2 Why throb, my heart? why sink, 4 Ride on in state, and still protect my sadd'ning soul?
Why droop to earth, with various [roll, woes oppress'd? My years shall yet in blissful circles And peace be yet an inmate of this
The meek, the just, and true;
Whilst thy right haud, with swift re
And, clad in rich array,
Does all thy foes pursue.
How sharp thy weapons are to them
The piercing arrow flies.
But thy firm throne, O God, is fix'd,
Thy sceptre's sway shall always last,
7 Because thy heart, by justice led,
8 Therefore did GoD, thy God, on thee
PSALM 40. (II. 2.)
GOD is our refuge in distress,
My tongue is like the pen of him
2 How matchless is thy form, O king!
A present help when dangers
In him, undaunted, we'll confide;
And mountains in the ocean lost,
The royal seat of GoD most high:
While his Almighty aid is nigh.
And earth her sov'reign LORD CON
The GoD of hosts conducts our arms,
PSALM 41. (L. M.)
And with triumphant voices sing:
3 Gird on thy sword, most mighty 2 He shall assaulting foes repel,
And with success our battles fight; Shall fix the place where we must

GOD is gone up, our LORD and King, 13 Assemble all my saints to me,
To him repeated praises sing,
And let the cheerful song rebound. Your utmost skill in praise be shown, For him who all the world com. mands,
Who sits upon his righteous throne, And spreads his sway o'er heathen lands.
THE LORD, the only God, is great,
In Sion, on whose happy mount
Let Sion's mount with joy resound; Her daughters all be taught In songs his judgments to extol, Who this deliv'rance wrought.. 4 Compass her walls in solemn pomp, Your eyes quite round aer cast; Count all her tow'rs, and see if there You find one stone displac'd. 5 Her forts and palaces survey, Observe their order well; That to the ages yet to come His wonders you may tell.`
3 This GOD is ours, and will be ours,
From the 1. Psalm of David.
HE LORD hath spoke, the mighty Hath sent his summons all abroad, From dawning light till day de clines: [heard, The list'ning earth his voice hath And he from Sion hath appear'd,
Where beauty in perfection shines. 2 Our God shall come, and keep no
Misconstru'd silence as before,
But wasting flames before him send; Around shall tempests fiercely rage, Whilst he does heav'n and earth engage
His just tribunal to attend.
The beav'ns his justice shall declare, For God himself shall sentence give

1 ATTEND, my people; Israel, hear; Thy strong accuser I'll appear;
Thy GoD, thine only God am I: "Tis not of off'rings I complain, Which, daily in my temple slain,
My sacred altar did supply. 2 The sacrifices I require Are hearts which love and zeal inspire And vows with strictest care made good:

And cleanse me from my sin; For I confess my crime, and see How great my guilt has been. 3 Against thee, Lord, alone, Have 1 transgress'd; and, though con And only in thy sight, demn'd,
Must own thy judgment right.
6 With hyssop purge me, LORD,

6 Thus will I call on God, who still Shall in my aid appear;
At morn, at noon, at night I'll pray, And he my voice shall hear.
'(C. M.) From the lvi. Psalm of David.
LORD though at times surpris'd by
Horrors o'erwhelm my head.
3 And thus I breathe my heavy sigh To Him who hears above: "O that my soul on wings could fly, And emulate the dove!
And listen when I pray;
On danger's first alarm, Yet still for succour I depend On thy almighty arm.
2 GOD's faithful promise I shall praise,
Their terrors round me spread; While fearful tremblings seize mys breast,

PART II. (L. M.)
1 LORD! from thy unexhausted store, Thy rain relieves the thirsty ground Makes lands, that barren were before,
With corn and useful fruits abound 2 On rising ridges down it pours,
And ev'ry furrow'd valley fills: Thou mak'st them soft with gentle show'rs,
From the lxvi. Psalm of Dapid.
4 When down Ilie, sweet sleep to find,ET all the lands, with shouts of

Shall thee, their GoD, confess;
O come! behold the works of God, And then with me you'll own That he to all the sons of men'
Has wondrous judgment shown.
