Let not the wonders he hath wro't,
Be lost in silence and forgot.
And cures the pains that nature feels ;
Our wasting life from threat'ning graves.
And fills our souls with heavenly food.

Divine Mercy in the mid of Fudgment.
Whole mercies fo

And when his wrath is felt;
And lighter than our guilt.
Above the ground we tread ; So far the riches of his grace
Our highelt thoughts exceedo
subdues our sins;
Doth all our guilt remove. 5 The pity of the Lord
To those who fear his name, Is such as tender
feel i He knows our feeble frame. 6 Our days are as the grass,
Or like the morning flower; When blafting winds spread o'er the field,
It withers in an hour. 7 But thy compassion, Lord,
Through ages fhall endure; And children's children ever sind Thy words of promise sure.

proclaim, Which rais'd at first this curious frame,
From mean and lifeless duit. 2. By duft supported still it stands,
Prepar'd in various forms ;
To nourish mortal worns.
The fabric of a day !
And moulder back to clay. 4 Yet frail and feeble as we are,
This thought is our reposc,
That he who first our frame did rear,
Its various weakness knows. 5 He views us with a pitying eye,
While struggling with our load ; In pains and dangers he is nigh,
Our Father and our God. 6 Gently supported by his love,
We tend to realms of peace; Where ev'ry pain shall far remove, And ev'ry frailty cease.
Psalm CIII. Fourth Part. C. M. [x]
Thy kingdom wide extends ;

And wait to do his will,
Whose pleasure ye fulfil.
The orders of your King,
And join the praise they fing.
O let my heart and tongue Join with the universal frame, In this eternal song,

Psalm CIV. First Part. L. M. [X
Divine Majesty and Goodness in Storm and Rain.
To God the song of triumph raise ;
What pomp, what glory, Lord, are thine ! 2 Light forms his robe, and round his head
The heavens their ample curtain spread;
The chariot of the King of kings! 3. Around him rang'd in awful state,
Dark silent storms attendant wait;
The mandates of his sovereign will. 4 From earth's low margin to the skies
He bids the dulky vapours rife;
Commands th' imprison'd winds to fly. 5 The lightning's pallid sheet expands,
And showers descend on furrow'd lands;
The torrent rolls in swelling pride. 6 Till spent its wild impetuous force,
And settled in its destin'd course,
And life in various forms sustains.
Thy wise and all-controlling sway;

The Scaman's Prager.
How various are thy works! how wise ! Thy power throughout all fpace extends,
Sinks through all depth, all height transcends ! 2 Not earth alone beholds her shores
Enrich'd by thy exhaustless stores ;
The spreading feas thy gifts contain. 3 Beneath, unnumber'd fishes swarm,
Of diff'rent size, of various form ;
Borne on the bosom of the side. 4 Here, huge Leviathan is seen
To sport the mighty waves between;
Driv'n from the feas beneath the pole. 5 On high, the concave we behold
In living blue, or sparkling gold ;
Spread to th' horizon's utmost bound. 6 The winds and waves obey thy will ;
The needle owns thy power and kill;
