His praise declare,

15,6 With glory adorn'd,
Ye heavens above,

His people shall sing
And clouds that move

To God, who their beds
In liquid air.

With safety does shield; 5, 6 Let them adore the Lora,

Their mouths fill'd with praises And praise his holy name,

Of him, their great King; By whose Almighty word

Whilst a two-edgd sword
They all from nothing eame :

Their right hand shall wield;
And all shall last,

7,8 Just vengeance to take
From changes free;

For injuries past;
His firm decree

To punish those lands
Stands ever fast

For ruin design'd; 7, 8 Let earn her tribute pay,

With chains, as their captives, Praise him ye dreadful whales,

To tie their kings fast, And fish that through the sea

With fetters of iron
Glide swift with glitt'ring scales;

Their nobles to bind.
Fire, hail, and snow,

9 Thus shall they make good, And misty air

When them they destroy,
And winds that, where

The dreadful decree
He bids them, blow

Which God does proclaim; 9, 10 By hills and mountains, all

Such honour and triumph In grateful concert join'd;

His saints shall enjoy : By cedars stately tall,

O therefore for ever
And trees for fruit design'd;

Exalt his great name.
By every beast,

PSALM CL.
And creeping thing,
And fowl of wing,

in PRAISE the Lord in that blest place, His name be blest.

From whence his goodness largely 11, 12 Let all of royal birth,

flows, With those of humbler frame,

Praise him in heaven, where he his face,

Unveil'd, in pertect glory shows.. And judges of the earth, His matchless praise proclaim.

2 Praise him for all the mighty acts In this design,

Which he in our behalf has done ;
Lel youths with maids,

His kindness this returo eracts,
And hoary heads

With which our praise should equal
With children join.

run 13 United zeal be shown,

(3 Let the shrill trumpet's warlike voice His wondrous fame to raise,

Make rocks and hills his praise rebound: Whose glorious name alone

Praise him with harp's melodious noise, Deserves our endless praise :

And gentle psalt'ry's silver suund. Earth's utmost ends

4 Let virgin troops soft timbrels bring, His power obey

And some with grareful motion dance; His glorious sway

Let instruments of various string,
The sky transcends.

With organs join'd, his praise advance. 14 His chosen saints to grace,

5 Let them who joyful hymns compose,

To cymbals set their songs of praise ; He sets them up on high, And tavours Israel's race,

Cymbals of common use, and those

That loudly sound on solemn days, Who still to him are night O therefore raise

6 Let all that vital breath enjoy,

The breath he does to them afford, Your grateful voice,

In Just returns of praise employ;
And still rejoice

Let every creature praise the Lord
The Lord to praise.
PSALM CXLIX.

GLORIA PATRI.
PRAISE ye the Lord,
Prepare your glad voice,

Common Measure
His praise in the great

TO Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, Assembly to sing :

1 The God whom we adore, In our great Creator

Be glory, as it was, is now,
Let Israel rejoices

And shall be evermore
And children of Sion

As Psalm 25. Be glad in their King.

To God the Father, Son, 3, 4 Let them his great nam.

And Spirit, glory be; Extol in the dance :

As 'twas, and is, and shall be se With timbrel and harp

To all eternity His praises express

As Psalm 100 Who always takes pleasure

To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, His saints to advance,

The God whom earth and heaven adoro And with his salvation

Be g'ory, as it was of old,
The humble to bless.

Is now, and shall be evermore.

GLORIA PATRI
As Psalm 37.

As heretofore
To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

It was, is now, The God whom heaven's triumphant host, And shall be so And suff ring saints on earth adore,

For evermore. Be glory, as in ages past,

As Psalm 149 As now it is, and so shall last

By angels in heaven When time itself shall be no more

Of every degree,

And saints upon earth, Psalm 148.

All praise be address'd To God the Father, Son,

To God in three persons, And Spirit ever bless'd,

One God ever bless'd Eternal Three in One,

As it has been, now is, AU worship be addressed;

And always shall be.
