The heavens declare his righteousness,
And all the people see his glory.
Zion heard, and was glad ;
And the daughters of Judah rejoiced because of

thy | judgments, O Lord.
For thou, Lord, art high above | all the earth:
Thou art exalted | far above all | gods.
Ye that love the Lord, hate evil:
He preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth

them out of the hand of the wicked. 'Light is sown for the righteous, And gladness for the up right in heart. Rejoice in the Lord, ye l righteous"; And give thanks at the remembrance of his

BLESS the Lord, | O my soul :
And all that is within me, bless his holy | name,
Bless the Lord, | O my | soul,
And für | get not | all his benefits:
Who forgiveth all thine iniquities;
Who | healeth | all thv dis | eases ;
Who redeemeth thy life | from de | struction ;
Who crowneth thee with loving kindness | and with:

tender |. mercies;
Who satisfieth thy mouth | with gond | things;
So that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
The Lord executeth righte jusness and judgment for

all that are oppressed. He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts an | to

the , children of Israel.

The Lord is merciful and gracious;
Slow to anger, and '| plente l ous in i mercy,
He will not always | chide;
Neither will he keep his , anger for ever.

He liath not dealt with us | after our | sins;
Nos rev arded us according to our iniquity.
For as the h-aven is high a | bove the | earih,
So great is his mercy i towards them that

fear him.

As far as the east is from the west,
So far hath he removed ! our transgressions

from us.
Like as a father pitieth his children,
So the Lord | pitieth them that fear him.

For he I knoweth our | frame;
He remember | eth that we are dust,
As før man, his | days are as grass ;
As a flower of the field, I so he | flourisheth.

For the wind passeth over it, and I it is gone;
And the place there ) of shall | know it no more,
But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to

everlasting upon | them that | fear him, And his righteousness ( unto children's children ;

To such as I keep his | covenant,
And to those that remember his com | mandments

to | do them. The Lord hath prepared his , throne in the heavens; And his kingdom | ruleth over all.

Bless the Lord, 1 ye his / angels
That excel in strength,
That do I his com , mandments,
Hearkening unto the voice of his word.
Bless the Lord, all ye his hosts;
Ye ministers of his, that I do his | pleasure.
Bless the Lord, all his works in all places of his

do | minion :
Bless the Lord, O my soul.

Psalu CIII,


PART 1. BLESS 1 the Lord, 01:•| my soul. 0 Lord my God, thou art | very great, Thou art | clothed with honour and majesty.

PART 2, He covereth himself with light,'ass with a garment: He stretcheth out the heavens | like a | curtain ; He layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters; He maketh the clouds his chariot ; he walketh upon

the wings of the wind. He maketh the winds his messengers, The flaming fire his ministers. He founded the earth up on its bases, That it might not be removed for I ever and I ever,

PART 3. Thou coveredst it with the deep, as with a garment, The waters | stood a | bove the , mountains. At thy re | buke they | fled ; At the voice of thy thunder they hasted away. They go up by the mountains, they go down | by

the valleys,
Unto the place which I thou hast | founded | for them.
Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass | ayer,
That they turn not a | gain to cover the ) earth.

He sendeth the springs in \ to the | valleys,
Which run among the hills.
They give drink to every | beast of the field,
The wild i assesquench their | thirst.


Near them shall the birds of the heavens have their i

habitations, Whick | sing among the branches. He watereth the hills from his chambers : The earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy I works He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb .

for the service of | man: He bringeth forth | fruit | out of the earth ; And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and

oil to make his face to shine, And bread which I strengthen eth man's heart. The trees of the Lord are full of sap : The cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted : Where the birds | make their | nests : As for the stork, the | fir trees I are her | house, The high hills are a refuge for the wild goals * And the rocks | for the cavies. He appointed the | moon for | seasons ; The sun | knoweth his going down.

PART 3 Thou makest darkness, and I it is ' night : Wherein all the beasts of the forest | do creep I forthia.

lions roar for their | prey, And I seek their meas from Goda The sun ariseth, they gather them | selves to I gether And lay them down in their dens. Man goeth furth un | to his work, And to his | labour un | til the evening. O Lord, how manifold | are thy | works! In wisdom | hast thou made them all : The earth is full of thy riches ! So is this I great and I wide sea :
