PSALMS.

[ocr errors]

PSALM 1.
The righteous and the wicked contrasted.
1 HOW blest is he who ne'er consents

By ill advice to walk;
Nor stands in sinners' ways, nor sits

Where men profanely talk.
2 But makes the perfect law of God

His business and delight; Devoutly reads therein by day,

And meditates by night.
3 Like some fair tree, which, fed by streams,

With timely fruit doth bend,
He still shall flourish, and success

All his designs attend.
4 Not so the ungodly, they, alas !

No lasting root shall find;
For they are driven away like dust,

Or chaff before the wind.

PSALM 2

2.
Messiah's Exaltation.

PA 5*
I ATTEND, 0 earth, whilst I declare/KU!

God's uncontroll’d decree 32:15) Y IV
“ Thou art my son, this day my heir q I

“ Havo I begotten thee, yols no but

[ocr errors][merged small]

“ Ask and receive thy full demands;

66 Thine shall the heathen be; • The utmost limits of the lands

“Shall be possess'd by thee.”
Be wise, ye rulers of the earth,

Obey the anointed Lord ;
Adore the King of heavenly birth,

And tremble at his word.
With humble love address his throne;

For if he frown, ye die:
Those are secure, and those alone,

Who on his grace rely.

PSALM 3.

Confidence in God.
THOU, Lord, art my secure defence,

On thee my hopes rely;
Thou art my glory and my help

When any evil's nigh.
Guarded by thee, I laid me down

My sweet repose to take;
For I through thee securely sleep,

Through thee in safety wake.
Salvation to the Lord belongs,

He only can defend;
His blessing he extends to all

Who on his name depend.

PSALM 4.

For the divine favour.
HEAR me, O God, when near thy throne

My earnest cries ascend;
I plead thy righteousness alone,
And on thy grace depend.

Oft has that grace enlarg’d my heart,

Weigh'd down with anxious care;
Again thy mercy, Lord, impart,

Again regard my prayer.
While many wrapt in nature's night

For worldly good inquire,
O lift on me thy saving light!

'Tis all that I desire.
In peace I lay me down to sleep;

Thine arm shall stay my head;
Thine angel spread his tent, and keep

His watch around my bed.

PSALM 5. For the Lord's Day Morning. 1 LORD, in the morning thou shalt hear

My voice ascending high ;
To thee will I direct my prayer,
To thee lift

up
mine

eye.
2 Oft to thy house will I resort,

To taste thy mercies there;
I will frequent thy holy court,

And worship in thy fear.
3 O may thy Spirit guide my feet

In
ways

of truth and grace;
Make every path of duty straight

And plain before my face !
4 All they who love and fear thy name

Shall see their hopes fulfillid :
The mighty God will compass them

With favour as a shield.

PSALM 6.
The wrath of God deprecated.
1 IN tender mercy, not in wrath,

Rebuke us, gracious God!
Lest, if thy whole displeasure rise,

We fall beneath thy rod. 2 Touch'd by thy Spirit's quickening power,

Our load of guilt we feel;
The wounds thy Spirit hath unclos'd,

O let that Spirit heal !
3 Oppress'd with Satan's galling yoke,

Must we for ever mourn?
And wilt thou not at length, O God,

In pitying love return?
4 O come with speed, ere life expire,

And show thy power to save!
For who shall sing thy name in death,

Or praise thee in the grave ?
5 Why should our souls distrust thy grace,

Or yield to dread despair ?
Thou wilt fulfil thy promis'd word,

And grant us all our prayer.

PSALM 8. Version 1. The wonders of creation and redemption. 1 O THOU, to whom all creatures bow

Within this earthly frame,
Through all the world how great art tho'ı!

How glorious is thy name ! 2 When heaven, thy beauteous work on high,

Employs my wondering sight,
The moon that nightly rules

the sky,
With stars of feebler light;
