PSALMS OF DAVID,
Metre of Tate and Brady.
Psalm 1. C. M.
Verse 1, 2, 3, 4, 6.
By ill advice to walk!
But makes the perfect law of God
His business and delight, Devoutly reads therein by day,
And meditates by night.
Like some fair tree, which, fed by streams,
With timely fruit doth bend,
All his designs attend.
Ungodly men and their attempts
No lasting root shall find; Untimely blasted, and dispersed
Like chaff before the wind.
For God approves the just man's ways,
To happiness they tend;
Shall both iu ruin end,
Psalm 5. C. M.
LOltD, hear the Toice of my complairrfy
Thou in the* mom my voice sbalt hear;
And with the dawning day, To thee devoutly I'll look up,
To thee devoutly pray.
For thou the wrongs that I sustain
Canst never Lord approve,
All evil dost remove.
But let all those who trust in thee,
Let them rejoice whom thou preserv'st,
Psalm 9. C. M.
Verse 1,2, 0,10,11.
10 celebrate thy praise, O Lord, _ I will my heart prepare; To all the Hst'ning world tby works, Thy wond'rous works declare.
The thought of them shall to my soiil
Exalted pleasures bring; Whilst to thy name, O thou most high I
Triumphant praise I sing.
God is a constant sore defence
Against oppressing rage;
In our behalf engage.
All those who have bis goodness prov'd,
Will in his truth confide,
That on his help relied.
Sing praises, therefore, to the Lord,
From Sion, his abode,
Confess no other God.
Psalm 13. C. M,
HOW long wilt thou forget me, Lord?
How long shall anxious thoughts my soul,
How long my enemies insult,
O hear! and to my longing eyes
Restore thy wonted light, And suddenly, or I shall sleep
In everlasting night.
Restore me, lest they proudly boast
Permit not them that vex my soul
