3 For thro' thy mighty works, O Lord,

Thou mak'st my heart rejoice: The thoughts of them shall make me glad,

And shout with cheerful voice.
4 How wondrous are thy works, O Lord !

How deep are thy decrees!
Whose winding tracks, in secret laid,

No foolish sinner sees.

PSALM XCIII. · L. M. 1 W ITH glory clad, with strength array'd,

The Lord, that o'er all nature reigns, The world's foundations strongly laid,

And the vast fabrick still sustains. 2 How surely stablish'd is thy throne,

Which shall no change or period see!
For thou, O Lord, and thou alone,

Art God from all eternity.
3 The floods, O Lord, lift up their voice,

And toss the troubled waves on high;
But God above can still their noise,

And make the angry sea comply. 4 Thy promise, Lord, is' ever sure;

And they that in thy house would dwell, That happy station to secure,

Must still in holiness excel.

68. PSALM XCIV. C. M. 1. PLESS'D is the man, whom thou, O Lord,

D In kindness dost chastise,
And by thy sacred rules to walk

Dost lovingly advise.
2 This man shall rest and safety find

In seasons of distress,
Whilst God prepares a pit for those

That stubbornly transgress.
3 For God will never from his saints

His favour wholly take;
His own possession and his flock

He never will forsake.
4 The world shall then confess thee just

In all that thou hast done;
And those that choose thy upright ways

Shall in those paths go on.
69. PSALM XCV. L. M.

For Sunday Morning.. . IN COME, loud anthems let us sing,

Loud thanks to our Almighty King; For we our voices high should raise

When our salvation's rock we praise. 2 Into his presence let us haste,

To thank him for his favours past;
To him address, in joyful songs,
The praise that to his name belongs.

3 For God, the Lord, enthron’d in state,

Is with unrivall’d glory great;
A king, superior far to all

Whom gods the heathen falsely call. 4 O let us to his courts repair,

And bow with adoration there;
Down on our knees devoutly all
Before the Lord our Maker fall.

70. PSALM XCVII. L. M. 1 TEHOVAH reigns, let all the earth

O In his just government rejoice;
Let all the isles, with sacred mirth,

In his applause unite their voice. 2 Darkness and clouds of awful shade

His dazzling glory shroud in state;
Justice and Truth his guards are made,

And, fix'd by his pavilion, wait.
3 You, who to serve this Lord' aspire,

Abhor what's ill, and truth esteem; He'll keep his servants' souls entire,

And them from wicked hands redeem. 4 Rejoice, ye righteous, in the Lord :

Memorials of his holiness
Deep in your faithful breasts record,

And with your thankful tongues confess.

71. PSALM XCVIII. c. M.

Advent.
I SING to the Lord a new-made song,

Who wondrous things has done;
With his right hand and holy arm

The conquest he has won. 2 The Lord has through the astonish'd world

Display'd his saving might,
And made his righteous acts appear

In all the heathens' sight.
3 Let, therefore, earth's inhabitants

Their cheerful voices raise, And all with universal joy

Resound their Maker's praise. 4 To welcome down the world's great Judge,

Who does with justice come, And with impartial equity

Both to reward and doom. 72. PSALM C. (0.v.) L. M. 1 ALL people that on earth do dwell,

A Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice : Him serve with fear, his praise forth tell,

Come ye before him and rejoice, 2 The Lord ye know is God indeed;

Without our aid he did us make; We are his flock, he doth us feed, - And for his sheep he doth us take.

3 O enter then his gates with praise,

Approach with joy his courts unto;
Praise, laud, and bless his name always;

For it is seemly so to do.
4 For why? The Lord our God is good,

His mercy is for ever sure;
His truth at all times firmly stood,

And shall from age to age endure. 13.

PSALM C. L. M. 1 W ITH one consent let all the earth

To God their cheerful voices raise ; Glad homage pay with awful mirth,

And sing before him songs of praise.... 2 Convinc'd that he is God alone,

From whom both we and all proceed; We, whom he chooses for his own,

The flock that he vouchsafes to feed.. 3 O enter then his temple gate,

Thence to his courts devoutly press;
And still your grateful hymns repeat,

And still his name with praises bless. 4 For he's the Lord, supremely good;

His mercy is for ever sure;
His truth, which always firmly stood,

To endless ages shall endure.
