PSALM 1. Version 1. (C. M.)
The blessedness of the Righteous.
1. BLEST is the man who shuns the place,
Where sinners love to meet;
And dreads the scorner's seat. 2. The word of God is his delight,
There all his thoughts abide;
By day his constant guide. 3. As some fair tree, whose roots are spread
Where living streams abound,
With fruitful clusters crown'd: 4. So shall the trees of righteousness,
The planting of the Lord,
Their timely fruit afford.
And crowns with endless days:
They perish in their ways.
Psalm 1. Version 11. (L. M.!! 1. BLEST is the man who fears to stray
Where the ungodly lead the way;
Nor with the scorner takes his seat. 2. His mind renew'd the law approves,
His heart the sacred precept loves;
There rests its happiest thoughts by night. 3. His works shall prosper :-he shall be
A fruitful, fair, unwith’ring tree,
Nor drought, nor frost, nor mildew knows. 4. Not so the wicked ;-they are cast
Like chaff upon the eddying blast :
Psalm 2. Part 1. (c. M.)
The Sovereignty of Messiah.
1. WHY do the nations madly rage,
Before Jehovah's throne;
Against th’anointed One?
Shall all their threats deride;
And crush their haughty pride.
3. The Lord hath said," I set my king
“ On Zion's holy hill :
“And do his sovereign will." 4. Attend, ye Powers ! confess your Lord,
And bow before his face :
How blest who seek his grace!
Christ interceding and reigning. 1. CHRIST is ascended high,
And asks to rule the earth : The merit of his blood he pleads,
And pleads his heavenly birth. 2. He asks, and God bestows
" A large inheritance:
His kingdom shall advance. 3. The nations that rebel
Must feel his iron rod :
Which he receiv'd from God. 4. Be wise ye Rulers now,
And worship at his throne:
To God's exalted Son. 5. If once his wrath arise,
Ye perish on the place :
For refuge to his grace.
Psalm 3. (c. M.)
Doubts and fears suppressed. 1. MY God how many are my
fears! How fast my foes increase ! Conspiring my eternal death,
They break my present peace.
Shalt on the tempter tread ;-
And raise my drooping head. 3. I cry'd, and from his holy hill
The Lord inclin'd his ear :
And he subdu'd my fear.
In spite of all my foes;
That guarded my repose.
All arm'd against me stood ?
My refuge is my God.
PSALM 4. Version 1. (C. M.)
Rejoicing in the Lord.
To my requests give ear;
Have mercy, Lord, and hear.
2. While worldly minds impatient grow
More prosp'rous times to see,
Shine brightly, Lord, on me.
More lasting and more true
And take my needful rest;
Of thy defence possest.
For Evening. 1. WHEN shades of night around me spread,
I'll all my ways rehearse,
heart converse. 2. To God my sacrifice shall rise
Of righteousness and praise;
And pleads the Saviour's grace. 3. “Where, where shall any good be found ?”
The thoughtless many cry:
And lift my triumphs high.
Hath here confirm'd its choice :
Such pure and lasting joys.
