ANSWER me when I call,
And set at large : now spare,
Great ones, how long will ye
To love, to seek, to prize
Yet know the Lord hath chose,
Jehovah from on high
Be awed, and do not sin ;
Offer the offerings just
Many there be that say
Who yet will show us good ?”
On us lift up the light,
Into my heart more joy
And from their plenteous grounds
In peace at once will I
As in a rocky cell
40 PSALM V.
August 12, 1653.
JEHOVAH, to my words give ear,
My meditation weigh;
Shalt in the morning hear;
In wickedness delight;
Thou hat'st; and them unblest
Thy numerous mercies, go
Lead me, because of those
No word is firm or sooth;
Their joy, while thou from blame
To bless the just man still :
40 PSALM VI.
August 13, 1653.
LORD, in thy anger do not reprehend me,
Nor in thy hot displeasure me correct;
Pity me, Lord, for I am much deject,
Are troubled ; yea, my soul is troubled sore ;
Who in the grave can celebrate thy praise ?
Wearied I am with sighing out my days; Nightly my couch I make a kind of sea ; My bed I water with my tears ; mine eye
Through grief consumes, is waxen old and dark
l' the midst of all mine enemies that mark. Depart, all ye that work iniquity, Depart from me ; for the voice of my weeping
The Lord hath heard ; the Lord hath heard my prayer ;
My supplication with acceptance fair
With much confusion; then, grown red with shame,
They shall return in haste the way they came, And in a moment shall be quite abashed.

Upon the words of Chush the Benjamite against him.
LORD, my God, to thee I fly;
If the unjust will not forbear,
O JEHOVAH our Lord, how wondrous great
And glorious is thy name through all the earth, So as above the heavens thy praise to set !
Out of the tender mouths of latest bearth,
Hast founded strength, because of all thy foes,
That bends his rage thy providence to oppose.
When I behold thy heavens, thy fingers’ art,
The moon and stars, which thou so bright hast set In the pure firmament, then saith my heart,
Oh, what is man that thou rememberest yet
That him thou visit'st, and of him art found ?
With honour and with state thou hast him crowned.
