When Aaron was his priest,

Nor would destroy their race;
When they abus'd his grace.

And jealous for his name.
Praise to our Creator.
: Know that the Lord is God alone;
He can create, and he destroy.
Made us of clay, and form'd us men;
He brought us to his fold again. 3 We are his people, we his care ;
Our souls and all our mortal frame :
Almighty Maker, to thy name? 4 We'll croud thy gates with thankful songs
High as the heav'n our voices raise :
Shall fill thy courts with sounding praise. 5 Wide as the world is thy command,
Vast as eternity thy love :

A general song of praise.
With grateful voice make known
His goodness and his pow'r.
With fear address the Lord :
And quicken'd by his word.
And ev'ry blessing give :
And in his pastures live.

His truth and mercy sure;
His promises endure.
The magistrate's psalm. 1 MERCY
SERCY and judgment are my song:
And since they both to thee belong:My gracious God, my righteous King,
To thee my songs and vows I'll bring. 2 If I am rais'd to bear the sword, I'll take my counsels from thy word:
Thy justice and thy heav'nly grace
Shall be the pattern of my ways. 3 Let wisdom all
actions guide, And let my God with me reside :
:: No wicked thing shall dwell with me,
Which may provoke thy jealousy.
To posts of honour, wealth and trust :
Shall be my friends and fav’rites still. 5 In vain shall sinners hope to rise
By flatt'ring or malicious lies;
The bold offender shan't be spar'd.
Shall hide their heads, or quit the land ;
A psalm for a master of a family. 1 OF justice
and of grace I sing,
pay my God my vows: Thy grace and justice, heav'nly king, Teach me to rule
house. 2 Now to my tent, O God, repair,
And make thy servant wise :
That shall offend thine eyes.
By falsehood or by force;
I'll thrust them from my doors. 4. I'll seek the faithful and the just,
And will their help enjoy ;
These are the friends that I shall trust,
The servants I'll employ.
I'll not endure a night:
And banish from my sight. 6 I'll purge my family around,
And make the wicked flee;
A prayer for the afflicted. 1 EAR
me, O ,
To hear when sinners cry?
Dissolving in the air ;
And sinking in despair.
Burnt with excessive heat :
And I forget to eat.
The sparrow tells her moan;
I sit and grieve alone.
Where beasts of midnight howl ;
And there the screaming owl, 6 Dark dismal thoughts and boding fears
Dwell in my troubled breast;
While sharp reproaches wound my ears,
Nor give my spirit rest.
And tears are my repast ;
Unpleasant to my taste. 8 Sense can afford no real joy
To souls that feel thy frown;
Thy hand hath cast me down.
And life's declining light
That vanish into night.
O my eternal God !
And spread thy works abroad.
Nor will my Lord delay
That long expected day. 12 He, hears his saints, he knows their cry;
And by mysterious ways
And fills their tongues with praise.
Prayer heard, and the church revived. 1 LET. Zion and her sons
rejoice : Behold Her God hath heard her mourning voice,
And comes t exalt his pow'r. 2 Her dust and ruins, that remain,
Are precious in our eyes ;
