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!
Of my forgiving God,
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.
My sorrow new begins ;
How cruel is their hate!
Their fury with deceit.]
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.
J And try my reins, and try my heart;
e 2 I hate to walk, I hate to sit
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.
V. 1–6. The Church our Delight and safety. 1 THE Lord of glory is my light,
1 And my salvation too;*
What all my foes can do.
The temples of my God.
And see thy beauty still;
And there inquire thy will.
He makes my soul abide. s 5 Now shall my head be lifted high,
Above my foes around;
Within thy temple sound. St. Martin's.
Ver. 8, 9, 13, 14. Prayer and Hope.
-My heart reply'd without delay,
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.
Had not my soul believ'd
Nor was my hope deceiv'd.
And keep your courage up;
And far exceed your hope.
Storm and Thunder.
T Give to the Lord renown and power ; Ascribe due honours to his name,
And his eternal might adore.
Over the ocean and the land ;
And lightnings blaze at his command.
Lay the wide forest bare around; o The fearful hart and frighted hind
Leap at the terrour of the sound.
And lo, the stately cedars break;
The Thund'rer reigns for ever king;
The counsels of his grace imparts;
Sickness healed and Sorrow removed.
1 At thy command diseases fly:
From the dark borders of the grave ? 0 2 Sing to the Lord, ye saints of his,
And tell how large his goodness is ;
While you record his holiness.
His love is life and length of days: e Though grief and tears the night employ, o The morning star restores the joy.]

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.
Are turn'd to joy and praises now;
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;
And sav'd me from the pit.
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,
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 ;
'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.

Thou hast preserv'd my face from shame,
