§1. An Address to the Deity. Thomson.
§ 2. Adam and Eve, in a Morning Hymn, call upon all the Parts of the Creation to join with them in extolling their common Maker.
THESE are Thy glorious works, Parent of good,
Moon, that now meet'st the orient sun, now fly'st
And ye five other wand'ring fires that move
$3. On the Deity.
In ev'ry leaf that trembles to the breeze
Thy hopes shall animate my drooping soul, Thy precepts guide me, and thy fear control: Thus shall I rest, unmov'd by all alarms, Secure within, the temple of thine arms, From anxious cares, from gloomy terrors free, And feel myself omnipotent in thee.
Then when the last, the closing hour draws nigh,
And earth recedes before my swimming eye;
Thy providence my life sustain'd,
And all my wants redress'd, When in the silent womb I lay,
And hung upon the breast. To all my weak complaints and cries Thy mercy lent an ear, Ere yet my feeble thoughts had learnt To form themselves in pray'r. Unnumber'd comforts to my soul
Thy tender care bestow'd, Before my infant heart conceiv'd
From whom those comforts flow'd. When in the slipp'ry paths of youth With heedless steps I ran, Thine arm unseen convey'd me safe, And led me up to man.
Through hidden dangers, toils, and deaths,
When worn with sickness, oft hast thou
Has doubled all my store.

$5 Hymn on Providence. Addison: THE Lord my pasture shall prepare, And feed me with a shepherd's care: His presence shall my wants supply, And guard me with a watchful eye; My noon-day walks he shall attend, And all my inidnight hours defend. When in the sultry glebe I faint, Or on the thirsty mountains pant; To fertile vales, and dewy meads, My weary wand'ring steps he leads ; Where peaceful rivers, soft and slow, Amid the verdant landskip flow.
Tho' in the paths of Death I tread,
$6. Another Hymn, from the beginning of the 19th Psalm. Addison.
THE spacious firmament on high, With all the blue ethereal sky, And spangled Heavens, a shining frame, Their great Original proclaim. Th' unwearied sun, from day to day, Does his Creator's pow'r display, And publishes to every land The work of an Almighty hand. Soon as the evening shades prevail, The moon takes up the wond'rous tale, And nightly to the list'ning earth, Repeats the story of her birth: Whilst all the stars that round her burn, And all the planets in their turn,
