Psalm 42:1 First Part (with Earnest Longings Of The Mind)

Psalm 42:1. 1-5. First Part
Desertion and hope; or, Complaint
of absence from public worship.


With earnest longings of the mind,
My God, to thee I look;
So pants the hunted hart to find
And taste the cooling brook.

When shall I see thy courts of grace,
And meet my God again?
So long an absence from thy face
My heart endures with pain.

Temptations vex my weary soul,
And tears are my repast;
The foe insults without control,
"And where's your God at last?"

'Tis with a mournful pleasure now
I think on ancient days;
Then to thy house did numbers go,
And all our work was praise.

But why, my soul, sunk down so far
Beneath this heavy load?
Why do my thoughts indulge despair,
And sin against my God?

Hope in the Lord, whose mighty hand
Can all thy woes remove;
For I shall yet before him stand,
And sing restoring love.

Psalm 42:2 Second Part (my Spirit Sinks Within Me, Lord)
Psalm 42:2. 6-11. Second PartMelancholy thoughts reproved;or, Hope in afflictions.My spirit sinks within me, Lord,But I will call thy name to mind,And times of past distress record,When I have found my God was kind.Huge troubles, with tumultuous noise,Swell like a sea, and round me spread;Thy water-spouts drown all my joys,And rising waves roll o'er my head.Yet will the Lord command his love,When I address his throne by day,Nor in the night his grace remove;The night shall hear me sing and pray.I'll cast myself before his feet,And say "My God, my heavenly Rock,"Why doth thy love so long forget"The soul that groans

Psalm 41 (blest Is The Man Whose Bowels Move)
Psalm 41. 1 2 3Charity to the poor; or, Pity to the afflicted.Blest is the man whose bowels move,And melt with pity to the poor,Whose soul, by sympathising love,Feels what his fellow-saints endure.His heart contrives for their reliefMore good than his own hands can do;He, in the time of general grief,Shall find the Lord has bowels too.His soul shall live secure on earth,With secret blessings on his head,When drought, and pestilence, and dearthAround him multiply their dead.Or if he languish on his couch,God will pronounce his sins forgiv'n,Will save him with a healing touch,Or take his willing soul to heaven.(The end)Isaac
