PSALM 37. Third Part. C.M.
The way and end of the righteous and the wicked. (cont.)

  6 Nor root, nor branch, nor leaf was found,
   Where all that pride had been.
  7 But mark the man of righteousness,
   His sev'ral steps attend:
True pleasure runs thro' all his ways,
   And peaceful is his end.

PSALM 38. C.M.
Prayer for pardon and health.

  1 AMID thy wrath remember love,
   Restore thy servant, Lord;
Nor let a father's chast'ning prove
   Like an avenger's sword.
  2 Thine arrows stick within my heart,
   My flesh is sorely prest:
Between the sorrow and the smart,
   My spirit finds no rest.
  3 My sins a heavy load appear,
   And o'er my head are gone;
Too heavy for my soul to bear,
   Too hard for me t' atone.
  4 My thoughts are like a troubled sea,
   My head still bending down;
And I go mourning all the day,
   Beneath my Father's frown.
  5 Lord, I am weak and broken sore,
   None of my pow'rs are whole:
The inward anguish makes me roar,
   The anguish of my soul.
  6 All my desire to thee is known,
   Thine eye counts ev'ry tear;
And ev'ry sigh, and ev'ry groan,
   Is notic'd by thine ear.
  7 Thou art my God, my only hope,
   My God will hear my cry:

PSALM 38. C.M.
Prayer for pardon and health. (cont.)

  7 My God will bear my spirit up,
   When Satan bids me die.
  8 My foes rejoice to see me slide
   Into the miry pit:
They raise their pleasure and their pride,
   When they supplant my feet.
  9 But I'll confess my guilt to thee,
   And grieve for all my sin:
I feel how weak my graces be,
   And beg support divine.
 10 My God, forgive my follies past,
   And be forever nigh:
O Lord of my salvation haste,
   Before thy servant die.

PSALM 39. First Part. C.M.
Prudence and zeal.

  1 THUS I resolv'd before the Lord:
   "Now will I watch my tongue,
"Lest I let slip one single word;
   "Or do my neighbour wrong."
  2 And, if I'm e'er constrain'd to stay
   With men of lives profane;
I'll set a double guard that day,
   Nor let my talk be vain.
  3 I'll scarce allow my lips to speak
   The pious thoughts I feel;
Lest scoffers should th' occasion take
   To mock my holy zeal.
  4 Yet if some proper hour appear,
   I'll not be overaw'd;
But let the scoffing sinners hear,
   That I can speak for God.
