PSALM 18. Second Part. L.M.
Christian Sincerity. (cont.)

  6 And men that love revenge shall know,
God hath an arm of vengeance too.

PSALM 18. Third Part. L.M.
Rejoicing in God our Saviour.

  1 JUST are thy ways, and true thy word,
Great Rock of my secure abode:
Who is a God beside the Lord?
Or whereas a refuge like our God?
  2 'Tis he that girds me with his might,
Gives me his holy sword to wield;
And while with sin and hell I fight,
Spreads his salvation for my shield.
  3 He lives, (and blessed be my Rock)
The God of my salvation lives;
The dark designs of hell he broke:
Sweet is the peace my Saviour gives.
  4 Before the scoffers of the age
I will exalt my Saviour's name
Nor tremble at their mighty rage;
But meet reproach, and bear the shame.

PSALM 18. Fourth Part. C.M.
Victory over temporal enemies.

  1 We love thee, Lord, and we adore;
   Now is thine arm reveal 'd:
Thou art our strength, our heav'nly tow'r;
   Our bulwark and our shield.
  2 We fly to our eternal rock,
   And find a sure defence:
His holy name our lips invoke,
   And draw salvation thence.
  3 When God our leader shines in arms,
   What mortal heart can bear
The thunder of his loud alarms?
   The lightning of his spear?

PSALM 18. Fourth Part. C.M.
Victory over temporal enemies. (cont.)

  4 He rides upon the winged wind;
   And angels in array,
In millions, wait to know his mind,
   And swift as flames obey.
  5 He speaks, and at his fierce rebuke
   Whole armies are dismay'd;
His voice, his frown, his angry look
   Strikes all their courage dead.
  6 He forms our gen'rals for the field,
   With all their dreadful skill;
Gives them his awful sword to wield,
   And makes their hearts of steel.
  7 He arms our captains to the fight,
   (Tho' there his name's forgot)
He girded Cyrus with his might,
   When Cyrus knew him not.
  8 Oft has the Lord whole nations blest
   For his own children's sake:
The pow'rs, that give his people rest.
   Shall of his care partake.

PSALM 18. Fifth Part. C.M.
The Conqueror's Song.

  1 O thine almighty arm we owe
   The triumphs of the day;
Thy terrors, Lord, confound the foe,
   And melt his strength away.
  2 'Tis by thine aid our troops prevail,
   And break united powers:
Or burn their boasted fleets, or scale
   The proudest of their tow'rs.
  3 How have we chas'd them thro' the field,
   And trod them to the ground;
While thy salvation was our shield,
   And they no shelter found!
