And made His righteous acts appear
In all the heathen's sight.
Of Israel's house His love and truth
Have ever mindful been;
Of Israel's God have seen.
Let earth receive her KING;
And all creation sing.
Let men their songs employ;
Repeat the sounding joy.
6 No more let sips and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
Far as the curse is found.
7 He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove. The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love.

LORD JEHOVAH reigns ;
The LORD is great in Zion's plains,
His awful name revere. 2 Exalt The LORD our God,
And worship at His feet; Judgment and truth are His abode,
And holiness His seat.
Moses and Aaron join,
Extol His pow'r divine. 4 Ye servants of the LORD,
Who call’d upon His name,
His acts of grace proclaim.
In mercy He forgave:
Omnipotent to save.
In Zion, His abode :
Exalt the LORD our God.
PSA L M XCIX.
Let all the nations fear:
And saints be humble there.
2 Jesus the SAVIOUR reigns,
Let earth adore its LORD:
Bright cherubs His attendants stand,
Swift to fulfil His word.
3 In Zion is His throne,
His honours are divine ;
For there His glories shine. 4 How holy is His name!
How terrible His praise !
In alí His works of grace. 5 Exalt the Lord our God,
And worship at His feet; His nature is all holiness, And mercy is His seat. PSALM C.
(Old 113:) The Psalmist invites all the world to join with Israel in the praises of JEHOVAH, who is the God not of the Jews only, but of the Gentiles also. 1 ALL nations join in themes of praise,
Serve ye the LORD, your anthems raise ; His courts attend, approach His throne: We are His people, we His sheep, Form'd by His hand, He doth us keep,
JEHOVAH is the LORD ALONE. 2 O enter then within His gates, Where praise with grateful homage waits;
His goodness and compassion prove:
His works record,
PSALM C. II Metre. (L, M.)
Sing to the LORD with cheerful voice ;
Come ye before Him, and rejoice.
2 The LORD, ye know, is God indeed,
Without our aid He did us make; We are His flock, He doth us feed,
And for His sheep He doth us take.
3 O enter then His gates with praise,
Approach with joy. His courts unto; Praise, laud, and bless His name always,
For it is seemly so to do.
4 For why? the LORD our God is good,
His mercy is for ever sure;
PSALM C. III Metre. (LM)
Ye nations bow with sacred joy! Know that the LORD is God alone,
He can create, and He destroy. 2 His sov'reign power, without our aid,
Made us of clay, and form’d'us men; And when like wand'ring sheep we stray'd,
He brought us to His fold again. 3 We'll crowd Thy gates with thankful songs,
High as the heav'ns our voices raise;
And earth with her ten thousand tongues,
Shall fill Thy courts with sounding praise.
4 Wide as the world is Thy command:
Vast as eternity Thy love:
When rolling years shall cease to move.
King David advanced to the throne of Israel declares his pious purpose of just and holy government, und the qualifications of his household,
Thy judgments shall my soul record;
2. When wilt Thou come to me, my God,
And make my heart Thy blest abode?
3 The faithful in my house shall dwell,
With me Thy loving-kindness lell;
4 The Church below, in peace and love,
Shall emulate the Church above;
