19 Sihon the Am’rites' king;

For his grace lasteth ever : 20 Og also, who did reign The land of Bashan over :

For certainly his mercies dure

Most firm and sure eternally. 21 Their land by lot he gave ;

For his grace faileth never,
22 That Isr'el inight it have
In heritage for ever:

For certainly his mercies dure
Most firm and sure eternally.

13 The sea he cut in two;

For his grace lasteth still. 14 And through its midst to go Made his own Israel :

For certainly his mercies dure

Most firm and sure eternally. 15 But overwhelm'd and lost

Was proud king Pharaoh,
With all his mighty host,
And chariots there also :

For certainly his mercies dure

Most firm and sure eternally. 16 To him who pow'rfully His

chosen people led,
Ev’n through the desert dry,
And in that place them fed :

For certainly his mercies dure

Most firm and sure eternally. 7 To him great kings who smote;

For his grace hath no bound. 18 Who slew, and spared not Kings famous and renown'd:

For certainly his mercies dure
Most firm and sure eternally.

23 Who hath remembered

Us in our low estate; 24 And us delivered From foes which did us hate:

For certainly his mercies dure

Most firm and sure eternally. 25 Who to all flesh gives food;

For his grace faileth never. 26 Give thanks to God most good, The God of heav'n, for ever:

For certainly his mercies dure
Most firm and sure eternally.

PSALM CXXXVI. SECOND VERSION. 1 PRAISE God, for he is kind :

7 Great lights he made to be; His mercy lasts for aye.

For his grace lasteth aye : 2 Give thanks with heart and mind 8 Such as the sun we see, To God of gods alway:

To rule the lightsome day: For certainly his mercies dure

For certainly his mercies dure Most firm and sure eternally.

Most firm and sure eternally. 8 The Lord of lords praise ye,

9 Also the moon so clear, Whose mercies still endure.

Which shineth in our sight; 4 Great wonders only he

The stars that do appear, Doth work by his great pow'r:

To guide the darksome night: For certainly his mercies dure

For certainly his mercies dure Most firm and sure eternally.

Most firm and sure eternally. 6 Which God omnipotent,

10 To him that Egypt smote, By might and wisdom high,

Who did his message scorn ; The heav'n and firmament

And in his anger hot Did frame, as we may see:

Did kill all their first-born: For certainly his mercies dure

For certainly his mercies dure Most firm and sure eternally.

Most firm and sure eternally. 6 To him who did outstretch

11 Thence Isr'el out he brought; This earth so great and wide,

For his grace lasteth ever. Above the waters' reach

12 With a strong hand he wrought, Making it to abide:

And stretch'd-out arm deliver : For certainly his mercies dure

For certainly his mercies dure Most firm and sure eternally.

Most firm and sure eternally.

137 PSALM CXXXVII. 1 BY Babel's streams we sat and wept,

when Sion we thought on. 2 In midst thereof we hang'd our harps

the willow-trees upon. 3 For there a song required they,

who did us captive bring: Our spoilers callid for mirth, and said,

A song of Sion sing. 4 O how the Lord's song shall we sing

within a foreign land? 6 If thee, Jerus’lem, I forget,

skill part from my right hand. 6 My tongue to my mouth's roof let if I do thee forget,

(cleave,

7 Remember Edom's children, Lord,

who in Jerus'lem's day, Ev'n unto its foundation,

Raze, raze it quite, did say. 8 O daughter thou of Bahylon,

near to destruction ; Bless'd shall he be that thee rewards,

as thou to us hast done. 9 Yea, happy surely shall he be

thy tender little ones Who shall lay hold upon, and them

shall dash against the stones.
