SELECTION 45.

Give ear,

Bow down thine ear, O Lord, and hear me: for I am poor and needy.

Preserve my soul; for thou art my hope : 0 thou my God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee.

Be merciful unto me, O Lord : for I cry unto thee daily.

Rejoice the soul of thy servant : for unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.

For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.

O Lord, unto my prayer; and attend to the voice of my supplications.

In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me.

Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord; neither are there any works like unto thy works.

All nations whom thou hast made, shall come and worship before thee, O Lord ; and shall glorify thy name.

For thou art great, and doest wondrous things : thou art God alone.

Teach me thy way, O Lord; I will walk in thy truth : unite my heart to fear thy name.

I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart : and I will glorify thy name for evermore.

For great is thy mercy toward me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the grave.

But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, long-suffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.

.

O turn unto me, and have mercy upon me; give strength unto thy servant.

SELECTION 46.

I will sing of the loving-kindness of the Lord forever : with my mouth will I make known thy truth to all generations.

For I believe that thy mercy endureth forever: thy truth shalt thou establish like the very heavens.

And the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O Lord : thy faithfulness also in the congregation of the just.

For who in the heaven can be compared unto the Lord ? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the Lord ?

God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him.

O Lord God of hosts, who is a strong Lord like unto thee? and thy faithfulness is round about thee.

Thou rulest the raging of the sea: when the waves thereof arise, thou stillest them.

The heavens are thine, the earth also is thine; as for the world, and the fulness thereof, thou hast founded them.

The north and the south thou hast created them. Tabor and Hermon shall rejoice in thy name.

Thou hast a mighty arm: strong is thy hand, and high is thy right hand.

Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne ; mercy and truth shall go before thy face.

Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound : they shall walk, O Lord, in the light of thy countenance.

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

Be honor and glory, through Jesus Christ, forever and

AMEN.

ever.

SELECTION 47.

LORD, thou hast been our dwelling-place in all generations.

Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.

A thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.

Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a dream : they are like grass which groweth up in the morning.

In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut down, and withereth.

Thou hast set our iniquities before thee; our secret sing in the light of thy countenance.

The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if, by reason of strength, they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labor and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away:

Yet who considereth the power of thine anger; who, with due reverence, regardeth thine indignation.

So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.

Let thy work appear unto thy servants, and thy glory unto their children.

Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us; and establish thou the work of our hands; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.

SELECTION 48.

He that dwelleth under the protection of the Most High, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in him will I trust.

Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but no harm shall come nigh thee.

Because thou hast made the Lord thy refuge, and the Most High thy shelter,

There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

He shall call upon me, and I will answer him. I will be with him in trouble ; I will deliver him, and honor him.

With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

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

AMEN.

ever.

SELECTION 49.

It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O Most High.

To shew forth thy loving-kindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night.

For thou, Lord, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.

O Lord, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep.

The righteous shall flourish like the palm-tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

Those that be planted in the house of the Lord, in the courts of our God, shall flourish.

To shew that the Lord is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.

The Lord reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the Lord is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: therefore the earth standeth firm and cannot be moved.

Thy throne is established of old; thou art from everlasting.

The floods have lifted up their voice, O Lord; the floods lift up their waves.

The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.

Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thy house, O Lord, forever.

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

AMEN.

ever.
