PSALM 144. First Part. C.M.
Victory in the spirtual warfare.

  1 FOR ever blessed be the Lord,
   My Saviour and my shield;
He sends his Spirit with his word,
   To arm me for the field.
  2 When sin and hell their force unite,
   He makes my soul his care;
Instructs me to the heav'nly fight,
   And guards me thro' the war.
  3 A friend and helper so divine,
   Does my weak courage raise;
He makes the glorious vict'ry mine;
   And his shall be the praise.

PSALM 144. Second Part. C.M.
The vanity of men.

  1 LORD, what is man, poor feeble man,
   Born of the earth at first!
His life a shadow, light and vain,
   Still hast'ning to the dust.
  2 O what is feeble dying man,
   Or any of his race,
That God should make it his concern
   To visit him with grace!
  3 That God, who darts his lightnings down;
   Who shakes the worlds above;
While mountains tremble at his frown:
   How wondrous is his love!

PSALM 144. Third Part. L.M.
The happy nation.

  1 HAPPY the city, where their sons
Like pillars round a palace set,
And daughters, bright as polish'd stones,
Give strength and beauty to the state.

PSALM 144. Third Part. L.M.
The happy nation. (cont.)

  2 Happy the country, where the sheep,
Cattle, and corn, have large increase;
Where men securely work, or sleep,
Nor sons of plunder break their peace.
  3 Happy the nation thus endow'd:
But more divinely blest are those,
On whom the all-sufficient God,
Himself with all his grace bestows.

PSALM 145. First Part. L.M.
The greatness of God.

  1 MY God, my King, thy various praise
Shall fill the remnant of my days;
Thy grace employ my humble tongue,
Till death and glory raise the song.
  2 The wings of ev'ry hour shall bear
   Some thankful tribute to thine ear;
And ev'ry setting sun shall see
   New works of duty done for thee.
  3 Thy truth and justice I'll proclaim;
Thy bounty flows an endless stream;
Thy mercy swift; thine anger slow;
But dreadful to the stubborn foe.
  4 Thy works with sov'reign glory shine,
And speak thy majesty divine:
Let Zion in her courts proclaim
The sound and honour of thy name.
  5 Let distant times and nations raise
The long succession of thy praise;
And unborn ages make my song
The joy and labour of their tongue.
  6 6 But who can speak thy wondrous deeds?
Thy greatness all our thoughts exceeds:
Vast and unsearchable thy ways;
Vast and immortal be thy praise.
