2 A Crowd, whose Thoughts from Thee have stray'd,
With Falsehood arm’d, my Peace invade ;
Shake to its inmost Depth my Soul.
Its vain Inquietude express’d) “ The Dove's light Wing, that through the Air
“ A wretched Fugitive may bear. 4
“ How would I mount the wafting Wind, « How leave the wrathful Storms behind, 66 And in the Desert's lone Retreat,
“ Contented, fix my lasting Seat ?" 5 But God (my only Refuge) He
From each Distress my Soul shall free;
At Dawn, at Noon, at Close of Day.' 6 O cast thee fearless on thy God;
He (strong to save) the grateful Load
THOU whofe Justice reigns on higli,
And makes th' Oppressor cease,
Peace. 2 The Sons of Violence and Lies
Join to devour me, LORD; But as my hourly Dangers rife,
My Refuge is thy Word.
3 In God most Holy, Just and True,
I have repos'd my Trust;
The Offspring of the Duft. 4 They wrest my Words to Mischief still,
Charge me with unknown Faults;
And Malice all their Thoughts. 5 Shall they escape without thy Frown?
Must their Devices stand ?
And let him know thy Hand.
6 GOD counts the Sorrows of his Saints,
Their Groans affect his Ears ;Thou hast a Book for my Complaints,
A Bottle for my Tears.
The Wicked fear and flee;
So near is God to me.
8 In Thee, most Holy, Just and True,
I have repos'd my Trust;
The Offspring of the Duft.
Thou shalt receive my Praise;
“ How righteous all thy Ways!”
10 Thou haft fecur'd my Soul from Death;
O set thy Pris'ner free :
May be employ'd for Thee.
Y God, in whom are all the Springs
Of boundless Love and Grace unknown; Hide me beneath thy spreading Wings, Till the dark Cloud is overblown.
2 Up to the Heav'ns I send my Cry,
The LORD will my Defires perform;
And saves me from the threatning Storm, 3 Be Thou exalted, O my God,
Above the Heav'ns where Angels dwell!
And Land to Land thy Wonders tell,
Immortal Honours to thy Name;
My Tongue, the Glory of my Frame! 5 High o'er the Earth his Mercy reigns,
And reaches to the utmost Sky;
6 Bę Thou exalted, O my God,
Above the Heav'ns where Angels dwell !
UDGES, who rule the World by Laws,
Will ye despise the righteous Cause,
While Gold and Greatness bribe your Hands? g Have ye forgot, or never knew, That God will judge the Judges too?
High in the Heav'ns his Justice reigns;
To bind the Conscience in your Chains, 3 Th’ ALMIGHTY thunders from the Sky! Their Grandeur melts, their Titles die,
As Hills of Snow dissolve and run;
Vain Births that never see the Sun.
And All that hear shall join and say, ~ Sure there's a God that rules on high, 66 A God that hears his Children cry,
“ And will their Suff’rings well repay.”
AVE me, O Lord, my gracious GOD,
From my determin's Foes; In my Desence oppose thy Pow'r
To theirs who me oppole.
2 On Thee I wait, 'tis on thy Strength
For Succour I depend : 'Tis Thou, O God, art my Defence,
Who only canft defend.
From Danger set me free,
My haughty Foes to me.
Thy wondrous Pow'r confefs;
My Refuge in Distress.
O God, my Strength I'll ling:
My Health and Safety spring..

EPULS’D, dispers’d, chastis'd by Theey 0
grant us, LORD, thy Face to fee; And let the People, once thy Care, Again thy fav'ring Presence share.
2 How trembles this divided Land
Beneath the Terrors of thy Hand!
3 Thy just Decrees to Ifrael's Eyes
Have bid a Scene of Sorrow rise;
