THE HONOURABLE AND RIGHT REVEREND
THIS SELECTION OF
PSALMS AND HYMNS
WITH HIS LORDSHIP'S PERMISSION
BY HIS FAITHFUL AND OBEDIENT SERVANTS
Oxford, June, 1836.
PSALM I.—(c. M.)
How blest is he who ne'er consents
By ill advice to walk;
Where men profanely talk.
But makes the perfect law of God
His bus'ness and delight; Devoutly reads therein by day,
And meditates by night.
Like some fair tree, which, fed by streams,
With timely fruit doth bend, He still shall flourish, and success
His just designs attend.
For God approves the good man's ways;
To happiness they tend;
In sure destruction end.
PSALM V.—(c. M.)
Lord, hear the voice of my complaint,
Accept my fervent prayer;
Will I for help repair.
