1 HOW perfect is the law of God!
His covenant is sure
The simple and obscure. 2 The Lord's commands are righteous, and
Rejoice the heart likewise,
Give light unto the eyes.
And ever doth endure;
Most righteous are and pure; 4 And more to be desired are
Than much fine gold alway;
Nothing therefore I need;
He setteth me to feed.
2 He shall convert and glad my soul,
And bring my mind in frame,
For His most holy name.
Yea, though I walk in vale of death,
Yet will I fear no ill;
And Thou art with me still.
4 Through all my life Thy favour is
So frankly showed to me,
My dwelling-place shall be.
ERECT your heads, eternal gates,
Unfold to entertain
With His celestial train.
2 Who is this King of Glory? Who?
The Lord, for strength renown'd;
Eternal victor crown'd.
3 Erect your heads, ye gates, unfold,
In state to entertain
With all His shining train.
The Lord of Hosts renown'd;
Who is with glory crown’d.
I lift my heart and voice,
Nor let my foes rejoice. 2 Thy mercies and Thy love,
O Lord, recall to mind ;
As Thou wert ever, kind.
3 Let all my youthful crimes
Be blotted out by Thee;
In mercy think on me. 4 His mercy and His truth
The righteous Lord displays,
And teaching them His ways. 5 He those in justice guides
Who His direction seek ;
The humble and the meek.
PSALM 33. 1 WHATE’ER the mighty Lord decrees
Shall stand for ever sure;
To ages shall endure.
How happy then are they, to whom
The Lord for God is known : Whom He from all the world besides
Has chosen for His own!
3 The riches of Thy mercy, Lord,
Do Thou to us extend ;
On Thee alone depend.
1 THROUGH all the changing scenes of life,
In trouble and in joy,
My heart and tongue employ.
2 Of His deliv’rance I will boast,
Till all that are distrest
And charm their griefs to rest.
3 O magnify the Lord with me,
With me exalt His Name;
He to my rescue came.
4 O make but trial of His love,
Experience will decide,
Who in His truth confide.
5 Fear him, ye saints, and you will then
Have nothing else to fear;
Unfathom’d depths Thy judgments are ; Thy providence the world sustains ;
The whole creation is thy care. 2 Since of Thy goodness all partake,
With what assurance should the just Thy shelt'ring wings their refuge make,
And saints to Thy protection trust. 3 Such guests shall to Thy courts be led,
To banquet on Thy love's repast;
Of joys that shall for ever last. 4 With Thee the springs of life remain;
Thy presence is eternal day :
PSALM 37. 1 THOUGH wicked men grow rich or great, Yet let not their successful state
Thy anger or thy envy raise :
Whose blooming beauty soon decays.
