PSALM 66. Second Part. C.M.
Praise to God for hearing prayer. (cont.)

  1 Who heard the long requests I made
   In my distressful hour.
  2 My lips and cheerful heart prepare
   To make his mercies known:
Come, ye that fear my God, and hear
   The wonders, he hath done.
  3 When on my head huge sorrows fell,
   I sought his heav'nly aid;
He sav'd my sinking soul from hell,
   And death's eternal shade.
  4 If sin lay cover'd in my heart,
   While pray'r employ 'd my tongue,
The Lord had shown me no regard,
   Nor I his praises sung.
  5 But God (his name be ever blest)
   Hath set my spirit free;
Nor turned from him my poor request,
   Nor turn'd his heart from me.

PSALM 67. C.M.
The prosperity of the nation, and increase of the church.

  1 SHINE on our land, Jehovah, shine,
   With beams of heav'nly grace!
Reveal thy pow'r thro' all our coasts,
   And show thy smiling face.
  2 Here fix thy throne exalted high,
   And, here, our glory stand;
And, like a wall of guardian fire,
   Surround thy fav'rite land.
  3 When shall thy name from shore to shore
   Sound all the earth abroad,
And distant nations know and love
   Their Saviour and their God!
  4 Sing to the Lord, ye distant lands,
   Sing loud with solemn voice;

PSALM 67. C.M.
The prosperity of the nation, and increase of the church. (cont.)

  4 Let thankful tongues exalt his praise,
   And thankful hearts rejoice.
  5 He, the great Lord, the sov'reign Judge,
   That sits enthron'd above,
Wisely commands the worlds, he made,
   In justice and in love.
  6 Earth shall confess her Maker's hand,
   And yield a full increase:
Our God will crown his chosen land
   With fruitfulness and peace.
  7 God, the Redeemer, scatters round
   His choicest favours here;
While the creation's utmost bound
   Shall see, adore, and fear.

PSALM 68. First Part. L.M.
The vengeance and compassion of God.

  1 LET God arise in all his might,
And put the troops of hell to flight:
As smoke, that sought to cloud the skies,
Before the rising tempest flies.
  2 He rides and thunders thro' the sky;
His name Jehovah sounds on high;
Sing to his name, ye sons of grace:
Ye saints rejoice before his face.
  3 The widow and the fatherless
Fly to his aid in sharp distress;
In him, the poor and helpless find
A Judge, that's just, a Father kind.
  4 He breaks the captive's heavy chain,
And pris'ners see the light again;
But rebels, that dispute his will.
Shall dwell in chains and darkness still.
  5 Kingdoms and thrones to God belong;
Crown him, ye nations, in your song:
