Summe Deus! miserator,
And God said " Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and let the fowl fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.”
On mighty plumes to dazzling height,
The eagle springs :
The lark at morn his sprightly welcome sings.
From such enchanting lays.
quoniam tu solus sanotus, tu solus Dominus, tu solus altissimus Jesu Christe. Cum sancto Spiritu in gloria Dei Patris, Amen.
RECITATIVE AND SONG: Esther:-HANDEL.
Now persecution shall lay by, her iron rod,
Tune your harps to cheerful strains,
Moulder idols into dust;
We in great Jehovah trust.

NATIONAL GERMAN HYMN-HAYDN.
(The words written for the Second Yorkshire · Festival, by
John Crosse, Esq.):
Hear us from thy bright abode,
Own their great and gracious God
* Of each good and perfect thing: Chor. Lord of life, and light, and glory!
Guide thy Church, and guard our 'King.
Health and every needful blessing,
Are thy bounteous gifts alone;
Bend we low before thy throne :: se'!
* While the babe, the youth, the hoarý,
Their united tribute, bring:
Sbield our Isle, and save our King.
Thee, with humble adoration,
Laud we, now, for mércies past;
May those mercies ever last!
With their prayers shall praises sing :
Bless thy People, bless their King.
SONG.-Judas Maccabeus. - HANDEL.
My arms! -Against this Gorgias will I go-
Sound an alarm. Your silver trumpets sonnd,
We hear, we hear the pleasing, dreadful call;
GREAT GOD WHAT DO I SEE AND HEAR!
Fix'd in his everlasting seat,
Jehovah rules the world in state ; His thunders roar, heav'n shakes, and earth's aghast; ;
The stars with deep amaze,
Remain in steadfast gaze: Jehovah is of Gods the first and last.
