16 Let Israel's God be ever biess'd,
3 Happy are they, and only they,
50 may I worthy prove to see
From the cvii. Psalm of David. PART I. II. 1. MAGNIFY JEHOVAH'S Name; For his mercies ever sure, From eternity the same, To eternity endure.
2 Let his ransom'd flock rejoice, Gather'd out of every land, As the people of his choice, Pluck'd from the destroyer's hand 3 In the wilderness stray,
In the lonely waste, they roam, Hungry, fainting by the way,
Far from refuge, shelter, home: 4 To the LORD their GOD they cry; He inclines a gracious ear, Sends deliv'rance from on high,
Rescues them from all their fear:
5 Them to pleasant lands he brings, Where the vine and olive grow; Where, from verdant hills, the springs Through luxuriant vallies flow.
6 0 that men would praise the LORD,
1 THY wondrous power, Almighty LORD
2 At thy command the winds arise, And swell the tow'ring waves; While they astonish'd mount the skies, And sink in gaping graves.
3 Dismay'd they climb the wat'ry hills.
4 Then to the LORD they raise their cries
5 Rejoicing, they forget their fears,
6 O that the sons of men would praise
II. 2. From the cx. Psalm of David. 1 THE LORD unto my Lord thus spake: ""Till I thy foes thy footstool make, Sit thou in state at my right hand: Supreme in Sion thou shalt be, And all thy proud opposers see
Subjected to thy just command. 2"Thee, in thy power's triumphant day, The willing people shall obey;
And, when thy rising beams they view, Shall all, (redeem'd from error's night,) Appear more numerous and bright
Than crystal drops of morning dew." 8 The LORD hath sworn, nor sworn in vain, That, like Melchisedec's, thy reign
And priesthood shall no period see: Anointed Prince! thou, bending low, Shalt drink where darkest torrents flow, Then raise thy head in victory!
4 By precepts he hath us enjoin'd To keep his wondrous works in mind; And to posterity record
That good and gracious is our LORD.
2 The soul that 's fill'd with virtue's light
His sacred Name for ever bless:
Due praise to his great Name address. 2 God through the world extends his sway; The regions of eternal day
But shadows of his glory are: With him whose majesty excels, Who made the heaven in which he dwells, Let no created power compare.
3 Though 't is beneath his state to view In highest heaven what angels do,
Yet he to earth vouchsafes his care, He takes the needy from his cell, Advancing him in courts to dwell, Companion of the greatest there.
1 LORD, not to us, we claim no share
2 Why should the Heathen cry, "Where 's 18 Therefore my life's remaining years.
Which GOD to me shall lend,
The GOD whom ye adore ?" Convince them that in heaven thou art, And uncontroll'd thy power.
3 0 Israel, make the LORD your trust,
4 Let all who truly fear the LORD
9 In GoD I trusted, and of him
10 O what return to GOD shall I
I'll praise his Name, and with glad sexl
6 On you, and on your heirs, he will
7 Heaven's highest orb of glory he
8 They who in death and silence sleep
1 MY soul with grateful thoughts of love
Because the LORD vouchsafed to hear
2 Since he has now his ear inclined,
But still in all the straits of life
To him address my prayer.
3 With deadly scrrows compass'd round,
5 How just and merciful is GOD,
For GOD has wondrously to thee
His bounteous love express'd.
7 When death alarm'd me, he removed
11 I'll pay my vows among his saints
12 To thee I'll off'ringe bring of praise;
13 They in Jerusalem shall meet,
1 WITH cheerful notes let all the earth
2 Gop's tender mercy knows no bound,
C. M. From the cxvii. Psalm of David.
1 O PRAISE the LORD, for he is good, His mercies ne'er decay;
That his kind favors ever last,
Let thankful Israel say.
2 Their sense of his eternal love
That fear the LORD confess.
And have the LORD our friend,
For safety to depend.
4 The LORD has been my help; the praise To him alone belongs;
8 Then, free from pensive cares, my soul, 5 Joy fills the dwelling of the just,
Resume thy wonted rest;
Whom God has saved from harm;
For wondrous things are brought to pass
6 He, by his own resistless power,
He is my Saviour and my strength,
The saving strength of his right hand
7 GOD wil. not suffer me to fall,
8 When GOD had sorely me chastised,
9 Then open wide the temple gaies
10 Within those gates of God's abode
11 That which the builders once refused
12 This day is GOD's; let all the land
13 Him that approaches in GoD's name
15 Thou art my LORD, O GOD, and still
16 O then with me give thanks to GOD,
15 O then that thy most holy will
Have wish'd you good success."
3 Safe in my heart, and closely hid
14 GOD is the LORD, through whom we all To succor me with timely aid
When sinful thoughts arise.
Fast to the altar's horns with cords
From the cxix. Psalm of David. PART I. ALEPH.
7 Therefore thy just and upright laws Shall always fill my mind;
I HOW bless'd are they who always keep And those sound rules which thou prescrib Entire respect shall find.
The pure and perfect way; Who never from the sacred paths
Of God's commandments stray!
4 Secured by that, my grateful soul
O teach me then by thy just laws
My lips, unlock'd by pious zeal,
6 Whilst in the way of thy commands.
8 To keep thy statutes undefaced
PART III. GIMEL. C. M.
1 BE gracious to thy servant, LORD;
That I according to thy word
2 Enlighten both my eyes and mind,
The wondrous things which they hehold,
