PSALM III. L. M.
GOD! how constant is thy love !

Thy gifts are ev'ry ev’ning new;
And morning mercies from above
Gently distil, like early dew.
2 Thou spread'st the curtain of the night,
Great Guardian of our sleeping hours ;
Thy sov'reign word restores the light,

And quickens all our slumb'ring powers. 3 Thine arm sustain'd us while we slept,

Else had our eyelids closed in death;
Our life in safety still is kept,

And still we draw our wonted breath. 4 That life we yield to thy command;

To Thee we consecrate our days;
Perpetual blessings from thy hand
Demand perpetual songs of praise.

PSALM IV. c. M. 1 TN vain the thoughtless world inquires,

I Forgetful of their God,
Who will supply their vain desires,

Or shew them earthly good.
2 Through the wide compass of the earth

Their restless wishes rove,
In search of honour, wealth, and mirth,

The idols of their love,
