Great is the Lord and marvelous, worthy to be praised.

There is no end of His greatness! Heaven and earth shall praise His name for ever and ever, and declare His power and majesty. Amen.

192.

I WAS GLAD WHEN THEY SAID UNTO ME.

I was glad when they said unto me, "We will go into the house of the Lord!" Oh pray for the peace of Jerusalem, they shall prosper that love thee.

Jerusalem is built as a city that is at unity with itself;

Peace be within thy walls and plenteousness within thy palaces.

193.

YE SHALL DWELL IN THE LAND.

Ye shall dwell in the land that I gave your fathers,

His mercy endureth forever!

And ye shall be my people, and I will be your God;

I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field.

Give thanks unto the Lord, His mercy endureth forever.

And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate in the sight of all that passed by;

And they shall say, "This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden." Give thanks unto the Lord, His mercy en

dureth forever!

THE KING OF GLORY.

(Psalm 24.)

I.

The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof, the world, and they that dwell therein. For He has founded it, upon the sea, and established it upon the floods.

Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? and who shall stand in His holy place?

He that hath clean hands and a pure heart; who hath not inclined his soul to falsehood, nor sworn deceitfully.

He shall receive a blessing from the Lord, and favor from the God of his salvation. This is the race of those that seek Thee; those that seek Thy face, O God of Jacob.

II.

Lift up your heads, O ye gates! lift yourselves up, ye everlasting doors, that the King of glory may come!

"Who is this King of glory?" The Lord, strong and mighty; the Lord, mighty in battle.

Lift up your heads, O ye gates! lift yourselves up, ye everlasting doors, that the King of glory may enter in!

"Who is this King of glory?" The Lord, God of hosts, He is the King of glory.

195.

SING, O HEAVENS.

Sing, O heavens, and be joyful, O earth; break forth into singing, O mountains; For the Lord hath comforted His people and will have mercy on His afflicted.

The Lord shall comfort Zion, He will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the Lord.

Joy and gladness shall be found there in thanksgiving and the voice of melody.

196.

LORD, HOW LONG WILT THOU FORGET ME? Lord, how long wilt Thou forget me? how long wilt Thou hide Thy face in anger from me?

How long within my soul shall I seek for counsel, having sorrow in my spirit daily? how long must I see mine enemy over me triumph?

197.

THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD,

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures;
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul; He leadeth me in the
paths of righteousness for His name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of

the shadow of death, I will fear no evi!: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil, my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

198.

THE LORD IS MY LIGHT.

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life, of whom shall I be afraid? Teach me Thy way, O Lord, and lead me in a plain path!

I had grown faint unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

Wait on the Lord, be strong, and let thine heart take courage; yea, wait thou on the Lord.

199.

MY SOUL PANTETH AFTER THEE.

As the hart panteth after the water-brooks even so panteth my soul after Thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before Him? My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, where is now thy God?

Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me?

Hope thou in God, for I shall yet praise Him who is my salvation and my help.

200.

O LORD, HOW MANIFOLD ARE THY WORKS! O Lord, how manifold are Thy works! in wisdom hast Thou made them all; the earth is full of Thy riches.

Thou waterest the hills from above; the earth is filled with the fruit of Thy works. Thou bringest forth grass for the cattle, and green herb for the service of men.

O Lord, how manifold are Thy works! Thou renewest the face of the earth. Thy glory shall endure forever; the Lord will rejoice in His works.

201.

I WILL SING OF THY POWER.

I will sing of Thy power, O God, and will praise Thy mercy betimes in the morning; For Thou hast been my defence and refuge

in the day of my trouble.

Unto Thee, O my strength, will I sing; for Thou, O God, art my refuge, and my merciful God.

202.

IN THEE, O GOD, DO I PUT MY TRUST.

In Thee, O God, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed.

Cast me not off in the time of old age, forsake me not when my strength faileth.

O God, be not far from me. Thou hast taught me from my youth, and hitherto have I declared Thy wondrous works.
