Praise Thy Glorious Name

Now therefore, our God, we thank Thee, and praise Thy glorious name.


Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of His holiness.

PSALMS 97:12

AND now the wants are told, that brought

Thy children to Thy knee;

Here, lingering still, we ask for nought,

But simply worship Thee.

The hope of heaven's eternal days

Absorbs not all the heart

That gives Thee glory, love, and praise

For being what Thou art.


LET praise--I say not merely thanksgiving, but praise--always form an ingredient of thy prayers. We thank God for what He is to us; for the benefits which He confers, and the blessings with which He visits us. But we praise Him for what He is in Him­self,--for His glorious excellences and perfections, in­dependently of their bearing on the welfare of the creature. And it shall often happen that when thy heart is numb and torpid, and yields not to the action of prayer, it shall begin to thaw, and at last burst, like streams under the breath of spring, from their icy prison, with the warm and genial exercise of praise.
