188 HYMN 394.
Ye heavens, send forth your song of praise !
Earth, raise your voice below!
Let hills and mountains join the hymn.
And joy through na - ture flow,

And joy through na - ture flow.
2 Behold, how gracious is our God!
Hear the consoling strains,
In which he cheers our drooping hearts,
And mitigates our pains.
3 Cease ye, when days of darkness come,
In sad dismay to mourn,
As if the Lord could leave his saints
Forsaken or forlorn.
4 Can the fond mother e'er forget
The infant whom she bore?
And can its plaintive cries be heard.
Nor move compassion more?
5 She may forget: nature may fail
A parent's heart to move;
But Sion on my heart shall dwell
In everlasting love.
6 Full in my sight, upon my hands
I have engraved her name;
My hands shall build her ruined walls
And raise her broken frame.
