Stanzas 9-14]

2 O Lord, now open Thou my lips, A broken and a contrite heart Long closed by sin and shame;

Thou, Lord, wilt not despise. My mouth shall show before the world

5 Do good to Zion in Thy grace, The glory of Thy Name.

Her ruined walls restore; 3 No sacrifice dost Thou desire,

Then sacrifice of righteousness
Else would I give it Thee;

Shall please Thee as of yore.
Nor with appointed offerings

6 Thy people then with willing hands Wilt Thou delighted be.

And hearts that Thou hast blessed 4 A broken spirit is to God

Shall bring in thankful sacrifice
A pleasing sacrifice;

Their choicest gifts and best.
145 The Vindication of Righteousness
PSALM 52 L. M.

2 Thy tongue deviseth wickedness,

A weapon treacherous and keen;
Thou lovest evil more than good,

And falsehood in thy sight is clean.

3 Since, O thou false, deceitful tongue,

In deadly words thou findest joy, The Lord shall pluck thee from thy

place And all thy wickedness destroy.

4. These men of evil deeds,

70 would that Israel's help Will they no knowledge gain,

Were out of Zion come! Who feed upon my people's woes, O would that God might early bring And prayer to God disdain ?

His captive people home!
8 When God from distant lands

His exiled ones shall bring,
His people shall exultant be,

And gladly they shall sing.

148 PSALM 55

Earnest Appeal Against Enemies
C. M.

IVE

2 My enemies lift up their voice,

The violent oppress;
To do me wrong my foes rejoice,

And love my soul's distress.

3 Sore pained in heart I find no ease,

Death's terrors fill my soul,
Great fear and trembling on me seize,

And horrors o'er me roll.

Earnest Appeal Against Enemies 4 O had I wings, I sigh and say, 6 O Lord, their malice recompense, Like some swift dove to roam,

Their wicked tongues confound, Then would I hasten far away

For in the city violence
And find a peaceful home.

And bitter strife abound.

7 They walk her walls both night and 5 Lo, wandering far my rest should be . day, In some lone desert waste;

Within all vices meet; [sway, I from the stormy wind would flee, Oppression, fraud, and crime hold And to a shelter haste.

Nor leave the crowded street.
