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 67

Psalm 67
The nation's prosperity and the church's increase.

1 Shine, mighty God, on Britain shine
With beams of heavenly grace;
Reveal thy power thro' all our coasts,
And shew thy smiling face.

2 [Amidst our isle, exalted high,
Do thou our glory stand,
And like a wall of guardian fire
Surround the favourite land.]

3 When shall thy Name, from shore to shore,
Sound all the earth abroad,
And distant nations know and love
Their Saviour and their God?

4 Sing to the Lord, ye distant lands,
Sing loud with solemn voice;
While British tongues exalt his praise,
And British hearts rejoice.

5 He the great Lord, the sovereign Judge,
That sits enthron'd above,
Wisely commands the worlds he made
In justice and in love.

6 Earth shall obey her Maker's will,
And yield a full increase;
Our God will crown his chosen isle
With fruitfulness and peace.

7 God the Redeemer scatters round
His choicest favours here,
While the creation's utmost bound
Shall see, adore, and fear.

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"



"God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us; Selah. That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations. Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for thou shalt judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth." Psa 67:1-4 KJV
