PSALMS OF DAVID.
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;
And meditates by night.“
By living waters set,
Enjoye a peaceful state.]
Shall his professions shine;
Like clusters on the vine.
What vain designs they forin!
Or chaff before the storm
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.
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;
His works are heavenly fruit.
They no such blessings find :
Before the driving wind.
Before that judgment seat,
In full assembly meet?
6 He knows, and he approves,
The way the righteous go ;
A dreadful overthrow.
PSALM 1. L. M. The difference between the righteous and the
APPY the man, whose cautious feet
Who hates the place where Atheists meet,
And fears to talk as scoffers do.
Amongst the statutes of the Lord ;
With pleasure, pond'ring o'er his word. 8 He, like a plant, by gentle streams,
Shall flourish in immortal green;
On every work his hands begin.
As chaf before the tempest flies,
When the last trumpet shakes the skies. 5 In vain the rebel seeks to stand
In judgment with the pious race;
Divides hiin to a different place. 6 “Straight is the way my saints, have trod,
“I best the path, and drew it plain,
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,
Jesus, thine holy child.] 3 Why did the Gentiles rage,
And Jews with one accord,
Th’ Anointed of the Lord ? 4 Rulers and kings agree
To form a vain design;
Against his Christ they join 5 The Lord derides their rage,
And will support his throne;
Hath own'u him for his Son.
6 Now he's ascended high,
And asks to rule the earth ;
And pleads his heavenly birth. 7 . He asks, and God bestows
A large inheritance:
