THE 8TH, 9TH, AND 10TH VERSES OF THE 57TH PSALM.

1 Awake, my glory, ere the rosy morn
2 Shall with a vivid blush the skies adorn,
3 Before the sun arise to break the day,
4 Awake, and chace thy gloomy sleep away.
5 Awake, soft lute, awake, my tuneful lyre,
6 With sacred transports my warm breast inspire;
7 Awake, each faculty, awake and sing
8 In holy rapture to my heav'nly King.
[Page 87]
9 In notes divine let my glad verse proclaim
10 His mighty goodness and eternal name;
11 Let my loud praises thro' the world resound,
12 Whilst wond'ring nations listen all around.
13 But, O my God, thy wonders are too great
14 For tongue to speak, or verse to celebrate,
15 So vast thy mercies and thy truth so high,
16 They pierce the clouds and reach beyond the sky.
