A Recapitulation Of All Before Spoken, With Humble Thankefulnesse For Gods Exceeding Goodnesse, To His Redeemed. Poem by Henry Arthington


O Blessed God omnipotent,
How much is mankind bound to thee,
For all thy workes so excellent,
As thou hast set them in degree.

Let Heauen, let Earth, and all therein,
Sound out thy worthy prayse,
Let Saints and Angels first begin,
To laud thy name alwaies.

Thou (blessed Lord) the Heauens didst frame,
Most glorious in our mortall eyes,
The Sunne, the Moone, the Stars by name,
That shine so bright in azure skies.

Let Heauen, &c.

Thou (blessed Lord) the earth didst make,
And all that therein doth abound,
The Sea with Fish, (all for our sake,)
With flying Foules aboue the ground.

Let Heauen, &c.

Thou (blessed Lord) aboue all these,
Didst mankind make most excellent,
That they might seeke thee still to please,
And with their guifts to be content.

Let Heauen, &c.

Thou (blessed Lord) when man had lost,
His happy state (through sinfull fall)
Didst send thy Son, (whose might is most,)
That he should reconcile vs all.

Let Heauen, &c.

Thou (blessed Lord) when Deuils and Death,
Did seeke to bring vs all to Hell,
Then sentest thou (as Scripture saith,)
Thine onely Sonne their force to quell,

Let Heauen, &c.

Thou (blessed Lord) when sinne vs held,
That we could neuer come to thee,
Didst send thy Sonne, who hath expeld,
His force that we might freed be.

Let heauen, &c.

Thou (blessed Lord) when we lacke faith,
Or workes the same for to expresse,
Both these, thy grace supplyed hath,
That we might come to blessednesse.

Let heauen, &c.

For all these fauours in thy word,
Whereby thy kindnesse is exprest,
We magnifie thy name (O Lord)
Who euer was and shall be blest.

Let heauen, let earth, and all therein,
Sound out thy worthy praise,
Let Saints and Angels first begin,
To laud thy name alwaies.
