vided them an inheritance by line, and made the tribes to dwell in their tents.

WE have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us, what deeds thou didst in their days, in the times of old.

How thou didst drive out the nations with thy hand, and plantedst them; how thou didst afflict the people, and cast them out.

For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them, but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favor unto them.

O, GIVE thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people. Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works.

Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord.

Seek the Lord, and his strength: seek his face


Remember his marvellous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth; When our fathers were but a few in number; yea, very few, and strangers in the land.

When they went from one nation to another, fron one kingdom to another people;

He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes;

Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.

And he increased his people greatly; and made them stronger than their enemies.

And he brought them forth with joy, and his chosen with gladness:

And gave them the lands of the nations, and they inherited the labor of the people;

That they might observe his statutes, and keep his laws.

TURN us again, O God of hosts, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.

Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt: thou hast cast out nations and planted it.

Thou preparedst room before it, and didst cause it to take deep root, and it filled the land.

The hills were covered with the shadow of it, and the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedars.

It sent out its boughs unto the sea, and its branches unto the river.

Return, we beseech thee, O God of hosts: look down from heaven, and behold, and visit this vine;

And the vineyard which thy right hand hath planted, and the branch that thou madest strong for thyself.

So will not we go back from thee: quicken us, and we will call upon thy name.

Turn us again, O Lord God of hosts, cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.

Now unto the King eternal, immortal, and invisi ble, the only wise God,

Be honor and glory, through Jesus Christ, for ever and ever. Amen.


(Psalms 30 and 77.)


I WILL extol thee, O Lord; for thou hast lifted me up. O Lord my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.

O Lord, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the tomb.

Sing unto the Lord, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

For his anger endureth but a moment, but his favor for life; weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

I CRY unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; O that he would hear me !

In the day of my trouble I seek the Lord: I

stretch out my hand in the night and cease not: my soul refuses to be comforted.

I remember God, and am troubled: I complain, and my spirit is overwhelmed.

I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times,

I call to remembrance my song in the night: 1 commune with mine own heart: and my spirit makes diligent search.

Will the Lord cast off for ever? and will he be favorable no more?

Is his mercy clean gone

ise fail for evermore?

for ever? doth his prom

Hath God forgotten to be gracious? hath he in anger shut up his tender mercies ?

And I said, This is my infirmity: but I will remember the years of the right hand of the Most High.

I will remember the works of the Lord: surely I will remember thy wonders of old.

I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings.

Thy way, O God, is holy: who is so great a God as our God!

Thou art the God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy strength among the people.

Thou hast with thine arm redeemed thy people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph.

The waters saw thee, O God, the waters saw thee; they were afraid the depths also were troubled.

The clouds poured out water: the skies sent out a sound: thine arrows also went abroad.

The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven: the lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook.

Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.

Thou leddest thy people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.

Now unto the King eternal, immortal, and invisible, the only wise God,

Be honor and glory, through Jesus Christ, for ever and ever. Amen.


(Psalms 68 and 18.)


LET God arise, and his enemies are scattered: and they that hate him flee before him.

But the righteous are glad; they rejoice before God: yea, they exceedingly rejoice.

Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth through the wilderness; Jehovah is his name; rejoice before him.

A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.
