PSALM 6. First Part. C.M.
Complaint in Sickness. (cont.)

  6 For silent graves praise not the Lord;
   Our lips are sealed in death.

God's care of his people, and punishment of persecutors.

  1 My trust is in my heavenly friend,
   My hope in thee, my God;
Rise, and my helpless life defend
   From those that seek my blood.
  2 With insolence and fury they
   My soul in pieces tear;
As hungry lions rend the prey,
   When no deliv'rer's near.
  3 If I indulge in thoughts unjust,
   And wish and seek their woe.
Then let them tread my life to dust,
   And lay mine honour low.
  4 If there were malice hid in me,
   I know thy piercing eyes;
I should not dare appeal to thee,
   Nor ask my God to rise.
  5 Arise, my God, lift up thy hand,
   Their pride and power control;
Awake to judgment, and command
   Deliv'rance for my soul.
  6 Let sinners and their wicked rage
   Be humbled to the dust;
Shall not the God of truth engage
   To vindicate the just?
  7 He knows the heart, he tries the reins,
   He will defend th' upright;
His sharpest arrows he ordains
   Against the sons of spite
  8 For me their malice dug a pit.
   But there themselves are cast:

God's care of his people, and punishment of persecutors. (cont.)

  8 My God makes all their mischief light
   On their own heads at last.
  9 That cruel persecuting race
   Must feel his dreadful sword;
Awake, my soul, and praise the grace,
   And justice of the Lord.

PSALM 8. First Part. S.M.
The sovereignty and goodness of God.

  1 O LORD, our heavenly King,
   Thy name is all divine,
Thy glories round the earth are spread,
   And o'er the heavens they shine.
  2 When to thy works on high
   I raise my wond'ring eyes,
And see the moon, complete in light,
   Adorn the darksome skies:
  3 When I survey the stars
   And all their shining forms,
Lord, what is man! that worthless thing,
   A-kin to dust and worms!
  4 Lord, what is worthless man,
   That thou should'st love him so!
Next to thine angels is he plac'd,
   And lord of all below.
  5 How rich thy bounties are!
   How wond'rous are thy ways!
Of dust and worms, thy power can frame
   A monument of praise.

PSALM 8. Second Part. L.M.
Adam and Christ.

  1 LORD, what was man, when made at first,
   Adam, the offspring of the dust,
That thou should'st set him and his race,
   But just below an angel's place!
