PSALM 129. C.M.
Persecutors punished. (cont.)

  7 The reaper ne'er shall fill his hands,
   Nor binder fold the sheaves:
  8 It springs and withers on the place:
   No traveller bestows
A word of blessing on the grass,
   Nor minds it as he goes.

PSALM 130. C.M.
Pardoning grace.

  1 OUT of the depths of long distress,
   The borders of despair,
I sent my cries to seek thy grace,
   My groans to move thine ear.
  2 Great God! should thy severer eye
   And thine impartial hand,
Mark and revenge iniquity,
   No mortal flesh could stand.
  3 But there are pardons with my God
   For crimes of high degree;
Thy Son has bought them with his blood,
   To draw us near to thee.
  4 I wait for thy salvation, Lord,
   With strong desires I wait;
My soul, invited by thy word,
   Stands watching at thy gate.
  5 Just as the guards, that keep the night,
   Long for the morning skies;
Watch the first beams of breaking light;
   And meet them with their eyes;
  6 So waits my soul to see thy grace,
   And, more intent than they,
Meets the first op'nings of thy face,
   And finds a brighter day.
  7 Then in the Lord let Israel trust;
   Let Israel seek his face:

PSALM 130. C.M.
Pardoning grace. (cont.)

  7 The Lord is good, as well as just,
   And plenteous in his grace.
  8 There's full redemption at his throne
   For sinners long enslav'd:
The great Redeemer is his Son;
   And Israel shall be sav'd.

PSALM 131. C.M.
Humility and submission.

  1 IS there ambition in my heart?
   Search, gracious God, and see;
Or do I act a haughty part?
   Lord, I appeal to thee.
  2 I charge my thoughts, be humble still,
   And all my carriage mild;
Content, my Father, with thy will,
   And quiet as a child.
  3 The patient soul, the lowly mind
   Shall have a large reward:
Let saints in sorrow lie resign'd,
   And trust a faithful Lord.

PSALM 132. First Part. C.M.
At the ordination of a minister.

  1 WHERE shall we go, to seek and find
A habitation for our God;
A dwelling for th' eternal mind,
Among the sons of flesh and blood?
  2 The God of Jacob chose the hill
Of Zion for his ancient rest;
And Zion is his dwelling still;
His church is with his presence blest.
  3 Here will I fix my gracious throne,
And reign for ever, saith the Lord;
Here shall my pow'r and love be known,
And blessings shall attend my word.
