Page 157 - The Lord, ye know, is God indeed, Without our aid he did us make ; We are his flock, he doth us feed, And for his sheep he doth us take. 3 O enter then his gates with praise, Approach with joy his courts unto; Praise, laud, and bless his name always, For it is seemly so to do. 4 For why? the Lord our God is good, His mercy is for ever sure; His truth at all times firmly stood, And shall from age to age endure.
Page 21 - THE Lord descended from above, And bowed the heavens most high; And underneath his feet he cast The darkness of the sky. 2 On cherub and on cherubim, Full royally, he rode ; And on the wings of mighty winds Came flying all abroad.
Page xxi - God, the sufferings of Christ, the terrors of wrath, the comforts of grace, the works of Providence over this world, and the promised joys of that world which is to come, all good necessarily to be either known, or done, or had, this one celestial fountain yieldeth.

With regard to the Jews, Bishop Chandler very pertinently remarks, that " they must have understood David, their prince, to have been a...
Page 238 - Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow : Praise Him all creatures here below ; Praise Him above, angelic host, Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
Page 240 - GLORY be to God the Father! Glory be to God the Son! Glory be to God the Spirit! Great Jehovah, Three in One ! Glory, glory, While eternal ages run!
Page 71 - God is gone up with a merry noise, The Lord with the trumpet's swelling mirth: To our King give praise; in God rejoice, For our God is King of all the earth.
Page xviii - Edom, and Philistia ; or for deliverance from Babylon ? There are no such nations, no such places in the world. What then do we mean, when, taking such expressions into our mouths, we utter them in our own persons, as parts of our devotions, before God ? Assuredly we must mean a spiritual Jerusalem and Sion : a spiritual ark and temple; a spiritual law; spiritual sacrifices; and spiritual victories over spiritual enemies; all described under 'the old names, which are still retained, though "old...
Page 237 - To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, One God, whom we adore, Be glory as it was, is now, And shall be evermore.
