That at the end I did intend

To have them all appear,
Though he to sin did sure begin

To shame his Maker there;
But now, at last, the Psalms are plac'd,

A heart so much like thine-
And now the mysteries I shall clear,

To bring it to mankind.
The thoughts of thee are join'd with me,

Throughout my Bible here,
To bring it on the enemy,

That did to her appear,
I say, at first when she was cast

'Twas Satan causa her fall.
No blame on me was brought by she

And now I'll answer all:
My honour here l'll prove it clear,

For to avenge her blow;
Because that she doth honour ME,

And that you all must know.
Now as the verse before thy view,

Thy pondering heart I see;
But not like Man to have it come,

Then now I'll join with thee."Psalm clx. 9, 10, 11-As for the head of those that compass me about, let the mischief of their own lips cover them. Let burning coals fall upon them; let them be cast into the fire ; into deep pits, that they rise not up again. Let not an evil speaker be established in the earth : evil shall hunt the violent man to oyerthrow him,

“ Now, here within thou dost begin

To ponder from tlie word.
The heart of Man to thee's unknown,

If he could wish the Lord,
Such vengeance take as he did speak,

'Tis cruel unto thee;
But from the ponderings in thy heart,

Thou'st wish'd it so to be,
To fall on hell, as he doth swell

All ages to destroy;
As thou'st look back to see the wreck,

Man never did enjoy
A life of peace did he possess,
...As Satan's arts were strong.
Therefore the ponderings in thy heart,

Like David now thou'lt turn
A different way, I now do say,

And yet thou wish the whole

OF THE PSALMS.

133 Upon the Tempter's head to lay,

And in the pit to fall.
Thou wishd him there, to rise no more,

To be a plague to Man;
And David's spirit must be there,

To wish it so to come,
Whatever way is judg'd by thee

Did in his heart appear.
He ne'er could judge that wicked men

Could all be rooted here,
While Satan's reign did still remain

So strong to work in Van.
'The way that David did contend,

Twas for the end to come ;
And now in thee the end they'll see,

'Thou'st find all to the roof,
For to destroy the enemy,

That did tempt ler to the fruit,
That evil here ini,ht strons appear ;

But now I'll cut him down.-
A David's heart in thee is here,

Though'tis a different sound;
A different way, I now do say,

Thou'st wish'd to have it som
That all the evil in the earth

May be cast down below;
That is the thing that brought in sin

By Satan's arts 'twas done ;
And him thou'st wish'd to overthrow,

He might no longer stand ;
Because that sin bath ever been,

Ever since Adam's Fall;
Till Satan's cast thou know'st 'twill last,

And sorrow bring on all.” Psalin clxii. 4— I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would know me,

“ Now here's a word thou dost not understand;
The words of David no man cau command,
What in his heart he ponder'd and did pen-
And here's a verse ne'cr understood by men.
Could David sav, that no man did know he?
No: here's a mystery I shall answer thee:
For I'm the man that no one here doth know,
That I did come to seck the overthrow
Of the proud Tenipter, that at first betray'd,
And bring the every guilt upon his licad.
But know, by Man I could not do at first;
Because on me the guilt he surely cast,
To rive the Woman then into his care;
And so the guilt both her and I did share;
But as the Woman cast it on his head,
And said 'twas the Serpent that had lier betray'd;
And as the Woman then did cast it tiere,
So her and I will come the whole to clear.

So here's a mystery that no man doth know
I came to die, that he might feel the blow;
And yet the words vo man e'er understood,
Nor knew my DEATH which way for to allude.
That I should come and suffer so for Man,
And let the Jews so strong against me stand,
If that the merit of my DEATH end there,
I ask, my mercies how they could appear?
Because that refuge in Me they found none;
Nor any refuge did I find in them;
Because you know, they clamour'd for my Blood
Then how my Bible is it understood,
That all the earth should come and worship ME?
The verse before thee let the Nation see."

Psalm cxxxviii. 4—All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O LORD, when they hear the words of thy mouth,

« Now, from these words, let all men answer,

Can they prove 'twas ever so?
Yet if I was David's Master,

All his words must sure come true;
Because of me, all Hesh shall see,

He prophesied before;
And in the end 'tis my intend

His every word to clear.
So here's the word that's on record,

That now I'll make to stand;
It is the WORD now of the LORD

Shall go through every land, :
My BIBLE here I now shall clear,

And it I'll all fulfil;
And when my wonders do appear,

I shall the whole fulfil."

Psalın cxxxii. 15. to the end I will abundantly bless her provision : I will satisfy her poor with bread. I will also clothe her priests with salvation : and her saints shall shout aloud for joy. There will I make the horn of David to bud : I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed. His enemies will I clotbe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.

« Now here again, I say to men,

My Bible none do see:
Though it was spoke of David's reign,

It be'er was done by he;

135,

OF THE PSALMS. .
But know that I, who dwell on high,

With David did compare;
llis ruot and uffsprig i did say

Then now discern it here;
The root in me must surely be,

To make the BLOSSOM come: .
And here's the BUD, you all shall see;

The LAMP that must be known;
The ANOINTED see it sure was ME,

To bring these blessings dowli.
From David it could never be,

His foes for to contound;
No; 'tis MY NAME the whole shall shame;

On me the CROWN shall stand,
When I appear to govern here,

And reign in every land."

Psalm cxix. 160. 166. 174-Thy word is true from the beginning, and every one of thy righteous judyments endurech for ever. Lord, I have hoped for thy salvation, and done thy commandments. I have longed for thy salvation, O Lord; and thy law is my delight.

* Now here to Man again I'll come:

The Psalms stand deep for thee;
And perfect as the words are penn d,

Thy heart' I know to le.
Then from the first I now shall burst,

From the beginning here;
And at the last when all is cast,

They'll find my judgments clear.
Then righteousness, in perfect peace,

For ever shall endure;
And from the Psalmos, that thou hast penn'd,

MY COVENANT is sure.
So now the Psalmist all weigh deep-

Tl:y life in it they'll see;
Though they deny - it is a lie

“ for David 'tis and me;
They'll own it true, before their view,

For David it does stand;
And own of me he prophesied;

But thee they will condemn --
To sas, that there can cushi appear

A Prophecy of thee.
Now pen the verse thou'st marked hicre,

And then I'll answer the..."

Psalm cii. 6,7,8-I am like a pelican of the wil. Gezikss: I am like an owl of the desert, I watch,

Ver. 18. 26. 22-This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the Lord.
