PSALM 116. Second Part. C.M.
Public thanks for private deliverance. (cont.)

  2 Among the saints that fill thine house
   My off 'rings shall be paid;
There shall my zeal perform the vows,
   My soul in anguish made.
  3 How much is mercy thy delight,
   Thou ever blessed God!
How dear thy servants in thy sight!
   How precious is their blood!
  4 How happy all thy servants are!
   How great thy grace to me!
My life, which thou hast made thy care,
   Lord, I devote to thee.
  5 Now I am thine, forever thine,
   Nor shall my purpose move; Thy hand hath loos'd my bonds of pain,
   And bound me with thy love.
  6 Here in thy courts I leave my vow,
   And thy rich grace record;
Witness, ye saints who hear me now,
   If I forsake the Lord.

PSALM 117. L.M.
Praise to God from all nations.

  1 FROM all that dwell below the skies
Let the Creator's praise arise:
Let the Redeemer's name be sung
Thro' ev'ry land, by ev'ry tongue.
  2 Eternal are thy mercies, Lord;
Eternal truth attends thy word;
Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore,
Till suns shall rise and set no more.

PSALM 118. First Part. C.M.
Deliverance from a tumult. (cont.)

  1 Whate'er the sons of earth may do,
   Since heav'n affords its aid.
  2 'Tis safer, Lord, to hope in thee,
   And have my God my friend,
Than trust in men of high degree,
   And on their truth depend.
  3 'Tis thro' the Lord my heart is strong,
   In him my lips rejoice;
While his salvation is my song,
   How cheerful is my voice!
  4 Like angry bees, they girt me round;
   When God appears, they fly:
So burning thorns with crackling sound,
   Make a fierce blaze, and die.
  5 Joy to the saints, and peace belongs;
   The Lord protects their days:
Let Israel tune immortal songs
   To his almighty grace.

PSALM 118. Second Part. C.M.
Public praise for deliverance from death.

  1 LORD, thou hast heard thy servant cry,
   And rescu'd from the grave;
Now shall he live: for none can die,
   If God resolve to save.
  2 Thy praise more constant than before,
   Shall fill his daily breath;
Thy hand that hath chastis'd him sore,
   Defends him still from death.
  3 Open the gates of Zion now,
   For we shall worship there;
The house where all the righteous go,
   Thy mercy to declare.
  4 Among th' assemblies of thy saints
   Our thankful voice we raise;
