5 Through all my life, Thy favor is
So frankly shewn to me.
My dwelling place shall be.
PSALM 23. III METRE.
III METRE. (L.M.) 1 THE LORD my pasture shall prepare,
And feed me with a shepherd's care ;
And all my midnight hours defend. 2 When in the sultry glebe I faint,
Or on the thirsty mountain pant,
Amid the verdant landseape flow,
With gloomy horrors overspread,
And guide me thro' the dreadful shade. 4 Though in a bare ånd rugged' way,
Thro’ devious lonely wilds I stray,
The Ark of God moving in a grand solemn pro
cession to Mount Sion, 1 Chron. xv. an emblem of the Christian Church and the glorious Ascension of the Messiah; as such appointed by the Church for Ascension-day.
1 THE earth, and all that dwell therein,
JEHOVAH owns its Lord,
Created by His word.
The holy place of God ?
And meet for Thine abode.. 3 The man, who vanity abhors;
Whose life from guilt is free;
Whose heart is right with Thee. 4 This is the generation, Lord,
Of such as seek Thy face Blessings divine shall they receive,
Glory and righteousness. 5 Lift up your heads, eternal gates,
Ye realms of light make room : Ye everlasting doors, behold
The King of glory come! 6 Who is the King of glory, who?
The mighty Chief renown'd; Mighty in battle, glorious LORD, He comes with triumph crown'd.
77 Lift up your heads, eternal gates,
Unfold the heav'nly scene;
The King of glory in.
The Lord of Hosts, renown'd,
The King of glory crown'd.
By heaven's angelic train,
PSALM 25. (c.M.) A Prayer for pardon, help and protection; and
describing the blessedness of the man, who feareth
My God, I trust in Thee;
Or triumph over me.
Direct me in Thy way;
On Thee I wait all day.
Thy loving kindness past;
My anxious fears surpast.
When I transgress'a Thy words
In mercy, for Thy goodness sake,
Remember me, O LORD, 5 Thou good, and righteous, holy One,
Thy grace and pardon give. Teach me to find Thy way, that I
May to Thy glory live. 6 Divine simplicity of soul,
Meekness and peace impart,
And fix my wav'ring heart.
Sweet peace and joy instil,
Obedient to Thy will,
My nature cleanse within ;
PSALM 25. PART II. 9 0 Highly favor’d, happy man,
The man, who fears the Lorn!
God's providence and word, 10 The blessings of the LORD shall rest
On him and on his seed,
Their steps to glory lead.
His peace and hope improve;
His covenant God to him will shew,
The counsels of His love.
O Lord, preserve my feet,
From heav'n, Thy mercy-seat, 13 The sorrows of my heart enlarge,
My num'rous foes increase ; O look on my adversity,
And bid my sorrows cease.
In the afflictive hour;
With Thine almighty pow'r.
PSALM 26. (c.m. Ar appeal to God and delight in divine ordinances. 1 JUDGE me, O Lord, my trust art Thou,
Examine, prove my heart,
May never more depart.
I set before mine eyes ;
In vanity and lies.
Where all 'l hy saints repair;
To tell Thy wonders there.
By Thine almighty grace,
