Fondly I said within my heart,
“ Pleasure and peace shall ne'er depart." 2 But I forgot thine arm was strong,
Which made my mountain stand so long ,
My health was gone, my comforts died. 3 I cried aloud to thee, my God!
“What canst thou profit by my blood ?
Thy truth, or sing thy goodness there? 4 "Hear me, O God of grace!" I said,
“ And bring me from among the dead :"
Thy pard’ning love removed my guilt. 5 My groans and tears, and forms of wo,
Are turned to joy and praises now;
And ease and gladness gird me round. 6 My tongue, the glory of my frame,
Shall ne'er be silent of thy name;
For sickness healed, and sins forgiven. 31.
FIRST PART, C. M.
Deliverance from Death.
My spirit I commit;
And saved me from the pit.
Though I draw near the dust;"
The God in whom I trust.
Upon thy servant shine;
For I’m entirely thine.
How wondrous is thy grace,
And trust thy promises !
2 This only can my fears control,
Let me but know my Father reigns,
5 Oh: love the Lord, all ye his saints !
And sing his praises loud;
And recompense the proud. 31.
SECOND PART, C. M. Deliverance from Slander and Reproach. 1 MY heart rejoices in thy name,
My God, my help, my trust!
Mine honor from the dust. 2 How great deliverance thou hast wrought,
Before the sons of men !
And made their boasting vain! 3 Thy children, from the strife of tongues,
Shall thy pavilion hide;
And crush the sons of pride.
Let me forever dwell;
THIRD PART, C. M.
Trust in God as a Father
I call thee mine?
portion so divine ?
I calmly would resign;
And life almost depart,
Is not thy mercy still the same,
To cheer my drooping heart?
My solace and my stay ;
God, a Reck and Fortress. 1 LORD! I look for all to thee;
Thou hast been a rock to me:
Lord ! thy blood has ransomed me. 2 Faint and sinking on my road,
Still I cling to thee, my God!
Joys still mingle with my tears. 3 On thy word I take my stand ;
All my times are in thy hand ;
Save, Oh! save thy trembling dust.
Those who make the Lord their friend!
Seek it, all ye saints! with me. 32.

Whose guilt is pardoned by his God;
And covered with his Saviour's blood. 2 From guile his heart and lips are free;

With deep repentance well agree,
And join to prove his faith sincere. 3 How glorious is that righteousness
That hides and cancels all his sins!
Through his whole life, appears and shines. 32.
SECOND PART, L. M.
Confession and Pardon.
My heavy guilt within my heart,
What agonies of inward smart!
And all my secret faults confess;

When days grow dark and storms appear! And when I walk, thy watchful eye
Shall guide me safe from every snare. 32.

And ready pardon found.

“Our help, in times of deep distress,
Is found in God alone.
FIRST PART, C. M. 33.
Works of Creation and Providence. 1 REJOICE, ye righteous ! in the Lord;
This work belongs to you;
How holy, just, and true!
Let heaven and earth proclaim ;
Reveal his wondrous name.
The heavenly arches spread ;
Their shining hosts were made. 4 He bade the liquid waters flow
To their appointed deep;
And their own station keep.
With fear before him stand:
And rests on his command.
And breaks their vain designs;
SECOND PART, C. M.
Creatures rain, and God all-sufficient. 1 BLEST is the nation, where the Lord
Has fixed his gracious throne; Where he reveals his heavenly word,
And calls the tribes his own.
Does the whole world behold ,
And knows our feeble mould.
When plagues or famine spread;
