4 For benefits each day bestow'd,
Be daily his great name ador’d;
Of life and death the sov'reign Lord. 52. PSALM LXIX. L. M.
In time of Private Distress. 1 SAVE me, o God, from waves that roll
, And press to overwhelm my soul : With painful steps in mire I tread,
And deluges o'erflow my head. 2 With restless cries my spirits faint,
My voice is hoarse with long complaint ; My sight decays with tedious pain,
Whilst for my God I wait in vain. 3 But, Lord, to thee I will repair
For help, with humble timely pray'r; Relieve me from thy mercy's store,
Display thy truth's preserving pow'r, 4 Lord, hear the humble prayer I make,
For thy transcending goodness sake; Relieve thy supplicant once more
From thy abounding mercy's store. 53. PSALM LXXI. C. M.
For an Aged Person. 1 N thee I put my stedfast trust,
Defend me, Lord, from shame; Incline thine ear and save my soul,
For righteous is thy name.
2 Be thou my strong abiding place,
To which I may resort; 'Tis thy decree that keeps me safe ;
Thou art my rock and fort. 3 Thy constant care did safely guard
My tender infant days; Thou took'st me from my mother's womb
To sing thy constant praise.
When I with age decay,
My vigour fades away.
In Seed time,
F useful grain, through all the land,
Great plenty shall appear ;
A mighty crop shall bear.
A rattling noise shall yield;
For plenty with the field.
Through endless years shall run; His spotless fame shall shine as bright
And lasting as the sun.
4 In him the nations of the world
Shall be completely bless'd, And his unbounded happiness
By ev'ry tongue confess’d.
And ever bless his name;
Their glad assent proclaim.
55. PSALM LXXIII. L. M. 1 HOM then in heav'n, but God alone,
Have I, whose favour I require ? Throughout the spacious earth there's none,
That I, O God, save thee, desire. 2 My trembling flesh and aching heart
May often fail to succour me,
And my eternal portion be.
Shall into sudden ruin fall ; If after other gods they rove,
Thy vengeance shall destroy them all. 4 But as for me, 'tis good and just
That I should still to God repair;
And will his wondrous works declare.
56. PSALM LXXVII. C. M
In time of Doubt and Despair.
Withdrawn his favour quite ?
Retir'd to endless night ?
Its wonted aids to bring ?
His mercy's healing spring ?
But I'll my fears disband;
years of his right hand.
The wonders of his might;
PSALM LXXVIII. C. M.
Devout attention lend !
Deep in your hearts descend; 2 That generations yet to come
Should to their unborn heirs Religiously transmit the same,
And they again to theirs.
3 To teach them that in God alone
Their hope securely stands;
But keep his just commands. 4 Lest, like their fathers, they might prove
A stiff rebellious race,
Unsteadfast in his grace.
58. PSALM LXXIX. C. M. 1 TOW long wilt thou be angry,
Must we for ever mourn ?
Like fire for ever burn.
But speedily prevent
Almost with sorrow spent.
And free our souls from blame;
Exalt thy glorious name.
Shall ever praise thy name; And with glad hearts our grateful thanks
From age to age proclaim.
