For I am ! poor and necdy,
Yet the Lord thinketh up on me.
Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and | he shall sus |

tain tliée ;
Ile shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
For ihe needy shall not always be forgotten ;
The expectations of the poor shall not perish

fur | ever. The humble shall see this, and be glad, And their heart shall | live, that seek God. For he will : b'ındantly | bless their pro | visions : He will / satisfy their í poor with | bread. The Lord will be a refuge for the op | pressed ; A I refuge in time of trouble.

Defend the poor and fatherless : Do justice to ibe afflicted and needy. Give us : help from 1 triable; For i vain is ihe help of man.


TEAR my praver, O Lord:

In thy | faithfulness I answer me,
And in thy righteousness.

Consider and hear me, O Lord iny | God :
Lighten my eyes, lest I | sleep the i sleep of deather
Lord, be merciful unto me ; | heal my soul;
For I have sipned against thee.
Quicken thou me, O Lord, fır thy | mercy's i sake:
For thy righteousness sake, bring my soul l.culiff


I call to remembrance my song in the night :
I commune with


own heart : my spirit | naketh iligent search. Will the Lord cast off for ever? And will he be | favoural ble no more? Is his kindness with drawn for ever? Will his promise fail for i all | gene i rations ? Hath God forgotten | to be s gracious? Hath he in anger cut | off his , tender / mercies ? Tren I said, This is my grief, The change of the right hand of the most | higla. Let me remember the deeds cf Jehovah, Yea, let me remember his former I wonders.

Blessed is the man whom thou / chastenest, 0 | Lörd,
And teachest him | out of thy I lay.
For the Lord will not cast | off his people,
Neither will he for | sake | his in | heritance.
But judgment shall return | unto | righterusness,
And all ihe i upright in | hcart shall I follow it:

That men mav know that he whose name a | lone is

Is the Most High over all the earth.


BLESSED be the name of the Lord
From this time frih, | and for ever | more.
Whatsoever the Lord pleased, that did he
In heaven and in earth, in the seas, and in all

leep | places.

He causeth the vapours | to ascend
From the | ends of the earth.
He maketh lightnings | for.the rain :
He bringeth the wind out of his treasury.

The waters / saw thee, O God:
They were afraid : the depths | also were I troubled :
The clouds | poured out | water :
The skies sent i furth a | sound.

Thine arrows also I went a | broad :
The voice of thy | thunder was in the heaven :
The lightnings en lightened the world :
The earth shook and trembled.

Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great

waters ;
And thy footsteps are not known.
The Lord is high a | bove all | nations ;
And his glory above the heavens.

Therefore we will not fear, though the earth be re |

moved : And though the mountains be carried into the

midst of the sea. Though the waters thereof | roar and are / troubled ; Though the mountains / shake with the | swelling

there I of. How excellent is thy loving kindness, O God! Therefore the children of men put their trust under

the shadow | of thy | wings. Be of good courage, and he shall / strengthen your

heart, All | ye that I hope in the | Lord.

BY the rivers of Babylon, ! there we | sat ;
We wept when we re | membered 1 Zion.
Upon the willows | in the midst of it
Wel hang • ed our | harps.
For there they who had carried us a way captives

required of us a l song;
And they who had brought us away required

joy. “Sing us one of the songs of | Zion." “How can we sing a song of Jehovah in the I land

of a stranger

When the Lord brought back the captivity of i Zion,
We were I like them tha: | dream.
Then was our mouth | filled with laughter,
And our | ongel: with singing.


Then said they among the heathen,
si Jehovah hath done" great things for them."
Yea, Jehovah hath doæe / great things / for us,
Where of we are glad.
Glorious is it to speak of | thee,
O city of our God.
Happy that people in such a state,
Yea, happy that people whose | God is Jehovah :


HOW am I glad when they say un to ma
"I will go up to the house of Jehurah."
My foot hatli | stood al | ready
In thy gates, o Jerusalem.
Jerusalem, thou beautifully built :
Chief city, where all unite to get her!
There are the thrones of judgmeut,
The | thrones of the house of Davic,
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem ;
May | they | prosper that I love thee!
Peace be with in thy | walls,
Pros i perity | in thy | palaces !
For my brethren and companions' 1 saker
I wish thee peace!
For the sake of the temple of our | Godt
