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.
P

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.

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.
р

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:
