PSALM 2. I ATTEND, O earth, whilst I declare
A God's uncontrould decree ; 6. Thou art my son, this day my heir
“ Have I begotten thee. 2 - Ask and receive thy full demands ;
66 Thine shall the heathen be ; 66 The utmost limits of the land
“ Shall be possess'd by thee." 3 Appease the Son with due respect,
Your timely homage pay ; Lest he revenge the bold neglect,
Incens'd by your delay.
Who can endure the flame?
Psalm 4. 1 STAND ye in awe of God's commands,
Flee ev'ry thing that's ill; Commune in private with your hearts,
And bend them to his will. 2 The place of other sacrifice
Let righteousness supply ;
On God alone rely.
More prosp'rous times to see,
Still let the glories of thy face
Shine brightly, Lord, on me. 4 To Father, Son, and Holy-Ghost,
The God whom we adore, Be glory; as it was, is now, And shall be evermore.
Psalm 5. 1 I ORD, hear the voice of my complaint,
Accept my secret pray'r ; To thee alone, my King, my God,
Will I for help repair. 2 Thou in the morn my voice shalt hear,
And with the dawning day To thee devoutly I'll look up,
To thee devoutly pray.
With shouts their joy proclaim ;
And all that love thy name.
His blessings will extend,
Within this earthly frame, Through all the world how great art thou ! How glorious is thy name!
2 When heav'n, thy beauteous work on high,
Employs my wand'ring sight ;
With stars of feebler light; 3 What's man, (say I,) that, Lord, thou loy'st
To keep him in thy mind ?
To them so wond'rous kind ?
To thy celestial train ; Ordaind with dignity and state
O’er all thy works to reign. 5 They jointly own his pow'rful sway;
The beasts that prey or graze; The bird that wings its airy way;
The fish that cuts the seas.
Within this earthly frame,
Psalm 8. OLD VERSION. 10 God our Lord, how wonderful
Are thy works ev'ry where! Thy fame surmounts in dignity
The highest heav'ns that are.
Thou wilt confound thy foes;
Thy graces they disclose.
3 And when I see the heav'ns above,
The work of thine own hand,
In order as they stand;
Tak’st such abundant care !
1 I will my heart prepare; To all the listning world thy works,
Thy wond'rous works, declare. 2 The thought of them shall to my soul
Exalted pleasure bring; Whilst to 'thy name, 0 thou most high,.;
Triumphant praise I sing. 3 All those who have his goodness prov'd,
Will in his truth confide;
That on his help rely’d. 4 Sing praises, therefore, to the Lord is
From Sion, his abode; Proclaim his deeds, till all the world . ; Confess no other God.
PSALM 15. 1 I ORD, who's the happy man that may To thy blest courts repair?
Not, stranger-like, to visit them, . .
But to inhabit there?
By rules of virtue moves ;
The thing his heart disproves. 3 Who never did a slander forge
His neighbour's fame to wound; Nor hearken to a false report
Nor malice whisper'd round.
Hath ever firmly stood;
He makes his promise good.
Has happiness insur'd, When earth's foundation shakes, shall stand, By Providence secur'd.
: PSALM 16. 1 M Y soul shall ever bless the Lord,
Whose precepts give me light, And private counsel still afford
In sorrow's dismal night.
To his all-seeing eye;
Because he still is nigh.
