Note.Some verses in the longer Psalms and Hymns are bracketed, to show that, if deemed advisable, they may be omitted without interfering with the sense; and some of the Psalms and Hymns are bracketed in more places than one, in which cases a choice is afforded as to which of the bracketed verses shall be left out, and which retained; thus preventing the necessity of always omitting the same verses.

PSALMS.

J. CM

Blessedness of the righteous.

1 How blest is he who ne'er consents

By ill advice to walk;
Nor stands in sinners' ways, nor sits
Where men profanely talk.

2 But makes the perfect law of God

His business and delight;
Devoutly reads therein by day,
And meditates by night.

3 Like some fair tree, which, fed by streams,

With timely fruit doth bend, He still shall flourish, and success All his designs attend.

4 For God approves the just man's ways,

To happiness they tend;
But sinners, and the path they tread,
Shall both in ruin end.
