"And it shall be the duty of every minister of any church, either by standing directions, or from time to time, to appoint the portions of Psalms which are to be sung.
"And further, it shall be the duty of every minister, with such assistance as he can obtain from persons skilled in music, to give order concerning the tunes to be sung at any time in his church; and especially, it shall be his duty to suppress all light and unseemly music, and all indecency and irrever ence in the performance, by which vain and ungodly persons profane the service of the Sanctuary."
SELECTED FROM THE PSALMS OF DAVID.
From the i. Psalm of David.
OW blest is he, who ne'er consents
H By ill advice to walk,
Nor stands in sinners' ways, nor sits Where men profanely talk;
2 But makes the perfect law of GoD His business and delight;
Devoutly reads therein by day,
And meditates by night.
15 Appease the Son with due respect,
6 If but in part his anger rise,
PSALM 3. (C. M.)
From the iii. Psalm of David.
3 Like some fair tree, which, fed by THOU, gracious GOD, art my de
With timely fruit does bend,
4 Ungodly men, and their attempts,
Like chaff before the wind.
5 Their guilt shall strike the wicked dumb
Before their Judge's face:
6 For GoD approves the just man's ways;
To happiness they tend :
But sinners, and the paths they tread, Shall both in ruin end.
"The king that I ordain, Whose throne is fixed on Sion's hill, Shall there securely reign."
2 Attend, O earth, whilst I declare God's uncontroll'd decree,
Thou art my Son; this day, my heir, Have I begotten thee.
3" Ask, and receive thy full demands; Thine shall the heathen be; The utmost limit of the lands
Shall be possess'd by thee."
4 Learn then ye princes; and give ear, Ye judges of the earth:
Worship the LORD with holy fear:
On thee my hopes rely; [fence;
2 Since when soe'er, in my distress,
3 Guarded by him I lay me down
4 Salvation to the LORD belongs
His blessings he extends to all
From the iv. Psalm of David. YONSIDER that the righteous man
CIS GOD's peculiar choice;
And when to him I make my prayer,
2 Then stand in awe of his commands,
3 The sacrifice of righteousness
4 While worldly minds impatient grow
5 So shall my heart o'erflow with joy,
