The prophet here rests his foul upon God. He has
been in the foregoing psalms making many prayers, and in this he declares his perfect confidence in being heard and answered. In this faith he defies his enemies, and excites himfelf to continue waiting upon God. He rejects all creature supports, and relies wholly upon the power of the Almighty. This is a most blessed lesson for us. May we learn it of him, who has practised it, and who alone can teach it, even our great prophet. By his word, and by bis Spirit he can enable us to trust him at all times and in all cases. The Lord give us this faith. The Lord increase it where it is given, that while we are now exercising it, we may have fresh reason to thank him for it. O for an high song of faith to day. It would redound much to the glory of a promisekeeping God. May he be greatly exalted, and then our souls will be greatly refreshed, in finging this psalm.

on God my chief desire, From ey’ry ill me to defend
none but him I desire.

and my strong rock is he, He only is my sure defence, I shall not moved be..
II. . In God my glory placed is
senlaced is and my salvation sure, In God the rock is of my strength my refuge most secure.
III. o put your trust in him alway
ye folk with one accord,
the God whom we adore, Be glory as it was, is now,
and shall be evermore.

IV. i Yea mercy also unto chee
belongs, O Lord, alone : For thou according to his work
wilt reward ev'ry one.
