3 From the first dawning light,
'Till the dark ev'ning rise, For thy salvation, Lord, I wait,
With ever longing eyes. 4 Remember all thy grace,
And lead me in thy truth;
And follies of my youth.
The meek shall learn his ways;
The blessings of his grace. .
He saves my soul from shame;
Thro' my Redeemer's name.
shall the man be found,
And trembles at the rod ?
The secrets of his heart ;
And all his love impart.
Are truth and mercy still,
And love to do his will.
Before their Maker's face :
In their extensive grace.
PSALM 25. Third Part. S. M.
Distress of Soul. 1 INE eyes and my desire
Are ever to the Lord : I love to plead his promises,
And rest upon his word. 2 Turn, turn thee to my soul ;
Bring thy salvation near :
Out of the deadly snare ?
Of my forgiving God,
My wand'ring feet have trod ? 4 The tumult of my thoughts
Doth but enlarge my woe;
Is desolate and low.
My grief anew begins;
And pardon all my sins. 6 Behold the hosts of hell,
How cruel is their hate ! Against my life they rise, and join.
Their fury with deceit. 7 O keep my soul from death,
Nor put my hope to shame : For I have plac'd my only trust
In my Redeemer's name. 8 With humble faith I wait,
To see thy face again : Of Israel it shall ne'er be said,
He sought the Lord in vain.
PSALM 26. L. M. Self-Examination: or, Evidences of grace. 1
prove my ways, And try my reins, and try my heart; My faith upon thy promise stays,
Nor from thy law my feet depart. 2 I hate to walk, I hate to sit
With men of vanities and lies :
Are the abhorrence of mine eyes. 3 Among thy saints will I appear,
With hands well wash'd in innocence ;
The blood of Christ is my defence. 4 I love thy habitation, Lord,
The temple where thine honours dwell ;
And there thy works of wonder tell. 5 Let not my soul be join'd at last
With men of treachery and blood;
PSALM 27. First Part. C. M.
The Church is our delight and safety. 1 HE Lord of glory is my light,
And my salvation too :
What all my foes can do.
grant me an abode,
The temples of my God!
And see thy beauty still ;
Shall hear thy messages of love,
And there enquire thy will. 4 When troubles rise, and storms appear,
There may his children hide :
He makes my soul abide.
Above my foes around;
Prayer and hope.
66 Ye children, seek my grace ; My heart reply'd, without delay,
< I'll seek my Father's face.”
Nor frown my soul away :
In a distressing day. 3 Should friends and kindred, near and dear,
Leave me to want, or die;
And all my need supply.
Had not my soul believ'd,
Nor was my hope deceiv'd.
And keep your courage up:
And far exceed your hope.
PSALM 28. L. M. Prayer and praise, for deliverance from Enemies. 1 O
GOD of grace, my cry attend !
Lest, like the sons of guilt become, Beguil'd by Satan, I descend
With hopeless wretches to the tomb. 2 To thee my humble sighs arise ;
With lifted hands, on thee I call;
Nor leave me in despair to fall.
Nor let my heedless footsteps go,
Down the broad way to endless woe. 4 While peace their flatt'ring lips proclaim,
And love profess, and hope impart ;
And wing their arrows to his heart.
Thy searching eyes their path regard :
And mete their guilt its just reward.
Thy works of wisdom, grace, and pow'r
Shall sink them, that they rise no more. 7 Blest be the Lord, who heard my pray’r ;
The Lord my shield, my help, my song; Who sav'd my soul from sin and fear; And tun'd with praise my thankful tongue,
, 8 In the dark hour of deep distress,
My foes beset, of death afraid ;
