And all the wealthy of the land
Shall make their suit to thee. 13
The daughter of the King
All glorious is within ;
Her garments wrought have been. 14 She cometh to the King
In robes with needle wrought;
Shall unto thee be brought. 15
They shall be brought with joy,
And mirth on ev'ry side,
And there they shall abide. 16 And in thy fathers stead,
Thy children thou may'st take,
Them noble princes make. 17
I will shew forth thy name
To generations all :
To thee give praises shall.
This Psalm, which may be considered as a sequel to the former, shines forth conspicuously triumphant, and, if we may so say, exalted to the very pinnacle and perfection of heavenly joy and praise divine ! In the same light, behold and sing its parallels
and sing, O saint! with thy God for ever!
How blest are they, and only they,
Inspirited by faith and hope,
The Lord of Hosts is on our side!
In straits a present aid:
We will not be affraid :
By swelling seas do shake.
The city of our God:
Most high hath his abode.
Nothing shall her remove : The Lord to her an helper will,
And that right early, prove.
The kiugrious moved were:
The earch did melt for fear.
Doth coastache remain :
Us satuly a nacincain.
Have beloni been wrought ;
He on the earth hath brought. 9 l'nto the ends of all the earth
Wars into peace he turns :
In fire the chariot burns.
10 Be still, and know that I am God;
Among the heathen I
Will be exalted high.
Is still upon our side;
For ever will abide.
The same as Psalm ii. with its parallels. See Psal. Ixviii. 24, 25, interpreted, Eph. iv. 8. of Christ's ascension and its consequences.
Th' ascension of the Lord on high
Hath pav'd for us the heav'nly way,
In regions of elernal day.
And reigns in majesty above,
Upon the wings of faith and love.
With voice of triumph shout: 2 For dreadful is the Lord most High,
Great King the earth throughout, 3 The heathen people under us
He surely shall subdue;
Under our feet to bow. 4 The lot of our inheritance
Choose out for us shall he.
Ey’n the excellency.
5 God is with shouts
the Lord With trumpets sounding high. 6 Sing praise to God, sing praise, sing praise,
Praise to our King sing ye.. 7 For God is King of all the earth ;
With knowledge praise express. 8 God rules the nations : God sits on
His throne of holiness.
They who the people be.
The earth are only his :
Exalted greatly is.
This Psalm seems to be only a second part of the fast ; and the meaning of it is equally obvious.
The universal pow'r and sway
Of Jesus Christ the Lord of Hosts,
fill the world through all her coasts.
Let all her children join their voice!
Who fills us with eternal joys !
Is to be praised still,
Upon his holy hill.
2 Mount Sion stands most beautiful,
The joy of all the land:
On her north side doth stand. 3 The Lord within her palaces
Is for a refuge known. 4 For, lo, the kings that gather'd were
Together, by have gone.
They, wond'ring, would not stay;
They thence did haste away.
They were possess'd with fear;
When she a child doth bear. 7 Thou Tarshish ships with east wind break'st: 8 As we have heard it told, So in the city of the Lord,
Our eyes did it behold:
For ever stablish will.
Lord in thy temple still.
Through all the earth's thy praise;
Of righteousness always.
Let Sion mount rejoice;
Send forth a cheerful voice.
The high tow'rs thereof tell : 13 Consider ye her palaces,
And mark her bulwarks well;
