Whole number of Metrical Pieces,
Common Particular Metre;
Five and Sixes Metre,
Nine and Eights Metre,
1. FIRST PART. C. M. TATE & BRADY.
The Righteous and the Wicked.
By ill advice to walk;
Where men profanely talk :
His business and delight;
And meditates by night,
With timely fruit does bend,
All his designs attend.
No lasting root shall find;
Like chaff before the wind.
To happiness they tend;
Shall both in ruin end.
Where sinners love to meet;
And hates the scoffer's seat :-
Has placed his chief delight;
3 He, like a plant of generous kind,
By living waters set,
Enjoys a peaceful state.
Shall his profession shine ; While fruits of holiness appear,
Like clusters on the vine.
What vain designs they form!
Or chaff, before the storm.
Among the sons of grace When Christ, the Judge, at his right hand
Appoints his saints a place. 1. THIRD PART. S. M. WATTS. 1 THE man is ever blest,
Who shuns the sinner's ways; Among their councils never stands,
Nor takes the scorner's place :2 But makes the law of God
His study and delight,
And watches of the night. 3 He, like a tree, shall thrive,
With waters near the root;
His works are heavenly fruit. 4 Not so th' ungodly race;
They no such blessings find :
Before the driving wind. 2.
C. M. TATE & BRADY. Christ exalted and his enemies warned. 1 ATTEND, O earth, when God declares
His uncontrolled decree:
Have I begotten thee.
2 "Ask-and receive thy full demands
Thine shall the heathen be; The utmost limits of the lands
Shall be possessed by thee." 3 Learn, then, ye princes—and give ear,
Ye judges of the earth; Worship the Lord with holy fear,
Rejoice with awful mirth.
God our defence. Morning.
On thee our hopes rely;
Lift up our heads on high.
Our sweet repose to take;
Through him in safety wake. 3 Salvation to the Lord belongs;
He only can defend;
That on his power depend. 4. FIRST PART. L. M. SPIRIT OF THE PSALMS.
O who will show us any good ?
And in his holy name believe;
The grateful homage of the heart,
In rich and copious streams impart. 4 Worldlings, who wealth and honours love
Full many a weary vigil keep;
4. SECOND PART. C. M. WATTS.
Rest and Peace in God. 1 LORD, Thou wilt hear us when we pray;
We are for ever thine:
Nor would we dare to sin.
From care and business free, 'Tis sweet conversing on our beds
With our own hearts and thee. 3 We pay this evening sacrifice;
And when our work is done,
Upon thy grace alone. 4 Thus, with our thoughts composed to peace,
We'll give our eyes to sleep ;.
And will our slumbers keep.
Communion with God. Morning. 1 LORD, in the morning thou shalt hear
Our voice ascending high;
To thee lift up our eye.
The wicked shall not stand : Sinners shall ne'er be thy delight,
Nor dwell at thy right hand. 3 But to thy house will we resort,
To taste thy mercies there; We will frequent thy holy court,
And worship in thy fear.
In ways of righteousness !
And plain before our face.
Shall see their hopes fulfilled;
With favour as a shield
