4 I love thy habitation, Lord,
5 Let not my soul be join’d at last
PSALM 27. First Part. C. M.
1 HE Lord of glory is my light,
2 One privilege my heart desires;
PSALM 27. Second Part. C. M.
1 So, as I heard my Father say, “Ye children, seek my grace;” My heart reply'd, without delay, “I’ll seek my Father's face.” 2 Let not thy face be hid from me, Nor frown my soul away: God of my life, I fly to thee In a distressing day. 3 Should friends and kindred, near and dear, Leave me to want, or die; My God would make m life his care, And all my need supply. 4 My fainting flesh had died with grief; - #. not my soul believ'd, >
Thy grace would soon provide relief; or was my hope deceiv'd. 5 Wait on the Lord, ye trembling saints, And keep your courage up: He'll raise your spirit when it faints, And far exceed your hope.
- PSALM 28. L. M.
Deliverance from enemies—Prayer answered;
1 GOD of grace, my cry attend
2 To thee my humble sighs arise;
3 Qh save my soul from shame and sin;
4 While peace their flattoring lips proclaim,
5 But, while they plant the secret snare, Thy searching eyes their path regard: Thy hands their dreadful doom prepare, And mete their guilt its just reward.
6 Because their hearts thy works despise, Thy works of wisdom, grace, and pow'r; Thy hand, regardless of their cries, Shall sink them, that they rise no more. 7 Blest be the Lord, who heard my pray’r; The Lord my shield, my help, # song; Who sav'd my soul from sin and fear ; And tun'd with praise my thankful tongue 8 In the dark hour of deep distress, My foes beset, of death afraid; My spirit trusted in his grace, And sought, and found his heav'nly aid. 9 Qblest Redeemer, great and kind! Thy shield, thy saving strength, shall be The shield, the strength, of ev'ry mind, That loves thy name, and trusts in thee. 10 Remember, Lord, thy chosen seed, Israel defend from guilt and woe:
Thy flock in richest pastures feed,
11 Zion exalt, her cause maintain;
With peace and joy her courts surround:
PSALM 29. L. M.
1 IVE to the Lord, ye sons of fame,
2 The Lord proclaims his pow'r aloud,
3 He speaks, and tempest, hail and wind,
4 To Lebanon he turns his voice,
5 The Lord sits sov’reign on the flood;
6 In gentler language there the Lord

4 Firm was my health, my day was bright,
5 But I forgot thine arm was strong,
6 I cried aloud to thee, my God:
1 INTO thy hand, O God of truth,
4 Omake thy reconciled face Upon thy servant shine, And save me for thy mercy's sake! - For I’m entirely thine. 5 'Twas in my haste my spirit said, “I must despair and die; “I am cut off . thine eyes;” But **** cry,
6 Thy goodness how divinely free ?
