PSALM S.

PSALM 1.

1 HAPPY the man whose cautious feet

Shun the broad way that sinners go; Who hates the place where atheists meet,

And fears to talk as scoffers do.
2 He loves t' employ his morning light

Among the statutes of the Lord;
And spends the wakeful hours of night,

With pleasure pond'ring o'er his word. 3 He, like a plant by gentle streams,

Shall flourish in immortal green;
And Heav'n will shine with kindest beams

On ev'ry work his hands begin,
4. But sinners find their counsels crost,

As chaff before the tempest flies;
So shall their hopes be blown and lost,

When the last trumpet shakes the skies. 5 In vain the rebel seeks to stand

In judgment with the pious race:
The dreadful Judge, with stern command,

Divides him to a diff'rent place. 6 “Straight is the way my saints have trod; I bless'd the path, and drew it plain: you

would choose the crooked road, And down it leads to endless pain."

PSALM II.

1 Why did the nations join to slay

The Lord's anointed Son?
Why did they cast his laws away,

And tread his gospel down?
2 The Lord, that sits above the skies,

Derides their rage below;
He speaks with vengeance in his eyes,

And strikes their spirits through. 3 “I call him my eternal Son,

“ And raise him from the dead; “I make my holy hill his throne,

“ And wide his kingdom spread. 4 “ Ask me, my Son, and then enjoy

“ The utmost heathen lands:
Thy rod of iron shall destroy

“ The rebel that withstands." 5 Be wise, yè rulers of the earth,

Obey th' anointed Lord;
Adore the King of heav'nly birth,

And tremble at his word. 6 With humble love address his throne;

For, if he frown, ye die:
Those are secure, and those alone,

Who on his grace rely.

I IN vain the erring world inquires

For some substantial good:
While earth confines their low desires,

They live on airy food. 2 Not all the bliss which earth bestows

Can fill the craving mind:

Its highest joys have mingled woes,

And leave a sting behind. 8 Begone, ye gilded vanities;

I seek some solid good :
To real bliss my wishes rise,

The favour of my God.
4 Grant, O my God, this one request :

Oh! be thy grace alone
My ample portion-here I rest,

For heaven is in the boon.

[merged small][ocr errors]

1 LORD, in the morning thou shalt hear

My voice ascending high;
To tħee will I direct my prayer,

To thee lift up mine eye:
2 Up to the hills, where Christ is gone

'To plead for all his saints, Presenting at his Father's throne

Our songs and our complaints.
3 Thou art a God, before whose sight

The wicked shall not stand :
Sinners shall ne'er be thy delight,

Nor dwell at thy right hand. 4 But to thy house will I resort,

To taste thy mercies there;
I will frequent thy holy court,

And worship in thy fear.
5 O may thy Spirit guide my feet

In ways of righteousness! Make every path of duty straight

And plain before my face.
