2 The Lord God his salvation

Hath caused to be known;
His justice in the heathen's sight

He openly hath shown.
3 He mindful of his grace and truth

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
9 Before the Lord; because he comes,

To judge the earth comes he:
He'll judge the world with righteousness,

His folk with equity.

The praise and majesty of Christ's kingdom. See
Psal. ii. &c.

Who was, and is, and is to be,

The same to-day and evermore,
The God of glorious majesty,

Your King--ye saints of God, adore !

1 TH' eternal Lord doth reign as king,

Let all the people quake;
He sits between the cherubims,

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 :
Just judgment thou dost execute

In Jacob righteously,
5 The Lord our God exalt on high,

And rev'rently do ye
Before his footstool worship him:

The holy One is he.
6 Moses and Aaron mong his priests,

Samuel, with them that call
Upon his name: these callid on God,

And he them answer'd all. 7 Within the pillar of the cloud

He unto them did speak :
The testimonies he them taught,

And laws, they did not break. 8 Thou answer’dst them, O Lord our God;

Thou wast a God that gave
Pardon to them, though on their deeds

Thou wouldest vengeance have. 9 Do

exalt the Lord our God,
And at his holy hill
Do ye him worship: for the Lord
Our God is holy still.




A Psalm of thanksgiving. See Psal. xcv. and margin."

The Holy Ghost constrains us all
Before the Lord our God to fall,
And give to him the glory duc,

Whose mercies are for ever new.
ΑΙ LL people that on earth do dwell,

Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice. 2 Him serve with mirth, his praise forth tell,

Come ye before him and rejoice.
3 Know that the Lord is God indeed;

Without our aid he did us make :
We are his flock, he doth us feed,

And for his sheep he doth us take. 4 O enter then his gates with praise,

Approach with joy his courts unto;
Praise, laud, and bless his name always,

For it is seemly so to do.
5 For why? the Lord our God is good.

is for ever sure:
His truth at all times firmly stood,
And shall from age to age endure.

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.
3 Know ye the Lord that he is God;

Not we, but he us made:
We are his people, and the sheep

Within his pasture fed.

* Prose Psalms of the Bible.

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.


CHRIST's undertaking and vow. See Psal. lxxv.
A song of God's beloved Son,

Which he to David did impart,
Concerning all the ways, anon

To be fulfill'd in Christ's own heart.
1 I MERCY will and judgment sing,
2 With wisdom in a perfect way,

Shall my behaviour be.
O when, in kindness unto me,

Wilt thou be pleas'd to come?
I with a perfect heart will walk

my house at home. 3 I will endure no wicked thing

Before mine eyes to be:
I hate their work that turn aside,

'It shall not cleave to me.
4 A stubborn and a froward heart

Depart quite from me shall;
A person giv'n to wickedness

I will not know at all.
5 I'll cut him off that slandereth

His neighbour privily :

The haughty heart I will not bear,

Nor him that looketh high. 6 Upon the faithful of the land

Mine eyes shall be, that they
May dwell with me: he shall me serve

That walks in perfect way: 7 Who of deceit a worker is

In my house shall not dwell;
And in my presence shall he not

Remain that lies doth tell.
8 Yea, all the wicked of the land

Early destroy will I;
All from God's city to cut off

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.'
