PSALM 109. C.M.
Love to enemies; from the example of Christ.

  1 GOD of my mercy and my praise,
   Thy giory is my song;
Tho' sinners speak against thy grace
   With a blaspheming tongue.
  2 When in the form of mortal man
   Thy Son on earth was found;
With cruel slanders false and vain,
   They compass'd him around.
  3 Their mis'ries his compassion move,
   Their peace he still pursu'd;
They render hatred for his love,
   And evil for his good.
  4 Their malice rag'd without a cause;
   Yet with his dying breath,
He pray'd for murd'rers on his cross,
   And blest his foes in death.
  5 Lord, shall thy bright example shine
   In vain before my eyes?
Give me a soul a-kin to thine,
   To love mine enemies.
  6 The Lord shall on my side engage;
   And in my Saviour's name,
I shall defeat their pride and rage,
   Who slander and condemn.

PSALM 110. First Part. L.M.
The success of the gospel.

  1 THUS the eternal Father spake
To Christ the Son ; "Ascend and sit
"At my right hand, till I shall make
"Thy foes submissive at thy feet.
  2 "From Zion shall thy word proceed;
"Thy word, the sceptre in thy hand.

PSALM 110. First Part. L.M.
The success of the gospel. (cont.)

  2 "Shall make the hearts of rebels bleed,
"And bow their wills to thy command.
  3 "That day shall show thy pow'r is great;
"When saints shall flock with willing minds,
"And sinners crowd thy temple-gate,
"Where holiness in beauty shines."
  4 O blessed pow'r! O glorious day!
What a large vict'ry shall ensue!
And converts, who thy grace obey,
Exceed the drops of morning dew.

PSALM 110. Second Part. C.M.
Christ's kingdom and priesthood.

  1 JESUS, our Lord, ascend thy throne,
   And near thy Father sit:
In Zion shall thy pow'r be known,
   And make thy foes submit.
  2 What wonders shall thy gospel do!
   Thy converts shall surpass
The num'rous drops of morning dew,
   And own thy sov'reign grace.
  3 God hath pronounc'd a firm decree,
   Nor changes what he swore:
"Eternal shall thy priesthood be,
   "When Aaron is no more.
  4 "Melchisedec, that wondrous priest,
   "That king of high degree;
"That holy man, whom Abraham blest,
   "Was but a type of thee."
  5 Jesus our Priest, forever lives,
   To plead for us above;
Jesus our King forever gives
   The blessings of his love.
  6 God shall exalt his glorious head,
   His lofty throne maintain;
