- Long as I live, will I proclaim »His love, and call upon
To Him I fed, and refuge found:
Gracious and righteous is the LORD. 3 Return unto thy rest, my soul,
Thy God, who did thy fears controul,
Restor'd to life, reliev'd thy fears.
Their death is precious in His sight;
Thou loos’d my bonds, and set me free. 5 Thy courts I love; within Thy house
With grateful joy, I'll pay my vows;
PSALM 116. II. Metre. (c.m.) i WHAT shall I render to my God,

Thou ever-blessed God!:
How dear Thy servants in Thy sight!
How precious is their blood ? 4 How happy all Thy servants are ! sia !!!
How great Thy grace to me! My life, which Thou hast made Thy care, (LORD, I devote to Thee.

Nor let my purpose move;
And bound me with Thy love.
And Thy rich grace record ;
Praise ye, O praise the LORD.
PSALM 117. (Old 113.) This psalm is a prophecy of the divine joy which
the world should experience at the coming of MESSIAH ; it exhorts both Jews and Gentiles to glorify God for his mercy. In this sense it is
quoted by St. Paul, Rom. xv. 8, 9, &c.
His mercy, love, and truth record,
Extol the great JEHOVAH's name. 2 JEHOVAH reigns in glorious state, His loving-kindness ever great,
Faithful and just His sacred word:
His truth, eternally the same,
JEHOVAH praise: praise ye the LORD.

Through ev'ry land, by ev'ry tongue. 2 Eternal are Thy mercies, LORD;
Eternal truth attends Thy word ;
PSALM 118. (l.m.) A psalm of triumph, celebrating the victory and
glory of MESSIAH. This application is made by CARIST himself, Matt. xxi. 42. Acts iv. 11. It is appointed by the Church on Easter-day, in condi memoration of the resurrection and exaltation of
our REDEEMER. | PRAISE ye the LORD, give
thanks, and bless His mercy, truth, and righteousness : Zion, arise; rejoice, and sing
The triumphs of our glorious KING, 2 All nations compass'd, but in vain;
The LORD shall ever, ever reign;
3 Open, ye gates of righteousness;
MESSIAH comes, His saints to bless; it Enter, Thou blessed of the LORD, seen o1
Thy kingdom claim, Thy just reward 4 By man refus'd, God's HOLY ONE, ni ondo!1
Head over all, the corner-stone;
He reigns the LORD of earth and heav'n. Loe 5 The mighty deed is done ; proclaim
Salvation in Jehovah's name:
He comes, He comes, hosannahs sing. 6 This is the day the LORD hath made;
Ye heav'ns rejoice; O earth, be glad;
PSALM 118. II. Metre. (c.m.) 1 THIS is the day the Lord
hath made, He calls the hours His own; Let heav'n rejoice, let earth be glad,
And praise surround the throne.
And Satan's empire fell ;
And all His wonders tell.
To David's holy Son !
Salvation from Thy throne,
4 Blest be the LORD, who comes to men
With messages of grace;
And save the fallen race.
The Church on earth can raise ;
Shall give Him nobler praise.
