PSALM 147. First Part. L.M.
Providence and grace. (cont.)

  4 He crowns the meek, rewards the just,
And treads the wicked to the dust.
  5 The saints are lovely in his sight:
On them he looks with great delight:
He sees their hope, he knows their fear,
And views, and loves his image there.

PSALM 147. Second Part. L.M.
Summer and Winter.

  1 LET Zion praise the mighty God,
And make his honours known abroad:
For sweet the joy our songs to raise,
And glorious is the work of praise.
  2 Our children live secure and blest;
Our shores have peace, our cities rest;
He feeds our sons with finest wheat,
And adds his blessing to their meat.
  3 The changing seasons he ordains,
The early and the latter rains;
His flakes of snow, like wool, he sends,
And thus the springing corn defends.
  4 With hoary frost he strews the ground;
His hail descends with dreadful sound;
His icy bands the rivers hold,
And terror arms his wintry cold.
  5 He bids the warmer breezes blow,
The ice dissolves, the waters flow;
But he hath nobler works and ways
To call his children to his praise.
  6 Thro' all our coasts his laws are shown,
His gospel thro' the nation known:
He hath not thus reveal'd his word
To ev'ry land: Praise ye the Lord.

PSALM 147. Third Part. C.M.
The seasons of the year.

  1 WITH songs and honours sounding loud
   Address the Lord on high;
Around the heav'ns he spreads his cloud,
   And waters veil the sky.
  2 He sends his show'rs of blessings down
   To cheer the plains below;
He makes the grass the mountains crown,
   And corn in valleys grow.
  3 He gives the grazing ox his meat,
   He hears the raven's cry;
But man, who tastes his finest wheat,
   Should raise his honours high.
  4 His steady counsels change the face
   Of the declining year;
He bids the sun cut short his race,
   And wintry days appear.
  5 His hoary frost, his fleecy snow,
   Descend and clothe the ground:
The liquid streams forbear to flow,
   In icy fetters bound.
  6 When from his dreadful stores on high
   He pours the rattling hail;
The wretch, that dares his God defy,
   Shall find his courage fail.
  7 He sends his word, and melts the snow;
   The fields no longer mourn;
He calls the southern gales to blow,
   And bids the spring return.
  8 The changing wind, the flying cloud,
   Obey his mighty word:
With songs and honours sounding loud,
   Praise ye the sov'reign Lord.
