IT is a good thing to give thanks un / to the Lord, And to sing praise unto thy | name, O God most i

high : To show forth thy loving kindness in the morning, And thy | faithfulness | every | night, The day is thine; the night also is thine : Thou hast prepared the light and the sun. From the rising of the sun unto the going | down of

the same, The Lord's name is to be ) praised. I laid me down and slept : I a I waked, for the Lord sus | tained me. My voice shall thou hear in the morning, O Lord, In the morning will I direct my prayer unto thet,

and will look up.

Cause me to hear thy loving kindness | in the

morning : For in | thee | do I trust. Cause me to know the way where I in I should I walk ; For I lift up my soul to thee.

Teach me to do thy will,
For I thou | art my.1 God.

Thy spirit is good :
Lead' me in | to the | land of | uprightness.
Our fathers trusted in / thee:
They trusted, and thou | didst deliver them.
They cried unto thee, and I were de | livered ;
They trusted in thee, | and were not con | founded.
Let all those that put their trust in / thee re I joice;
Let them ever sing for joy, because I thou del

fendest them. For thou, Lord, wilt | bless the righteous ; With favour wilt thou compass | him, as / with al

shield.

And give thanks at the remembrance of his

holiness.

His countenance doth be hold the upright.
His anger endureth | but for a moment :
In | · his | favour is | life.
Weeping may endure for a night,
But joy , cometh 1 in the morning.

Staad in awe and sin not:
Commune with your own heart upon your i bed, 1

and be still.
Offer the sacri | fices of righteousness,
And put your trust i in the Lord.

There are many that say, Who shall shew us | any i

good. Lord, lift thou tup the light of thy | counten i ancé

up on us. Thou hast put gladness in my heart, More than in the time that their corn and their |

wine increased.

Let my praver be set forth before thee as | incense, And the lifting up of my hands | as the evening |

sacrificc. I will both lay me down in ! peace, and sleep; For thou, Lord, only i makesi me | dwell in | safety.
