(1, 2. 4, 5. 7.)

N. V.
LET all the lands with shouts of joy O come, behold the works of God,
To God their voices raise ;

And then with me you'll own,
Sing psalms in honour of His Name,

That He to all the sons of men
And spread His glorious praise.

Has wondrous judgments shown.
Through all the earth the nations round He by His power for ever rules;
Shall Thee their God confess;

His eyes the world survey;
And with glad hymns their awful dread Let no presumptuous man rebel
Of Thy great Name express,

Against His sov’reign sway.

(1, 2, 3, 4.)

N. V.
To bless Thy chosen race,

In mercy, Lord, incline;
And cause the brightness of Thy face

On all Thy saints to shine.
That so Thy wondrous way
May through the world be known,
Whilst distant lands their tribute pay,

And Thy salvation own.
Let diff'ring nations join

To celebrate Thy fame;
Let all the world, O Lord, combine

To praise Thy glorious Name.
O let them shout and sing

With joy and pious mirth,
For Thou, the righteous Judge and King,

Shalt govern all the earth.

I.-(1, 2, 3. 6. 9.) N. V. IN The I put my stedfast trust,

Defend me, Lord, from shame ;
Incline Thine ear, and save my soul,

For righteous is Thy Name.
Be Thou my strong abiding-place,

To which I may resort;
'Tis Thy decree that keeps me safe ;

Thou art my rock and fort.
Thy constant care did safely guard

My tender infant days;
Thou took'st me from my mother's womb

To sing Thy constant praise. Reject not then Thy servant, Lord,

When I with age decay, Forsake me not when, worn with years, My vigour fades away.


II.-(16. 19, 20. 24.) N. V. WH THILE God vouchsafes me His support,

I'll in His strength go on;
All other righteousness disclaim,

And mention His alone.
How high Thy justice soars, O God!

How great and wondrous are
The mighty works which Thou hast done!

Who may with Thee compare ?
Me, whom Thy hand has sorely press'd,

Thy grace shall yet relieve,
And from the lowest depths of woe

With tender care retrieve.
Then joy shall fill my mouth, and songs

Employ my cheerful voice ;
My grateful soul, by Thee redeemd,

Shall in Thy strength rejoice.

(8. 10, 11. 17.)

N. V. THY uncontroll’d dominion shall

To Thee shall ev'ry king on earth
From sea to sea extend,

His humble homage pay,
Begin at proud Euphrates' streams,

And difføring nations gladly join
At nature's limits end.

To own Thy righteous sway.
The kings of Tarshish and the isles

The mem'ry of Thy glorious Name
Shall costly presents bring;

Through endless years shall run ; From spicy Sheba gifts shall come,

Thy spotless fame shall shine as bright And wealthy Seba's king.

And lasting as the sun.


Scotch Psalter. 1611.

1.—(14, 15. 17, 18.)
LORD of hosts, return again,

From heaven do Thou look down ;
Behold, and with Thy help sustain

Thy vineyard overthrown.
Thy pleasant vine, Thy Israel,

Which Thy right hand hath set;
The same which Thou didst love so well,

O Lord, do not forget.
Let Thy right hand be with him now,

Whom Thou hast kept so long;
And with the Son of man, whom Thou

To Thee hast made so strong.
And so, when Thou hast set us free,

And saved us from shame;
Then will we never fall from Thee,

But call upon Thy Name.
