INSTRUCTIONS TO SHORTEN A HYMN:

If the hymn is too long for the time allowed, or for the usual manner of singing, there are "pauses" included in many of them where the singers may rest. In some cases a hymn may be started at a "pause" break. Some hymns have certain verses contained within square brackets [ ] which may be omitted entirely without disturbing the sense of the hymn.

Original wording of these instructions may be read in "Of dividing the Psalms," in Isaac Watts' "Preface."

Excerpt (Hymn) From
"The Psalms of David"
by Isaac Watts

Psalm 41

Psalm 41. 1 2 3.
Charity to the poor; or, Pity to the afflicted.

1 Blest is the man whose bowels move,
And melt with pity to the poor,
Whose soul, by sympathising love,
Feels what his fellow-saints endure.

2 His heart contrives for their relief
More good than his own hands can do;
He, in the time of general grief,
Shall find the Lord has bowels too.

3 His soul shall live secure on earth,
With secret blessings on his head,
When drought, and pestilence, and dearth
Around him multiply their dead.

4 Or if he languish on his couch,
God will pronounce his sins forgiv'n,
Will save him with a healing touch,
Or take his willing soul to heaven.

Hymn by Isaac Watts, excerpted from "The Psalms of David, Imitated in the Language of the New Testament, and Applied to
the Christian State and Worship"



"Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble. The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies. The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness. I said, LORD, be merciful unto me: heal my soul; for I have sinned against thee." Psa 41:1-4 KJV
