4 He 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 his vain Designs;
And in full Glory shines.
PSALM XXXIII. Third Version. Second Parte
Creatures vain, and God all-sufficient.
B Hath fixt his gracious Throne ;
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.
Of Armies from the Grave;
Can the bold Rider fave.
To hope for Safety thence; But holy Souls from God obtain
A strong and sure 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. Fourth Version. First Part. WATTS.
Works of Creation and Providence.
How wise and holy, just and true!
His Word the heav'nly Arches spread; How wide they shine froin North to South ! And by the Spirit of his Mouth
Were all the Starry Armies made.
In the vast Storehouse of the Deep.
His everlasting Orders keep. 4 Mortals, be humble, and adore A God of such resistless Pow'r,
Nor dare indulge your feeble Rage :
And rules the World from Age to Age.
PSALM XXXIII. Fourth Version. Second Part.
Creatures vain, and God all-fufficient.
Reveals the Treasure of his Word,
But God their Maker is unknown.
In vain they boaft, in vain rely;
In vain they trust the brutal Force,
To guard his Rider, or to fly.
When Deaths or Dangers threat'ning stand ::
When Wars or Famine waste the Land.
Send us Salvation from thy Throne ;,
For all our Hope is God alone..
PSALM XXXIV. First Version. MERRICK.
God's Care of the Righteous.
Form to thy Praise the joyful Lay ;
Friend, 2 To God my Soul disclos'd its Care ;
He heard, and present to my Pray'r
Hail, Fountain of exhauitless Grace !
6 [The strengthful Lion's tawny Brood
With Thirst and Penury of Food
Shall find their ev'ry With supply'd.] 7 His Fear preserve, ye Juft and Pure,
And live from Dread of Want secure :
PSALM XXXIV. First Version. Second Part.
to the Righteous.
God to love and fear :
With Blessings crown'd, your Hope can raise. 2 Averse from each injurious Art,
Let Falsehood from your Lips depart;
And plight the ready Hand to Peace.
The Hearts that his Commands obey;
With just Regard their Pray'r fhall hear. 4. With suppliant Voice, in each Distress,
His sole Support, his sole Redress,
Shall seek, and what he seeks shall find. 5 What, though the Juft, by his Decree,
Awhile a Man of Griefs we see?
And deep Oblivion of his Woe. 6. Bur Ill on all who Ill intend
In full Proportion shall descend :
Shall feel the Weight of Pow'r divine.
Nor Time throughout its Course shall see
Second Version. Tate.
Encouragement to trust and love God.
THE Orobibeachanging Scenes of Life,
Trouble and in Joy, The Praises of my God shall still
My Heart and Tongue employ. 2 Of his Deliv'rance I will boast,
Till all who are distrest,
And charm their Griefs to Rest. 3 The Hofts of God encamp around The Dwellings of the Juft:
+ Protection he affords to all
Who make his Name their Trust. 4 O make but Trial of his Love,
Experience will decide,
Who in his Truth confide.
Have nothing else to fear;
Your Wants shall be his Care.
The Lord will Pood provide, For such as put their Trust in him,
And see their Needs supply’d.
PSALM XXXIV.. Third Version: First Part. WATTS..
God's Care of his Saints.
Thy Praise fhall dwell upon my Tongue; My Soul shall glory in thy Grace,
While Saints rejoice to hear the Song. 2 Come, magnify the Lord with me,
Come, let us all exalt his Name;
