8 That he the humble soul will save, And crush the haughty's boasted might, In me the LORD an instance gave,
Whose darkness he has turn'd to light. 4 Who then deserves to be adored,
But GOD, on whom my hopes depend? Or who, except the mighty LORD,
Can with resistless power defend? 5 Let the eternal LORD be praised,
The rock on whose defence I rest! To highest heavens his name be raised, Who me with his salvation bless'd! 6 My GoD, to celebrate thy fame, My grateful voice to heaven I'll raise; And nations, strangers to thy name, Shall learn to sing thy glorious praise. PSALM 15.
From the xix. Psalm of David.
2 The dawn of each returning day Fresh beams of knowledge brings; And from the dark returns of night Divine instruction springs.
3 Their powerful language to no realm Or region is confined;
Tis nature's voice, and understood
4 Their doctrine does its sacred sense
5 From east to west, from west to east,
1 GOD's perfect law converts the soul, Reclaims from false desires; With sacred wisdom his sure word
The ignorant inspires.
2 The statutes of the LORD are just,
1 THE heavens declare thy glory, LORD, Our heart's devout request allow,
Our holy wishes give!
3 His perfect worship here is fix'd,
4 Of more esteem than golden mines,
5 My trusty counsellors they are,
16 But what frail man observes how of
O cleanse me from my secret faults,
8 So shall my prayer and praises be
1 MAY Jacob's GoD defend
2 May he accept our vow,
3 O LORD! thy saving grace
Our banner in thy name we raise-
From heaven will strength divine affos 1,
5 Some earthly succor trust.
6 Still save us, LORD! and still
From the xxii. Psalm of David.
1 MY GOD, my GOD, why leav'st thou me
But made the rabble's mirth.
S With laughter all the gazing crowd
They shoot the lip, they shake the Lead,
4 "In GOD he trusted, boasting oft
5 Withdraw not, then, so far from me
From the xxviii. Psalm of David.
1 ADORED for ever be the LORD;
2 He is my strength and shield; my heart
10 save and bless thy people, LORD,
His wondrous power to all declare.
Where he's with solemn state adored. 3 "T is he that, with amazing noise,
The watery clouds in sunder breaks; The ocean trembles at his voice,
When he from heaven in thunder speaks.. 4 How full of power his voice appears! With what majestic terror crown'd! Which from their roots tall cedars tears,
And strews their scatter'd branches round. 5 GOD rules the angry floods on high;
His boundless sway shall never cease; His saints with strength he will supply, And bless his own with constant peace.
1 HE's blest, whose sins have pardon
No more in judgment to appear;
2 No sooner I my wound disclosed,
And mercy's healing balm pour'd in.
The harden'd sinner shall confound
Blessings of mercy shall surround.
4 His saints, that have perform'd his laws Their life in triumph shall employ; Let them, as they alone haye cause,
In grateful raptures shout for joy
3 For faithful is the word of God; His works with truth abound; He justice loves; and all the earth Is with his goodness.crown'd. 4 By his almighty word at first,
The heavenly arch was rear'd; And all the beauteous hosts of light At his command appear'd.
3 The crooked paths of vice decline,
5 Let earth, and all that dwell therein,
WHATE'ER the mighty LORD decrees,
2 How happy then are they, to whom
3 Our soul on GOD with patience waits;
4 The riches of thy mercy, LORD,
4 The Angel of the LORD encamps
Who on his succor trust.
4 The LORD from heaven beholds the just
And, when distress'd, kis gracious ear
From the xxxiv. Psalm of David
1 THROUGH all the changing scenes of
In trouble and in joy,
And charm their griefs to rest.
5 But turns his wrathful look on those
6 Deliv'rance to his saints he gives
7 Great troubles may afflict the just,
8 The wicked, from their wickedness,
Whilst righteous men, whom they detest,
9 For GoD preserves the souls of those
10 LORD, thy mercy, my sure hope,
Unfathom'd depths thy judgments are
The whole creation is thy care.
8 Since of thy goodness all partake,
With what assurance should the just Thy shelt'ring wings their refuge make, And saints to thy protection trust
