4 Well, if our day's must fly,
We'll keep their end in sight;
5 They'll waft us sooner o'er
This life's tempestuous sea:
Soon we shall reach the peaceful shore
PSALM 91.-L. M. [*]
Ver. 1-7. Safety in public diseases & dangers. HE that hath made his refuge, God,
Shall find a most secure abode ;
Shall walk all day beneath his shade, And there at night shall rest his head. 2 Then will I say, "My God, thy power "Shall be my fortress and my tower: "I, that am form'd of feeble dust, "Make thine almighty arm my trust." 3 Thrice happy man! thy Maker's care Shall keep thee from the fowler's suare; Satan, the fowler, who betrays Unguarded souls a thousand ways.
4 Just as a hen protects her brood (From birds of prey that seek their blood) Under her feathers, so the Lord Makes his own arm his people's guard.
5. If burning beams of noon conspire
God is their life, his wings are spread
6 If vapours with malignant breath,
Israel is safe: The poison'd air
What though a thousand at thy side,
PSALM 91.-C. M. [*]
Ver. 9-16. Protection from death, guard of angels, victory and deliverance.
E sons of men, a feeble race,
Come, make the Lord your dwelling place
2 No ill shall enter where you dwell;
And sweep the wicked down to hell,
3 He'll give his angels charge to keep
To watch your pillow while you sleep,
Their hands shall bear you, lest you fall
And sent t' attend his sons?
5 Adders and lions ye shall tread;
6 "Because on me they set their love,
7" My grace shall answer when they call;, "In trouble I'll be nigh;
My power shall help them when they fall, "And raise them when they die.
"Those that on earth my name have known,
PSALM 92.-1st Part. L. M. [*]
WEET is the work, my God, my King, To praise thy name, give thanks and To shew thy love by morning light, [sing, And talk of all thy truth at night.
2 Sweet is the day of sacred rest,
No mortal cares shall seize my breast;
3 My heart shall triumph in my Lord,
4 Fools never raise their thoughts so high;'
.5 But I shall share a glorious part,
7 Then shall I see, and hear, and know
PSALM 92.-2d Part. L. M. [*] Ver. 12, &c. The church is the garden of God.
1 LORD, 'tis a pleasant thing to stand
In gardens planted by thy hand;
Let me within thy courts be seen,
2 There grow thy saints in faith and love,
Time, that doth all things else impair,
Laden with fruits of age, they shew
PSALM 93.-L. M. [*]
The eternal and sovereign God. Jirded with majesty and might: [EHOVAH reigns! he dwells in light,
The world, created by his hands,
Still on its first foundation stands.
S Like floods the angry nations rise,
4 Forever shall thy throne endure:
Becomes the dwellings of thy grace.
PSALM 93.-1st Part. P. M. [*]
This robe of state are strength and majesty:
This wide creation rose at his command,
Built by his word, and 'stablished by his hand :
