PREFACE.



'THE SELECT PSALMS constitute what may be
called the Shortened Psalter in Mr. Wesley's SUNDAY
SERVICE, published in 1784. It is a skillful abbreviation
of the Psalms of David, as used for congregational read-
ing by the Church of England. No Psalm is robbed of
its identity ; and yet whole Psalms and parts of others are
freely omitted to secure a more perfect aid to Christian
Worship.

The present edition is in response to a demand for the
work, which has become quite decided since the merits
of Mr. Wesley's arrangement have been more clearly re-
called. In preparing it, the substitution of King James's
Version for that of the English Prayer-Book was consid-
ered imperative. Notwithstanding this change of version,
the marks of Mr. Wesley's rare judgment are effectually
preserved. The Psalms are divided into Morning and
Evening Lessons for every day in the Month ; those for
the thirtieth day being also appointed for use when
service falls on the thirty-first. The Minister has, there-
fore, only to remember the Day of the Month, and suit-
able Lessons for this part of the service are always at
hand.

Following the PSALMS for Morning and Evening, will



2 PREFACE.

be found thirty additional SELECTIONS OF PSALMS AND
OTHER SCRIPTURES, including certain valued parts of
the Psalter omitted by Mr. Wesley; from which, at times,
the Minister will prefer to read instead of the Psalms
for the Day.

These are for the most part integral portions of Script-
ure, and adapted to a wide diversity of occasions.

Mr. Wesley's urgency to have the GREAT FESTIVALS
of the Christian Year observed in the Church has not
been forgotten. His tables of Proper Psalms on Certain
Days, and Proper Lessons for Particular Days, will
greatly facilitate this object.

Attention is also invited to the Catechism, now pub-
lished for the first time in its true relation to the Ritual
and Economy of the Church. Some valuable extracts,
mainly from the SUNDAY SERVICE, complete the volume ;
and altogether the Editor hopes the Compilation will
prove a useful Hand-book of Methodist Worship.

He counts it a great honor to have the cordial appro-
bation of Bishop Edward G. Andrews, D.D., LL.D.; and
he also returns thanks to a number of brethren who are
aware of the aid their judgment has afforded him.

CHARLES S. HARROWER.



EPISCOPAL NOTE.



HTHOUGH marked throughout by excellent judg-
ment and taste, the SUNDAY SERVICE prepared
by Mr. Wesley in 1784 for American Methodists
never gained general acceptance among them, and
soon fell entirely out of use. The simple order of
worship to which they were accustomed better
suited the conditions of the rising Church, and for
nearly a century was almost uniformly observed
among us.

Recently a natural desire to dignify and enrich
public worship has arisen in many quarters. It has
led not only to a bewildering diversity in the services
of our Church, but often also to the substitution
of unseemly and even grotesque individual conceits
for a harmonious, reasonable, and historic order.
Caprice, unrestrained by knowledge or experience,
seems often to fix the succession of hymn, doxology,
lesson, and prayer.

The General Conference of 1888, taking note of
the desire above spoken of, and also of these evils,
after due deliberation established and enjoined a uni-
form order of public worship. This order adopts



EPISCOPAL NOTE.



some of the better usages recently risen among
us. It does not forbid particular churches to inter-
weave with its own unchangeable frame-work of
worship additional matter, as the Creed, the Gloria
Patri, and the Anthem. And it expressly permits
the use of responsive reading.

Fortunately, at this point the Church can avail it-
self of the wisdom of its venerated founder, Mr.
Wesley. In this volume are set forth his admirable
selections of psalms for every day of the month,
together with other selections for special occasions.
With these are associated other valuable matter,
drawn in part from the SUNDAY SERVICE, and in
part from the authorized standards of the Church.
The editorial work has been done wisely and with
a just valuation of the characteristics both of our
particular church life and of that larger church life
of which we are part. The volume may therefore
be warmly commended to all who prize order, dig-
nity, and a not too inflexible uniformity in the
service of the sanctuary.

I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic Church, the communion of

PSALM 1.

DLESSED is the man that walketh not in the
*~* counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way
of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

But his delight is in the law of the LORD ; and
in his law doth he meditate day and night.

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers
of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season ;
his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he
doeth shall prosper.

The ungodly are not so : but are like the chaff
which the wind driveth away.

Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the
judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the
righteous.

For the LORD knoweth the way of the right-
eous : but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

PSALM 2.

A17HY do the heathen rage, and the people

imagine a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves, and the

rulers take counsel together, against the LORD,
and against his Anointed, saying,

Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away
their cords from us.

He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh : the
Lord shall have them in derision.

Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and
vex them in his sore displeasure.

Yet have I set my King upon my holy hill of Zion.

I will declare the decree : the LORD hath said
unto me, Thou art my Son ; this day have I begot-
ten thee.

Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for
thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the
earth for thy possession.

Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron ; thou
shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.

Be wise now therefore, O ye kings : be instructed,
ye judges of the earth.

Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with
trembling.

Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish
from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little.
Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

PSALM 3.

T ORD, how are they increased that trouble me !
*~* many are they that rise up against me.

Many there be which say of my soul, There is no
help for him in God.



The 1st Day. PSALMS. 9

But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me ; my
glory, and the lifter up of mine head.

I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he
heard me out of his holy hill.

I laid me down and slept ;. I awaked ; for the
LORD sustained me.

I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people,
that have set themselves against me round about.

Arise, O LORD ; save me, O my God : for thou
hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek
bone ; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly.

Salvation belongeth unto the LORD : thy blessing
is upon thy people.

PSALM 4.

IT EAR me when I call, O God of my righteous-

ness : thou hast enlarged me when I was in

distress ; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.

O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my
glory into shame ? how long will ye love vanity,
and seek after leasing?

But know that the LORD hath set apart him that
is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I
call unto him.

Stand in awe, and sin not : commune with your
own heart upon your bed, and be still.

Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your
trust in the LORD.

There be many that say, Who will show us any
good? LORD, lift thou up the light of thy coun-
tenance upon us.



10 PSALMS. The 1st Day.

Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than
in the time that their corn and their wine in-
creased.

I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep : for
thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.



PSALM 6.

IVE ear to my words, O LORD ; consider my
meditation.

Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and
my God : for unto thee will I pray.

My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O
LORD ; in the morning will I direct my prayer
unto thee, and will look up.

For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in
wickedness : neither shall evil dwell with thee.

The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou
hatest all workers of iniquity.

Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing : the
LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.

But as for me, I will come into thy house in the
multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I
worship toward thy holy temple.

Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because
of mine enemies ; make thy way straight before my
face.

For there is no faithfulness in their mouth ; their
inward part is very wickedness ; their throat is an
open sepulcher ; they flatter with their tongue.

Destroy thou them, O God ; let them fall by
their own counsels ; cast them out in the multitude



The 3d Day. PSALMS. 11

of their transgressions; for they have rebelled
against thee.

But let all those that put their trust in thee
rejoice : let them ever shout for joy, because thou
defendest them : let them also that love thy name
be joyful in thee.

For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with
favor wilt thou compass him as with a shield.



THE SECOND DAY.

HHorning fJrager.
PSALM 6.

LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither
chasten me in thy hot displeasure.

Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak:
O LORD, heal me ; for my bones are vexed.

My soul is also sore vexed : but thou, O LORD,
how long?

Return, O LORD, deliver my soul : oh save me
for thy mercies' sake.

For in death there is no remembrance of thee :
in the grave who shall give thee thanks ?

I am weary with my groaning ; all the night
make I my bed to swim ; I water my couch with
my tears.

Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth
old because of all mine enemies.

Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity ; for
the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping.



12 PSALMS. The 2d Day.

The LORD hath heard my supplication ; the
LORD will receive my prayer.

Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed :
let them return and be ashamed suddenly.



PSALM 7.

LORD my God, in thee do I put my trust :
save me from all them that persecute me,
and deliver me:

Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending it in
pieces, while there is none to deliver.

O LORD my God, if I have done this ; if there
be iniquity in my hands ;

If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at
peace with me; (yea, I have delivered him that
without cause is mine enemy;)

Let the enemy persecute my soul, and take it ;
yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth,
and lay mine honor in the dust.

Arise, O LORD, in thine anger, lift up thyself
because of the rage of mine enemies : and awake for
me to the judgment that thou hast commanded.

So shall the congregation of the people compass
thee about : for their sakes therefore return thou
on high.

The LORD shall judge the people : judge me, O
LORD, according to my righteousness, and accord-
ing to mine integrity that is in me.

Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an
end ; but establish the just: for the righteous God
trieth the hearts and reins.



The 3d Day. PSALMS. 13

My defence is of God, which saveth the upright
in heart.

God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry
with the wicked every day.

If he turn not, he will whet his sword ; he hath
bent his bow, and made it ready.

He hath also prepared for him the instruments
of death ; he ordaineth his arrows against the per-
secutors.

Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath
conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood.

He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into
the ditch which he made.

His mischief shall return upon his own head,
and his violent dealing shall come down upon his
own pate.

I will praise the LORD according to his right-
eousness : and will sing praise to the name of the
LORD most high.



PSALM 8.

LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name
in all the earth ! who hast set thy glory above
the heavens.

Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast
thou ordained strength because of thine enemies,
that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy
fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast
ordained ;



14 PSALMS. The 2d Day.

What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and
the son of man, that thou visitest him?

For thou hast made him a little lower than the
angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honor.

Thou madest him to have dominion over the
works of thy hands ; thou hast put all things under
his feet :

All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the
field;

The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and
whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.

O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in
all the earth !



I



PSALM 9.

WILL praise thee, O LORD, with my whole

heart ; I will show forth all thy marvelous works.

I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing
praise to thy name, O thou Most High.

When mine enemies are turned back, they shall
fall and perish at thy presence.

For thou hast maintained my right and my cause ;
thou satest in the throne judging right.

Thou hast rebuked the heathen, thou hast de-
stroyed the wicked, thou hast put out their name
for ever and ever.

O thou enemy, destructions are come to a per-
petual end : and thou hast destroyed cities ; their
memorial is perished with them.

But the LORD shall endure for ever: he hath
prepared his throne for judgment.

And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he



The 2d Day. PSALMS. 15

shall minister judgment to the people in upright-
ness.

The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed,
a refuge in times of trouble.

And they that know thy name will put their trust
in thee : for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them
that seek thee.

Sing praises to the LORD, which dwelleth in Zion :
declare among the people his doings.

When he maketh inquisition for blood, he re-
membereth them : he forgetteth not the cry of the
humble.

Have mercy upon me, O LORD ; consider my
trouble which I suffer of them that hate me, thou
that liftest me up from the gates of death :

That I may show forth all thy praise in the gates
of the daughter of Zion : I will rejoice in thy sal-
vation.

The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they
made : in the net which they hid is their own foot
taken.

The LORD is known by the judgment which he
executeth : the wicked is snared in the work of his
own hands.

The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the
nations that forget God.

For the needy shall not always be forgotten : the
expectation of the poor shall not perish forever.

Arise, O LORD ; let not man prevail : let the
heathen be judged in thy sight.

Put them in fear, O LORD : that the nations may
know themselves to be but men.

PSALM 10.

\X7"HY standest thou afar off, O LORD ? why hidest
thou thyself in times of trouble ?

The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor:
let them be taken in the devices that they have
imagined.

For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and
blesseth the covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth.

The wicked, through the pride of his counte-
nance, will not seek after God : God is not in all
his thoughts.

His ways are always grievous; thy judgments
are far above out of his sight : as for all his enemies,
he puffeth at them.

Arise, O LORD ; O God, lift up thine hand : for-
get not the humble.

Wherefore doth the wicked contemn God? he
hath said in his heart, Thou wilt not require it.

Thou hast seen it ; for thou beholdest mischief
and spite, to requite it with thy hand : the poor
committeth himself unto thee ; thou art the helper
of the fatherless.

Break thou the arm of the wicked and the evil
man : seek out his wickedness till thou find none.

The LORD is King for ever and ever : the heathen
are perished out of his land.

LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the humble :
thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine
ear to hear :



The 3d Day. PSALMS. 17

To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that
the man of the earth may no more oppress.



PSALM 11.

TN the LORD put I my trust: how say ye to my
soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?

For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make
ready their arrow upon the string, that they may
privily shoot at the upright in heart.

If the foundations be destroyed, what can the
righteous do?

The LORD is in his holy temple, the LORD'S
throne is in heaven : his eyes behold, his eyelids try,
the children of men.

The LORD trieth the righteous : but the wicked
and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.

Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and
brimstone, and a horrible tempest : this shall be the
portion of their cup.

For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness ;
his countenance doth behold the upright.

PSALM 12.

T T ELP, LORD ; for the godly man ceaseth ; for
* * the faithful fail from among the children of
men.

They speak vanity every one with his neighbor :
with flattering lips and with a double heart do they
speak.

The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, and the
tongue that speaketh proud things :



18 PSALMS. The 3d Day.

Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail ;
our lips are our own : who is lord over us?

For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing
of the needy, now will I arise, saith the LORD ; I
will set him in safety from him that puffeth at
him.

The words of the LORD are pure words : as silver
tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt pre-
serve them from this generation forever.

The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest
men are exalted.



PSALM 13.
