Psalme Cxxxvii.
by John Donne

By Euphrates' flowry side
We did bide,
From deare Juda faire absented,
Tearing the aire with our cryes ;
And our eyes
With their streames his streame augmented.

When, poore Syon's dolefull state,
Desolate ;
Sacked, burned, and inthrall'd,

Psalm Lvii
by George Wither

Lord, grant, oh grant me thy compassion ;
For I in thee my trust haue placed ;
Display thy wings for my saluation,
Until my greefs are over-passed.
To thee I sue, Oh God most high,
To thee that canst all want supplie.

From their despights who seek to rend mee,
Let help, O Lord ! from heaven be daigned,
And let thy truth and loue defend me ;

Psalm Cxxxvii
by Henry Ainsworth

By Babel's rivers there sate wee,
Yea wept, when wee did mind Sion;
The willowes that amidds it bee
Our harps we hanged them upon :
For songs of us there ask did they
That had us captive led along;
And mirth they that us heaps did lay.
Sing unto us some Sion's song.

Jehovah's song how sing shall wee

Psalm Xxiii
by Henry Ainsworth

Jehovah feedeth me, I shall not lack;
In grassy folds he down doth make me lye,
He gently leads me quiet waters by,
He doth return my soul: for his name sake
In paths of justice leads me quietly.
Yea, though I walk in dale of deadly shade.
He fear none ill, for with me thou wilt be;
Thy rod, thy staff, eke they shall comfort me:
Fore me a table thou hast ready made,
In their presence that my distressers be:

Psalm Vii
by Joseph Hall

On thee, O Lord my God, relies
My onely trust from bloudy spight;
Of all my raging enemies
Oh let thy mercy me acquite;
Lest they, like greedy lyons, rend
My soule, while none shall it defend.

O Lord, if I this thing have wrought;
If in my hands be found such ill;
If I with mischief ever sought

Amidst his holy congregation ;
Shew forth his works, set forth his fame,
Sing praise, sing praise unto his name ;
And let the heart, and tongue, and voice
Of them that love the Lord, rejoice.

O seeke and search his power supemall;
O seeke and sue to come in sight

Psalm I
by Joseph Hall

Who hath not walkt astray
In wicked men's aduise,
Nor stood in sinners' way,
Nor in their companies
That scorners are,
As their fit mate,
In scoffing chayre
Hath euer sate;

But in thy lawes diuine,
