PSALM 46. Second Part. L.M.
God creates peace. (cont.)

  5 "Be still, and learn that I am God,
"I'll be exalted o'er the lands;
"I will be known and fear'd abroad,
"But still my throne in Zion stands."
  6 O Lord of hosts, Almighty King;
While we so near thy presence dwell,
Our faith shall sit secure, and sing
Defiance to the gates of hell.

PSALM 47. C.M.
Christ ascending and reigning

  1 O FOR a shout of sacred joy,
   To God the sov'reign King!
Let ev'ry land their tongues employ,
   And hymns of triumph sing.
  2 Jesus, our God, ascends on high;
   His heav'nly guards around
Attend him rising thro' the sky,
   With trumpet's joyful sound.
  3 While angels shout and praise their King,
   Let mortals learn their strains:
Let all the earth his honours sing;
   O'er all the earth he reigns.
  4 Rehearse his praise with awe profound,
   Let knowledge lead the song;
Nor mock him with a solemn sound
   Upon a thoughtless tongue.
  5 In Israel stood his ancient throne,
   He lov'd that chosen race;
But now he calls the world his own,
   And heathens taste his grace.
  6 These western climes are all the Lord's,
   Here Abraham's God is known;
While pow'rs and princes, shields and swords
   Submit before his throne.

PSALM 48. First Part. S.M.
The Church is the honour and safety of a nation.

  1 GREAT is the Lord our God,
   And let his praise be great;
He makes his churches his abode,
   His most delightful seat.
  2 These temples of his grace,
   How beautiful they stand!
The honour of our native place,
   And bulwarks of our land.
  3 In Zion God is known,
   A refuge in distress:
How bright hath his salvation shone
   Thro' all her palaces!
  4 When Kings against her join'd,
   And saw the Lord was there;
In wild confusion of the mind
   They fled with hasty fear.
  5 When navies tall and proud
   Attempt to spoil our peace,
He sends his tempests roaring loud,
   And sinks them in the seas.
  6 Oft have our fathers told;
   Our eyes have often seen;
How well our God secures the fold,
   Where his own sheep have been.
  7 In ev'ry new distress,
   We'll to his house repair:
We'll think upon his wond'rous grace,
   And seek deliv'rance there.

PSALM 48. Second Part. S.M.
The worship and order of the Church.

  1 FAR as thy name is known,
   The world declares thy praise:
