Psalm xci. 1 HE that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most- | High, I shall abide under the
| shadow--of | the Al- | mighty. 2 I will say of the Lord, he is my refuge / and my | fortress, I my God, in | him-1
will I trust. 3 Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, l even the Most | High,
thy | habi- / tation, 4 There shall no evil be-| fall- | thee, 1 neither shall any | plague come / nigh thy |
dwelling 5 For he shall give his angels charge I over / thee, Il to keep thee--in / all thy | ways. 6 They shall bear thee up | in their | hands, | lest thou dash thy | foot a-l gainst a |
stone. 7 Thou shalt tread upon the | lion and adder; | the young lion and the dragon shalt
thou | trample, under | feet. 8 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I de- | liver | him: 1 I will set
him on high, because he hath | known my | Name. 9 He shall call upon me, and I will I answer | him: || I will be with him in trouble; I
will deliver | him, and I honor | him. 10 With long life will I | satis- | fy him, I and I show him | my sal- | vation.
Psalm cxxi. 1 I WILL lift up mine eyes un- | to the hills, I from | whence- I cometh --my I help. ; 2 My help cometh | from the | Lord, I who | made- | heaven and earth. 3 He will not suffer thy foot | to be I moved! | he that I keepeth--thee I will not |
slumber. 4 Behold, he that keepeth | Is-ra- | el, I shall not | slum- - | ber nor | sleep. 5 The Lord | is thy | keeper; | the Lord is thy shade up-1 on thy | right- | hand. 6 The sun shall not smite / thee by | day, || nor the moon | by- | night. ✓ The Lord shall preserve thee | from all | evil; I he shall pre-/ serve thy | soul. 8 The Lord shall preserve thy going out, and thy I coming in, I from this time forth,
and | even--for ever- | more.

1 LORD, thou hast | been our | dwelling-place 1 in / all-gener- / ations. 2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth | and
the | world, | even from everlasting to everlasting, I thou-| art- | God. 3 Thou turnest man to de- / struction ; | and sayest, Re- I turn, ye | children --of 4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when I it is | past, 1 and |
as a l vatch--in the night. 5 Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are l as a | sleep: | ja the morning
they are like | grass which | groweth | up. 6 In the morning it flourisheth, and I groweth | up; I in the evening it is cut | down
and | wither-1 eth. 7 For we are consumed | by thine / anger, and by thy | wrath-- | are we | troubled. 8 Thou hast set our iniquities be-l fore- | thee, our secret sins in the light of 1
thy- | countenance. 9 For all our days are passed away | in thy | wrath; } we spend our years | as a |
tale--that is I told. 10 The days of our years are threescore 1 years and ten; 1 and if by reason of
strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labor and sorrow; for it is
soon cut off, I and we fly a- I way. 11 Who knoweth the power of thine | anger? | even according to thy fear, som -1
is thy | wrath. 12 So teach us to I number--Our | days, | that we may apply our hearts- | unto |
wisdom. 13 Return, O Lord, how | long? | and let it repent | thee con- | cerning--thy i
servants. 14 0 satisfy us early | with thy I mercy; I that we may rejoice and be / glad-1
all our days. 15 Make us glad according to the days wherein | thou -- hast af-| flicted us, I and the
years wherein we have seen--evil. 16 Let thy work appear un- | to thy | servants, and thy I glory un-| to their |
children; *17 And let the beauty of the Lord our God | be up-on us: 1 and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands, es- | tablish thou | it.

Psalm xxiii. 1 THE Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want ; | he maketh me to lie down in green
pastures; he leadeth me beside the still- | waters. : He restoreth my soul; he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's-1
sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear
no evil, for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff / they- | comfort me. 3 Thou preparest a table before me, in the presence of mine enemies; thou anointest
my head with oil; my | cup --runneth lover. ! Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for- I ever. | A- | men.

rest. 2 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and I lowly--in | heart: 1
and ye shall find | rest --unto | your- | souls. 3 For my yoke is easy, and my | burden--is | light, 1 for my yoke is easy, I and my |
burden--is | light. 4 And the Spirit and the Bride say, Come. And let him that I heareth, --say, Come. I
And let him that is athirst come; and whosoever will, let him take the water of | life- | freely. A-l men.
