Village Hymns


THE eye of God is everywhere,

To watch the sinner’s ways;

He sees who joins in humble prayer,

And who in solemn praise.


One glance of Thine, eternal Lord,

Can pierce and search us through;

Nor heaven, nor earth, nor hell afford

A shelter from Thy view!


The universe, in every part,

At once before Thee lies;

And every thought of every heart

Is open to Thine eyes.


Prepare us, Lord, to pray and praise,

With fervent, holy love,

And fit us by Thy word of grace

To worship Thee above.
