Psalm 36:2 (while Men Grow Bold In Wicked Ways!)

Psalm 36:2. 1 2 5 6 7 9 C. M
Practical atheism exposed; or,
The being and attributes of God asserted.


While men grow bold in wicked ways!
And yet a God they own,
My heart within me often says,
"Their thoughts believe there's none."

Their thoughts and ways at once declare
(Whate'er their lips profess)
God hath no wrath for them to fear,
Nor will they seek his grace.

What strange self-flattery blinds their eyes!
But there's an hastening hour
When they shall see with sore surprise
The terrors of thy power.

Thy justice shall maintain its throne,
Tho' mountains melt away;
Thy judgments are a world unknown,
A deep unfathom'd sea.

Above the heavens' created rounds,
Thy mercies, Lord, extend;
Thy truth outlives the narrow bounds,
Where time and nature end.

Safety to man thy goodness brings,
Nor overlooks the beast;
Beneath the shadow of thy wings
Thy children choose to rest.

(From thee, when creature-streams run low,
And mortal comforts die,
Perpetual springs of life shall flow,
And raise our pleasures high.

Tho' all created light decay,
And death close up our eyes
Thy presence makes eternal day
Where clouds can never rise.)

Psalm 36:3. 1-7. S. M.The wickedness of man, and the majesty of God;or. Practical atheism exposed.When man grows bold in sinMy heart within me cries,"He hath no faith of God within,Nor fear before his eyes."(He walks awhile conceal'dIn a self-flattering dream,Till his dark crimes at once reveal'dExpose his hateful name.)His heart is false and foul,His words are smooth and fair;Wisdom is banish'd from his soul,And leaves no goodness there.He plots upon his bedNew mischiefs to fulfil;He sets his heart, and hand, and head,To practise all that's ill.But there's a dreadful God,Tho' men renounce his fear;His justice hid behind the cloudShall one
