A Psalme of exhortation to praier in the morning or euening.

O Come, let vs worship & fall downe, and kneele before the Lord our ma∣ker; and let vs hartilie reioice in the strength of our saluation.

Let our soules reioice, I saie, in the mercie of the Lord, and not be asha∣med to publish his praise. Let vs doo our duties betimes, both earlie and late, and he will giue vs a reward in his due time.

Page  425 For a good thing it is to giue thanks vnto the Lord, and to tell of his louing kindnesse earlie in the mor∣ning.

O come therefore, praise the Lord with me, and let vs magnifie his name together.

Bring hither the booke, take the Psalter, and sing vnto the Lord a new song. Let vs sing praises, I saie, lustilie vnto him, with a good courage, and shew our selues glad in him with Psalmes; euen now in the time appointed, and vpon our solemne feast-daie.

For great is the Lord, and highlie to be praised in the Citie of our God, euen vpon his holie hill of Zion.

Glorie be to the, &c. As it was in the, &c.
