Concluding Hymns 65-75, 95, 96, 129-134, 147-150, 173, 181, 193, 201-204, 206, 207, 214, 215, 220, 235, 239-241, 243, 246-248, 252.
The righteous and the wicked contrasted.
1 HOW blest is he who ne'er consents
Nor stands in sinners' ways, nor sits
2 But makes the perfect law of God
3 Like some fair tree, which, fed by streams, With timely fruit doth bend,
He still shall flourish, and success
All his designs attend.
4 Not so the ungodly, they, alas !
For they are driven away like dust,
1 ATTEND, Q earth, whilst I declare A God's uncontroll'd decrees y V "Thou art my son, this day my heirq I "Have I begotten thee vt no bíA
"Ask and receive thy full demands; "Thine shall the heathen be;
"The utmost limits of the lands
"Shall be possess'd by thee."
Be wise, ye rulers of the earth,
Adore the King of heavenly birth,
And tremble at his word.
With humble love address his throne;
For if he frown, ye die:
Those are secure, and those alone,
Confidence in God.
THOU, Lord, art my secure defence,
Thou art my glory and my help
Guarded by thee, I laid me down
For I through thee securely sleep,

I plead thy righteousness alone,
Oft has that grace enlarg'd my heart,
While many wrapt in nature's night

"Tis all that I desire.
In peace I lay me down to sleep;
For the Lord's Day Morning.
LORD, in the morning thou shalt hear
To thee will I direct my prayer,
Oft to thy house will I resort,
O may thy Spirit guide my feet
All they who love and fear thy name
The mighty God will compass them

1 IN tender mercy, not in wrath,
2 Touch'd by thy Spirit's quickening power, Our load of guilt we feel;
The wounds thy Spirit hath unclos'd,
3 Oppress'd with Satan's galling yoke,
And wilt thou not at length, O God,
4 O come with speed, ere life expire,
5 Why should our souls distrust thy grace,
PSALM 8. VERSION 1.
The wonders of creation and redemption.
10 THOU, to whom all creatures bow
Through all the world how great art thou!
2 When heaven, thy beauteous work on high, Employs my wondering sight,
The moon that nightly rules the sky,
