How they stood round like savage beasts ! Like lions gaping to devour,
When God had put him in their power ! 5 They wound his heal, his hands, his feet,

Obedience to God due from all Men,
To God their homage pay
One sov'reign Lord obcy. 2 'T'is his prerogative supreme
O'er subject kings to reign,
Who does the world sustain.
His goodness shall confess;
Their bounteous patron bless. 4 With humble confidence to God
Let all for aid repair ;
For he who first their beings gave,
Will make them still his care.

Common Metre. [X] God's tender Care of bis People. Tils pleased to be my guide;
HE Lord himself, the mighty Lord, The Shepherd by whose constant care
My wants are all supply'd.
And gently there repose ;
Refrefhing water flows.
And, to his endless praise,
In his most righteous ways.
From fear and danger free ;
Defend and comfort me.
He does my table spread ;
With oil anoints my head.
Through all my life extend,

God our Shepherd.
And feed me with a shepherd's care ;
My noon day walks he shall attend,
And all my midnight hours defend, 2 When in the sultry glebe I faint,
Or on the thirsty mountain pant ;
Amid the verdant landskips fiow.
Through devious, lonely wilds i stray,
And streams shall murmur all around. 4 Though in the paths of death I tread,
With gloomy horrors overspread,

The Man whom God approves.
The Lord's her fulness is ;
By sovereign right are his. 2 He fix'd the land, and spread the seas,
With all which they contain; Then man in his own image formid,
O'er all these works to reign, 3 But for himself, this Lord of all
One chosen feat design'd. :
O who shall to that facred hill
Defir'd admittance find? 4 The man whose hands and heart are pure,
Whose thoughts from pride are free' ; Who honest poverty prefers
To gainful perjury. $ This is the man on whom the Lord
Shall shower his bletings down; Whom God his Saviour thall be pleas'd
With righteousness to crown. 6 Such is the character of those
Who seek the face of God; Whose happy feet shall stand within The place of his abode.
Psalm XXIV, Long Metre. [X] Heaven tbe Rifidence of Saints, and the Ascenson of Chrift. THIS spacious earth is all the Lord's,
And men and worms and beasts and birds; He rais’d the building on the seas,
And gave it for their dwelling place.
Thy palace, Lord, above the sky;
And dwell fo near his Maker, God ? 3 He who abhors and fears to sin,
Whose heart is pure, whose hands are clean,
And clothe his soul with righteousness.
Who seek the God of Jacob's face
