PSALM I.

FIRST METRE.

From the 8th of David.
1 0 THOU, to whom all creatures bow

Within this early frame,
Through all the world how great art thoug

How glorious is thy name!
2 In heav'n thy wondrous acts are sung,

N fully reckon'd there;
And yet thou mak'st the ivfant tongue

Thy boundless praise declare.
3 When hear'n, thy beaut’ous work on high,

Employs my wond'ring sight;
The moon, that nightly rules the sky,

With stars of feebler light.
4 What's man (say 1) that, Lord, thou lov'st

To keep him in thy mind ?
Or what his offspring, that thou prov'st

To them so wondrous kind ?
5 Him next in power thou didst create

To thy celestial train ;
Ordain'd, with dignity and state,

O'er all thy works to reigu.
