6 O that men would praise the LORD,
For his goodness to their race;
And the riches of his grace!
PART II. 1 The wondrous power, Almighty LORD,
That rules the boist'rous sea,
Who tempt that dang’rous way. 2 At thy command the winds arise,
And swell the tow'ring waves ; While they astonishid mount the skies,
And sink in gaping graves.
Dismay'd they plunge again;
And finds his courage vain. 4 Then to the Lord they raise their cries,
He hears their loud request,
And lays the floods to rest.
They see the storm allay'd:
There, let their vows be paid !
The goodness of the LORD!
His wondrous love record !
: O GOD, my heart is fully bent
To magnify thy Name;
Shall celebrate thy fame.
Thy warbling notes delay;
Prevent the dawning day.
Thy wonders I will tell,
That round about us dwell;
The highest heaven transcends, And far beyond th' aspiring clouds
Thy faithful truth extends.
5 Be thou, O God, exalted high
Above the starry frame;
PSALM 89. II. 2.
From the cx. Psalm of David.
Sit thou in state at my right hand:
Subjected to thy just command.
And, when thy rising beams they view, Shall all, (redeem'd from error's night) Appear more numerous and bright
Than crystal drops of morning dew." 3 The LORD hath sworn, nor sworn in vain, That, like Melchisedec's, thy reign
And priesthood shall no period see: Anointed Prince! thou, bending low, Shalt drink where darkest torrents flow, Then raise thy head in victory!
PSALM 90. L. M.
From the cxi. Psalm of David. 1 PRAISE ye the LORD! our God to praise
My soul her utmost power shall raise;
Of saints, his praise shall be my song. 2 His works, for greatness though renown'd,
His wondrous works with ease are found By those who seek for them aright,
And in the pious search delight.
And universal glory claim;
Shall to eternal ages last.
To keep his wondrous works in mind;
That good and gracious is our LORD. 5 His bounty, like a flowing tide,
Has all his servants' wants supplied ;
His cov'nant with our fathers sign'd. 6 Just are the dealings of his hands,
Immutable are his commands,
1 THAT man is bless'd who stands in awe
Of God, and loves his sacred law;
And with successive honors crown'd. 2 The soul that 's fill'd with virtue's light
Shines brightest in affliction's night;
As well as just to all mankind. 3 His lib'ral favors he extends,
To some he gives, to others lends;
He saves by prudence in affairs.
Unmoved shall he maintain his ground; The sweet remembrance of the just Shall flourish when he sleeps in dust.
1 YE saints and servants of the LORD, The triumphs of his Name record;
His sacred Name for ever bless : Where'er the circling sun displays His rising beams or setting rays,
Due praise to his great Name address. 2 God through the world extends his sway; The regions of eternal day
But shadows of his glory are: With him whose majesty excels, Who made the heaven in which he dwells,
Let no created power compare. 3 Though 't is beneath his state to view In highest heaven what angels do,
Yet he to earth vouchsafes his care; He takes the needy from his cell, Advancing him in courts to dweí,
Companion of the greatest there.
PSALM 93. C. M.
From the cxv. Psalm of David.
But to thy sacred Name
And truth's eternal fame.
The God whom ye adore Ž»i
And uncontroll'd thy power.
Who is your help and shield;
Whó only help can yield.
On him they fear rely;
And all their wants supply. 5 Of us he oft has mindful been,
And Israel's house will bless;
Who his great Name confess.
Increase of blessings bring:
of this almighty King !
His empire's seat design'd;
A portion to mankind.
To him no praise afford;
Our ever-living LORD.
From the cxvi. Psalm of David.
1 My soul with grateful thoughts of love
Entirely is possess'd,
The voice of my request.
I never will despair;
To him address my prayer.
With pains of hell oppressid,
And anguish rack'd my breast,
4 On God's almighty Name I call’d,
And thus to him I pray'd;
With sorrows quite dismay'd.” 5 How just and merciful is God,
How gracious is the LORD!
Does timely help afford. 6 Then, free from pensive cares, my soul,
Resume thy wonted rest;
His bounteous love express'd.
My dangers and my fears;
And dried my eyes from tears.
Which God to me shall lend,
And in his service, spend. 9 In God I trusted, and of him
Did boast in greatest fear;
All men are insincere.
For all his goodness make?
The cup of blessing take.
Whose blood (howe'er despised
Is always highly prized. 12 To thee I 'll off'rings bring of praise,
And while I bless thy Name,
To all thy saints proclaim. 13 They in Jerusalem shall meet,
And in thy house shall join
PSALM 95. C. M.
From the cxvii. Psalm of David.
To heaven their voices raise ;
Sing solemn hymns of praise. 2 God's tender mercy knows no bound,
His truth shall ne'er decay;
Their grateful tribute pay
