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

  2 I've seen thy glory and thy pow'r,
   Thro' all thy temples shine:
My God, repeat that heav'nly hour,
   That vision so divine.
  3 Not life itself, with all its joys,
   Can my best passions move;
Or raise so high my cheerful voice,
   As thy forgiving love.
  4 Thus till my last expiring day
   I'll bless my God and king;
Thus will I lift my hands to pray,
   And tune my lips to sing.

PSALM 63. Second Part. L.M.
The love of God better than life.

  1 GREAT God, indulge my humble claim,
Thou art my hope, my joy, my rest;
The glories, that compose thy name,
Stand all engag'd to make me blest.
  2 Thou Great and Good, thou Just and Wise,
Thou art my Father and my God;
And I am thine by sacred ties,
Thy son, thy servant, bought with blood.
  3 With early feet I love t' appear
Among thy saints, and seek thy face;
Oft have I seen thy glory there,
And felt the pow'r of sov'reign grace.
  4 Not fruits nor wines that tempt our taste,
Nor all the joys our senses know,
Could make me so divinely blest,
Or raise my cheerful passions so.
  5 My life itself, without thy love,
No taste of pleasure could afford;
'Twould but a tiresome burden prove,
If I were banish'd from the Lord.

PSALM 63. Second Part. L.M.
The love of God better than life. (cont.)

  6 Amidst the wakeful hours of night,
When busy cares afflict my head;
One thought of thee gives new delight,
And adds refreshment to my bed.
  7 I'll lift my hands, I'll raise my voice,
While I have breath to pray, or praise;
This work shall make my heart rejoice,
And bless the remnant of my days.

PSALM 63. Third Part. S.M.
Seeking God.

  1 MY God, permit my tongue
   This joy, to call thee mine;
And let my early cries prevail
   To taste thy love divine.
  2 My thirsty fainting soul
   Thy mercy does implore;
Not travellers in desert lands
   Can pant for water more.
  3 Within thy churches, Lord,
   I long to find my place;
Thy pow'r and glory to behold,
   And feel thy quick'ning grace.
  4 Since thou hast been my help,
   To thee my spirit flies;
And on thy watchful providence,
   My cheerful hope relies.
  5 The shadow of thy wings
   My soul in safety keeps;
I follow where my Father leads,
   And he supports my steps.

PSALM 64. L.M.
Hope in God for deliverance from enemies.

  1 GREAT God attend to my complaint,
Nor let my drooping spirit faint:
