PSALM 107. First Part. L.M.
Israel led to Canaan, and Christians to heaven.

  1 GIVE thanks to God; he reigns above;
Kind are his thoughts, his name is love:
His mercy ages past have known,
And ages long to come shall own.
  2 Let the redeemed of the Lord
The wonders of his grace record;
Israel, the nation whom he chose,
And rescued from their mighty foes.
  3 In their distress to God they cried,
God was their Saviour and their guide;
He led their march far wand'ring round:
'Twas the right path to Canaan's ground.
  4 Thus when our first release we gain
From sin's old yoke and Satan's chain,
We have this desert world to pass,
A dang'rous and a tiresome place.
  5 He feeds and clothes us all the way,
He guides our footsteps lest we stray;
He guards us with a pow'rful hand,
And brings us to the heav'nly land.
  6 O let the saints with joy record
The truth and goodness of the Lord!
How great his works! how kind his ways!
Let ev'ry tongue pronounce his praise.

PSALM 107. Second Part. L.M.
Correction for sin, and release by prayer.

  1 FROM age to age exalt his name;
God and his grace are still the same:
He fills the hungry soul with food,
And feeds the poor with ev'ry good.
  2 But if their hearts rebel and rise
Against the God, that rules the skies;

PSALM 107. Second Part. L.M.
Correction for sin, and release by prayer. (cont.)

  2 If they reject his heav'nly word,
And slight the counsels of the Lord;
  3 He'll bring their spirits to the ground,
And no deliv'rer shall be found:
Laden with grief they waste their breath
In darkness, and the shades of death.
  4 He cuts the bars of brass in two,
And lets the smiling pris'ners thro';
Takes off the load of guilt and grief,
And gives the lab'ring soul relief.
  5 Then to the Lord they raise their cries;
He makes the dawning light arise;
And scatters all that dismal shade,
That hung so heavy round their head.
  6 O may the sons of men record
The wondrous goodness of the Lord!
How great his works, how kind his ways!
Let ev'ry tongue pronounce his praise.

PSALM 107. Third Part. L.M.
Intemperance punished and pardoned.

  1 VAIN man, on foolish pleasures bent,
Prepares for his own punishment:
What pains, what loathsome maladies
From luxury and lust arise!
  2 The drunkard feels his vitals waste,
Yet drowns his health to please his taste;
Till all his active pow'rs are lost,
And fainting life draws near the dust.
  3 The glutton groans, and loathes to eat;
His soul abhors delicious meat:
Nature with heavy loads opprest,
Would yield to death to be releas'd.
  4 Behold the fright'ned sinners fly
To God for help with earnest cry!
