PSALM 145. Part 1. (C. M.).
His loving-kindness to those who call upon Him, fear Him,
Thy endless praise proclaim :
And ever bless Thy name.
And highly to be prais'd;
Above our knowledge rais’d.
To future times extends ; ,
The world with me Thy might shall own,
And Thy great power confess.
They shall with joy proclaim ;
Shall be the constant theme.
PART 2, (C. M.)
His pity still supplies ;
2 Thy love through earth extends its fame,
To all Thy works express'd :

Shall of Thy kingdom speak;
Their lofty subject make.
Shall stand for ever fast;
Thy boundless sway no end shall see, 2. But time itself outlast.
PART 3. (C. M.)

For ever bless His name.

My constant praise shall claim.

He for the righteous cares.
Is our eternal King:
Let all His praises sing.

His tender love extends;
With stedfast hope depends.
With grateful voices sing;
And strike each warbling string.

His praise in the great assembly to sing: In our great Creator let Israel rejoice;

With well-tuned hearts His praises express; Who listens with pleasure to hear their glad
tongues, And waits with salvation the humble to bless

As it has been, now is, and ever shall be.
PSALM 150. (L. M.)
(For the opening of an Organ.)
From whence His goodness largely flows; Praise Him in heav'n, where He His face
Unveil'd in perfect glory shows.
Which He in our behalf hath done;
With which our praise should equal run. 3 To praise awake your tuneful string, - And to the solemn ORGAN sing ; Harmonious let the concert rise,
. And bear the rapture to the skies. 4 Let all that vital breath enjoy,
The breath He does to them afford,
Let every creature praise the Lord.
