PSA L M I.
T YOW bleft is he, who ne'er consents

by ill Advice to walk; 1 1 Nor stands in Sinner's Ways, nor fits

where Men profanely talk! 2 But makes the perfect Law of God

his Business and Delight; Devoutly reads therein by Day,

And meditates by Night. 3 Like some fair Tree, which, fed by Streams,

with timely Fruit does bend, He still shall fuurish, and Success

all bis Designs attend. 4 Ungodly Men, and their Attempts,

no lasting Root shall find; Untimely blasted, and dispers'd

like Chaff before the Wind. Their Guilt Thall strike the Wicked dumba

before the Judge's Face: No formal Hypocrite shall then

amongst the Saints have Place. 6 For God approves the just Man's Ways,

to Happiness they tend ;
But Sinners, and the Paths they tread,
shall both in Ruin end.

PSA L M IV.
Lord, thou art my righteous Judge,

to my Complaint give ear;

Thors

Thou still redeem'st me from Distress,

have Mercy, Lord, and hear. 2 How long will ye, 0 Sons of Men,

to bot my Fame, devise? How long your vain Deligns pursue,

and spread malicious Lies! 3 Consider, that the righteous Man

is God's peculiar Choice; And when to him I make my Pray'r,

he always hears my Voice. 4 Then stand in Awe of his Commands,

flee ev'ry Thing that's ill; Commune in Private with your Hearts,

and bend them to his Will. 5 The Place of other Sacrifice

let Righteouso ess luppiy;
And let your Hope, securely fixt,
on God alone rely.

PSALM VIII.
I Thou to whom all Creatures bow

U within this earthly Frame,
Thro’all the World how great art thou !

how glorious is thy Name!
2 In Heav’n thy wond'rous Acts are sung,

nor fully reckon'd there;
And yet thou mak’ft the Infant-Tongue

thy boundless Praise declare. 3 Thro' thee the Weak confound the Strong,

and crush their haughty Foes; And so thou quell'it the wicked Throng, that thee and thine oppose.
