Psalms.

Psalm I.

Character and end of the righteous and wicked-evil company-reading the Scriptures.

1 BLEST is the man resolv'd to stand
Aloof where impious men repair;
Who shrinks to take the Atheist's hand,
And views with dread the scorner's chair:

2 Far other joy his heart retains ;

Thy law's his mind's divinest store:
What truths his day's perusal gains,.
By night he sweetly ponders o'er.

3 He, like the tree, where streamlet flows,
Beneath his timely fruit shall bend;
Unfading foliage grace his boughs,
And blessings all his steps attend.

4 But oh! the dread reverse of those

Thy law who neither love nor fear!Dispers'd, like chaff the whirlwind blows, In judgment where shall they appear?

A

5 But-all His saints the SAVIOUR knows:
Their path to life eternal tends;
While the broad road the sinner goes
In fierce destruction always ends.

6 Write in our hearts Thy gracious Word;
With ev'ry fruit adorn us here;
And in heav'n's congregation, Lord!
May we with all Thy saints appear.

Psalm II.

Vanity of opposition to Messiah's kingdom.
1 THE schemes and rage of men-how vain
Against the LORD's anointed King!
How rash, to say, 'We'll break His chain,
'And all His cords we'll from us fling!'

2 When Heav'n's dread Majesty looks down,
He scorns to view their vain array ;
JEHOVAH'S look-tremendous frown-
Sweeps all their powerless ranks away.

3 'Hear My decree, ye sons of earth!
'I've set my King on Zion's hill;
This day He's mine, by royal birth,
'And all my counsels shall fulfil.

4 'He asks dominion at my hands,

[ocr errors]

Nor shall my SON, in vain, implore;
My CHRIST shall reign o'er ev'ry land,
His kingdom reach to ev'ry shore.'

5 With kings and princes of the earth,
May we our timely homage pay,
Serve now with fear and holy mirth,
Lest we be lost by dread delay.
