Yea, even when I am old and gray-headed

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.

203.

GLORY IN HIS HOLY NAME. Glory ye in His holy name; let the heart of

them rejoice that seek the Lord. Seek ye the Lord and His strength; seek His

face for evermore. Remember His marvelous works, that He has

done, His wonders and his judgment for evermore.

204.

PRAISE YE THE LORD, ALL YE NATIONS. Praise ye the Lord, all ye nations; ye people

praise Him. For his merciful kindness is great towards us,

and His truth endureth forever.

205.

THE LORD IS MY HELP.

I lift mine eyes unto the mountains; whence

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.

206.

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.

207.

BROTHERLY LOVE.

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.

208.

THE LORD IS MERCIFUL.

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

Thee.

209.

THE RANSOMED OF THE LORD.

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.

210.

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!

211.

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.

212.

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.

213.

COMFORT MY PEOPLE.

Comfort ye, comfort ye, my people! saith

your God.

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.
