SELECTION 12.

THE Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul; he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me; thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

SELECTION 13.

THE earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.

Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? and who shall stand in his holy place?

He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not inclined his soul unto falsehood, nor sworn deceitfully.

He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

This is the race of them that seek him; that seek thy face, O Jacob.

Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

Who is this King of glory? the Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.

Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

Who is this King of glory? the Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory.

Now unto the King eternal, immortal, and invisible, the only wise God,

Be honor and glory, through Jesus Christ, forever and AMEN.

ever.

SELECTION 14.

UNTO thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.

O my God, I trust in thee; let me not be ashamed. Shew me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths. Lead me in thy truth, and teach me for thou art the God of my salvation; in thee do I trust all the day.

Remember, O Lord, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old.

Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me, for thy goodness' sake, O Lord.

Good and upright is the Lord; therefore will he teach sinners his way.

The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.

All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth, unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.

For thy name's sake, O Lord, pardon mine iniquity, for it is great.

What man is he that feareth the Lord? him shall he teach in the way that he should choose.

Mine eyes are ever toward the Lord; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.

Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me: for I am desolate and afflicted.

Lighten the troubles of my heart; O bring thou me out of my distresses.

Look upon mine affliction, and my pain; and forgive all my sins.

O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee.

Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee.

Now unto the King eternal, immortal, and invisible, the only wise God,

Be honor and glory, through Jesus Christ, forever and ever. AMEN.

SELECTION 15.

JUDGE me, O Lord, for I have walked in mine integrity ; I have trusted also in the Lord, therefore I shall not fall. Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; try my thoughts and my heart.

For thy loving-kindness is before mine eyes; and I have walked in thy truth.

I sit not with men of falsehood, neither do I go with dissemblers.

I hate the assembly of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.

I will wash mine hands in innocency; so will I go to thine altar, O Lord;

That I may publish, with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.

Lord, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honor dwelleth.

As for me, I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and be merciful unto me.

My feet tread in a straight path: in the congregation will I bless the Lord.

SELECTION 16.

THE Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

One thing have I desired of the Lord, that I will seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord continually, to behold the glory of Jehovah, and to enquire in his temple.

For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle will he hide me; he shall set me upon a rock.

Therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord.

Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice; have mercy also upon me, and answer me.

When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee,-Thy face, Lord, will I seek.

Hide not thy face far from me; thou hast been my help: leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.

When my father and mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.

Teach me thy way, O Lord, and lead me in a plain path. I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.

Now unto the King eternal, immortal, and invisible, the only wise God,

Be honor and glory, through Jesus Christ, forever and AMEN.

ever.

SELECTION 17.

UNTO thee will I cry, O Lord my rock; be not silent to me: if thou answer me not, I become like those who go down into the grave.

Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee, when I lift up my hands toward thy holy mercy-seat.

Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity; which speak peace to their neighbors, while mischief is in their hearts.

Blessed be the Lord, because he hath heard the voice of my supplications.

The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusteth in him, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth, and with my song will I praise him.

The Lord is my strength; he is the protection of his anointed.

Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance: feed them also, and lift them up forever.

SELECTION 18.

GIVE unto the Lord, O ye mighty, give unto the Lord glory and strength.

Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name: worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.
