PSALMS,

FIRST PART. L. M. Ralston.

The Righteous and the Wicked.
1 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 t' employ his morning light

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

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

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

On every work bis hands begin. p 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.

SECOND PART. C. M. Dedham. 1 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.
Enjoy

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

Appoints his saints a place.

1

THIRD PART. S. M. Bladenburg. 1 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.
4 Not so th' ungodly race;

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

Before the driving wind.

P

FOURTH PART. 7's. Norwich.
1 OH 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 God, thy law:
This by day his fixed employ,
This by night his constant joy.
