The thunders rolling round the skies,
His power and glory show.
 
5 The broad expanse on high,
With all the heavens afford;
The crinkling fire that streaks, the sky,
Unite to praise the Lord.
 
Chorus. By all that shines above
His glory is express’d;
But saints that know his endless love,
Should sing his praises best.
 
Hymn 8 • O happy souls who pray
HYMN 8. P. M.
 
1 O happy souls who pray
Where God appoints to hear!
O happy saints who pay
Their constant service there!
We praise him still;
And happy we;
We love the way
To Zion’s hill.
 
2 No burning heats by day,
Nor blasts of evening air,
Shall take our health away,
If God be with us there:
He is our sun, [p. 14]
The thunders rolling round the skies,
His power and glory show.
