The Psalms And Hymns Of Isaac Watts by Isaac Watts

HYMN 99 The book of God's decrees.

C. M.

The book of God's decrees.

Let the whole race of creatures lie

Abased before their God;

Whate'er his sovereign voice has formed

He governs with a nod.

[Ten thousand ages ere the skies

Were into motion brought,

All the long years and worlds to come

Stood present to his thought.

There's not a sparrow or a worm

But's found in his decrees;

He raises monarchs to their throne,

And sinks them as he please.]

If light attends the course I run,

'Tis he provides those rays;

And 'tis his hand that hides my sun,

If darkness clouds my days.

Yet I would not be much concerned,

Nor vainly long to see

The volume of his deep decrees,

What months are writ for me.

When he reveals the book of life,

O may I read my name

Amongst the chosen of his love,

The followers of the Lamb!
