Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly in all Wisdom; teaching
and admonishing one another in Psalms, and Hymns, and spiritual
To be had of J. KAY, CLERK, only.
OW bless'd is he who ne'er consents,
By ill advice to walk;
Where men profanely talk.
His business and delight; Devoutly reads therein by day,
And meditates by night. 3. Like some fair tree, which,fed by streams,
With timely fruit does bend; He still shall flourish, and success All his designs attend,
4. For God approves the just man's ways,
To happiness they tend;
God's uncontroul'd decree :
Have I begotten thee. <3 ? Ask and receive thy full demands,
Thine shall the heathen be, The utmost limits of the land
Your timely homage pay,
Incens'd by your delay.
Who can endure the fame :
On his most holy name,
Flee ev'ry thing that's ill :
And bend them to his will. 2. The place of other sacrifice,
Let righteousness supply,
On God alone rely,
More prosp'rous times to fee; Still let the glories of thy face,
Shine brightly, Lord, on me. 4. To Father, Son, and Holy-Ghost,
The God whom we adore, Be glory, as it was, is now,
And shall be evermore.
