Gop interpos'd, ---His arm display'd,
great JEHOVAH heard.
The cherubim Thou mad'st Thy car.
Thy conquests, 0 Thou God of war, 5 Thy glorious arm maintain'd our cause,
Thy banner of salvation spread.
Guarded by Thee, lift up their head. 6 The triumphs of the day be Thine!
Feeble our pow'r, our praise we own;
Our glowing praises round Thy thronę,
Applied to Messiah ---Vide Bishop Horne, on the
Psalms. 1 ALL hail, MESSIAH, mighty Prince !
Thou rock, on which our hopes we build, In Thy distress Thou call’dst on God;
JEHOVAH's arm Thy strength, Thy shield. 2 Death's sorrows compass'd Thee about,
Floods of ungodliness distrest;
Thy agonizing soul oppress'd.
The mountain mov’d,---for God was there. The earth to its foundations shook,
Convuls'd in sympathizing fear,
4 Darkness all o'er the world proclaims,
The rending veil, the op'ning grave, All nature feels, Thou Son of God,
Thy pain, Thy death, Thy pow'r to save. 5 JEHOVAH thunders in the skies.
Ye heav'ns, the dying triumphs tell; Behold the strong one captive led !
Repeat it thro' the shades of Hell. 6 The conqu’ror rises; he ascends.
Ye saints His grand achievements sing; Pursue his chariot to the skies,
The cherubim's extended wing. 7 Arise and conquer; lift Thine arm;
With trophies deck Thy blest abode, Display Thy pow'r, Thy truth, Thy grace;
And bring Thine enemies to God. 8 Ye heathen lands, obey, submit,
Attest the honor of His name, Ye Gentiles, glorify your God,
Sound thro' the world Messiah's fame.
PSALM 19. The glory of the Sun, an emblem of the light of
divine truth; the 4th verse is applied by St.Paul, to the shining of the Sun of righteousness. Rom.
The glories of His throne;
Their silent voice is known. 2 Behold the sun diffusing life,
With genial warmth and light,
Gigantic in his circuit seen,
Rejoicing in his might. 3 The gladden'd world with joy beholds,
The splendor of its rise;
The glory of the skies.
Diffusing nobler light;
The blind restores to sight.
How pure the sacred word;
The judgements of the LORD! 6 0 precious more than finest gold,
The knowledge of the LORD!
The sweetness of thy word ! 7 By this Thy servant, timely warn’d,
Escapes the snares of sin
Preserves his conscience clean. 80 who can count his num'rous faults?
Who can his heart explore ? LORD, keep me from presumptuous sin,
Lest I offend Thee more.
My ev'ry thought and word,
My strength, Redeemer, Lord.
I THE spacious firmament on high,
With all the blue etherial sky,
The work of an almighty hand.
The moon takes up the wondrous tale,
And spread the truth from pole to pole. 3 What though in solemn silence all
Move round the dark terrestrial ball ?
PSALM 20. (l. m.) The Church prayeth for the prosperity of King
Messiah, going forth to the battle as her Champion, Deliverer and High Priest; blesseth the hing in his exploits, and expresses confidence
in his Salvation. 1
IN Thy distress the LORD attend,
Sustain Thee in Thy trying hour,
And succour with almighty pow'r. 2 Go, Captain of Salvation, go,
Perfect thro’ suff'ring made below,
And Thy grand sacrifice receive. 3 God shall supply thy every want,
Thine heart's desire fulfil, and grant';
Lo! countless trophies grace the skies. 4 Messiah's heard ; the work is done;
The great Salvation's all Thy own!
Thine all the glory! Thine the praise ! 5 Triumphant in Thy sacred name,
All other refuge we disclaim;
Thy name our passport to the skies.
Lord save us, hear us, when we call.
PSALM 21. Appointed by the Church for Ascension Day, cele. brating the victory and glory of the Redeemer,
his kingdom and final triumph. 1 THE king shall in Thy
