PSALM 95. First Part. C.M.
A psalm before prayer. (cont.)

  1 Earth, with its caverns dark and deep,
   Lies in his spacious hand;
He fix'd the seas, what bounds to keep,
   And where the hills must stand.
  2 Come, and with humble souls adore,
   Come, kneel before his face;
O! may the creatures of his pow'r
   Be children of his grace!
  3 Now is the time: he bends his ear,
   And waits for your request:
Come, lest he rouse his wrath, and swear
   "Ye shall not see my rest."

PSALM 95. Second Part. S.M.
A psalm before sermon.

  1 COME, sound his praise abroad,
   And hymns of glory sing:
Jehovah is the sovereign God,
   The universal King.
HL Note
  2 He form'd the deeps unknown;
   He gave the seas their bound;
The wat'ry worlds are all his own,
   And all the solid ground.
  3 Come worship at his throne,
   Come bow before the Lord:
We are his work, and not our own,
   He form'd us by his word.
  4 To-day attend his voice,
   Nor dare provoke his rod:
Come, like the people of his choice,
   And own your gracious God.
  5 But if your ears refuse
   The language of his grace;
And hearts grow hard like stubborn Jews,
   That unbelievinsr race:

PSALM 95. Second Part. S.M.
A psalm before sermon. (cont.)

  6 The Lord in vengeance drest
   Will lift his hand and swear;
"Ye that despise my promis'd rest,
   "Shall have no portion there."

PSALM 95. Third Part. L.M.
A call to delaying sinners.

  1 COME, let our souls address the Lord,
Who fram'd our natures with his word:
He is our shepherd; we the sheep,
His mercy chose, his pastures keep.
  2 Come, let us hear his voice to-day,
The counsels of his love obey;
Nor let our harden'd hearts renew
The sins and plagues that Israel knew.
  3 Seize the kind promise, while it waits,
And march to Zion's heav'niy gates;
Believe, and take the promis'd rest:
Obey, and be for ever blest.

PSALM 96. First Part. C.M.
The first and second coming of Christ.

  1 SING to the Lord, ye distant lands,
   Ye tribes of ev'ry tongue;
His rich display of grace demands
   A new and nobler song.
  2 Say to the nations, Jesus reigns,
   God's own almighty Son:
His pow'r the sinking world sustains,
   And grace surrounds his throne.
  3 Let heav'n proclaim the joyful day;
   Joy thro' the earth be seen:
Let cities shine in bright array,
   And fields in cheerful green.
  4 Let an unusual joy surprise
   The islands of the sea:
