He fatisfies our Mouth with Good,
Η Υ Μ Ν ΙΧ.
Whole Mercies are so great,
So ready to abate.
Above the Ground we tread;
Our highest Thoughts exceed. The Pity of the Lord,
To those that fear his Name, Is such as tender Parents feel :
He knows our feeble Frame.
Our Days are as the Grass,
Or like the Morning Flow'r ; If one sharp Blaft sweeps o'er the Field,
It withers in an Hour.
But thy Compassions Lord,
To endless Years endure ;
Thy Word of Promise sure.

Jehovah is his Naine ;
Beside the living Stream.
When they forsake his Ways,
In Paths of Truth and Grace.
His Presence is their Stay ;
Drives all their Fears away.
Doth still their Table fpread;
His Oil anoints their Head.
The fure Provisions of our God,
Attend us all our Days :
H Y M N. XI.
In this weak State of Flesh and Blood! Our Peace they daily discompose,
But our Defence and Hope is God.
 Tir'd with the Burthens of the Day,
To thee we rais’d an Ev'ning Cry; Thou heard'ft when we began to pray,
And thine Almighty Help was nigh. Supported by thine heav'nly Aid,
We laid us down and slept secure; Not Death 1hould make our Hearts afraid,
Though we should sleep and rise no more. But God sustain'd us all the Night!
Salvation doth to God belong :
Of Jesus true and good;
As newly dipt in Blood : By his Pow'r we live to see
The Dawning of another Day; Farther favour'd may we be,
When here no more we stay.
O may we in Righteousness,
In Jesu's Arms awake !
With them ere long partake :
And in his heav'nly Kingdom praise, (Bowing down before his feet)
The Riches of his Grace,
Η Υ Μ Ν . ΧΙΙΙ. .
The Lord's gracious Hand, (Our Great Governor)
Who gave a Command And Charge to his Angels
To watch round our Bed, To guard us from Evils,
From Dangers and Dread. Our Shepherd alone,
The Lord let us bless,
The Prince of our Peace;
; All hail, holy Jesus,
Our Lord and our God! We daily will fing
Thy Merits, thy Praise, Thou merciful Spring
Of Pity and Grace : Thy Kindness for ever
To Men we will tell; And say our dear Saviour
Redeeins us from Hell. Preserve us in Love,
While here we abide; Nor ever remove,
Nor cover, nor hide, Thy glorious Salvation ;
Till joyful we see
The beautiful Vision
Son of Righteousness arise,
Triumph o'er the Shades of Night;
Unaccompany'd by thee;
Till thy Mercy's Beams we see,
Pierce the Gloom of Sin and Grief,
Scatter all our Unbelief : More and more thyself display, Shining to the perfect Day.

The Lamb who takes our Sins away,
Saints sweetly rest in Peace.
