PRAISE

Η Υ Μ Ν Ι.

Lord, o our Lord, how excellent is thy Name in all the Earth ; who haft set thy Glory above the Heavens !

Out of the Mouth of Babes and Sucklings

haft thou ordained Strength, because of thine Enemies, that thou mightest still the Enemy and the Avenger.

When I consider thy Heavens, the Work of thy Fingers, the Moon and the Stars which thou haft ordained ;

What is Man, that thou art mindful of him ? and the Son of Man, that thou visitest him?

O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is thy Name in all the Earth!

I will praise thee, () Lord, with my whole Heart, I will shew forth all thy marvellous Works.

I will be glad and rejoice in thee; I will fing Praise to tby Name, thou Most High.

When mine Enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at thy Presence.

: Pf. viii. 1,2, 3, 4,9.

PS. X. 1,2, 3, 7, 8.

But

But the Lord shall endure for ever; he hath prepared his Throne for Judgment :

And he shall judge the World in Righteousness, he shall minister Judgment to the People in Uprightness.

The Heavens declare the Glory of God, and the Firmament sheweth his handy Work.

Day unto Day uttereth Speech, and Night unto Night sheweth Knowledge.

Give d unto the Lord, O ye Mighty, give unto the Lord Glory and Strength.

Give unto the Lord the Glory due unto his Name; worfhip the Lord in the Beauty of Holiness.

The Voice of the Lord is upon the Waters; the God of Glory thundreth, the Lord is upon many Waters.

The Voice of the Lord is powerful, the Voice of the Lord is full of Majesty.

The Lord fitteth upon the Floods ; yea, the Lord fitteth King for ever.

The Lord will give Strength unto his people, the Lord will bless his People with Peace.

************************

H Y M N. II. I Will e extol thee, O Lord, for thou haft lifeed me up,

me. Sing unto the Lord, Oye Saints of his, and give Thanks at the Remembrance of his Holiness.

For his Anger endureth but a Moment; in his Favour is Life: Weeping may endure for a Night, but Joy cometh in the Morning :

To the End that my Glory may fing Praise to thee, and not be filent: 0 Lord my God, I will give Thanks unto thee for ever.

O how f great is thy Goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee, before the Sons of Men!

Rejoice in the Lord, O ye Righteous; for Praise is. comely for the Upright.

Praise

Praise the Lord with Harp: Sing unto him with the Psaltery, and an Instrument of ten Strings.

Sing unto him a new Song ; play skilfully with a loud Noise.

By the Word of the Lord were the Heavens made, and all the Hoft of them by the Breath of his Mouth.

Let all the Earth fear the Lord, let all the inhabitants of the World stand in awe of him.

For he spake, and it was done ; he commanded, and it stood faft.

The Lord bringeth the Counsel of the Heathen to nought: He maketh the Devices of the People of none Efreet,

Our Soul waiteth for the Lord; he is our Help, and our Shield.

For our Heart Shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy Name.

I will b bless the Lord at all times ; his Praise shall continually be in my Mouth.

My Soul shall make her Boast in the Lord; the Humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.

O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his Name together.

I fought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my Fears.

O taste and see that the Lord is good : Blefsed is the Man that trufteth in him.

O fear the Lord, ye his Saints ; for there is no want to them that fear him.

And my i Soul shall be joyful in the Lord; it shall rejoice in his Salvation,

All my Bones shall say, Lord, who is like unto thee, which deliverest the Poor from him that is too strong for him ; yea, the Poor and the Needy from him that spoileth bim?

And my Tongue shall speak of thy Righteousness, and of thy Praise, all the Day long.

TH

HY * Mercy, O Lord, is in the Heavens ; and thy

Faithfulness reacherh unto the Clouds. Thy Righteousness is like the great Mountains, thy Judg, ments are a great Deep: O Lord, thou preserveft Man and Beast.

How excellent is thy loving Kindness, O God! Therefore the Children of Men put their Truft under the Shadow of thy Wings.

They shall be abundantly satisfied with the Fatness of thy House, and thou shalt make them drink of the River of thy Pleafures.

For with thee is the Fountain of Life: In thy Light shall we fee Light.

Thy Throne, O God, is for ever and ever; the Scepter of thy Kingdom is a right Scepter,

Thou loveft Righteousness, and hateft Wickedness : Therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the Oil of Gladness above thy Fellows.

God mis our Refuge and Strength, a very present Help in Trouble :

Therefore will we not fear, though the Earth be removed, and though the Mountains be carried into the midft of the Sea.

The Lord of Hofts is with us; the God of Jacob is our Refuge. Selah.

O clap your Hands, all ye People, shout unto God with the Voice of Triumph.

For the Lord Most High is terrible ; he is a great King over all the Earth.

God is gone up with a Shout, the Lord with the Sound of a Trumpet.

Sing Praises to God, fing Praises : Sing Praises unto our King, fing Praises.

For God is the King of all the Earth, sing ye Praises with Understanding.

God reigneth over the Heathen : God fitteth upon the Throne of his Holiness,
