7 Jesus, whom heaven and earth adore,
gone before; Our wand'ring feet no more shall stray, But mark his steps and keep the way.
PSALM 86. C. M.
For at thy feet I bow,
And hear thy servant now.
And set my spirit free,
I put my trust in thee.
He doth their sins forgive; Low at his feet they humbly fall,
Low at his feet they live.
And sent the heavenly gift;
And his relief was swift.
By mercies freely shown,
And make his wonders known. 6 Should sorrow darken all my sky
I'll set mine heart at rest,
PSALM 86. L. M.
God greater than princes. I AMONG the powers of high command,
No power, O Lord, can stay thy hand,
They neither rule by right divine,
Nor are their ways and works like thine. 2 The nations thou hast made shall know
Thy sovreign right to rule below;
And bring new subjects to thy realm: :3 Great is the Lord, his power alone
Supports. the splendor of his throne;
His arm alone. does wond'rous things., 4. Teach us, O Lord, thy perfect way,
And guide us lest we turn astray;
Encrease our faith, our love inflame. 5 Awake, my soul, tune every chord
To praise my Savior and my Lord,
And sav'd me from the brink of hell. 6 The proud in power attempt in vain
To bind the conscience in their chain;
volitions* of the mind. 7 The Lord my Savior strong and near,
For my salvation will appear;
Can shake. my confidence in God. - 8 Show me some token, Lord, from thee,
And let my foes, who hate me, see,
PSALM 87. Part 1. L. M.
The church immoveable. 1 THE church, O God, shall ever stand, The bulwark of our native land, * Volition, the act of willing.
Establish'd on the 'eternal Rock,
Its solid base endures the shock.
Are built on God's unchanging love;
For God the builder cannot change. 3 Outrageous foes in vain combine,
No plots the church can undermine,
The gates of hell shall ne'er prevail. 4 Consuming fire, corroding* time!
Destroy the works of stone and lime;
Shall fire and time defiance bid.
Has thrown extensive empires down;
Is favor'd with thy cheering smile.
And earth itself become a wreck;
His word of truth amid the storms. 7 Rejoice, ye saints, for Zion's wall
Shall rise when kings and kingdoms fall;
PSALM 87. Part 2. L. M.
Thy tents, O Jaco's, God approves,
a solid pile, a durable pillar of a peculiar form.
2 His grace accepts the worship now,
When houses at his footstool bow;.
Where churches meet to praise and pray. 3 What glories were describ'd of old,
What wonders are of Zion told,
Thy fame shall Tyre and Egypt know. 4 Egypt and Tyre and Greek and Jew,
Shall there begin their lives anew;
The hill where living waters spring. 5 No more shall Zion seem forlorn,
In her shall thousands yet be born;
Will bless her gates with large increase. 6 This man, who plays the tuneful lyre,
Was born the first, they say, at Tyre;
He's born a second time in her.
Of natives in his holy mount,
PSALM 88. As the 113.
L088 of friends and relatives.
From day to night my cries ascend,
* To aver, to declare, to affirm,
2 I seem as one whom men commit
DevoidTM of strength and power to save,
And hold converse with every grave. 3 Thine hand, O God, has laid me low, The waves of sorrow o'er me flow,
In darkness and the dismal deep;
While I survive alone to weep.
When death dissolves my mortal frame?
A living song to bless thy name?
The tempest roars, the billows roll.
For happier days await his saints;
PSALM 89. Part 1. L. M.
The covenant made with Christ.
