“ Shall know their God is strong.” & Then let the world forbear its rage,
Nor put the church in fear: Isra'l must live thro' ev'ry age,
And be th’ Almighty's care.]
9 When Pharaoh dar'd to vex the saints,
And thus provok'd their God, Moses was sent at their complaints,
Arm’d with his dreadful rod.
Like an o'erwhelming flood;
To lakes and Itreams of blood.
Thro' the whole country spread;
About the monarch's bed.
The ten-fold veng'ance few :
And hail their cattle New.
The flower of Egypt dy'd;
Their glory and their pride.
Isra'l must live thro' ev'ry age,

And left the hated ground;
And not one feeble fouad.
And mark'd their jouroies right, Gave them a leading cloud by day,
A fiery guide by night.
In rich abundance flow,
Ran all the defart thro'.
Of ever flowing grace!
Thro' all this wilderness.
The chosen tribes poffe ft
And there enjoy'd their rest.
The church renounce her fear : Ifra'l must live thro' ev'ry age,
And be th Almighty's care.
PSALM CVI. 1-5. First part:
Praise to God; or, Cornmunion with Saints.
O God the great, the ever blest,
Let longs of honour be addrest:
His mercy firm for ever stands;
Give him the thanks his love demands. 2 Who knows the wonders of thy ways?
Who shall fulfil thy boundless praise?
And pay their duty to thy will. 3 Remember what'thy mercy did
For Jacob's race, thy chosen feed;
The meanest fippliaat of thy grace, 4 O may I see thy tribes rejoice,
And aid their triumphs with my voice!
G How fickle are our ways!

While rocks with rivers flow;
And he reduc'd them low.
He hearkeo'd to their groans,
Brought his own cov’nant to his thoughts,
And call'd them still his fons. 5 Their names were in his book,
He fav'd them from their foes: Oft he chastis'd, but ne'er forsook
The people that he chose. 6 Let Isra'l bless the Lord,
Who lov'd their antient race; And Christians join the folemn word
Amen to all the praise.
PSALM CVII. First Part. Ifrael led to Cannan, and Christians to heaven.
IVE thanks to God; he reigos above,
Kind are his thoughts, his name is love; His mercy ages past have known,
And ages long to come, shall own. 2 Let the redeemed of the Lord
The wonders of his grace record;
And rescu'd from their mighty foes.
Their fetters and th' Egyptian yoke,
A wild and folitary ground.
Nor city for a fix'd abode; • Nor food por fountain to assuage
Their burning thirst, or hungers rage.] s In their distress to God they. cry'd,
God was their Saviour and their guide;
6 Thus when our first release we gaia
From fin's old yoke, and Satan's chain,
A dang’rous and a tiresome place,
He guides our footsteps left we stray,
And brings us to the heav'nly land. 8 O let the faints with joy record !
The truth and goodness of the Lord !
his works! how kind his ways !! Let ev'ry tongue pronounce his praise.
PSALM CVII. Second Part.
And feeds the poor with ev'ry good. 2 But if their hearts rebel and rife
Against the God that rules the skies,
And Night the counsels of the Lord.
And no deliv'rer shall be found;
chey waste their breath In darkness and the shades of death. 4 Then to the Lord they raise their cries,
He makes the dawning light arise,
That hung so heavy round their head, 5 He cuts the bars of brass in two,
And lets the smiling pris’ner thro',
