Great Parent of mankind,
The bliss for them designed.
In bonds of virtuous love,
Prepare for bliss above.
HYMN 539. C. M. [#]
And youthful vigour cease;
In strength shall still increase.
The path of life divine ;
With growing brightness shine. 3 On eagles' wings they mount, they soar,
The wings of faith and love,
They rise to heaven above.
HYMN 540. L. M. [#]
Triumph of Light and Truth. 1 O God of truth, arise, and shine,
In thy celestial light and love,
And raise our hopes to realms above.
2 O send thy gracious beams abroad,
Through sin and death's extended night, And cheer the nations with thy word,
Which brings immortal truth to light. 3 No more let persecution's hand
Sway o'er the world its iron rod, While, falsely claiming God's command,
It riots in a martyr's blood.
The glories of thy sacred name,
The wonders of thy love proclaim.

The preeminent Glory of God.
The firmament displays thy skill;
Tempest and calm, thy word fulfil:
2 Though voice nor sound inform the ear,
Well known the language of their song, When, one by one, the stars appear,
Led by the silent moon along;
Thy beauty beams on every eye.
Comes like a bridegroom from his bower, And, like a giant, glad to run
His bright career with speed and power ; Thy flaming messenger, to dart
Life through the depths of nature's heart. 4 While these transporting visions shine
Along the path of Providence,
Thy word reveals, transcending sense :
HYMN 544. L. M. [#]
Praise him, all creatures here below;
HYMN 545. C. M. [#]
Thy grateful children own
Thine everlasting throne.
All holy, good, and wise ;
On earth as in the skies.
HYMN 546. S. M. [#]

And worship round his throne. 2 His name, as sovereign Lord,
Shall sound through distant lands; Great is his grace, and sure his word ;
His truth forever stands.

Gracious Source of every joy!
