PSALM 22. Second Part. C. M.
1 ITHING in pain, our Saviour pray'd
2 Great was the vict'ry of his death;
3. A num’rous race shall mount the skies
4 The meek and humble souls shall see
5 The isles shall know the righteousness
PSALM 22. Third Part. L. M. The sufferings and exaltation of Christ. I OW let our mournful songs record The dying sorrows of our Lord; When he complain’d in tears and blood, As one forsaken of his God.
2 The Jews beheld him thus forlorn, And shook their heads and laugh’d in scorn: “He rescu'd others from the grave; “Now let him try himself to save.” 3 They wound his head, his hands, his feet, Tils streams of blood each other meet; By lot his garments they divide, And mock the pangs in which he dy’d. 4 But God, his Father, heard his cry; Rais'd from the dead, he reigns on high: The nations learn his righteousness, And humble sinners taste his grace. PSALM 23. First Part. L. M. Jesus a Shepherd. 1. Jo; my Lord, doth condescend, - To be my shepherd and my friend; I on his faithfulness rely, His care shall all my wants supply. 2 In pastures green he doth me lead, And there in safety makes me feed; Refreshing streams are ever nigh, My thirsty soul to satisfy. 3 When stray’d, or languid, I complain, His i. revives my soul again: For his name's sake, in ways upright, He makes me walk with great delight. 4 Yea, when death’s gloomy vale I tread, With joy, ev’n there, I’ll lift my head; From fear and dread he’ll keep me free; His rod and staff shall comfort me, 5 A table stor'd with living bread, In spite of foes, Lord, thou hast spread; Thou dost my head with oil anoint, And a full cup for me appoint. 6 Goodness and mercy shall to me, Thro' all my life extended be; And when o, pilgrimage is o'er, I’ll dwell with thee for evermore. PSALM 23. Second Part. S. M. The same, . 1 TESUS my Shepherd lives J Jehovah is his name."
Since he is mine, and I am his,
PSALM 24. L. M. The Christian's rest—The ascension of Christ. l This spacious earth is all the Lord's, And men and worms, and beasts and birds: He rais’d the building on the seas, And gave it for their dwelling-place. 2. But there’s a brighter world on high, Thy palace, Lord, above the sky; Who shall ascend that blest abode, And dwell so near his Maker, God? 3. He that abhors and fears to sin, Whose heart is pure, whose hands are clean; Him shall the Lord the Saviour bless, And clothe his soul with righteousness,
4 These are the men, the pious race,
5 Rejoice, ye shining worlds on high,
6 Ye heav'nly gates, your leaves display,
7 Rais'd from the dead, he goes before, He opens heav'n's eternal door, To give his saints a blest abode Near their Redeemer, and their God. PSALM 25. First Part. S. M. Waiting for pardon and direction. 1 I LIFT my soul to God, My trust is in his name : Let not my foes that seek my blood Still triumph in my shame. 2 Sin, and the pow’rs of hell Persuade me to despair: Lord, make me know thy cow’nant well, That 1 may 'scape the snare. 3 From the first dawning light, Till the dark ev’ning rise, For thy salvation, Lord, I wait, ith ever longing eyes. 4 Remember all thy grace, And lead me in thy truth; Forgive the sins of riper days, And follies of my youth. 5 The Lord is just and kind, The meek shall learn his ways; And ev'ry humble sinner find. The blessings of his grace.
6 For his own goodness' sake, He saves my soul from shame; He pardons (tho' my guilt be great) Thro' my Redeemer's name. PSALM 25. Second Part. S. M. - Covenant Blessings. 1 HERE shall the man be found, That fears toffend his God; That loves the gospel’s joyful sound, And trembles at the rod? 2 The Lord shall make him know The secrets of his heart; The wonders of his cov’nant show, And all his love impart.

PSALM 25. Third Part. S. M.
2 Turn, turn thee to my soul;
4 The tumult of my thoughts Doth but enlarge my woe; My spirit languishes; my heart Is desolate and low. 5 With ev'ry morning light My grief anew begins; Look on my anguish and my pain, And pardon all my sins. 6 Behold the hosts of hell, How cruel is their hate : Against my life . rise, and join Their fury with deceit. 7 O keep my soul from death, Nor put my hope to shame: For I have plac'd my only trust In my Redeemer's name. 8 With humble faith I wait, To see thy face again: . Of Israel it shall ne'er be said, He sought the Lord in vain. PSALM 26. L. M. The Christian's integrity—An appeal to God. I UDGE me, O Lord, and prove my ways, And try my reins, and try my heart; My faith upon thy promise stays, Nor from thy law my feet depart.
