4 Jesus, the priest, ascends his throne,
While counsels of eternal peace,
Proceed with honour and success. 5 Thro' the whole earth his reign shall spread,
And crush the powers that dare rebel ;
And send the guilty world to hell. 6 Though while he treads his glorious way,
He drinks the cup of tears and blood,
PSALM 110.-C. M. (*)
Christ's kingdom and priesthood. 1
JESUS, our Lord ascend thy throne,
And make thy foes subunit.
Thy.converts shall surpass
And own thy sovereign grace. 3. God hath pronoune'd a firm decree,
Nor changes what he swore ;
" When Aaron is no more.
6. That king of high degree, " That holy man, who Abrah'm blesty
4. Was but a type of thee.” $ Jesus our priest foreyur lives
To plead for us above;
Jesus our King forever gives
The blessings of his love.
And his high throne maintain ;
Who dare oppose his reign.
PSALM 111.-1st Part, C. M.[*]
The wisdom of God in his works. 1 GONGS of immortal praise belong
To my almighty God;
To spread his name abroad. 2 How great the works Iris hand has wrought.
How glorious in our sight!
His wonders with delight.
How wise th' eternal Mind!
That his first thoughts design'd. & When he redeem'd his chosen sons,
He fix'd his covenant sure :
To endless years endure.
Thy heavenly skill proclaim;
But learn to read thy name?
Is our divinest skill;
That best obeys thy will.
PSALM 111.-2d Part. C. M. (*)
The perfections of God. 1
G Bemand our noblest songs ;
VREAT is the Lord; his works of might Let his assembled saints unite
Their harmony of tongues.
He gives his children food ;
He makes his promise good.
To seal his covenant sure;
His ways are just and pure.
Must with his fear begin,
PSALM 112.-L. P. M. [*]
The blessings of the liberal man. 1 THAT man is blest who stands in awe)
His seed on earth shall be renown'd; His house the seat of wealth shall be, An inexhausted treasury,
And with successive honours crown'd. 2 His liberal favours he extends : To some he gives, to others lenfis;
A generous pity fills his mind :
And thus he's just to all mankind.
8 His hands, while they his alms bestow'd, His glory's future harvest sow'd :
The sweet remembrance of the just, Like a green root, revives and bears A train of blessings for his heirs,
When dying nature sleeps in dust. 4 Beset with threatening dangers round, Unmoy'd shall he maintain his ground:
His conscience holds his courage up: The soul that's fill'd with virtue's light Shines brightest in affliction's night ; And sees in darkness beams of hope.
PAUSE.  5 [5 Ill tidings never can surprise His heart that fix'd on God relies,
Though waves and tempests roar around: Safe on a rock he sits, and sees The shipwreck of his enemies,
And all their hope and glory drown'd. 6 The wicked shall his triumph see, And gnash their teeth in agony,
To find their expectations cross'd : They and their envy, pride and spite, Sink down to everlasting night,
And all their names in darkness lost.)
PSALM 112.-L. M. [*]
JHRICE happy man who fears the Lord, Honour and peace his days attend, [word :
And blessings to his seed descend. . Compassion dwells upon his mind,
To works of mercy still inclin'd;
He lends the poor some present aid,
Or gives them, not to be repaid. 3 When times grow dark, and tidings spread,
That fill his neighbours round with dread, His heart is arm'd against the fear,
For God with all his power is there, 4 His soul, well fix'd upon the Lord,
Draws heaveuly courage from his word;
To cheer his heart, and bless his eyes. 5 He hath dispers'd his alms abroad,
His works are still before his God;
PSALM 112.-C. M. [*]
And follows his commands,
Or gives with liberal hands.
To all the sons of need;
With blessings on his seed. 3 No evil tidings shall surprise
His well establish'd mind;
And leaves his fears behind.
Some beams of light shall shine,
And give him peace divine.
