PSALM 71. Second Part. C.M.
Christ is our strength and righteousness. (cont.)

  4 I'll plead thy perfect righteousness,
   And mention none but thine.
  5 How will my lips rejoice to tell
   The victories of my King!
My soul, redeem'd from sin and hell,
   Shall thy salvation sing.
  6 My tongue shall all the day proclaim
   My Saviour and my God;
His death hath brought my foes to shame;
   He sav'd me bv his blood.
  7 Awake, awake, my tuneful pow'rs,
   With this delightful song:
I'll entertain the darkest hours,
   Nor think the season long.

PSALM 71. Third Part. C.M.
The aged christian's prayer and song.

  1 GOD of my childhood, and my youth,
   The guide of all my days,
I have declared thy heav'nly truth,
   And told thy wond'rous ways.
  2 Wilt thou forsake my hoary hairs,
   And leave my fainting heart?
Who shall sustain my sinking years
   If God, my strength, depart?
  3 Let me thy pow'r and truth proclaim
   To the surviving age;
And leave a savour of thy name,
   When I shall quit the stage.
  4 The land of silence and of death
   Attends my next remove:
O may these poor remains of breath
   Teach the wide world thy love!
  5 Thy righteousness is deep and high:
   Unsearchable thy deeds:

PSALM 71. Third Part. C.M.
The aged christian's prayer and song. (cont.)

  5 Thy glory spreads beyond the sky,
   And all my praise exceeds.
  6 Oft have I heard thy threat'nings roar,
   And oft endur'd the grief;
But when thy hand has prest me sore,
   Thy grace was my relief.
  7 By long experience have I known
   Thy sov'reign pow'r to save:
At thy command, I venture down
   Securely to the grave.
  8 When I lie buried deep in dust,
   My flesh shall be thy care:
These with'ring limbs with thee I trust,
   To raise them strong and fair.

PSALM 72. First Part. L.M.
The kingdom of Christ.

  1 GREAT God, whose universal sway
The known and unknown worlds obey,
Now give the kingdom to thy Son,
Extend his pow'r, exalt his throne.
  2 Thy sceptre well becomes his hands,
All heav'n submits to his commands;
His justice shall avenge the poor,
And pride and rage prevail no more.
  3 With pow'r he vindicates the just,
And treads th' oppressor in the dust;
His worship and his fear shall last,
'Till hours, and years, and time be past.
  4 As rain on meadows newly mown,
So shall he send his influence down:
His grace on fainting souls distils,
Like hcav'nly dew on thirsty hills.
  5 The heathen lands, that lie beneath
The shades of overspreading death,
