PSALM 105. Third Part. C.M.
Israel led through the wilderness to Canaan. (cont.)

  1 Egyptian spoils supplied their need,
Nor was one feeble found.
  2 The Lord himself chose out their way,
   And marked their journies right;
Gave them a leading cloud by day,
   A fiery guide by night.
  3 They thirst: and waters from the rock
   In rich abundance flow;
And foll'wing still the course they took,
   Ran all the desert through.
  4 O wondrous stream! O blessed type
   Of everflowing grace!
So Christ our rock maintains our life,
   Thro' all the wilderness.
  5 Thus guarded by th' Almighty's hand,
   The chosen tribes possest
Canaan, the rich, the promis'd land;
   And there enjoy 'd their rest.
  6 Then let the world forbear its rage,
   The Church renounce her fear:
Israel must live thro' cv'ry age,
   And be th' Almighty's care.

PSALM 106. First Part. L.M.
Communion with saints.

  1 TO God the great, the ever blest,
Let songs of honour be addrest:
His mercy firm for ever stands;
Give him the thanks his love demands.
  2 Who knows the wonders of thy ways?
Who shall fulfil thy boundless praise?
Blest are the souls that fear thee still,
And pay their duty to thy will.
  3 Remember what thy mercy did
For Jacob's race, thy chosen seed;

PSALM 106. First Part. L.M.
Communion with saints. (cont.)

  3 And with the same salvation bless
The meanest suppliant of thy grace.
  4 O may I see thy tribes rejoice,
And aid their triumphs with my voice!
This is my glory, Lord, to be
Join'd to thy saints, and near to thee.

PSALM 106. Second Part. L.M.
The unchangeable love of God.

  1 GOD of eternal love,
   How fickle are our ways!
And yet how oft did Israel prove
   Thy constancy of grace!
  2 They saw thy wonders wrought,
   And then thy praise they sung;
But soon thy works of pow'r forgot,
   And murmur'd with their tongue.
  3 Now they believ'd his word,
   While rocks with rivers flow;
Now with their lusts provok'd the Lord,
   And he reduc'd them low.
  4 Yet when they mourn'd their faults,
   He hearken'd to their groans;
Brought his own cov'nant to his thoughts,
   And call'd them still his sons.
  5 Their names were in his book;
   He sav'd them from their foes:
Oft he chastis'd, but ne'er forsook
   The people that he chose.
  6 Let Israel bless the Lord,
   Who lov'd their ancient race;
And Christians join the solemn word,
   Amen, to all their praise.
