SELECTION 50.

O COME, let us sing unto the Lord : let us make a joyful noise to the Rock of our salvation.

Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and sing joyfully unto him with psalms.

For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods.

In his hand are the deep places of the earth : the strength of the hills is his also.

The sea is his, and he made it; and his hands formed the dry land.

O come, let us worship and bow down : let us kneel before the Lord our maker.

For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.

SELECTION 51.

O SING unto the Lord a new song : sing unto the Lord, all the earth.

Sing unto the Lord, bless his name ; shew forth his salvation from day to day.

Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people.

For the Lord is great, and greatly to be praised; he is to be feared above all gods.

For all the gods of the nations are idols; but the Lord made the heavens.

Honor and majesty are before him ; strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.

Give unto the Lord, O ye kindreds of the people, give unto the Lord glory and strength.

Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come into his courts.

O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness : fear before him, all the earth.

Say among the heathen that the Lord reigneth : the world therefore stands firm, it shall not be moved; he shall judge the people righteously.

Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad ; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.

Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein ; then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice before the Lord;

For he cometh to judge the earth : he will judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.

Now unto the King eternal, immortal, and invisible, the only wise God, Be honor and glory, through Jesus Christ, forever and

AMEN.

ever.

SELECTION 52.

The Lord reigneth ; let the earth rejoice ; let the multitude of isles be glad.

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

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

The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.

Ye that love the Lord, hate evil : he preserveth the souls

of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.

Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous ; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

SELECTION 53.

O SING unto the Lord a new song ; for he hath done marvellous things.

The Lord hath made known his salvation : his goodness hath he manifested in the sight of the nations.

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

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth : break forth into joy, and sing.

Sing unto the Lord with the voice of a psalm. Make a joyful noise before the Lord, the King.

Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof: the world, and they that dwell therein.

Let the floods clap their hands : let the hills be joyful together before the Lord ;

For he cometh to judge the earth : with righteousness will he judge the world, and the people with equity.

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.

Serve the Lord with gladness : come before his presence with singing.

Know ye 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.

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise : be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

For the Lord is good ; his mercy is everlasting ; and his truth endureth to all generations.

SELECTION 54.

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

Hide not thy face from me in the day of my trouble : incline thine ear unto me: in the day when I call, answer me speedily.

My days are like a passing shadow: and I am withered like

grass. But thou, O Lord, shalt endure forever; and thy remembrance unto all generations.

Thou wilt regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.

This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the Lord.

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

To hear the groaning of the prisoner : to release those that are appointed to death ;

To declare the name of the Lord in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem;

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

I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of my days: thy years are throughout all generations.

Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth : and the heavens are the work of thy hands.

They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them

shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed :

But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.

Now unto the King eternal, immortal, and invisible, the only wise God, Be honor and glory, through Jesus Christ, forever and

AMEN.

ever.

SELECTION 55.

Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits :

Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

Who redeemeth thy life from destruction ; who crowneth thee with loving-kindness, and tender mercies ;

Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things ; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.

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

He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel. The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger,

and plenteous in mercy.

He will not always chide ; neither will he keep his anger forever.

He hath not dealt with us after our sins: nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.

As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
