The Infinity of God. Ps. 147. 5; Heb. 4. 13
1 Great God! how infinite art thou!What worthless worms are we!Let the whole race of creatures bow,And pay their praise to thee!2 Thy throne eternal ages stood,Ere seas or stars were made;Thou art the ever-living God,Were all the nations dead.3 [Nature and time quite naked lieTo thy immense survey,From the formation of the sky,To the great burning day.]4 Eternity, with all its years,Stands present in thy view;To thee there’s nothing old appears –Great God! there’s nothing new!5 Our lives through various scenes are drawn,And vexed with trifling cares,While thy eternal thought moves onThy undisturbed affairs.6 Great God! how infinite art thou!What worthless worms are we!Let the whole race of creatures bow,And pay their praise to thee!

The Eternity of God. Ps. 90. 2; Lam. 5. 19; Hab. 1. 12
1 Lord, raise my soul above the ground,And draw my thoughts to thee;Teach me, with sweet and solemn sound,To praise the eternal Three.2 Long ere the lofty skies were spread,Jehovah filled his throne;Or Adam formed, or angels made,The Maker lived alone.3 His boundless years can ne’er decrease,But still maintain their prime;Eternity’s his dwelling-place,And ever is his time.4 While like a tide our minutes flow,The present and the past,He fills his own immortal NOW,And sees our ages waste.5 The sea and sky must perish too,And vast destruction come!The creatures! look how old they grow,And wait their fiery doom.6 Well; let the sea shrink all away,And flame melt down the skies,My God shall live an endless dayWhen the old creation dies.
