5 From East to West, from West to East,

his restless Course he goes : And, thro' his Progress, cheerful Light

and vital Warinth bestows.

PSA L M XIX. P. 2.

OD's perfect Law converts the Soul,

reclaims from falfe Defires; With sacred Wisdom his sure Word

the Ignorant inspires. 2 The Statutes of the Lord are just,

and bring sincere Delight: His pure Commands in Search of Truth,

allift the feebleit Sight. 3 His perfect Worship here is fix'd,

on sure Foundations laid: His equal Laws are in the Scales

of Truth and Justice we gh'd. 4. Of more Esteem than golden Mines,

or Gold refin'd with Skill; More sweet than Honey, or the Drops,

that from the Comb diftil. 5 My trusty Councellors they are,

and friendly Warnings give; Divine Rewards attend on those, who by thy Precepts live.

PSA L M XXIII. IT "HE Lord himself, the mighty Lord, vouchsafes to be my Guide;

The Shepherd bv whose constant Care

my Wants are all supply'd. 2 In tender Grass he makes me feed,

and gently there repose; Then leads me to coul Shades, and where

refreshing Water flows.
3 He does my wand'ring Soul reclaim,

and to his endless Praise,
Instruct with humble Zeal to walk

in his most righteous Ways.
4 I pass the gloomy Vale of Death,

from Fear and Danger free;
For there his aiding Rod and Staff

defend and comfort me.
5 In Presence of my spiteful Foes

he does my Table spread ;
He crowns my Cup with cheerful Wine,

With Oil anoints mine Head.
6 Since God does thus his wondrous Love

through all my Life extend, That Life to him I will devote,

and in his Temple spend.

PSA L M XXIII. O. V.

MY Shepherd is the living Lord,

nothing therefore I need: In Pastures fair, near pleasant Streams,

he setteth me to feed. 2 He shall convert and glad my Soul,

and bring my Mind in frame;

T.

To walk in Paths of Righteousness,

for his most holy Name.
3 Yea, tho' I walk in Vale of Death,

yet will I fear no Ill;
Thy Rod and Staff do comfort me,

and thou art with me still. 4. And in the Presence of my

Foes
my Table thou shalt spread:
Thou wilt fill full my Cup, and thou

anointed hast my Head.
5 Thro' all my Life thy Favour is

so frankly shew'd to me, That in thy House for evermore my dwelling Place shall be.

PSALM XXIV. I THIS

HIS spacious Earth is all the Lord's,

the Lord's her Fulness is; The World and they that dwell therein,

by foy'reign Right are his. 2 He fram'd and fix'd it on the Seas;

and his almighty Hand, Upon inconstant Floods has made

the stabie Fabric stand. 3 But for himself this Lord of all

one chosen Seat design'd: O! who shall to that facred Hill

desery'd Admittance find? 4 The Man whose Hands and Heart are pure,

whose Thoughts from Pride are free; Who honeft Poverty prefers To gainful Perjury.

5 This, this is he, on whom the Lord

shall show'r his Blessings down; Whom God his Saviour Thall vouchsafe with Righteousness to crown.

PSA L M XXIV. P. 2.
I ERECT your Heads, eternal Gates :

2 Who is the King of Glory? who?

the Lord for Strength renown'd, In Battle mighty, o'er his Foes

eternal Victor crown'd.
3
Erect your Heads, ye Gates, unfold,

in State to entertain
The King of Glory : fee! he comes

with all his shining Train.
4 Who is the King of Glory? who?

the Lord of Hosts renown'd: Of Glory he alone is King,

who is with Glory crown'd.

PSA L M XXV. I *HY Mercies and thy Love,

O Lord, recall to mind; And graciously continue still,

As thou wert ever, kind. 2 Let all my youthful Crimes

be blo ted out by thee : And, for thy wond'rous Goodnefs fake,

in Mercy think on me.

3 His Mercy and his Truth

the righteous Lord displays,
In bringing wand'ring Sinners home,

and teaching thein his Ways. 4. He those in Justice guides,

who his Direction seek;
And in his sacred Paths shall lead

the Humble and the Meek. 5 Thro' all the Ways of God

both Truth and Mercy shine, To such as with religious Hearts,

to his blest Will incline.

PSA L M XXV. P. 2. I Since Mercy is the Grace

that most exalts thy Fame, Forgive my hainous Sin, O Lord,

and-so advance thy Name, 2 Whoe'er with humble Fear,

to God his Duty pays, Shall find the Lord a faithful Guide,

in all his righteous Ways. 3 His quiet Soul with Peace

Thall be for ever blest,
And by his num 'rous Race the Land

successively possest.
4
For God to all his Saints

his sacred Will imparts, And does his gracious Cov’nant write in their obedient Hearts,
