And with repeated hymns of praise
His Name to magnify!

2 With every morning's early dawn
His goodness to relate;
And of his constant truth each night
The glad effects repeat !

3 To ten-string'd instruments we'll sing,
With tuneful psalt'ries join'd;

And to the harp with solemn sounds,
For sacred use design'd.

4 For through thy wondrous works, O Lord, Thou mak❜st my heart rejoice;

The thoughts of them shall make me glad,
And shout with cheerful voice.


1 BLESS'D is the man, whom thou, O Lord,

In kindness dost chastise,

And by thy sacred rules to walk
Dost lovingly advise:

2 This man shall rest and safety find
In seasons of distress,

Whilst God prepares a pit for those
That stubbornly transgress.

3 For God will never from his saints
His favour wholly take;

His own possession and his lot
He will not quite forsake.

4 The world shall then confess thee just
In all that thou hast done;

And those who choose thy upright ways,
Shall in those paths go on.


10 Come, loud anthems let us sing, Loud thanks to our Almighty King;

For we our voices high should raise
When our salvation's rock we praise.
2 Into his presence let us haste,
To thank him for his favours past;
To him address, in joyful songs,
The praise that to his Name belongs.

3 For God, the Lord, enthron'd in state,
Is with unrivall'd glory great;
A King, superior far to all

Whom gods the heathen falsely call.

4 O let us to his courts repair,
And bow with adoration there;
Down on our knees devoutly all
Before the Lord our Maker fall.


1 SING ye with praise unto the Lord
New songs with joy and mirth,

Sing unto him with one accord,
All people on the earth.

2 Yea, sing unto the Lord alway,
Praise ye his holy Name,

Declare and shew from day to day
Salvation by the same.

3 Among the heathen all declare
His honour round about;
To shew his wonders do not spare
In all the world throughout.

4 For why? the Lord is great in might
And worthy of all praise,
And he is to be fear'd of right
Above all gods always.



JEHOVAH reigns, let all the earth
In his just government rejoice;

Let all the isles, with sacred mirth,
In his applause unite their voice.

2 You, who to serve this Lord aspire,
Abhor what's ill, and truth esteem ;
He'll keep his servants' souls entire,

And them from wicked hands redeem

3 For seeds are sown of glorious light,
A future harvest for the just;
And gladness for the heart that's right,
To recompense its pious trust,

4 Rejoice, ye righteous, in the Lord;
Memorials of his holiness

Deep in your faithful breasts record,

And with your thankful tongues confess.


1 SING to the Lord a new made song,
Who wondrous things has done;

With his right hand and holy arm
The conquest he has won.

2 The Lord has through th' astonish'd world, Display'd his saving might,

And made his righteous acts appear
In all the heathen's sight.

3 With harp and hymn's soft melody
Into the concert bring ;

The trumpet and shrill cornet's sound,
Before th' Almighty King:

4 To welcome down the world's great Judge, Who does with justice come,

And with impartial equity
Both to reward and doom.


1 JEHOVAH reigns, let therefore all
The guilty nations quake:

On cherub's wings he sits enthron'd;
Let earth's foundation shake.

2 On Sion's hill he keeps his court,
His palace makes her tow'rs;
Yet thence his sov'reignty extends
Supreme o'er earthly pow'rs.

3 Let therefore all with praise address
His great and dreadful name;

And with his unresisted might
His holiness proclaim.

4 Therefore exalt the Lord our God,
Before his footstool fall ;

And with his unresisted might
His holiness extol.

PSALM 100.

WITH one consent let all the earth
To God their cheerful voices raise;
Glad homage pay with awful mirth,
And sing before him songs of praise.
2 Convinc'd that he is God alone,
From whom both we and all proceed;
We, whom he chooses for his own,
The flock that he vouchsafes to feed.
3 O enter then his temple gate,

Thence to his courts devoutly press,
And still your grateful hymns repeat,
And still his Name with praises bless.
4 For he's the Lord, supremely good,
His mercy is for ever sure:
His truth, which always firmly stood,
To endless ages shall endure.



ALL people that on earth do dwell,

Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice: Him serve with fear, his praise forth tell, Come ye before him and rejoice.
