PSALM 33. First Part. C.M.
Works of creation and providence. (cont.)

  2 His works of nature and of grace
   Reveal his wondrous name.
  3 His wisdom and almighty word
   The heav'nly arches spread;
And by the spirit of the Lord
   Their shining hosts were made.
  4 He bid the liquid waters flow
   To their appointed deep:
The flowing seas their limits know,
   And their own station keep.
  5 Ye tenants of the spacious earth,
   With fear before him stand:
He spake, and nature took its birth,
   And rests on his command.
  6 He scorns the angry nations' rage,
   And breaks their vain designs:
His counsel stands thro' ev'ry age,
   And in full glory shines.

PSALM 33. Second Part. C.M.
Creatures vain, and God all-sufficient.

  1 BLEST is the nation where the Lord
   Hath fix'd his gracious throne;
Where he reveals his heav'nly word,
   And calls their tribes his own.
  2 His eyes, with infinite survey,
   The spacious world behold;
He form'd us all of equal clay,
   And knows our feeble mould.
  3 Kings are not rescu'd by the force
   Of armies from the grave:
Nor speed nor courage of a horse
   Can the bold rider save.
  4 Vain is the strength of beasts or men,
   To hope for safety thence;

PSALM 33. Second Part. C.M.
Creatures vain, and God all-sufficient. (cont.)

  4 But holy souls from God obtain
   A strong and sure defence.
  5 God is their fear, and God their trust,
   When plagues or famine spread:
His watchful eye secures the just
   Among ten thousand dead.
  6 Lord, let our hearts in thee rejoice,
   And bless us from thy throne:
For we have made thy word our choice,
   And trust thy grace alone.

PSALM 34. First Part. C.M.
Praise for eminent deliverance.

  1 THRO' all the changing scenes of life,
   In trouble and in joy,
The praises of my God shall still
   My heart and tongue employ.
HL Note
  2 Come, magnify the Lord with me,
   And high exalt his name:
When in distress on him I call'd,
   He to my rescue came.
  3 The hosts of God encamp around
   The dwellings of the just:
Deliv'rance he affords to all,
   Who on his succour trust.
  4 O! make but trial of his love:
   Experience will decide,
How bless'd they are, and only they,
   Who in his truth confide.
  5 Fear him, ye saints; and you will then
   Have nothing else to fear:
Make you his service your delight;
   He'll make your wants his care.
