2 But Thou, my Glory and my Strength,
Shalt on the Tempter tread,
And raise my drooping Head. 3 I cry'd ; and from his holy Hill
He bow'd a list’ning Ear :
And he subdu'd my Fear. 4
He shed soft Slumbers on mine Eyes,
That guarded my Repose. 5 What though the Hosts of Death and Hell
All arm'd against me stood, Terrors no more shall shake my
My Refuge is my God.
While I thy Glory fing :
And Death has lost his Sting. 7 Salvation to the LORD belongs;
His Arm alone can save': Blessings attend thy People here,
And reach beyond the Grave.
2 Tir'd with the Burdens of the Day,
To Thee I rais'd an Ev'ning Cry ;
And thine Almighty Help was nigh. 3 Supported by thine heav'nly Aid,
I laid me down and slept secure ;
Though I should wake and rise no more. 4 My God sustain'd me all the Night;
Salvation doth to God belong
ORD, Thou wilt hear me when I pray;
I am for ever thine;
Nor would I dare to fin.
2 And while I rest my weary Head
From Cares and Business free,
With my own Heart and Thee, 3 I pay this Evening Sacrifice;
And when my Work is done,
Upon thy Grace alone. 4 Thus with my Thoughts compos'd to Peace,
I'll give mine Eyes to fleep;
And will my Slumbers keep.

Hear and attend when I complain ;
Bow down a gracious Ear again. 2 Ye Sons of Men, in vain ye try
To turn ny Glory into Shame;
And dare reproach my SAVIOUR'S Name? 3
Know that the LORD divides his Saints
For the dear Sake of Christ who dy'd. 4
When our obedient Hands have done
And glory in his pard’ning Grace, 5
Let th’unthinking Many fay,
Our Souls desire this heav'nly Food.
At Grace and Favours fo divine :
PSA L M LORD in the Morning Thou shalt hear To Thee will I direct my Pray’r,
To Thee lift up mine Eye,
2 Up to the Hills where Christ is gone
To plead for all his Saints, Presenting at his FATHER's Throne,
Our Songs and our Complaints. 3 Thou art a God, before whose Sight The Wicked shall not stand
; Sinners shall ne'er be thy Delight,
Nor dwell at thy right Hand. 4 But to thy House will I resort,
To taste thy Mercies there ;
And worship in thy Fear.
In Ways of Righteousness! Make ev'ry Path of Duty ftrait And plain before
Shall see their Hopes fulfiilid;
With Favour as a Shield.

Mercy, ot in Wrath rebuke
Thy feeble Worm, my God;
And trembles at thy Rod.
Regard my heavy Groans ;
And heal my broken Bones.
3 My Soul quite faints, but, LORD, how long
Shall I no Answer have?
My Soul in Mercy save.
And spare my fainting Breath ;
Or sing thy Name in Death?
With Tears my Couch o'er-flows ;
Through my prevailing Foes. 6 But hence ye Enemies depart,
Nor tempt me to despair ;
Spare me, LORD, nor o'er my Head
The Fulness of thy Vengeance shed, With pitying Eye my Weakness view, Heal my vex’d Soul, my Strength renew, Permit my Pains, their Bounds to know
And fix a Period to my
Thy Servant from the greedy Grave :
