When floods of huge temptations roll,
There shall they find a blest retreat. 4 How fafe beneath thy wings I lye,
When days grow dark, and storms appear:
PSALM XXXIII. First Part. Com. Metre
Works of Creation and Providence,
Rejoice, we righteous in the Lord,
This work belongs to you:
How holy, just and true!
Let heav'n and earth proclaim; His works of nature and of grace
Reveal his wond'rous name.
The heav'nly arches spread;
Their shining hosts were made. 4 Hè bid the liquid waters flow
To their appointed deep;
And their own station keep.
With fear before him stand;
And rests on his command,
And breaks their vain designs;
Aad in full glory shines.
PSALM XXXIII. Second Part. Com. Metre.
Creatures vain, and God all sufficient.
Where he reveals his heav'nly word,
And calls their tribes his own; 2 His eye with infinite survey
Does the whole world behold; He form'd us all of equal clay,
And knows our feeble mould. • 3 Kings are not rescu'd by the force Of armies from the
grave: Nor speed nor courage of an horse
Can the bold rider save. 4 Vain is the strength of beasts or men,
To hope for safety thence; But holy fouls from God obtain
A strong and fure defence. 5 God is their fear, and God their trust,
When plagues or famine spread; His watchful eye secures the just
Among ten thousand dead.
And bless us from thy throne;
And trust thy grace alone.
PSALM XXXIII. As the 113th Pfal. First Parts
Works of Creation and Providence.
Your Maker's praife becomes your voice, Great is your theme, your songs be new; Siog of his name, his word, his ways,
His works of nature and of grace,
How wise and holy, just and true ! 2 Justice and truth he ever loves, And the whole earth his goodness proves,
His word the heav'nly arches spread; How wide they shine from north to south! And by the spirit of his mouth
Were all the starry armies made.
In the vart lore-house of the deep:
His everlasting orders keep. 4 Let mortals tremble and adore A God of such refiftless pow'r,
Nor dare iodulge their feeble rage:
And rules the world from age to age. PSALMXXXIII. Asthe 113th Pfal. Second Part.
Creatures vain, and God all suficient.
O Heppy nation where the Lord
Reveals the treasure of his word,
But God their Maker is unknown.
In vain they boast, in vaio rely;
To guard his rider or to fly.
3 The eye of thy compassion, Lord,
When death or dangers threatoing stand:
When wars or famive waste the land,
Send us falvation from thy throne; We wait to see thy goodnefs shine; Let us rejoice in help divine,
For all our hope is God alone.
PSALM XXXIV. First Part. Long Metre.
'L Thy praise Thall
dwell upon my tongue :
My soul shall glory in thy grace,
While faints rejoice to hear the song. 2 Come, magnify the Lord with me,
Come, let us all exalt his name;
Has not expos'd my hope to shame.
gave my inward pains relief,
O fear and love him, all his faiats,
Taste of his grace, and trust his word.
And hunger roar, thro' all the wood;
PSALM XXXIV. 11, -22. Second Part.
Religious Education ; or, Instructions of Piety. I
(Hildren in years and knowlege young,
Your parents hope, your parents joy,
Let pious thoughts your minds employ. 2 If you desire a length of days,
And peace to crown your mortal state
Your lips from Nander and deceit. 3 The eyes of God regard his faints,
His ears are open to their cries;
The fons of violence and lies.
God with his grace is ever nigh;
When men in deep contrition lye.
His Son redeems their souls from death;
