With deep repentance well agree,
That hides and cancels all his sins!
BENEFITS OF CONFESSION.
1 WHILE I keep silence and conceal
2 I spread my sins before the Lord,
CREATION AND PROVIDENCE.
1 REJOICE, ye righteous, in the Lord;
Sing of His name, His ways, His word,
2 His mercy and His righteousness
His works of nature and of grace
3 His wisdom and almighty word
Their shining hosts were made.
4 He bade the liquid waters flow
The flowing seas their limits know,
5 Ye tenants of the spacious earth,
6 He scorns the angry nations' rage,
GOD, A NATION'S REFUGE.
1 BLESSED is the nation where the Lord
Has fixed His gracious throne;
2 His eyes, with infinite survey,

But holy souls from God obtain
5 God is their fear, and God their trust,

For we have made Thy word our choice,
TATE AND BRADY.

How blessed they are, and only they,
5 Fear Him, ye saints, and you will then
Make you His service your delight;

My secret groaning reached His ears:
And calmed the tumult of my fears.
Around the men, that serve the Lord:
Nor want supplies of real good.
ADVANTAGES OF EARLY PIETY.
1 CHILDREN in years and knowledge young,
Your parents' hope, your parents' joy,
2 If you desire a length of days,
And peace to crown your mortal state:
Restrain your feet from impious ways,
3 The eyes of God regard His saints;
4 To humble souls and broken hearts
5 He tells their tears, He counts their groans: His Son redeems their soul from death: His Spirit heals their broken bones;
While they in praise employ their breath.
GOD'S CARE OF SAINTS.
1 THE Lord for ever guards the just,
2 What though the sorrows, here they taste,
The Lord, who saves His saints at last,
3 Evil shall smite the wicked dead;
Prevents the mischief when they slide,
4 When desolation, like a flood,
