PSALMS AND HYMNS.
PSALM I. 1
Nor sits the innocent to' arraign ;
Oppressive in the scorner's chair.
To do the pleasure of his Lord:
To search his soul.converting word:
The perfect law of life and love."
He, as a pleasant plant, shall grow;
And all his blooming honours show;
And fruit unto perfection bear.
His works of faith shall never cease;
Whom God himself delights to bless :
Scatter'd like chal before the wind. 5 No portion and no place have they With those whom God vouchsafes to' approve;
Cast in the dreadful judgment-day,
Who trample on their Saviour's love;
1 TAHY do the Jews and Gentiles join,
VV To execute a vain design;
And storm with unavailing rage?
The rulers list themselves his foes,
And slay the incarnate Deity.
And Jesus, his anointed Son;
And reign Almighty in his stead.
Enthron'd in everlasting love,
And laugh to scorn their furious pride.
And vex his baffled enemies;
“ And plac'd him on his Father's throne: 6 66 Wherefore to him, ye kings submit,
66 Be wise to fall, and kiss his feet:
“ Ye rulers of the earth obey.
« Lest you in anger he disown,
“ And leave you in your sins to die.
" All good, Almighty to redeem !
« They only shall his mercy prove, : « Lovid with an everlasting love."
A HYMN. 1 ANOTHER day preserv'd by grace,
A We end it with our Saviour's praise,
Come, take your stand around our bed. 2 We soon shall wake with you to sing, .
In presence of our heavenly King;
Shall endless ages roll away.
Mark the troublers of my peace,
Heaven, they say, its help denies , ' “ Help he seeks from God in vain,
6 God hath given him up to man.” 2 But thou art a shield for me,
Succour, still, I find in thee;.
Strong in thine Omnipotence. 3 To the Lord I cried; the cry
Brought my Helper from the sky;
4 Kept by him, I cannot fear
Sin, the world, or Satan near;
Save me, O my God, from all. 5 Thou hast sav'd me heretofore,
Thou hast quell'd the adverse power,
Save me, save me to the end. 8 Thine it is, O Lord, to save,
Strength in Thee, thy people have; !.

UT Tby humble suppliant hear, 'Thou hast reliev'd me in distress,
And thou art always near:
The peaceful answer send,

And follow after lies ?
