(L. M.) This Psalm is entitled, “A Prayer of the afflicted when he is overwhelmed, and poureth out his complaint before the Lord.” In the Epistle to the Hebrews, i. 10. the latter part of this Psalm is addressed to Messiah, the eternal Son of God,
Hide not. Thy face, Thy suppliant hear:
My spirits faint, assuage my grief.
But, LORD, eternal days are Thine;
Thine to eternity shall last.
Display Thy pow'r, Thine arm divine;
Let Israel find her long-sought home.,
Kings of the earth Thy.grace proclaim;
When Thou in glory shalt appear.
Thy glorious pow'r, Thy mighty word,
And the whole frame of nature made.'
But Thou shalt reigo in endless day;
PSALM CIII. (Old 104)
) The Psalmist praiseth Jehovah for the mercies of redemption; describes, in most affecting expressions, the frail and transient state of man; and calleth on heaven and earth to praise the everlasting mercy oj God. My soul, praise the Lord, bless his holy
grace from above, And pardons transgressions with infinite love. 2 Jehovah is great, yet deigns to forgive,
To an ger He's slow; by mercy we live:
known, A just God and SAVIOUR, and mercy His throne. 3 As far as the heav'ns in grandeur are high,
So great is. His love, so'glorious, yet vigh ;
fear, As parents their offspring, with tenderest caro. 4 The days of our life, hory soon are they past!
The mercies of God eternally last :
Shall his children's children eternally bless. 5 The LORD, in the heav'ns prepar'd hath His

God's holy name for ever bless;
And still thy grateful thanks express. 2 'Tis God that all thy sins forgives,
And after sickness makes thee sound;
By grace preservd, wilh mercy crown'd 3 The LORD abounds with tender love,
And unexampled acts of grace;
His willing mercy flies apace.
But with His anger quickly parts ;
More by His love than our deserts. 5 As high as heav'n its arch extends
Above this little spot of clay,
The feeble homage we can pay. 6 As far as 'tis from East to West,
So far has He our sins remov'd;
Has such as fear Him always lov'd.
In heav'n has fix'd His awful throne;
In whose great strength His pow'r is shown. 8 Ye that His just commands obey,
And hear and do His sacred will;
Ye bosts of His, this tribute pay,
Who still what He ordains fulfil.
9 Let ev'ry creature jointly bless“
The mighty LORD; and thou, my heart, With grateful joy thy thanks express,
And in this concert bear thy part.
III Metre. (S.M.)
MY Y soul, repeat His praise,
Whose mercies are so great, Whose anger is so slow to rise,
So ready to abate.
2 High as the heav'ns are rais'd
Above the ground we tread,
Our bigbest thoughts exceed.
3 The pity of the LORD,
To those who fear His name,
He knows our feeble frame.
4 Our days are as the grass,
Or like the morning flow'r;
It withers in an hour.
5 But Thy compassions, LORD,
To endless years endure;
Thy word of promise sure.
An act of praise, celebrating the glory, wisdom, goodness, and power of JEHOVAH, in the manifold works of creation. 1 MY soul, praise the Lord, His honour pro
claim: O LORD our great God, how glorious Thy name! Tby beams light diffusing, no eye can bebold,
The clouds are Thy chariot, in glory untold. 2 The heav'ns and earth, the waters and air,
Were form’dby Thy hand, sustain'd by Tby care, The angelic spirits Thy goodness record,
They all wait Thy order, exist by Thy word. 3 The fowls of the air, the beasts of the field,
The earth Thou hast form'd its produce to yield; The trees Thou hast plapted Thy bounty display, While birds chaunt Thy praises, and join in the
lay. 4 The sun, moon, and stars, by day and by night,
The heav'ns adorn'd with varying light;
Acknowledge Thy goodness, and wait upon Thee. 5 Man, form’d for Thy praise, refresh'd from above,
Returns to his work and labours of love;
My being, my all, to Him will I give;
