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

  4 His wond'rous names and pow'rs rehearse;
His honours shall enrich your verse.
  5 He shakes the heav'ns with loud alarms;
How terrible is God in arms!
In Israel are his mercies known,
Israel is his peculiar throne.
  6 Proclaim him King, pronounce him blest;
He's your defence, your joy, your rest:
When terrors rise, and nations faint,
God is the strength of ev'ry saint.

PSALM 68. Second Part. L.M.
The ascension of Christ, and the gift of the Spirit.

  1 LORD, when thou did'st ascend on high,
Ten thousand angels fill'd the sky:
Those heav'nly guards around thee wait,
Like chariots, that attend thy state.
  2 Not Sinai's mountain could appear
More glorious when the Lord was there;
While he pronounc'd his dreadful law.
And struck the chosen tribes with awe.
  3 How bright the triumph none can tell,
When the rebellious pow'rs of hell,
That thousand souls had captive made,
Were all in chains like captives led.
  4 Rais'd by his Father to the throne,
He sent the promis'd spirit down,
With gifts and grace for rebel men,
That God might dwell on earth again.

PSALM 68. Third Part. L.M.
Praise for common and special mercies.

  1 WE bless the Lord, the just, the good,
Who fills our hearts with joy and food;
Who pours his blessings from the skies,
And loads our days with rich supplies.

PSALM 68. Third Part. L.M.
Praise for common and special mercies. (cont.)

  2 He sends the sun his circuit round,
To cheer the fruits, to warm the ground;
He bids the clouds, with plenteous rain,
Refresh the thirsty earth again.
  3 'Tis to his care we owe our breath,
And all our near escapes from death:
Safety and health to God belong,
He heals the weak, and guards the strong.
  4 He makes the saint and sinner prove
The common blessings of his love:
But the wide diff'rence that remains,
Is endless joy, and endless pains.
  5 The Lord that bruis'd the serpent's head,
On all the serpent's seed shall tread:
The stubborn sinner's hope confound,
And smite him with a lasting wound.
  6 But his right hand his saints shall raise
From the deep earth, or deeper seas;
And bring them to his courts above:
There shall they taste his special love.

PSALM 69. First Part. L.M.
Christ's passion and sinners' salvation.

  1 DEEP in our hearts let us record
The deeper sorrows of our Lord;
Behold! the rising billows roll,
To overwhelm his holy soul.
  2 In long complaints he spends his breath,
While hosts of hell, and pow'rs of death,
And all the sons of malice join
To execute their curs'd design.
  3 Yet, gracious God, thy pow'r and love
Has made the curse a blessing prove:
Those dreadful suff'rings of thy Son
Aton'd for sins which we had done.
