2 From night to day, from day to night,
The dawning and the dying light,

Lectures of heavenly wisdom read j
With silent eloquence they raise
Our thoughts to our Creator's praise,

And neither sound nor language need.

o 3 Yet their divine instructions run,
Far as the joiirneys of the sun ;

And every nation knows their voice :
The sun, like sortie young bridegroom dresse(^,
Breaks from the chambers of the east ;

Rolls round and makes the earth rejoice.

g 4 Where'er he spreads his beams abroad,
He smiles and speaks his Maker God ;
All nature joins to show thy praise :
Thus God in every creature shines :
— Fair is the book of nature's lines ;.
But fairer is the book of grace.}

BAUSE.

b 5 I love the volumes of thy word ; —
What light and joy these leaves afford

e To souls benighted and distre.sse4 !

— Thy prepepts guide my doubtful way,
Thy fear forbids my feet to stray,
Thy promise leads my heart to rest.

6 From the discoveries of thy law,
The perfect rules of life I draw ;

These are my study and delight :
b Not honey so invites the taste.

Nor gold that has the furnace passed.

Appears so pleasing to the sight.

e 7 Thy threatenings wake my slumbering eyes,

And warn me where my danger lies ;
p But 'tis thy blessed gospel, Lord,



PSALM 20. 83

That makes my guilty conscience clean,
Converts my soul, subdues my sin,
And gives a free, but large reward.

e 8 Who knows the errors of his thoughts ?
My God, forgive my secret faults.

And from presumptuous sins restrain :
—Accept my poor attempts of praise,
That I have read thy book of grace ,-
And book of nature iiot in vain.



PSALM 20. L. M. Blendon. [*]
Prayer and Hope of Victory.

1 "IVrOW may the God of power and grace
_L 1 Attend his people's humble cry !

Jehovah hears when Israel prays.
And brings deliverance from on high.

2 The name of Jacob's God defends,
Better than shields or brazerl walls ;
He from his sanctuary sends
Succour and strength when Zion calls.

t 3 Well he remembers all our sighs,
His love exceeds our best deserts ;
His love accepts the sacrifice —
Of humble groans and broken hearts.

d 4 In his salvation is our hope ;
And in the name of Israel's God,
Our troops shall lift their banners tip,-
Our navies spread their flags abroad.

-^-5 Some trust in horses trained for war,
And some of chariots make their hoists ,■

Our surest expectations are

From thee, the Lord of heavenly hosts.

6 [O may the memory of thy name
Inspire our armies for the fight !
d Our foes shall fall and die with sliame,
Or quit the field with shaHmeful flight.]

—7 Now save us. Lord, from slavish fear,

Now let our hope be firm and strong ;
o Till thy salvation shall appear,
s And joy and triumph raise the song.

PSALM 21. C. M. Sunday. [*]
Our Country the Care of Heaven.

1 [/^U^ land, O Lord, with songs of praise

\y Shall in thy strength rejoice ;
And, blest with thy salvation, raise
To heaven their cheerful voice.

2 Thy sure defence, through nations round,
Has spread our wondrous name ;

And our successful actions crowned
With dignity and fame.

3 Then let our land on God alone
For timely aid rely ;

His mercy, which adorns his throne,
Shall all our wants supply.

4 But, righteous Lord, thy stubborn foes
Shall feel thy dreadful hand ;

Thy vengeful arm shall find out those
Who hate all just command.

5 When thou against them dost engage.
Thy just but dreadful doom

Shall, like a fiery oven's rage,
Their hopes and them consume.

6 Thus, Lord, thy wondrous power declare,
And thus exalt thy fame ;

Whilst we glad songs of praise prepare
For thine almighty name.]

In the salvation of thy hand !
g Lord, thou hast raised his kingdom high.

And given the world to his command.

Nor does the least request withhold ;
Blessings of love prevent him still,

PSALM 22. 85



Blest with the favour of thy face,

1 ["^'XrHY has my God my soul forsook,

(Thus David once in anguish spoke,
And thus our dying Lord.)

2 Though 'tis my chief delight to dwell
Among thy praising saints ;

Yet thou canst hear a groan as wellj
And pity our complaints.

3 Our fathers trusted in thy name,
And great deliverance found :

But I'm a worm despised of men,
And trodden to the ground.

4 Shaking the head, they pass me by^
And laugh my soul to scorn ;

" In vain he trusts in God," they cry,
" Neglected and forlorn."

5 But thou art he who formed my fleshy
By thine almighty word ;

And since I hung upon the breast,
My hope is in the Lord.

6 Why will my Father hide his face.
When foes stand threatening round,

In the dark hour of deep distress,
And not a helper found .?

PAUSS.

7 Behold thy darling left among
The cruel and the proud ;

As bulls of Bashan fierce and strong,
As lions roaring loud.

8 From earth and hell my sorrows meet.
To multiply the smart ;

They nail my hands, they pierce my feetj
And try to vex my heart.



86 PSALM 22.



9 Yet if thy sovereign hand let loose
The rage of earth and hell ;

Why will my heavenly Father bruise
The Son he loves so well ?

10 My God, if possible it be,
Withhold this bitter cup :

But I resign my will to thee,
And drink the sorrows up.

11 My heart dissolves in pangs unknown ;
In groans 1 waste my breath :

Thy heavy hand hath brought me down,
Low as the dust of death.

12 Father, I give my spirit up,
And trust it in thy hand ;

My dying flesh shall rest in hope,
And rise at thy command.]

Christ's Sufferings and Exaltation.
"OW let our mournful songs record

And shook their heads, and laughed in scorn j

How they stood round like savage beasts !

Like lions gaping to devour.

When God had left him in their power,
p 5 They wound his head, his hands, his feet,

Till streams of blood each other meet ;

By lot his garments they divide,

And mock the pangs in which he died.

— 6 But God his Father heard his cry ;
o Raised from the dead, he reigns on high ;
— The nations learn his righteousness.
