PSALM 1. C. M. (*) The way and end of the righteous and the wicked. 1 LEST is the man who shuns the place

Wlio fears to tread their wicked ways,

And hates the scoffer's seat: 2 But in the statutes of the Lord

Has plac'd his chief delight;
By day he reads or hears the word,

And meditates by night.“
3 [He, like a plant of generous kind,

By living waters set,
Safe from the storms and blasting wind,

Enjoye a peaceful state.]
A Green as the leaf, and ever fair

Shall his professions shine;
While fruits of holiness appear

Like clusters on the vine.
5 Not so th' impious and unjust;

What vain designs they forin!
Their hopes are blown away, like dust,

Or chaff before the storm

[ocr errors]

6 Sinners in judgment shall not stand

Amongst the sons of grace, When Christ the Judge, at his right band

Appoints his saints a place. 7 His eye beholds the path they tread,

His heart approves it well ; But crooked ways of sinners lead

Down to the gates of hell

PSALM 1. S. M.

The saint happy, the sinner miserable.
THE man is ever blest

' ways,

Amongst their councils never stands,

Nor takes the scorner's place: 2 But makes the law of God

His study and delight, Amidst the labours of the day,

And watches of the night. 3 He like a tree shall thrive,

With waters near the root;
Fresh as the leaf his name shall live,

His works are heavenly fruit.
Not so th' ungodly race,

They no such blessings find :
Their hopes shall flee like empty chaff

Before the driving wind.
5 How will they bear to stand

Before that judgment seat,
Where all the saints at Christ's right hand

In full assembly meet?

6 He knows, and he approves,

The way the righteous go ;
But sinners, and their works, shall meet

A dreadful overthrow.

PSALM 1. L. M. The difference between the righteous and the

wicked. 1

APPY the man, whose cautious feet


Who hates the place where Atheists meet,

And fears to talk as scoffers do.
2 He loves t' employ bis morning light

Amongst the statutes of the Lord ;
And spends the wakeful hours of night

With pleasure, pond'ring o'er his word. 8 He, like a plant, by gentle streams,

Shall flourish in immortal green;
And heaven will shine with kindest beams,

On every work his hands begin.
4 But sinners find their counsels cross'd:

As chaf before the tempest flies,
So shall their hopes be blown and lost,

When the last trumpet shakes the skies. 5 In vain the rebel seeks to stand

In judgment with the pious race;
The dreadful Judge with stern command,

Divides hiin to a different place. 6 “Straight is the way my saints, have trod,

“I best the path, and drew it plain,
“ But you would choose the crooked road;
"And down it leads to endless pain."


PSALM 2. S. M. Translated according to the divine pattern

Acts iv. 24, &c. Christ dying, rising, interceding, and reigning 1

Of heav'n, and earth, and seas, Thy providence confirms thy word

And answers thy decrees. 2 The things so long foretold

By David are fulfill’d,
When Jews and Gentiles join to slay

Jesus, thine holy child.] 3 Why did the Gentiles rage,

And Jews with one accord,
Bend all their counsels to destroy

Th’ Anointed of the Lord ? 4 Rulers and kings agree

To form a vain design;
Against the Lord their pow'rs unite,

Against his Christ they join 5 The Lord derides their rage,

And will support his throne;
He who hath rais'd him from the dead

Hath own'u him for his Son.


6 Now he's ascended high,

And asks to rule the earth ;
The merit of his blood he pleads,

And pleads his heavenly birth. 7 . He asks, and God bestows

A large inheritance:
