Thou in the morn my voice shalt hear;
And, with the dawning day, To thee devoutly I'll look up,
To thee devoutly pray. And when thy boundless grace shall me
To thy lov'd courts restore; On thee I'll fix my longing eyes,
And humbly there adore. There let all those, who trust in thee,
With shouts their joy proclaim; Let them rejoice whom thou preserv'st,
And all that love thy name.
PSALM VI.—(c. M.)
Thy feeble worm, O God!
And trembles at thy rod.
And spare my fainting breath:
Who bless thy name in death?
Insults me in my pain:
And tells me, hope is vain.
Nor tempt me to despair: My Saviour comes to cheer my
heart, My God has heard my pray’r.
: PSALM VIII.-(c. m.) O LORD, to whom all creatures bow
Within this earthly frame, Through all the world how great art thou,
How glorious is thy name! Lord, what is man, that thou shouldst love
To keep him in thy mind? Or son of man, that thou shouldst prove
To him so wondrous kind ?
On earth a mortal form;
To save a worthless wormi?
Might life and glory claim.
PSALM IX.-C. M.)
We will our hearts prepare;
Thy wondrous works, declare.
Exalted pleasures bring;
Triumphant praise we sing.
Will in thy truth confide:
That on thy help relied.
Sing praises therefore to the Lord,
From Sion, his abode; Proclaim his deeds, till all the world
Confess no other God.
PSALM XIII.-(P. M.) Lord of mercy, just and kind,
Wilt thou ne'er my guilt forgive ? Never shall my troubled mind
In thy kind remembrance live? Lord, how long, with sorrows vex'd,
Daily shall my heart complain? While my anxious soul, perplex'd,
Counsel takes, but takes in vain ? Lord, my God, thine ear incline,
Bending to the prayer of faith; Cheer my eyes with light divine,
Lest I sleep the sleep of death. On thy mercy I rely,
Mercy, heavenly Lord, impart; Mercy brings salvation nigh, Mercy shall rejoice my heart.
PSALM XV.-(P. M.) Who, great God! with favour blest, On thy holy hill shall rest? He, who with a heart sincere Walks directed by thy fear: Rules of righteousness divine, Daily in his practice shine; Ne'er from truth his lips depart, Sacred held within his heart:
He will not his neighbour wrong,
PSALM XVI.-(c. M.)
To God's all-seeing eye ;
Because he still is nigh.
My glory does rejoice,
Wak’d by his powerful voice.
My soul from hell shalt free;
The least corruption see.
Which to thy presence lead ;
PSALM XVII.-(L. M.). This world is full of toil and woe; But that bright world, to which we go, Hath neither sorrow, pain, nor care: When wilt thou, Lord, receive us there?
O glorious hour! O blest abode!
PSALM XVIII.–Version 1. (c. M.) O God, my strength and fortitude,
Of force I must love thee;
In my necessity.
I pray'd to God for grace ;
Out of his holy place.
And bow'd the heav'ns most high;
The darkness of the sky.
Full royally he rode,
Came flying all abroad.
PSALM XVIII.- Version 2. (L. M.) No change of times shall ever shock
My firm affection, Lord, to thee; For thou hast always been a rock,
A fortress and defence to me.
