1. PSALM 17. L. M.
1 What sinners válue, I resign;
Lord, 'tis enough that thou art mine :
And stand complete in righteousness.
But the bright world to which I go,
When shall I wake and find me there?
I shall be near, and like my God;
The sacred pleasures of the soul.
Till the last trumpet's joyful sound :
And in my Savior's image rise. Note : In some of the cases where the mark of monotone occurs, there is a little inflection, most commonly downwards.
2. Psalm 93. P. M.
And royal state maintains,
Array'd in robes of light,
Begirt with sovereign right,
Like billows fierce and loud,
The surly nations fight,
And all their power engāge;
The terrors of thy frown
Shall beat their madness down;
3. Psalm 132. C. M. i Arise, O King of grace, arise,
And enter to thy rest :
Thus to be own'd and blest.
Thy Spirit and thy word ;
Could no such grace afford.
Here let thy praise be spread ;
And fill thy poor with bread.
Let God's anointed shine ;
With love and power divine.
And as his kingdom grows,
Psalm 135. C. M. 1 Great is the Lord, and works unknown
Are his divine employ;
His treasure and his joy. 2 All power that gods or kings have claim'd
Is found with him alone; But heathen gods should ne'er be nam'd
Where our JehcVAH's known,
3. Which of the stocks and stones they trust,
Can give them showers of ràin
And pray to gold in vain.
Serve him with faith and fear;
5. Psalm 139. L. M.
Are to my God distinctly known;
Ere from my op’ning lips they break.
What large extent ! what lofty height !
Is in the boundless prospect - lost.
Where'er I róve, where'er I rest;
6. Psalm 146. L. P. M.
Praise shall employ my nobler powers :
Or immortality endures.
Vain is the help of flesh and blood; Their breath departs, their pomp and pow'r, And thoughts all vanish in an hour;
Nor can they make their promise good.
3 Happy the man whose hopes rely
And earth, and seas, with all their train :
And none shall find his promise vain.
7. Hymn 142, BOOK I. 1 Like sheep we went astray,
And broke the fold of God; Each wandring in a diff"rent way,
But all the downward road. 2 How dreadful was the hour,
When God our wand'rings laid, And did at once his vengeance pour
Upon the Shepherd's head ! 3 How glorious was the grace,
When Christ sustain'd the stroke ! His life and blood the Shepherd pays,
A ransom for the flock.
8. Hymn 14, Book 11. 1 Welcome, sweet day of rest,
That saw the Lord arise ;
And these rejoicing eyes! 2 One day amidst the place
Where my dear God hath been, Is sweeter than ten thousand days
Of pleasurable sin.
In such a frame as this ;
To everlasting bliss.
9. HYMN 76, BOOK II. 1 Hosanna to the Prince of light,
That cloth’d himnself in clay ; Enter'd the iron gates of death,
And tore the bars away.
Since our Immanuel rose ;
And spoild our hellish foes.
To reach his blest abode :
To our incarnate God. 4 Bright angels ! .. strike your loudest strings,
Your sweetest voices raise;
10. Hymn 77, Book i.
And gird the gospel armor on;
Where thy great Captain-Savior's gone. 2 Hell and thy sins resist thy course,
But hell and sin are vanquish'd foes ;
And sung the triumph when he rose. 3 Then let my soul march boldly on,
Press forward to the heavenly gate ;
And glittring robes for conqu’rors wait. 4 There shall I wear a starry crown,
And triumph in almighty grace ;
Join in my glorious Leader's praise.
