Psalm 91:1 First Part (he That Hath Made His Refuge God)

Psalm 91:1. 1-7. First Part
Safety in public diseases and dangers.


He that hath made his refuge God,
Shall find a most secure abode,
Shall walk all day beneath his shade,
And there at night shall rest his head.

Then will I say, "My God, thy power
"Shall be my fortress and my tower;
"I that am form'd of feeble dust
"Make thine almighty arm my trust."

Thrice happy man! thy Maker's care
Shall keep thee from the fowler's snare,
Satan, the fowler, who betrays
Unguarded souls a thousand ways.

Just as a hen protects her brood
From birds of prey that seek their blood,
Under her feathers, so the Lord
Makes his own arm his people's guard.

If burning beams of noon conspire
To dart a pestilential fire,
God is their life; his wings are spread
To shield them with an healthful shade.

If vapours with malignant breath
Rise thick and scatter midnight death,
Israel is safe; the poison'd air
Grows pure if Israel's God be there.

PAUSE.

What though a thousand at thy side,
At thy right hand ten thousand dy'd,
Thy God his chosen people saves
Amongst the dead, amidst the graves.

So when he sent his angel down
To make his wrath in Egypt known,
And slew their sons, his careful eye
Pass'd all the doors of Jacob by.

But if the fire, or plague, or sword,
Receive commission from the Lord
To strike his saints among the rest,
Their very pains and deaths are blest.

The sword, the pestilence or fire
Shall but fulfil their best desire,
From sins and sorrows set them free,
And bring thy children, Lord, to thee.

Psalm 91:2 Second Part (ye Sons Of Men, A Feeble Race)
Psalm 91:2. 1-16. Second PartProtection from death, guard ofangels, victory and deliverance. Ye sons of men, a feeble race,Expos'd to every snare,Come make the Lord your dwelling-place,And try and trust his care. No ill shall enter where you dwell;Or if the plague come nigh,And sweep the wicked down to hell,'Twill raise his saints on high. He'll give his angels charge to keepYour feet in all their ways;To watch your pillow while you sleep,And guard your happy days. Their hands shall bear you, lest you fallAnd dash against the stones:Are they not servants at his call,And sent t' attend his sons? Adders

Psalm 90:5 (lord What A Feeble Piece)
Psalm 90:5. 5 10 12. S. M.The frailty and shortness of life.Lord what a feeble pieceIs this our mortal frame!Our life how poor a trifle 'tis,That scarce deserves the name!Alas the brittle clayThat built our body first!And every month, and every day'Tis mouldering back to dust. Our moments fly apace,Nor will our minutes stay;Just like a flood our hasty daysAre sweeping us away.Well if our days must fly,We'll keep their end in sight,We'll spend them all in wisdom's way,And let them speed their flight.They'll waft us sooner o'erThis life's tempestuous sea:Soon we shall reach the peaceful shoreOf blest eternity.(The end)Isaac Watts's
