for Christmas Dap.

GLO

LORY be to God in the highest, on earth

peace, good will toward men. Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound; they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance;

Through the tender mercies of our God, whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us;

To give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, and to guide our feet in the way of peace.

How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of him who bringeth good tidings; who publisheth peace; who bringeth good tidings of good; who publisheth salvation; who saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth.

There is sprung up a light for the righteous, and joyful gladness for such as are true of heart.

Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

Sing unto the LORD, and praise his name; be telling of his salvation from day to day.

1

Let all those who seek him be joyful and glad in him, and let all such as love his salvation say always, The LORD be praised.

PSALM XLV.

MY

Y heart is inditing joyful words; I speak of

the things concerning the King; my tongue is as the pen of a ready scribe.

Thou art the fairest of the children of men; full of grace are thy lips; for God hath blessed thee for ever.

Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O thou Mighty One, with thy glory and thy majesty.

And in thy majesty ride prosperously, for the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.

Thy throne, O God, endureth for ever; the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.

Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; wherefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

I will make thy name to be remembered to all generations; so that the people shall praise thee for ever and ever.

PSALM LXXXV.

thou hast turned away the captivity of Jacob.
