PSALMS OF DAVID.
PSALM 1. C. M.
And evil ne'er commits;
Nor with the scoffer sits.
The law is his delight,
· And meditates by night.
Where living water flows,
And prosper as he grows.
Shall his profession shine;
Like clusters on the vine.
What yain designs they form;
Like chaff before the storm.
Among the sons of grace,
Appoints his saints a place.
Is known to Jesus well;
PSALM 1. S. M.
Who walks not with his foes;
And with the righteous goes. 2 The ways of sin abhor'd
Afford him no delight,
He reads by day and night. 3 He, like a thrifty tree,
Abounds with choicest fruits, And grace, like rivers, full and free,
The sap of life recruits. 4 The 'ungodly are not so;
But sinners unforgiven,
Before the wind is driven. *5 How will they bear to stand
Before that judgment-seat,
In full assembly meet?
The way of virtue knows,
PSALM 1. L. M.
Avoid the place where sinners meet;
Nor with the scoffer proudly sits. 2 The law is his divine delight,
He reads its precepts day and night;
And while his soul on Jesus rests
He well the sacred text digests.
Near where some gentle river flows,
Shall fertilize the growing tree.
No long continuing peace of mind;
So all their hope of glory fies.
In judgment, when with stern command
Shall thus to sorrow doom them down. 6 " My saints the way to glory. trod,
The narrow way that leads to God;
PSALM 2. S. M.
The kingdom of Christ. | WHY do the heathen rage,
Till Christ their Lord be slain?
To ’attempt a thing so vain? 2 Combin'd to tread him down,
The kings in council say, “ Come, let us trample on his crown,
And cast his laws away." 3 The Lord of glory smild
And laugh'd his foes to scorn, Who rag'd against his holy child,
The mighty Savior born, 4 He spake, and vext them sore,
Who did the Son provoke;
Loud as his awful thunders roar,
The 'almighty Father spoke! 5 “ On Zion's heavenly hill
His throne shall ever stand,
Shall ne'er possess the land. & I've made a firm decree,
He's mine anointed one;
O my beloved Son.
To thee shall look and live;
For earth is mine to give. 8 Thou shalt the rebels quell,
And rule with iron rod,
That dare to 'oppose their God." 9 Be wise, ye judges, now,
And serve the Lord with fear;
His word with trembling hear, 10 Accept his offer'd love,
With faith and reverent awe,
Submission to his law. 11 But if you disobey,
You perish on the place;
PSALM 2. C. M.; ,
With unrelenting strife?
