PSALMS AND HYMNS,
TO BE SUNG IN THE PARISH CHURCH OF
"Sing ye Praises with understanding."
"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom,
PSALM I. C. M.
TOW blest is he, who ne'er consents
HBy ill advice to walk;
Nor stands in sinners' ways, nor sits
But makes the perfect law of God
Like some fair tree, which, fed by streams
Ungodly men, and their attempts,
But God approves the just man's ways: To happiness they tend;
While sinners, and the paths they tread, Shall both in ruin end.
PSALM II. C. M.
YHY fiercely rage the nations round
Against Jehovah Kings arise,
And Christ forbid to reign.
"Come let us break their chains, say they, And make their fetters fly;'
But scorn attends their vain attempt,
Then shall they hear his awful voice,
Ye rebels cease-My king shall reign
The Lord's decree I thus proclaim,
At thy request shall nations great
And earth's remotest climes submit
PSALM HII. C. M.
HOU art, O Lord, my sure defence,
T On thee my hopes rely;
Thou art my glory, and shall yet
Guarded by thee, I laid me down
Salvation to the Lord belongs;
His blessings he extends to all
PSALM V. C. M.
ORD hear the voice of my complaint,
My King! my God! accept my pray❜r,
Thou when the morning sheds its beams,
To thee the dawn I'll dedicate,
With thy unbounded mercy blest,
And bow before thy sacred throne,
