forsake me not, O God, until I have declared Thy power unto the next generation, Thy might to those coming after me.
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.

cometh my help? My help cometh from God who made heaven
and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to stumble; thy
Guardian does not slumber. Behold the Guardian of Israel doth neither
slumber nor sleep. The Lord will preserve thee when thou goes!
out and when thou comest in, from this time and forever.
OUT OF THE DEEP I CALL.
Out of the deep I called unto Thee, O Lord;
Lord, my God, I pray Thee, hear my crying. Let Thine ears well consider the voice of my
supplication. Shouldst Thou be extreme, Lord, to mark our
sins, Lord, my God, who may abide it? There is mercy with Thee; yea, with Thee
is mercy, therefore shalt Thou be feared. Mine eyes are looking unto the Lord, my soul
for Him is waiting. My hope is even in the
Lord God, yea, in His word is my trust. And He shall redeem thee, Israel, from all,
thine iniquities. Amen.
Behold how good and how pleasant it is for
brethren to dwell together in unity! Like the dew of Hermon that cometh down
upon the mountain of Zion. For there the Lord commandeth His blessings,
even life for evermore.

Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall
sustain thee. He never will suffer the
righteous to fall. He is at thy right hand. Thy mercy, Lord, is great, and far above
the heavens. Let none be made ashamed that wait upon

Praise the Lord, all ye nations, praise Him,
all ye people. The ransomed of the Lord shall return and
come to Zion with songs and everlasting
joys upon their heads. They shall obtain gladness and joy; and sor
row and sadness shall flee. Trust in the Lord forever, for in the Lord
Jehovah is everlasting strength.
THE LORD REIGNETH.
The Lord reigneth; He is clothed with
majesty; the Lord is clothed with majesty,
and girded with strength. Therefore the earth standeth firm, and can
not be moved. Thy throne was established of old; Thou art
from everlasting ! The floods, O Lord, lift up their voice; the
floods lift up their roaring! Mightier than the voice of many waters, are
the mighty waves of the sea ; But mightiest of all is the Lord in his lofty
habitation. Thy promises are most sure; holiness becom
eth Thy house, O Lord, for ever!
HE WILL GIVE HIS ANGELS CHARGE. For He shall give His angels charge over thee.
to keep thee in all thy ways; they shall bear thee in their hands, that thou hurt
not thy foot against stone. On Thee each living soul waits. From Thee,
O Lord, all seek their food. Thou openest Thy hand and fillest all with good. when Thy face, O Lord, is hid, with sudden terror they are struck. Thou takest their breath away; they vanish into dust. Thou sendest forth Thy breath again and life with vigor fresh returns. Revived earth unfolds new strength and new delights.
THE EYES OF ALL WAIT UPON THEE.
The eyes of all wait upon Thee, and Thou
givest them food in due season. Thou visitest the earth and blessest it; Thou crownest the year with Thy goodness. Oh, give thanks unto the Lord, for He is gracious, for His mercy endureth forever.
COMFORT MY PEOPLE.
Comfort ye, comfort ye, my people! saith
Speak ye to the heart of Jerusalem and cry
unto her: that her servitude is finished;
that her sin is pardoned. She has received at the Lord's hand double
for all her sins. The voice of one that crieth: Prepare ye in
the wilderness the way of the Lord. Make straight in the desert a highway for our
God; Every valley shall be exalted and every moun
tain and hill shall be made low; And the crooked shall be made straight and
the rough places plain; And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed,
and all flesh shall be it together. For the mouth of the Lord has spoken it.
