PREFACE TO THE FIFTH EDITION.

The present Selection was originally compiled for the use of St. Michael's Church, in Cambridge; but having been since adopted in many other Churches, the title-page is now altered to one of a more general character.

In this edition also other improvements are introduced. Besides the addition of an Index of Subjects, (for the peculiarity of the arrangement supersedes the necessity of an Index of Scriptures,) the metre of each Psalm or Hymn is marked by its initial letters; the long, common, and short metres being distinguished by L. M. C. M. and S.M., and all the rest by P. M. Peculiar Metre. But the peculiar metres, being very numerous, are farther distinguished either by the name of some popular tune to which they are adapted, or by the number in the Old Version of Psalms to which they correspond, and which are generally known, viz. the 104th, 113th, and 148th.

Cambridge, November, 1830.

PSA L M S.

PSALM 1. (L. M.)
1 HAPPY the man, whose cautious feet

Shun the broad way that sinners go;
Who hates the place where atheists meet,

And fears to talk as scoffers do.
2 He loves t'employ his morning-light

Among the statates of the Lord;
And spends the wakeful hours of night,

With pleasure pond'ring o'er his word. 3 He, like a plant by gentle streams,

Shall flourish in immortal green;
And heav'n will shine with kindest beams

On every work his hands begin.
4. But sinners find their counsels crost,

As chaff before the tempest flies;
So shall their hopes be blown and lost,

When the last trumpet shakes the skies. 5 In vain the rebel seeks to stand

In judgement with the pious race:
The dreadful Judge, with stern command,

Divides him to a diff'rent place: 6 “Straight is the way my saints have trod;

“I bless'd the path, and drew it plain : “But you would choose the crooked road, • And down it leads to endless pain."
