For I can hope for nó relief,

Unaided by thy grace.

Reposed their hope in thee;

In thee protection found, O Lord, f And life and liberty.

To hear thy sacred word;
My vows I will perform, and there

Thy benefits record.

Wilt not conceal thy face;

Assembled saints my voice shall hear,

As I thy praise proclaim.

And feed me with a shepherd's care,
His presence shall my wants supply,
And guard me with a watchful eye:
My noon-day walks he shall attend,
And all my midnight hours defend.

Or on the thirsty mountain pant,
To fertile vales, and dewy meads

My weary, wandering steps he leads; pp Where peaceful rivers, soft and slow,

Amid the verdant landscape flow.

With gloomy horrors overspread, mf My steadfast heart shall fear no ill,

For thou, O Lord, art with me still :
Thy friendly rod shall give me aid,
And guide me through the dreadful shade.

Through devious, lonely wilds I stray,
Thy presence shall my pains beguile:

The barren wilderness shall smile,
mf With sudden greens and herbage crowned,

And streams shall murmur all around.

Then leads me to cool shades, and where

Refreshing water flows.

And, to his endless praise,
Instruct with humble zeal to walk

In his most righteous ways.

From fear and danger free;

Defend and comfort me.

Through all my life extend, mf That life to him I will devote,

And in his temple spend.

In paths of truth and grace. р 3 When I walk through the shades of death,

Thy presence is my stay;

One word of thy supporting breath mf Drives all my fears away.

8 If e'er I go astray,

He doth my soul reclaim;
And guides me in his own right way,

For his most holy name.

Though I should walk through death's dark

My shepherd's with me there. [shade, 5 Amid surrounding foes

Thou shalt guide my weary feet
To the streams, that, still and slow,
Through the verdant meadows flow

By the shades of death o'erspread,
With thy rod and staff supplied,
This my guard--and that my guide.

Yield me an eternal home.

The Citizen of Zion.
T'lis peopled realms, and wealthy stores ;
Built on the floods by power divine,

The waves are ramparts to the shores. mp 2 But who shall reach thy holy place,

Or who, O Lord, ascend thy hill?
T'he pure in heart shall see thy face,

The perfect man, that doth thy will.

To'idols never bent the knee,

Nor sworn in falsehood ;-he shall stand
inf Redeemed, and owned, and kept by thee.

Alfreton.
WHO shall ascend the holy hill,
Great God! which all thy glories fill?
Who, in thy temple's hallowed dome,
Secure his everlasting home!
2 Whose hands are clean-whose heart sincere,
Whose purpose pure-whose actions clear,
Whose soul no vanity allures,
And truth his plighted vow secures ;-
3 This man the blessing shall receive
The blessing, which the Lord will give:
Salvation from his God shall flow,
And righteousness his hand bestow.
4 These are the men-the chosen seed,
Like Jacob, wrestling as they plead :

They seek, O Lord-they seek thy face, mf And wait--and find the promised grace.
