PSALMN 61. First Part. S.M.
Safety in God.

  1 WHEN overwhelm'd with grief,
   My heart within me dies;
Helpless and far from all relief,
   To heav'n I lift mine eyes.
  2 O lead me to the rock,
   That's high above my head;
And make the covert of thy wings,
   My shelter and my shade.
  3 Within thy presence, Lord,
   For ever I'll abide:
Thou art the tow'r of my defence,
   The refuge where I hide.
  4 Thou givest me the lot
   Of those that fear thy name:
If endless life be their reward,
   I shall possess the same.

PSALM 61. Second Part. L.M.
Safety in God.

  1 MY soul of thy protection sure,
Against her foes shall rest secure;
For thou, O God, hast heard my vows,
And brought me joyful to thy house.
  2 With all thy saints I'll strive to sing
The glories of my heav'nly king;
Whom thou in mercy didst ordain,
Should o'er thy chosen people reign.
  3 Jesus shall live for ever blest,
And give his people peace and rest:
His years shall last, and God will own
His righteous sceptre, and his throne.
  4 O let thy truth prepare the way,
In mercy, Lord, extend his sway:

PSALM 61. Second Part. L.M.
Safety in God. (cont.)

  4 Thus we'll devote our future days,
To pay our vows and sing thy praise.

PSALM 62. L.M.
Faith in the grace and power of the Redeemer.

  1 MY spirit looks to God alone;
My rock and refuge is his throne;
In all my fears, in all my straits,
My soul on his salvation waits.
  2 Trust him, ye saints, in all your ways,
Pour out your hearts before his face:
When helpers fail, and foes invade,
God is our all-sufficient aid.
  3 False are the men of high degree,
The baser sort are vanity;
Laid in the balance, both appear
Light as a puff of empty air.
  4 Make not increasing gold your trust,
Nor set your hearts on glitt'ring dust;
Why will ye grasp the fleeting smoke,
And not believe what God has spoke?
  5 Once hath his awful voice declar'd,
Once and again my ears have heard,
"All pow'r is his eternal due;
"He must be fear'd and trusted too."
  6 For sovereign pow'r reigns not alone,
Grace is a partner of the throne:
Thy grace and justice, mighty Lord,
Shall well divide our last reward.

PSALM 63. First Part. C.M.
The morning of a Lord's day.

  1 EARLY, my God, without delay,
   I haste to seek thy face;
My thirsty spirit faints away,
   Without thy cheering grace.
