SUNDAY-SCHOOL SERVICES.

The grass withereth, and the flower thereof fadeth away:

But the word of the Lord endureth for

ever.

Heaven and earth shall pass away : But my word shall not pass away.

17. PSALM 121.

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills,
From whence cometh my help.
My help cometh from the Lord,
Which made heaven and earth.

He will not suffer thy foot to be moved :
He that keepeth thee will not slumber.
Behold, He that keepeth Israel
Shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is thy keeper:

The Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.

The sun shall not smite thee by day, Nor the moon by night.

The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil :

He shall preserve thy soul.

The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in,

From this time forth, and even for ever

more.

18. PSALM 122.

I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord. Our feet shall stand within Thy gates, O Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is built as a city that is compact together:

Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord,

Unto the testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the Lord.

For there are set thrones of judgment,
The thrones of the house of David.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem :
They shall prosper that love thee.
Peace be within thy walls,

And prosperity within thy palaces. For my brethren and companions' sakes,

I will now say, Peace be within thee. Because of the house of the Lord our God,

I will seek thy good.

19. PSALM 132.

Arise, O Lord, into Thy rest: Thou, and the ark of Thy strength.

Let Thy priests be clothed with righteousness: and let Thy saints shout for joy.

For Thy servant David's sake; turn not away the face of Thine anointed.

The Lord hath sworn in truth unto David: He shall not turn from it.

Of the fruit of thy body, will I set upon thy throne.

If thy children will keep My covenant, and My testimony that I will teach them : their children also shall sit upon thy throne for evermore.

For the Lord hath chosen Zion: He hath desired it for His habitation.

This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell, for I have desired it.

I will abundantly bless her provision; I will satisfy her poor with bread.

I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy.
