Psalm CXXVII. Common Mctre. [% or b)
Success and Prisperity from Gud. T God to build the house deny,
The builders work in vain ; Cities without his watchful eye
An useless guard maintain. 2 In vain we rise before the day,
And late to rest repair; Allow no respite to our toil,
And eat the bread of care.
And in his ways delight,
And quiet sleep by night.
Shall real blessings prove;

Psalm CXXVIII. Long Metre.
Family Duties and Bledings.
And walks by his uncrring word;
And God will ever prove his friend. 2 To him who condescends to dwell
With faints in their obfcurest cell,
And daily let his name be prais d. 3 To him
each afsembled house Present their night and morning vows;
Their servants and their rising race
Sill more delightful blessings prove;
With joys that parents only know.

plalm CXXIX. Long Metre. [* or b]
(A new version.)
And all their projects ftood reveal'd.
When ploughmen break the stubborn ground, 4 But secret arts, and open force
Have never mov'd our stedfast feet;
And he will all their plots defcat.
Nor God nor man their counsels bless ;
No friendly hand shall lend them aid,
Repentance and Pardon.
L thy bar ;
Should thine impartial hand Avenge our fins against thy law,
What mortal flesli could stand ! 2 But fovereign mercy dwells with thee;
Hope dawns amidst our fears ; Divine forgiveness, large and free,
Shall wipe our flowing tears. 3 On thee alone our fouls would wait,
And in thy word would stay; Thy promises can light create,
And turn our night to day.
Long for the morning skies,
And meet them with their eyes :
And more intent than they,
And find a brighter day.
With humble hope, recline;
And fill our hearts with pain ;

Psalm CXXX. Long Metre. [b] ROM deep distress and troubled thoughts,
To thee, my God, I raise my cry;
What ieth could fand before thine eye!
When will my God his face display? 4 My trust is fix'd upon thy word,
Nor shall I trust thy word in vain ;
And find relief from all their pain.
Palm CXXXI. Common Metre.
Humility and Contentment, S there ambition in my heart ?
Search, gracious God, and see ; 3 Or, do I act a haughty part?
Lord, I appeal to thee. 2 Drive from the confines of my
heart All discontent and pride ;
Nor let me, in erronecus paths,
With thoughtless finners glide. 3 Whate’er thine all discerning eye
Sees for thy creature fit,
The profp'rous and the great ;
And odious self-conceit.
Be to my bofom known;
And patience for my own. 6 Feed me with necessary food, I ask not wealth or fame
And sense to praise thy name.
Without remorfe or care ;
