2 His reign hath no end,

His hand who can stay ?
His wisdom ne'er errs,

His truth never fails.
They are safe in his friendship,

Who walk in his way ;
To them, thro' all changes,

Still mercy prevails.

PSALM XXXI.

All men, especially Britons, calld to the praise of God. 1 LET thy various realms, O earth,

Praises yield to heaven's high Lord ;
Praise him, all of human birth,
And his wondrous acts record.

2 Health and plenty crown our land,

We have freedom, truth, and peace :
Ever bounteous is his hand ;
Never let your praises cease.

ME.

PSALM XXXII.

God our Mepherd. 1 LO, my shepherd is divine,

Care shall never more be mine;
In his pastures fair and large
He shall tend his happy charge.

2 When I faint with summer's heat

He shall lead my weary feet.
To the streams that, still and flow,

Thro’ the verdant ineadows flow. 3 He my soul anew shall frame,

And, his mercy to proclaim,
When thro' devious paths I stray,

Guide my steps the better way. 4. Tho' the dreary vale I tread

By the shades of death o’erspread,
There I walk from terror free
While protected, Lord, by thee.
5. Thou hast rais’d my drooping head,

Thou my daily table spread ;
By thee guarded from my foes.

I have sure and sweet repose.
6 Till my latest hour draws near

I will trust my fhepherd's care :
To my fuccor he will come
And conduct me safely home. ME.

PSALM XXXIII.
The true business of life, and the happy isue of a pa-

tient perfeverance in it. 1 BE this, O Lord, our business here, With serious industry and fear,

A a 2

Our

Our future bliss to ensure ;
Thine holy counsels to fulfil ;
To suffer all thy righteous will;

. And to the end endure.
2 Then, Lord, our willing souls receive,
Translated from below, to live

And reign in heaven above,
Where faith is sweetly lost in sight;
And hope, in full, supreme, delight
And everlasting love.

WE.

PSALM Xxxiv.

Universal praise.
1 PRAISE to thee, thou great creator,

Praise be thine from every tongue :
Join, my soul, with every creature,
Join the universal song.

2 For ten thousand blessings given,

For the richest gifts bestow'd
Sound his praise thro' earth and heaven,
Sound Jehovah's praise aloud.
