He cometh forth like a Flower, and is cut down ; he fleeth also as a Shadow and continueth not: Man dieth and wasteth away, yea Man giveth up the Ghost, and where is he?

I know that my Redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter Day upon the Earth; and though after mySkin, Wormsdestroy this Body, yet in my Flesh shall I fee God.

Blessed are the Dead which die in the Lord: even so faith the Spirit, for they rest from their Labours.

X. PRAISE ye the Lord. Praise God in his

Sanctuary : praise him in tlie Firmament of his Power.

Praise him for his mighty Acts: praise him according to his excellent Greatness.

Praise him with the Sound of the Trumpet : praise him with the Psaltery and Harp.

Praise him with the Timbrel and Dance : praise him with stringed Instruments, and Organs.

Praise him upon the loud Cymbals : praise him upon the high-sounding Cymbals.

Let every Thing that hath Breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.

XI. HE shall feed his Flock like aShepherd ; and

he shall gather the Lambs with his Arm,


and carry them in his Bosom, and gently lead those that are with

young. Come unto him, all ye that labour, and are heavy laden, and he will give you Rest.

Take his Yoke upon you, and learn of him, for he is meek and lowly of Heart, and ye Thall find Rest unto your Souls.

His Yoke is easy, and his Burden light.

XII. I Know that my Redeemer liveth, and that

he shall stand at the latter Day upon the Earth: And though Worms destroy this Body, yet in my Flesh shall I see God. For now is Christ risen from the Dead, the first

Fruits of them that fleep. Since by Man came Death, hy Man came also

the Refurrection of the Dead: For as in Adam all die, even fo in Christ shall

all be made alive.

XIII. THE HE Trumpet shall found, and the Dead

shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this Corruptible must put on Incorruption, and this Mortal must put

on Immortality.
O Death where is thy Sting?
O Grave where is thy Victory?
The Sting of Death is Sin,
And the Strength of Sin is the Law.


But Thanks be to God who giveth us the Victory, through our Lord Jesus Christ,

XIV. F God be for us, who can be against us?

Who shall lay any Thing to the Charge of God's Elect? It is God that justifieth, who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that

died, yea rather that is risen again, who is at the right Hand of God, who maketh Interces

fion for us. Worthy is the Lamb that was flain, and hath

redeemed us to God by his Blood, to receive Power, and Riches, and Wisdom, and Strength and Honour

andGlory, and Blessing. Blessing and Honour, Glory and Power be unto

him that sitteth upon the Throne, and unto the Lamb, for ever and ever. Amen.

VIRTUE my Soul shall still embrace;

Goodness shall make me great;
Who builds upon this steady Base,

Dreads no Event of Fate.
Virtue my Soul shall still embrace;
Goodness shall make me great.

THE smiling Dawn of happy Days

Presents a Prospect clear;


And pleasing Hope's all-bright’ning Rays,

Dispel each gloomy Fear;
While every Charm that Peace displays,
Makes Spring-time all the Year.

HOW, dark, O Lord, are thy Decrees,

All hid from mortal Sight;
All our Joys to Sorrows turning,
And our Triumphs into Mourning,

As the Night succeeds the Day,
No certain Bliss, no folid Peace,
We Mortals know, on Earth below,

Yet on this Maxim still obey;
Whatever is, is right.

FOR ever blessed be thy holy Name,

Lord God of If-ra-el.
Theme sublime of endless Praise,
Just and righteous are thy Ways,
And thy Mercies ftill endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.
