Psalm 103.

982
i Bless the Lord, | O my | soul :

And all that is within me, I bless His | holy | Name. 2 Bless the Lord, O my soul,

And for- get not all His benifits: 3 Who forgiveth all | thine in- | iquities;

Who | healeth all | thy dis- | eases ; 4 Who redeemeth thy life | from destruction ;

Who crowneth thee with loving- | kindness and tender | mercies; 5 The Lord is merci- | ful and I gracious,

Slow to anger, and | plente | ous in | mercy. 6 He hath not dealt with us | after our / sins ;

Nor rewarded us according to our in- | iquities. 7 For as the heaven is high above the earth,

So great is his mercy toward them that fear-him. 8 As far as the east is from the west,

So far hath he removed | our trans- gressions from us. 9 Like as a father / pitieth · his children,

So the Lord pitieth | them that I fear — | Him.
Glory be to the Father, &c.

Psalm 121.

983 1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence | cometh · my | help.

My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. 2 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: He that keepeth thee | will not

slumber. Behold, He that keepeth Israel shall | neither slumber . nor | sleep. 3 The Lord is thy Keeper : the Lord is thy shade upon | thy right | hand:

The sun shall not smite thee by day, | nor the | moon by | night. 4 The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: He shall pre- | serve thy | soul. The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth,

and | even · for ever- | more. Glory be to the Father, &c.

LÆTATUS SUM.

Psalm 122.

984
i I was glad when they said | unto / me,

Let us go into the house of the Lord. 2 Our feet shall stand with- | in thy I gates,

O Je-| ru - sa - lem. 3 Pray for the peace of Je- , rusa- | lem:

They shall prosper that | love — | thee. 4 Peace be with in thy | walls,

And prosperity with | in thy | pala- ces. 5 For my brethren and com- panions' | sakes,

I will now say, Peace — | be with- | in thee. 6 Because of the house of the Lord our | God,

I will seek - | thy — | good.
Glory be to the Father, &c.

985
1 Out of the depths have I cried unto | Thee, O Lord.

Lord, hear my voice: 2 Let Thine ears | be at- | tentive

To the | voice · of my | suppli- | cations. 3 If Thou, Lord, shouldest mark in- | iquities,

O Lord, - | who shall stand ? 4 But there is for- 1 giveness • with | Thee,

That | Thou — | mayest be / feared. 5 I wait for the Lord, my soul doth | wait,

And in His | word — | do I | hope. 6 My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that I watch for the morning:

I say, more than they that , watch — | for the morning. 7 Let Israel hope in the Lord: for with the Lord | there is | mercy,

And with Him is | plente- | ous re- | demption. 8 And He shall redeem | Isra- | el

From | all — | his in- | iquities.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
And to the Holy | Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever | shall be,
World without end. A men.

Psalms 132 and 24. I ARISE, O Lord, | into · Thy | rest;

Thou, and the | ark - | of Thy | strength. 2 Let Thy priests be clothed with | righteous. I ness;

And let Thy saints-shout for joy. 3 Who shall ascend into the hill | of the Lord,

Or who shall stand | in His | holy | place? 4 He that hath clean hands, and a | pure - heart;

Who hath not lifted up his soul unto | vanity, · nor | sworn de- | ceitfully, 5 He shall receive the blessing from the Lord,

And righteousness from the God of his sal- | vation. 6 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye ever- | lasting | doors:

And the King of glory | shall come in. 7 Who is this | King of glory?

The Lord, strong and mighty, the | Lord — | mighty in | battle. 8 Lift up your heads, Oye gates; even lift them up, ye ever - | lasting doors,

And the King of glory shall come in. 9 Who is this | King of glory?

The Lord of hosts, | He is the King of glory.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
And to the Holy | Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
World | without | end. A- | men.
