II. . , His goodness leads us to the place
Where heav'nly pasture grows :
He doth us still reftore;
. While thus our GOD affords his aid,
We cannot yield to fear : Tho’ we should walk through death's dark shade,
Our shepherd's with us there.
Psalm XIX. T. GOD our Preserver.
To heaven my grateful foul afcends,
1 On GOD alone for help depends :
77 PSALM XX. Dependance on GOD and hope in his
And strength’n’d all my youth.
With all these limbs of mine:
With each returning year :
When hoary hairs arise:
When men review my days; They'll read thy love in ev'ry page, In ev'ry line thy praise.
Psalm XXI.. 33
And builds his church, his earthly throne.
But GOD their maker is unknown.
In vain they boast, in vain rely:
When death, or dangers threat’ning stand:
Send us falvation from thy throne:
O GOD, in thee we hope alone.
I ORD, unto thee we lift our eyes, .
Art our sufficient aid:
GOD guides our feet, and guards our way,
· With an almighty arm: Preserves us safe, both night and day, From all destructive harm.
.: III. What tho' thy providence should call
· Where death displays it's pow'r; Short of our lives the shafts shall fall,
Till GOD appoints the hour.
1. TTE who has GOD his guardian made 11 Shall under his almighty shade
Secure and undisturb'd abide : This man with joy divine may fay, He is my fortress and my stay ; Who always hath my wants supply'd.
II. For all whose well-plac'd confidence Have made the LORD their fure defence,
May rest upon his promises : Either no ill shall them o'ertake; Or else their very suff'rings make
Their hearts and lives prepard for bliss.
