PSALM 89. Second Part. L.M.
The faithfulness of God. (cont.)

  4 His seed for ever shall possess
   A throne above the skies;
The meanest subject of his grace,
   Shall to that glory rise.
  5 Lord God of hosts, thy wond'rous ways
   Are sung by saints above;
And saints on earth their honours raise
   To thy unchanging love.

PSALM 89. Third Part. C.M.
The power and majesty of God.

  1 WITH rev'rence let thy saints appear,
   And bow before the Lord;
His high commands adoring hear,
   And tremble at his word.
HL Note
  2 How terrible thy glories be!
   How bright thine armies shine!
Where is the pow'r that vies with thee?
   Or truth compar'd with thine?
  3 The northern pole and southern rest
   On thy supporting hand;
Darkness and day from east to west
   Move round at thy command.
  4 Thy words the raging winds control,
   And rule the boist'rous deep:
Thou mak'st the sleeping billows roll,
   The rolling billows sleep.
HL Note
  5 Heav'n, earth, and air, and sea are thine,
   And the dark world of hell;
How did thine arm in vengeance shine
   When Egypt durst rebel!
  6 Justice and judgment are thy throne,
   Yet wond'rous is thy grace;
While truth and mercy, join'd in one,
   Invite us near thy face.

PSALM 89. Fourth Part. C.M.
A blessed Gospel.

  1 BLEST are the souls that hear and know
   The gospel's joyful sound;
Peace shall attend the path they go,
   And light their steps surround.
  2 Their joy shall bear their spirits up
   Thro' their Redeemer's name;
His righteousness exalts their hope,
   Nor Satan dares condemn.
  3 The Lord, our glory and defence,
   Strength and salvation gives;
Israel, thy King for ever reigns,
   Thy God for ever lives.

PSALM 89. Fifth Part. C.M.
Christ's mediatorial Kingdom.

  1 HEAR what the Lord in vision said,
   And made his mercy known;
"Sinners, behold, your help is laid
   "On my almighty Son."
  2 High shall he reign on David's throne,
   My people's better King;
My arm shall beat his rivals down,
   And still new subjects bring.
  3 My truth shall guard him in his way,
   With mercy by his side;
While in my name thro' earth and sea
   He shall in triumph ride.
  4 My cov'nant stands for ever fast,
   My promises are strong;
Firm as the heav'ns his throne shall last,
   His seed endure as long.
