4 For benefits each day bestow'd, .
Be daily his great name ador'd; Who is our Saviour and our God,
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 TN thee I put my stedfast trust,
1 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.
My tender infant days;
To sing thy constant praise.
When I with age decay,
My vigour fades away. 54. PSALM LXXII. C. M.
In Seed time. 1 OF useful grain, through all the land,
U Great plenty shall appear;
A mighty crop shall bear.
A rattling noise shall yield;
For plenty with the field.
Through endless years shall run;
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 W 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;
Thy vengeance shall destroy them all. 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.
11 Withdrawn his favour quite ?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;
The wonders of his might;
My tongue shall them recite. 57. PSALM LXXVIII. C. M. 1 LTEAR, O my people! to my law
I Devout attention lend! Let the instruction of my mouth
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 H OW long wilt thou be angry, Lord ?
II 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;
From age to age proclaim.
