3 The foften'd ridges of the field
Permit the corn to spring ; The vallies rich provision yield,
The grateful labourers fing. 4 The little hills on every side
Rejoice at falling showers ;
Perfume the air with flowers.
Promise a joyful crop ;
Revive the reaper's hope. 6 The various months thy goodness crowns,
How bounteous are thy ways! The bleating flocks spread o'er the downs, And shepherds shout thy praise.
WATTS. Psalm LXV. ' Long Metre. [X]
A New Version. TAY
HY praise, O God, in Zion waits ;
All flesh shall crowd thy sacred gates, To offer facrifice and prayer,
And pay their willing homage there. '? What though iniquity prevail,
And feeble flesh be prone to fail ;
away. 3 Bleft is the man approv'd by thee,
And brought thy holy courts to see !
Shail largely feast his longing mind. 4 Great God, by thy Almighty hard
Tac crerlailing mountains liand :
And every storm and every flood
Obey thy all commanding nod.
Fill the wide earth with fad surprise ;
Rising and setting suns rejoice.
Confess thee, Father of the year. 7

And joy the notes prolong.
How glorious are his ways !
The sea his voice obeys,
Whilst lfrael pass’d the flood ;
A guardian in their God.
Ye faints fulfil his praise ;
And guides our doubtful ways.

5 Lord, thou hast prov'd our suffering fouls,
To make our graces shine ;
The metal to refine.
We march at thy command ; Led to possess the promis'd place, By thy unerring hand.
WATTS. Psalm LXVI. Second Part. C. M. [*]
Praise to God for bearing Prayer, JOW shall my folemn vows be paid
To that Almighty Power ; Who heard the long requests I made In
my distressful hour.
To make his mercies known;
The wonders he hath done. 3 If fin lay cover'd in my heart,
When praise employ'd my tongue, The Lord had shewn me no regard,
Nor I his praises sung.
Has set my spirit free ;
And cause the brightness of thy face
On all thy church to line.

May thro’ the world be known; Whilft diftant lands their homage pay,
And thy falvation own. 3 Let all the nations join
To celebrate thy fame;
To praise thy glorious name. 4
O let them shout and fing,
In humble, pious mirth;

Ten thousand angels filld the sky ;
Like chariots that attend thy state. 2 Not Sinai's mountain could appear
More glorious when the Lord was there
And struck the chosen tribes'with awe. 3 How bright the triumph none can tell,
When the rebellious powers of hell,
He sent his promis'd Spirit down,

Who fills our hearts with joy and food; Who pours his blessings from the skies,
And loads us with his rich supplies.
