FIRST ALPHABETIC PRAISE SONG. Alleluia! I thank Jehovah with all my heart, Both in the council of upright and in the congregation. Chiefest are Jeheivah's deeds, Desired of all that love them; Excellent majesty His work; For His righteousness abideth ever. Gracious and merciful is Jehovah; His wonders hath made remembered. Jehovah gave His fearers food, Keepeth His covenant ever, Letteth His people know His mighty deeds, Maketh nations to be their heritage. Never failing all His precepts Of His hand come truth and justice Precepts established forever, Quintessence of truth and right. Reelemption hath He sent His people, Stablished His covenant forever; Terrible and holy is His name. Arery wise are they that serve Him; Wisdom beginneth with Jehovah's fear Yea, His praise abideth ever. SECOND ALPHABETIC PRAISE SONG. Alway would I extol, My God, O King, And bless thy name forever; Bless Thee every day, And praise Thy name forever. Constantly would Jehovah be praised, Who is great; unsearchable His greatness. Down the ages shall they land Thy deeds Anel declare Thine acts of prowess. Ever will I muse upon Thy wondrous works. The gloriems majesty ef Thine honor; For we shall tell of Thine awful might; Anel I will recount Thy greatness. Great is Thy goodness; its memory shall they utter. Anel of Thy righteousness shall they sing; Hov gracious anel merciful Is Jehovah Slow to anger and of great love! Jehovah is good to all, And His mercies over all His work Know all Thy works, Thy praise, J hovah, And bless Thee Thy saints; Let them tell the glory of Thy king dom, Anel declare Thy prowess; Making known His prowess to the sons of men, And the glorious majesty of His kingdom ; Prostrate ones Jehovah raiseth; He supporteth all that fall. Raiseei are the eyes of all to Thee, Anel Thou givest them food in its season ; Stretchest forth Thine hand, And satest the de - sire of all creatures, The Lord is righteNius in all His ways, And loving in all His works. Unto all that call upon Him Jehovah is nigh. Unto all that call upon Him faith fully. What His fearers wish He doeth; Their cry He heareth and saveth them, Y'ea, Jehovah kecpeth all that love Him; But all the wicked He destroyeth. Zealously will I tell Jehovah's praise Let all bless His holy name forever F. S. Ballentine.
