2 The Lord God his salvation
Hath caused to be known;
He openly hath shown.
To Isr'el's house hath been ; And the salvation of our God
All ends of th' earth have seen, 4 Let all the earth unto the Lord
Send forth a joyful noise; Lift up your voice aloud to him,
Sing praises, and rejoice. 5 With harp, with harp, and voice of psalms,
Unto JEHOVAH sing : 6 With trumpets, cornets, gladly sound
Before the Lord the King. 7 Let seas and all their fulness roar;
The world, and dwellers there; 8 Let floods clap hands, and let the hills
Together joy declare
To judge the earth comes he:
His folk with equity.
Who was, and is, and is to be,
The same to-day and evermore,
Your King--ye saints of God, adore !
1 TH' eternal Lord doth reign as king,
Let all the people quake;
Let th' earth be mov'd and shake. 2 The Lord in Sion great and high
Above all people is; 3 Thy great and dreadful name (for it
Is holy) let them bless. 4 The king's strength also judgment loves ;
Thou settlest equity :
In Jacob righteously,
And rev'rently do ye
The holy One is he.
Samuel, with them that call
And he them answer'd all. 7 Within the pillar of the cloud
He unto them did speak :
And laws, they did not break. 8 Thou answer’dst them, O Lord our God;
Thou wast a God that gave
Thou wouldest vengeance have. 9 Do

The Holy Ghost constrains us all
Whose mercies are for ever new.
Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice. 2 Him serve with mirth, his praise forth tell,
Come ye before him and rejoice.
Without our aid he did us make :
And for his sheep he doth us take. 4 O enter then his gates with praise,
Approach with joy his courts unto;
For it is seemly so to do.

Another of the same. 1O ALL ye lands, unto the Lord
Make ye a joyful noise, 2 Serve God with gladness, him before
Come with a singing voice.
Not we, but he us made:
Within his pasture fed.

4 Enter his gates and courts with praise,
To thank him go ye thither: To him express your thankfulness
And bless his name together. 5 Because the Lord our God is good, His mercy faileth
never ; And to all generations
His truth endureth ever.

Remain that lies doth tell.
Early destroy will I;
That work iniquity.
PSALM CII. In this Psalm we behold the sufferings of Christ, as expressed in his own person, by the Holy Ghost, from the beginning to verse 12, contrasted with the following glory, as declared by the same Spirit in
of the Father, from verse 12 to 23. Then, from the 23d to the middle of verse 24, the dialogue is again renewed, as at the beginning of the Psalm, in the person of the Son—to whom, from the middle of verse 24, to the end of the Psalm, the Father is again represented, as replying according to the former manner, mentioned from ver. 12 to 23: for so this Psalm, ver. 25, &c. is expressly applied and interpreted by the Holy Ghost, Heb. i. - Unto the
Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever And thou, Lord, in the beginning, hast laid the foundation of the earth; aud the heavens are " the works of thine hands,' &c.— And they shall
be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.'
