5 Then hide not thou thy face, O Lord, Nor me in wrath reject;
My God and Saviour, leave not him
6 Though all of nearest earthly ties,
7 Instruct me in thy paths, O Lord,
8 I trusted that my future life
Should with thy love be crown'd;
9 God's time with patient faith expect,
SELECTION 23. C. M.
From the xxviii. Psalm of David.
His praise I will resound,
2 He is my strength and shield; my heart Has trusted in his Name;
And now relieved, my heart, with joy,
3 The Lord, the everlasting God,
The saving health, the saving strength,
4 O save and bless thy people, Lord, Thy heritage preserve;
Feed, strengthen, and support their hearts, That they may never swerve.
SELECTION 24. L. M.
Your grateful sacrifice prepare;
Where he's with solemn state adored. 3 'Tis he that, with amazing noise,
The watery clouds in sunder breaks; The ocean trembles at his voice,
When he from beaven in thunder speaks. 4 How full of power his voice appears!
With what majestic terror crown'd! Which from their roots tall cedars tears,
And strews their scattered branches round.
5 God rules the angry floods on high;
His boundless sway shall never cease; His saints with strength he will supply, And bless his own with constant peace.
SELECTION 25. C. M.
From the xxx. Psalm of David.
IN my distress to God I cried,
And from the grave's expecting mouth
20 to his courts, ye saints of his,
3 His wrath has but a moment's reign,
The night of grief is recompensed
4 Therefore, O Lord, I'll gladly sing
SELECTION 26. S. M.
From the xxxi. Psalm of David.
EFEND me, Lord, from shame,
As just and righteous is thy Name,
2 Bow down thy gracious ear,
3 To thee, the God of truth,
My life, and all that's mine, (For thou preserv'st me from my youth,) I willingly resign.
4 My hope, my steadfast trust,
That thou, my God, art good and just,
5 Whate'er events betide,
Thy wisdom times them all; Then, Lord, thy servant safely hide From those that seek his fall.
6 The brightness of thy face
To me, O Lord, disclose;
7 How great thy mercies are
8 0 all ye saints, the Lord
9 Ye that on God rely,
SELECTION 27. L. M.
E'S blest, whose sins have pardon gain'd,
to Whose guilt remission has obtain'd, And whose repentance is sincere. 2 No sooner I my wound disclosed,
The guilt that tortured me within, But thy forgiveness interposed,
And mercy's healing balm pour'd in. 3 Sorrows on sorrows multiplied,
The harden'd sinner shall confound; But them who in His truth confide,
Blessings of mercy shall surround. 4 His saints, that have perform'd his laws, Their life in triumph shall employ; Let them, as they alone have cause, In grateful raptures shout for joy.
From the xxxiii. Psalm of David.
Their cheerful voices raise;
2 Let harps, and psalteries, and lutes,
And new-made songs of loud applause
3 For faithful is the word of God, His works with truth abound: He justice loves, and all the earth
Is with his goodness crown'd.
4 By his almighty word, at first,
The heavenly arch was rear'd;
5 Let earth, and all that dwell therein, Before him trembling stand:
For, when he spake the word, 'twas made, 'Twas fix'd at his command.
PART II. C. M.
1 WHATE'ER the mighty Lord decrees, Shall stand for ever sure;
The settled purpose of his heart
2 How happy then are they, to whom
Whom he, from all the world besides,
3 Our soul on God with patience waits;
Then, Lord, let still our hearts rejoice,
4 The riches of thy mercy, Lord,
From the xxxiv. Psalm of David.
HROUGH all the changing scenes of life,
The praises of my God shall still
And charm their griefs to rest. 30 magnify the Lord with me,
With me exalt his Name: When in distress to him I call'd, He to my rescue came.
4 The Angel of the Lord encamps Around the good and just; Deliverance he affords to all
Who on his succour trust. 5 O make but trial of his love, Experience will decide
How blest they are, and only they,
