No formal hypocrite shall then

Among the saints have place.

5 Their guilt shall strike the wicked dumb 3 Guarded by him I lay me down
Before their Judge's face:

My sweet repose to take;
For I through him securely sleep,
Through him in safety wake.

S "Ask, and receive thy full demands ;
Thine shall the Heathen be;
The utmost limit of the lands

Shall be possess'd by thee." /

4 Learn then, ye princes; and give ear,
Ye judges of the earth;
Worship the LORD with holy fear;
Rejoice with awful mirth.

OF

DAVID,

5 Appease the Son with due respect,
Your timely homage pay:
Lest he revenge the bold neglect,
Incensed by your delay.

6 If but in part his anger rise,
Who can endure the flame?
Then blest are they, whose hope relies
On his most holy Name.

PSALM 3.

C. M.
From the iii. Psalm of David.

1 THOU, gracious GOD, art my defence;
On thee my hopes rely:
Thou art my glory, and shalt yet
Lift up my head on high.

2 Since whensoe'er, in my distress,
To GOD I made my prayer,
He heard me from his holy hill;
Why should I now despair?

4 Salvation to the LORD belongs;
He only can defend:
His blessings he extends to all
That on his power depend.

PSALM 4.

C. M.
From the iv. Psalm of David.
1 CONSIDER that the righteous man
Is GOD's peculiar choice;
And when to him I make my prayer
He always hears my voice.

2 Then stand in awe of his commands,
Flee every thing that's ill,
Commune in private with your hearts,
And bend them to his will.

8 The sacrifice of righteousness
Present to GOD on high;
And let your hope, securely fix'd,
On him alone rely.

4 While worldly mirds impatient grow
More prosp'rous times to see;
Still let the glories of thy face
Shine brightly, LORD, on me.

4 The righteous LORD will righteous deeds (5 Who to his plighted vows and trust
With signal favor grace,
And to the spright man disclose
The brightness of his face.

Has ever firmly stood;
And, though he promise to his loss,
He makes his promise good.

4 Who vice, in all its pomp and power
Can treat with just neglect;
And piety, though clothed in rags,
Religiously respect.

6 Whose soul in usury disdains
His treasure to employ ;
Whom no rewards can ever bribe
The guiltless to destroy.

S That he the humble soul will save,
And crush the haughty's boasted might,
In me the LORD an instance gave,

Whose darkness he has turn'd to light.
4 Who then deserves to be adored,
But GOD, on whom my hopes depend?
Or who, except the mighty LORD,

Can with resistless power defend? 5 Let the eternal LORD be praised,

The rock on whose defence I rest!
To highest heavens his name be raised,
Who me with his salvation bless'd!
6 My GOD, to celebrate thy fame,

My grateful voice to heaven I'll raise;
And nations, strangers to thy name,
Shall learn to sing thy glorious praise.

PSALM 15.

From the xix. Psalm of David.

The firmament and stars express Their great Creator's skill.

2 The dawn of each returning day Fresh beams of knowledge brings; And from the dark returns of night

Divine instruction springs.

3 Their powerful language to no realm Or region is confined;

'Tis nature's voice, and understood Alike by all mankind.

4 Their doctrine does its sacred sense
Through earth's extent display;
Its bright contents the circling sun
Does round the world convey.

5 From east to west, from west to east,
His ceaseless course he goes;
And, through his progress, cheerful light
And vital warmth bestows.

PART I.

C. M.

1 THE heavens declare thy glory, LORD, Our heart's devout request allow. Which that alone can fill;

Our holy wishes give!

9 With humble worship to his throne
They all for aid resort;
That power, which first their being gave,
Alone can them support.
