shall see remorseless Sinners drown'd, 6 Thy Favour, Lord, in al Distress,
my Tow'r of Refuge I must own;
to fing ģlad Songs of Praile. 2 Let Harps, and Psalteries, and Lutes,
in joyful Concert meet; And new-made Songs of loud Applaufe
2 the Harmony complete. 3 For faithful is the Word of God,
his Works with Truth abound; · He Justice loves; and all the Earth
is with his Goodness crown'd. 4 Our Souls on God with Patience wait;
our Help and Shield is he; Then, Lord, let ftill our Hearts rejoice,
because we trust in thee, 5 The Riches of thy Mercy, Lord,
do thou to us extend; Since
we, for all we want or with, on thee alone depend.
PSALM XXXIV. 1 "HRO’ all the changing Scenes of Life, in Trouble and in Joy ;
The Praises of my God shall still
my Heart and Tongue employ. 2 Of his Deliv'rance I will boast,
'till all that are distress’d,
and charm their Griefs to rest. 3 O! magnify the Lord with me,
with me exalt his Name : When in Distress to him I callid,
he to my Rescue came.

his Service your Delight, he'll make your Wants his Care.

and prosp'rous Days would see, From Nand'ring Language keep his Tongue,
his Lips from Falthood free. 3 The crooked Paths of Vice decline,
and Virtue's Ways pursue ;
Establish Peace, where 'tis begun;
and where 'tis loft, renew. 4 The Lord from Heav'n beholds the Just
with favourable Eyes;

PSA L M XXXVI. O
Lord, thy Mercy, my sure Hope,
the highest Orb of Heav'n transcends ; Thy sacred Truth's unmeasur'd Scope
beyond the spreading Sky extends. 2 Thy Justice, like the Hills, remains ;
unfathom'd Depths thy Judgments are; Thy Providence the World sustains;
the whole Creation is thy Care. 3 Since of thy Goodness all partake,
with what Assurance should the Just Thy shelt'ring Wings their Refuge make,
and Saints to thy Protection trust!
4 Such Guefts fhall to thy Courts be led,
to tanquet on thv Love's Repast; And drink, astrom a Fountain's Head,
of Joys that shall for ever last. 5 With thee the Springs of Life remain;
thy Presence is eternal Day; O! let thy Saints thy Favour gain;
to uj right Hearts thy Truth display.
PSA L M XXXVI, O. V. i Lord, thy Goodness doth ascend
above the Heav'ns most high: So doth thy Truth itself extend
unto the cloudy Sky. 2 Much more than Hills both high and steep,
thy Justice is exprelt; Thy Judgments like the Seas most deep,
thou fav ft both Man and Beast. 3 Thy Merey is above all Things,
O God, it doth excel :
the Sons of Men thall dwell.
with Plenty at their Will:
and take thereof their Fill.
doth cver flow from thee :
eternal Light to see
6 From such as thee defire to know,
let not thy Grace depart:
to Men of upright Heart.
Yet let not their successful State
Whole blooming Beauty loon decays.
Secure from Danger and from Want:
Shall all thy earnest Wishes grant. 3 In all thy Ways trust thou the Lord, And he will needful Help afford
To perfect ev'ry just Design:
