| God. 6 O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer: give |

ear, · 0 | God. of Jacob. 7 Behold, O God our shield, and look upon

the face of thine · an- | -ointed. 8 For a day in thy courts' is better than a

thousand. I had rather be a door-keeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.

LORD will give grace and glory; no good thing will he withhold from them that

trusteth · in | thee.

land: thou hast brought back the cap-1

hast turned thyself from the fierceness •

of thine | anger. 4 Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause

thine | anger · toward | us. to cease.

PSALM LXXXVI. 1 Bow down thine ear, O LORD, hear me : for

I am | poor · and needy. 2 Preserve my soul; for I am holy: 0 thou

my God, save thy | servant · that I trusteth · in thee.

3 Be merciful unto me, O LORD: for I cry |

unto thee daily 4 Rejoice the soul of thy servant: for unto

thee, O LORD, do I | lift · up | my 1 soul.

5 For thou, LORD, art good, and ready to for

give; and plenteous in mercy unto all them

that call up-| -on thee. 6 Give ear, O LORD, 'unto my prayer; and at

tend to the voice of my sup-.-pli-1 -cations.

ng In the day of my trouble I will call upon

thee: for thou wilt | answer me. 8 Among the gods there is none like unto thee,

O LORD; neither are there any | works

like | unto thy | works. 9 All nations whom thou hast made shall

come and worship before thee, O LORD;

and shall glorify thy name. 10 For thou art great, and doest wondrous

things: | thou art | God •a- | -lone. 11 Teach me thy way, O Lord; I will walk in

thy truth: unite my heart to fear . thy | 12 I will praise thee, O LORD my God, with all

my heart: and I will glorify thy | name. • for ev-·-er- | -more.




1 I WILL sing of the mercies of the LORD for

ever: with my mouth will I make known

thy faithfulness to all • gene- | -rations. 2 For I have said, Mercy shall be built up

for ever: thy faithfulness shalt thou es-1

-tablish · in the ve- -ry | heavens. 3 I have made a covenant with my chosen,

I have sworn unto | David my | ser

vant, 4 Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build

up thy | throne · to | all • gene- rations. 5 And the heavens shall praise thy wonders,

O LORD: thy faithfulness also in the con

gregation of the saints. 6 For who in the heaven can be compared

unto the LORD? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened · un- | -to •

the LORD? 7 God is greatly to be feared in the assembly

of the saints, and to be had in reverence

of all them that are . a- / -bout him. 8 O LORD God of hosts, who is a strong LORD

like unto thee? or to thy | faithful- • -ness

| rounda- 2- |-bout thee? 9 Thou rulest the raging of the sea : when

the waves therefore arise, thou still- •

-est | them. 10 Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one

that is slain; thou hast scattered thine enemies | with • thy | strong - | arm.

11 The heavens are thine, the earth also is

thine: as for the world and the fulness

thereof, thou hast foun- : -ded them. 12 The north and the south thou hast created

them: Tabor and Hermon shall re- |

-joice in thy - | name. 13 Thou hast a mighty arm: strong is thy

hand, and high is | thy · right | hand. 14 Justice and judgment are the habitation of

thy throne : mercy and truth shill I go •

be- | -fore thy face. 15 Blessed is the people that know the joyful

sound: they shall walk, O Lord, in the

light of thy countenance. 16 In thy name shall they rejoice all the day:

and in thy righteousness shall | they - 1 be


| -alted.

17 For thou art the glory of their strength; and

in thy favour our horn shall be ex

-alted. 18 For the LORD is our defence; and the Holy

One of Is- · -rael | is our | king.


1 LORD, thou hast been our dwelling-place in |

all gene- / -rations. 2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or

ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to ever- | -last- : -ing, I thou · art | God.
