Great is our Lord, and of great power: His
understanding is infinite.
The Lord lifteth up the meek i He casteth the wicked down to the ground.
Sing unto the Lord with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp unto our God.
Who covereth the heaven with clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.
He giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry.
He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: He taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man.
The Lord taketh pleasure in them that fear Him, in those that hope in His mercy.
Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem ; praise thy God, O Zion.
For He hath strengthened the bars of thy gates; He hath blessed thy children within thee.
He maketh peace in thy borders^ and filleth thee with the finest of the wheat.
He sendeth forth His commandment upon earth : His word runneth very swiftly.
He giveth snow like wool: He scattereth the hoar-frost like ashes.
He casteth forth His ice like morsels: who can stand before His cold ?
He sendeth out His word, and melteth them : Hecauseth His wind to blow.and the waters flow.
He sh.'^eth His word unto Jacob, His statutes and His judgments unto Israel.
He hath not dealt so with any nation: and as for His judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye the Lord.

For we are consumed by Thine anger, and by Thy wrath are we troubled.
Thou hast set our iniquities before Thee, our secret sins in the light of Thy countenance.
For all our days are passed away in Thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told.
The days of our years are threescore years and ten ; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labor and sorrow ; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
Who knoweth the power of Thine anger? even according to Thy fear, so is Thy wrath.
So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
Return, O Lord, how long ? and let it repent Thee concerning Thy servants.
O satisfy us early with Thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
Make us glad according to the days wherein Thou hast afflicted us, and the years wherein we have seen evil.
Let Thy work appear unto Thy servants, and Thy glory unto their children.
And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us: and establish Thou the work of out hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands, establish Thou it

The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: He uttered his voice, the earth melted.
The Lord of hosts is with us ; the God ox Jacob is our refuge.
Come, behold the works of the Lord, whal desolations He hath made in the earth.
He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; He breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; He burneth the chariot in the fire.
Be still, and know that I am God : I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
The Lord of hosts is with us; the God o! Jacob is our refuge.
Be merciful unto me, O God, be mercifm unto me: for my soul trusteth in Thee: yea, in the shadow of Thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast.

Deliver me from all my transgressions : make me not the reproach of the foolish.
Hear my prayer, O Lord, and give ear unto my cry ; hold not Thy peace at my tears • for I am a stranger with Thee, and a sojourner, as all my fathers were.
O spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go hence, and be no more.
Lord, Thou hast been our dwelling-place in all generations.
Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever Thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, Thou art God.
Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of men.
For a thousand years in Thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night
Thou earnest them away as with a flood ; they are as a sleep: in the morning they are like grass which groweth up.
