15 Burnt-sacrifices of fat rams
With incence I will bring ;
Present an offering.
What he did for my soul.
My tongue did him extol.
The Lord me will not hear:
My prayer's voice gave ear.
For ever blessed be,
Nor yet his grace from me.
Let all the world re-echoing ring ;
The lofty praises of her King !
He judges by the joyful news
In hearts of Gentiles, and of Jens.
ORD, bless and pity us,
Shine on us with thy face: 2 That th' earth thy way, and nations all
May know thy saving grace, 3
Let people praise thee, Lord';
Let people all thee praise. 4 0 let the nations be glad,
In songs their voices raise :
Thou'lt justly people judge,
On earth rule nations all. 5 Let people praise thee Lord; let them
Praise thee, both great and small. 6 The earth her fruit shall yield,
Our God shall blessing send. 7 God shall us bless; men shall him fear
Unto earth's utmost end.
Another of the same. | LORD, unto us be merciful, And graciously cause shine on us
The brightness of thy face : 2 That so thy way upon the earth
To all men may be known; Also among the nations all
Thy saving health be shown. 30 let the people praise thee, Lord';
Let people all thee praise. 4 O let the nations be glad,
And sing for joy always :
And nations rule on earth.
The folk praise thee with mirth. 6 Then shall the earth yield her increase,
God, our God, bless us shall.
7 God shall us bless; and of the earth
The ends shall fear him all.
A song of triumph, prophetic and descriptive of the resurrection, ascension, and following glory of the Lord Jesus Christ; as appears from ver. 18. - Thou hast ascended on high; thou hast led cap
tivity captive; thou hast received gifts for men,' sfc. interpreted, Ephes. iv. 8. · Wherefore he saith,
when he ascended up on high, he led captivity i captive, and gave gifts unto men,' &c.
Lo, light and glory from the grave
Of Jesus Christ arising spring,
And mount to heav’n upon his wing :
Triumphing over death and hell ;
That God the Lord with us might dwell ! * LET God arise, and scattered
Let all his en’mies be ;
Before his presence flee.
As fire melts wax away,
So perish and decay.
Let them before God's sight
Rejoice with all their might.
Extol him with your voice,
That rides on heav'n, by his name JAH,
Before his face rejoice.
Unto the fatherless;
His place of holiness.
In fam’lies: and from bands
Inhabit parched lands.
Before thy people's face ;
Thy glorious marching was ;
Then drops from heaven fell ;
The God of Israel.
Didst send a plenteous rain,
Didst it refresh again.
I'heir habitation there :
O God, thou didst prepare.
The word abroad did spread ;
Did distribute the prey.
Whose wings with silver, and with gold
Whose feathers cover'd are. 14 When there th' Almighty scatter'd kings,
Like Salmon's snow 'twas white. 15 God's hill is like to Bashan hill,
Like Bashan hill for height. 16 Why do ye leap, ye mountains high?
This is the hill where God Desires to dwell; yea, God in it
For aye will make abode. 17 God's chariots twenty thousand are:
Thousands of angels strong; In's holy place God is, as in
Mount Sinai, them among.
Ascended up on high;
Captive captivity :
For such as did rebel;
In midst of them might dwell. 19 Bless'd be the Lord, who is to us
Of our salvation God; Who daily with his benefits
Us plenteously doth load. 20 He of salvation is the God,
Who is our God most strong; And unto God the Lord from death
The issues do belong.
Of those that are his foes;
On in his trespass goes.
Again from Bashan hill;
