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

  4 When men of mischief are destroy'd,
   The snare must be their own.
  5 The wicked shall sink down to hell;
   Thy wrath devour the lands
That dare forget thee, or rebel
   Against thy known commands.
  6 Tho' saints to sore distress are brought,
   And wait and long complain;
Their cries shall never be forgot,
   Nor shall their hopes be vain.

PSALM 10. First Part. C.M.
For a day of Humiliation.

  1 WHY doth the Lord stand off so far?
   And why conceal his face,
When great calamities appear,
   And times of deep distress?
  2 Lord, shall the wicked still deride
   Thy justice and thy power?
Shall they advance their heads in pride
   And still thy saints devour?
  3 They put their judgments from their sight.
   And then insult the poor;
They boast in their exalted height.
   That they shall fall no more.
  4 Arise, O God, lift up thy hand;
   Attend our humble cry:
No enemy shall dare to stand
   When God ascends on high.

PSALM 10. Second Part. C.M.
God will hear the prayers of his children.

  1 WHY do the men of malice rage.
   And say, with foolish pride.
The God of heav'n will ne'er engage
   "To fight on Zion's side."

PSALM 10. Second Part. C.M.
God will hear the prayers of his children. (cont.)

  2 But thou for ever art our Lord
   And pow'rful is thy hand;
As when the heathens felt thy sword,
   And perish'd from thy land.
  3 God will prepare our hearts to pray,
   And bow his ear to hear;
He marks whate'er his children say,
   And puts the world in fear.
  4 Proud tyrants shall no more oppress,
   No more despise the just;
And mighty sinners shall confess
   They are but earth and dust.

PSALM 11. L.M.
God loves the righteous and abhors the wicked.

  1 MY refuge is the God of love:
   Why do my foes insult and cry?
"Fly like a timorous trembling dove,
   "To distant woods or mountains fly."
  2 If government be all destroy'd,
(That firm foundation of our peace)
And violence make justice void.
Where shall the righteous seek redress?
  3 The Lord in heav'n hath fix'd his throne
His eye surveys the world below;
To him all mortal things are known,
His eye-lids search our spirits through.
  4 If he afflicts his saints so far.
To prove their love, and try their grace;
What must the bold transgressors fear?
His very soul abhors their ways.
  5 On impious wretches he shall rain
Tempests of brimstone, fire and death;
Such as he kindled on the plain
Of Sodom, with his angry breath.
