No. 4

Egypt's king! as lead sinks he down beneath the mighty flood. Earth hath swallowed all.

GOD no more her tide restraining, all her shores the sea


Ne'er restoreth king or slave, her sad waste at once both shroud and grave.

No. 5

Strike your timbrels, Hebrew maidens, Miriam bids upraise the lay,

Mighty is the LORD at all times, mightier hail we Him to-day.



PSALM Xxiii. (Paraphrase.) The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to rest in green pastures, He leadeth me beside still waters, He giveth peace unto my soul, He leadeth me in paths of goodness, for His Name's sake. Yea, though I walk through death's dark vale of shadows, no evil will I fear, for Thou art still with me. Thy rod and staff, they comfort me. Thou preparest here a table for me in presence of mine enemies; my head with oil Thou anointest; my cup runneth over; yea, surely peace and mercy all my life shall follow me: and I will dwell with GOD for evermore.



For the Sunday called Quinquagesima.

O LORD, Who hast taught us that all our doings without charity are nothing worth; Send Thy Holy Ghost, and pour into our hearts that most excellent gift of charity, the very bond of peace and of all virtues, without which whosoever liveth is counted dead before Thee: Grant this for Thine only Son JESUS CHRIST'S sake. Amen.

II. She stretched out her branches unto the sea, and her boughs unto the river.

12. Why hast Thou then broken down her hedge, that all they that go by pluck off her grapes?

14. Turn Thee again, Thou GOD of Hosts: behold, and visit this vine.

[17. Let Thy hand be upon the man of Thy right hand, and upon the Son of Man, Whom Thou madest so strong for Thine own Self.]
