CXXX.
1.-(1, 2. 5, 6, 7, 8.)
FROM lowest depths of woe,

To God I sent my cry;
Lord, hear my supplicating voice,

And graciously reply.
My soul with patience waits

For Thee, the living Lord;
My hopes are on Thy promise built,

Thy never-failing Word.
My longing eyes look out
For Thy enliv’ning ray,
More duly than the morning-watch

To spy the dawning day.
Let Israel trust in God,

No bounds His mercy knows ; [whence The plenteous source and spring from

Eternal succour flows.

Whose friendly streams to us

Supplies in want convey; A healing spring, a spring to cleansc, And wash our guilt away.

CXXX.

II.
LORD, hear my suppliant prayer,
O let Thine ears consider well

The voice of my complaint!
Should'st Thou each error mark,

Who could Thy sentence bear?
But mercy dwells with Thee, that men

Thy righteous truth may fear.
For Thee, the gracious Lord,

I wait with trustful eyes ;
On the sure comfort of Thy Word
My firm-built hope relies.

CXXXIII. (II.) O

BLESS'D estate! bless'd from above! 'Tis like the pearls of dew that drop

When brethren join in mutual love. On Hermon's ever-fragrant top; 'Tis like the precious odours shed Or which the smiling heavens distil On consecrated Aaron's head,

On happy Sion's sacred hill. Which trickled from his beard and breast, For God hath there His favours placed, Down to the borders of his vest.

And joy, which shall for ever last.
