I

shall see remorseless Sinners drown'd, 6 Thy Favour, Lord, in al Distress,

my Tow'r of Refuge I must own;
Thou shalt my haughty Foes suppress,
and me with Songs of Triumph crown.

PSALM XXXIII,
LET all the Just to God with Joy,

;
For well the Righteous it becomes,

to fing ģlad Songs of Praile. 2 Let Harps, and Psalteries, and Lutes,

in joyful Concert meet; And new-made Songs of loud Applaufe

2 the Harmony complete. 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 Our Souls on God with Patience wait;

our Help and Shield is he; Then, Lord, let ftill our Hearts rejoice,

because we trust in thee, 5 The Riches of thy Mercy, Lord,

do thou to us extend; Since

we, for all we want or with, on thee alone depend.

PSALM XXXIV. 1 "HRO’ all the changing Scenes of Life, in Trouble and in Joy ;

The

The Praises of my God shall still

my Heart and Tongue employ. 2 Of his Deliv'rance I will boast,

'till all that are distress’d,
From my Example Comfort take,

and charm their Griefs to rest. 3 O! magnify the Lord with me,

with me exalt his Name : When in Distress to him I callid,

he to my Rescue came.
4 O! make but Trial of his Love,

Experience will decide
How bleft they are, and only they,

why in his Truth confide.
5 Fear him, ye Saints, and you will then

have Nothing elle to fear; Make you

his Service your Delight, he'll make your Wants his Care.

PSALM XXXIV.
APPROACH, ye piously dispos’d,
and
my

Instruction hear;
I'll teach you the true Discipline

of his religious Fear. 2 Let him who Length of Life desires,

and prosp'rous Days would see, From Nand'ring Language keep his Tongue,

his Lips from Falthood free. 3 The crooked Paths of Vice decline,

and Virtue's Ways pursue ;

Establish

Establish Peace, where 'tis begun;

and where 'tis loft, renew. 4 The Lord from Heav'n beholds the Just

with favourable Eyes;
And when distress'd, his gracious Ear

is open to their Cries :
5 But turns his wrathful Look on those

whom Mercy can't reclaim,
To cut them off, and from the Earth

blot out their hated Name.
6 The Wicked from their wicked Arts

Their Ruin shall derive;
Whilst righteous Men, whom they deteft,

shall them and theirs survive.
7 For God preserves the Souls of those,

who on his Truth depend ; To them, and their Pofterity, his Blessings shall descend.

PSA L M XXXVI. O

Lord, thy Mercy, my sure Hope,

the highest Orb of Heav'n transcends ; Thy sacred Truth's unmeasur'd Scope

beyond the spreading Sky extends. 2 Thy Justice, like the Hills, remains ;

unfathom'd Depths thy Judgments are; Thy Providence the World sustains;

the whole Creation is thy Care. 3 Since of thy Goodness all partake,

with what Assurance should the Just Thy shelt'ring Wings their Refuge make,

and Saints to thy Protection trust!

4 Such Guefts fhall to thy Courts be led,

to tanquet on thv Love's Repast; And drink, astrom a Fountain's Head,

of Joys that shall for ever last. 5 With thee the Springs of Life remain;

thy Presence is eternal Day; O! let thy Saints thy Favour gain;

to uj right Hearts thy Truth display.

PSA L M XXXVI, O. V. i Lord, thy Goodness doth ascend

above the Heav'ns most high: So doth thy Truth itself extend

unto the cloudy Sky. 2 Much more than Hills both high and steep,

thy Justice is exprelt; Thy Judgments like the Seas most deep,

thou fav ft both Man and Beast. 3 Thy Merey is above all Things,

O God, it doth excel :
In Truit whereof, as in thy Wings,

the Sons of Men thall dwell.
4 Within thy House they shall be fed

with Plenty at their Will:
Of all Delights they shall be sped,

and take thereof their Fill.
5 Because the Well of Life most pure

doth cver flow from thee :
And in thv Light we are full sure

eternal Light to see

6 From such as thee defire to know,

let not thy Grace depart:
Thy Righteousness declare and show,

to Men of upright Heart.

PSALM XXXVII.
1 THOwicked Men grow rich or great,

Yet let not their successful State
Thy Anger or thy Envy raise:
For they, cut down like tender Grass,
Or like young Flow'rs, away fhall pass,

Whole blooming Beauty loon decays.
2 Depend on God, and him obey,
So thou within the Land shalt stay,

Secure from Danger and from Want:
Make his Commands thy chief Delight,
And he, thy Duty to requite,

Shall all thy earnest Wishes grant. 3 In all thy Ways trust thou the Lord, And he will needful Help afford

To perfect ev'ry just Design:
He'll make, like Light ferene and clear,
Thy clouded Innocence appear,
And as a Mid-day Sun to shine.

PSALM XXXVII. P. 2.
WITH quiet Mind on God depend,

And patiently for him attend;
Nor let thy Anger fondly rise,
Tho' wicked Men
with Wealth abound,
