7 We by thine anger are consumed,
And by thy wrath dismay'd;
Before thy sight are laid.
Our drooping days we spend;
Like tales that quickly end.
An age that few survive:
To eighty we arrive-
To sorrow turr'd and pain:
And we no more remain.
Does, as he ought, revere?
As more or less we fear.
Of our short days to mind,
May ever be inclined.
And speedily relent!
Of our just doom repent.
Thy early mercy send ;
In joy and comfort spend.
Thy wondrous work be known;
Thy glorious power be shown.
Give thou our work success;
1 HE that has God his guardian made,
Secure and undisturb'd abide;
My God, in whom I will confide.
2 His tender love and watchful care
And from the noisome pestilence;
His truth shall be thy strong defence.
Nor deadly shafts that fly by day,
That in the burning noon-tide slay.
Thy refuge, even God most high;
PART II. III. 3,
Watch and ward o'er thee to keep;
Though in desert wilds thou sleep. 2 On the lion vainly roaring,
On his young, thy foot shall tread;
Thou shalt bruise the serpent's head. 3 Since, with pure and firm affection,
Thou on God hast set thy love,
He will shield thee from above. 4 Thou shalt call on him in trouble,
He will hearken, he will save; Here for grief reward thee double,
Crown with life beyond the grave.
4 For through thy wondrous works, O LORD,
Thou mak'st my heart rejoice;
And shout with cheerful voice.
How deep are thy decrees !
No careless sinner sees.
Like grass, look fresh and gay,
For ever pass away.
And all thy lofty foes,
Shall be o’erwhelm'd with woes.
Shall grow and flourish stiil;
On Lebanon's high hill.
Within his courts shall thrive;
Shall in old age revive.
And God, my strong defence,
1 WITH glory clad, with strength array'd,
The LORD, that o'er all nature reigns,
And the vast fabric still sustains.
Which shall no change or period see;
Art God from all eternity.
And toss the troubled waves on high;
And make the angry sea comply. 4 Thy promise, LoRv, is ever sure,
And they that in thy house would dwell, That happy station to secure,
Must still in holiness excel.
1 Bless'p is the man whom thou, O LORD,
In kindness dost chastise,
Dost lovingly advise.
In seasons of distress :
That stubbornly transgress.
His favor wholly take;
He will not quite forsake.
In all that thou hast done:
Shall in those paths go on.
But that the LORD was near,
My troubled heart to cheer.
In God, the LORD most high: He is my rock, to which I may
For refuge always fly.
2 Into his presence let us haste,
To thank him for his favors past;
The praise that to his Name belongs : 3 For God the LORD, enthroned in state,
Is, with unrivall'd glory, great ;
Whom gods the Heathen falsely call,
Her secret wealth at his command;
Subjected to his empire lies.
By the same sovereign right is his;
That form'd and fix'd the solid land.
And bow with adoration there;
Before the LORD, our Maker, fall.
His flock and pasture-sheep are we:
1 SING to the LORD a new-made song;
Her common patron's praise resound:
Who us has with salvation crown'd: To heathen lands his fame rehearse,
His wonders to the universe.
Above all other deities;
He only rules who made the skies:
Glory and strength his throne surround.
Ascribe due honor to his Name,
Which he, and he alone can claim:
