Not honey so invites the taste,
Appears so pleasing to the sight. 3 Thy threatenings wake my slumbering eyes, And warn me where my danger lies;
But 't is thy blessed gospel, Lord !
And gives a free, but large reward.
And from presumptuous sins restrain:
And book of nature, not in vain. 20.
God, our Defence.
Attend his people's humble cry!
And brings deliverance from on high. 2 Well he remembers all our sighs,
His love exceeds our best deserts ;
Of humble groans and broken hearts. 3 Now save us, Lord! from slavish fear,
Now let our hope be firm and strong,
And joy and triumph raise the song. 20.
Trust in God.
In trouble's darksome hour :
And shield thee by his power. 2 In thy salvation we'll rejoice,
And triumph in the Lord ;
He will relief afford.
For aid and shelter flee;
But in thy name, O Lord ! we come,
And will remember thee.
In thee alone we trust;
Thou refuge of the just ! 21.
God acknowledged in national Blessings.
Our favored realms rejoice;
To heaven their cheerful voice. 2 In deep distress, our injured land
Implored thy power to save;
The timely blessing gave.
Our hearts alone rely;
And all our wants supply.
And still exalt thy fame;
sorrows of our Lord;
And shook their heads, and laughed in scorn ;-
Till streams of blood each other meet;
And mock the pangs in which he died.
The nations learn his righteousness,
My God! support thy Son,
Oh! leave me not alone !"
With mighty cries and tears;
And chased away his fears.
His throne's exalted high ;
Shall worship-—or shall die.
His table richly spread;
With joys immortal fed.
Of our incarnate God;
Salvation in his blood.

God, our Shepherd.
Now shall my wants be well supplied :
Become my safety and my guide. 2 In pastures where salvation grows,
He makes me feed, he makes me rest;
And all the food 's divinely blest.
But he restores my soul to peace,
In the fair paths of righteousness.
Where death and all its terrors are;
My heart and hope shall never fail,
For God, my shepherd,'s with me there. 5 Surely the mercies of the Lord
Attend his household all their days;
To seek his face, and sing his praise. 23.
L. M. 6 Lines.
And feed me with a shepherd's care;
wants supply, And guard me with a watchful eye; My noon-day-walks he will attend,
And all my midnight-hours defend. 2 When in the sultry glebe I faint,
Or on the thirsty mountain pant,
Amid the verdant landscape flow.
And streams shall murmur all around.
And guide me through the dreadful shade. 23. FIRST PART, C. M.
The watchful Shepherd.
Jehovah is his name;
Beside the living stream.
When I forsake his ways;
And leads me, for his mercy's sake,
In paths of truth and grace.
Thy presence is my stay;
Drives all my fears away.
Attend me all my days;
And all my work be praise.
While others go and come ;
SECOND PART, C. M. 23.
Gratitude and Hope.
Proclaim thy joys abroad,
Supported by thy God.
His hand has been my guide ;
My heart shall still confide.
An unexhausted stream;
Shall be my endless theme.
Thy courts on earth I love;
To view thy house above.
My soul would thee adore;-
FIRST PART, S. M. 23.
The good Shepherd. 1 THE Lord my shepherd is,
I shall be well supplied :
