From the lxvii. Psalm of David
1 TO bless thy chosen race,
2 That so thy wondrous way
May through the world be known; While distant lands their tribute pay, And thy salvation own.
3 Let diff'ring nations join
Let all the world, O LORD, combine
5 Let diff'ring nations join
Let all the world, O LORD, combine
6 Then GOD upon our land
Shall constant blessings shower; And all the world in awe shall stand Of his resistless power.
1 THE servants of JEHOVAH'S Will
Thy gifts and graces freely shed.
Be daily his great Name adored,
From the Ixix. Psalm of David.
1 SAVE me, O GOD, from waves that roll
6 Thou, LORD, hast taught me from my To praise thy glorious Name; And ever since, thy wondrous works [youth Have been my constant theme. 7 Therefore, with psaltery and harp Thy truth, O LORD, I'll praise; To thee, the GOD of Jacob's race, My voice in anthems raise.
8 Then joy shall fill my mouth, and songs
1 LO! hills and mountains shall bring forth
2 While David's Son our needy race
In every heart thy awful fear
As long as sun and moon endure, Or time itself shall last.
4 He shall descend like rain, that cheers The meadow's second birth;
Or like warm showers whose gentle drops Refresh the thirsty earth.
5 In his biest days the just and good
6 His uncontroll'd dominion shall
7 To him the savage nations round
8 The kings of Tarshish and the isles
9 To him shall every king on earth
10 For he shall set the needy free,
11 For him shall constant prayer be made
12 The mem'ry of his glorious Name
13 In him the nations of the world
14 Then bless'd be Gon, the mighty LORD, The GOD whom Israel fears; Who only wondrous in his works
Beyond compare, appears.
15 Let earth be with his glory fill'd, For ever bless his Name; Whilst to his praise the list'ning world 'Their glad assent proclaim.
L. M. From the lxxii. Psalm of David. 1 THY presence, LORD, hath me supplied, Thou my right hand support dost give: Thou first shalt with thy counsel guide,
And then to glory me receive.
2 Whom then in heaven, but thee alune, Have I, whose favor I require? Throughout the spacious earth there's none Compared with thee, that I desire.
3 My trembling flesh and aching heart
4 For they that far from thee remove Shall into sudden ruin fall; If after other gods they rove, Thy vengeance shall destroy them all. 5 But as for me, 't is good and just
That I should still to God repair; In him I always put my trust,
And will his wondrous works declare.
1 THINE is the cheerful day, O LORD;
2 By thee the borders of the earth
From the lxxiv. Psalm of David.
1 THE name of our GoD
There broke he the arrows
Is turn'd to thy praise; Their fierceness o'er-ruled
Thy providence sways.
And to their prayers have no return?
And reach'd to proud Euphrates' stream 5 To thee, O GOD of hosts, we pray,
Thy wonted goodness, LORD, renew; From heaven, thy throne, this vine survey. And her sad state with pity view.
Behold the vineyard made by thee, Which thy right hand did guard so long; And keep that branch from danger free, Which for thyself thou mad'st so strong. 7 Do thou convert us, LORD, do thou
The lustre of thy face display;
Like scatter'd clouds, shall pass away.
1 TO GOD, our never-failing strength,
2 Compose a hymn of praise, and touch
Their joyful voices raise,
4 For this a statute was of old,
C. M. From the lxxxiv. Psalm of David.
1 O GOD of hosts, the mighty LORD, How lovely is the place
Where thou, enthroned in glory, show'st The brightness of thy face!
2 My longing soul faints with desire
3 The birds, more happy far than I, Around thy temple throng; Securely there they build, and there Securely hatch their young.
4 O LORD of hosts, my king and GOD,
Their sure protection made, Who long to tread the sacred ways
That to thy dwelling lead!
8 Within thy courts one single day "T is better to attend, Than, LORD, in any other place A thousand days to spend.
5 Thrice happy they, whose choice has thee While we his holy steps pursue With constant zeal and care.
8 Before him righteousness shall march, And his just paths prepare;
1 TO my complaint, O LORD my GOD,
2 Do thou, O GOD, preserve my soul, That does thy Name adore;
Thy servant keep, and him whose trust Relies on thee, restore.
3 To me, who daily thee invoke,
From the lxxxviii. Psalm of David
1 GOD of my life, O LORD most high, To thee by day and night I cry; Vouchsafe my mournful voice to hear, To iny distress ircline thine ear.
2 Like those whose strength and hopes ar fled,
They number me among the dead;
3 Wilt thou by miracle revive
4 To thee, O LORD, I cry forlorn,
5 Companions dear, and friends beloved," Far from my sight thou hast temoved: GOD of my life, O LORD most high, Vouchsafe to hear my mournful cry!
PSALM 68. 1
1 THY mercies, LORD, shall be my song
Thy never-failing truth shall tell. 2 I have affirm'd, and still maintain, Thy mercy shall for ever last; Thy truth, that does the heavens sustalli, Like them shall stand for ever fast.
3 Thus spak'st thou by thy prophet's voice "With David 1 a league have made; To him, my servant, and my choice, By solemn oath this grant convey'd. 4 "While earth, and seas, and skies endure Thy seed shall in my sight remain; To them thy throne I will ensure,
They shall to endless ages reign." 5 For such stupendous truth and love, Both heaven and earth just praises owe, By choirs of angels sung above,
And by assembled saints below. 6 What seraph of celestial birth
To vie with Israel's GOD shall dare? Or who among the gods of earth With our Almighty LORD compare. 7 With reverence and religious dread, His saints should to his temple press; His fear through all their hearts should spread,
Who his almighty Name confess.
3 LORD GOD of armies, who can boast Of strength or power like thine renown'd? Of such a num'rous, faithful host,
As that which does thy throne surround!
