HYMN FOR THE SCOTCH KIRK.
* These three hymns were intended agreeable to the request alluded to in the Preface, for dismissing a congregation.

1 O GOD! who madest earth, sea and air,
2 And living creatures, free and fair,
3 Thy hallowed praise is every where,
4 Halleluja!
5 All blended in the swelling song,
6 Are wise and simple, weak and strong,
7 Sweet woman's voice and Infant's tongue,
8 Halleluja!
9 Yea, woods, and winds, and waves convey
10 To the rapt ear a hymn, and say
11 "He who hath made us we obey,
12 Halleluja!"
