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

  1 When foes in secret spread the snare,
Let my salvation be thy care.
  2 Shield me without, and guard within,
From vile temptations and from sin;
May envy, lust, and pride depart,
And heav'nly grace expand my heart.
  3 Thy justice and thy pow'r display,
And scatter far thy foes away;
While list'ning nations learn thy word,
And saints, triumphant, bless the Lord,
  4 Then shall thy Church exalt her voice,
And all that love thy name rejoice:
By faith approach thine awful throne,
And plead the merits of thy Son.

PSALM 65. First Part. C.M.
A prayer hearing God.

  1 PRAISE waits in Zion, Lord, for thee;
   There shall our vows be paid:
Thou hast an ear when sinners pray;
   All flesh shall seek thine aid.
  2 Lord, our iniquities prevail,
   But pard'ning grace is thine;
And thou wilt grant us pow'r and skill
   To conquer ev'ry sin.
  3 Blest are the men whom thou wilt choose
   To bring them near thy face;
Give them a dwelling in thy house,
   To feast upon thy grace.
  4 In answ'ring what thy church requests,
   Thy truth and tenor shine;
And works of dreadful righteousness
   Fulfil thy kind design.
  5 Thus shall the wond'ring nations see
   The Lord is good and just;

PSALM 65. First Part. C.M.
A prayer hearing God. (cont.)

  5 And distant islands fly to thee,
   And make thy name their trust.
  6 They dread thy glitt'ring tokens, Lord,
   When signs in heav'n appear;
But they shall learn thy holy word,
   And love as well as fear.

PSALM 65. Second Part. C.M.
The province of God in air, earth, and sea.

  1 'Tis by thy strength the mountains stand,
   God of eternal pow'r;
The sea grows calm at thy command,
   And tempests cease to roar.
  2 Thy morning light and ev'ning shade
   Successive comforts bring;
Thy plenteous fruits make harvest glad,
   Thy flow'rs adorn the spring.
  3 Seasons and times, and months, and hours,
   Heav'n, earth, and air are thine;
When clouds distil in fruitful show'rs,
   The author is divine.
  4 Those wand'ring cisterns in the sky,
   Borne by the winds around,
With wat'ry treasures well supply
   The furrows of the ground.
  5 The thirsty ridges drink their fill,
   And ranks of corn appear;
Thy ways abound with blessings still,
   Thy goodness crowns the year.

PSALM 65. Third Part. P.M.
The province of God in the seasons.

  1    HOW pleasing is thy voice,
   O Lord, our heav'nly King,
   That bids the frosts retire,
   And wakes the lovely spring!
