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 en

dureth 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 there

of, the world, and they that dwell therein. For He has founded it, upon the sea, and es

tablished 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 false

hood, 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, 0 ye gates! lift your

selves 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, 0 ye gates! lift your

selves 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, 0 earth;

break forth into singing, O mountains; For the Lord hath comforted His people and

will have mercy on Ilis afflicted. The Lord shall comfort Zion, He will make

her wilderness like Eden, and her desert

like the garılen 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 evil: 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 wis

dom 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, for

sake 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.
