works, the wonders of thy might,
Are honour'd with thine own delight:
How awful are thy glorious ways!
Lord, thou art dreadful in thy praise.
  6 The earth stands trembling at thy stroke,
And at thy touch the mountains smoke;
Yet humble souls may see thy face,
And tell their wants to sov'reign grace.
  7 In thee my hopes and wishes meet,
And make my meditations sweet:
Thy praises shall my breath employ,
'Till it expire in endless joy.
