PSALM 85.-2d Part. L. M. L*]
Ver. 9, &c. Salvation by Christ. 1 ALVATION is forever nigh
The souls that fear and trust the Lora; And grace, descending from on high,
Fresh hopes of glory shall afford. 2 Mercy and truth on earth are met, Since Christ the Lord came down from
heav'n : By his obedience, so complete,
Justice is pleas'd, and peace is given. 3 Now truth and honour shall abound,
Religion dwell on earth again,
PSALM 86.- C. M. [b]
MONG the princes, earthly gods,
There's none hath power divine ; Nor is their nature, mighty Lord,
Nor are their works, like thine. 2 The nations thou hast made shall bring
Their offerings round thy throne;, For thou alone dost wondrous things, ,
For thou art God alone.
Teach me thy heavenly ways,
In God my Father's praise.
\ Great is thy mercy, and my tongue
Shall those sweet wonders tell, How by thy grace my sinking soul Rose from the deeps of hell.
PSALM 87.-L. M. [*] The church the birth-place of the saints ; or,
Jews and Gentiles united in the Christian church. YOD in his earthly temple lays
Foundations for his heavenly praise :' He likes the tents of Jacob well,
But still in Zion loves to dwell. 2 His mercy visits every house
That pay their night and morning vows; But makes a more delightful stay
Where churches meet to praise and pray. S What glories were describ'd of old!..
What wonders are of Zion told!
Thy fame shall Tyre and Egypt know 4 Egypt and Tyre, and Greek and Jew,
Shall there begin their lives anew :
The bill where living waters spring.
Of natives in his holy mount,

David. 1 FOREVER sball my song record
The truth and merey of the Lord;
Mercy and truth forever stand,
Like heaven, establish'd by his hand. 2 Thus to his Son he sware, and said,
“ With thee my cov'nånt first is made ; “ In thee shall dying sinners live;
"Glory and grace are thine to give. 3 “ Be thou my Prophet, thou my Priest ;
• Thy children shall be ever blest; • Thou art my chosen King; thy throne
" Shall stand eternal, like my own.
“So much my image or my love;
Then what can earth to thee eompare ? 5 “ David, my servant, whom I chose,
“ To guard my flock, to crush my foes,
“ Was but a shadow of my Son.”
Jesus her Saviour and her King;
PSALM 89.-1st Part. C. M. [b] .

The mercies of the Lord ;
How faithful is his word.
Shall firm as heaven endure :
Th' eternal grace is sure.
wo, 3 How long the race of David held
The promis'd Jewish throne !
To David's greater Son.
A throne above the skies ; The meanest subject of his grace
Shall to that glory rise. 5 Lord God of Hosts, thy wondrous ways.1
Are sung by saints above;
To thinc unchanging love.
C. M. [*] Ver. 7, &c. The power and majesty of God;
or, reverential worship.
And bow before the Lord :
And tremble at his word. 2. How terrible thy glories be!
How bright thine armies shine! Where is the power that vies with thee?
Or truth compard with thine ?
On thy supporting hand;
Move round at thy command.
And rule the boisterous deep ;
The rolling billows sleep 5 Heaven, earth, and air, and sea are thine,
And the dark world of hell i
How did thy arm in vengeance shine,
When Egypt durst rebel !
Yet wondrous is thy grace ;
Invite us near thy face.
Ver. 15, &c. A blessed gospel. 1 LEST are the souls that hear and know
Peace shall attend the paths they go,
And light'their steps surround.
Through their Redeemer's name;
Nor Satan dares condemn.
Strength and salvation gives :
Thy God forever lives.
PSALM 89.-4th Part. C. M. [b] Ver. 19, &c. Christ's mediatorial kingdom
or, his divine and human nature.
“On my Almighty Son.
“ Among your mortal race,
• The spirit of my grace. S“ High shall he reign ou David's throne,
"My people's better King;
HEAR what the Lord in vision said,
