PSALM CII. C. M. 1 W HEN I pour out my soul in pray'r,

Do thou, O Lord, attend; To thy eternal throne of grace

Let my sad cry ascend. 2 O hide not thou thy glorious face

In times of deep distress; Inoline thine ear, and when I call,

My sorrows soon redress.
3 My days, just hast'ning to their end,

Are like an evining shade;
My beauty does, like wither'd grass,

With waning lustre fade.
4 But thy eternal state, O Lord,

No length of time shall waste;
The mem’ry of thy wond'rous works

From age to age shall last. 175. PSALM CII. C. M.

A Missionary Psalm. 1 THE name and glory of the Lord

All heathen kings shall fear; When he shall Sion build again,

And in full state appear.
2 When he regards the poor's request,

Nor slights their earnest pray’r;
Our sóns, for this recorded grace,

Shall his just praise declare.

3 For God, from his abode on high,

His gracious beams display'd :
The Lord from heaven, his lofty throne,

Has all the earth surveyed.
4 He listen'd to the captives' moans,

He heard their mournful cry,
And freed by his resistless pow'r

The wretches doom'd to die..
5 That they in Sion, where he dwells,

Might celebrate his fame,
And through the holy city sing

Loud praises to his name. 76. PSALM CIII. L. M. 1 THE Lord abounds with tender love,

And unexampled acts of grace;
His waken'd wrath does slowly move,

His willing mercy flows apace.
2 God will not always harshly chide,

But with his anger quickly part ;
And loves his punishments to guide

More by his love than our desert. 3 As high as heav'n its arch extends

Above this little spot of clay,
So much his boundless love transcends

The small respects that we can pay.

4 As far as 'tis from east to west,

So far has he our sins remov’d,
Who with a father's tender breast

Has such as fear'd him always lov’d. 5 Let ev'ry creature jointly bless

The mighty Lord : and thou, my heart, With grateful joy thy thanks express,

And in this concert bear thy part. 177. PSALM CV. C. M. 10RENDER thanks, and bless the Lord;

Invoke his sacred name;
Acquaint the nations with his deeds,

His matchless deeds proclaim. 2 Sing to his praise, in lofty hymns

His wond'rous works rehearse;
Make them the theme of your discourse,

And subject of your verse,
3 Rejoice in his almighty name,

Alone to be ador'd;
And let their heart o’erflow with joyi

That humbly seek the Lord.
4 Seek ye the Lord, his saving strength

Devoutly still implore;
And, where he's ever present, seek

His face for evermore.

78. PSALM CVII. L. M.

For an Unfruitful Harvest. 1 A FRUITFUL land, where streams abound,

God's just revenge, if people sin, Will turn to dry and barren ground,

To punish those that dwell therein. 2 The parch'd and desert heath he makes • To flow with streams and springing wells, Which for his lot the hungry takes,

And in strong cities safely dwells.
3 He sows the field, the vineyard plants,

Which gratefully his toil repay;
Nor can, whilst God his blessing grants,

His fruitful seed or stock decay. 4 But when his sins Heav'n's wrath provoke,

His health and substance fade away; He feel's th' oppressor's galling yoke,

And is of grief the wretched prey.
5 Then sinners shall have nought to say,

The just a grateful joy shall shew;
The wise these strange events shall weigh,

And thence God's goodness fully know. 79. PSALM CXIII. (6. 8.)

God's Omnipotence.
1 VE saints and servants of the Lord,

I The triumphs of his name record;
His sacred name for ever bless.

4. As far as 'tis from east to west,

So far has he our sins remov’d,
Who with a father's tender breast

Has such as fear'd him always lov'd. 5 Let ev'ry creature jointly bless

The mighty Lord: and thou, my heart,
With grateful joy thy thanks express,
And in this concert bear thy part.

PSALM CV. C. M.
RENDER thanks, and bless the Lord;

Invoke his sacred name;
Acquaint the nations with his deeds,

His matchless deeds proclaim. 2 Sing to his praise, in lofty hymns

His wond'rous works rehearse;
Make them the theme of your discourse,

And subject of your verse,
3 Rejoice in his almighty name,

Alone to be ador'd;
And let their heart o'erflow with joy

That humbly seek the Lord.
4 Seek r the Lord, his saving strength

evout till implore ;

here In's ever present, seek
face for levermore.
