Psalm 39:3 Third Part (god Of My Life, Look Gently Down)

Psalm 39:3. 9-13. Third Part
Sick-bed devotion; or, Pleading without repining.


God of my life, look gently down,
Behold the pains I feel;
But I am dumb before thy throne,
Nor dare dispute thy will.

Diseases are thy servants, Lord,
They come at thy command;
I'll not attempt a murmuring word
Against thy chastening hand.

Yet I may plead with humble cries,
Remove thy sharp rebukes;
My strength consumes, my spirit dies
Thro' thy repeated strokes.

Crush'd as a moth beneath thy hand,
We moulder to the dust;
Our feeble powers can ne'er withstand,
And all our beauty's lost.

(This mortal life decays apace,
How soon the bubble's broke!
Adam and all his numerous race
Are vanity and smoke.)

I'm but a sojourner below,
As all my fathers were,
May I be well prepar'd to go
When I the summons hear.

But if my life be spar'd awhile,
Before my last remove,
Thy praise shall be my business still,
And I'll declare thy love.

Psalm 40:1. 1 3 5 17. First Part. C. M.A song of deliverance from great distress.I waited patient for the Lord,He bow'd to hear my cry;He saw me resting on his word,And brought salvation nigh.He rais'd me from a horrid pitWhere mourning long I lay,And from my bonds releas'd my feet,Deep bonds of miry clay.Firm on a rock he made me stand,And taught my cheerful tongueTo praise the wonders of his hand,In a new thankful song.I'll spread his works of grace abroad;The saints with joy shall hear,And sinners learn to make my GodTheir only hope and fear.How many are thy thoughts

Psalm 39:2 Second Part (teach Me The Measure Of My Days)
Psalm 39:2. 4-7. Second PartThe vanity of man as mortal.Teach me the measure of my days,Thou maker of my frame;I would survey life's narrow space,And learn' how frail I am.A span is all that we can boast,An inch or two of time;Man is but vanity and dustIn all his flower and prime.See the vain race of mortals moveLike shadows o'er the plain;They rage and strive, desire and love,But all the noise is vain.Some walk in honour's gaudy show,Some dig for golden ore,They toil for heirs, they know not who,And straight are seen no more.What should I wish or wait for thenFrom
