6 To all his Saints he will speak Peace,
But let them never more
T' offend him as before.
PSALM LXXXV. Fourth Version. DODDRIDGE.
God speaking Peace 10 his People.
In Silence soft and sweet :
At thy great Sov'reign's Feet. 2 Jebovah's awful Voice is heard,
Yet gladly I attend;
Friend. 3 Harmonious Accents to my Soul
The Sounds of Peace convey ; The Tempeft at his Word fublides,
And Winds and Seas obey. 4 By all its Joys, I charge my Heart,
To grieve his Love no more ;
To give its Follies o’er.
Prayer and Praise.
Behold me, I am wholly thine ;
A Soul subjected to thy Will.
To thee with fervent Lip I pray:
Thy chearing Influence im part.
I know thee, Lord, nor slow to spare,
4 Regard me, gracious; nor forbear
The Voice of my Request to hear ;
Shall boast or Pow'r or Works like thine ? -5 Behold, their Maker taught to own,
Earth's future Sons before thy Throne
To Ifrael's God their joyful Lays. 6 Eternal Excellence! Thy Hand
At Will shall Nature's Pow'rs command;
She speaks, nor owns a God beside.
And, while thy Truth my Steps shall lead, (The faithful Guide by the assign'd)
Train to thy Fear my willing Mind. 8 My Heart, by facred Zeal impellid,
To thee the grateful Song fhall yield;
loudest Praise shall share,
Prayer and Praise.
That does thy Name adore ;
Relies on thee, restore.
Thy Mercy, Lord, extend :
On thee alone depend.
But prompt to pardon too; Of plenteous Mercy to all those
Who for thy Mercy sue.
O Lord, attentive be;
For thou wilt answer me.
5 Among the Gods there's none like thee,
O Lord, alone divine:
As are their Works to thine.
The Nations shall adore;
To thy bless?d Name restore.
PA U SE
From Truth shall ne'er depart,
Devoutly fix my Heart.
Praise thee with Heart sincere ;
Eternal Trophies rear.
Pow'r to tell,
To my Adistance bring :
Thou everlasting Spring!
To me thy Servant show.;
A general Song of Praise.
2 The Nations thou hast made shall bring
Their Off'rings round thy Throne ; For thou alor.e dost wond'rous Things,
For thou art God alone. 3 Lord, I would walk with holy Feet ;
Teach me thine heav'nly Ways, And all my scatter'd Thoughts unite
In God my Father's Praise. 4 Great is thy Mercy, and my Tongue
Shall those sweet Wonders tell,
The one living and true God.
Of Earth and Seas and Worlds unknown ;
All Things depend on thee alone. 2 Thy glorious Being singly stands,
of all within itself poffeft;
To thee alone ourselves we owe; 3
Let Heav'n and Earth due Homage pay;
Deny their Claims, renounce their Sway.
Their idol Deities dethrone;
PSALM LXXXVI. Fifth Version. Carter.
The Mercy of God.
2 Did ever thy relenting Ear
The humble Plea disdain?
Or fupplicate, in vain?
In penitential Tears,
And dissipates our Fears.
Our finking Hearts receive;
To pity and forgive.
Appears serenely bright,
O’er Sorrow's dismal Night.
And bless the friendly Ray,
Of everlasting Day.
OD in his earthly Temple lays
Foundations for his heav'nly Praise :
But still in Zion loves to dwell. 2 His Mercy visits ev'ry House
That pay their Night and Morning Vows;
Where Churches meet to praise and pray. 3 What Glories were describ'd of old ?
What Wonders are of Zion told? - Thou City of our God below,
Thy Fame shall Töre and Egypt know. 4 Egypt and Tyre, and Greek and Jew,
Shall there begin their Lives anew :
