PSALMS.

PSALM I.—(c. M.)

How blest is he who ne'er consents

By ill advice to walk;
Nor stands in sinners' ways, nor sits

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;
But all the paths that sinners tread,

In sure destruction end.

PSALM V.—(c. M.)

Lord, hear the voice of my complaint,

Accept my fervent prayer;
To thee alone, my King, my God,

Will I for help repair.
