(Psalm 1.)

O.M.
WATTS.

7 If once Ilis wrath arise,
The Saint and the Sinner.

Ye perish on the place : 'BLEST is the man who shuns the place

Then blessed is the soul that flies

For refuge to His graco.
Who fears to tread their wicked ways,
And hates the scoffer's seat :

(PSALM 3.) L.M. WATTS.

3
? But in the statutes of the Lord

A Morning Psalm.
Has placed his chief delight;

O

LORD, how many are my foes, By day he reads or hears the word,

In this weak state of flesh and blood And meditates by night.

My peace they daily discompose,
8 Green as the leaf, and ever fair,

But my defence and hope is God.
Shall his profession shine;

2 Tired with the burdens of the day,
While fruits of holiness appear

To Thee I raised mine evening cry: Like clusters on the vine.

Thou heardst when I began to pray,

And Thine almighty help was nigh. 4 Not so the impious and unjust;, What vain designs they form!

3 Supported by Thy heavenly aid,
Their hopes are blown away like dust,

I laid me down, and slept secure:
Or chaff before the storm.

Not death should make my heart afraid,

Though I should wake and rise no more. 5 Sinners, in judgment, shall not stand Among the sons of grace,

4 But God sustained me all the night; When Christ,the Judge,at His right hand

Salvation doth to God belong :
Appoints His saints a place.

He raised my head to see the light;

I make His praise my morning song. 6 His eye beholds the path they tread, His heart approves it well;

(PSALM 4.) C.M. WATTS. But crooked ways of sinners lead

4

An Evening Psalm.
Down to the gates of hell.

I am for ;
(PSALM 2.)

S.M.
WATTS.

I fear before Thee all the day,
Christ rising, interceding, and reigning.

Nor would I dare to sin.
THY did the Gentiles rage,

2 And while I rest my weary head,
Bend all their counsels to destroy

From cares and business free,
The Anointed of the Lord ?

'Tis good conversing on my bed 2 Rulers and kings agree

With mine own heart and Thee.
To form a vain design;

3 I pay this evening sacrifice;
Against the Lord their powers unite,

And when my work is done,
Against His Christ they join.

Great God, my faith, my hope relies 3 The Lord derides their rage,

Upon Thy grace alone.
And will support His throne;

4 Thus, with my thoughts composed to He that hath raised Him from the dead

I give mine eyes to sleep; peace, Hath owned Him for His Son.

Thy hand in safety keeps my days, 4 Ascended now on high,

And will my slumbers keep.
He asks to rule the earth;

C.M. WATTS.
The merit of His blood He pleads,

(PSALM 5.) And pleads His heavenly birth.

5

Lord's-day Morning. 5

He asks, and God bestows
A large inheritance;
Far as the world's remotest ends

To Thee will I direct my prayer, His kingdom shall advance.

To Thee lift up mine eye ;6 Be wise, ye rulers, now,

2 Up to the hills where Christ is gone And worship at His throne:

To plead for all His saints, With trembling joy, ye people, bow

Presenting at His Father's throne To God's exalted Son.

Our songs and our complaints.

2

LORD, Thou

wilt hear me when I pray,

1

LORD in the morning Thou shalt hear

3 Thou art a God, before whose sight

8

(PSALM 8.) O.M. MONTGOMERY.
The wicked shall not stand;

Divine Glory and Condescension.
Sinners shall ne'er be Thy delight,
Nor dwell at Thy right hand.

LORD, our King, how excellent
10

Thy name on earth is known! 4 But to Thy house will I resort,

Thy glory in the firmament,
To taste Thy mercies there;

How wonderfully shown!
I will frequent Thy holy court,
And worship in Thy fear.

2 Yet are the humble dear to Thee ;

Thy praises are confessed 5 O may Thy Spirit guide my feet

By infants lisping on the knee, In ways of righteousness;

And sucklings at the breast. Make every path of duty straight

3 When I behold the heavens on high,
And plain before my face.

The work of Thy right hand,
C.M.
(PSALM 6.)

ENGLAND. The moon and stars amid the sky,
6
Divine Help in Affliction.

Thy lights in every land:

IN
Nanger, Lord, rebuke me not,

4 Lord, what is man, that Thou shouldst Nor smite my guilty soul;

On him to set Thy love,

[deign Let not Thy righteous wrath be hot ;

Give him on earth awhile to reign, Save me and make me whole.

Then fill a throne above 2 My heart is vexed with sore distress;

5 O Lord, how excellent Thy name! But Thou, O Lord, how long ?

How manifold Thy ways! Return in grace and righteousness,

Let time Thy saving truth proclaim, And make Thy love my song.

Eternity, Thy praise. 3 Death utters forth no note of praiss, The silent grave no prayer:

9

(PSALM 9.) O.M. WATTS. o do not now cut short my days,

God the Sovereign Judge.
Nor leave me to despair!

1
W Thy wonders I'll proclaim (sons;

my
4 Long weary nights of pain and griet
My wasting strength destroy;

Thou, sovereign Judgeof right and wrong, Lord, give these weeping eyes relief,

Wilt put my foes to shame. And change my tears to joy.

2 I'll sing Thy majesty and grace; 5 My prayer is heard—the Lord is nigh;

My God prepares His throne He bids my foes depart;

To judge the wor in righteousness, While shame o'erwhelms them suddenly,

And make His vengeance known. His mercy cheers my heart.

8 Then shall the Lord a refuge prove WATTS.

For all the poor oppressed; ng Christ's timdescension and Glory.

To save the people of His love,

And give the weary rest.

LORD, our Lord, how wondrous
Is Thine exalted name!

[great 4 The men that know Thy name will trust The glories of Thy heavenly state

In Thine abundant grace; Let men and babes proclaim.

For Thou dost ne'er forsake the just, 2 When I behold Thy works on high

Who humbly seek Thy face. The moon that rules the night,

5 Sing praises to the righteous Lord, And stars that well adorn the sky

Who dwells on Zion's hill, Those moving worlds of light;

Who executes His threatening word, 3 Lord, what is man or all his race,

And doth His grace fulfil.
Who dwells so far below,
That Thou shouldst visit him with grace,

10

(PSALM 11.) 6666,89. LYTE. And love his nature so?

Safety and Glory of the Righteous. 4 That Thine eternal Son should bear

Y trust is in the Lord; take a mortal form;

oe can injure me? Made lower than His angels are,

Why bid me like a bird To save a dying worm?

Before the fowler flee? 6 Let Him be crowned with majesty

The Lord is on His heavenly throne, Who bowed His head to death;

Omnipotent to save His own. And be His honours sounded high

2

The wicked may assail, By all things that have breath.

The tempter sorely try, 6 Jesus, our Lord, how wondrous great

All earth's foundations fail, Is Thine exalted name!

All nature's springs be dry; The glories of Thy heavenly state

Yet God is in His holy shrine, Let the whole earth proclaim.

And I am strong while He is mine.
