S. M. 3rd Part. St. Bridge's. [b]

Ver. 15—22. Backsliding and Desertion. 1 M INE eyes and my desire

11 Are ever to the Lord; I love to plead his promises,

And rest upon his word. 02 Turn, turn thee to my soul ;

Bring thy salvation near; e When will thy hand release my feet

Out of the deadly snare!
p 3 When shall the sovereign grace

Of my forgiving God,
Restore me from those dangerous ways,

My wandering feet have trod. e4 The tumult of my thoughts

Does but enlarge my wo; p My spirit languishes, my heart

Is desolate and low.
5 [With ev'ry morning light,

My sorrow new begins ;
Look on my anguish and my pain,
And pardon all my sins.

6 Behold the hosts of hell,

How cruel is their hate!
Against my life they rise, and join

Their fury with deceit.]
g O keep my soul from death,

Nor put my hope to shame; For I have plac'd my only trust

In my Redeemer's name. e 8 With humble faith I wait,

To see thy fáce again; o Of Israel it shall ne'er be said, d He sought the Lord in vain. PSALM 26. L. M. Quercy. Bath. [*]

Self-Examination. or Evidences of Grace.
1 TUDGE me, O Lord, and prove my ways;

J And try my reins, and try my heart;
My faith-upon thy promise stays,
Nor from thy law my feet depart.

e 2 I hate to walk, I hate to sit
With men of vanity and lies;
The scoffer and the hypocrite
Are the abhorrence of my eyes,
o 3 Amongst thy saints will I appear,

With hands well wash'd in innocence; e But when I stand before thy bar,

The blood of Christ is my defence. --4 I love thy habitation, Lord,

The temple where thine honours dwell; e There shall I hear thy holy word,

And there thy works of wonder tell.
5 Let not my soul be join'd at last
With men of treachery and blood;
Since I my days on earth have past
Among the saints, and near my God.
PSALM 27. C. M 1st Part Bedford. 17

V. 1–6. The Church our Delight and safety. 1 THE Lord of glory is my light,

1 And my salvation too;*
o God is my strength; nor will I fear

What all my foes can do.
-2 One privilege my heart desires.-
O O grant me an abode
Among the churches of thy saints,

The temples of my God.
_3 There shall I offer my requests,

And see thy beauty still;
Shall hear thy messages of love,

And there inquire thy will.
e 4 When troubles rise, and storms appear,
- There may his children hide ;
o God has a strong pavilion, where

He makes my soul abide. s 5 Now shall my head be lifted high,

Above my foes around;
And songs of joy and victory

Within thy temple sound. St. Martin's.
C. M. 2nd Part. Barbj. St. Ann's. [*]

Ver. 8, 9, 13, 14. Prayer and Hope.
1 SOON as I heard my Father say,
d D Ye children, seek my grace.'


-My heart reply'd without delay,
O 'I'll seek my Father's face.
e 2 Let not thy face be hid from me,

Nor frown my soul away; e God of my life, I fly to thee

In, a distressing day. e 3 Should friends and kindred, near and dear,

Leave me to want or die; o My God would make my life his care,

And all my need supply.
-4 My fainting flesh had died with grief,

Had not my soul believ'd
To see thy grace provide relief

Nor was my hope deceiv'd.
5 Wait on the Lord, ye trembling saints,

And keep your courage up;
o He'll raise your spirit when it faints,

And far exceed your hope.
PSALM 29. L. M. Psalm 97. [*]

Storm and Thunder.
1 MIVE to the Lord, ye sons of fame,

T Give to the Lord renown and power ; Ascribe due honours to his name,

And his eternal might adore.
0 2 The Lord proclaims his power aloud,

Over the ocean and the land ;
His voice divides the watery cloud,

And lightnings blaze at his command.
g 3 He speaks, and tempest, hail, and wind

Lay the wide forest bare around; o The fearful hart and frighted hind

Leap at the terrour of the sound.
g 4 To Lebanon he turns his voice,

And lo, the stately cedars break;
The mountains tremble at the noise,
The vallies roar, the deserts quake.
5 The Lord sits sovereign on the flood,

The Thund'rer reigns for ever king;
-But makes his church his blest abode,
Where we his awful glories sing.

The counsels of his grace imparts;
o Amidst the raging storm, his word
Speaks peace and courage to our hearts.
PSALM 30. L. M. 1st Part. Quercy. [*]

Sickness healed and Sorrow removed.
1 (T WILL extol thee, Lord, on high;

1 At thy command diseases fly:
Who but a God can speak and save,

From the dark borders of the grave ? 0 2 Sing to the Lord, ye saints of his,

And tell how large his goodness is ;
Let all your powers rejoice and bless,

While you record his holiness.
:-3 His anger but a moment stays:

His love is life and length of days: e Though grief and tears the night employ, o The morning star restores the joy.]

L. M. 2nd Part. Armley. [b].

Ver. 6. Health, Sickness, and Recovery. 1 TIRM was my health, my day was bright,

I And I presum'd 'twould ne'er be night; Fondly I said within my heart, d Pleasure and peace shall ne'er depart.' -2 But I forgot thine arm was strong,

Which made my mountain stand so long; e Soon as thy face began to hide,

My health was gone, my comforts died. -3 I cried aloud to thee, my God, e What canst thou profit by my blood ?

Deep in the dust, can I declare “Thy truth, or sing thy goodness there? –4 'Hear me, O God of grace, I said,

And bring me from among the dead :' o Thy word rebuk'd the pains I felt,

Thy pard’ning love remov'd my guilt.
-5 My gróans, and tears, and forms of wo

Are turn'd to joy and praises now;
I throw my sackcloth on the ground,
And ease and gladness gird me round.


0 6 My tongue, the glory of my frame,

Shall ne'er be heedless of thy name;

-For sickness heald, and sins forgiv'n. PSALM 31. C.M. 1st Part. Canterbury. [*]

Ver. 5, 13-19, 22, 23. Deliverance from Death. 1 TNTO thy hand, O God of truth,

I My spirit I commit;
Thou hast redeem'd my soul from death,

And sav'd me from the pit.
2 The passions of my hope and fear

Maintain’d a double strife; o While sorrow, pain, and sin conspir'd

To take away my life. d 3 'My times are in thy hand,' I cry'd,


ocilemena sakes

Thou art the refuge where I hide,

The God in whom I trust. e 4 O make thy reconciled face

Upon thy se) vant shine ;
And save me for thy mercy's sake,
For I'm entirely thine.

[5 'Twas in my haste my spirit said,

'I must despair and die,

I am cut off before thine eyes;' O But thou hast heard my cry.] -6 Thy goodness, how divinely free!

How wondrous is thy grace, To those who fear thy majesty,

And trust thy promises ! o y O love the Lord, all ye his saints,

_And sing his praises loud; -He'll bend his ear to your complaints, And recompense the proud.

C. M. 2nd Part. York. [*] V.7-13, 18-21.-Deliverance from Slander and Reproach 1MY heart rejoices in thy name,


Thou hast preserv'd my face from shame,
Mine honour from the dust. :
