PSALM 112. C.M.
The blessings of the pious and charitable. (cont.)

  2 So God shall answer his request
   With blessings on his seed.
  3 No evil tidings shall surprise
   His well establish'd mind:
His soul to God, his refuge, flies,
   And leaves his fears behind.
  4 In times of general distress
   Some beams of light shall shine,
To show the world his righteousness,
   And give him peace divine,
  5 His works of piety and love
   Remain before the Lord:
Honour on earth, and joys above,
   Shall be his sure reward.

PSALM 113. L.M.
The sovereignty and goodness of God.

  1 YE servants of th' Almighty King,
In ev'ry age his praises sing:
Where'er the sun shall rise or set,
The nations shall his praise repeat.
  2 Above the earth, beyond the sky,
Stands his high throne of majesty:
Nor time, nor place, his pow'r restrain,
Nor bound his universal reign.
  3 Which of the sons of Adam dare,
Or angels with their God compare?
His glories how divinely bright,
Who dwells in uncreated light!
  4 Behold his love! he stoops to view
What saints above, and angels do;
And condescends yet more to know
The mean affairs of men below.
  5 From dust and cottages obscure,
His grace exalts the humble poor:

PSALM 113. L.M.
The sovereignty and goodness of God. (cont.)

  5 Gives them the honour of his sons,
And fits them for their heav'nly thrones.
  6 A word of his creating voice
Can make the barren house rejoice;
Tho' Sarah's ninety years were past,
The promis'd seed is born at last.
  7 With joy the mother views her son,
And tells the wonders God has done:
Faith may grow strong, when sense despairs;
Tho' nature fails, the promise bears.

PSALM 114. L.M.
Miracles attending Israel's journey.

  1 WHEN Israel freed from Pharaoh's hand,
Left the proud tyrant and his land;
The tribes with cheerful homage own
Their King, and Judah was his throne.
  2 Across the deep their journey lay;
The deep divides to make them way;
Jordan beheld their march, and fled
With backward current to his head.
  3 The mountains shook, like frighted sheep;
Like lambs, the little hillocks leap;
Nor Sinai, on her base, could stand,
Conscious of sov'reign pow'r at hand.
  4 What pow'r could make the deep divide?
Or Jordan, backward roll his tide?
Why did ye leap, ye little hills?
And whence the fright that Sinai feels?
  5 Let ev'ry mountain, ev'ry flood,
Retire and know th' approaching God;
The king of Israel, see him here;
Tremble thou earth, adore and fear.
  6 He thunders, and all nature mourns;
The rocks to standing pools he turns;
