PSALM XXXVI. c. M.
(From “ The Spirit of the Psalms.") 1 WIDE VIDE as the glorious arch of heav'n
Thy mercy, Lord, expands; Firm as the mountains' solid base
Thy truth unshaken stands. 2 Thy judgments, like th’unfathom'd deep,
Our feeble march defy;
Affords a rich supply:
Beneath thy shelt'ring wing, And draughts of purest
pleasure drain From life's eternal spring. 4 They, walking in the Gospel's light,
So richly shed abroad, Advance, till perfect day reveals The glory of the Lord.
PSALM XLI. L. M.; D.
(From “ The Spirit of the Psalms.") 1 HOW
OW blest are they who daily prove,
By acts of charity and love,
Sweet peace attend their parting breath. 2 When, summon'd from the silent tomb,
Th' assembled world await their doom,
These shall behold their Saviour's face Beaming with smiles of heav'nly grace, And from His lips their raptur'd ear
Shall this, their gracious sentence, hear“Come, O ye blessed of the Lord I Come, and receive your bright reward!”
PSALM XLV. P. M.
(From “ The Spirit of the Psalms.")
Prepare we now to sing
Thy praise, Almighty King;
Redeem'd the human race ;
Breathe words of truth and grace. 2 In Majesty transcendent,
Gird on Thy conqu’ring sword;
Ride on, Incarnate Word :
To glory and renown;
Be ev'ry foe o'erthrown.
Eternally the same,
To Thy Almighty Name.
Thy Church on earth behold,
In raiment wrought with gold :
4 And let each Gentile Nation
Come gladly in her train,
And join her grateful strain.
Awake the trembling string,
The ransom'd world shall sing.
PSALM LI. Version 1. 1 10
THOU that hear'st the mourner's cry,
Though all my sins before thee lie, Behold them not with angry look,
But blot their record from thy book. 2 Create my nature pure within,
And make my soul to loathe its sin:
Nor hide thy presence from my heart. 3 We cannot live without thy light,
Cast out and banish'd from thy sight:
PSALM LI. Version 2.
Fix'd in my birth, remains within,
Deep in pollution and disgrace.
Thy Laws demand a perfect heart:
3 O Saviour ! wash my sins away;
Redeemer ! thy great power display ;
And plant thine image in its place. 4 O let Thy Spirit to my heart
Once more its quick’ning aid impart;
PSALM LI. Version 3. L.M.
His help and comfort still afford;
To plead the merits of thy Son.
Is all the sacrifice we bring :
A broken heart for sacrifice.
And own thy dreadful sentence just :
And save the soul condemn'd to die! 4 So shall thy love inspire our tongue,
Salvation shall be all our song;
PSALM LIII. L. M.
Cast on the sons of men his eye,
2 He look’d; but yet not one he saw,
Who fear'd his Name, who kept his Law; Each, led from wisdom's path astray, Pursu'd the tenor of his
Look down again with pitying eye,
There let Thy mercy more abound. 4 O look! and to our longing eyes
Bid Thou the wish'd redemption rise:
PSALM LVI. 6 EIGHTS.
(From “ The Spirit of the Psalms.") 1 JOIN, all ye servants of the Lord,
To praise Him for his Sacred WordThat Word, like manna sent from heav'n, To all who seek it freely giv'n; Its promises dur fears remove,
And fill our hearts with joy and love. 2 It tells us, though oppress'd with cares,
The God of Mercy hears our prayers; Tho' steep and rough th' appointed way, His mighty arm shall be our stay; Though daily foes assail our peace,
His power shall bid their malice cease. 3 It tells Who first inspir'd our breath,
Whose blood redeem'd our souls from death:
