5 The Lord derides their rage,
And will support his throne;
PSALM 2. SECOND PART. S. M.
UR Lord 's ascended high,
And rules the subject earth;
And pleads his heavenly birth. 2 Beneath his sovereign sway
The Gentile nations bend;
His kingdom shall extend. 3 The nations that rebel
Must feel his iron rod :
Which he received from God. 4 Be wise, ye rulers, now,
And worship at his throne;
To God's exalted Son. 5 If once his wrath arise,
Ye perish on the place;
PSALM 2. THIRD PART. C. M.
? Why did they cast his laws away,
And tread his gospel down? 2 The Lord that sits above the skies,
Derides their rage below; He speaks with vengeance in his eyes,
And strikes their spirits through.
3 I call him my eternal Son,
And raise him from the dead; I make my holy hill his throne,
And wide his kingdom spread.
The utmost heathen lands;
The rebel that withstands."
Obey th' anointed Lord;
And tremble at his word. 6 With humble love address his throne;
For if he frown, ye die:
PSALM 3. FIRST PART. C. M.
How fast my foes increase !
They break my present peace.
There's no relief in heaven,
Too great to be forgiven. 3 But thou, my glory and my strength,
Shalt on the tempter tread:
And raise my drooping head. 4 I cried, and from his holy hill,
He bowed a listening ear;
And he subdued my fear.
5 He shed soft slumbers on mine eyes,
In spite of all my foes :
That guarded my repose. 6 What though the hosts of death and hell,
All armed, against me stood: Terrors no more shall shake my soul;
My refuge is my God.
While I thy glory sing:
And death hath lost his sting. 8 Salvation to the Lord belongs;
His arm alone can save:
PSALM 3. SECOND PART. L. M.
In this weak state of flesh and blood! My peace they daily discompose,
But my defence and hope is God.
To thee I raised an evening cry;
And thine almighty help was nigh. 3 Supported by thine heavenly aid
I laid me down and slept secure :
Though I should wake and rise no more. 4 But God sustained me all the night ;
Salvation doth to God belong :
PSALM 4. FIRST PART. L. M. O GOD of grace and
: Thou hast enlarged me in distress,
Bow down a gracious ear again. 2 Ye sons of men, in vain ye try
To turn my glory into shame;
And dare reproach my Saviour's name? 3 Know that the Lord divides his saints
From all the tribes of men beside ;
For the dear sake of Christ that died 4 When our obedient hands have done
A thousand works of righteousness,
And glory in his pardoning grace. 5 Let the unthinking many say,
“Who will bestow some earthly good??? But, Lord, thy light and love we pray;
Our souls desire this heavenly food.
At grace divine, and love so great ;
Psalm 4. SECOND PART. C. M. LORD, thou wilt hear me when I pray;
: I fear before thee all the day,
Nor would I dare to sin. 2 And while I rest my weary head
From cares and business free, Tis sweet conversing on my bed
With my own heart and thee.
3 I pay this evening sacrifice;
And when my work is done,
Upon thy grace alone. 4 Thus with my thoughts composed to peace,
I'll give mine eyes to sleep;
Psalm 5. C. M.
My voice ascending high;
To plead for all his saints, Presenting at his Father's throne
Our songs and our complaints. 3 Thou art a God before whose sight
The wicked shall not stand; Sinners shall ne'er be thy delight,
Nor dwell at thy right hand. 4 But to thy house will I resort
To taste thy mercies there; I will frequent thy holy court,
And worship in thy fear. 5 O may thy Spirit guide my feet
In ways of righteousness! Make every path of duty straight
And plain before my face. 6 My watchful enemies combine
To tempt my feet astray; They flatter with a base design
To make my soul their prey.
