PSALM 8. Second Part. L.M.
Adam and Christ. (cont.)

  2 That thou should'st raise his nature so,
And make him lord of all below;
Make every beast and bird submit,
And lay the fishes at his feet!
  3 But O, what brighter glories wait
To crown the second Adam's state!
What honours shall thy Son adorn,
Who condescended to be born!
  4 See him below his angels made:
See him in dust among the dead,
To save a ruin'd world from sin:
Yet he shall reign with power divine.
  5 The world to come, redeem'd from all
The mis'ries that attend the fall,
New made and glorious, shall submit
At our exalted Saviour's feet.

PSALM 8. Third Part. L.M.
The Hosannah of the Children.

  1 ALMIGHTY Ruler of the skies,
Thro' the wide earth thy name is spread;
And thine eternal glories rise,
O'er all the heav'ns thy hands have made.
  2 To thee the voices of the young
A monument of honour raise;
And babes with uninstructed tongue
Declare the wonders of thy praise.
  3 Thy pow'r assists their tender age
To bring proud rebels to the ground;
To still the bold blasphemer's rage,
And all their policy confound.

PSALM 9. First Part. C.M.
Wrath and mercy from the judgment-seat.

  1 WITH my whole heart I'll raise my song,
Thy wonders I'll proclaim;

PSALM 9. First Part. C.M.
Wrath and mercy from the judgment-seat. (cont.)

gn=right valign=top>  3
  1 Thou, the great judge of right and wrong,
   Wilt put my foes to shame.
  2 I'll sing thy majesty and grace;
   My God prepares his throne
To judge the world in righteousness,
   And make his vengeance known.
Then shall the Lord a refuge prove
   For all the poor opprest;
To save the people of his love
   And give the weary rest.
  4 The men, that know thy name, will trust
   In thine abundant grace:
And thou wilt ne'er forsake the just,
   Who humbly seek thy face.
  5 Sing praises to the righteous Lord,
   Who dwells on Zion's hill;
Who executes his threat'ning word,
   And doth his grace fulfil.

PSALM 9. Second Part. C.M.
The wisdom and equity of providence.

  1 WHEN the great judge, supreme and just,
   Shall once enquire for blood,
The humble souls, that mourn in dust,
   Shall find a faithful God.
  2 He from the dreadful gates of death
   Doth his own children raise:
In Zion's gates with cheerful breath,
   They sing their Father's praise.
  3 His foes shall fall with heedless feet
   Into the pit they made;
And sinners perish in the net,
   Which their own hands have spread.
  4 Thus by thy judgments, mighty God,
   Are thy deep councils known;
