A Psalme to be said after trouble escaped.

MY soule reioice in God, for he is my light, and my defence, my helpe, the lanterne to my feet. He hath heard my praier, when I called on him, he hath holpen me in my neede, he hath Page  195 deliuered me in my dangers. The Lord is the keeper of my life, from whome shall I shrinke; whome shall I feare? Lieng prostrate at the feete of my Lord, I be∣wailed my case, and he heard my plaint; he forsaketh not his seruants. Wherefore, if armies of men stood vp against me, I should not feare. For if God be on my side, who can preuaile against me? He is happie and safe, whome God, the mightie God of Israel keepeth. The Sun shall not burne him by daie, nor the Moone by night. Chrise blessed is he that feareth the Lord, for he shall see happie daies. As the Hart thirsteth af∣ter the water springs, so my soule hath longed for my Lord, the liuing God. When shall I come to appeare before thy presence, to see thee in thy glorious maiestie, face to face? O Lord let thy kingdome come. Come Lord Iesus, that I may see the daie of my redemption. Good Lord make hast to helpe me. All glorie, maiestie, and empire, be vnto God the Creator, God the Redee∣mer, and God the holie Comforter, for euer and euer,

Amen.
