60 (L.M.) Philip Doddridge

Ye sons of men, with joy record

The various wonders of the Lord;

And let His pow'r and goodness sound

Through all your tribes the earth around.

Let the high heav'ns your songs invite,

Those spacious fields of brilliant light,

Where sun and moon and planets roll,

And stars that glow from pole to pole.

Sing, earth, in verdant robes arrayed,

Its herbs and flow'rs, its fruits and shade,

Peopled with life of various forms,

Of fish, and fowl, and beasts, and worms.

View the broad sea's majestic plains,

And think how wide its Maker reigns;

That band remotest nations joins,

And on each wave His goodness shines.

But, oh! — that brighter world above,

Where lives and reigns incarnate love,

God's only Son in flesh arrayed,

For man a bleeding victim made.

Thither, my soul, with rapture soar!

There in the land of praise adore;

The theme demands an endless lay —

Demands an everlasting day.
