FIRST PART. L. M. Ralston

The Righteous and the Wickcd.
HAPPY the man, whose cautious feet

Shun the broad way, where sinners go;
Who hates the place where atheists meet,

And fears to talk as scoffers do ;-
2 Who loves temploy his morning light

Among the statutes of the Lord ;
And spends the wakeful hours of night,

With pleasure pondering o'er the word
B 3 He, like a plant by gentle streams,

Shall flourish in immortal green;
And heaven will shine, with kindest beams,

On every work his hands begin.
4 But sinners find their counsels crossed ;

As chaff before the tempest flies,
So shall their hopes be blown and lost,

When the last trumpet shakes the skies. 1 SECOND PART. C. M. Dedham.

BLEST is the man, who shuns the place,

Where sinners love to meet;
Who fears to tread their wicked ways,

And hates the scoffer's seat:
2 But in the statutes of the Lord

Has placed his chief delight;
By day, he reads or hears the word,

And meditates by night.
mf 3 He, like a plant of generous kind,

By living waters set,
Safe from the storm and blasting wind,

Enjoys a peaceful state

[ocr errors]

mf 4 Green as the leaf, and ever fair,

Shall his profession shine;
While fruits of holiness appear,

Like clusters on the vine.

5 Not so the impious and unjust :

What vain designs they form!
Their hopes are blown away like dust,

Or chaff, before the storm.
6 Sinners in judgment shall not stand

Among the sons of grace,

When Christ, the Judge, at his right hand mf Appoints his saints a place. 1 THIRD Part. S. M. Bladenburg.

THE man is ever blest,

Who shuns the sinner's ways;
Among their councils never stands,

Nor takes the scorner's place :-
2 But makes the law of God

His study and delight,
Amidst the labors of the day,

And watches of the night. mf 3 He, like a tree, shall thrive,

With waters near the root;
Fresh as the leaf, his name shall live;

His works are heavenly fruit. р

4 Not so th' ungodly race;

They no such blessings find:
Their hopes shall flee like empty chaff,

Before the driving wind.

[ocr errors]


FOURTH Part. 79. Norwich.
OJI how blest the man,

whose ear
Impious counsel shuns to hear ,
Who nor loves nor treads the way,
Where the sons of folly stray :
2 But, impressed with sacred awe,
Meditates, great Gori, thy law :
This by day his fixed employ,
This by night his constant joy

mf 3 Like the tree, that's taught to grow

Where the streams refreshing flow,
He his fruitful branch shall spread,

Prosperous, he no leaf shall shed. р

4 See, ah! see, a different fate
God's obdurate foes await!

See them, to his wrath consigned,
< Fly like chaff before the wind.

5 When thy Judge, O earth, shall come,
And to each assign his doom ;
Say-shall then the impious band

With the just assembled stand?
mf 6 These, th' Almighty-these alone

Objects of his love shall own ;

While his vengeance who defy, Len Whelmed in endless ruin lie.

First Part. C. M. Marlow. Christ exalted and his Enemies warned. WHY did the nations join to slay

Why did they cast his laws away,

And tread his Gospel down?
2 The Lord, who sits above the skies,

Derides their rage below;
He speaks, with vengeance in his eyes,

And strikes their spirits through. mf 3 “I call him my eternal Son,

"knd raise him from the dead;

“ I make my holy hill his throne,
f “ And wide his kingdom spread."
P 4 Be wise, ye rulers of the earth,

Ohey th' anointed Lord;
Adore the King of heavenly birth,

And tremble at his word.

SECOND PART. C. M. Patmos,
ATTEND, () earth, when God declares

His uncontrolled decree :-
“Thou art my Son-this day, my heir,

“ Have I begotten thee.

2 “ Ask--and receive thy full demands

6 Thine shall the heathen be ; < "The utmost limits of the lands

“ Shall be possessed by thee.” р 3 Learn, then, ye princes—and give ear,

Ye judges of the earth; mf Worship the Lord with holy fear, Rejoice with awful mirth.

THIRD PART. S. M. Dover.
THE Lord ascends on high,

And asks to rule the earth;
The merit of his blood he pleads,

And pleads his heavenly birth.
2 He asks and God bestows

A large inheritance:
Far as the world's remotest ends,

His kingdom shall advance.
3 The nations that rebel

Must feel bis iron rod : f He'll vindicate those honors well,

Which he received from God. mp 4 Be wise, ye rulers, now,

And worship at his throne: With trembling joy, ye people, bow f To God's exalted Son. mp 5 If once his wrath arise,

Ye perish on the place: f But blessed is the soul that flies

For refuge to his grace. 2 Fourth Part.

H. M. Murray. mf JESUS, the Saviour, reigns !

On Zion is his throne:
The Lord's decree sustains

His own begotten Son: < Up from the grave f And mount the skies, He bids him rise, With power to save.

2 His kingdom is complete,

This day exalts his name:
