Psalm lvii. Miserere mei, Deus.

Tone 6. (1.) p. 11.

vou.

Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me,* for my soul { trusteth in thee: and under the shadow of thy wings shall be my refuge,* until this į tyran-ny be o-ver-past.

2 I will call unto the most { high God: even unto the God that shall perform the cause which I have in hand.

3 He shall { send from hea-ven: and save me from the reproof of Į him that would eat me up.

4 God shall send forth his { mercy and truth : my soul is a- { mong li-ons.

5 And I lie even among the children of men that are set on fire : whose teeth are spears and arrows,* and their ļ tongue a sharp sword.

6' (f) Set up thyself, O God, a-{ bove the hea-vens: and thy glory a- { bove all the earth.

7 They have laid a net for my feet,* and pressed { down my soul : they have digged a pit before me,* and are fallen into the midst of it themselves.

8 (f) My heart is fixed, O God, my { heart is fix-ed: I will { sing, and give praise.

PSALMS

9 (f) Awake up, my glory;* awake, { lute and harp: I myself will a- } wake right ear-ly.

10 (f) I will give thanks unto thee, O Lord, * a-mong the peo-ple : and I will sing unto thee a- {mong the na-tions.

11 (f) For the greatness of thy mercy reacheth unto the hea-vens : and thy { truth unto the clouds.

12 (f) Set up thyself, O God, a- {bove the heavens: and thy glory a- { bove all the earth.

I WILL give thanks unto the Lord with my whole { heart: secretly among the faithful,* and in the con-gre-ga-tion.

2 The works of the Lord are great : sought out of all { them that have pleasure there-in.

3 His work is worthy to be praised, and had in { -nour : and his righteousness en- { dureth for ev-er.

4 The merciful and gracious Lord hath so done his marvellous { works : that they ought to be } had in re-mem-brance.

Tone 5. A. (1.) p. 7.

5 He hath given meat unto them that fear him: he shall ever be mindful { of his co-ve-nant.

6 He hath shewed his people the power of his } works : that he may give them the heritage of the hea-then.

7 The works of his hands are verity and { judge-ment : all his com- { mand-ments are true.

8 They stand fast for ever and ev-er : and are done in { truth and e-qui-ty.

9 (1) He sent redemption unto his { peo-ple: he hath commanded his covenant for ever ;* holy and { reve-rend is his Name.

10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of } wis-dom: a good understanding have all they that do thereafter ;* the praise of it en- { dureth for

ev-er.

Praise the Lord, ye } ser-vants : 0 praise the Name of the Lord.

2 Blessed be the Name of the Lord: from this time { forth for ev-er-more.

3 (1) The Lord's Name is {prais-ed: from the rising up of the sun unto the go-ing down of the same.

4 (f) The Lord is high above all { hea-then : and his { glory a-bove the heavens.

5 Who is like unto the Lord our God,* that hath his dwelling so { high : and yet humbleth himself to behold the things that { are in heaven and earth.

6 He taketh up the simple out of the { dúst: and lifteth the poor out of the mire;

7 That he may set him with the prin-ces: even with the princes { of his peo-ple.

8 He maketh the barren woman to keep { house : and to be a joyful { mother of chil-dren.

PSALM cxiv. In exitu Israel.

Tone 5. A. (2.) p. 8. for

When Israel came out of ļ É-gypt: and the house of Jacob from among the strange peo-ple.

2 Judah was his { sanc-tuary: and Israel } his do-mi-ni-on.

3 The sea saw that, and { fled: Jor- } dan was driv-en back.

4 The mountains skipped like { rams: and the little { hills like young sheep.

,5 (e) What aileth thee, O thou sea, that thou } fléd-dest : and thou Jordan, that { thou wast driv-en back?

6 (f) Ye mountains, that ye skipped like { rams: and ye little { hills, like young sheep?

7 Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the } Lord : at the presence of the God of Ja-cob;

8 Who turned the hard rock into a standing } wa-ter: and the flint-stone { into a spring-ing well.

Psalm cxviii. Confitemini Domino.
O GIVE thanks unto the Lord, for he is į gra-

, } cious: because his mercy en- { dureth for ev-er.
