4 My hope, my steadfast trust,
My soul with comfort knows.
Thy wisdom times them all;
From those that seek his fall.
To me, O Lord, disclose;
To such as fear thy Name,
Dost to the world proclaim!
Who to the just will help afford,
And give the proud their due.
With strength in time of need.
From the xxxii. Psalm of David.
1 HE ’s blest, whose sins have pardon gain'd,
No more in judgment to appear;
And whose repentance is sincere.
The guilt that tortured me within,
And mercy's healing balm pour'd in.
The harden'd sinner shall confound;
Blessings of mercy shall surround.
4 His saints, that have perform'd his laws,
Their life in triumph shall employ;

Their cheerful voices raise;
To sing glad songs of praise.

At his command appear'd.
Before him trembling stand;
’T was fix'd at his command.

And charm their griefs to rest: !!!..

PART II. C. M.
And my instruction hear;
Of his religious fear.
And prosp'rous days would see,
His lips from falsehood free;
3 The crooked paths of vice decline,
And virtue's ways pursue;
And where 't is lost, renew.
With favorable eyes;
Is open to their cries;
Whom mercy can't reclaim,
Blot out their evil name.
When his relief they crave;
And contrite spirit save.
Yet God will save them still;
Their ruin shall derive;
Shall them and their's survive.
Who on his truth depend;
His blessings shall descend.
From the xxxvi. Psalm of David.
PSALM 30. L. M. | // . 2 1 O LORD, thy mercy, my sure hope,
The highest orb of heaven transcends ;
Beyond the spreading sky extends.
Únfathom'd depths thy judgments are;
The whole creation is thy care.
3 Since of thy goodness all partake,
With what assurance should the just
And saints to thy protection trust!
To banquet on thy love's repast;
Of joys that shall for ever last.
Thy presence is eternal day;
To upright hearts thy truth display.
1 THOUGH wicked men grow rich or great,
Thy anger or thy envy raise ;
Whose blooming beauty soon decays.
Secure from danger and from want
Shall all thy earnest wishes grant.
. To perfect every just design;
And as a mid-day sun to shine.
Nor envy the success of crime;
Who trust on him and wait his time.
