6 But thy compassions, Lord,
To endless years endure;
Thy words of promise sure.
115. S. M. Warts.
Praising God for Mercies. Ps. 103. 1 O BLESS the Lord, my soul !
Let all within me join,
Whose favors are divine.
Nor let his mercies lie Forgotten in unthankfulness,
And without praises die. 3 'Tis he forgives thy sins,
'Tis he relieves thy pain, Tis he that heals thy sicknesses,
And makes thee young again. 4 He crowns thy life with love,
When ransomed from the grave: He that redeemed my soul from death,
Hath sovereign power to save. 5 He fills the poor with good;
He gives the sufferers rest: The Lord hath judgments for the proud,
And justice for the oppressed. 6 His wondrous works and ways
He made by Moses known; But sent the world his truth and grace
By his beloved Son.
116. S. M. MONTGOMERY.
Bless the Lord for his Mercies. Ps. 103. 1 O BLESS the Lord, my soul !
His grace to thee proclaim; And all that is within me join
To bless his holy name. 2 O bless the Lord, my soul;
His mercies bear in mind; Forget not all his benefits:
The Lord to thee is kind.
3 He will not always chide;
He will with patience wait; His wrath is ever slow to rise,
And ready to abate.
4 He pardons all thy sins,
Prolongs thy feeble breath; He healeth thine infirmities,
And ransoms thep from death.
5 He clothes thee with his love,
Upholds thee with his truth, And, like the eagle, he renews
The vigor of thy youth. 6 Then bless his holy name
Whose grace hath made thee who e; Whose loving kindness crowns thy days;
O bless the Lord, my soul !

Mercy of God. Ps. 103.
God's holy name forever bless;
And still thy grateful thanks express. 2 The Lord abounds with tender love,
And unexampled acts of grace:
His willing mercy flows apace.
But with his anger quickly part;
More by his love than our desert.
Above this little spot of clay;
The small respects that we can pay. 5 As far as 't is from east to west,
So far has he our sins removed,

WATTS. Praise for Protection, Grace and Truth. Ps. 57. 1 My God, in whom are all the springs
Of boundless love and grace unknown; Hide me beneath thy spreading wings, Till the dark cloud is overblown.
2 Up to the heavens I send my cry ;
The Lord will my desires perform;
And saves me from the threatening storm. 3 Be thou exalted, O my God,
Above the heavens, where angels dwell;
And land to land thy wonders tell.
Immortal honors to thy name;
My tongue, the glory of my frame.
And reaches to the utmost sky;
When lower worlds dissolve and die. 6 Be thou exalted, O my God,
Above the heavens, where angels dwell; Thy power on earth be known abroad, And land to land thy wonders tell.
119. S. M. MRS. STEELE.
God our Benefactor.
To thee my all I owe:
From whence my blessings flow. 2 Thou ever good and kind
A thousand reasons move,
My heart to grateful love.
3 The creature of thy hand,
On thee alone I live:
More praise than tongue can give. 4 O let thy grace inspire
My soul with strength divine; Let all my powers to thee aspire,
And all my days be thine.
120. S. M. TATE & BRADY.
God merciful to Sinners. Ps. 25. 1 Thy mercies, and thy love,
O Lord, recall to mind; And graciously continue still, As thou wert ever,
2 His mercy, and his truth,
The righteous Lord displays, In bringing wandering sinners home
And teaching them his ways. 3 He those in justice guides,
Who his direction seek;
The humble and the meek
4 Through all the ways of God,
Both truth and mercy shine, To such as with religious hearts
To his blessed will incline.
