PSALM 19. ist version. (L.M.)
The Heavens declare the glory of God. 1 The spacious firmament on high,
With all the blue ethereal sky,
The works of an Almighty hand.
The moon takes up the wondrous tale,
And spread the truth from pole to pole. 3 What though, in solemn silence, all
Move round the dark terrestrial ball ?
Psalm 19. 2d version. (c.M.)
Christ 'the Sun of righteousness. V. 4.6, 7. i Forth from the east the morning sun
Begins his glorious way;
And light and life convey.
2 But, from the gospel's sacred light,
We nobler gifts derive;
The dead in sin revive.
Thy quickening influence give; And let thy word have full success,
That all may hear and live. 4 That word, thy Spirit's sword, applied,
Shall vanquish every sin,
PSALM 19. 3d version. (L.M.)
For deliverance from sin and error, v. 19, fc. | Best Instructor, from thy ways
Who can tell how oft he strays
Leave not, Lord, one root behind. 2 Cleanse us from the guilt that lies
Wrapt within our heart's disguise :
Each presumptuous sin exclude. 9 So our lot shall not be join'd::
To the men, whose impious mind, :41 Fearless of thy just command,
Braves the vengeance of thy hands
Speak the words approv'd- by Thee:
5 While we thus thy name adore,
And thy healing grace iinplore,
PSALM 20. (L. M.) God the Giver of victory and national success. v. 7, s. 1 While nations, fir’d with mutual rage,
In fierce contention warfare wage,
And makes their wills subserve his owo. 2 On horses some their hopes repose;
Some urge the chariot on their foes;
Our trust is in Jehovah's name. 3 The God, whom heaven and earth obey,.
Did shield us in the dreadful day;
His own victorious banner spread. 4 The God of battles Thee we own:
The victory, Lord, is thine alone:
And own thy hand, and sing thy praise. 5 Ob! when we praise and when we pray,
Do Thou, whom heaven and earth obey,
PSALM 23. Ist version. (L.M.)
The Lord; the Shepherd of his people. 1 The Lord my pasture shall prepare,
And feed me with a shepherd's care :
His presence shall my wants supply,
And all my midnight hours defend. 2 When in the sultry glebe I faint,
Or on the thirsty inountain pant,
Amid the verdant landscape flow.
Through devious, lonely, wilds I stray:
And streanis shall murmur all around. 4 Though in the paths of death 1 tread,
With gloomy horrors overspread,
PSALM 24, (L.M.)
Ris'n to the majesty on high:
Dragg’d to the portals of the sky. 2 Lo! his triumphal chariot waits,
And angels chaunt tlie raptur'd lay;
3 “Loose all your bars of massy light,
" And wide unfold 'th' ethereal scene;
“ Receive the King of glory in.”
“ The Lord of hosts, in battle strong;
“And leads in chains the captive throng. 5 Behold! the King of glory waits;
“ Celestial powers, his voice obey :
“ Ye everlasting doors, give way.' 6 Who is the King of glory? Who?
“ Jesus, of power supreme possest:
Psalm 25. (c.M.)
The sinner's hope in God's mercy alone.
To Thee for safety flee;
Which all are placed on Thee.
Our thoughts revolving turn,
Our troubled spirits mourn.
Surpassing every sin,
And grace to cleanse within.
