God's merciful Corrections.

, BEDFORD. c. M. HOW blest the man, whom thou, O Lord,

In kindness dost reprove;. And inwardly direct his soul

To walk by laws of love.
Repose and safety he shall find

In seasons of distress;
While God prepares a pit for those

Who stubbornly transgress.
Thou, Lord, wilt never from thy saints

Thy sure protection take;
Thine own possession and thy lot

Thou never wilt forsake.
Thus shall the world confess thee just,

And true in ev'ry deed;
And they who choose thy perfect ways,
Shall in those paths proceed.

PSALM Xcv.
Praise and Adoration to God.

PORTUGUESE. L. M.
O COME, loud anthems let us sing;
Give thanks to our almighty King:
For we our voices high should raise,
When our salvation's Rock we praise.
Into his presence let us haste, ...
To thank him for his favors past;
To him address, in joyful songs,
The praise that to his name belongs.
For God the Lord, enthron'd in state,
Is with unrivall'd glory great:
The strength of earth is in his hand,
He made the sea, and fixt the land."
O let us to his courts repair,
And bow with adoration there;
On bended knees devoutly fall,
And on the Lord our maker call.

Praise to God for his works and Grace.

ANNIVERSARY. P. M.
LET all the earth their voices raise,
To sing their choicest psalm of praise,

And bless Jehovah's sacred name:
His glory let the heathen know,
His wonders to the nations shew,

And all his mighty works proclaim.

O come the great the glorious hour,
When earth shall feel his sov'reign power,

And distant people all obey ;
Then shall the race of man confess :
The beauty of his holiness,

And in his courts his grace display.

PSALM XCVII.
The Majesty of God's Kingdom.

PORTUGAL. L. M.
JEHOVAH reigns, exalted high
O'er all the earth, o'er all the sky:
Though clouds and darkness veil his feet,
His dwelling is the mercy-seat.
O ye that love his holy name,
Hate ev'ry work of sin and shame:
He guards his chosen people well,
And saves them from the snares of hell.
Light for the upright man is sown,
Immortal light, and joys unknown;
Those glorious seeds shall spring, and rise,
And the bright harvest bless our eyes.
Rejoice, ye righteous, and record
The sacred honors of the Lord;
None but the soul that feels his grace ,
Can triumph in his holiness.

Praise for the Triumphs of Salvation.

OXFORD. C. M.
SING to the Lord a new-made song,

Who wondrous things hath done;
With his right hand, and holy arm,

The conquest he hath won.
The Lord hath through th' astonish'd world

Display'd his saving might;
And made his righteous acts appear

In all the heathen's sight.
Of Israel's house his love and truth

Have ever mindful been :
Wide earth's remotest parts the power

Of Israel's God have seen.
Let therefore earth's inhabitants

Their cheerful voices raise;
And all with universal joy,
Resound their Maker's praise.

PSALM XCIX.
Humility before God.

MOUNT EPHRAIM. S. M.
THE Lord is king alone,

Let all the nations fear;
Let sinners tremble at his throne,

And saints be humble there.
In meek submission own

Jehovah for your king :
And still before his righteous throne

Your prayers and praises bring.
For holy is the Lord;

Judgment and grace surround
His stedfast seat; and in his word

Eternal truth is found.
Great God! 'tis thine to spare,

To pity and forgive ;
O grant that we, in faith and prayer,

May seek thy face and live.

Exhortation to praise God.

Savoy.' L. M. ALL people that on earth do dwell, Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice : Him serve with fear, his praise forth tell, Come ye before him, and rejcice. The Lord, ye know, is God indeed; . Without our aid he did us make : We are his flock, he doth us feed; And for his sheep he doth us take. O enter then his gates with praise, Approach with joy his courts unto; Praise, laud, and bless his name always, For it is seemly so to do. For why? the Lord our God is good: His mercy is for ever sure: His truth at all times firmly stood, And shall from age to age endure. . . PSALM C. (SECOND Version.) Exhortation to praise God.

SAVOY. L. M. WITH one consent let all the earth To God their cheerful voices raise; Glad homage pay with awful mirth, And sing before him songs of praise. Convinc'd that he is God alone, From whom both we and all proceed; We, whom he chooses for his own, The flock that he youchsafes to feed. O enter then his temple gate; ii. Thence to his courts devoutly press; And still your grateful hymns repeat, And still his name with praises bless. For he's the Lord, supremely good; His mercy is for ever sure : His truth, which always firmly stood, s, To endless ages shall endure.

:: A Profession of Godliness.

MANCHESTER. C. M. LORD, when I lift my voice to thee,...

To whom all praise belongs,
Thy justice and thy love shall be

The subject of my songs.
Let wisdom o'er my heart preside,

To lead my footsteps right;
And make thy perfect law my guide ;

Thy service my delight.
From wicked men I will withdraw,

All sinful ways forsake;"
And only those who love thy law

For my companions take.
Lord, that I may not go astray,

Thy constant grace impart;
O guide me in thy holy way,
And fix my wand'ring heart.

PSALM CII. (PART 1.) -
For God's Tavor on the Church.

WINDSOR. C. M.
WHEN we pour out our souls in prayer,

Do thou, O Lord, attend;"""
To thine eternal throne of grace

Let our sad cries ascend.
Hide not from us thv. glorious face

In times of deep distress;
But bow thine ear; and, when we call,

Do thou our grief redress.
Arise, O God; on Sion look

With an unclouded face;
For now th' appointed time is come,

The promis'd day of grace.
Thou to the children of thy saints

Shalt lasting quiet give, Whose happy race, securely fixt,

Shall in thy presence live. com
