Then shall my song, with praise inspir'd,
To thee, my God, ascend, Who to thy servant in distress,
Such bounty didst extend.
Psalm 15. C. M.
Verse 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,7.
To thy blest courts repair ?
like to visit them,
By rules of virtue moves ;
The thing his heart disproves.
His neighbour's fame to wound;
By malice whisper'd round.
Can treat with just neglect,
Has ever firmly stood ;
Will make his promise good,
Has happiness insur'd,
By Providence secur'd.
Psalm 16. C. M.
Verse 5, 6, 8, 9.
Where God is truly known;
"Tis he supports my throne.
My happy portion lies ;
All other lands outvies.
soul shall bless the Lord, Whose precepts give nje light, And private counsel still afford
In sorrow's dismal night,
To his all-seeing eye;
Because he still is nigh,
My glory does rejoice;
Wak'd by his pow'rful voice.
My firm affection, Lord, to thee; For thou hast always been a rock,
A fortress and defence to me,
Thou my deliv'rer art, my God,
My trust is in thy mighty pow'r; Thou art my shield from foes abroad,
At home my safe-guard and my tow'r. To thee I'll still address my pray'r,
To whom all praise we justly owe; So shall I, by thy watchful care,
Be guarded from my treach'rous foe, To heav'n I made my mournful pray'r,
To God address'd my humble moan, Who graciously inclip'd bis ear,
And heard me from his lofty throne.
Verse 1 to 4. THE heav'ns declare thy glory, Lord,
Which that alone can fill;
Their great Creator's skill.
Fresh beams of kņowledge brings; From darkest night's successive rounds
Divine instruction springs.
Or region is confin'd;
Alike by all mankind.
Through earth's extent display, Whose bright contents the circling sun
Does round the world convey.
Psalm 23. C. M.
Vouchsafe’s to be my guide;
My wants are all supply'd.
In tender grass he makes me feed,
And gently there repose : And leads me to cool shades, and where
Refreshing water flows.
He does my wand'ring soul reclaim,
And to his endless praise, Instruct with humble zeal to walk
In his most righteous ways.
1 pass the gloomy vale of death,
From fear and danger free;
Defend and comfort me.
In presence of my spiteful foes
He does my table spread ; He crowns my cup with cheerful wine, With oil anoints my
Since God doth thus his wond'rous love
Through all my life extend, That life to him I will devote,
And in his temple spend.
Verse 1 to 5.
The Lord's her fulness is ;
By sov'reign right are his.
And his Almighty hand,
The stable fabric stand.
One chosen seat design'd;
Deserv'd admittance find ? The man whose bands and heart are pure,
Whose thoughts from pride are free;
To gainful perjury.
Shall show'r his blessings down, Whom God, his Saviour, shall vouclısafe
With righteousness to crown.
TO God, in whom I trust,
I lift my heart and voice; o lei
me not be put to shame Nor let my foes rejoice.
