PSALMS.

For the Lord's Day.
HYMN I. C. M.

L et Christian hearts with joy unite

To bless this holy day,
When Jesus rose from death to light,

And led to heav'n the way.

Supported by his truth divine,

We death's dread power defy : Our bodies rest in hope to shine

In realms beyond the sky.

This cheers our fainting souls, ev'n when

We feel affliction's roda Creation made us sons of Men,

Redemption, sous of God.

O let us then this day reyere,

And in his courts attend;
With pious awe his precepts hear,

And at his altar bend.

Let ev'ry sinful care retire,

Each thought be fix'd above; Whilst meditation fans the fire

Of pure celestial love.
