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.



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.
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


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,


unto your memory Do call his holiness.


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:
right hand and his holy arm
Him victory hath won.
