And speaks it with his tongue.
Who no malicious slander spreads,

This swells my heart with grateful joy,

My tongue exults in praise;
In peace l'll take my last repose,

And hope shall close my days.
For in the silent realm of death

My soul thou wilt not leave, Nor let corruption seize thy son

Within the gloomy grave.
To me the path of endless life,

Thy mercy will display ;
Thy presence boundless bliss attends,
And joys which ne'er decay.

PSALM XIX. C. M.
THE heav'ns Jehovah's pow'r confèss,

The skies his deeds proclaim;.. Day tells the glorious truth to day,

And, night to night the same. In ev'ry nation, ev'ry clime,

Their awful voice is known, Even in earth's remotest bounds,

Their solemn tidings own. All perfect is the law of God,

And inward strength supplies ; His word unerring truth displays,

And makes the simple wise. The statutes of the Lord are just,

And cheer the drooping heart; His laws are pure from ev'ry stain,

And light and life impart.

By them thy servant is forewarn'd

The snares of vice to shun;
And by their dictates well observ’d,
A prize divine is won.

Y faithful shepherd is the Lord,... V My wants are all supply'd: In fertile meads he gives me rest, sed reis?

Where peaceful waters glide. His

He kindly cheers. my fainting soul,

Recalls me when I roam,
In righteous paths directs my steps,

And gently guides me home.
Tho' thro' death's gloomy vale I pass,

My heart shall dread no ill:
For thou art there--thy rod and staff,

My soul with comfort fill.

Evin in the sight of every foe

My table thou shalt spread,
Thy bounty makes my cup run o'er,

Thy oil annoints my head.

Thro' ev'ry scene shall mercy smile,

And goodness me pursue; And in Jehovah's house will I

Each day his praise pursue..
