SELECTION 29.

GREAT is the Lord, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness.

Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, the city of the great King.

God reigneth over the nations: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness.

As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the Lord of hosts, in the city of our God: God will establish it forever.

We remember thy loving-kindness, O God, in the midst of thy temple.

As thy name, O God, so sounds thy praise unto the ends of the earth thy right hand is full of righteousness.

For God is our God forever and ever: he will be our guide unto death.

Hear this, all ye people; give ear all ye inhabitants of the world:

Both low and high, rich and poor, together.

My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding.

Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity of my foes compasses me about?

Though they trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;

None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him :

That he should still live forever, and not see corruption. But though they see that wise men die, likewise the fool and the ignorant perish, and leave their wealth to others;

Yet their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue forever, and their dwelling-places to all generations ; and that their names shall be famous in the earth.

But God will redeem my soul from the world below; he will receive me to himself.

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

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

Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.

For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.

Against thee, thee only have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: so that thou art just in thy sentence, and upright in thy judgment.

Behold! thou desirest truth in the heart; teach me therefore wisdom in my inmost soul.

Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.

Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy Holy Spirit from me.

Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.

O Lord, open thou my lips, and my mouth shall show forth thy praise.

For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it; thou delightest not in burnt-offering.

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

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

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

As for me, I will call upon God, and the Lord shall save

Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud; and he shall hear my voice.

When I am in fear, I will put my trust in thee.

In the promise of God I glory; in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what man can do unto me.

Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; let thy glory be above all the earth.

My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise.

I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people; I will sing unto thee among the nations.

For thy mercy reacheth to the heavens, and thy truth unto the clouds.

Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; let thy glory be above all the earth.

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

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

SELECTION 33.

HEAR my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.

From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.

I will abide in thy tabernacle forever; 1 will trust in the covert of thy wings.

For thou, O God, hast heard my vows; thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name.

God hath spoken once;

power belongeth unto God.

twice have I heard this; that

Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy; for thou renderest to every man according to his work.
