Preface 

The prime distinction of this Psalter is its use of the metrical version of 
the Psalms approved September 22d, 1909, by a Joint Committee from 
nine Churches of the Presbyterian family in Canada and the United States. 
These Churches are as follows: the Presbyterian Church in the United States 
of America, the Presbyterian Church in Canada, the Reformed Church in 
America, the United Presbyterian Church of North America, the Reformed 
Presbyterian Church, Synod, the Reformed Presbyterian Church, General 
Synod, the Christian Reformed Church in North America, the Associate 
Reformed Presbyterian Church, and the Associate Presbyterian Church. 
There had been a long-felt desire for a version of the Psalms which would 
satisfy modem literary standards and be recognized as the mutual property 
of the Churches. A movement in this direction was started in 1893, the 
General Assembly of the United Presbyterian Church then appointing a 
Committee to bring the project before the various ecclesiastical bodies. 
The outcome was the creation of a Joint Committee in 1895. After being 
enlarged, it met in Philadelphia on April 8th, 1897, for organization and the 
adoption of a plan of procedure. Though meanwhile there was much prep- 
aration on the part of some of its members, the Committee was not con- 
vened again until 1900, when on April 20th the first session for actual work 
began in New York City, lasting six days. From that date lengthy meetings 
were held twice a year until April, 1905, when the Revision wa3 finish«l 
and sent to the interested Churches for action thereon. Most of these 
Churches commended the progress made, but desired the Joint Committee 
to continue its efforts toward a version of still greater excellence. The 
Joint Committee, to aid it in this matter, waited for reports from the Com- 
mittees representing the Churches, with the criticisms and suggestions they 
might convey. 

The Committee of the United Presbyterian Church, increased and defi- 
nitely instructed by the General Assembly of 1905, set itself very earnestly 
to its duty, proposing practically a new metrical translation of the Psalms. 
The Committee as now constituted consisted of David A. McClenahan, D.D., 
LL.D., Chairman, David R. Miller, D.D., William E. McCuUoch, D.D., 
John McNaugher, D.D., LL.D., William J. Reid, D.D., and William L 
Wishart, D.D. It had the invaluable help of Edward A. Collier, D.D., of 
the Reformed Church in America, and of Charles E. Craven, D.D., of the 
Presbyterian Church in the United States of America, both of whom had 
shown already superior poetic gifts as members of the Joint Committee. 
Three years were spent on the undertaking, the Committee meeting weekly, 
except during the vacation periods. The Committees of the other Churches 
did little in the meantime, being informed of the work that was being prose- 
cuted on so large a scale by the United Presbyterian Committee. In April, 
1909, proof sheets of the Version were forwarded to the members of the 
Joint Committee, who offered emendations and additions, many of which 
were accepted. On September 21st, 1909, the Joint Committee gathered 
in the All^heny Theological Seminary, Pittsburgh, where two days were 



Preface 

occupied with a review of the Version. With some slight retouching, it 
was submitted to the Churches by almost unanimous agreement as the 
Joint Committee's final report. 

The Version was presented to the General Assembly of the United Pres- 
byterian Church at Knoxville, Tennessee, in May, 1909, subject to such 
minor changes as might still be made by the Joint Committee. The Gen- 
eral Assembly overtured it to the Presbyteries, where an overwhelming vote 
in its favor was recorded. In pursuance of this legal approval by the Pres- 
byteries, the General Assembly of 1910, meeting in Philadelphia, formally 
authorized the Version as The Book of Praise of the United Presbyterian 
Church of North America. 

In this Version the inspired Psalms have been rendered into choice 
English verse, while yet the freshness and strength and sober dignity of 
the Hebrew originals have been preserved. Besides the familiar meters, a 
number of more recent type have been introduced, permitting an ampler 
drawing from the copious stores of church music of the past and present. 
The Psalms that are prized most highly have special treatment, there being 
two or more renditions of them, differing metrically. In the thought of 
many this versification of the Divine Hymnal, because of its merit and its 
undenominational character, is destined to* receive broad acceptance and 
become historic. 

Confidently anticipating the indorsement of the Version by the Church, 
the Board of Publication in 1909 appointed an Editorial Committee to pre- 
pare a Psalter, and on November 29th of that year the initiative was taken 
in a task only now happily concluded. In this new manual of praise the 
Psalms are divided into four hundred and thirteen sections. By such par- 
titioning many passages of peculiar interest which otherwise would be un- 
sung are brought under observation. In every instance the Psalm numeral 
and the meter signature are printed prominently. Instead of numbering 
the stanzas of a Psalm consecutively through several sections, the stanzas 
are counted over again in each, and the continuous order is indicated in 
brackets below the music. Supplementing the entire Psalm, there is an 
occasional selection of stanzas that frame up into a good unity. Some of 
these selections belong to the text of the Version; others have been drafted 
by the Editorial Committee. A few choruses, nine in all, are employed. 
The headings on every page embody the keynote or leading strain of the 
several sections, and are designed to contribute meaning to the service of 
song. 

In the search for tunes the Committee has made an exhaustive study 
of the best collections of congregational music in America and Great Britain. 
The tests constantly applied were harmony with the lofty sentiment and 
spiritual utterance of the Psalms, genuinely musical quality, promise of 
permanence, and popular adaptation. Many of the old Psalm tunes retain 
their place, not because of any prescriptive right, but by reason of their 
intrinsic value. Seventeen tunes appear for the first time, having been 
written especially for this book. Each tune is set but once. This rule 
secures a wealth of music, so that this Psalter contains no less than four 
hundred and thirty-six tunes, inclusive of twenty-three alternates. A fixed 
association between tune and words is also gained thereby. Commonly 
marks of expression or speed have been avoided, it being judged better 



Preface 

that organists and choirs should themselves seek such a musical interpreta- 
tion of the Psalms as will be edifying. The Committee was exceedingly 
fortunate in obtaining the co-operation, as expert musical editor, of Mr. 
Charles N. Boyd, Instructor in Church Music in the Western Theological 
Seminary, Pittsburgh. To his skill and painstaking care very much is 
owing. The Committee takes this opportunity to thank the composers and 
publishers who have granted free permission for the use of copyright mate- 
rial. 

Together with the ordinary indexes, a topical index, analyzing and 
classifying the rich content of the Psalms, has been provided. This sup- 
plies a ready reference for both doctrinal and practical themes. The Psalter 
has been made more complete as a service book by the insertion of Respon- 
sive Readings. It is believed that the growing number of congregations 
which have a responsive exercise in their order of worship will welcome this 
new feature. To the Responsive Readings are appended two doxologies 
and the Apostles' Creed for public repetition. 

With this brief preface the book is sent forth upon its sacred mission. 
It presents anew the immortal songs of the Holy Spirit, those matchless 
hymns of the Bible which have been sung in far-off countries and centuries, 
which were chanted by our Lord and His disciples, and which with their 
measured language of religious feeling and devotion will abide until the 
end. In submitting the results of its labor the Committee expresses the 
earnest hope that the Church may be able, more worthily than ever, to 
fulfil the injunction: '*Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; in all 
wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and 
spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts unto God.**

2 Yea, blest is he who makes God's law 

His portion and delight, 
And meditates upon that law 
With gladness day and night. 

3 That man is nourished like a tree 

Set by the river's side; 
Its leaf is green, its fruit is sure. 
And thus his works abide. 

4 The wicked like the driven chaflE 

Are swept from off the land; 
They shall not gather with the just. 
Nor in the judgment stand. 

5 The Lord will guard the righteous well. 

Their way to Him is known; 
The way of sinners, far from God, 
Shall surely be overthrown.

Of the Lord his chief delight,

By the flowing river's side, 
Ever green of leaf and fruitful: 
Thus shall all his works abide.

But the way of evildoers 
Shall by Him be overthrown.

My Anointed I maintain,

This Jehovah's firm decree: 
Thou art My beloved Son, 
Yea, I have begotten Thee. 



All the earth at Thy request 
I will give Thee for Thy own; 

Then Thy might shall be confessed 
And Thy foes be overthrown. 

4 Therefore, kings, be wise, give ear; 

Hearken, judges of the earth; 
Learn to serve the Lord with fear, 

Mingle trembling with your mirth. 
Kiss the Son, lest o'er your way 

His consuming wrath should break; 
But supremely blest are they 

Who in Christ their refuge take.

2 My enemies turn and are scattered in fear^ . 
They stumble and perish because Thou art near; 
For Thou hast defended my right and my cause, 
Thou sittest in judgment, upholding Thy laws. 

3 Rebuked are the nations, the wicked destroyed, 
Their memory perished, their dwelling-place void; 
Enthroned and eternal, Jehovah shall reign. 

The peoples to judge and the right to maintain. 

4 Thou, Lord, art a refuge for all the oppressed; 

All trust Thee who know Thee, and trusting are blest; 

For never, O Lord, did Thy mercy forsake 

The sold that has sought of Thy grace to partake.

Of Hun Who has chosen in Zion to dwell. 

Of Him to Whom justice and vengeance belong, 
Who visits the lowly and overthrows wrong.

And back from death's portals restore me, O Lord, 

That I in the gates of Thy Zion may raise 

My song of salvatiop and show forth Thy praise. 

7 The sins of the nations their ruin have wrought, 
Their own evildoing destruction has brought; 
Li this the Lord's justice eternally stands, 

That sinners are snared in the work of their hands. 

8 The wicked shall perish, the nations shall fall, 
Forgetting their God, Who is God over all; 
But God will remember the prayer of the weak, 
Most surely fulfilling the hope of the meek. 

9 Arise in Thy justice, O Lord, and Thy might. 
No longer let sinners prevail in Thy sight; 
Great Judge of the nations, in judgment appear 
To humble the proud and to teach them Thy fear.

Must leave them all when life Is spent.

Thy glorious face shall see. 
When all the weary night is past.

To view the glories that abide,

2 My prayer to God shall still be raised 

When troubles thick around me close; 
The Lord, most worthy to be praised, 
Will rescue me from all my foes. 

3 When, floods of evil raging near, 

Down nigh to death my soul was 

brought, 
I cried to God in all my fear; 
He heard and great deliverance

4 He came: the earth's foimdations

The hills are shaken from their place, 
Thick smoke and fire devouring break 
In anger dread before His face.

With gloom and darkness imder

Forth through the storm Jehovah flies 
As on the wings of cherubim.

With shafts of light the clouds are 
His foes, dismayed, in terror fly.

And sweep the world's foundations

Because Thy blasts of anger blow, 
O Lord of earth and sea and air.

Of bitter hate and sore distress; 
The Lord, my stay and helper, saves, 
Though mighty foes around me

For good the Lord rewarded me.

2 The precepts of the Lord are right; 

With joy they fill the heart; [ pure, 
The Lord's commandments all are 
And clearest light impart. 

3 The fear of God is undefiled 

And ever shall endure; 



[Selected Stanzas 1 

The statutes of the Lord are truth 
And righteousness most pure. 

They warn from ways of wickedness 

Displeasing to the Lord, 
And in the keeping of His word 

There is a great reward.

Thou didst glory and honor impart; 
Thou hast made Him most blessed forever, O God, 
And Thy presence hath gladdened His heart. 

4 For the King in the strength of Jehovah Most High 

Did unwavering confidence place; 
On the Name of Jehovah He still will rely. 
And shall stand evermore in His grace.

All Thy foes and their ofiFspring shall fail; 
By the evil they planned and the craft they employed 
They shall never against Thee prevail.

When Thy arrows are aimed to destroy, 
O Jehovah, be Thou far exalted in might.

2 But Thou art holy in Thy ways, 
Enthroned upon Thy people's praise; 
Our fathers put their trust in Thee, 
Believed, and Thou didst set them free. 

3 They cried,and, trusting in Thy Name, 
Were saved, and were not put to 

shame; 
But in the dust My honor lies. 
While all reproach and all despise. 

4 My words a cause for scorn they make. 
The lip they curl, the head they shake, 
And, mocking, bid Me trust the Lord 
Till He salvation shall afford. 

5 My trust on Thee I learned to rest 
When I was on My mother's breast; 
From birth Thou art My God alone, 
Thy care My life has ever known. 



7 Unnumbered foes would do Me wrong, 
They press about Me, fierce and 

strong. 
Like beasts of prey theirrage they vent. 
My courage fails. My strength is spent. 

8 Down imto death Thou leadest Me, 
Consumed by thirst and agony; 
With cruel hate ancj anger fierce 

My helpless hands and feet they 
pierce. 

9 While on My wasted form they stare, 
The garments torn from Me they share, 
My shame and sorrow heeding not, 
And for My robe they cast the lot. 

lo O Lord, afar no longer stay; 

Thou My helper, haste, I pray; 
From death and evil set Me free; 

1 live, for Thou didst answer Me. 



6 O let Thy strength and presence cheer, ii I live and will declare Thy fame 

For trouble and distress are near; Where brethren gather in Thy Name; 

Be Thou not far away from Me, Where aU Thy faithful people meet, 

I have no soxurce of help but Thee. I will Thy worthy praise repeat.

The Sins of Youth 



2 The Lord is just and good, 
Instructing those that stray; 
The meek He will in judgment guide 
And make them know His way. 



3 The pathways of the Lord 
Are truth and mercy sure 
To such as keep His covenant 
And testimonies pure.

With Thee I humbly plead 
To pardon my iniquity,

But when I owned my tr^pass, 

My sin hid not from Thee, 
When I confessed transgression, 

Then Thou forgavest me, 

3 So let the godly seek Thee 

In times when Thou art near; 
No whelming floods shall reach them, 

Nor cause their hearts to fear. 
In Tliee, O Lord, I hide me. 

Thou savest me from ill, 
And songs of Thy salvation 

My heart with rapture thrill.

In Him shall all my boasting be, While all the meek re - joice with me. 




2 O magnify the Lord with me, 
Let us to praise His Name agree; 

I sought the Lord, He answered me, 
And from my fears He set me free. 

3 Who look to Him shall walk in light, 
With joy their faces shall be bright. 
Distressed, they cried; the Lord arose 
And saved them out of all their woes. 

4 Around His saints as watch and ward 
Encamps the angd of the Lord; 
That God is good, O taste and see, 
Who trusts in Him shall blessed be.

5 Fear Him, ye saints, and do His will. 
And all your needs He will fulfil; 
Though beasts of forest lack their food, 
Those seeking God shall want no good. 

6 Ye children, come and hear my voice, 
And learn to make God's fear your choice; 
Who seek long life and happy days 
Must learn to walk in wisdom's ways. 

7 Who fears the Lord must keep his tongue 
From evil and his lips from wrong. 
Must do the good, from evil cease, 

And ever seek and follow peace.

And rescues them from all their fears; The hope of sinful men is vain; 

The Lord draws nigh to broken hearts, The wicked, who the righteous hate. 

To contrite spirits help imparts. Their condemnation shall be great. 



3 AfSictions on the good must fall, [all; 
But God will bring them safe through 
From harmful stroke He will defend, 
And sure and full deliverance send.

For all who in His grace confide; 
From condenmation they are clear 
Who trust in Him with holy fear.

3 My soul is joyful in the Lord, 

In His salvation I rejoice; 
To Him my heart will praise accord 

And bless His Name with thankful voice. 
For who, O Lord, is like to Thee, 

Defender of the poor and meek? 
The needy Thy salvation see 

When mighty foes their ruin seek. 

4 Unrighteous witnesses have stood 

And told of crimes beyond belief; 
Returning evil for my good. 

They overwhelm my soul with grief. 
When in affliction they were sad, 

I wept and made their grief my own; 
But in my trouble they are glad 

And strive that I may be o'erthrown. 

5 O Lord, how long wilt Thou delay? 

My soul for Thy salvation waits; 
My thankfulness I will display 

Amid the crowds that throng Thy gates. 
Let not my enemies rejoice 

And wrongfully exult o'er me; 
They speak not peace, but lift their voice 

To trouble those that peaceful be. 

6 My foes with joy my woes survey. 

But Thou, O Lord, hast seen it all; 
O be no longer far away. 

Nor silent when on Thee I call. 
O haste to my deliverance now, 

O Lord, my righteous cause maintain; 
My Lord and God alone art Thou; 

Awake, and make Thy justice plain. 

7 O Lord my God, I look to Thee. 

Be Thou my righteous Judge, I pray; 
Let not my foes exult o'er me 

And laugh with joy at my dismay. 
With shame and trouble those requite 

Who would my righteous cause destroy; 
But those who in the good delight, 

Let them be glad and shout for joy. 

8 Yea, let the Lord be magnified, 

Because Thy servants Thou dost bless; 
And I, from mom till eventide, 

Will daily praise Thy righteousness. 
My soul is joyful in the Lord, 

In His salvation I rejoice; 
To Him my heart will praise accord 

And bless His Name with thankful voice.

Heavy laden, overborne, 
Hiuibled low I make confession, 
For my folly now I mourn. 



4 Weak and woimded, I implore Thee; 

Lord, to me Thy mercy show; 
All my prayer is now before Thee, 
All my trouble Thou dost know. 

5 Darkness gathers, foes assail me, 

But I answer not a word; 
All my friends desert and fail me, 
Only Thou my cry hast heard.

A Plea for Salvation 



2 I am prone to halt and stumble, 
Grief and sorrow dwell within, 
Shame and guilt my spirit humble, 
I am Sony for my sin. 



3 Foes about my soul are closing, 
Full of hatred, false and strong; 
Choosing good, I find opposing 
All who love and do the wrong.

6 And now, O Lord, what wait I for ? 
I have no hope except in Thee; 

Let not ungodly men reproach, 
From all transgression set me free. 

7 Because Thou didst it I was dumb, 
I spoke no word of rash complaint; 

Remove Thy stroke away from me, 
Beneath Thy chastisement I faint 

8 When Thou for his iniquity 
Rebukest and correctest man, 

His beauty is consiuned away. 
How weak his strength, how vain 
his plan. 

5 Man's life is passed in vain desire 9 Lord, hear my prayer, regard my cry. 

If troubled years be spent for gain; I weep, be Thou my comforter; 

He knows not whose his wealth shall be, I am a stranger here below. 

And all his toil is but in vain. A pilgrim as my fathers were. 

10 O spare me. Lord, avert Thy wrath, 
Deal gently with me, I implore, 
That I may yet recover strength 
E'er I go hence and be no more. 

89 



2 While I was dumb my grief was stirred. 

My heart grew hot with thought 
suppressed; 
The while I mused the fire increased. 
Then to the Lord I made request 

3 Make me, O Lord, to know my end. 

Teach me the measure of my days. 
That I may know how frail I am 
And turn from pride and sinful ways. 

4 My time is nothing in Thy sight. 

Behold, my days are but a span; 
Yea, truly at his best estate, 
A breath, a fleeting breath, is man.

I even refrained from speaking good, 
Till sorrow's deeps were stirred. 



4 My end, Lord, make me know, 
My days, how soon they fail; 
And to my thoughtful spirit show 
How weak I am and frail. 



3 My heart was all on fire, s To Thy eternal thought 

With burning thoughts suppressed; My days are but a span; 

My tongue was loosed, my soul's desire To Thee my years appear as nought, 

I then to God addressed. A breath at best is man. 

6 Man lives in empty show, 
His anxious care is vain, 
He hoards his wealth, and does not know 
Who shall possess his gain.

2 Far from the courts of God, my tears 

Have been my food by night and 
day, 
While constantly with bitter sneers, 
Where is thy God, the scoffers say. 

3 With grief I think of days gone by, 

When oft I trod the hallowed way 
To Zion, praising God on high 
With throngs who kept the holy day. 

4 O why art thou cast down, my soul, 

And why so troubled shouldst thou 
be? 
Hope thou in God, and Him extol. 
Who gives His saving help to me. 

5 Since, O my God, my soul is bowed, 

In exile far, with bitter grief, 
I turn my thoughts to Thy abode 
For consolation and relief. 



6 With mighty voice deep calls to deep, 

While raging storms Thy judg- 
ments tell; 
The angry billows o'er me leap, 
The waves of sorrow near me swell. 

7 Though troubles surge, yet through 

the day 
The Lord His gracious help will give. 
And in the night my heart shall pray 
And sing to Him in Whom I live. 

8 To God my Rock I cry and say, 

why hast Thou forgotten me? 
Why go I mourning on my way, 
expressed by foes that know not 
Thee? 

9 With anguish as from piercing sword 

Reproach of bitter foes I hear. 
While day by day, with taunting word 
Where is thy God, the scoffers sneer 



lo O why art thou cast down, my soul, 
And why so troubled shouldst thou be? 
Hope thou in God, and Him extol, 
Who gives His saving help to me.

[Sunzas 5-^] 



2 Like sheep to the slaughter Thy people are given. 
Dispersed through the nations afar we are driven; 
Thou sellest Thy people to strangers for naught, 
Their price to Thy treasure no increase has brought. 

3 Thou makest our neighbors reproach us in pride, 
And those that are near us to scoff and deride; 
A by-word the nations have made of our name, 
With scorn and derision they put us to shame. 

4 Yea, all the day long I behold my disgrace, 
And covered am I with confusion of face; 
The voice of blasphemers and scoffers I hear, 
The foe and avenger against me appear. 

5 All this have we suffered, and never forgot 

To serve Thee, Jehovah, nor falsely have wrought; 
Our heart is not turned and our steps have not strayed. 
Though crushed amid ruins and under death's shade.

An Importunate Prayer 

Magnus John B. Herbert 




I If we have for - got- ten the Name of our God, Or un • to an i - dol our 





hands spread a - broad, Shall not the Al-might-y nn-cov-er this sin? He 





^te 



knows all our hearts and the se - crets with - in. Rise, help, and re- deem us, 




Thy.mer - cywe trust; Rise,help,and re-deem us, Thymer-cy we trust. 




Copjrrlcfat, 1901, by United Presbyterian Board of Publiaitlon 



2 We all the day long for Thy sake are consumed, 
Defeated and helpless, to death we are doomed; 
Then why dost Thou tarry? Jehovah, awake. 
Nor spurn us forever; arise for our sake. 

3 why art Thou hiding the light of Thy face, 
Forgetting our burden of grief and disgrace? 

Our soul is bowed down, yea, we cleave to the dust; 
Rise, help, and redeem us, Thy mercy we trust

2 To their lands they give their name 
In the hope of lasting fame, 
But man's honor quickly flies, 
Like the lowly beast he dies. 
Though such folly mark their way, 
Men approve of what tbey say; 
Death their shepherd, they the sheep 
He within his fold will keep. 



[ Stanias 6-13 ] 

3 O'er them soon shall rule the just, 
All their beauty turn to dust; ' 
God my waiting soul shall save, 
He will raise me from the grave. 
Let no fear disturb your peace 
Though one's house and wealth in- 
crease; 
Death shall end his fleeting day, 
He shall carry naught away. 



4 Though in life he wealth attained, 
Though the praise of men he gained. 
He shall join those gone before, 
Where the light shall shine no more. 
Crowned with honor though he be, 
Highly gifted, strong and free, 
If he be not truly wise, 
Man is like the beast that dies.

That He may justly judge His own; 
My chosen saints togetiier bring 
Who sacrifice to Me alone; 
The heavens His righteousness 

declare, 
For God Himself as Judge is there. 

3 Hear, O my people, I will speak, 

Against thee I will testify; 
Give ear to Me, O Israel, 

For God, thy covenant God, am I; 
I do not spurn thy sacrifice. 
Thy offerings are before My eyes. 



4 I will receive from out thy fold 

No offering for My holy shrine; 
The cattle on a thousand hills 
And all the forest beasts are Mine; 
Each mountain bird to Me is 

known. 
Whatever roams the field I own. 

5 Behold, if I should hungry grow, 

I would not tell My need to thee, 
For'all the world itself is Mine, 
And all its wealth belongs to Me; 
Why should I aught of thee re- 
ceive. 
My thirst or himger to relieve? 



6 Bring thou to God the gift of thanks, 
And pay thy vows to God Most High; 
Call ye upon My holy Name 
In days when sore distress is nigh; 
Deliverance I will send to thee, 
And praises thou shalt give to Me.

Teach Thy wisdom to my heart; 
Make me pure, Thy grace bestow, 
Wash me whiter than the snow.

I O might -y man, why wilt thou boast Thy - self in hate -ful cm - el-ty, 




2 Thy tongue deviseth wickedness, 
A weapon treacherous and keen; 
Thou lovest evil more than good, 
And falsehood in thy sight is clean.

In deadly words thou findest joy, 

The Lord shall pluck thee from thy 

place 

And all thy wickedness destroy.

The Vindication of Righteousness 

4 The good, confirmed in godly fear, $ I put my trust in God alone, 

The pride and folly shall confess For evermore I trust His grace, 

Of those who make not God their And like the trees within His courts 
strength, I flourish in a favored place. 

But trust in wealth and wickedness. 

6 With endless thanks, O Lord, to Thee, 
Thy wondrous works will I proclaim, 
And in the presence of Thy saints 
Will ever hope in Thy good Name.

2 God looked from heaven above 

On all the human race, 

To see if any imderstood, 

If any sought His face. 

3 They all are gone aside, 

Corruption doth aboimd; 
There is not one that doeth good. 
Not even one is foimd. 

4 These men of evil deeds, 

Will they no knowledge gain. 

Who feed upon my people's woes, 

And prayer to God disdain? 



5 The day is drawing nigh 

When they shall fear and quail, 
For God shall scatter and destroy 
Those who His saints assail. 

6 Yea, God will put to shame 

And make them flee away, 
For He will cast them off in wrath 
And fill them with dismay. 

7 O would that Israel's help 

Were out of Zion come! 
O would that God might early bring 
His captive people home! 



8 When God from distant lands 
His exiled ones shall bring, 
His people shall exultant be, 
And gladly they shall sing.

4 O had I wings, I sigh and say, 
Like some swift dove to roam, 
Then would I hasten far away 
And find a peaceful home. 



5 Lo, wandering far my rest should be 
In some lone desert waste; 
I from the stormy wind would flee, 
And to a shelter haste. 



6 Lord, their malice recompense, 

Their wicked tongues confound. 
For in the dty violence 
And bitter strife abound. 

7 They walk her walls both night and 

day, 
Within all vices meet; [sway. 

Oppression, fraud, and crime hold 
Nor leave the crowded street. 



8 No foreign foe provokes alarm. 
But enemies within; 
May God destroy their power to harm 
^d recompense their sin.

2 What time I am afraid 

I put my trust in Thee; 
In God I rest, and praise 

His word, so rich and free; 
In God I put my trust, 

I neither doubt nor fear, 
For man can never harm 

With God my helper near. 

3 All day they wrest my words, 

Their thoughts are full of hate; 
They meet, they lurk, they watch, 

As for my soul they wait; 
Shall they by wickedness 

Escape Thy judgment right? 
O God of righteousness. 

Destroy them in Thy might. 

4 Thou knowest all my woes, 

O treasure Thou my tears; 
Are they not in Thy book. 
Where all my life appears? 



My foes shall backward turn 
When I appeal to Thee, 

For this I surely know. 
That God is still for me. 

5 In God, the Lord, I rest. 

His word of grace I praise, 
His promise stands secure, 

Nor fear nor foe dismays; 
In God I put my trust, 

I neither doubt nor fear. 
For man can never harm 

With God my helper near. 

6 Upon me are Thy vows, 

O God, in Whom I live; 
The sacrifice of praise 

To Thee I now will give; 
For Thou hast saved from death. 

From falling kept me free, 
That in the light of life 

My walk may be with Thee.

More precious far than life to me,

And with uplifted hands will give 

Praise to Thy holy Name; 
When by Thy bounty well supplied, 
Then shall my soul be satisfied,

Grow arrogant and bold; 
Conspiring secretly they think 

That God will not behold; 
They search out more iniquity, 

Their thoughts and plans are deep, 
But God will smite, for He is near 

His saints to guard and keep. 

3 The wicked, by their sins o'ercome, 

Shall soon be brought to shame; 
The hand of God shall yet appear, 

And all shall fear His Name. 
The just shall triumph in the Lord, 

Their trust shall be secure, 
And endless glory then shall crown 

The upright and the pure.

Are strong and still increase, 
Though to disarm their enmity 
My right I yield for peace.

Yet save from shame. Lord God of Hosts,

That those who seek Thy face 
Should see Thy servant put to shame 
And share in my disgrace. 

6 It is for Thee I am reproached. 

For Thee I suffer shame, 
Until my brethren know me not. 
And hated is my name. 

7 It is my zeal for Thy abode 

That has consumed my life; 
Reproached by those reproaching Thee, 
I suffer in the strife. 

8 I wept, with fasting bowed my soul, 

Yet that was made my shame; 
When I in sackcloth clothed myself, 
Their byword I became. 

9 The men who sit within the gate 

With slander do me wrong, 
And they who linger at their cups 
Make me their jest and song.

[Stanxas lo-iS] 

6 My heart is broken by reproach, 

My soul is full of grief; 
I looked in vain for comforters. 
For pity and relief. 

7 They gave me bitter gall for food, 

And taunting words they spake; 
They gave me vinegar to drink, 
My burning thirst to slake. 

8 Their peace and plenty be their snare, 

In blindness let them grope; 
Thy indignation on them pour, 
And desolate their hope. 

9 Because they proudly persecute 

Those whom Thou, Lord, dost smite, 
Let them be blotted from Thy book 
And banished from Thy sight. 



2 Preserve my sinking soul, I pray. 

From tides of hatred save; 
Let not the waters overflow, 
Redeem me from the grave. 

3 Because Thy mercy, Lord, is good, 

O answer me in grace, 
And in the riches of Thy love 
O turn to me Thy face. 

4 Hide not Thy face from my distress, 

A speedy answer send; 
Draw near to me, my soul redeem. 
From all my foes defend. 

5 Well known to Thee is my reproach, 

My shame and my disgrace; 
The adversaries of my soul 
Are all before Thy face.

[Stanaa 19-13] 

2 Then will I praise my God with song, 4 Let heaven and earth and seas rejoice, 
To Him my thanks shall rise, Let all therein give praise, 

And this shall please Jehovah more For Zion God will surely save, 

Than offered sacrifice. Her broken walls will raise. 



3 The meek shall see it and rejoice, 
Ye saints, no more be sad; 
For lo, Jehovah hears the poor 
And makes His prisoners glad. 



5 In Zion they that love His Name 
Shall dwell from age to age; 
Yea, there shall be their lasting rest. 
Their children's heritage.

WiUiam H. Monk 




I Thy lov-ing-kind-ness, Lord, is good and free, In ten-dermer- cy turn Thou unto me; 




Hide not Thy face from me in my dis-tress, In mer-cy hear my prayer,Thy serv-ant bless. 




2 Needy and sorrowful, to Thee I cry; 
Let Thy salvation set my soul on high; 
Then I will sing and praise Thy holy Name, 
My thankful song Thy mercy shall proclaim. 

3 With joy the meek shall see my soul restored. 
Your heart shall live, ye saints that seek the Lord; 
He helps the needy and regards their cries. 
Those in distress the Lord will not despise. 

4 Let heaven above His grace and glory tell. 
Let earth and sea and all that in them dwell; 
Salvation to His people God will give, 

And they that love His Name widi I£m shall live.

2 Cast me not off when hoary age 

Becomes my weary lot, 
And in the da3rs of failing strength 
Do Thou forsake me not. 

3 My foes are strong and confident, 

For I to them appear 
As one forsaken by his God, 
With none to help me near. 

4 My God, be Thou not far from me. 

Make haste to hear my call; 
Ashamed, consumed be all my foes. 
Dishonored let them fall. 

5 But I will ever hope in Thee. 

My ceaseless praise is Thine; 
I will declare Thy countless deeds 
Of truth and grace divine. 

6 Yea, I will tell the mighty acts 

Performed by God the Lord; 
Thy righteousness, and Thine alone. 
With praise I will record. 

7 For from my early youth, O God, 

By Thee have I been taught, 
And faithfully have I declared 
The wonders Thou hast wrought

Shall bow before His throne; 
His enemies shall be subdued, 
And He shall rule alone. 



4 Yea, all the kings shall bow to Him, 
His rule all nations haU; 
He will regard the poor man's cry 
When other helpers fail. 



3 The kings shall come from distant 

lands 5 The poor and needy He shall spare. 

And islands of the sea; And save their souls from fear; 

Oblations they shall bring to Him He shall redeem them from all wrong, 

And wait on bended knee. Their life to Him is dear. 

6 So they shall live, and bring to Him 
Their gifts of finest gold; 
For Him shall constant prayer be made, 
His praise each day be told.

The plagues of their fellows they view from afar.

A Vindication of God's Ways 

4 Despising God's people, they cause them to drain 
The cup of oppression, injustice, and pain; 
They question God's knowledge and boldly defy 
The might and the justice of God the Most High. 

5 The wicked, grown wealthy, have comfort ^d peace, 
While I, daily chastened, see troubles increase. 
And, wronging God's children, I cried in my pain, 

That dean hands are worthless and pure hearts are vain. 

6 I went to God's temple: my doubts were dispelled, 
The end of life's journey I clearly beheld; 

I saw in what peril ungodly men stand 
With sudden destruction and ruin at hand. 

7 As when one awaking forgetteth his dream. 

So God will despise them, though great they may seem; 
My envy was senseless, my grief was for nought. 
Because I was faithless, and foolish my thou^t.

Arise, O God of grace, 
And see the ruin foes have wrought 
Within Thy holy place. 

4 Amid Thy courts are lifted high 

The standards of the foe, 
And impious hands with axe and fire 
Have laid Thy temple low. 

5 They have profaned the holy place 

Where Thou hast set Thy Name, 
Tlie sanctuaries of our God 
Are given to the flame. 

6 We see no signs of power divine. 

No prophet speaks for Thee, 
And none can tell, and none can know. 
How long these woes shall be. 

7 How long, God, shall blasphemy 

And shame reproach our land ? 
Why dost Thou not destroy Thy foes 
With Thy ahnighty hand ? 



8 O God, Thou art our King of old, 

Salvation Thou hast wrought; 
In safety through the mighty sea 
Our fathers Thou hast brou^t. 

9 With mighty arm Thou didst destroy 

The pride of boastful man. 
And for Thy people made a path 
Where mighty waters ran. 

ID The day is Thine, and Thine the 
night, 
And Thine the shining sun; [set 
At Thy command earth's bounds are 
And changing seasons run. 

11 Mark how Thy enemies, O Lord, 

Against Thee proudly speak; 
Preserve Thy saints from wickedmen, 
Be mindful of the meek. 

12 Fulfil, Lord, Thy covenant, 

Our strong protector be. 
For in the earth are dark abodes 
Of crime and cruelty. 

13 Let not Thy saints be put to shame. 

No longer in Thy sight 
Permit Thy foes to vaunt themselves; 
Lord, vindicate the right.

And holds it not in vain, 

For all the wicked of the earth 
Its bitter dregs shall drain.

And all His glory show; 

The righteous He will high exalt 
And bring the wicked low.

Zion's Glory and Safety 



2 Excellent and glorious art Thou, 
With Thy trophies from the fray; 

Thou hast slain the valiant-hearted, 
Wrapt in sleep of death are they; 

When Thy anger once is risen, 
Who can stand in that dread day ? 



3 When from heaven Thy sentence 
sounded, 
All the earth in fear was still, 
While to save the meek and lowly 

God in judgment wrought His will; 

Even the wrath of man shall prabe 

Thy designs it shall fulfil. [ Thee, 



4 Vow and pay ye to Jehovah, 

Him your God forever own; 
All men, bring your gifts before Him, 

Worship Hun, and Him alone; 
Mighty kings obey and fear Him, 

Princes bow before His throne.

To save the meek from wrong and shame. 
The earth stood still and greatly feared; 
Then forth from heaven His sentence came. 

3 The wrath of man shall praise the Lord, 

Restrained by His almighty will; 
Your vows to God the Kmg record, 
Your covenant made with Him fulfil. 

4 Let all to Him their presents bring, 

To Him Whom all the world should fear; 
Ye kings and princes, own your King, 
With reverence and with awe draw near.

2 In long-continued grief I stand 
And seek the Lord with outstretched 

hand; 
I find no comfort for my soul, 
The clouds of darkness o'er me roll. 

3 I think of God and call to mind 
His goodness, yet no peace I find; 

I still pour out my sad complaints, 
My burdened spirit almost faints. 

4 With sleepless eyes and speechkss 

grief 
I search the past to find relief, 
The former years when days were 

bright 
And songs of gladness cheered my 

night. 

5 My constant meditations bring 
My heart to anxious questioning: 
Has God cast off, and will He be 
No longer merciful to me? 

6 Has God forgotten to be kind? 
Shall I His promise faithless find? 
For me shall wrath henceforth replace 
His tender mercies and His grace?

Upon the help of God Most Hi^ 

Thy deeds, Lord, will I relate 
And on Thy wonders meditate; 
Thy way, O God, is just and right, 
And none is like to Thee in might. 

Among the nations Thou hast shown 
Thy wondrous power and made it 

known; 
Thou art the God that mightily 
Redeemed and set Thy people free. 

At sight of Thee the waters fled. 
The quaking clouds their torrents 

shed. 
The lightnings flashed, the thunder 

pealed, 
The trembling earth her fear revealed. 

Thy way, God, was in the sea, 
But, though Thy paths mysterious 

be. 
Thy people Thou didst safely keep 
As shepherds lead their helpless sheep.

2 The thought of God brought me no

But rather made my fears increase; 
With sleepless eyes and speechless pain 
My fainting spirit grieved in vain; 
The blessedness of long ago 
Made deeper still my present woe. 

3 Recalling days when faith was bright, 
When songs of gladness filled my 

night, 
I pondered o'er my grievous woes 
And searching questioning arose: 
Will God cast o£F, and nevennore 
His favor to my soul restore ? 



4 I asked in fear and bitterness, 
Will God forsake me in distress ? 
Shall I His promise faithless find ? 
Has God forgotten to be kind ? 
Has He in anger hopelessly 
Removed His love and grace from me? 

5 These doubts and fears that troubled 

me 
Were bom of my infirmity; 
Though I am weak, God is most high, 
And on His goodness I rely; 
Of all His wonders I will teU,

Will mercy ne'er return? The years of God Most High.

Has God forgotten grace?

2 Instructing our sons we gladly record 

The praises, the works, the might of the Lord, 
For He hath commanded that what He hath done 
Be passed in tradition from father to son. 

3 Let children thus learn from history's light 
To hope in our God and walk in His sight. 
The God of their fathers to fear and obey. 

And ne'er like their fathers to turn from His way. 

4 The story be told, to warn and restrain. 

Of hearts that were hard, rebellious, and vain. 
Of soldiers who faltered when battle was near. 
Who kept not God's covenant nor walked in His fear. 

5 God's wonderful works to them He had shown, 
His marvelous deeds their fathers had known; 
He made for their pathway the waters divide, 
His glorious pillar of cloud was their guide. 

6 He gave them to drink, relieving their thirst. 
And forth from the rock caused water to burst; 
Yet faithless they tempted their God, and they said. 
Can He Who gave water supply us with bread? 

i8o 



Lessons from the Past 

7 Jehovah was wroth because they forgot 

To hope in their God, and trusted I£m not; 
Yet gracious, He opened the doors of the sky 
And rained down tlie manna in richest supply. 

• 

8 With bread from on high their need He supplied, 
And more did He do when thankless they sighed; 

The strong winds commanding from south and from east, 
He sent them abimdance of quail for their feast 

9 Though well they were filled, their folly they chose. 
Till God in His wrath o'erwhelmed them with woes; 
He slew of their strongest and smote their young men, 
But still unbelieving they sinned even then. 

ID Because of their sin He smote with His rod. 

And then they returned and sought for their God; 
Their Rock and Redeemer was God the Most High, 
Yet false were their praises, their promise a lie. 

II Not right with their God in heart and in will, 
They faithlessly broke His covenant still; 
But He, in compassion, reluctant to slay, 
Forgave them and oft turned His anger away. 



12 His pity was great, though often they sinned, 
For they were but flesh, a swift passing wind; 
Yet though His compassion and grace they beheld, 
Th^ tempted and grieved Him and often rebelled. 



13 They limited God, the Most Holy One, 
And hindered the work His grace had begun; 
The hand that was mighty to save they forgot, 
The day of redemption remembering not 



14 Ungrateful and blind, no longer they thought 
Of wonders and signs and mighty deeds wrought, 
Of how all the rivers of Egypt ran red, 
And plagues in God's anger were heaped on their head. 



15 They thought not of how, their freedom to gain. 
In Egypt's abodes the first-bom were slain, 
And how all God's people were led forth like sheep, 
The flock He delighted in safety to keep.

2 Unharmed through the sea, where perished their foe, 
He caused them with ease and safety to go; 

His holy land gaining, in peace they were brought 
To dwcdl in the moimtain the Lord's hand had bought 

3 He gave them the land, a heritage fair; 
The nations that dwelt in wickedness diere 

He drove out before them with great overthrow, 
. And gave to His people the tents of the foe. 

4 Again they rebelled and tempted the Lord, 
Unfaithful they turned to idols abhorred, 

And God in His anger withdrew from them then, 
No longer delighting to dwell among men. 

5 He gave them to death in battle, although 

His glory and strength were scorned by the foe; 
Their young men were fallen, their maidens imwed. 
Their priests slain in battle, none wept for the dead. 

182 



Reminders from Israel's History 

6 Then mercy awoke, the Lord in His might 
Returned, and the foes were scattered in flight; 
Again to His people His favor He showed. 
And chose in Mount Zion to fix His abode. 

7 His servant He called, a shepherd of sheep. 
From tending his flock, the people to keep; 

So David, their shepherd, with wisdom and might 
Protected and fed them and led them aright.

Help us, God of our salvation,

For Thy Name's sake come and save us, 

Take away our sin and shame. 

4 Let Thy foes no longer scorn Thee, 

Now avenge Thy servants slain; 
Loose the prisoner, save the dying.

Then Thy flock, Thy chosen people. 

Unto Thee their thanks shall raise. 
And to every generation

The nations round us mock with scornful jeers. 
O God of Hosts, Thy people now restore;

The nations were thrust out to give it room; 
It took deep root, it spread on every hand. 

The hills were covered with its shade and bloom; 
Its boughs were like great cedars spreading wide; 

They reached the sea, its roots the riverside. 

4 Why hast Thou broken down its circling wall 

Tliat they may pluck who pass along the way? 
Wild beasts from out the wood destroy it all 

And feed upon Thy vine by night and day. 
O God of Hosts, we pray Thee now, restore; 

We shall be saved when shines Thy face once more. 

5 Look down, behold and visit this Thy vine 

Which Thou hast planted with Thy own right hand. 
The branch Thou n^est strong and owned it Thine, 

For it is burned with fire, no more to stand; 
Thy people perish in Thy anger sore 

Because lliy face now shines on them no more.

2 Let the trumpet, far resounding, 

This our festal day proclaim. 
By our fathers' God appointed. 
When from bondage Israel came. 

3 I, thy God, removed thy burdens, 

When thou calledst, set thee free, 
Proved thee in the thirsty desert, 
In the thunder answered thee. 

4 O My people, hear My pleadings; 

that thou wouldst hearken now; 
No strange worship shalt thou oflFer, 

Nor to idols shalt thou bow. 

5 I am God the Lord Who saved thee, 

And from cruel bondage freed; 
Open wide thy mouth of longing; 

1 will satisfy thy need. 

6 But My people would not hearken, 

Yea, they would not yield to Me; 
So I left them in their blin^jhiess, 
Their own counselors to be. 

7 If My people would obey Me, 

Gladly walking in My ways, 
Soon would I, their foes subduing, 
Fill their lips with songs of praise. 

8 All the haters of Jehovah 

Shall His clemency implore, 
And the days of those that love Him 
Shall endure for evermore. 

9 Yea, with wheat the very finest 

I their himger will supply, 
Bid the very rocks yield honey 
That shall fully satisfy.

3 The Most High God has called you 

And set you up on high, 
But ye to Him must answer, 

For ye like men must die. 
Arise, O God Eternal, 

Thou Judge of all the earth, 
Through all Thy ransomed nations 

Send now Thy justice forth. 



Copyright, X901, by United Presbyterian Board of Publicatioa 

2 Do justice for the helpless, 

The orphan's cause maintain. 
Defend the poor and needy, 

Oppressed and wronged for gain. 
When rulers walk in darkness, 

When judges truth forsake, 
The comer-stones are crumbled, 

The firm foundations shake.

Blest fiiey who in Thy strength confide, 

And in whose hearts are Zion's ways; 
Though passing through the vale of tears, 
Like springs of joy Thy grace appears. 

4 Advancing still from strength to strength.

Till every one appears at length 

In Zion's courts before his God; 
Jehovah, God of Hosts, give ear.

No tents of sin give joy so great

Will grace and glory surely give; 
No good will He withhold from one 

Who in His sight shall rightly live;

Who puts his steadfast trust in Thee.

Show Thy mercy e'er I die. 



5 Friend and lover are departed, 

Dark and lonely is my way; 
Lord, be Thou my friend and helper, 

Still to Thee, O Lord, I pray. 
Lord, the God of my salvation, 

Day and night I cry to Thee; 
Let my prayer now find acceptance, . 

Li Thy mercy answer me.

2 I sing of mercies that endiure, 
Forever builded firm and sure, 
Of faithfulness that never dies, 
Established changeless in the skies. 

3 Behold God's truth and grace dis- 

played. 
For He has faithfid covenant made, 
And He has sworn that David's son 
Shall ever sit upon his throne. 

4 The heavens shall join in glad accord 
To praise Thy wondrous works,0 Lord; 
Thy faithfulness shall praise conmiand 
Where holy ones assembled stand. 

5 Who in the heavenly dwellings fair 
Can with the Lord Himself compare ? 
Or who among the mighty shares 
The likeness that Jehovah bears ? 



6 With fear and reverence at His feet 
God's holy ones in council meet; 
Yea, more than all about His tJirone 
Must He be feared, and He alone. 

7 O Thou Jehovah, God of Hosts, 
What mighty one Thy likeness boasts? 
In all Thy works and vast designs 
Thy faithSfidness forever shines. 

8 The swelling sea obeys Thy will, 
Its angry waves Thy voice can still; 
Thy mighty enemies are slain. 
Thy foes resist Thy power in vain. 

9 The heavens and earth, by right 

divine, 
The world and all therein, are Thine; 
The whole creation's wondrous frame 
Proclaims its Maker's glorious Name,

2 My chosen servant I appoint, 
With holy oil his head anoint; 

My hand with him shall still remain, 
My arm hisstrengthshall well sustain. 

3 No enemy shall him affright, 
His adversaries I will smite, 

My faithfidness to him will prove, 
And nevermore My grace remove. 

4 Yea, he shall triimiph in My Name, 
And great shaU be his power and

From sea to sea his mighty hand 
Shall hold dominion o'er the land. 

5 Thou art my Father, he shall cry. 
My God, my rock of refuge high; 
My firstborn son shall he be owned, 
Above the kings of earth enthroned. 

6 For him My mercy shall endure. 
My covenant made with him is siure, 
His throne and race I will maintain 
Forever, while the heavens remain. 

7 Should sons of his my laws forsake. 
My just commands aiid statutes

Then, though My rod their sins re-

My mercy I will not remove.

[Stanias 14-28] 

9 My oath is steadfast, ever sure. 
My servant's race shall still endure; 
His throne forever firm shall stay 
When sun and moon have passed

10 On Thy anointed wrath is poured 
As if Thy covenant were abhorred; 
Thou hast profaned his kingly crown. 
His matchless strength is broken 

down. 

1 1 He is reproached and spoiled of all. 
His enemies upon him fall; 

His beauty is consumed away. 
Forgotten is his kingly sway. 

13 Cut off in youth, his sacred name 
• Is covered now with deepest shame; 
How long,0 Lord, shall wrath abide? 
Thy face forever wilt Thou hide? 

13 Think on my life; O Lord, take 

thought; 
Hast Thou created man for nought? 
What man that lives has power to 

save [grave? 

His soul from death, and from the 

14 Where are Thy mercies which of old 
Were in Thy promises foretold? 
Remember, Lord, the bitter shame 
Heaped on Thy own anointed's 

name. 

15 Blest be the Lord for evermore,[yore. 
Whose promise stands from days of 
His word is faithful now as then; 
Blest be His Name. Amen, Amen.

2 Each succeeding generation 

At Thy mighty word appears; 
Thou dost count in time's duration 

One day as a thousand years. 
Death, with swift and sudden warning, 

Calls us from life's dream away, 
Like the grass, green in the morning, 

Withered e'er the close of day. 

3 In Thy wrath our spirits languish. 

Sinful 'neath Thy searching eye; 
All our days are passed in anguish, 

In Thy wrath we pine and die. 
Threescore years and ten we tarry. 

Fourscore years the strong may 
stay. 
Long the load of grief to carry. 

Till at last we fly away. 



4 Who can weigh Thy just displeasure, 

Who can fear Thee as he ought? 
Teach us now our days to measure 

And to wisdom turn our thought. 
Lord, return, regard our sadness. 

With Thy servants now abide; 
Fill our days with joy and gladness, 

With Thy mercy satisfied. 



5 Long the clouds of evil lower; 

Bless us now with gladsome days; 
Let Thy servants see Thy power, 

Let their children learn Thy praise. 
On us let the grace and beauty 

Of the Lord our God remain, 
Strengthen us for noble duty 

That our work be not in vain.

2 At Thy command man fades and dies 
And newborn generations rise; 
A thousand years are passed away, 
And all to Thee are but a day; 
Yea, like the watches of the night. 
With Thee the ages wing their flight. 



3 Man soon yields up his fleeting breath 
Before the swelling tide of death; 
like transient sleep his seasons pass, 
His life is like the tender grass, 
Luxuriant 'neath the morning sun. 
And withered e'er the day is done. 



4 Man in Thy anger is consumed. 
And unto grief and sorrow doomed; 
Before Thy clear and searching sight 
Our secret sins are brought to light; 

Beneath Thy vrrath we pine and die, 
Our life expiring like a sigh. 

5 For threescore years and ten we wait, 
Or fourscore years if strength be 

great; 
But grief and toil attend life's day. 
And soon our spirits fly away; 
O who with true and reverent 

thought 
Can fear Thy anger as he ought?

Thy saints have dwelt secure; 
Sufficient is Thine arm alone, 
And our defense is sure.

Or earth received her frame, 
From everlasting Thou art God, 
To endless years the same. 

4 A thousand ages in Thy sight 

Are like an evening gone, 
Short as the watch that ends the night 
Before the rising sim.

Bears all its sons away; 
They fly forgotten, as a dream 
Dies at the opening day.

2 O Lord, with joy my heart expands 
Before the wonders of Thy hands; 
Great works, Jehovah, Thou hast 

wrought, 
Exceeding deep Thy every thought; 
A foolish man knows not their 

worth. 
Nor he whose mmd is of the earth. 

3 When as the grass the wicked grow, 
When sinners flourish here below, 
Then is there endless ruin nigh, [high; 
But Thou, O Lord, art throned on 

Thy foes shall fall before Thy might. 
The wicked shall be put to flight. 



4 Thou, Lord, hast high exalted me 
With royal strength and dignity; 
With Thy anomting I am blest, 
Thy grace and favor on me rest; 
I thus exult o'er all my foes, 
O'er all that would my cause op- 
pose. 



The righteous man shall flourish well. 
And in the house of God shall dwell; 
He shall be like a goodly tree. 
And all his life shall fruitful be; 
For righteous is the Lord and just. 
He is my Rock, in Him I trust.

God the Righteous Judge 

3 The widow and the fatherless 

They slay, and helpless strangers smite; 
The faithful God they do not fear, 
They say the Lord will not requite. 

4 Be wise, ye fools and brutish men; 

Shall not He see Who formed the eye? 
Shall not He hear Who formed the ear, 
And judge, Who reigneth, God Most High? 

5 The Lord will judge in righteousness. 

From Him all truth and knowledge flow; 
The foolish thoughts of wicked men, 
How vain they are the Lord doth know. 

6 That man is blest whom Thou, O Lord, 

With chastening hand dost teach Thy will, 
For in the day when sinners fall 
That man in peace abideth still. 

7 The Lord will not cast off His own, 

Nor His inheritance forsake; 
Just judgment shall at length prevail. 
And upright hearts- shall courage take. 

8 Who will arise for my defense 

Against the wicked in the land? 
Against iniquity and wrong 
What man for me will valiant stand? 

9 Unless the Lord had been my help. 

My life had quickly passed away; 

But when my foot had almost slipped, 

O Lord, Thy mercy was my stay. 

10 Amid the doubts that fill my mind 

Thy comforts, Lord, bring joy to me; 

Can wickedness, though throned in might, 

Have fellowship, O Lord, with Thee? 

11 The wicked, in their might arrayed. 

Against the righteous join their power, 
But to the Lord I flee for help. 
He is my refuge and my tower. 

12 Our God, the refuge of His saints. 

Will fight against iniquity; 
Avenger of the innocent 
The Lord omnipotent will be.

Exalted over all He reigns; 

He holds the valleys in His hand, 
He makes the mighty mountains 

stand; 
To Him belong both land and sea, 
Creator of the world is He. 

3 O come and let us worship now, 
Before our Maker let us bow; 

We are His sheep and He our God, 
He feeds our souls in pastures broad; 
He safely leads us in the way; 
O come and heed His voice to-day. 



4 Take heed and harden not your heart 
As did your fathers, nor depart 
From God to follow in their ways; 
For with complaints instead of praise, 
With doubt instead of faith confessed, 
They put His mercy to the test. 



5 Take heed that ye provoke Him not 
As did your fathers, who forgot, 
With erring heart, God's holy ways 
And grieved Him all their sinful days; 
To whom in wrath Jehovah sware. 
My promised rest they shall not share.

Is Jehovah Whom we sing; 
Over idol-gods victorious, 

Great is He, our God and King. 
In His hand are earth's deep places. 

His the strength of all the hills. 
His the sea whose bounds He traces. 

His the land His bounty fills. 

3 To the Lord, such might revealing. 

Let us come with reverence meet. 
And, before our Maker kneeling, 
Let us worship at His feet. 



He is our own God and leads us, 
We the people of His care; 

With a shepherd's hand He feeds us 
As His flock in pastures fair. 

While He proffers peace and pardon 

Let us hear His voice to-day. 
Lest, if we our hearts should harden. 

We should perish in the way; 
Lest to us, so unbelieving, 

He in judgment shall declare: 
Ye, so long My Spirit grieving. 

Never in My rest can share.

2 Before His presence let us come 

With praise and thankful voice; 
Let us sing psahns to Him with grace, 
With grateful hearts rejoice. 

3 Jehovah is a mighty King, 

Above all gods His throne; 
The depths of earth are in His hand, 
The mountains are His own. 



[ Selected Stanxaa] 

4 To Him the spacious sea belongs, 

He made its waves and tides; 
And by His hand the rising land 
Was formed, and still abides. 

5 O come, and bowing down to Him 

Our worship let us bring; 
Yea, let us kneel before the Lord, 
Our Maker and our King.

2 The Lord is great above all gods, 

Let glad hosannas rise; 
The heathen gods are idols vain; 

Jehovah made the skies. 
Great honor is before His face, 

And majesty divine; 
Within His holy dwelling-place 

Both strength and beauty shine. 

3 Let all the peoples of the earth 

Give glory to the Lord, 
Give Him the glory due His Name 

And strength to Him accord; 
With offerings come ye to His courts, 

Li holy beauty bow. 
Let all the earth with reverence come 

And serve Jehovah now. 



4 To all the nations of the earth 

The blessed tidings bring; 
Tell all the world Jehovah reigns. 

The universal Kmg. 
The world shall therefore stand un- 
moved, 

Established by His might; 
And just is He to judge the wrong 

And vindicate the nght. 

5 Let heaven and earth and sounding sea 

To Him glad tribute bring; 
Let field and wood and all therein 

Before Jehovah sing; 
For, lo. He comes to judge the earth, 

And all the world ^11 see 
His everlasting faithfulness. 

His truth and equity.

Tell heathen nations far and near; 
Great b the Lord, and great His praise, 
And Him alone let nations fear. 

3 The heathen gods are idols vain; 

The shining heavens the Lord supports; 
Both light and honor lead His train, 
While strength and beauty fill His courts. 

4 Let every tongue and every tribe 

Give to the Lord due praise and sing; 
All glory unto Him ascribe, 
Come, throng His courts, and offerings bring. 

5 O fear and bow, adorned with grace. 

And tell each land that God is King; 
The earth He founded in its place. 
And justice to the world wJl bring. 

6 Let heaven be glad, let earth rejoice, 

The teeming sea resound with praise; 
Let waving fields lift high their voice. 
And all the trees their anthem raise. 

7 So let them shout before our God, 

For, lo. He comes. He comes with might. 
To wield the sceptre and the rod, 
To judge the world with truth and right.

2 Thou, enthroned above the skies, 
Wilt for Zion's help arise; 

Let Thy grace to her appear. 
For the promised time is near. 

3 If with love compassionate 

We, Thy servants, mourn her state. 
Wilt not Thou, O gracious Lord, 
Help in Zion's need afiFord? 

4 Lord, Thy glory shall appear. 
Kings and nations then shall fear; 
And Thy Name shall be adored 
When Thy Zion is restored.

2 O praise and bless the Lord, my soul, 

And ever thankful be; 
Forget not all the benefits 
He has bestowed on thee. 

3 He freely pardons all thy sins, 

And He is strong to save; 
He heals thy sickness, soothes thy pain, 
And ransoms from the grave. 



5 The Lord will judge in righteousness 

For all that are oppressed; 
To all His saints His gradous acts 
And ways are manifest. 

6 The Lord is ever merdful, 

And unto anger slow; 
His loving-kinchiess and His grace 
In rich abimdance flow. 



4 He crowns thee with His grace and 7 He will not chide for evermore, 

And,with His strength endued,[love. He turns His wrath away; 

Thou mountest up with eagle's wings. He has not strictly marked our sins. 

Thy joyous youth renewed. Our evil to repay. 

8 As heaven is high above the earth. 
So great His mercy proves; 
As far from us as east from west 
He all our sin removes.

The Fatherly Love of God 




MU: ^dhi-^^^mnuiViJ 



Such love the Lord be- stows on them Who wor • ship Him in fear. 




2 The Lord remembers we are dust, 

And all our frailty knows; 
Man's days are like the tender grass. 
And as the flower he grows. 

3 The flower is withered by the wind 

That smites with blighting breath; 
So man is quickly swept away 
Before the blast of death. 



[SUiuM 9-13 ] 

4 Unchanging is the love of God, 

From age to age the same, 
Displayed to all who do His will 
And reverence His Name. 

5 Those who His gracious covenant keep 

The Lord will ever bless; 
Their children's children shall rejoice 
To see His righteousness.

3 Yea, the Lord is full of mercy 

And compassion for distress, 
Slow to anger and abundant 

In His grace and tenderness. 
He will not be angry alway, 

Nor will He forever chide; 
Though we oft have sinned against Him, 

Still His love and grace abide. 

4 As the heavens are high above us, 

Great His love to us has proved; 
Far as east from west is distant, 

He has all our sins removed. 
As a father loves his children. 

Feeling pity for their woes. 
So the Lord to those who fear Him 

Mercy and compassion shows.

The earth He has founded her station to keep, 
And wrapped as a vesture about her the deep. 

3 O'er moimtain and plain the dark waters raged; 
His voice they obeyed, the floods were assuaged; 
Uplifting the mountains He ordered a bound. 
Forbidding the waters to cover the ground. 

4 He causes the springs of water to flow 

In streams 'mid the hills and valleys below; 
Beside them with singing the birds greet the day. 
And there the beasts gather their thirst to allay.

2 The trees which the Lord has planted are fed, 
And over the earth their branches are spread; 
They keep in their shelter the birds of the air, 
The life of each creature the Lord makes His care. 

3 The seasons are fixed by wisdom divine, 

The slow changing moon shows forth God's design; 

The sun in his circuit his Maker obeys, 

And running his journey hastes not nor dela}rs. 

4 The Lord makes the night, when, leaving their lair. 
The lions creep forth, God's boimty to share; 

The Lord makes the morning, when beasts steal away 
And men are beginning the work of the day. 

5 How many and wise Thy works are, O Lord! 
The earth with the wealth of wisdom is stored; 
The sea bears in safety the ships to and fro. 
And creatures unnumbered it shelters below. 

6 Thy creatures all look to Thee for their food; 
Thy hand opens wide, they gather the good; 
Thy face Thou concealest, in anguish they yearn; 
Their breath Thou withholdest, to dust they rettun.

I O praise the Lord, His deeds make known, And call up - on His Name; 




2 Let hearts rejoice that seek the Lord, 4 The Lord our God is God alone. 



His holy Name adore; 
Seek ye Jehovah and His strength, 
Seek Him for evermore. 

3 Ye children of God's covenant. 
Who of His grace have heard. 
Forget not all His wondrous deeds 
And judgments of His word. 



All lands His judgments know; 
His promise He remembers still, 
While generations go. 

S While yet our fathers were but few, 
Sojourners in the land. 
He sware that Canaan shouldbetheirs. 
And made His covenant stand. 



250 



The Unfailing Faithfulness of God 



6 He suffered none to do them wrong 

In all their pilgrim way; [proved 
Yea, for their sake were kings re- 
And covered with dismay. 

7 His stem command restrained their 

foes 
And filled them with alarm: 
Touch not My own anointed ones, 
Nor do My prophets harm. 

8 He wholly broke the staff of bread 

And called for famine sore, 
And He prepared His people^s way 
By sending one before. 

9 Then Joseph, sold to slavery, 

With cruel chains was bound; 
Till his prediction came to pass, 
Distress and grief he foimd. 

10 The king released him from his bonds 

And made him rule the land. 
Subjecting chiefs and senators 
To his controlling hand. 

11 To Egypt Israel followed then. 

And there grew great and strong. 
Until their friends became their foes 
And did them grievous wrong. 

12 God sent His servant Moses then. 

And Aaron, whom He chose; 
Great signs and wonders they dis- 
played 
To terrify their foes. 



13 In darkness they were taught to fear 

God's great and holy Name; 
On man and beast, on vine and field. 
His awful judgment came. 

14 He smote the first-bom in the land. 

The chief of all their strength. 
Enriched His people with the spoil 
And brought them forth at length. 

15 He led them forth in health and 

strength. 
None weak in all their band, 
And Egypt, filled with fear, rejoiced 
To see them leave the land. 

16 He spread a cloud to cover them, 

Most glorious and bright, 
And made a fiery pillar shine 
To give them light by night. 

17 At their request He sent them quails, 

And bread of heaven bestowed; 
And from the rock, to quench their 
thirst, 
The living waters flowed. 

18 His sacred word to Abraham 

He kept, though waiting long, 
And brought His chosen people forth 
With joy and thankful song. 

19 The lands and toil of wicked men 

He gave them to possess, 
That Uiey might keep His holy laws; 
Jehovah praise and bless.

2 Yea, they despised the pleasant land,

And tempted Him to make them fall 
And scatter them abroad. 

3 They sacrificed to heathen gods, 

And God their sin repaid; 
Then holy wrath avenged the wrong, 
And so the plague was stayed. 

4 The Lord approved the righteous act 

Of him who sin abhorred. 
And honored him for evermore

5 By wicked strife they angered God, 

His wrath they did provoke; 
And, stirred by their rebellious cries,

2 To Jehovah then they cry 

In their trouble, and He saves, 
Sends compassionate reply, 

Gives the health their spirit craves, 
Rescues them with gracious aid 
From the snares their folly laid. 

3 Sons of men, awake to praise 

God the Lord Who reigns above, 
Gracious in His works and ways, 

Wondrous in redeeming love; 
Let them all thank-offerings bring, 
Celebrate His deeds, and sing.

Reeling, they like drunken men 
Find their skill and power overthrown; 
None can save but God alone. 

3 To Jehovah then they cry 

In their trouble, and He saves, 
. Drives the darkness from the sky, 

Calms the storm and stills the waves, 
Makes their sad forebodings cease, 
To their haven guides in peace.

Strong to bless and to destroy.

2 Against me slanderous words are flung 
From many a false and lying tongue; 
Without a cause men hurl at me 

The shafts of deadly enmity. 

3 My good with evil they repay, 
My love turns not their hate away; 
The part of vengeance, Lord, is Thine, 
To pray, and only pray, is mine. 

4 Since love appeals to him in vain, 
The slave of sin let him remain; 
Against him let his foe be turned. 

His sin be judged, his prayer be spumed. 

5 Let sudden death upon him break. 
His office let another take. 

His children and his widowed wife 
Pursue the homeless beggar's life. 

6 Let creditors consume his toil 

And strangers make his wealth their spoil; 
Let none in pity heed his claim. 
Cut off his race, blot out his name. 

7 His parents' sins be not forgot 

Till Thou from earth his memory blot, 
Since he remembered not to show 
Compassion to the sons of woe. 

8 He cursing loved and blessing loathed; 
Unblest, with cursing he is clothed; 
For thus the justice of the Lord 

My adversaries will reward. 

9 O God, the Lord, for Thy Name's sake 
Let me of Thy good grace partake; 
My need is great, and great Thou art 
To heal my wounded, stricken heart.

Divine Retribution for Evil

Like shadows swift my days decline, 
And when my foes my weakness see 
They shake the head in scorn at me. 

11 O Lord my God, Thy help I crave, 
In Thy great loving-kindness save; 
Before my foes Thy merqr show; 

That Thou dost help me make them know. 

12 What though they curse, if Thou wilt bless? 
Then joy shall banish my distress. 

And shame shall overwhelm the foes 
Who would Thy servant's way oppose. 

13 Thanksgiving to the Lord I raise, 
The multitude shall hear my praise, 
For by the needy God will stand 

To save them from oppression's hand.

2 The Lord with me, I will not fear 
Though human might oppose; 
The Lord my helper, I shall be 

Triimiphant o'er my foes. 
No trust in men, or kings of men. 

Can confidence afford, 
But they are strong, and sure their 
trust, 
Whose hope is in the Lord. 



3 Though nations compass me about, 
The swarming hosts of sin. 
Yet in the Name of God the Lord 

I shall the victory win. 
The Lord hath helped and kept me 
safe 
When foes were fierce and strong; 
The Lord my Saviour is become. 
He is my strength and song. 



4 Salvation's jo3rful song is heard 

Where'er the righteous dwell; 
For them God's hand is strong to save 

And doeth all things well. 
I shall not die, but live and tell 

The wonders of the Lord; 
He hath not given my soul to death. 

But chastened and restored.

Praise and Perfect Peace 



2 Deceit and falsehood I abhor, 

But in Thy law delight; 
Throughout the day I praise Thy Name, 
For all Thy ways are right. 

3 Great peace has he who loves Thy law, 

Unmoved, he safely stands; 
For Thy salvation I have hoped 
And followed Thy commands. 

4 Thy testimonies I have kept. 

They are my chief delight; 
Observant of Thy law and truth, 
I walk before Thy sight.

To praise Thy word I lift my voice; 
O Lord, be Thou my present help, 

For Thy conmiandments are my choice. 

3 For Thy salvation I have longed, 

And in Thy law is my delight; 
Enrich my soul with life divine, 
And help me by Thy judgments right. 

4 Thy servant like a wandering sheep 

Has lost the path and gone astray; 
Restore my soul and lead me home, 
For Thy commands I would obey.

2 What woe for falsehood can atone, 

Or punish the deceitful tongue, 
The tongue whose speech consumes like fire, 
Whose words like deadly shafts are flung? 

3 Alas for me, whose lot is cast 

With those who find their joy in strife I 
With those who hate the paths of peace 
I long have dwelt and spent my life. 

4 In thought and act I am for peace. 

Peace I pursue and ever seek; 
But those about me are for strife, 
Though I in love and kindness speak.

For the Lord my soul is waiting 
More than watchers in the night, 

More than they for morning watching, 
Watching for the morning light. 

Hope in God, ye waiting people; 

Mercies great with Hun abound; 
With the Lord a full redemption 

From the guilt of sin is found.

2 Lord, if Thou shouldst mark trans- 4

Li Thy presence who shall stand? 
But with Thee there is forgiveness, 
That Thy Name may fear command. 

3 For Jehovah I am waiting, 5 

And my hope is in His word. 
In His word of promise given; 
Yea, my soul waits for the Lord.

2 Far away God's ark was resting; 

It is with His people now; 
We will go into His temple, 

At His footstool we will bow. 
With the ark Thy might revealing, 

Enter, Lord, into Thy rest; 
Let Thy priests be clothed with 
justice, 

Let Thy joyful saints be blest. 

3 Let the king behold Thy favor 

For Thy servant David's sake, 
Unto whom a sacred promise, 

Sure and faithful, Thou didst make. 
K his children keep Thy covenant 

And Thy testimony own, 
Then, as Thou, O Lord, hast promised. 

They shall sit upon his throne. 



4 Thou, the Lord, hast chosen Zion, 

Thou hast ever loved her well; 
This My resting-place forever, 

Here, Thou sayst, I choose to dwell. 
Siurely I will bless and help her. 

Feed her poor, her saints make glad. 
And her priests shall stand before Me 

In salvation's garments clad. 



I will cause the might of David 

Ever more and more to grow. 
On the path of My Anointed 

I will make a lamp to glow; 
All His enemies shall perish, 

I will cover them with shame. 
But His crown shall ever flourish. 

Blessed be His holy Name.

Supreme in dominion is He, 
Performing His will and good pleasure 
In heaven and in earth and the sea. 

4 His hand guides the douds in their courses, 

The lightning flames forth at His will, 
The wind and the rain He rdeases 
His sovereign designs to fulfil. 

5 To ransom His people from bondage 

Great wonders and signs He displayed; 
He smote all the first-bom of Egypt, 
Till Pharaoh made haste and obeyed. 

6 Great nations and kings that opposed Him 

Were smitten by God's mighty hand; 
Their riches He gave to His people, 
And made them inherit the land. 

7 Thy Name shall abide, O Jehovah, 

Through all generations renowned; 
The Lord is the judge of His people, 
His merdes forever abound.

Can speak not, nor hearken, nor see; 
Like th^ shall thdr makers be hdpless, 
Unblest shall their worshipers be.

The lightnings flash at His conmiand. 
He holds the tempest in Hb hand.

And in the Church His praise proclaim; 
In Zion is His dwelling-place; 

Praise ye the Lord, show forth His grace.

A song required tx) mock our wrongs; 
Our spoilers called for mirth, and cried, 
Come, sing us one of Zion's songs. 

3 Not songs but sighs tx) us belong 

When Zion's walls in ruin lie; 
How shall we sing Jehovah's song 
While in an alien land we die? 

4 O Zion fair, God's holy hill, 

Wherein our God delights to dwell. 
Let my right hand forget her skill 
If I forget to love thee well. 

5 If I do not remember thee. 

Then let my tongue from utterance cease, 
If any earthly joy to me 
Be dear as Zion's joy and peace. 

6 Remember, Lord, the dreadful day 

Of Zion's cruel overthrow; 
How happy he who shall repay 
The bitter hatred of her foe.

Thou, Lord, dost understand; 
Before me and behind art Thou, 
Restraining by Thy hand. 

3 If I the wings of morning take 

To some remotest land, 
Still I shall be upheld by Thee 
And guided by Thy hand. 



[ Selected Stauas] 

4 From Thee, L(5rd, I cannot hide, 

Though darkness cover me; 
The darkness and the light of day 
Are both alike to Thee. 

5 Search me, God, and know my heart. 

Try me, my thoughts to know; 
O lead me, if in sin I stray. 
In paths of life to go.

2 O Lord, I have confessed Thee 

To be my God alone; 
O hear my supplication 

And be Thy mercy shown; 
God the Lord, my Saviour, 

My shield amid the strife, 
Let not the wicked triumph 

Who plot against my life. 



3 Let evil smite the evil 

And cause their overthrow; 
The needy and afflicted 

The Lord will help, I know; 
Thy saints, redeemed from evil. 

Their thanks to Thee shall give; 
The righteous and the upright 

Shall in Thy presence live.

2 When in the morning unto Thee 

I lift my voice and bring my plea, 
Then let my prayer as incense rise 
To God en^oned above the skies. 

3 When mito Thee I look and pray 
With lifted hands at close of day, 
Then as the evening sacrifice 
Let my request accepted rise. 



5 O righteous God, Thy chastisement. 
Though sent through foes, in love is 

sent; 
Though grievous, it will profit me, 
A heading ointment it shall be. 

6 While wickedness my foes devise, 

To Thee my constant prayer shall rise; 
When their injustice is overthrown 



My gentleness shall still be shown. 
4 Guard Thou my thoughts, I Thee im- 7 Brought nigh to death and sore dis- 



plore. 

And of my lips keep Thou the door; 
Nor leave my sinful heart to stray 
Where evil footsteps lead the way. 



tressed, 

O Lord, my God, in Thee I rest; 
Forsake me not, I look to Thee, 
Let me Thy great salvation see. 



8 Themselves entangled in their snare, 
Their own defeat my foes prepare; 
O keep me, Lord, nor let me fall. 
Protect and lead me safe through all.

No friendly guardian at my hand, 
No place of flight or refuge near, 
And none to whom my soul is dear. 

4 O Lord, my Saviour, now to Thee, 
Without a hope besides, I flee. 



To Thee, my shelter from the strife. 
My portion in the land of life. 

5 Be Thou my help when troubles

For I am w:^k and foes are strong; 
My captive soul from prison bring,

Sets the mourning prisoner free. 
Raises those bowed down with anguish, 
Makes the sightless eyes to see.

And the stranger He befriends. 
Helps the fatherless and widow, 
Judgment on the wicked sends.

2 The starry hosts He numbers, 

He calls them all by name; 
His greatness and His wisdom 

His wondrous works proclaim; 
The meek He lifts to honor, 

He humbles sinful pride; 
Give thanks to Him and utter 

His praises far and wide. 

3 The heavens with clouds He covers, 

He sends the cheering rain; 
The slopes of all the mountains 

He fills with grass and grain; 
To beast and bird His goodness 

Their daily food supplies; 
He cares for all His creatures, 

Attentive to their cries. 



4 No human power delights Him, 

No earthly pomp or pride; 
He loves the meek who fear Him 

And in His love confide; 
Then praise thy God, O Zion, 

His gracious aid confess; 
He gives thee peace and plenty. 

His gifts thy children bless. 

5 He sends His swift commandment. 

And snow and ice enfold 
The world, and none are able 

To stand before His cold. 
Again He gives commandment; 

The winds of smnmer blow. 
The snow and ice are melted. 

Again the waters flow. 



6 His statutes and His judgments 

He makes His people know; 
To them as to no others 

His grace He loves to show; 
For matchless grace and mercy 

Your grateful praises bring; 
To Him give thanks forever. 

And Hallelujah sing.

2 Our Lord is great, He calls by name 

And counts the stars of night; 
His wisdom is imseardiable, 

And wondrous is His might. 
The Lord upholds the poor and meek, 

He brings the wicked low; 
Sing praise to Him and give Him thanks 

And all His goodness show. 

3 No human might, no earthly pride, 

Delights the Lord above; 
In them that fear Him He delights, 

In them that trust His love. 
O Zion, praise the Lord thy God, 

His wondrous love confess; 
He is thy glory and thy strength, 

He will thy children bless.

( Praise ye, praise ye the Lord In yon - der heaven - ly height ; ) 
(Ye an - gels, all His hosts, In joy - ful praise u - nite; ) 




Praise Him, ye highest heavens. 
Praise Him, ye clouds that roll, 

Created by His power 
And under His control, 

Ye heavens that stand eternally, 

Established by His firm decree. 

Ye creatures in the sea 

And creatures on the earth. 
Your mighty Maker praise 

And tell His matchless worth; 
Praise Him, ye stormy winds that blow, 
Ye fire and hail, ye rain and snow. 

Ye hills and mountains, praise. 

Each tree and beast and bird; 
Ye kings and realms of earth. 

Now let your praise be heard; 
By high and low, by young and old, 
Be all His praise and glory told. 

By all let God be praised, 

For He alone is great; 
Above the earth and heaven 

He reigns in glorious state; 
Praise HSm, ye saints, who know His grace 
And ever dwell before His face.

♦ •• 



The following selections of Scripture have been arranged to be read 
responsively by the minister and people in the church service. No effort 
has been made to secure progress of thought, this being judged needless and 
undesirable in a devotional exercise. The selections appear in the order in 
which they occur in the Bible, excepting an occasional second Psalm in a 
few numbers and the special selections at the close. It has seemed best, on 
the whole, that these selections should be arranged verse by verse rather 
than by unfamiliar divisions, however better adapted as responses these 
might be. For fixed seasons and appointments nine particular readings 
have been provided, beginning with No. loi, though there are some others 
in the series which may be employed fittingly. The text is that of the 
American Standard Bible, permission for its use having been given by 
Thomas Nelson and Sons, the owners of the copyright. The lines printed 
in Roman letter are to be read by the minister. The lines set inward from 
the margin and printed in black letter are to be read by the congregation.

Exodus XX 

ND God spake all these words, 
saying, 

I am Jehovah thy God, Who 
brought tiiee out (rf the land of 
Egypti out of the house of bondage. 

Thou shalt have no other gods before 
Me. 

Thou shalt not make unto thee a 
graven imagOi nor any likeness of 
any thing that is in heaven above, 
or that is in the earth beneath, or 
that is in the water under the earth : 

Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto 
them, nor serve them; for I Jehovah 
thy God am a jealous God, visiting 
the iniquity of the fathers upon the 
children, upon the third and upon the 
fourth generation of them that hate 
Me, 



And showing lovingldndness unto 
thousands of them tliat love Me 
and keep My commandments. 

Thou shalt not take the Name of 
Jehovah thy God in-vain; for Jehovah 
will not hold him guiltless that taketh 
His Name in vain. 

Remember the sabbath day, to 
keep it holy. 



Six days shalt thou labor, and do all 
thy work; 

But the seventh day is a sabbath 
unto Jehovah thy God: in it thou 
shalt not do any work, thou, nor 
thy son, nor thy daughter, thy man- 
servant, nor thy maid-servant, nor 
thy cattle, nor thy stranger tliat is 
within thy gates: 

For in six days Jehovah made heaven 
and earth, the sea, and all that in 
them is, and rested the seventh day: 
wherefore Jehovah blessed the sab- 
bath day, and hallowed it. 

Honor thy father and thy mother, 
tliat thy days may be long in the 
land which jfehovaih thy God giveth 
thee. 

Thou shalt not kill. 

Thou shalt not commit adultery. 

Thou shalt not steal. 

Thou shalt not bear false witness 
against thy neighbor. 

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's 
house, thou shalt not covet thy 
neighbor's wife, nor his man-servant, 
nor his maid-servant, nor his ox, nor 
his ass, nor anything that is thy 
neighbor's.

of them, they are more than can 
be numbered. 

Sacrifice and offering Thou hast no 
delight in; mine ears hast Thou 
opened: burnt-offering and sin-offer- 
ing hast Thou not required. 

Then said I, Lo, I am come; in the 
roll of the book it is written of me : 

I delight to do Thy will, O my God; 
yea, Thy law is within my heart. 

I have proclaimed glad tidings of 
ri^teousness in the great assem- 
bly ; lo, I will not refrain my lips, 
O Jehovah, Thou knowest 

I have not hid Thy righteousness 
within my heart; I have declared 
Thy faithfulness and Thy salvation; 
I have not concealed Thy loving- 
Idndness and Thy truth from the 
great assembly. 

Withhold not Thou Thy tender 
mercies from me, O Jehovah; let 
Thy lovingkindness and Thy truth 
continually preserve me. 

For innumerable evils have com- 
passed me about; mine iniquities 
have overtaken me, so that I am 
not able to look up; they are more 
than the hairs of my head; and my 
heart hath failed me. 

Be pleased, O Jehovah, to deliver 
me: make haste to help me, O 
Jehovah.

Psalms xui, xliii 



AS the hart panteth after the 
water brooks, so panteth my 
soul after Thee, O God. 

My soul thirsteth for God, for the 
living God : when shall I come and 
appear before God? 

My tears have been my food day 
and night, while they continually say 
unto me. Where is thy God? 

These things I remember, and 
pour out my soul within me, how 
I went with the throng, and led 
them to the house of God, with the 
voice of joy and praise, a multitude 
keeping holyday. 

Why art thou cast down, O my soul? 
And why art thou disquieted within 
me? Hope thou in God; for I shall 
yet praise Him for the help of His 
countenance. 

O my God, my soul is cast down 
withm me: all Thy waves and Thy 
billows are gone over me. 

Yet Jehovah will command His lov- 
ingkindness in the day-time; and in 
the night His song shall be with me, 
even a prayer unto the God of my 
life. 

Why art thou cast down, O my 
soul? And why art thou dis- 
quieted within me? Hope thou in 
God; for I shall yet praise Him, 
Who is the help of my countenance, 
and my God. 

Judge me, O God, and plead my cause 
against an ungodly nation: oh de- 
liver me from the deceitful and un- 
just man. 

For Thou art the God of 



strength; why hast Thou cast me 
o£f? Why go I mourning because 
of the oppression of the enemy? 

Oh send out Thy light and Thy 
truth; let them lead me: let them 
bring me unto Thy holy hill, and to 
Thy tabernacles. 

Then will I go unto the altar of 
God, unto God my exceeding joy; 
and upon the harp will I praise 
Thee, O God, my God. 

Why art thou cast down, O my soul? 
And why art thou disquieted within 
me? Hope thou in God; for I shall 
yet praise Him, Who is the help of 
my countenance, and my God.

AND it came to pass, as Jesus was 
praying apart, the disciples were

I am? 

And they answering said, John the 
Baptist ; but others say, Elijah ; and 
others, that one of the old prophets 
is risen again. 

And He said unto them. But who say 
ye that I am? And Peter answering 
said. The Christ of God. 

But He charged them, and com- 
manded them to tell this to no man ; 

Saying, The Son of man must suffer 
many things, and be rejected of the 
elders and chief priests and scribes, 
and be killed, and the third day be 
raised up. 



And He said unto all, If any man 
would come after Me, let him deny 
himself, and take up his cross 
daily, and follow Me. 

For whosoever would save his life 
shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose 
his life for My sake, the same shall 
save it. 

For what is a man profited, if he 
gain the whole world, and lose or 
forfeit his own self? 

For whosoever shall be ashamed of 
Me and of My words, of him shall the 
Son of man be ashamed, when He 
cometh in His own glory, and the 
glory of the Father, and of the holy 
angels. 

But I tell you of a truth. There are 
some of them that stand here, who 
shall in no wise taste of death, till 
they see the kingdom of God. 

And it came to pass about eight days 
after these sayings, that He took with 
Him Peter and John and James, and 
went up into the mountain to pray. 

And as He was praying, the fashion

and His raiment became white and 
dazzling. 

And behold, there talked with Him 
two men, who were Moses and Elijah; 

Who appeared in glory, and spake

about to accomplish at Jerusalem. 

Now Peter and they that were with

But he that entereth in by the door

To him the porter openeth; and the

When he hath put forth all his own,

given all things into His hands, and

Then He poureth water into the

the towel wherewith He was girded. 

So He cometh to Simon Peter. 
He saith unto Him, Lord, dost Thou 
wash my feet? 

Jesus answered and said unto him. 
What I do thou knowest not now; 
but thou shalt understand hereafter. 

Peter saith unto Him, Thou shalt 
never wash my feet. Jesus an-

thou hast no part with Me. 

Simon Peter saith unto Him, Lord,

Jesus saith to him, He that is 
bathed needeth not save to wash 
his feet, but is clean every whit: 
and ye are clean, but not all. 

For He knew him that should betray

NOW I make known unto you, 
brethren, the gospel which I 
preached unto you, which also ye 
received, wherein also ye stand. 

By which also ye are saved, if ye 
hold fast the word which I preached 
unto you, except ye believed in 
vain. 



For I delivered unto you first of all 
that which also I received : that Christ 
died for our sins according to the 
scriptures ; 

And that He was buried; and that 
He hath been raised on the third 
day according to the scriptures ; 

And that He appeared to Cephas; 
then to the twelve; 

Then He appeared to above five 
hundred brethren at once, of whom 
the greater part remain until now, 
but some are fallen asleep ; 

Then He appeared to James; then to 
all the apostles; 

And last of all, as to the child 
untimely bom, He appeared to me 
also. 

For I am the least of the apostles, 
that am not meet to be called an 
apostle, because I persecuted the 
church of God. 

But by the grace of God I am what 
I am: and His grace which was 
bestowed upon me was not found 
vain; but I labored more abund- 
antly than they all: yet not I, but 
the grace of God which was with 
me. 

Whether then it be I or they, so we 
preach, and so ye believed. 

Now if Christ is preached that He 
hath been raised from the dead, 
how say some among you that there 
is no resurrection of tiie dead? 

But if there is no resurrection of the 
dead, neither hath Christ been raised: 

And if Christ hath not been raised, 
then is our preaching vain, your 
faith also is vain. 



Yea, and we are found false witnesses

of God ; because we witnessed of God 
that He raised up Christ: Whom He 
raised not up, if so be that the dead 
are not raised. 

For if the dead are not raised, 
neither hath Christ been raised: 

And if Christ hath not been raised, 
your faith is vain; ye are yet in your 
sins. 

Then they also that are fallen asleep 
in Christ have perished. 

If we have only hoped in Christ in 
this life, we are of all men most 
pitiable.

OUR light affliction, which is for 
the moment, worketh for us 
more and more exceedingly an eter- 
nal weight of glory; 

While we look not at the things 
which are seen, but at the things 
which are not seen: for the things 
which are seen are temporal; but 
the things which are not seen are 
eternal. 

For we know that if the earthly house 
of our tabernacle be dissolved, we 
have a building from God, a house 
not made with hands, eternal in the 
heavens. 

For verily in this we groan, longing 
to be clothed upon with our habita- 
tion which is from heaven : 

If so be that being clothed we shall 
not be found naked. 

For indeed we that are in this 
tabernacle do groan, being bur- 
dened; not for that we would be 
unclothed, but that we would be 



clothed upon, that what is mortal 
may be swallowed up of life. 

Now He that wrought us for this 
very thing is God, Who gave unto 
us the earnest of the Spirit. 



therefore always of good 
courage, and knowing that, whilst 
we are at home in the body, we are 
absent from the Lord 

(For we walk by faith, not by Vght) ; 

We are of good courage, I say, and 
are willing rather to be absent 
from the body, and to be at home 
with the Lord. 

Wherefore also we make it our aim, 
whether at home or absent, to be 
well-pleasing unto Him. 

For we must all be made manifest 
before the judgment-seat of Christ ; 
that each one may receive the 
things done in the body, according 
to what he hath done, whether it 
be good or bad.

For the Lord Himself shall descend 
from heaven, with a shout, with

with the trump of God: and the 
dead in Christ shall rise first; 

Then we that are alive, that are left,

in the air: and so shall we ever be
