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

  4 If thou withhold thy heav'nly light,
I sleep in everlasting night.
  5 How would the pow'rs of darkness boast,
Could but one praying soul be lost?
But I have trusted in thy grace,
And shall again behold thy face.
  6 Whate'er my fears or foes suggest,
Thou art my hope, my joy, my rest:
My heart shall feel thy love, and raise
My cheerful voice to songs of praise.

PSALM 14. First Part. C.M.
By nature all men are sinners.

  1 FOOLS in their hearts believe and say,
   "That all religion's vain;
"There is no God that reigns on high,
   "Or minds th' affairs of men."
  2 From thoughts so dreadful and profane
   Corrupt discourse proceeds;
And in their impious hands are found
   Abominable deeds.
  3 The Lord, from his celestial throne,
   Look'd down on things below.
To find the man that sought his grace,
   Or did his justice know.
  4 By nature all are gone astray.
   Their practice all the same;
There's none that fears his Maker's hand.
   There's none that loves his name.
  5 Their tongues are us'd to speak deceit.
   Their slanders never cease;
How swift to mischief are their feet!
   Nor know the paths of peace.
  6 Such seeds of sin (that bitter root)
   In ev'ry heart are found;

PSALM 14. First Part. C.M.
By nature all men are sinners. (cont.)

  6 Nor can they bear diviner fruit,
   'Till grace refine the ground.

PSALM 14. Second Part. C.M.
The folly of persecutors.
  1 ARE sinners now so senseless grown,
   That they the saints devour?
And never worship at thy throne,
   Nor fear thine awful pow'r?
  2 Great God, appear to their surprise,
   Reveal thy dreadful name;
Let them no more thy wrath despise,
   Nor turn our hope to shame.
  3 Dost thou not dwell among the just?
   And yet our foes deride,
That we should make thy name our trust:
   Great God, confound their pride.
  4 Oh that the joyful day were come
   To finish our distress!
When God shall bring his children home,
   Our songs shall never cease,

PSALM 15. L.M.
The character of a Saint; or the qualifications of a Christian.

  1 WHO shall ascend thy heav'nly place,
Great God, and dwell before thy face?
The man that minds religion now,
And lives and walks by faith below:
  2 Whose hands are pure, whose heart is clean;
Whose lips still speak the thing they mean;
No slanders dwell upon his tongue;
He hates to do his neighbour wrong.
  3 Scarce will he trust an ill report.
Nor vent it to his neighbour's hurt;
