PSALM XCV.

INTERPRETED and improved by its Author, Heb. iii. 4. concerning Christ and the gospel-day-and so, for the same reason, its parallels must be applied.

To-day, to-day, the Holy GHOST

Upon the saints doth loudly call,
In CARIST alone to make their boast,

And lowly at his footstool fall :
For unbelievers evermore,

Who sin against the Holy Ghost,
In outer darkness howl and roar,

And wail God's rest for ever lost ! 10 COME, let us sing to the Lord :

Come, let us ev'ry one
A joyful noise make to the Rock

of our salvation.
2 Let us before his presence come

With praise and thankful voice;
Let us sing psalms to him with grace,

And make a joyful noise.
3 For God a great God, and great King,

Above all gods he is. 4 Depths of the earth are in his hand,

The strength of hills is his.
5 To him the spacious sea belongs,

For he the same did make;
The dry land also from his hands

Its form at first did take.
6 0 come, and let us worship him,

Let us bow down withal,
And on our knees before the Lord':

Our Maker let us fall.
7 For he's our God, the people we

Of his own pasture are,

And of his hand the sheep; to day,

If ye his voice will hear,
8 Then harden not your hearts, as in

The provocation,
As in the desert, on the day

Of the tentation.
9 When me your fathers tempt'd and provod,

And did my working see;
10 Erin for the space of forty years

This race hath grieved me.
I said, This people errs in heart,

My ways they do not know :
11 To whom I sware in wrath, that to

My rest they should not go.

PSALM XCVI.
SIMILAR to Psal. i. See the margin.
Advance, advance the voice of praise !
Let heav'n and earth resound our lays !
Messiah reigns for evermore!

Let all the world their Judge adore ! 10

SING a new song to the Lord:

Sing all the earth to God. 2 To God sing, bless his name, shew still

His saving health abroad. 3 Among the heathen nations

His glory do declare;
And unto all the people shew

His works that wondrous are.
4 For great's the Lord, and greatly he
Is to be magnify'd;

;.

• Prose Pealms of the Bible,

Yea, worthy to be fear'd is he

Above all gods beside.
5 For all the gods are idols dumb,

Which blinded nations fear;
But our God is the Lord, by whom

The heav'ns created were.
6 Great honour is before his face,

And majesty divine;
Strength is within his holy place,

And there doth beauty shine. 7 Do ye ascribe unto the Lord,

of people ev'ry tribe, Glory do ye unto the Lord,

And mighty pow'r ascribe. 8 Give ye the glory to the Lord

That to his name is due;
Come ye into his courts and bring

An offering with you.
9 In beauty of his holiness,

O do the Lord adore;
Likewise let all the earth throughout

Tremble his face before. 10 Among the heathen say, God reigns ;

The world shall stedfastly
Be fix'd from moving: he shall judge

The people righteously. 11 Let heavens be glad before the Lord,

And let the earth rejoice;
Let seas and all that is therein,

Cry out, and make a noise.
12 Let fields rejoice, and ev'ry thing

That springeth of the earth:
Then woods and ev'ry tree shall sing

With gladness and with mirth 13 Before the Lord; because he comes,

To judge the earth comes he:

He'll judge the world with righteousness,

The people faithfully.

PSALM XCVII. ASCERTAINED, with all its parallels, and applied by THE FATHER TO THE SON, Heb. i. 6. - When he bringeth in the First-begotten into the world, he - saith, And let all the angels of God worship him,'• as written in ver. 7. of this Psalm, Worship him, « all ye gods. See Psal. ii. and margin..

Here in THE Soy behold and trace

(Of all his Father's pom'r possest),
The brightness of his Father's face ;

Jehovah's glory full exprest.
1
GOD.
OD reigneth, let the earth be glad,

And isles rejoice each one.
2 Dark clouds him compass; and in right

With judgment dwells his throne. 3 Fire goes before him, and his foes

It burns up round about: 4 His lightnings lighten did the world ;

Earth saw, and shook throughout. 5 Hills at the presence of the Lord,

Like wax, did melt away;
Ev'n at the presence of the Lord

Of all the earth, I say.
6 The heav'ns declare his righteousness,

All men his glory see.
7 All who serve graven images,

Confounded let them be.
Who do of idols boast themselves,
Let shame

upon

them fall:

* Prose Psalms of the Bible.

Ye that are called gods, see that

Ye do him worship all. 8 Sion did hear, and joyful was,

Glad Judah's daughters were ; They much rejoic'd, O Lord, because

Thy judgments did appear.
9 For thou, O Lord, art high above

All things on earth that are;
Above all other gods thou art

Exalted very far.
10 Hate ill, all ye that love the Lord :

His saints' souls keepeth he;
And from the hands of wicked men

He sets them safe and free. 11 For all those that be righteous

Sown is a joyful light,
And gladness sown is for all those

That are in heart upright.
12 Ye righteous, in the Lord rejoice;

Express your thankfulness,
When

ye

unto your memory Do call his holiness.

PSALM XCVIII.

INTERPRETED as the last Psalm.

Let all the world with rev'rence fall
Before the Lord, the Judge of all:
He comes with thousand thousand saints,

To dry our tears, to heal our plaints. 1 O SING a new song to the Lord,

For wonders he hath done:
His
right hand and his holy arm
Him victory hath won.
