4 But to thy house will I resort,
5 O may thy spirit guide my feet
6 My watchful enemies combine
7 Lord, crush the serpent in the dust,
8 The men that love and fear thy name
PSALM 6. C. M.
1 IN anger, Lord, rebuke me not,
2 My soul's bow’d down with heavy cares, y flesh with pain opprest; My couch is witness to my tears, y tears forbid my rest. 3 Sorrow and pain wear out my days; I waste the night with cries, Counting the minutes as they pass, Till the slow morning rise. 4 Shall Ibe still afflicted more? Mine eyes consum’d with grief? How long, my God, how long, before Thy hand affords relief! 5 He hears when dust and ashes speak, He pities all our groans; He saves us for our Saviour's sake, And heals our broken bones. 6 The virtue of his sov’reign word Restores our fainting breath; For silent graves praise not the Lord: Our lips are seal’d in death.
PSALM 7. C. M.
1 Y trust is in my heav'nly friend, My hope in thee, my God; , Rise, and my helpless life defend * From those that seek my blood. 2. With insolence and fury they My soul in pieces tear; As hungry lions rend the prey, When no deliv'rer’s near. 3 If I indulge in thoughts unjust, And wish and seek their woe, Then let them tread my life to dust, And lay mine honour low.
4 If there were malice hid in me, I know thy piercing eyes; I should not dare appeal to thee, Nor ask my God to rise. 5 Arise, my God, lift up thy hand Their pride and pow'r control; Awake to judgment, and command Deliv'rance for my soul. 6 Let sinners and their wicked rage Be humbled to the dust; Shall not the God of truth engage To vindicate the just? 7 He knows the heart, he tries the reins, He will defend th' upright; His sharpest arrows he ordains Against the sons of spite. 8 For me,their malice dug a pit, But there themselves are cast: My God makes all their mischief light On their own head at last. 9 That cruel, persecuting race . feel his § : Awake, my soul, and praise the grace, And justice of the E. gr

1 Lo: what was man, when made at first, Adam, the offspring of the dust,
That thou should'st set him and his race,

5 The world to come, redeem'd from all

PSALM 9. Second Part. C. M.
1 HEN the great Judge, supreme and just, Shall once inquire for blood, The humble souls, that mourn in dust, Shall find a faithful God. 2 He from the dreadful gates of death Doth his own children raise: In Zion's gates with cheerful breath, They sing their Father's praise. 3 His foes shall fall with heedless feet Into the pit they made; And sinners perish in the net, Which their own hands have spread. 4 Thus by thy judgments, mighty God, Are thy deep counsels known; en men of mischief are destroy'd, The snare must be their own.

That dare forget thee, or rebel
