He's come, to judge the world he's come, With justice to reward and doom.
PSALM 76. L. M.
In his just government rejoice;
In his applause unite their voice. 2 Darkness and clouds of awful shade
His dazzling glory shroud in state;
The habitation of his seat.
Above earth's potentates enthroned ;
Supreme by all the gods art own'd. 4 Ye who to serve this Lord aspire,
Abhor what's ill, and truth esteem;
And them from wicked hands redeem. 5 For seeds are sown of glorious light,
A future harvest for the just;
To recompense its pious trust.
Memorials of his holiness
PSALM 77. C. M.
Who wondrous things has done;
The conquest he has won. 2 The Lord has through th' astonish'd world
Displayed his saving might,
In all the heathen's sight.
Have ever mindful been;
Of Israel's God have seen.
Their cheerful voices raise, And all with universal joy
Resound their Maker's praise.
Into the concert bring
Before th’ Almighty King.
With all that seas contain; The earth and her inhabitants Join concert with the main.
7 Let floods and torrents clap their hands,
With joy their homage pay;
Redoubled shouts convey:
, Who does with justice come, And with impartial equity,
Both to reward and doom.
PSALM 78. C. M.
From the xeix. Psalm of David.
The guilty nations quake:
Let earth's foundations shake. 2 On Sion's hill he keeps his court,
His palace makes her towers;
Supreme o'er earthly powers.
His great and dreadful Name;
His holiness proclaim.
Of strength and power take place;
Dispensed to Jacob's race.
Before his footstool fall;
His holiness extol.
Exalt our God and Lord;
Alone should be adored.
PSALM 79. L. M.
From the c. Psalm of David.
To God their cheerful voices raise
And sing before him songs of praise 2 Convinced that he is God alone,
From whom both we and all proceed;
The flock that he vouchsafes to feed. 3 O enter then his temple gate,
Thence to his courts devoutly press;
And still his name with praises bless. 4 For he's the Lord, supremely good,
His mercy is for ever sure;
To endless ages shall endure.
PSALM 81. L. M.
From the ciii. Psalm of David.
Y soul, inspired with sacred love,
God's holy Name for ever bless ; Do thou, O Lord, attend;
Of all his favours mindful prove, To thy eternal throne of grace
And still thy grateful thanks express. Let my sad cry ascend.
2 'Tis he that all thy sins forgives, 2 0 hide not thou thy glorious face
And after sickness makes thee sound; In times of deep distress;
From danger he thy life retrieves, Incline thine ear, and, when I call,
By him with grace and mercy crown'd. My sorrows soon redress.
3 He with good things thy mouth supplies, 3 My days, just hast’ning to their end,
Thy vigour eagle-like restores; Are like an evening shade ;
He to the suff’rer promptly fies, My beauty does, like wither'd grass,
Who, wrongd, his righteous help implores. With waning lustre fade.
4 The Lord abounds with tender love, 4 But thine eternal state, O Lord,
And unexampled acts of grace; No length of time shall waste
His waken'd wrath doth slowly move, The mem'ry of thy wondrous work,
His willing mercy flies apace. From age to age shall last.
5 God will not always harshly chide,
But with his anger quickly part;
And loves his punishments to guide 1 God shall arise, and Sion view
More by his love than our desert. With an unclouded face:
6 As high as heaven its arch extends For now her time is come, his own
Above this little spot of clay, Appointed day of grace.
So much his boundless love transcends 2 The name and glory of the Lord
The small respects that we can pay. All heathen kings shall fear,
7 As far as 'tis from east to west, When he shall Sion build again,
So far has he our sins removed; And in full state appear.
Who, with a father's tender breast, 3 For God, from his abode on high,
Has such as fear him always loved. His gracious beams display'd;
8 For God, who all our frame surveys, The Lord from heaven, his lofty throne,
Considers that we are but clay; Hath all the earth survey'd.
How fresh soe'er we seem, our days 4 That they, in Sion, where he dwells,
Like grass or flowers must fade away. Might celebrate his fame,
9 Whilst they are nipp'd with sudden blasts, And through the holy city sing
Nor can we find their former place,
God's faithful mercy ever lasts
To those that fear him, and their race. 1 The strong foundations of the earth
10 This shall attend on such as still Of old by thee were laid;
Proceed in his appointed way; Thy hands, O Lord, the arch of heaven
And who not only know his will, With wondrous skill have made.
But to it just obedience pay. 2 Whilst thou for ever shalt endure,
11 The Lord, the universal King, They soon shall pass away;
In heaven has fix'd his lofty throne: And, like a garment often worn,
To him, ye angels, praises sing, Shall tarnish and decay.
In whose great strength his power is shown. 3 Like that, when thou ordainost their change, 12 Ye that his just commands obey, To thy command they bend;
And hear and do his sacred will, But thou continu'st still the same,
Ye hosts of his, this tribute pay, Nor have thy years an end.
Who still what he ordains fulfil. 4 Thou to the children of thy saints
13 Let every creature jointly bless Shall lasting quiet give;
The mighty Lord; and thou, my heart, Whose happy race, securely fix'd,
With grateful joy thy thanks express, Shall in thy presence live.
And in this concert bear thy part.
PSALM 82. S. M.
His grace to thee proclaim;
To bless his holy Name. 2 O bless the Lord, my soul,
His mercies bear in mind;
Who is to thee so kind. 3 He pardons all thy sins,
Prolongs thy feeble breath;
And ransoms thee from death. 4 He feeds thee with his love,
Upholds thee with his truth;
The vigour of thy youth.
His grace, his love proclaim;
To bless his holy Name.
3 They gather what thy stores disperse,
Without their trouble to provide;
The craving world, is all supplied.
The num’rous ranks of creatures moura :
Decay, and to their dust return.
Inspiring vital energies;
Joyous, her new creation sees.
Firm fix'd thy providential care;
Thou dost the waste of time repair.
PART I. L. M.
Possessest empire without bounds,
Eternal majesty surrounds. 2 With light thou dost thyself enrobe,
And glory for a garment take;
Thy canopy of state to make.
His palace-chambers in the skies; The clouds his chariots are, and storms
The swift-wing’d steeds with which he flies. 4 As bright as flame, as swift as wind,
His ministers heaven's palace fill; They have their sundry tasks assignd,
PSALM 84. II. 3.
From the civ. Psalm of David.
In wisdom, power, and goodness
For thee their hidden treasures keep.
Hide but thy face, their comforts fls;
Take thou away their breath, they die;
And life renews the gladden'd earth.
Yet to destruction they return;
Touches the mountains, and they burn :
PSALM 85. C. M.
All prompt to do their sovereign's will. 5 In praising God while he prolongs
My breath, I will that breath employ; And join devotion to my songs,
Sincere, as in him is my joy.
Invoke his sacred Name; Acquaint the nations with his deeds,
His matchless deeds proclaim. 2 Sing to his praise in lofty hymns,
His wondrous works rehearse;
And subject of your verse.
Alone to be adored;
That humbly seek the Lord.
Devoutly still implore ;
1 How various, Lord, thy works are found,
For which thy wisdom we adore ! The earth is with thy treasure crown'd,
'Till nature's hand can grasp no more. 2 All creatures, both of sea and land,
In sense of common want agree;
And, where he's ever present, seek
His face for evermore. 5 The wonders that his hands have wrought
Keep thankfully in mind;
And laws to us assign'd.
PSALM 86. L. M.
Has stood, and shall for ever last. 2 Who can his mighty deeds express,
Not only vast, but numberless ?
His tribute of immortal praise ? 3 Happy are they, and only they,
Who from thy judgements never stray ;
But always practise what they know. 4 Extend to me that favour, Lord,
Thou to thy chosen dost afford;
Thy saints in full prosperity;
And count thy people's triumph mine. 6 Let Israel's God be ever bless'd,
His name eternally confess'd;
From the cvi. Psalm of David.
PART I. III. 1.
For his mercies ever sure,
To eternity endure. 2 Let his ransom'd flock rejoice,
Gather'd out of every land,
Pluck'd from the destroyer's hand. 3 In the wilderness astray,
In the lonely waste, they roam,
Far from refuge, shelter, home :4 To the Lord their God they cry ;
He inclines a gracious ear,
Rescues them from all their fear 5 Them to pleasant lands he brings,
Where the vine and olive grow';
Where, from verdant hills, the springs
Through luxuriant valleys flow.
For his goodness to their race;
And the riches of his grace!
1 Thy wondrous power, Almighty Lord,
That rules the boist'rous sea,
Who tempt that dangʻrous way. 2 At thy command the winds arise,
And swell the tow'ring waves;
And sink in gaping graves.
Dismay'd they plunge again;
And finds his courage vain.
He hears their loud request,
And lays the floods to rest.
They see the storm allayd :
There, let their vows be paid !
The goodness of the Lord !
His wondrous love record !
PSALM 88. C. M.
From the cviii. Psalm of David.
GOD, my heart is fully bent
To magnify thy Name;
Shall celebrate thy fame.
Thy warbling notes delay; Whilst I with early hymns of joy
Prevent the dawning day.
Thy wonders I will tell,
That round about us dwell ;
The highest heaven transcends, And far beyond th' aspiring clouds
Thy faithful truth extends. 5 Be thou, O God, exalted high
Above the starry frame;
PSALM 89. II. 2.
Sit thou in state at my right hand :
Supreme in Sion thou shalt be,
Subjected to thy just command.
And, when thy rising beams they view, Shall all, (redeem'd from error's night) Appear more numerous and bright
Than crystal drops of morning dew.” 3 The Lord hath sworn, nor sworn in vain, That like Melchisedech's, thy reign
And priesthood shall no period see: Anointed Prince ! thou, bending low, Shalt drink where darkest torrents flow,
Then raise thy head in victory!
PSALM 91. L. M.
Of God, and loves his sacred law;
And with successive honours crown'd. 2 The soul that's filld with virtue's light
Shines brightest in affliction's night ;
As well as just to all mankind. 3 His lib'ral favours he extends,
To some he gives, to others lends;
PSALM 90. L. M.
My soul her utmost power shall raise,
Of saints, his praise shall be my song. 2 His works, for greatness though renown'd,
His wondrous works with ease are found
And in the pious search delight.
And universal glory claim;
Shall to eternal ages last.
To keep his wondrous works in mind;
That good and gracious is our Lord. 5 His bounty, like a flowing tide,
Has all his servants' wants supplied ;
His cov’nant with our fathers sign'd. 6 Just are the dealings of his hands,
Immutable are his commands,
And for eternal rules ordain'd.
And then establish'd his decree,
Holy and rev'rend is his Name.
Must with the fear of God begin :
PSALM 92. II. 2.
His sacred Name for ever bless
Where'er the circling sun displays
Due praise to his great Name address.
But shadows of his glory are:
Yet he to earth vouchsafes his care;
Companion of the greatest care.
PSALM 93. C. M.
But to thy sacred Name
And truth's eternal fame.
The God whom ye adore ?"
And uncontrolld thy power,
Who is your help and shield;
Who only help can yield.
On him they fear rely;
