4 O bless our God, and never ceafe ;

Ye Saints, fulfil his 'Praise ;
He keeps our Life, maintains our Peace,

And guides our doubtful Ways. 5 LORD, Thou haft prov'd our suff'ring Souls,

To make our Graces shine ;
So Silver bears the burning Coals,

The Metal to refine.
6 Through wat’ry Deeps and fiery Ways

We march at thy Command,
Led to poffefs the promis'd Place

By thine unerring Hand.

PART II.

7 NOW fhall my folemn Vows be paid

To that Almighty Pow'r,
Who heard the long Requests I made,

In my distressful Hour.
8 My Lips and cheerful Heart prepare,

To make his Mercies known;
Come ye that fear my God, and hear

The Wonders' He hath done.
9 Wlaen on my Heat huge Sorrows fell,

I fought his heav'ply Aid;!.."
He sav'de my finking Soul'from Hell,

And Death's eternal fhade.
10 If Sin lay cover'd in my Heart

While Pray’r employ'd my Tongue,
The LORD had thewn me no Regard,

Nor I his traifes sung.

Įr But God (his Name be ever bleft)

Hathi set my Spirit free,
Nor turn'd from Him my poor Request,

Nor turn’d his Heart from 'me.

And cause the Brightness of thy Face

On all thy Saints to shine.'

Reveal thy Pow'r through all our Coasts,

And shew thy smiling Face. 2 When shall thy Name, from Shore to Shore,

Sound all the Earth abroad;

Their SAVIOUR and their God? 3 Sing to the LORD, ye distant Lands,

While all our Tongues exalt his Praise,

And all our Hearts rejoice. 4 He, the great LORD, the fov'reign Judge,

Who lits enthron'd above,

In Justice and in Love.

With Fruitfulness and Peace.

His choicest Favours here;
While the Creation's utmost Bound

PSA L M LXVII. Metre iii.

AY God his fav’ring Ear incline,
And bid his Face

; That All thy Counsels, LORD, may know

Where Earth extends, or Oceans How. 2 To Thee of Life th' eternal Spring,

Invisible, All-potent KING,
One Chorus let all Nations raise,

One Shout of universal Praise. 3

Exult each Tribe, exult each Land;
Heav'n's mighty LORD, with equal Hand,
The Balance holds, and Earth's Domain

Shall own to latest Age his Reign.
4
Warm'd by his genial Suns, the Field
With full Increase its Fruits shall yield i
And God, thy God, O Sion, shed

His choicest Blessings on thy Head.
5 Great God, on us thy Bleslings show'r,

Let Man's whole Race revere thy Pow'r,
And, thankful, to their wond'ring Eyes
Behold thy with'd Salvation rise.

PS A L M LXVIII.
ET God arise in all his Might,

And put the Troops of Hell to Flight,
As Smoke that sought to cloud the Skies

Before the rising Tempest flies.
2 He comes array'd in burning Flames;

Justice and Vengeance are his Names :
Behold his fainting Foes expire,
Like melting Wax before the Fire.

3 He rides, and thunders through the Sky;

His Name JEHOVAH sounds on high :
Sing to his Name, ye Sons of Grace ;

Ye Saints rejoice before his Face. 4 The Widow and the Fatherless

Fly to his Aid in sharp Distress :
In Him the Poor and Helpless find

A Judge that's juít, a FATHER kind. 5 He breaks the Captive's heavy Chain,

And Pris'ners see the Light again;
But Rebels that dispute his Will,
Shall dwell in Chains and Darkness still.

PART II. 6 KINGDOMS and Thrones to God belong;

Crown Him, ye Nations, in your Song: His wondrous Names and Pow'rs rehearse;

His Honours shall enrich your Verse. 7 He shakes the Heav'ns with loud Alarms;

How terrible is God in Arms!
In Ijroel are his Mercies known,

Sion is his peculiar Throne. 8 Proclaim Him King, pronounce Him bleft,

He's your DEFENCE, your Joy, your Rest:
When Terrors rise and Nations faint,
Gud is the Strength of ev'ry Saint.

PART III. 9 LORD, when Thou didft ascend on high,

Ten thousand Angels fill'd the Sky:
Those heav'nly Guards around Thee wait,
Like Chariots that attend thy State.
