PSALMS AND HYMNS.

THE PERFECTIONS OF GOD,
Alphabetically Arranged.

1}

PSALM 33. 2d Part. P. M.
St. Helens, Forty-six Psalm.

All-sufficiency of God, and vanity of creatures.
1 O HAPPY nation! where the Lord
Reveals the treasure of his word,

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.
St. Asaphs, Wareham, Rochester.
Allsufficiency of God, &c.

1 BLEST is the nation where the Lord
Hath fix'd his gracious throne;
Where he reveals his heavenly word,
And calls their tribes his own.
2 His eye, with infinite survey,

2}

Does the whole world behold:
He form'd us all of equal clay,

And knows our feeble mould.
3 Kings are not rescu'd by the force
Of armies, from the grave;

Nor speed, nor courage of an horse
Can the bold rider save.

4 Vain is the strength of beasts or men, To hope for safety thence;

But holy souls from God obtain
A strong and sure defence.

5 God is their fear, and God their trust,
When plagues or famine spread;
His watchful eye secures the just,
Among ten thousand dead.

6 Lord, let our hearts in thee rejoice,
And bless us from thy throne;

For we have made thy word our choice,
And trust thy grace alone.

C. M.

3}

PSALM 36.
Barby, St. James, Irish.

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,
Though mountains melt away;
Thy judgments are a world unknown,
A deep unfathom'd sea.

5 Above these heavens' created rounds,
Thy mercies, Lord, extend;
Thy truth outlives the narrow bounds,
Where time and nature end.

6 Safety to man thy goodness brings, Nor overlooks the beast;

Beneath the shadow of thy wings
Thy children choose to rest.

7 [From thee, when creature streams run low,
And mortal comforts die,
Perpetual springs of life shall flow,
And raise our pleasures high.

8 Though all created light decay,
And death close up our eyes,
Thy presence makes eternal day,
Where clouds can never rise.]

1 MY soul, repeat his praise,
Whose mercies are so great;
Whose anger is so slow to rise,
So ready to abate.

PSALM 103. 2d Part. S. M.
Dover, Pelham.
Compassion of God.

God will not always chide;
And when his strokes are felt,

His strokes are fewer than our crimes,
And lighter than our guilt.

High as the heav'ns are rais'd
Above the ground we tread,
So far the riches of his grace
Our highest thoughts exceed.

His power subdues our sins;
And his forgiving love,

Far as the east is from the west,
Doth all our guilt remove.

The pity of the Lord
To those that fear his name,
Is such as tender parents feel;
He knows our feeble frame.

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,
Or like the morning flower;

If one sharp blast sweep o'er the field,
It withers in an hour.

But thy compassions, Lord,
To endless years endure;
And children's children ever find
Thy words of promise sure.

HYMN 45.

B. 2. L. M.

5}

Quercy, Shoel, Wells.
Condescension of God.

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;
