The Gentiles make his name their trust,
And learn his righteousness. o 3 Let the whole earth his love proclaim,
With all her different tongues ; u And spread the honours of his name, In melody and songs.
St. Martin's. C. M. Second Part. Arundel. Bethlehem. [*]
The Messiah's Coming and Kingdom. 1 TOY to the world—the Lord is come!
U Let earth receive her King : o Let every heart prepare him room, u And heav'n and nature sing. -2 Joy to the earth-the Saviour reigns !
Let men their songs employ; o While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains,
Repeat the sounding joy. e 3 No more let sins and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground; o He comes to make his blessings flow,
Far as the curse is found. g 4 He rules the world with truth and grace ;
And makes the nations prove, The glories of his righteousness,
And wonders of his love. PSALM 99. S. M. FIRST Part. Peckham. *)
Christ's Kingdom and Majesty. 1 THE God, Jehovah, reigns !
I Let all the nations fear; e Let sinners tremble at his throne, e And saints be humble there. - 2 Jesus, the Saviour, reigns !
Let earth adore its Lord ; o Bright cherubs his attendants stand,
Swift to fulfil his word. - 3 In Zion is his throne,
His honours are divine :
For there his glories shine. e 4 How holy is his name !
How terrible his praise ! o Justice and truth, and judgment join,
In all his works of grace.

A holy God worshipped with Reverence. 1 LIXALT the Lord our God,
1 And worship at his feet; His nature is all holiness,
And mercy is his seat.
When Aaron was his priest,
He gave his people rest. - 3 Oft he forgave their sins,
Nor would destroy their race;
When they abus'd his grace.
Whose grace is still the same : -Still he's a God of holiness,
And jealous for his name. PSALM 100. L.M. 1st Part. Old Hundred. [*]
A plain translation.-Praise to our Creator. 1 VE nations of the earth, rejoice,
Before the Lord your sov’reign King;
Doth life and breath and being give;
The sheep that on his pastures live, 0 3 Enter his gates with songs of joy,
With praises to his courts repair;
4 The Lord is good ; the Lord is kind;
A Paraphrase. 1 [SING to the Lord with joyful voice ;
D Let ev'ry land his name adore ; The northern isles shall send the noise Across the ocean to the shore.]
e 2 Before Jehovah's awful throne,
Ye nations, bow with sacred joy ;
He can create, and he destroy.
Made us of clay, and form'd us men; e And when like wand'ring sheep we stray'd, o He brought us to his fold again. e 4 We are his people, we his care ;
Our souls and all our mortal frame: o What lasting honours shall we rear,
Almighty Maker, to thy name? s 5 We'll crowd thy gates, with thankful songs; .
High as the heav'ns our voices raise ;
Shall fill thy courts with sounding praise. g 6 Wide-as the world, is thy command;
Vast-as eternity thy love:
The Magistrate's Psalm.
M And since they both to thee belong,
6 In vain shall sinners hope to rise,
C. M. Mear. [*]
And pay my God my vows ; Thy grace and justice, heav'nly King,
Teach me to rule my house.
And make thy servant wise ;
That shall offend thine eyes.
By falsehood, or by force,
I'll thrust them from my doors.
And will their help enjoy ;
The servants I'll employ.
I'll not endure a night:
And banish from my sight.
And make the wicked flee,
A dwelling fit for thee.
PSALM 102. C. M. FIRST Part. China. [b]
II But answer, lest I die :
To hear when sinners cry?
p 2 My days are wasted, like the smoke,
Dissolving in the air ;
And sinking in despair.
Burnt with excessive heat;
And I forget to eat.
The sparrow tells her moan,
I sit and grieve alone.
Where beasts of midnight howl:
And where the screaming owl.
Dwell in my troubled breast;
Nor give my spirit rest.
And tears are my repast:
Unpleasant to my taste.
To souls that feel the frown;
Thy hand hath cast me down.
And life's declining light
That vanish into night.]
O my eternal God! o Ages to come shall know thy name,
And spread thy works abroad.
· Nor will my Lord delay,
That iong expected day. -12 He hears his saints, he knows their cry ;
And, by mysterious ways,
