A Commentary On The Psalms From Primitive and Mediæval Writers Volumes 1 To 4 by Rev. J.M. Neale D.D.

O GOD of surpassing sweetness, (Lu.) Whom the whole earth praiseth because of Thy merciful pleasantness, we beseech Thee to take away from us the error of vain superstition, that we may be joined unto Thy will. (1.)

O LORD,* Who bringing the clouds from the ends of the earth, hast filled the whole world with holy teachers; mercifully turn Thy lightning into rain, that Thou mayest refresh with Thy blessing Thy servants, whom for their correction Thou refreshest with Thy precepts, and filling them with Thy grace, mayest bless them yet more abundantly. (11.)

We praise Thee,* O LORD, because Thou art good and gracious, grant therefore that while we persevere in Thy praise, Thou mayest call us away from the allurements of the world, and win us to the fellowship of the perfect. (11.)

We praise Thee,* O LORD, because Thou art merciful and great, and Thy wondrous works bear witness to Thy might and goodness. Great art Thou, O LORD, in making out of nothing such marvellous and manifold things; merciful too, in restoring a perishing world with the Blood of Thy CHRIST; great in quickening the corpses of the dead, merciful, and giving everlasting life to them whom Thou hast revived. Grant us, Thy humble servants, Almighty GOD, to understand the power of such great might, and to receive the peace of Thy graciousness. (11.)

Choose us, (D. C.) O LORD, to be Israel, for Thy possession, and after our strife with our enemies, establish us in peace, granting us to serve Thee in freedom, that enjoying this liberty, we may gladly sing unto Thy Name, which is sweet, and ever bless and praise Thee, O LORD. (1.)
