Psalm 36:3 (when Man Grows Bold In Sin)

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 sin
My heart within me cries,
"He hath no faith of God within,
Nor fear before his eyes."

(He walks awhile conceal'd
In a self-flattering dream,
Till his dark crimes at once reveal'd
Expose 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 bed
New 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 cloud
Shall one great day appear.

His truth transcends the sky;
In heaven his mercies dwell;
Deep as the sea his judgments lie,
His anger burns to hell.

How excellent his love,
Whence all our safety springs!
O never let my soul remove
From underneath his wings.

Psalm 36:2. 1 2 5 6 7 9 C. MPractical 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 hourWhen they shall see with sore surpriseThe 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,
