First Version. Second Part.
Peace and Joy the natural Consequence of a rational manly
Thy Feet, thy ev'ry Step he scan,
Let Reason's Use bespeak thee Man; 2 Nor imitate the Steed and Mule,
Whose brutal Mouth, averse to rule,
The forceful Rein, and curbing Steel. 3 What Pangs the impious Tribe await,
While Hope and Joy his Heart dilate,
And Mercy round him spreads her Wings! 4 Ye Saints, exulting lift your Voice,
Ye pure of Mind, in him rejoice,
PSALM XXXII. Second Version. TATE,
The Blefedness of true Penitents.
No more in Judgment to appear ;
And whose Repentance is fincere. 2 True Penitents with God succeed,
Who seek him while he may be found,
Shall them encompass all around 3 In his Instruction then confide,
You who would Truth's safe Path descry;
And keep you in his watchful Eye.
Like Men who Reason have attain'd:
Sorrows on Sorrows multiply'd,
The choicest Blessings shall surround.
Their Life in Triumphs shall employ:
PSALM XXXII. Third Version. First Part. Watts,
LEST is the Man, for ever bleft,
Whose Guilt is pardon'd by his God, Whose Sins with Sorrow are confess’d,
Who firmly walks the heav'nly Road. 2 Bleft is the Man to whom the Lord
Imputes not his Iniquities,
His lowly Soul on Grace relies.
His humble Joy, his holy Fear
And join to prove his Faith sincere.
Which freely pardons all his Sin!
PSALM XXXII. Third Version. Second Part.
HILE I keep Silence and conceal
My heavy Guilt within my Heart, What Torments doth my Conscience feel!
What Agonies of inward Smart ! 2 I spread my Sins before the Lord,
And all my secret Faults confess
Fierce Fire lay burning in my Breast,
Thyʻpard’ning Grace forgave my Faults,
When like a raging Flood
For this shall ev'ry humble Soul
PSALM XXXII. Fourth Version.
No more imputes his Sin,
Who Peace enjoys within.
Whose Debts are all discharg'd;
He feels his Soul enlarg'd.
His Words are all fincere;
To keep his Conscience clear.
Sharp Arrows pierc'd my Mind,
My secret Sins reveal'd ;
Fifth Version. WATTS.
Whose Sins are cover'd o'er!
to whom the Lord Imputes their Guilt no more!
They mourn their Follies past,
Shall prove their Faith fincere.
While 1 conceal'd my Guilt,
I felt the felt'ring Wound,
And ready Pardon found.
Let Sinners learn to pray,
Let Saints keep near the Throne; 133 + Our Help in Times of deep Distress
Is found in God alone.
PSALM XXXIII. First Verfion. First Part. MERRICK
Creation and Providence.
And Praise fíts comely on your Tongues ;)
To God, some new-invented Song.
His Promises in Aet fulfill'd
The Gifts that from his Bounty flow.
E’er Time the Seasons onward led;
Their unextinguish'd Lustre boaft.
And let thy Sons with holy Fear
And duteous his Decrees attend.
Thy Counsel only shall endure;
With sure Effect, great God, be crown'd.
Thee, Lord, their God, and thee alone;-
First Version. Second Part.
Creatures vain, and God all-suficient.
The Pow'r eternal from on high
Each A&t, each Thought, attentive views. 2 In vain with conscious Pride the Steed
Vaunts in the Fight his Strength and Speed;
His Arm with active Vigor strung:
Of him who builds on thee his Trust;
When Drought infests the blasted Plains.
With patient Hope have stood upheld;
From thee shall Joy perpetual find. 6 That Joy to our desiring Heart
O let thy Mercy e'er impart;
PSALM XXXIII. Second Version. TATE.
The Works of Creation and Providence.
Their chearful Voices raise,
To sing glad Songs of Praise.
In joyful Consort meet;
The Harmony compleat.
