4 Born in a world of guilt, I drew
Contagion with my breath; And as my days advanc'd, I grew
A juster prey for death.
With thy forgiving love ;
And bid my pains remove.
Nor drive me from thy face; Create anew my vicious heart,
And fill it with thy grace. 07 Then will I make thy mercy known,
Before the sons of men; o Backsliders shall address thy throne,
And turn to God again.] C. M. 20 Part. Bishopsgate. Canterbury. [b]
Repentance, and Faith in tre Blood of Christ. 10 GOD of mercy, hear my call,
My load of guilt remove; Break down this separating wall,
That bars me from thy love. - Give me the presence of thy grace ; o Then my rejoicing tongue o Shall speak aloud thy righteousness,
And make thy praise my song. e 3 No blood of goats, nor heifer slain,
For sin could e'er atone: o The death of Christ shall still remain
Sufficient and alone.
My God will ne'er despise ;
Is our best sacrifice.
PSALM 53. C. M. Mear. [*] Ver. 4–6. Victory and Deliverance from Persecution. 1 A RE all the foes of Zion fools,
A Who thus devour her saints ?, Do they not know her Saviour rules,
And pities her complaints ?
2 They shall be seiz'd with sad surprise ;
For God's revenging arm
To do his children harm.
Of armies in array;
They fall an easy prey.
Her captives to restore !
And Judah weep no more.
PSALM 55. C. M. Canterbury. [b] V. 1-8, 16, 17, 18, 22. Support for the aflicted
and tempted Soul. 110 GOD, my refuge, hcar my cries,
Behold my flowing tears ; For earth and hell my hurt devise,
And triumph in my fears.
My soul with guilt they load;
To shake my hope in God. 3 With inward pain my heart strings sound ;
I groan with every breath : Horrour and fear beset me round,
Amongst the shades of death.]
And innocence had wings;
From all these restless things.
And find a peaceful home ;
Temptations never come.
Can save me here as well.
At noon repeat my cry;
Nor will he long deny.
Or shield me when afraid :
If he command their aid.
The Lord sustains them all :
That saints shall never fall.
My lips shall spread his praise, e While cruel and deceitful men, Scarce live out half their days.]
S. M. Aylesbury. [*] V. 15, 16, 17, 19, 22. Dangerous Prosperity
Daily Devotion. e 1 T ET sinners take their course,
U And choose the road to death ; -But in the worship of my God,
I'll spend my daily breath.
When morning brings the light;
And pay my vows at night. o 3 Thou wilt regard my cries,
O my eternal God: e While sinners perish in surprise,
Beneath thine angry rod.
And no sad changes feel,
Nor learn to do thy will. - 5 But I with all my cares,
Will lean upon the Lord;
And rest upon his word.
The children of his love :
No earthly power can move.
PSALM 56. C.M. Wantage. [b] God's Care of his People, in answer to Prayer. e 1 O THOU, whose justice reigns on high,
And makes the oppressor cease, Behold how envious sinners try,
To vex and break my peace. 2 [The sons of violence and lies,
Join to devour me, Lord ; But as my hourly dangers rise,
My refuge is thy word.]
I have repos'd my trust;
The offspring of the dust.
Charge me with unknown faults ; Mischief doth all their counsels fill,
And malice all their thoughts.
Must their devices stand?
Their groans affect his ears ;
A bottle for my tears.
The wicked fear and fee;
So near is God to me.
I have repos'd my trust;
The offspring of the dust.]
Thou shalt receive my praise : o I'll sing, “How faithful is thy word ;
“How righteous all thy ways!" -10 Thou hast secur'd my soul from death,
O set a pris'ner free!
o That heart and hand, and life and breath,
May be employ'd for thee. PSALM 57. L. M. Old Hundred. Blendon. [*1
Praise for Protection, Grace and Truth. · 1 M Y God, in whom are all the springs
11 Of boundless love, and grace unknown, e Hide me beneath thy spreading wings,
'Till the dark cloud be overblown. -2 Up to the heav'ns I send my cry,
The Lord will my desires perform ; o He sends his angels from the sky,
And saves me from the threat'ning storm. 03 (Be thou exalted, O my God,
Above the heav'ns where angels dwell;
And land to land thy wonders tell.]
Immortal honours to his name: o Awake, my tongue, to sound his praise ;
My tongue, the glory of my frame.
And reaches to the utmost sky;
Above the heay'ns where angels dwell ;
Warning to Magistrates.
u Will ye despise the righteous cause,
While gold and greatness bribe your hands? 2 Have ye forgot, or never knew,
That God will judge the judges too?
Yet you invade the rights of God,
To bind the conscience in your chains.
