PSALM 110. II. 4.
From the cxxxvi. Psalm of David.
Your joyful thanks repeat;
As good as he is great:
Our constant friend;
Shall never end.
All other gods obey,
For God &c.
Amazing works are wrought;
For God &c.
About the spacious land;
For God &c. :3

PSALM 111. L. M.
From the cixxvii. Psalm of David,
Sat down by proud Euphrates' stream,
And Sion was our mournful theme.
2 Our harps, that, when with joy we sung,
Were wont their tuneful parts to bear, With silent strings neglected hung
On willow trees that wither'd there, 3 0 Salem, our once happy seat,
When I of thee forgetful prove, Let then my trembling hand forget
The speaking strings with art to move! 4 If I to mention thee forbear,
Perpetual silence be my doom; Or if my chiefest joy compare
With thee, Jerusalem, my home!
PSALM 112. C, M.
From the cxxxviii. Psalm of David. 1 WITH my whole heart, my God and King,
Thy praise I will proclaim; Before the mighty I will sing,
And bless thy holy Name,
And, with thy love inspired,
O’er all thy works admired.
When I to thee did cry;
Didst inward strength supply.
Does thence the poor respect;
Beholds with just neglect.
He shall my foes disarın,
And keep me safe from harm.
Shall fix moy happy state;
Shall his own work complete,
PSALM 113. L. M.
From the cxxxix. Psalm of David: 1 THOU, LORD, by strictest search hast known My rising up and lying down; My secret thoughts are known to thee,
Known long before conceived by me. 2 Thine eye my bed and path surveys, My public haunts and private ways: Thou know'st what 't is my lips would vent, My yet unutter'd words? intent.
3 Surrounded by thy power I stand,
Too dazzling bright for mortal eye!.
Or whither from thy presence run? 5 If up to heaven I take my flight,
'T is there thou dwell'st enthroned in light;
There also hast thou thine abode.
And fly beyond the western main;
Would kindle darkness into day.
A work of such a wondrous frame. 10 Let me acknowledge too, O God,
That since this maze of life I trod,
The power of numbers to recount. 11 Far sooner could I reckon o'er
The sands upon the ocean's shore;
I find th' account but new begun.
If mischief lurk in any part;
PSALM 114. C. M.
From the cxli. Psalm of David. 1 LORD, in thy sight, O let my prayer
Like morning incense rise; My lifted hands accepted be
As ev’ning sacrifice.
And let a constant guard
With wary silence barr’d.
3 From wicked men's designs and deeds.
My heart and hands restrain; Nor let me share their evil works,
Or their unrighteous gain. 4 Let upright men reprove my faults,
And I shall think them kind; Like healing oil upon my head
I their reproof shall find.
PSALM 115. C. M.
From the cxliii. Psalm of David.
Thy wonted audience lend;
A gracious answer send.
Thy servant to be tried;
Can e'er be justified.
I servently stretch out;
Like land oppress’d with drought, 4 Hear me with speed, my spirit fails;
Thy face no longer bide, Lest I become forlorn, like them
That in the grave reside.
Whose trust on thee depends;
My soul to thee ascends.
Preserve and set me free;
My soul implores from thee.
Instruct me to obey ;
My soul in thy right way.
Revive my drooping heart;
Thy saving health impart.
PSALM 116. L. M.
From the cxliv. Psalm of David. 1 LORD, what's in man, that thou should'st love
of him such tender care to take ? What in his offspring could thee move
Such great account of him to make ?
2 The life of man does quickly fade,
His thoughts but empty are and vain,
Of whose short stay no signs remain. 3 To thee, almighty King of kings,
In new-made hymns my voice I'll raise; And instruments of many strings
Shall help me to adore and praise.
PART 1. c. M.
Thy endless praise proclaim;
And ever bless thy Name.
And highly to be praised;
Above our knowledge raised.
To future time extends;
And wondrous works express,
And thy great power confess.
They shall with joy proclaim;
Shall be the constant theme.
His pity still supplies ;
His willing mercy flies.
To all thy works express'd ; These show thy praise, whilst thy great Name
Is by thy servants bless'd.
Shall of thy kingdom speak;
Their lofty subject make.
Shall thus to all be known;
