6 Thy feet, dear SAVIOUR! we'll embrace,
(The kindling wrath Thy love restrains) Trust in the smiles of Jesu's face,
While o'er the world MESSIAH reigns.
A Morning Psalm. iO LORD! how many are my foes,
In this weak state of flesh and blood ! My peace they daily discompose,
But my defence and hope is God. 2 Tir’d with the burdens of the day, i
To Thee I rais’d my ev'ning cry ;
And Thine Almighty help was nigh. 3 Supported by Thine heav'nly aid,
i laid me down, and slept secure : Not death shall make my heart afraid,
Though I should wake and rise no more, 4 But God sustain'd me all the night;
Salvation doth to God belong : He rais'd my head to see the light, And made His praise my morning song.
An Evening Psalm. i To what rich and heav'nly stores .
Doth the LORD His people lead!
All the good I daily need :
2 With the day's new mercies crown'd,
Bid this night Thy face to shine!
Who for earthly comforts pine,-
Than when earthly blessings flow. 3 LORD! on me the gracious beams
Of Thy heav'nly presence shed !
Sweet repose shall soothe my bed. Now these blessings, LORD! dispense; Thou, alone, art my defence.
For the Morning of the Sabbath. i LORD, in the morning Thou shalt hear
My voice ascending high ;
To Thee lift up mine eye;
To plead for all His saints,
Our songs and our complaints.
The wicked shall not stand ; Sinners shall ne'er be Thy delight,
Nor dwell at Thy right hand. 4. But to Thy house will I resort,
To taste Thy mercies there;
And worship in Thy fear.
5 may Thy SPIRIT guide my feet
In ways of righteousness! Make ev'ry path of duty straight, And plain before my face.
Psalm VI. Pleading for Mercy.—On Despair. IN mercy, not in wrath, rebuke
Thy feeble worm, my God! My spirit dreads Thy angry look,
And trembles at Thy rod. 2 Have mercy, LORD, for I am weak;
Regard my heavy groans;
And heal my broken bones ! 3 By day, my busy beating head
Is filld with anxious fears ;
I weep a flood of tears.
Mine eyes grow dull with grief; How long, my Lord, ere Thou return,
And bring my soul relief ? 5 Satan, my cruel, envious foe,
Insults me in my pain ; He smiles to see me brought so low,
And tells me hope is vain.. 6 But hence, thou enemy, depart!
Nor tempt me to despair; My Saviour comes to cheer my heart,
The LORD has heard my prayer.
The Creator's glory.---The Saviour's condescension.
1 O THOU, to whom all creatures bow
Within this earthly frame,
How glorious is Thy Name!
2 When I behold Thy works on high,
The moon that rules the night,
Those moving worlds of light;
- 3 LORD, what is man, or all his race,
Who dwells so far below;
And love his nature so ?
4 That Thine eternal Son should bear
To take a mortal form,
To save a dying worm?
5 Let Him be crown'd with majesty
Who bow'd His head to death;
By all things that have breath.
5 Jesus, our LORD, how wondrous great
Is Thine exalted name!
Praise.—God a Refuge to believers. iTo celebrate Thy praise, O LORD,
I will my heart prepare;
Thy wondrous works, declare.
Exalted pleasure bring;
Triumphant praise I sing. . 3 GoD is a constant, sure defence,
Against oppressing rage :
In our behalf engage.
Will'in His truth confide;
That on His help rely'd.
From Sion, His abode,
Confess no other God.
1 THE LORD hath both a temple here,
And righteous throne above,
And how their counsels move,
