O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness; let the whole earth stand in awe of him.

Tell it out among the heathen, that the Lord is King; that it is he who hath made the world so fast that it cannot be mov¬ ed; and that he shall judge the people righteously.

Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea make a noise, and all that therein is.

Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it; let all

For my days are consumed away like smoke; and my bones are burnt up as it were a firebrand.

I am become like a pelican in the wilderness, and like an owl that is in the desert.

I have watched, and am even as it were a bird of the night, that sitteth alone upon the house top.

My days are gone like a shadow, and I am withered like grass.

The children of thy servants shall continue; and their seed shall stand fast in thy sight.

Now unto the King eternal, &c.

Be honour and glory, &c.


PSALM 103.

PRAISE the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, praise his holy


Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits;

Who forgiveth all thy sin, and healeth all thine infirmities;

Who saveth thy life from destruction, and crowneth thee with mercy and loving kindness;

Who filleth the morning of thy life with good things, and reneweth thy youth like the eagle's.

The Lord executeth righteousness and judgment for all those who are oppressed.

He showed his ways unto Moses, his works unto the children of Israel.

The Lord is full of compassion and mercy, long suffering, and of great goodness.

He will not alway be chiding; neither keepeth he his anger for ever.

He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our wickednesses.

For as the heaven is high above the earth, so
