PSALM 103.

(c. M. TRURO.)

God's goodness in the salvation of man. 1 COME, let us bless the Lord our God,

And all his works proclaim;
Let all our souls, with all their might,

Conspire to praise his name.
2 Far as the heaven above the earth

Its lofty arch extends,
So far his love to sinful man

Our utmost thought transcends. 3 Yea, far as east from west is placed,

He all our guilt removes ;
And spares us, as a

father

spares
The children whom he loves.
4 Oh ! let us then resume the theme,

And all his works proclaim;
Let all our souls, with all their right,

Conspire to praise his name.

PSALM 104.

(P. M. HANOVER.)

The glory, wisdom, and power of God, 1 My soul, praise the Lord, Speak good of his

name,
With majesty cloth'd,

With honour and might;
O Lord ! let our praises

Thy greatness proclaim';
Whose throne is in heaven';
Whose robe is the light.

2 As curtains the sky

Thou spreadest out wide;
Within the great deep

Thy chambers retire;
The clouds are thy chariots ;

On wings thou dost ride;
Thine angels are spirits ;

Thy ministers fire. & How manifold, Lord,

The works Thou hast wrought !
In earth and in heaven,

Thy glory we see:
Thy wisdom and riches

Surpass all our thought;
Such wisdom as only

Belongeth to Thee. 4 By angels in heaven,

Of every degree, And saints upon earth,

All praise be address'd, (As it has been, now is,

And always shall be,) To God in three Persons,

One God ever, blest.

Psalm 106.
(L. M. ST. ANDREWS.)

God's blessing is on his people.
1 LET songs of praise to God ascend,

Whose love nor measure knows nor end;
But oh! what tongue, in equal lay,
His acts can speak, his grace display?

2 Not earth and heaven combined can raise

A tribute worthy all his praise;
Yet let the ransom'd of the Lord

The wonders of his name record.
3 Blessed are they who know his will,

And strive his precepts to fulfil ;
Whose feet in swift obedience move,

Borne on the wings of faith and love. 4 With these, O Lord! Thy chosen race,

Make us partakers of thy grace;
Let all thy goodness round us rise,

And pass before our wond'ring eyes. 5 Thus while thy mercy on our heads

The fulness of its blessings sheds,
Our songs on earth with theirs shall blend,
Till purer praise in heaven ascend.

Psalm 107.
(c. M. LIVERPOOL.)

God, the protector of his serdants.
1 How are thy servants bless'd, O Lord !

How sure is their defence !
Eternal wisdom is their guide;

Their help omnipotence.
2 In foreign realms, and lands remote,

Supported by thy care,
Through burning climes they pass unhurt,

And breathe the tainted air.
3 When by the dreadful tempest borne

High on the broken wave,

They find Thee neither slow to hear,

Nor impotent to save,
4 The storm is laid, the winds retire,

Obedient to thy will ;
The sea, which roars at thy command,

At thy command is still.
5 In midst of dangers, fears, and deaths,

May we thy name adore;
And praise Thee for thy mercies past,

And trust thy grace for more!
6 Grant that our life, while life remains,

Thy sacrifice may be ; That death, when death shall closeour days,

May join our souls to Thee.

PSALM 107.

(c. M. EGYPT.) God the unerring guide of his people. v. 7. 1 When Israel were from Egypt brought,

Saved by Jehovah's hand, They went through wanderings far about

To Canaan's promised land.
2 They often murmur'd by the way,

Because they judged by sight;
But were at length constrain'd to say

The Lord had led them right. 3 The way was right their hearts to prove,

To make God's glories known;
And shew his wisdom, power and love,

Engaged to save his own.

4 So now the Christian's winding path

Through hourly danger lies; Though dark to sense, 'tis right to faith,

And leads him to the skies.

PSALM 115.
(C. M. HEPHZIBAH.)

The salvation of man wholly of grace. v. l. 1 Not unto us, but to thy name,

Great God! be glory given:
Thy praise shall be on earth begun,

And carried on in heaven.
2 Thy wisdom, moved by boundless love,

Contrived the wondrous plan
Of rescuing, from eternal death,

The apostate race of man.
3 By grace our souls at first were callid;

By grace we're thus far come;
And grace alone must still support,

And bear us safely homé. 4 Should wethrough grace at length be found

Among thy saints above,
With them, in endless songs, we'll sing

The triumphs of thy love.
5 Yet let us aim, while here below,

Thy mercy to display:
And own, at least, the debt we owe,

Although we cannot pay.
6 To Thee, O God! to Thee alone

Be all the glory given;
For ’tis of grace, from first to last,

That sinners enter heaven.
