THE PERFECTIONS OF GOD,
PSALM 33. 2d Part. P. M.
All-sufficiency of God, and vanity of creatures.
And builds his church, his earthly throne! His eye the heathen world surveys, He form'd their hearts, he knows their ways; But God, their Maker, is unknown. 2 Let kings rely upon their host, And of his strength the champion boast; In vain they boast, in vain rely: In vain we trust the brutal force, Or speed, or courage of an horse
To guard his rider, or to fly. 3 The eye of thy compassion, Lord, Doth more secure defence afford,
When death or dangers threat'ning stand: Thy watchful eye preserves the just, Who make thy name their fear and trust, When wars or famine waste the land. 4 In sickness or the bloody field,
Thou our physician, thou our shield,
Send us salvation from thy throne: We wait to see thy goodness shine; Let us rejoice in help divine,
For all our hope is God alone.
PSALM 33. 2d Part. C. M.
1 BLEST is the nation where the Lord
Does the whole world behold:
And knows our feeble mould.
Nor speed, nor courage of an horse
4 Vain is the strength of beasts or men, To hope for safety thence;
But holy souls from God obtain
5 God is their fear, and God their trust,
6 Lord, let our hearts in thee rejoice,
For we have made thy word our choice,
Being and attributes of God asserted.
1 WHILE men grow bold in wicked ways, And yet a God they own,
My heart within me often says,
"Their thoughts believe there's none."
2 Their thoughts and ways at once declare (Whate'er their lips profess)
"God hath no wrath for them to fear, "Nor will they seek his grace."
3 What strange self-flatt'ry blinds their eyes! But there's a hast'ning hour,
When they shall see, with sore surprise, The terrors of thy power.
4 Thy justice shall maintain its throne,
5 Above these heavens' created rounds,
6 Safety to man thy goodness brings, Nor overlooks the beast;
Beneath the shadow of thy wings
7 [From thee, when creature streams run low,
8 Though all created light decay,
1 MY soul, repeat his praise,
PSALM 103. 2d Part. S. M.
God will not always chide;
His strokes are fewer than our crimes,
High as the heav'ns are rais'd
His power subdues our sins;
Far as the east is from the west,
The pity of the Lord
He knows we are but dust, Scatter'd by every breath: His anger, like a rising wind, Can send us swift to death.
Our days are as the grass,
If one sharp blast sweep o'er the field,
But thy compassions, Lord,
B. 2. L. M.
Quercy, Shoel, Wells.
1 THY favours, Lord, surprise our souls; Will th' Eternal dwell with us?
What canst thou find beneath the poles, To tempt thy chariot downward thus ?
2 Still might he fill his starry throne, And please his ears with Gabriel's songs;
