his Name: bring presents, and come into his courts.

9 O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness: let the whole earth stand in awe of him.

10 Tell it out among the heathen, that the Lord is King; and that it is he who hath made the round world so fast that it cannot be moved; and that he shall judge the people righteously.

11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea make a noise, and all that therein is.

12 Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice before the Lord;

18 For he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth ; and with righteousness to judge the world, and the people with his truth.

MORNING PRAYER.
PSALM XCVII.

HE Lord is King, the earth may be glad thereof; yea, the multitude of the isles may be glad thereof.

2 Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.

3 There shall go a fire before him, and burn up his enemies on every side.

4 His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw it, and was afraid.

5 The hills melted like wax at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.

6 The heavens have declared his righteousness, and all the people have seen his glory.

7 Thou, Lord, art higher than all that are in the earth: thou art exalted far above all gods.

8 O ye that love the Lord, see that ye hate the thing which is evil: the Lord preserveth the souls of his saints; he shall deliver them from the hand of the ungodly.

9 There is sprung up a light for the righteous, and joyful gladness for such as are true-hearted.

10 Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous, and give thanks for a remembrance of his holiness.

PSALM XCVIII.

OSING unto the Lord a new song, for he hath done marvellous things.

2 With his own right hand, and with his holy arm, hath he gotten himself the victory.

3 The Lord declared his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen.

4 He hath remembered his mercy and truth toward the house of Israel; and all the ends of the world have seen the salvation of our God.

5 Shew yourselves joyful unto the Lord, all ye lands: sing, rejoice, and give thanks.

6 Let the sea make a noise, and all that therein is; the round world, and they that dwell therein.

7 Let the floods clap their hands, and let the hills be joyful together before the Lord: for he cometh to judge the earth.

8 With righteousness shall he judge the world; and the people with equity.

PSALM XCIX.

THE Lord is King, be the people never so impatient: he sitteth between the Cherubim, be the earth never so unquiet.

2 The Lord is great in Sion, and high above all people.

3 They shall give thanks unto thy Name, which is great, wonderful, and holy.

4 O magnify the Lord our God, and fall down before his footstool,Mbr he is holy.

5 O magnify the Lord our God, and worship him upon his holy hill; for the Lord our God is holy.

EVENING PRAYER.
PSALM C.

O BE joyful in the Lord, all ye lands: serve the Lord with gladness, and come before his presence with a song.

2 Be ye sure that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves: we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

3 O go your way into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and speak good of his Name.

4 For the Lord is gracious, his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth from generation to generation.

PSALM CII.

HEAR my prayer, O Lord, and let my cry come unto thee.

2 Hide not thy face from me in the time of my trouble; incline thine ear unto me when I call; O hear me, and that speedily.

3 For my days are consumed away like smoke, and my bones are burnt up as it were a fire-brand.

4 My heart is smitten down, and withered like grass, so that I forget to eat my bread.

5 For the voice of my groaning my bones will scarce cleave to my flesh.

6 I am become like a pelican in the wilderness, and like an owl that is in the desart.

7 I have watched, and am even as it were a sparrow that sitteth alone upon the house-top.

8 Mine enemies revile me all the day long; and they that are mad upon me, are sworn together against me.

9 For I have eaten ashes as it were bread, and mingled my drink with weeping;

10 And that because of thine indignation and wrath: for thou hast taken me up, and cast me down.

11 My days are gone like a shadow, and I am withered like grass.

12 But thou, O Lord, shalt endure for ever, and thy remembrance throughout all generations.

13 Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Sion; for it is time that thou have mercy upon her, yea, the time is come.

14 And why ? thy servants think upon her stones: and it pitieth them to see her in the dust.

15 The heathen shall fear thy Name, O Lord, and all the kings of the earth thy majesty.

16 When the Lord shall build up Sion, and when his glory shall appear;

17 When he turneth him unto the prayer of the poor destitute, and despisest not their desire.

18 This shall be written for those that come after; and the people that shall be born, shall praise the Lord.

19 For he hath looked down from his sanctuary; out of heaven did the Lord behold the earth;

20 That he might hear the mournings of such as are in captivity, and deliver those that are appointed unto death:

21 That they may declare the Name of the Lord in Sion, and his praise in Jerusalem;

22 When the people are gathered together, and the kingdoms also to serve the Lord.

23 He brought down my strength in my journey, and shortened my days.

24 But I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of mine age: as for thy years, they endure throughout all generations.

25 Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the

foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of thy hands.

26 They shall perish, but thou shalt endure; they all shall wax old as doth a garment:

27 And as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.

28 The children of thy servants shall continue, and their seed shall stand fast in thy sight.

MORNING PRAYER.
PSALM cm.
RAISE the Lord, O my soul, and all that is

within me, praise his holy Name.

2 Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits;

3 Who forgiveth all thy sins', and healeth all thine infirmities;

4 Who saveth thy life from destruction, and crowneth thee with mercy and loving-kindness;

5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things, making thee young and lusty as an eagle.

6 The Lord executeth righteousness and judgment for all them that are oppressed.

7 He shewed his ways unto Moses, his works unto the children of Israel.

8 The Lord is full of compassion and mercy, long-suffering, and of great goodness.

9 He will not alway be chiding: neither keepeth he his anger for ever.

10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins, or rewarded us according to our wickednesses.

11 For look how high the heaven is in comparison of the earth, so great is his mercy also toward them that fear him!

12 Look how wide also the east is from the west, be far hath he set our sins from us.
