2 A broken heart, my God, my King,
3 My soul lies humbled in the dust,
4 Then will I teach the world thy ways;
31. Longing for the House of God.—Psalm lxxxiv. 1 LoRD of the worlds above, How pleasant and how fair The dwellings of thy love, Thy earthly temples are: To thine abode My heart aspires, With warm desires, To see my God.
2 The sparrow, for her young,
With pleasure seeks a nest;
And wandering swallows long
To find their wonted rest:
4 O happy souls that pray
4. They go from strength to strength,
Through this dark vale of tears,
Till each arrives at length
Till each in heaven appears.
5 To spend one sacred day,
where God and saints abide,
Affords diviner joy
Than thousand days beside:
6 God is our sun and shield,
All nations exhorted to praise God.-Psalm."

4. Wide as the world is thy command;
The soul ercited to praise God.—Psalm ciii. 1 O BLESs the Lord, my soul! His grace to thee proclaim: And all that is within me join To bless his holy name. O bless the Lord, my soul! His mercies bear in mind; Forget not all his benefits, The Lord to thee is kind. 2 He will not always chide: He will with patience wait: His wrath is ever slow to rise, And ready to abate. He pardons all thy sins, Prolongs thy feeble breath; He healeth thine infirmities, And ransoms thee from death. 3 He clothes thee with his love, Upholds thee with his truth, And, like the eagle, He renews The vigour of thy youth. Then bless his holy name, Whose grace hath made thee whole; Whose loving-kindness crowns thy days;– O bless the Lord, my soul!
Gratitude for deliverance.—Psalm crvi. l My soul, through my Redeemer's care, t Saved from the second death I feel; • Mine eyes from tears of dark despair, My feet from falling into hell. 2. Wherefore to Him my feet shall run; Mine eyes on his perfections gaze; My soul shall live for God alone, And all within me shout his praise.
Vows paid in the sanctuary.—Psalm crvi.
2 Among the saints that fill thine house,
3 How much is mercy thy delight,
How dear thy servants in thy sight!
4 How happy all thy servants are
6 Here in thy courts I leave my vow,
36. Breathing after holiness of life.—Psalm crix. i O THAT the Lord would guide my ways To keep his statutes still ! O that my God would grant me grace To know and do his will. 20 send thy Spirit down to write Thy law upon my heart! Nor let my tongue indulge deceit, Nor act the liar's part.
3 From vanity turn off my eyes:
5 My soul hath gone too far astray,
6 Make me to walk in thy commands,
37. Going to the Temple.—Psalm crxii. 1 How did my heart rejoice to hear My friends devoutly say, “In Zion let us all appear, And keep the solemn day!”
