7 The mem'ry of thy goodness great

They largely shall express;
With songs

of praise they shall extol
Thy perfect righteousness.
8 The Lord is very gracious,

In him compassions flow;
In mercy he is very great,

And is to anger slow.
9 The Lord JEHOVAH unto all

His goodness doth declare,
And over all his other works

His tender mercies are.
10 Thee all thy works shall praise, O Lord,

And thee thy saints shall bless; 11 They shall thy kingdom's glory show, 1

Thy pow'r by speech express :
12 To make the

sons of men to kn
His acts done mightily,
And of his kingdom tho excellent

And glorious majesty.
13 Thy kingdom shall for ever stand,

Thy reign through ages all.
14 God raiseth all that are bowd downg'in IA

Upholdeth all that fall.
15 The eyes of all things wait on thee,

The giver of all good;
And thou in time convenient, will

Bestow'st on them their food :
16 Thine hand thou open'st lib’rally,

And of thy bounty gives
Enough to satisfy the need

Of ev'ry thing that lives.
17 The Lord is just in all his ways,

Holy in his works all.
18 God's near to all that call on him,

In truth that on him call.

In mercy he is plenteous,

But unto wrath and anger slow. 9 Good unto all men is the Lord ;

O'er all his works his mercy is. 10 Thy works all praise to thee afford;

Thy saints, O Lord, thy name shall bless. 11 The glory of thy kingdom show Shall

His kingdom's grace that doth excel. 13 Thy kingdom hath none end at all,

It doth through ages all remain. 14 The Lord upholdeth all that fall,

The cast-down raiseth up again.
15 The eyes of all things, Lord, attend,

And on thee wait that here do live,
And thou, in season due, dost send

Sufficient food them to relieve.
16 Yea, thou thine hand dost open wide,

And ev'ry thing dost satisfy
That lives, and doth on earth abide,

Of thy great liberality.
17 The Lord is just in his ways all,

And holy in his works each one. 18 He's near to all that on him call,

Who call in truth on him alone. 19 God will the just desire fulfil

Of such as do him fear and dread :
Their cry regard, and hear he will,

And save them in the time of need.
20 The Lord preserves all, more and less,

That bear to him a loving heart:
But workers all of wickedness
Destroy will he, and clean subvert.

21 Therefore my mouth and lips I'll frame

To speak the praises of the Lord :
To magnify his holy name
For ever let all flesh accord.

PSALM CXLVI. The Spirit and subject of this, and the four following Psalms, may most concisely be expressed in that one word, wherewith they both begin and end, viz. HALLELUJAH, rendered, Praise ye the Lord, which may be called their illustration or title. See Psalm xxxiii. &c.

Come, celebrate, with raplures great,

With koliness and joy,
The reign of grace, truth, mercy, peace,

Which we with Christ enjoy! 1

PRAISE God. The Lord praise, O my 2 I'll praise God while I live;

[soul. While. I have being, to my God In songs

I'll praises give. 3 Trust not in princes, nor man's son,

In whom there is no stay: 4 His breath departs, to's earth he turns ;

That day his thoughts decay.; 's 5 ( happy is that man and blest,

Whom Jacob's God doth aid :
Whose hope upon the Lord doth rest,

And on his God is stay'd :
6 Who made the earth and heavens high,

Who made the swelling deep, And all that is within the same;

Who truth doth ever keep: 7 Who righteous judgment executes

For those oppress'd that be,

Who to the hungry giveth food;..

God sets the pris'ners free. 8 The Lord doth give the blind their sight,

The bowed down doth raise;
The Lord doth dearly love all those

That walk in upright ways. 9 The stranger's shield, the widow's stay,

The orphan's help, is he:
But yet by him the wicked's way

Turnd upside down shall be.
10 The Lord shall reign for evermore :

Thy God, O Sion he
Reigns to all generations.

Praise to the Lord give ye.




With gratitude to God, so good,
Come, let us sound our joy aloud !
For who with us, below the sky,

May for so many blessings vie ?

Praise to our God to sing:
For it is pleasant, and to praise

It is a comely thing.
2 God doth build up Jerusalem;

And he it is alone
That the dispers'd of Israel

Doth gather into one.
3 Those that are broken in their heart,

And grieved in their minds,
He healeth, and their painful wounds

He tenderly up-binds.
