6 Thy feet, dear SAVIOUR! we'll embrace,
(The kindling wrath Thy love restrains) Trust in the smiles of Jesu's face,
While o'er the world MESSIAH reigns,
A Morning Psalm.
In this weak state of flesh and blood !
But my defence and hope is God. 2 Tir'd with the burdens of the day, i
To Thee I rais'd my ev’ning cry ;
And Thine Almighty help was nigh. 3 Supported by Thine heav'nly aid,
I laid me down, and slept secure :
Though I should wake and rise no more, 4 Bat God sustain'd me all the night;
Salvation doth to God belong:
head to see the light, And made His praise my morning song.
An Evening Psalm. 1 To what rich and heav'nly stores
Doth the LORD His people lead!
All the good I daily need:
2 With the day's new mercies crown'd,
Bid this night Thy face to shine!
Who for earthly comforts pine,
Than when earthly blessings flow. 3 LORD! on me the gracious beams
Of Thy heav'nly presence shed !
Sweet repose shall soothe my bed. Now these blessings, LORD! dispense; Thou, alone, art my defence.
For the Morning of the Sabbath. 1 LORD, in the morning Thou shalt hear
My voice ascending high ;
To Thee lift up mine eye;
To plead for all His saints,
Our songs and our complaints.
The wicked shall not stand ;
Nor dwell at Thy right hand. 4 But to Thy house will I resort,
To taste Thy mercies there;
And worship in Thy fear.
5 may Thy SPIRIT guide my feet
In ways of righteousness!
And plain before my face.
Pleading for Mercy.--On Despair. 1 IN mercy, not in wrath, rebuke
Thy feeble worm, my God!
And trembles at Thy rod.
Regard my heavy groans;
And heal my broken bones! 3 By day, my busy beating head
Is fill'd with anxious fears ;
I weep a flood of tears.
Mine eyes grow dull with grief; How long, my LORD, ere Thou return,
And bring my soul relief? 5 Satan, my cruel, envious foe,
Insults me in my pain ;
And tells me-hope is vain.
Nor tempt me to despair;
The LORD has heard my prayer.
1. O THOU, to whom all creatures bow
Within this earthly frame,
How glorious is Thy Name !
The moon that rules the night,
Those moving worlds of light;
Who dwells so far below, That Thou should'st visit him with grace,
And love his nature so?
4 That Thine eternal Son should bear
To take a mortal form,
To save a dying worm?
Ś Let Him be crown'd with majesty
Who bow'd His head to death; And be His honours sounded high
By all things that have breath.
5 Jesus, our LORD, how wondrous great
Is Thine exalted name!
Let the whole earth proclaim !
Pruise.—God a Refuge to believers. i To celebrate Thy praise, O LORD,
I will my heart prepare;
Thy wondrous works, declare.
Exalted pleasure bring ; Whilst to Thy Name, Thou most High!
Triumphant praise I sing.
Against oppressing rage :
In our behalf engage. 4 All those who have His goodness prov'd,
Will'in His truth confide;
That on His help rely'd.
From Sion, His abode,
Confess no other God.
The awful Portion of the wicked. 1 THE LORD hath both a temple here,
And righteous throne above, Whence He surveys the sons of men,
And how their counsels move.
