Psalm 146:1 (praise Ye The Lord, My Heart Shall Join)

Psalm 146:1. L. M.
Praise to God for his goodness and truth.


Praise ye the Lord, my heart shall join
In work so pleasant, so divine,
Now, while the flesh is mine abode,
And when my soul ascends to God.

Praise shall employ my noblest powers,
While immortality endures;
My days of praise shall ne'er be past,
While life and thought and being last.

Why should I make a man my trust?
Princes must die and turn to dust;
Their breath departs, their pomp and power
And thoughts, all vanish in an hour.

Happy the man whose hopes rely
On Israel's God: he made the sky,
And earth and seas with all their train,
And none shall find his promise vain.

His truth for ever stands secure;
He saves th' opprest, he feeds the poor;
He sends the labouring conscience peace,
And grants the prisoner sweet release.

The Lord hath eyes to give the blind;
The Lord supports the sinking mind;
He helps the stranger in distress,
The widow and the fatherless.

He loves his saints, he knows them well,
But turns the wicked down to hell:
Thy God, O Zion, ever reigns;
Praise him in everlasting strains.

Psalm 145:4. 14 17 &c. Third PartMercy to sufferers; or, God hearing prayer.Let every tongue thy goodness speak,Thou sovereign Lord of all;Thy strengthening hands uphold the weak,And raise the poor that fall.When sorrow bows the spirit down,Or virtue lies distrestBeneath some proud oppressor's frown,Thou giv'st the mourners rest. The Lord supports our tottering days,And guides our giddy youth;Holy and just are all his ways,And all his words are truth.He knows the pains his servants feel,He hears his children cry,And their best wishes to fulfilHis grace is ever nigh.His mercy never shall removeFrom men of heart sincere;He saves the souls whose humble
