PSALM 31. Third Part L.M.
Prayer for deliverance from unfaithful friends.

  1 HOW many Ebenezers stand,
To mark the mercies of thy hand!
How many pray'rs have reach'd thy throne!
How often has thy grace been shown!
  2 When sorrows rise and pains prevail,
Or angry foes my peace assail;
When dangers thicken all around;
In thee alone my help is found.
  3 Thro' all the road, each day, each hour,
Fresh evils threaten to devour:
Some new complaint, some painful case,
Still drives me to the throne of grace.
  4 My former friends their friend forget,
And change their love to cruel hate;
But truth and love with thee remain;
My Saviour always is the same.
  5 Support me in this sharp distress,
While all forsake, and some oppress;
And if my ways the Lord approve,
Then turn their hatred into love.

PSALM 32. First Part. L.M.
Justification and sanctification.

  1 BLEST is the man, for ever blest,
   Whose guilt is pardon'd by his God;
Whose sins with sorrow are confess'd,
   And cover'd with his Saviour's blood.
  2 Blest is the man to whom the Lord,
   Imputes not his iniquities:
He pleads no merit of reward,
   And, not on works, but grace, relies.
  3 From guile his heart and lips are free;
   His humble joy, his holy fear,

PSALM 32. First Part. S.M.
Waiting for pardon and direction. (cont.)

  3 With deep repentance well agree;
   And join to prove his faith sincere.
  4 How glorious is that righteousness,
   That hides and cancels all his sins!
While a bright evidence of grace,
   Thro' his whole life, appears and shines.

PSALM 32. Second Part. L.M.
Confession and pardon.

  1 WHILE I keep silence and conceal
My heavy guilt within my heart,
What torments doth my conscience feel!
What agonies of inward smart!
  2 I spread my sins before the Lord,
And all my secret faults confess:
Thy gospel speaks a pard'ning word,
Thy holy spirit seals the grace.
  3 For this shall ev'ry humble soul
Make swift addresses to thy seat:
When floods of huge temptations roll,
There shall they find a blest retreat.
  4 How safe beneath thy wings I lie,
When days grow dark, and storms appear:
And when I walk, thy watchful eye
Shall guide me safe from ev'ry snare.

PSALM 33. First Part. C.M.
Works of creation and providence.

  1 REJOICE, ye righteous, in the Lord;
   This work belongs to you:
Sing of his name, his ways, his word,
   How holy, just and true!
  2 His mercy and his righteousness
   Let heav'n and earth proclaim:
