PSALM CXVII.

I.
1 YE Nations, who the Globe divide,
2 Ye num'rous Nations scatter'd wide,
3 To GOD your grateful Voices raise:
4 To all his boundless Mercy's shown,
5 His Truth to endless Ages known
6 Require our endless Love and Praise.
II.
7 To Him who reigns enthron'd on high,
8 To his dear Son, who deign'd to die
9 Our Guilt and Errors to remove;
10 To that blest Spirit who Grace imparts,
11 Who rules in all Believing Hearts,
12 Be ceaseless Glory, Praise and Love!
