37 0 turn thou, Lord, mine eyes away,
When vanities before them play:
Lord, in thy way, receive thou me : 38 Confirm to me, devoted, Lord,
Unto thy fear, thy plighted word; 39 And turn away my fear and shame,
For glory of thy holy name:
And by thy precepts I am fir’d,
VA U. PART VI. 41 0 let thy mercies to me come,
And raise me from the rueful tomb,
That I may boalt in thee, O Lord : 42 So shall I have wherewith I may
The speech of my upbraiders stay:
And lying vanities abhorrid: 43 O never take thy word away,
Nor disannul the word I say;
Which I to all my brethren tell. 44 So shall I keep for evermore
Thy laws, and con them o'er and o’er: 45 And I will walk with God at large,
Because I keep his holy charge. 46 I'll'of thy teftimonies sing
Before the proudest swelling King;
When I have God my Father nam'd:
For I have lov'd, and ever will,
Thy holy laws, which I fulfil: 48 I'll life my hands up to thy laws,
Which I have lov'd, and made my caufe ;
Which thou hast pledg‘d to me; Which is my only hope, O Lord,
My only ground of plea: 50 Thy word 's my comfort on 'my cross,
Thy word fhall quicken me: 51 The proud have trod on me as dross,
But to thy faw I fee. 52 I call’d to mind thy judgments all,
O Lord, and was rejoic'd'; 53 For horrors deep on me did fall,
When men thy law despis'a.
In house of pilgrimage
My fórrows they afswage :
I think upon thy name,
Are overmore'myl theme:T
Because I've kept thy ways:
O let thy love to me be show'd,
As thou hast promis'd, Lord.
My ways appointed me;
As I was led by thee :
To keep thy holy will;
And sought my soul to kill :
With raging wrath and pride;
Sullain'd me till I dy'd :
Arose to give thee praise :
Thou didst thyself me raise.
Who loves thy holy name,
And sounds abroad thy fame. Juod
Teach me thy ftarures still :
From Zion's holy hill. !

According to thy word, O Lord;
I'll register, and aye record.
O teach thou me in all my ways:
Believe, and live by all my days.
67 Till I aflum'd my humble state,
I walk'd before the Lord at large ;
I bind myself to keep thy charge. 68 Good thou thyself, and doing good,
Teach me thy statutes, O my God:
l'll fill with praise thy world abroad. 69 The proud have forg'd malicious lies,
And held conspiracies on me;
And praise thee on th’accursed tree. 70 Their heart is waxen far and gross,
With worldly ease, and wealth, and pride ;But I will glory in my cross,
And joyfully in God confide. 71 'Tis good for me my cross to bear,
That I may soon be filld with joy: I'll tread and bruise the serpent there,
And fin, and death, and hell destroy. 72 The law that from thy mouth does flow,
Flows to my heart a living well;
Give me thy will to understand;
Obsequious be to thy commai.
And when they see they Thall be glad,
Betause thy word my hope I made.
Thou hast, according to thy word,
Afflicted me in faithfulness.
And give me confolation sweet,
And fallen at thy mercy's feet. 77 Let thy, sure mercies to me come,
And quicken me within the ground;
As empty as the same I found:
And its conditions all have done;
Let promis'd life reward anon: 78 So fhall the proud ashamed be,
Unjustly who've' condemn’d thy Son,
Me justify’d, with all I've dope;
My meditations night and day;
Might duly, to the world display.
And thofe who've waited for my day;
And am to thee the only way:
That I may never be asham'd,
To 1.41om thy ways I have proclaim’d.

But faith in thee my soul prevents :
