PSALM CXLVIII.

[ocr errors]

Praise ye the Lord. Praise ye the Lord from the heavens: praise him in the heights.

Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts.

Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.

Praise him, ye heavens of heavens: and ye waters that be above the heavens.

Let them praise the name of the Lord : for he commanded, and they were created.

He hath also stablished them for ever and ever: he hath made a decree which shall not pass.

Fire and hail; snow and vapours: stormy wind fulfilling his word :

Mountains, and all hills : fruitful trees, and all cedars;

Beasts, and all cattle : creeping things, and flying fowl;

Kings of the earth, and all people: princes, and all judges of the earth;

Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children;

Let them praise the Name of the Lord : for his
Name alone is excellent; his glory is above the
earth and heaven.
Praise

ye

the Lord.

Acquaint thyself with God, and be at peace with Him: and lay up His words in thine heart.

If thou return to the Almighty, put away iniquity from thee.

Then shall He be thy defence, and thy delight: thou shalt make thy prayer unto Him, and He will hear thee.

The Lord will deliver the righteous :
He will save the humble man.

All Thy works praise Thee, O Lord: and Thy saints give thanks unto Thee.

They shew the glory of Thy Kingdom, and talk of Thy power: that Thy power, Thy glory, and mightiness of Thy kingdom, might be known unto

men.

Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and Thy dominion endureth throughout all ages.

The Lord upholdeth all such as fall : and lifteth up all those that are down.

The eyes of all wait upon Thee, O Lord : and Thou givest them their meat in due season. Thou openest thine hand: and fillest all things living with plenteousness.

WEBBE, KENT, ARNOLD.

Almighty and everlasting God, mercifully look upon our infirmities, and in all our dangers and necessities stretch forth Thy right hand to help and defend us, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Almighty and everlasting God, who hatest nothing that Thou hast made, and dost forgive the sins of all those that are penitent, create in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins, and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of Thee, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Be merciful unto me, O Lord : for I will call daily upon Thee.

Comfort the soul of thy servant : for unto Thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.

For Thou, Lord, art good and gracious : and of great mercy unto all them that call upon Thee.

Give ear, O Lord, unto my prayer: and ponder the voice of my humble desires.

In the time of my trouble I will call upon Thee: for Thou hearest me.

Among the gods there is none like unto Thee, O Lord: there is not one that can do as Thou doest.

All nations whom Thou hast made shall come and worship Thee, O Lord: and shall glorify Thy name.

For Thou art great, and dost wondrous things: Thou art God alone.
